95% of the cable news crap from both sides of the spectrum is not news it's propaganda to promote on political cause or another
Apparently, you're just as stupid as Rapist Boy. Once again, if you follow the link which Miss Olga posted, you will see that the comment i made referred to the report that CNN's online news site gets almost 26 million hits per month, as opposed to Fox's online news site, which gets just over 7.5 million hits. Why are these things so difficult for conservatives to understand? Is it because they only have a one dimensional view of the world? Do you think that people only get news if they watch the television? Have you heard of newspapers, magazines, the internet?
My comment was that when people go looking for news online, they go to CNN
When people go looking for the news, they go to CNN, not Fox.
When people go looking for news, as in actually making an effort more strenuous than sitting on your fat ass on the sofa and pushing buttons on the remote, they go to the CNN news web site more often than to the Fox news web site by a factor of more than three to one.
Comparing CNN and MSNBC to Fox is a case of comparing apples to oranges, because CNN and MSNBC are to be found either on cable or on a satellite feed, but not through an affiliated television station. Many people who tune into a Fox affiliate (or ABC, NBC or CBS) do so because they want to get local news, weather and sports coverage. PBS has many respected news programs, such as "The News Hour," "Washington Week in Review" or "Tony Brown's Journal," to name but three--however PBS stations do not provide local news coverage, so they're not typical in that respect, either.
As i also pointed out later, Fox has affiliated stations which broadcast in the clear, and that people watch those stations for local news, weather and sports as well as the conservative drivel.
Quote:This earthquake is part of a continuum of self inflicted Haitian tragedies. Money and sympathy are better spent elsewhere, someplace where their is a reasonable expectation of return on investment.
The entire situation is the result of plate tectonics and nothing more. Unless of course , you request that Port au Prince be relocated to a tectonically inactive area. I think that you and Pat Robertson have a lot in common in the logic department.
I thought I'd bump this important point of DrewDad's. If Fox did extensively cover it in special reports, but didn't cover it in its political commentary shows, they did their job as a news provider. Media Matters' methodology of focusing only on top-rated shows is disingenuous.
the high body count is directly caused by the Haitians own behaviour over these last decades, not developing a functioning government and not caring about safety standards in buildings.
I believe there are some Americans that do not empathize well with foreigners' tragedy. O.K. What I do not understand is why does it seem like there are some that are ready to stand in judgement of that? As private citizens, do we not have the right to choose with who to commiserate?
Sometimes I do believe that the liberal progressive movement may subscribe to the concept of "thought policing." I wonder if standing in judgement of others' level of empathy is a vestige of the historical societal emphasis on proselytizing (religion)? In other words, subscribe to the religion you were born into; however, learn to have the "correct" values and we can all be one.
You're hilarious, dancing boy. You just can't resist the temptation to try to pick a fight with me, can you? You seethe with what one perspicacious Prussian referred to as the rage of dreaming sheep. Have fun with your bile and your outrage, dancing boy--who won't be joining you is me.
(And i'm not suprised to see you ally yourself to the Rapist Boy--a.k.a. Hawkeye--your dreaming rage will lead you into any devil's bargain if you think you can take a swipe at me. How pathetic you are.)
Let me be candid; I empathize better with people that speak English. Mind you, that is regardless of their national origin, or complexion. The key is English in my empathic synaptic connections. Also, the more grammatically correct English, the more empathy. I also value correct spelling and correct punctuation.
