Well, I have said all along: There is no such thing as a "liberal" media. It is made up to scare Republican supporters into thinking and voting for Republicans. Anyone against the Republicans are traitors and terrorists and the precious few anti-Republican stories are simply parroted ad nauseum until a majority of people are running around screaming about how the media is "controlled" by "liberals." If that is not a lie, folks, I don't know what is!

It is to allow people who want to control a message to classify ANYTHING that comes from the free media, that does not support their opinion, as being "liberal propaganda". The thing I have never understood is that media is as Republican and "Big Business" as any industry out there. The leaders and CEO's of it are just as Republican or Big Business as anyone, so how could it be specifically be so completely "liberal"? The big difference is that the free media likes to investigate claims made by others and also to look deeper into stories than just 30 second sound bites. So anyone who is trying to control a message must have a way to defeat any information that contradicts the controlled message.

Perhaps you should visit a truly totalitarian country, or talk to someone who has lived in one before you use such words.
You demonstrate that you haven't the wildest idea what totalitarianism is.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Those who compare the Democratic party (or the Republican party for that matter) to totalitarianism do an immense disservice to those who have actually suffered under brutal totalitarian regimes.
Quoting D L X (Reply 8): It's the same thing as socialism, isn't it?
Exactly, which is the same thing as fascism, communism, and single-motherhood.

Quoting Mrocktor (Reply 1): "So called" is appropriate. Using the word "liberal" to describe the Democrats' collectivist, statist, totalitarian politics is a travesty.
If you really want to see a government like that, go to Iran. If you REALLY believe that crap you just typed, you really don't have a clue. Unbelievable.
Quoting Avent (Reply 6): Seriously, do you think these are unfair issues to raise?
If it critisizes a Republican or a conservative, fairly or not, it us unfair to the likes of NIK, because he doesn't have the capacity to critisize them himself. Whatever they tell him to believe, he believes.

Quoting DocLightning (Reply 15): Iran doesn't? I mean, they aren't Communists, per se, but what's the major difference? Stupidity justified by religion vs. stupidity without justification at all? Don't know which is worse.
by definition Iran isn't a totalitarian regime, I'd put Saudi Arabia in the mix before Iran.
