Liberal Media My Ass

This is a clip showing how Fox News used some creative editting to try to smear some Democrat. Obviously they didn't want to waste time on fluff pieces like the economy, the war, or Bush trying to slow down medical research.

I really need to find the Nazi fanfare from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Wow! Fox is doing to liberals what ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN have been doing to conservatives for 25 years! I'm going to have to watch Fox more often! You all do realize the fetal stem cell issue is all just BS on both sides? They cause cancers to develop in research, and it is still perfectly legal to research with them (look it up if you don't believe me). This is just a ban on federal FUNDING. All the most promising work has been done with cord blood, and will likely continue to be.

I did not know about the possible cancer problems with fetal cells. It makes sense. I mean cells can start to misfire their process at anytime.

As to media lets remember that CNN was trying to hand in glove with the Saddam Regime. To the point they tricked a person into returning so that he could be killed.

ABC tried to do a piece on the food handling at Food Lion in the South East. They edited footage that showed that the chain did follow the rules to instead show place as trying to deliberatly put out bad food.

CBS (See BS) tried to push through documents that were proven to be just made up lies about Bush. Why to give us a fair and Balanced view or to permote their canidate John "I'd do it Differently" Kerry. Note that Dan Rather lost his job over this mess.

NBC tried to show how unsafe a pick up was back in the 90's. First by having it struck by another truck. Then after not getting the type of effects they wanted rigged the next truck to explode in a hollywood style effects shot.

So excuse me if Fox is a right leaning. But with all the others going for the progressive POV and dropping the ball about being fair and balnced it's a bit hard to say that libs are not getting their message out.

It might be that folks have had enough of the BS. Go fig.

Gordon, most of your examples aren't of left leaning journalism, just what they called in the old days "yellow" journalism.

The point is that I don't think folks can wave the Liberal Media flag anymore. And just because someone did something wrong in the past doesn't mean it's right when someone else does it wrong now.

Damn it... I need some Libertarian Media. Maybe... not sure if I agree with them 100% either. Maybe I'll just start the OzN. It'll have to be on cable.
