No, not really. Liberals can put on good TV shows. I love many programs on Public TV, and I love the show Judging Amy.

it was my experience at Discovery Times that demonstrated to me just how conservative the media has become -- these people weren't all ultra libera, but they were cosmopolitan and secular, and yet they felt the need to literally bend over backwards in order not to in any way, shape, or form give even a patina of liberalism lest they somehow be called "liberal."

And it was my friend's 5 year experience at an NBC news affiliate (in Dallas, no less) that showed him just the opposite; that the news media was liberally slanted, as evidenced by stories he was told to pursue and not to pursue.

Maybe you should have watched it - if you'd have you'd know exactly how evil this man is, the horrible things he subjected his own people to. If you had seen this, you'd have a hard time boo-hooing that the man was ousted from power.

agree with this evaluation of Saddam but that doesnt justify that war, according to me.

Liberating people from a madman like Sadsdam certainly justifies it for me. I don't give a rat's behind if our intelligence agencies, as well as that of Israel, Britain and Russia, were all wrong when they reported that Saddam had WMD. I don't think they were wrong, but even if they were, it wouldn't matter to me.

If it's a-ok for wars to be started based on bad intelligence, perhaps intelligence should just be done away with then.
Maybe even reasoning. Perhaps the government should just be able to get on with whatever it is without pesky questions being asked. If people don't care, then it shouldn't matter.

Then there was a lawsuit in the 1990s after FOX bought New World Communications and turned all of their stations into "owned-and-operated" stations where FOX News first fired two news producers at a Florida affiliate for investigating a major corporation (and sponsor), and when they threatened to sue, then tried to force them to create fake news that was friendly to the corporation. When they refused to create fake news, they were fired again. When they tried to sue FOX News under whistleblower protections, they first won the suit, then lost in appeal, because "falsifying news is not illegal."

So don't start preaching about media bias.

Melon, I wasn't the one who started "preaching about media bias". Read the thread from the beginning.

But now that we are on the subject, let's talk about Dan Rather....
