    She can't discuss it.

    The media needs to be called out on how it steers public opinion.

    The media is a BIG part of the problem in this country. We need to start calling out the media more and more.

    Well, that response from her is practically an admission of guilt.

    You better re-think that statement.

    They are no benefit to the public.

    Reporter's "your in my house" and "you are irritating me" statements tell me she has no interest in a viable discussion. You are there to answer her questions her way or no way at all.

    That is not a journalistic search for the truth. The story is a scam - a response story about an original story about an event 50 years ago that is based on other's memories and meant to touch an emotional tone to hurt the Presidential candidate. Really? If I told you I received a speeding ticket when I was 16, would you automatically consider me an unsafe driver today? Would my 30 years of subsequent perfect driving record have any input into this discussion because my impression is the Press would just be hounding me on the issue about the actual event 30 years ago.


    Personally, I think you need to be an idiot to run for President of the United States if you have any sort of personal financial or business success to your credit. This country deserves exactly what they elect - community organizers that burn through your money without bounds of budgets or economic consequence until, one day soon, the currency you have will be worthless and the freedoms and economic lifestyle you once enjoyed are gone.

    Can you imagine if past Presidents had to undergo the current levels of paparazzi media scrutiny?

    To the left, the MSM is a great benefit.......that was my meaning, and it's correct.

    However, I do get what your meaning is, as in the MSN is no benefit to America, as a method of distributing public information.....that, it ain't.

    "You're in my house" .....

    "It most certainly is not your house...."

    "It is the public's airwaves, and you are just licensed to be a responsible steward"

    ....."Which you most certainly have not been" ......

    Let's assume for a second that MSNBC is broadcast over the public airwaves, even though it's not.

    Where on Earth did this "licensed to be a responsible steward" stuff come from? That seems to be as far outside the purview of the FCC as can be.

    No. The media is *THE* problem. MSNBC is the worst - they are the official news outlet of the Obama campaign.

    Yeah, the media is enemy #1. With their armies of agents swarming the nation, kicking in people's doors and holding guns to their heads, forcing them to watch and believe their "news"... :upeyes:


    Free market not working fast enought for you? Should the government step in and enforce some kind of fairness doctrine?
