lol Maybe so, maybe not. I'm inclined to think if they've gone this far and this long without it then they probably won't go there. You certainly shouldn't rule out that someone(s) may go over the top, even if the vast majority are protestors committed to keeping it peaceful. Folks have been forecasting from a negative perspective from the beginning, and so far I think they've been wrong. If the peace did pop, I'd consider it highly and even more probable that the agent provocateurs have been loosed.

It's a real shocker that no riots or looting has broken out yet.
I give it until next week.

Everyone is different, we can't just paint a protest in the light of one issue or ideology.
Actually I do.....it's stupid. The corporate media intentionally pushed disinformation/propaganda on one topic, so how does you doing just that, except on another topic, solve anything? By making one thing look bad using the same methods that the media does in order to avenge the media making another thing look bad, aren't you defeating your own purpose in trying to get a "fair and balanced" media?
just holdiing ows to the same standards that were set for the tpm
got a problem with that?
The magazine's current editor is Rich Lowry. Many of the magazine's commentators are affiliated with think-tanks such as the Heritage Foundation and American Enterprise Institute. Prominent guest authors have included Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Sarah Palin in the online and paper edition.
Lowry gained some publicity and was selected as former MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann's Worst Person in the World for writing: "A very wise TV executive once told me that the key to TV is projecting through the screen. It's one of the keys to the success of, say, a Bill O'Reilly, who comes through the screen and grabs you by the throat. Palin too projects through the screen like crazy. I'm sure I'm not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, 'Hey, I think she just winked at me.' And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America. This is a quality that can't be learned; it's either something you have or you don't, and man, she's got it.".

American Enterprise Institute
AEI is the most prominent think tank associated with American neoconservatism, in both the domestic and international policy arenas. Irving Kristol, widely considered a father of neoconservatism, was a senior fellow at AEI (arriving from the Congress for Cultural Freedom following the widespread revelation of the group's CIA funding) and many prominent neoconservatives—including Jeane Kirkpatrick, Ben Wattenberg, and Joshua Muravchik—spent the bulk of their careers at AEI
