Free speech is good but unfortunately big money/corporations control politicians(and government),, courts(via politicians, govern through unelected judges),bringing us to media which can spin reality any way they want. You can talk(free speech) all you want but if no one hears or believes you does it really mean anything.
The problem with that argument is that it assumes all media outlets are controlled by "big money/corporations." That just isn't the case.

But, even if it were, I do not see how advocating restrictions on their First Amendment rights would solve anything. It would only serve to create a legal precedence for prior censorship that we don't want.

You know what makes total sense to me? For the members of a forum that "deny ignorance" to defend a news organization that fought for the right to lie. Why does this make sense? Because the world is full of sh*t and nobody really cares about truth. They just want their little bubble.Truth, lies, who cares. Thats why the FOX News side is also the religious side. They want their lies.

I am not an expert on media and broadcasting, but I feel the only way to shut down an outlet is for the outlet to use profanity all the time, play porn during the daytime, show people killing each other, etc. You don't shut down a station for having a bias.

I really don't like conservatives and liberals. Maybe i should send them to siberia. Or be a hitler and...


Fox news isn't that terrible. They sell, therefore they are doing something right. Other people are jealous.

I wonder what gary johnson and ron paul would have to say about the matter!

Sadly, I agree with you, in which case as country we're going to deserve what's coming to us.

Actually, the graph shows them as even.

ATS might as well be called the Right Wing Troll HQ.

What? I thought it was common knowledge that Fox News is more like a republican entertainment network than a real news network...
I really don't care if you watch Fox News for entertainment, as long as you don't actually believe the sht they say there, if you do, then sorry but you are a moron.

I just saw a story that showed MSNBC was more partisan than Fox. Allegedly by a ratio of 71 to 3 in regards to positive and negative news stories concerning the republican and democratic parties.

I neither care about nor watch cable news, I'm just providing some info.

I'm on my phone so I can't provide any links. But if you look through Google News, you should have no trouble finding it.

I think it was published by the Baltimore Sun. I don't know that papers political leanings.

In other words, it never happened.

Amazing how some will claim this, claim that and offer NOTHING to back it up.

Ya right. We'll need links for that one. It was probably done by the heritage foundation or some other wacko right wing think tank.
right wing think tank = code for " think of ways to convince poor people to give rich people more money and power"

Trying to downplay the successful response to this just makes the right-wing look childish and silly. Just like the non-issue in Benghazi,

1 - Benghazi most definately IS an issue. To say it's a non-issue is insane.
2 - I didn't downplay the supposedly successful response by the government. When Christie gave Obama a pat on the back I said 'good for him', gave the thumbs up, and thought that FEMA and the government were actually doing a good job. Now I know better ...

I'm voting for Johnson and was an ardent supporter of Ron Paul previously.

Same here. I voted for Johnson a few weeks ago (absentee)

...but that doesn't mean I deny the reality that Obama is doing a DAMN good job on this thing. And you shouldn't either.

I should do exactly what I'm doing .. thank you very much.


I took Chris Christies word for it at the beginning and thought ... like most everyone else .. that everything was moving well and doing fine. However, here we are a week later and people are still without food or water or clothing or a shelter of some sort. OF COURSE i didn't think the place would be cleaned up .. but comeone ... basic food and water is missing?? That's not the kind of response I pictures when Gov Christie said it was 'all good'. I applauded and gave a thumbs up. It seems that I was a little too quick with doing so ....

Actually a lot, or some, of the right wingers are abandoning the republican party because they are sick and tired of the military-industrial complex bankrupting america and killing her children.

I wonder when left wingers will get the message and head on over to the socialist or at least green party.

America needs three or four parties more or less competing on fair grounds. If you can't see this(as most democrats cannot) then I feel there is no hope for the hippy movement of the 60s and 70s. Obama gave 4 times more bailouts to big business than bush did and the federal reserve can't be bothered to give any explanations either. Where are the jobs? Oh yeah, ASIA! It is called outsourcing! What about the illegal mexicans crossing at will? It seems they are encouraged to do so. What about the war effort in the middle east? Practically the same.

Like hell I am EVER going to vote for a democrat or republican. Never!

Why do you say this? What is the issue other than US citizens killed ? and who told you it was an issue beyond the obvious?

I've never seen such blatant, Aryan-style propaganda. Someone do some blood tests.

Fox has a cloning factory somewhere?

Anyway, I trust you all know the movie Network:



Best line in this speech: "We're in the boredom killing business". And that's all TV is. This whole discussion about which network is worse and how much of a disgrace it is that any of them should dare lie to us becomes pretty amusing once you really let it sink in that it's all just truth-free entertainment.
