You apparently are "new" to my threads and my thinking. That's okay - I know I'm not the center of the universe. NOTHING about Beck, Lmbaugh, or Jones is soft-spoken. NO ONE that I know (and yes, I know some of the Fox News, Beck, and Limbaugh followers. Some are in my family, and some are friends of people I know) - and they are certainly NOT soft-spoken! They make Jon and Stephen sound like meek, shy kids!
The Beck followers are hateful, LOUD, all too willing to attack, don't know what they're talking about when they accuse Progressives of being Commies. They are really hard to talk to, let alone listen to, and they REFUSE to listen.
You and your family are absolute strangers to me, and I am an absolute stranger to you. If you are one of the conservatives embarrassed by Beck & Co, and wanting to re-invent and re-brand the GOP, good for you. You're not making much of a dent, however, as far as MSM goes.
I make it my business to study ALL sides - knowing full well they are propaganda - I look at everything from HuffPost to AlJazeera, from Fox News to MSNBC, as well as overseas news outlets so I can see how America is discussed around the globe. THEN I make my determinations after weighing and balancing them against one another.
Beck should be championed for bringing the discussion on a possible terrorist to the forefront, yet he is chided and excused, with the complete absence of a discussion. You are doing your business a disservice because you are the exact opposite of what you claim to be- open minded. What is so wrong with having the discussion?
The right gets demonized.
The Progressive is a monthly left-wing magazine of investigative reporting, political commentary, cultural coverage, activism, interviews, poetry, and humor.
It steadfastly stands against:
the concentration of power in corporate hands,
and the disenfranchisement of the citizenry.
social and economic justice,
a preserved environment,
and a reinvigorated democracy.
Its bedrock values are nonviolence and freedom of speech.
In my first response, I said that your politics and bias would be shaped by your social beliefs, that goes for both of us. I am very familiar with progressive ideology, but it is no less slanted than conservative or theological ideologies- they are all agenda driven and corruptible. My apologies if I have insulted you in any way, and I will bow out gracefully because I fear that you are more eloquently spoken than myself.

I'm awaiting claims of predictions of his that have come true. So we can compare and contrast I'd say a chart is in order.
