Proof positive that the right wants HILLARY... not to run against, but for president.
And maybe they have a point about left fascism. Where the fuck were Dennis' headlines on HuffPo and TPM and Kos? Huh? Where, the fuck, were they?

Where does O'Reilly get his statistics? I've been told that 95% of the major news media outlets are owned by 5 corporations. Corporations, by their nature, are "conservative" (as in conserving as much profit for themselves as possible). So what FACTUAL data does Fox have to show that the majority of the media is "liberal"?
Isn't there some way to put the numbers on the table once and for all? This has been a classic tug of war for years. Anybody got the answer?

What's with Juan Williams?!
And his comment toward the end about "remembering swiftboating?!" There's no remembering, Juan. It's goin' on right now.
He must be living in some kind of a little media bubble right now. Either that, or he's been given a pay hike to amp up the rhetoric.

Whoa, what an offensive bunch of nonsense. I'm no fan of Soros, but why should Murdock and his ilk be in control? Why can't things just be straight reporting and leave the editorializing to opinion writers?
FOX News is pretty criminal and O'Reilly is such a transparent liar, I pity him.

If it hadn't been for Martha Mitchell there wouldn't have been a Watergate. And what did the NeoconNixonNazis do to her for being honest?? Those GOBS (GoodOleBoys) trashed, badmouthed, and degraded the woman - and if my memory serves correctly the sick snakes even institutionalized her.
If it weren't for us "Loons" the country might be destined to listen to the holy/healthy/flawlessly clean and sinless Father Bill O'Really as he trashes his guests and divides Americans further, creating discord and confusion while depositing his million dollar paycheck with his Fascist friends' failing banking institutions.
Watch him spew his venom below, and witness his hatred against a 911 victim's son who didn't agree with O'Really's agenda, and it might be the very last time you'll watch the Fox channel.
Sign me, "Crazy as a Loon"and proud of it. Americans will be thanking us "insane, crazy" people who should "take our meds," and have refused to kiss the likes of, and "sucker down" to O'Really's azz.
We've saved the world from more potential Hitlers like O'Really who honestly believes the septic field he's smelling absolutely could NOT be his own - even though he's standing in it.
Too bad he didn't get his Moyer's "hit piece," as planned. He's out for blood, with plenty already in Iraq investments, so give the guy a gun.

Bill O'Reilly victimized?! What's with Williams anymore, he's obviously taken the money and will say whatever he's told to by the Murdoch hitmen. Wadda gutless sellout! This is disgusting. I just watched on HuffPo the attempt by O'Reilly's producer to ambush Moyers. Moyers said O'Reilly can have an hour of airtime on his show and then he will appear on O'Reilly's. And so chickenhawk Bill comes up with this character assasination. Total complete filth, lying scum, fascists themselves. Goebbels would be proud of this crap from Fox. Crikey they absolutely disgust me.

Oh, riiight.. "Conservatives" are being edged out of the public forum. Totally..pause for breath..oh give me a frickin' break!! I don't know why people even give O'Wrylie the time of day. He is rabid and a quasi-intellectual. And a pompous *ss. The corporate-owned media has been the bane of society for far too long and without any effort at "reform" they will eventually self-destruct. A time will come when people will just look the other way and say "talk to the hand" and refuse to buy their wares. I can't wait for the day..:)

RE: Comment #5
You're kidding me, right?
The first newspaper built in the U.S. was created to market its advertisers through the mail (by the first Postmaster).
The keystone of libel case law was about a Governor shutting down the newspaper his rival had created. The rival had created his newspaper to attack the Governor for not paying him money he was owed when he subbed as Governor of New York.
Where, in the illustrious history of journalism has there ever been truthiness?
The concept of straight reporting originates every year in journalism classes and dies 3 months after graduation.
The history of journalism is as rife with power politics as any of the other estates. As this site itself experienced over the past few months.

I loved it when the woman commentator said "I think there is some cognitive dissidence...". She didn't correct herself. She seems not to know that the term is actually "cognitive dissonance". This just shows how well-educated and well-informed these folks are.
And a question. What the heck is the "Radisson poll" that she refers to?
Unfortunately I regularly hear from someone who lives in Alabama, who has bought into this kind of stuff totally. He has no idea how much BS he is eating in his regular media diet.
