Looks like we got another idiot communist liberal. Again, you guys don't get it. How in hell is the RNC and conservitives like the murderus Nazis? I don't recall anyone from the party start a holocaust against jews? And by the way, it's not the conservitives lying, it's the liberals! Everynight on CNN or CBS it's bash bush, bash bush. The liberal media is overlooking the great stuff that is happening in Iraq.

-new schools
-human rights
-democracy
-freedom of religion
-freedom of speech
-torture chambers being closed

I mean come on. Give this president some credit for making the world better.

srbmod, how dare you compare the great country of the United States of America to a bunch of idiots who killed millions of people for no reason. YOU TRAITOR!

Just because I don't like Fox News I'm automatically a liberal communist traitor? Typical Fox News POV. Well I don't like CNN either, so does that make me a conservative Nazi? That's the problem in this world, you're either a liberal or a conservative, you're either for us or against us. Well excuse some of us for not wanting to be brainwashed into being liberals or conservatives. Most of my views are quite moderate, and some could be considered liberal and others conservative. I try keep an open mind on things so that I can actually see things as they are, not as someone wants me to see them. What happened, did they remove your sense of humor when you got your lobotomy (Or was it when they implanted the subdermal tracking chip?). So what's it really like being a mindless sheep who follows the herd in whatever direction they tell you to go?

How in hell is the RNC and conservitives like the murderus Nazis? I don't recall anyone from the party start a holocaust against jews?

So it's all fine and dandy for the President and his Cabinet to step all over and circumvent the Bill Of Rights and the Constitution all in the name of "Homeland Security?" IIRC, the Nazis did very similar things in Germany during the 1930s, circumventing the laws for the "Greater Good Of the Country". The Patriot Acts are a totalitarian's wet dream. Is it me, or does the Department of Homeland Security sound like a Fascist or Communist governmental ministry? I'm not one of those types that insists on beating the 9/11 drum as a way to justify things, and both the liberals and the conservatives are quite guilty of that. 9/11 happened, our nation got caught with its' pants down, and much of what they are doing in the name of "
Homeland Security" is akin to closing the barn door after the horse has run away. Ridding the world of one terrorist is not going to solve anything, as terrorism is like a weed, you think you've gotten rid of it here, it pops up over there. We're doing nothing more than creating martyrs for future terrorist groups. Thank you George W. Bush for making the world safer for us all now and for the future.


BTW, next time try using spell check so you don't come off looking like a rambling fool.

Better to close the barn door after the horse runs away....after all....maybe there are other horses?

Can you break down individually which portions of the Bill of Rights that President Bush 'stepped' all over? Are you saying specfically you have lost a right that you had prior?

You can go easy on Matt....his profile says 13-15 years old.

Matt, my friend:

First of all, let me say I don't agree with you but am glad to see you here expressing yourself.

Second, let me give some advice: As you go forward in this life, remember that the most important thing you can do is think for yourself and question authority.

What's a Conservites?

And shouldn't news channels be independant, and unbiased? Shouldn't news be reported, not opinions? Or are people too stupid to make their own opinions?

CBS and CNN or unbiased? What about CBS's plan to destroy the legacy of one of the greatest presidents we've had while he is on his deathbed?

I love how the left in the US gleefully demands public subsidization of NPR as a national priority, despite (or because of) its unmistakable liberal bent, but when a private entrepreneur launches a conservative-leaning news organization with private funds, they can't tear it down fast enough. Howard Dean has said he'd like to break up Fox, which he could legally do, and shut down Fox News Channel, but unfortunately, there's this pesky thing called the First Amendment. Somehow not watching and letting the market work is not enough.

Is there a conservative/pro-US/pro-Bush bias at Fox News? Yes, although Fox generally reports the same critical stories as CNN or MSNBC; it's more the tone of the presentation that differs from network to network. Just a few days ago, I posted a link to a Fox News story, which was promptly trashed as "Bush damage control." The problem with this view is that the story came word-for-work from the AP; the AP, Reuters, UPI, etc. do most of the writing for any media outlet.

At least Fox isn't making up its own news (anyone remember Jayson Blair and the New York Times?) or getting letters from its own correspondants telling it to stop slanting its war coverage (hello, BBC: http://media.guardian.co.uk/broadcast/story/0,7493,922206,00.html). From what a lot of liberals seem to think, especially Europeans, Bill O'Reilly is on leading his panel in sieg heils, which is absolutely ridiculous.

Every news organization has a bias, be it liberal, conservative, pro/anti establishment, populist, religious, whatever. The most important thing is to take the news source's biases into account and make up your own mind.
