I apologize then. It sure sounded like you were being serious. I bet you made more than one person spit coffee on their monitor after reading your post.



Guess I need to take you off the FOE list!

It's funny, all the media outlets such as newspapers, TV stations and the like, all the ones that are calling these protests "Right Wing" and "Extremist" and etc. are the ones that are failing miserably in ad revenue and ratings.

This isn't a Right - Left thing, this is an out of control government thing. People are waking up to the fact that the government has created all these problems with bad legislation, and to "fix" the problem they are trying to legislate more bad policies.

This partisan hack of a "journalist" is a prime example of what is happening. What I mean by that is that partisan hacks, on both sides, fail to have objective views and it is NEVER their fault for anything bad that happens, all they do is point fingers.

People are waking up to the truth of the matter, this has been a long time coming and I wouldn't say the government is scared, but concern is growing amongst them though, if the DHS report that was released as any indication of that.

Funny thing is its all going to back fire on them hardcore. It already is, this administration just lumped the left in with "right wing extremist". I was watching Colbert or Stewart, can't remember which one, but usually when something about Obama comes on the crowd is cheering and applauding loudly, not so this time the reaction was very weak.

The whole point that I'm trying to make is that the Media is losing ground and it is showing, the more the Media acts like a mouth piece for their political view the more they stoke the flames. Just a month ago this country was looking like a pre-revolutionary France, but now it is starting to look like pre-revolutionary America.

Obama made his stimulus plan evident BEFORE ELECTIONS. He was voted in as president, so stop being a sore loser and accept that fact that he is issuing a stimulus plan.... the fact that you are telling us to leave if we want things to change just shows how anti-american you really are. If you want things to never change and stay constant move to North Korea. It's been 2 months people, give the man a year as president and then you can judge.

I absolutely can't believe someone thinks like you. You are the ignorant one by calling these people names.



I believe the post right before this one you were calling the commentator from CNN a "bull dyke." Typical Republican hypocrit.

These tea parties have been going on for the past two years with NO ONE covering them. The Ron Paul supported used tea parties last year all over the country to try to make a dramatic point...but there was no coverage. FOX has hijacked it by sending anchors to events and promoting it. They made fun of it this time last year...called us libertarian crazies...now they are taking it over and ramming it into the ground. This is all manipulation. I did not go to any and will never go because of my deep distrust for how all of this is being manipulated. All of you who went after you knew FOX news and Glenn Beck were getting involved are all pawns in this big chess game.

you have 0 evidence that fox made fun of it last year. absolutely none. and you obviously dont watch or listen to glenn beck because he was always a fan of the tea parties and likes ron paul. so get out of this topic please.

whats wrong with fox news? who was actually trying to cover the tea parties and what they represented rather than CNN who wanted to pretend everyone is a nutcase.

This not only exposed CNN for what it truly is- it represents a separation from the people to the media head on, rather than beating around a bush.

Fox News by no means is a savior but compared to CNN its gold to tinfoil.

Everyone hates fox news but when are asked for a valid news source they are speechless. Pure hypocrites...

OK, i went and cried in the bathroom, i feel a lot better. I'm trying to stay on topic, but when i see somebody use a term like that to describe somebody, and then in the next breath demean somebody else for using a far less offensive name i get a little agitated.

It's kind of like when Fox news calls protesters under the Bush administration Anti Americans and then praises protesters under the Obama administration as Freedom Fighters...

Many responding so harshly to Obama have been students of american history and politics for years. Thus we dont need to give Obama a year. We can tell whats going on right now. Much of which is really nothing new in the main. Obama is being driven to make up ground for the hard core liberals that have been out of power for several years now.

Most of Obamas supporters are young, hard core socialists or people that want to see him succeed for personal reason like race for example. Yet Obama is just the most resent version of an old pot of cooking.

The CNN reporter was confronted after her interview. There were cameras rolling. However, this bit of it didn't make CNN for some odd reason.

Video at the link below.

CNN Reporter Confronted After Interview - Video

The lady has some pretty good points, and ones you didn't see mentioned in the CNN bit at all.

I'm wondering how long it will be till some other news org picks up the CNN vs FOX battle as news? Heh - "Tonight on ABCNews - CNN vs Fox the latest updates from the ongoing media war!!"

All I can say is that I always kind of thought of CNN as being in the middle.. not as extremely liberal as msnbc and not as conservative as fox. However, after I watched that reporter react like a lunatic it really lowered my opinion of them. Hopefully, this is not how the management at CNN feels and they will make the right decision and fire her. Her actions were out of control regardless of what side of political spectrum you are on. I have never seen a reporter act like that before.

Honestly, I kind of have always felt the same about CNN but felt it more depending on who was reporting. For example, I've always thought Lou Dobbs leans more right despite calling himself an independant. The lady in the video obviously leans left. With CNN to me its always been more who was reporting as to what slant I'd hear about the news.

Outstanding, she had that biased Biatch back tracking. The MSM has no idea about the anger swelling in this country as a few power players bankrupt our nation.

Im not trying to make this a topic solely about the media, but that seems to be what it's already become, so here: does anyone listen to NPR? It seems to me that, regardless of what political party is in power, they are always reporting real news, not partisan crap like so many of the tv news channels and programs do. NPR has been talking about the Tea Parties for a while now, and while not actually promoting them, they do give times and locations for a lot of the ones in the major cities. I for one, didn't even know that one was going on in Louisville yesterday until I heard about it on NPR.

Again, not trying to make this about the media, but it seems there are some people out there who still care about the NEWS, and not who's on the right, and who's on the left.

Excellent point. I have never really thought about it that way. It does depend on who is reporting, but they also seem to do a better job of balancing out viewpoints then fox or msnbc IMO. I must admit I love Lou Dobbs even when I dont agree with him sometimes. He is so hardcore. I watched him the other night and he ripped Barney Frank a new one. I almost busted a gut laughing. It was almost disrespectful, but it was a conversation I would have loved to have with any Congress person that voted for this pile a crap they are throwing at us.

Alot of stars for the same statements in this thread - which I don't mind at all!

I would really like to know wtf is going on with Fox lately. Really, it's bothering the hell out of me. I think maybe they are speaking up about the truth so people will say "FOX news said it? It can't be true!"

But who knows... really...

No here's what is anti-American;

A government that is trying to push a socialist agenda, in a country that was founded to be a republic and nothing else.

A government that excessively taxes the citizens and refuses to represent them as they should.

A government that has become so full of themselves that they have forgotten that they work for the people.

A government that attempts to take away the constitutional rights of the citizens.

A government that labels law abiding citizens as potential terrorist threats because they believe in their constitution, their 2nd amendment rights, their immigration laws, etc.

A government that forces the citizens to pay for the bailout of bussinesses in a free market society.

Worst of all a government that would label the brave men and women of it's own military as possible terrorist threats to the country that they risked their lives to defend.

These are some of the reasons that people are having tea parties and sending tea bags. That is why so many are trying to peacefully protest now.

If the government officials are so unhappy with this country and so hellbent on changing it, then maybe they should all resign their positions and go work for a government of a country that is more to their liking.



Edited to add; Give him a year, the country will be gone in a year, we're already being run into the ground, and no i'm not placing all the blame on Obama, this country's been in trouble for many years now.

It's actually been said that the head of Fox News got kicked out of the Bilderberg Group, I cant confirm it but many this is why they have suddenly turned their heads against the government.


Where did you hear this? Can you provide a source to it?

The more information about which players are on what team we can get, the better informed we will be when the time comes.

Para.

Did you notice that while she was on the air, that she tried to make it look like she was signing off because she was affraid that things could get out of control?

Yet, once she knew that she was not on the air, she felt comfortable enough to stay and debate with others in the crowd? Ridiculous isn't it?

Somthing else for you all. CNN has its headquarters here in Atlanta. The Tea Party was held less than a mile from the CNN building, yet there were no CNN reporters at the Atlanta Tea Party and they never mentioned it in their reporting. Hmmmm.

Now, I am sure that someone is going to say that CNN didn't show up because Fox was there. OK, I was there 2 hours before the official start time, there were no Fox celebs on the podium. There were no angry throngs, there were normal folks who wanted to send a message. It would have been very easy for CNN to send a couple of cameras down the street. Yet, they didn't do it.

They also did not cover the Tea Party that was held in February at the same location. Nope! CNN doesn't care to cover the news, they are much more concerned with covering the Democrats butts.
