But what do I know. I'm just a dumb liberal by your standards. I didn't think it was possible for you to become anymore delusional.
It took a blogger from Florida to break the story all the while NBC news sat on it for months.
For what its worth I think John Kerry would be a disaster as SECDEF...
The problem, IMO, is the people.
Very few people want fact based news. Instead, the vast majority of folks want to be told news that reaffirms their political beliefs.
So instead of the raw truth like we used to get in the 40's and 50's, we get agenda driven noise and the consumer (us) has to sift through the BS to try and find the truth. And even then, it's still vague sometimes.
You'll never remove bias from news. In his book "Bias", Bernard Goldberg illustrated perfectly the effect on bias in everything we do and its effect on today's media. Instead of recognizing the bias, it's denied for some odd reason. He argues nobody at the NY Times or at CNN (or at FNC for that matter) says "hey, how can we be biased against the right today". Instead, what happens is a subconscious reaction every human has based on their own beliefs. Since the overwhelming majority of folks who enter the journalism profesions lean left, it will naturally come out in their reporting (or lack of reporting, as we are seeing with Libya). There's nothing wrong with that, Goldberg argue. Where the media fails is their failure to admit it.
Pride is doing more to hurt the news business far more than the internet has.
He knows officers and procedures but not those guys so he was taking the other
side's position. I was just responding to his posts as Spam always says. He gave an opposite view so I just
said Libby. People call my connie. That's what we are - libbies and connies. I'm a connie and I'm not the one who started
saying that. Geesh.
I thanked him many times for his service to our country which was a lot longer than
anyone else on here that I know of unless PoPs comes back. He always hit me for
not going over and called me names that no one ever said a word about but at least I showed up which all the other vets on here acknowledged and I just described how I finally made the combat zone 30 years later as a civilian because I had an
expertise nobody else had and the Army needed it there. I didn't have to go and was completely
un-armed and have a citation from the Prez. Nobody in my family knew where I was. Told my mom I was going to the beach
for a week. She almost died when she saw the presidential citation.
No thats not what we are, libbies and connies. I am not either. Plus I don't like to be called demonized terms. You may like that type of discussion where derogatory terms are throw around casually, where as I like a higher standard of conversation.
Do as you wish Trap...but when responding to my posts, if you can't converse with me at my standard, then add me to your ignore list.
