I still get the sense that you are in confrontation mode. That's discouraging. It means it's still a matter of attack and defend for you; if that is your preferred mode of discussion then, the choice is yours, but like kind responses should not be surprising.
Apologies then. It was my understanding that in the course of "Denying Ignorance" a few toes might get stepped on. I'm new here and will strive to abide. It was not my intent to be stern or gruff in pursuit of truth.
However, I stand by discovery that there was a glaring factual misrepresentation in the original post. The crux of the thread author's beef was a purported letter written by a reporter for WSJ. Odd in and of itself if we are going to question MSM at all. I merely pointed out that the letter which was touted was, in fact, NOT written by a current reporter for WSJ nor did it appear in that publication as one might be lead to believe.
Regardless, I hereby acquiesce as a welcomed guest in this forum and will strive to temper my zest for exposing what I consider to be mischaracterization of facts. Thanks for the gentle coddling as I get my ATS sea legs. Do you have ant Dry Cleaning that needs picked up? LOL

Well, bizarre posts sometimes yield "enticing" responses. Need I go count how many times you mentioned how new you were and that you were still learning the ropes in a variety of posts. Plus your interesting exchange with a MOD. Perhaps bitter feelings of a recently banned member are showing through here. Just Kurious and hoping that nothing sinnister is afoot considering the development of recent events
Greetings, Ms. Kohn: I am not writing to inquire a media appearance. Rather, I am writing to apologize on behalf of any spiritual, peace-loving, tolerant, open conservatives who listened to you being bashed by Hannity yesterday. I was disgusted by his treatment of you and, upon conclusion of the "interview," I changed the channel.
I've not been previously exposed to "Sally Kohn" and found myself interested in your positions, which were not in total disagreement with Hannity's. However he did not afford you so much as a second to get established! In fact, he was cutting you down in his introduction of you when he described you as "...a community organizer, whatever that means." Moreover, he continually accused you of being a liberal mouth piece for lefty talking points. Ha! Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! In addition to repeating the same stats over and over, he answered his own questions on your behalf which appeared to me to be mere speculative stereotyping.
I transitioned over to Fox news years ago because of the "mainstream" media's clear left agenda. However, I've become just as disgusted with Fox's talk programming. Hannity's demeanor has become O'Reilly-esque with a longer fuse.
Whatever happened to the investigative journalist? The guy or gal who, in good faith and genuine motivation, seeks the truth and exposes it to the rest of us Truth Seekers by wading through the seedy subcultures for late-night meetings in the park with the whistle blowers and the Deep Throats?
NO news media is without agenda today, from you to Michelle Malkin, and from Fox to BBC and Al Jazeera. News has become a movement of varying political ideologies and THAT, in my humble opinion, is a major contributor to the polarization and inevitable destruction of our communities. You're feeding the Machine when the Machine needs to be shut down and retooled.
But, I digress...just know that there are still people out here, regardless of our conditioning and beliefs, who hold love and human compassion as values far more important than who's responsible for the deficit, the scandal, the corruption, the _________ (fill in the blank).
As long as news media focus on the problems, we will always have them. It won't be until, collectively, the media allows itself to focus on SOLUTIONS that it becomes a productive contributor to our community(ies) again.
Thank you for your email. I truly appreciate it. Please do rest assured that I know Sean's schtick and I know what I'm getting into when I agree to be a guest on his show. That said, I entirely agree with you about the need for civil disagreement and debate on both sides of the political divide and I'm very touched by the thoughts you shared. With gratitude, Sally

Not really on subject, by she also wants some DD beats headphones and I keep telling her she's been manipulated by the ads has those headphones are too expensive for the quality they have and the look isn't that cool to begin with. Music is a weapon and MSM music is pointed at us.
