A thorough deprogramming? Ahem, to clarify:
I never supported, nor claimed to support, FOX news. I do feel they do a better job of telling the news, but the wonder of having sattelite television
is the ability to program the thing to flip between channels. Watching the various news channels does in fact reveal bias on both sides. i was merely
pointing out how quickly left wingers, and centrists will shout about FOXnews, Limbaugh, and his various mimicry, yet try and defend their own
networks as unbiased and fair. It's hypocrisy, pure and simple.
I won't go into a diatribe on the evils (real or imagined by so many sheeple) about Iraq. We've run the subject into the ground, who are you (or I)
going to convince at this point? NOONE.
Personally, although I enjoy the debate, I wish the powers that be would close all of the political threads. Every one of them descend into the same
mantras. The whacky conspiracies, the lies of the candidates, the debacle (supposedly) in Iraq, an economy that would be called great under a Democrat
being railed as reminiscent of Hoover under a Republican presidency, blah blah blah blah,,,,,
Nothing but talking points, kookiness, and relentless hurt egos and feelings.
Let's get back to the purpose of ATS: not political grandstanding (believe it or not) but denying ignorance. Obviously none of us on either side (if
you believe the various threads) are willing to deny political ignorance ( You say people like me are uneducated and I say people like you are too
quick to believe any kooky theory simply on the basis of getting a faith based leader out of office), so can we move on? Let's talk aliens, ghosts,
astronomy, oobe's , etc.
