the content you quoted states her Husband works for them...




What are you talking about? These are GamerGal's words:



She works for McCain, her husband works for him. The Obama campaign cut off farther interviews with her after finding out she's a McCain Minion.


I don't give a damn about her husband.

Gotcha


You quoted a different post last time hehe...

gamergal is mistaken here... unless you count the fact that she works for a fox affiliate.

Fox should be renamed GOP TV...

We'll rename MSNBC at the same time to something like Liberal Television.

MSNBC liberal? Might want to tell Pat Buchanon, Joe Scar whatever, that Pennsylvania House Member of the GOP who' always on there, and Ron Paul. I've never seen Ron Paul any where but MSNBC. Maybe name it "The Network with balance, and Keith Olbermann"

So, you aren't going to post anything of substance on this issue?? Just a quick: "Fox News is allowed to do this because I feel there is a bias elsewhere"???

I would not give further interviews to someone that has an obvious preference to who she would like to see win.....especially after they attacked me on live TV.

There is a big difference and the gap is wide between objective journalism....and what was contained in that "interview".

It was a completely loaded interview... I think Biden handled it okay. It showed how he reacts if he was caught off balance. Given Biden's history of saying whatever he thinks, he didn't gaff...

It was not a fair and balanced interview... however, this might be what Biden had coming to him. He hasn't really been high profile on the major networks (CNN wants him more often), instead opting to appear on local stations.

I can't honestly expect a local TV station to uphold the same neutral position as much as a major news network.

That is actually my point.....they should uphold that kind of integrity as JOURNALISTS.....unless of course they are just ENTERTAINERS.

She should have to put the little ( R ) next to her name when she gives interviews.....then at least she isn't ambushing anyone else and they see what they are walking in to(Not that she will get another chance).

DId you not see her interview with McCain? "John God McCain, why are you so great? How can we destroy America even more? Why don't we just bow down to you and worship you?" As opposed to "You're the devil, why do you worship Satan?" she did with Biden. And it matters that she, or her husband, or both, are McCain Minions.


As I said earlier, I am nonpartisan. However, GamerGirl, you are mischaracterizing the interview with the reporter's McCain interview to such a grave extent, I cannot help but to think that you are purposefully doing it, or you are lying to us and have not seen it yourself.

Here are the questions she asked McCain:


*There are reports now on in-fighting between her [Sarah Palin's] staff and your staff and that she's now stepping away from your campaign's talking points this close to the election. Is that indicative that she believes your ticket is not going to win, that she's positioning herself for the future?

Now there's no question that Sen. Obama has put together a well-coordinated campaign team here in Florida and across the country, yet your campaign still seems to be trying to get itself organized. The presidency is the top executive job in the land. How can you convince the American public that you are ready to lead when the thing you're in charge of, your campaign, appears to be lacking the same fine-tuned coordination as Sen. Obama's?

You've made Joe the Plumber the centerpiece of your campaign in the past week, yet independent analysis shows that he would do better under Obama's tax plan. How do you respond to that?

Sen. Obama wants to grow personal wealth from the bottom up. But your plan has tax cuts for the wealthy. Do the wealthy really need tax cuts?

Just today, [Congressman] Barney Frank has proposed a 25 percent reduction in defense spending. What do you think about that?

Let's get back to that radio interview that Sen. Obama did several years ago in Chicago when he debated not whether or not it was right to spread the wealth but what was the best way to achieve that: legislatively or through the judicial system. What does this tell you about how long he has been thinking about this?
SOURCE

While there were two softball questions, it was hardly the fawning interview you purposefully mischaracterize it as. Four of the six questions were very tough questions, going so far as to question his ability to win and lead the nation.

I guess that by the same token Keith Olberman and Chris Matthews should put a little (D) next to their names also?

I agree.

Especially Olberman. My point is that she is still claiming to be a non-partisan and objective reporter. She is not. Very obviously.

You need to check your facts. Or read the other posts in this thread.

This did not happen on a local FOX affiliate. WFTV is an ABC affiliate.


WFTV channel 9 is a television station based in Orlando, Florida, affiliated with ABC.


I find it rather funny you did not know WFTV is an ABC affiliate, since you went to their website to pull the reporter's bio.

Does Keith work for Obama? Does he claim to be non partisan? Every one knows he's liberal. Well, mostly liberal. He did have Ron Paul on a lot during the Primaries. But people know who Keith is. This woman claims to be unbias but her husband works for McCain and any one who sees both interviews would give her the Brown Nose Award for the McCain interview.

Spreading the wealth is bad how? Why the hell does a man need 100,000,000,000 dollars sitting in a Swiss bank account, paying no taxes, while getting even MORE money from the Republicans. Like Wall Street. How many MANSIONS and Million Dollar Cars do they own? Yet they get hundreds of billions of MY tax payer dollars, that they never paid, because of said Swiss Bank Account. I'd rather that 700,000,000,000 be spread to the little man then Billionaires who, if forced, could probably more than that out of bank accounts and from selling a couple dozen Mansions and Cars. But nope, we get shafted, they get billions from their friends. Like the lobbyists running McCain's campaign.


Finally, an attempt at an answer. Spreading the wealth is the core of Socialism and Marxism. Your first sentence sums it up. If spreading the wealth around is not bad, then why don't distribute most of your paycheck amongst the readers in this forum.

The fact that you do not know that this is bad and that it is a a core socialist principle, is evidence of how our country came to be in this situation in the first place. Unwary, uninformed, gullible and vulnerable people have been duped by Democrats who've been trying to wrest our freedoms from us for over a century. And they have succeeded in tricking enough people such that we are where we are today. So go vote for your Obama. Nobody is gonna change your mind no matter how much we try.

All we can do is point out that your candidate is gonna take more of your money, and then use that money for their own political gain by SPREADING that wealth around to those who will help them in their mission of depriving us of further freedoms.

But finally, at least you asked the question. How is spreading the wealth bad? I will suggest you read "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand for starters. That will lay it out for you about as well as anything.

I don't give a damn about her husband.



Hmmm So if the wife of Karl Rove was to give Biden an interview you think that it wouldnt be biased?

Cmon dude your smarter than that I know you are. The fact is these questions werent out of the ordinary and should of been answered with ease and without crying. Still doesnt change the fact the lady is OBVIOUSLY biased and the reason being she is inside via her husband.

I already myself have been spreading my paycheck around. Its just been going to the top comprende? So now its the middle classes turn to get some relief via some tax breaks. When the government wants to end it FOR ALL the people then Ill be glad to end my ranting. But as long as the top 1% continues to pay around 15% in taxes while I pay 33% then something is not right. So spread baby spread.

Oh I hope you enjoyed giving the 700+ billion in bailout dollars to the banks. That wasnt spreading wealth was it?

If I made over a billion a month I'd have no problem paying a few million more in taxes. But instead I pay more taxes to have it go to Billionaires. Thankfully Obama will reverse that.

Most people learn certain principles of logic in school.

For example, logical syllogisms are a method of reasoning from the general to the particular. A correct syllogism would be:

All mammals are warm-blooded
Whales are mammals
Therefore, whales are warm-blooded

A faulty syllogism--one that is illogical--might be:

All cows eat grass
Tom Jones eats grass
Therefore, Tom Jones is a cow

Another faulty syllogism you find all the time on ATS is:

All communists read Karl Marx
Barack Obama has read Karl Marx
Therefore, Barack Obama is a communist

Some truly logical conclusions would benefit this thread a lot.

Then I guess Im Marxist to because I am studying him and reading him as you say. Im actually more of Austrian or Chicago school of thoughts where the government gives breaks to NO one. If they are going to bailout one class then the other needs the same courtesy period. Just because you educate yourself outside the box does not make you them.

So you're implying that spouses are always joined at the hip when it comes to politics?

Ever hear of Mary Matalin and James Carville?

Yes, you are right. I am smarter than that.
