You're the one who made the claim, not me. I'm just going to assume you can't and are only saying that so you don't have to admit you're wrong.

Alex Jones is in Austin...A marketing genius that took pure BS on a halfassed public access channel and turned it into a right wing nut empire worth millions. I'd like to recommend his Caveman true Paleo formula, it's a great cure for whine attacks.

Thank God no fake news from my fellow Texan AJ....pure genius!!!!



It would appear that you are deflecting...why?



Just an illustration that there's plenty of bias to go around and it's not just limited to libs. So actually it's not a deflection. but education.

Try some of Alex's Caveman true paleo Formula....


Alex is a little loony but his supplements are on their game. Go figure. Not joking.

Orwell was an advocate of Democratic Socialism, believing that it is the only possible way for the future of our world. He stood in for a united Europe, thus wanting to save both world and people.

Welp, there goes your argument.

I made this claim...



But left-wing bias in general has been a mainstay of media and culture since god-knows-when. Countless books have been written on it.Orwell talked about it quite a bit back in the mid-20th century.


...And quoted examples.

You disputed it without evidence.

But I know what your casuistry amounts to: an attempt to fill up the void where your dogma lies, as you watch your orthodoxy fail to provide your answers.

Yes, Orwell’s was an avowed democratic socialist until death. Your point?

Orwell was a supporter of Democratic Socialism, he was left-leaning so what does that say about your argument? Why are you using a left-leaning socialist for your argument against left wing politics?

Well, I'm just going to start using quotes from Stalin to argue against communism. I'm sure you wouldn't find any problem with that.

Again, show me how the left wing of early to mid 20th century England is the same as today's left wing in America. I'm sure you have plenty of examples other than that one from a left leaning socialist to make your case.

I’m not sure what his politics have to do with anything.

Maybe using Orwell was a bad idea. I did appeal to his arguments, but only because he could explain it better than me. Give him a read sometime.

Doubtful, you make some of the most articulate threads I've seen. I may not always agree but I will give credit where it is due.

The dynamics of early to mid 20th century England's politics are completely different than the dynamics we see today in American politics. The left wing has changed a lot since then, and not for the better in a lot of areas. You can't just use a quote from nearly a hundred years ago and apply it to today's world, that's disingenuous.

You’re completely wrong. But right or wrong doesn’t matter. It is exactly how I feared.

you guys say liberal media bias is overwhelming... but how about some examples of it, like for example, from today's evening news out of any of the major tv networks? abc, nbc, cbs, pbs? not counting msnbc cnn or fox news, since those are infotainment programs.


Here's an example that I read in the news paper via the (dis) associated press, which was also parroted over the major liberal controlled networks, which talked about the NK problem by mentioning Kim Un's claims that Trump declared war on NK with his recent comments. What these articles left out was how Kim Un has already "declared war" on the USA and our allies (Japan and other places), when he said he would destroy the USA and other colorful descriptions of how he would destroy America.
So the news made the stories appear all one sided against Trump, as if it is all Trump that did all of this, when the truth is that it has actually been ALL Krazy Kim doing this for a long time.

Did you really need any example shown though, to show how pathetically biased the media is? It is in every single news story if you have the wherewithal to look and see it.

I'll give you a helpful hint: You must be absolutely HONEST. It is an amazing thing.

so this whole thread is based on one guy private messaging a facebook page for a paper and getting mad that they wouldn't indulge him in endless back and forth about why his comments got moderated?

seriously?

Yes. There are so many victims today, haven't you noticed.

Some might call them snowflakes.

and my point was that left-wing bias has applied longer and further than the circumference of your little bubble.


Of course. So has the "Right Wing" bias and their media publications.

Not sure why we should focus on one over the other.


Their tactics, plain and simple.


So it's not the actual bias that causes you to focus on what you consider the Leftist media, it's your emotional reaction (how it makes you feel) to how they do it...IE their tactics.

Ok. That doesn't make much.

The Austin American Statesman, hilarious and with their pay-wall, you are pretty much forced to pay for their Leftist propaganda if you want to read it. What a joke.

ITT: A grown man arguing with automated mail service robot suspects said system is a 'libitard' with an ulterior agenda and demands the artificial response system admit to it's nefarious plot. As expected the Libitard doesn't give into the simple demands, probably out of hate of America, Freedom, and Puppies.


Did I miss anything?

Can you also source what it was you wanted to post that was removed? Just curious. Thanks.

FYI....The Austin American Statesman is a private Corporation. They can run their business the way they see fit.
If you have a problem with that....start your own "news" organization like Alex Jones did.

Start here....

Exactly what I said. The bias does not concern you, it's how they do it.

In other words, you care not about the ends. It's the means that gets you.

I find it funny that you don't have a problem with either the Right's bias or their "tactics". Suppose partisanship helps people turn a blind eye.

I never said bias does not concern me, and I never said I don't have a problem with the right's bias or their tactics, so that would be assumption and another lie on your part. But your sophistry helps to elucidate, or at least hint towards the sort of tactics I am speaking about.
