Except most liberals refuse to call out radical Islam and you just have to look at the media. There is a serious double standard.

Even on P&N many prefer to attack those who criticize radical Islam and pull the race card because they're idiots.
The media is controlled by the right wing. Murdoch owns a huge chunk of the media from the WSJ to Fox News, the biggest "news" network on tv. The rest are middle/right to right.

Everyone criticizes "radical islam," so we have NO IDEA what you are babbling on about.

This has absolutely nothing to do with "radical islam" anyhow, so just stfu about it.

Media controlled by the right wing? LOL! You're a complete moron if you believe that the same way you believe there aren't any liberals.

Liberals don't criticize it, some do but most don't.

STFU? Yeah real toughguy on an online forum.

Radical Islamists say far worse things about gay people and most idiot liberals just ignore them. Gotta love the hypocrisy.
what the tapdancing jesus penis are you on about? at what point did this discussion have anything to do with radical islamists?

is it that you just couldn't miss your opportunity to inject your hatred of muslims into any thread, regardless of the topic?

And what have *you* contributed. Why nothing but the exact same statements that you've made over and over and over again.

You're using macros aren't you?
I actually contributed to the thread unlike you who came in just to call me out. I pointed out the hypocrisy of liberals.

Corporate media is controlled by Wall Street, which is largely a right wing entity.

you came in to troll your anti-muslim horseshit in a thread that has nothing to do with it, because you are an insufferable little prick.

kindly ban yourself. I'm betting you are still in Canada because the USA won't even let you back in. amirite?

So another whackjob in addition to shadow.What about msnbc? If you think msnbc is right wing then something is seriously wrong with you.
msnbc has like, 2% ratings share. Wow--what a threat! The fact is that Murdoch heads the largest media empire in the entire world. No one controls more news than he does.

How can you possibly accept such facts then turn around and make hilariously uninformed proclamations?

You DO realize that you are using a video from a program that had a Japanese, Russian, and black woman on the bridge of a starship during the cold war, right? It had ghe first interracial kiss on tv and one of, if not the first, lesbian kisses. It was about how the world eventually united, became communist, and was about exploring and accepting the unknown...It is about everything that you are against. The Ferengi are the closest to current day humans and were designed to be so.

I stated facts. Fox is the biggest "news" program. More and more publications are being bought out by Murdoch, such as the WSJ, which is now an off the cliff right wing rag. We have the democrats pushing forward the ideas of the republicans from 20 years ago, as the republicans move further and further to the right. The past year saw more than 200 abortion restrictions passed througout the states by republicans. Our healthcare reform was lifted straight from Gingrich and the heritage foundation. Our loose regulations allowed BP to destroy the gulf, wall street to take down the world economy, and the wealth gap reach all new levels, etc etc.

Where do you think a mythical "left" fits into that?

Oh, and Brent Spiner would tear you apart if he encountered you. The guy is brilliant, on and off the stage.

I consider msnbc a joke. I considered CNBC to be HARD right. Just because they aren't straight republican propagandists, doesn't automatically make them the polar opposite.

Hmmmm I guess those on the left watch Fox to see what is said or reported which results in higher ratings for the channel.
There is no left in US politics, outside of one socialist.

Anyone that watches fox news, on any side, is a masochist. Hell, anyone who watches any of the US "news" stations are masochists.

Have you gotten anyone to believe this line of BS you've been trying to sell?
Well, I could do what the Republicans do. They have repeated over and over to their mindless drones that they are the weak victims being oppressed by a group that doesn't exist, all the while expanding to have control over the largest group of media to the world.

I've stated facts, and all you and your ilk can come up with in response is the regurgitation that you are taught, devoid of any semblance of facts. It is similar to how christians, despite being the supermajority, going around claiming on every network(especially fox) of being some oppressed minority. Telling people that they are victims is a surprisingly effective tool.

I can show policies, studies of media bias, and who owns various media companies if you'd like... but you have yet to provide one single refutation.

How full of crap are you? The government was responsible for what happened with the financial crash by forcing banks to give loans to people who couldn't afford them.

AHAHAHAHA! Listen, you conspiracy filled loon...

Until you back up your previous claim, where I've asked for a citation about ten times now, you can't expect to be taken seriously.

You walk around stating bullshit as fact and then refuse to post a shred of evidence backing yourself up.

You are a joke.

LMAO!!! I watch local news as well as read Reuters and AP news articles as I prefer to read news that has as little bias as possible. Being a moderate conservative I see the bias in the liberal leaning stations (CNN, MSNBC/NBC, ABC, & CBS) and the conservative leaning station Fox. If you can't recognize the political leaning of these stations you're biased and/or blind.

No.

That's not how it happened.

Bank deregulation allowed some banks to offer any poor dope a mortgage, knowing they could sell off the mortgage and never worry about it. Guess who ended up paying the bill?
