      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!

Republican Nominees for Prez

Yeah, I'm not a big fan, but more 'cause it's been shown that these shows constitute the primary news source for a disturbingly large number of liberals.

show me your internutz searching skillz are better than mine - i recall recently reading/hearing a study that showed the very opposite, but didn't find it in the 30 seconds i allowed myself to look for it :)

okay fine, "john stewart viewers more informed" is google-worthy - seems the topic has been kicked about plenty

 

impartial take on the subject?

 

I'll look around for the "primary news source" bit. At any rate, if Daily Show watchers are more informed in general it doesn't necessarily mean they're more informed from watching the show. At best, this study found the Daily Show isn't really any worse (or better) in terms of substantive content than other news shows within the infotainment complex. Not exactly a ringing endorsement given the current media landscape.

 

On a different note, it's my sneaking suspicion that despite their liberal orientation, these ratings-driven "news" shows have done as much as Fox to enable the kind of train-wreck gawking celebrity politics we see now. Laugh it up, but not too hard.

"innocent until proven guilty"

 

"we must wait until all the facts are known"

 

and crimes were associated with my examples, btw

 

Cain refused to give the facts, which naturally allowed to speculate he was hiding something.

 

The crimes in your examples weren't about marital infidelity.

 

Trial in the court of public opinion! Guilty... you must be hiding something. Man you are a joke.

 

Kathleen Willey accused Clinton of rape... he refused to give facts... GUILTY AS CHARGED

Clinton was accused of sexual harassment you dipshit.

 

and there was a huge fucking settlement, BTW

 

Jones' story has gold digger written all over (she waited for 3 years and there was a witness who contradicted her), which is certainly not the case for Cain. But whatever, I certainly don't have the stomach to dig into that drivel.

Any way, I'm just fuckin' wicha, Kakenator. I know you're not capable of any cognition above babytalk. I'm not really looking for any logic in your posts. Sorry to pick on the weak of mind. My bad.

do you believe this? But I thought you were for all the "suspects" at Gitmo to be held without proof or trial.

Gag orders and pay offs do allow to speculate quite reasonably. Unfortunate that you can't see that.

The rationalization of the retarded continues. Move along... no hypocrisy to see here!

i didn't think anyone was saying the daily show itself made folks more informed, more like informed people like the show b/c they actually understand and appreciate the satirization they can find there for the stories they know

 

bill maher and jon stewart are the dessert course after the sad-sack main course of faux and the like...

For the record, I condemn Bill Clinton. Roundly.

 

I do too but not for his extra-marital dallying. He never claimed to be holier than thou on the family front like conservative hypocrites do almost all the time. The Clinton-is-a sex-machine witch hunt was also an attempt by neanderthals to shove their values down our throats.

Funny they're not saying that about Cain. He is black, though. Black Gold.

No rationalization and no hypocrisy here, douchebag. It's the way I read the situation then and now.

Neither is the Kakester...nor will he.

 

I mean, what's there to say? Another rich, sexually harassing blowhard get's his comeuppance. It happens so rarely, why not celebrate it?

 

Fuck those gold-diggin' bitches, right?

AS if advocating for social policy was comparable to telling someone who, when and how to fuck. But keep making an ass of yourself.
