What do YOU think of the media?

Below is a quote that sums up what I think about them quite clearly.

"Why is the media so kind to the Clintons? Because, at root, they all crawled out from under the same rock: They are 1960s leftists who are anti-American values, pro-drugs, pro-permissiveness, anti-military, anti-marriage, anti-tradition and part of a New Left that saw Moscow, Havana and Peking as romantic hotspots on the road to an egalitarian Utopia." --John LeBoutillier

Today's Quote: "We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism." --Nikita Khrushchev

I believe the cold war is over.

The media is a little like lawyers, almost everyone hates them until they need 'em.

DG Pilot:

No further comment is necessary. You summed it up perfectly.

Actually, I wanted to start this topic about the media, but once again someone decided to do it before me. My opinion of the media is totally different. DG_Pilot - you can stick those anti-american values you know where. If you think the media is liberal - think again. The media is owned by 6 major corporations - and only as liberal as those conservative corporations want it to be. I think CBS is owned by Philip Morris - now pay attention and see how many anti-smoking ads and criticism of Philip Morris they have. NONE. NADA, ZIP, NI HUYA however you want to put it.

Besides, why don't you explain the beauty of the values like marriage, military, and tradition?

AN-225:

CBS is now owned by Viacom (who also, incidentally, owns Paramount Pictures). Its previous owner was Lawrence Tisch whom I think had some sort connection to Philip Morris, but I'm not sure, and I'm too burned out from writing papers at the end of the semester to dig...

¿Quién cuidan lo que usted piensa, DG_pilot?

I personally can't stand the media, as they twist everything in one way or another - just look at aviation incidents. HOWEVER, saying they are ALL either left- or right-wing is sweepingly generalizing, and it implies EXTREME paranoia. (But who needs implications when we know it's true?)

My point is that I have an opinion - and you don't care about it. Likewize, you have an opinion and I doubt that many people care about it...

The comment about '1960s Leftists' made me chuckle. Did you ever read the Atlanta Journal-Constitution? Guess not. Either way, you're paranoid and so closed-minded as if to be an exemplary tale of how not to live...

Good luck when you go to college and actually meet people with differing views to your own.

LMAO!!!

Yeah- and thats why 60 Minutes featured that whole story about 'deceiving' tabacco companies that led to the movie, "The Insider". Yup thats it.

WRONG.

The big three (and all the cable jokes like CNN) are all obviously left-leaning.

>and it implies EXTREME paranoia

I don't see it. All you have to do is watch and the network's political views are quite obvious. And it happens that the hard-left outnumbers centrist and Right networks by a large number.

Lets take a look at some of the left-run media outlets:
ABC
CBS
NBC (PMSNBC, et al)
CNN et al
New York Times
Washington Post
Associated Press
AOL/Time Warner
etc, etc, etc

Bias by commission, bias by omission, bias by story selection, bias by placement, bias by the selection of sources, bias by spin, bias by labeling... the list goes on.

The reason I am concerned about the vast media bias is because it brainwashes & misleads the unwitting.

Great quotes to pick, Dustin... gotta love those.

I never have understood how believing in a platform is "close-minded"--as so many of the Sociocrats like to put it. Yeah, I think your platform sucks, and just because YOU don't like that, it does not make ME "close-minded." You think mine sucks--so, by your own standards (oh no, not the changing standards thing again) you would have to be "close-minded" too.

1960's Leftist--remember the drug pushing, tree hugging, draft-dodging hippies? LOL..

"Either way, you're paranoid..."

Did I say anything about fear? Once again, just because I believe in a set, steady, and stable set of values, it does not make me paranoid by any means.

Good luck trying to wake up from La-La Dreamy Land and making that first step into the glorious sunlight of common sense and practicality. Until then, keep your fantasizing to a minimum.
