      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Governor says fuck it, and leaves for the mountain

Did anyone catch that Fox snuck the (D) in there next to his name in the initial reports instead of the ®?

You mean like they do quite often in inital reports when some republican official is involved in a scandal? It is quite a testimony to what they think of their audience's intellect that they hope to get away with that crap over and over again.

 

On Fox, Mark Sanford "(D)" holds press conference

If it turns out Barack Obama likes to dress up in Michelle's clothes (that'd be a funny mental image!), who cares? Private should be private.

 

I totally agree that private should be private.

 

I also think that guys (politician or not) who fuck around on their wives (who are not in some kind of swinging relationship) are scumbags with no moral compass. She's a bitch? doesn't fuck you anymore? you don't love each other anymore? whatever. Been there. Be a fucking man, do the honorable thing and leave her before you start carrying on another relationship. /end preach

Meanwhile, ABC "News" whores itself out to the Administration vis a vis Obama's health care proposal with what amounts to an unpaid infomercial and nary a peep from j_b and his red brigade.

So does Fox doing the same thing for the Bush administration make things fair and balanced? Or guilty of the same crime?

 

Let he who is without sin cast the forst stone.....

ABC broadcasts under a restricted license on public airwaves. FOX does not.

 

It's not about FCC Regulations, it's about Journalistic Integrity.

I thought they did it to Larry Craig, too, but apparently that was some local station- http://bostonist.com/attachments/boston_caroline/101707-larry-craig-whdh.jpg

 

They switched Lincoln Chafee and Sheldon Whitehouse- http://www3.allaroundphilly.com/blogs/reporter/wesleym/Whitehouse%20as%20a%20Rep.jpg

 

And Lamar Alexander- http://www3.allaroundphilly.com/blogs/reporter/wesleym/Lamar%20-%20D.jpg

 

Pat Toomey, the likely Republican candidate for Arlen Specter's Senate seat thusly confused- http://images2.dailykos.com/images/user/191280/toomeypartyswitch.jpg

So it's safe to say you're upset about ABC trading White House access for this half-hour long infomercial?

Now, now...lets view the "piece" before we make any judgments. What if they accidently report some news in the process??

I dunno, how long do they have air a rebuttal? THis is an empty argument FW. Don't hold ABC up for political promotion and pandering when it goes on at both ends of the spectrum. Outlets and networks and their affiliations and allegiances are why I mine the interwebs for news.

Why do you care anyway? You won't be watching it anyway since you're glued to Fox, where "fair and balanced" means they'll have Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, AND Ann Coulter each evening.

More lies from Fairweather. ABC said they would cover all sides of the issue, and if recent history is any guide, the single-payer option is the one likely to get least coverage despite being suported by a majority of americans according to polls:

A recent FAIR study (3/6/09) showed that of hundreds of newspaper and broadcast stories on healthcare reform in the week leading up to Obama's March 5 healthcare summit, only five included the views of single-payer advocates; none of those appeared on television. A Nexis search of all ABC News transcripts for the past six months shows that single-payer has been mentioned only four times, three of them by opponents dismissing the idea (3/5/09, 6/14/09, 6/14/09) and once in a reference to Medicare by liberal economist Paul Krugman (5/31/09).

In other words, the corporate media does not cover the progressive point of view (duh), yet republicans whine about censorship and the corporate media provides them with the echo-chamber they need to amplify their whining. What a pathetic farce!
