What was the line, you can fool someone half of the time, but you cant fool someone all of the time?
When it comes to the media, you have to take it for what it is.
There are some things that you can rely on the MSM for...
1. Balloon Boy.
3. The new hair spray product comming out soon that guarantees it will style your hair for you without the use of a comb.
4. bi-partisan committment to one side or the other.
That said... Everything else they spew is usually BS, but if you are not grown up enough to realize when you are being lied to and when you arent,
then you shouldnt be watching the news in the first place.
Why do you come to ATS? - here, let me answer that for you.
TO GET AWAY FROM THE BS TO FIND THE OTHER SIDE.
Last time I checked, ATS was a conspiracy site. Not a news Organization.
ATS brings you links and reports from other news outlets and such,
so you can have a third opinion.
My problem with ATS however...is that everyone that posts in the political forums, stick to the side that they chose a long time ago(Rep vs Dem), no
matter if their side is wrong or not. We all know who those people are so there is no need to say it. However, there are some of us that post in these
forums that hold similar views on certain political individuals,because we have never seen anything of value come from them,I.E.
Bush,Obama,Pelosi.(this is where the one siders start with their BS directional-LvR- attitude.
So trust me, its not the members. The members are the reason why this site is so successful. Remember that. We are supposed to be here for each other,
not against each other.
