What the average american sees is is the agenda put out by the left leaning media... it isn't about commentators, or editorials.. it's about the agenda... like mentioned in this thread,,, the absense of 'Democrat' as a label for any wrongdoing politician if they are Democratic,, but an automatic emphasized 'REPUBLICAN' label placed anytime the offenind politician is a republican... this is just a minor, but all pervading whiff of the stink that permeates the left-leaning media...
An employee can be a right or left leaning person, but they work for their employer, and they won't be employed long if they go against the grain of the agenda of the employer. It's as simple as that. You can list, and list and list, but the media outlets, the TV, newspapers and the magazines set the tone and agenda... not the individual authors, or talking heads... it's their paycheck that guides their comments, and the editors that clip the 'outside the agenda' comments...
Face it, If you look at TV my numbers are pretty close... the left leaning agendas represent about 80-90% of the available TV programing...
As for the infrastructure being built in Iraq, I agree, but I believe that without trying to win the war in Iraq, by winning the hearts of the next generations, then the war will come to the states, and we will be repairing a war-damaged country, our own...
Good evening Greg. Many of those people on my list are seen multiple times a day
even on liberal stations like MSNBC. (Pat Buchannon alone is on every MSNBC show from Hardball through Countdown almost every day.
Please name some of these" leftys" that take up so much media time that the conservative voice is not heard?
Then turn on Talk Radio & find any
Leftys. My point is, & the reason why I continue to name names, is that, on balance (Fox vs MSNBC) both sides are (at least) pretty well represented.
As for this.."As for the infrastructure being built in Iraq, I agree, but I believe that without trying to win the war in Iraq, by winning the hearts of the next generations, then the war will come to the states, and we will be repairing a war-damaged country, our own... " A few points
1. The war in Iraq was over 3 years ago & we won....Yet, Al Quaeda is stronger now than ever.
2. Our mere presence in Iraq is creating morer suicide bombers than any hearts we could ever win over.
3. Do you really ( I mean really) beleive that we are winning the hearts of youngsters over there? They see their familys killed in street fighting & blame most of it on us. (therre is no way to fight street to street , in a civil war without killing civilians.
4. Who's side of Iraq'a civil war are we on?
Aside from right or wrong, we simply cant afford to stay in Iraq. Our real fight is in Afganistan & the tribal regions of Pakistan against Al Queda. Our economy is in shambles from the billions per month we are wasting in Iraq & is making us less safe here in the US. We desperately need that money right here. How about winning the hearts & minds of our own middle class, right here?
I just dont see a good side to stayimng. It;'s just like Vietnam towrds the end....To try to save face we are throwing good money after bad, young lives after dead young Americans! Enough!! I have a 16 & a 12 year old Grandson & a 2 year old Grandaughter. I want my
tax money being spent right here, on them.
