What the bloody hell is a liberal?

Why is American liberalism almost the antithesis of liberalism past?

The definition of a liberal: Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.

The Republican definition of liberal: Gay, French, America-hating, terrorists.

UK political definition of Liberal: can make as many promises as they like because no bugger will ever vote them into power.

I don't agree with that - I like many of their policies and have voted for them - but the chances of my seeing a UK Lib Dem government during this lifetime are slim.

haha....that's how it is in Southern US....life could be so bad for them under the Bush administration and all of Bush's economic policies could be hurting them....but they will vote Republican no matter what because of the right-wing propaganda machine that is the media.

Please enlighten us upon how "the media" is a right-wing propaganda machine, I for one would really like to know.

Do you belief that government is there to help the people?

Isn't it wonderful how governments are never any good at anything, other than conspiracy theories?

Both sides have their propaganda machines. Taking all media forms and not restricting them to "news" programs (excluding the press for now):

CNN left-wing
MSNBC Identity crisis
Fox Right Wing
Talk Radio Mostly right wing--Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage
with some weak left wing like Air America
CBS Left wing
ABC, NBC Lean left
Hollywood Left
Country Music Right
Rock Music Left, but for the most part can't be bothered.
Television
Evangelism shows: RIGHT

BUT BACK ON TOPIC, WHY ARE LIBERALS EMBARASSED TO BE CALLED LIBERALS?

Okay this is why the media is a right-wing propaganda machine.

As we know, every media corporation in America is owned by a massive corporation. The main ones are Viacom, Time Warner, Disney, GE, and News Corp. These five corporations control 95% of what we know as the "media". This includes radio, print, and television sources. So everything you hear on these sources is (by extension) put out by these corporations. So say there is a new bill in Congress which would make it cheaper and easier to outsource jobs, GE (which is known for being one of the biggest companies to outsource jobs) isn't gonna show an investigative report on this bill during NBC news. This incident happened when a telecommunications bill was being passed by Michael Powell and the FCC. It gave these large corporations even more power to do own more media outlets. Total, in the five companies I mentioned, there was less than half an hour of news coverage on this bill in all five companies combined. It would have been bad for the corporations to let the public know about the bill so they did not give out much information on it through their news companies. I'm not suggesting that this is some large conspiracy. It's good business. If some information hurts your company, you don't let people know about it. But the fact is, the Republicans favor these large corporations when doing their work in Washington and these large corporations affect the media as we know it.
