    Or falsely lableing the MSM as "left" and "liberal" was/is an intentional strategy by conservatives to legitimize Fox and other overtly partisan conservative media.

    If we had a "ridiculous reach of the day award" option on TH this would be a runaway winner. Posting inane stuff like this truly puts you on a level of irrelevancy like Fred. Your better than that wgb...

    Do you understand the difference between being an addict and youthful experimentation?

    Just offering a possibility at least as credible as the post I responded too. I do think the MSM is "biased," but not on a strictly partisan basis. If you traffic in left wing media for any length of time, you'll see that they are just as obsessed with the MSM not repeating their favored talking points too.

    Do you understand how little anyone gives a sh*t about anyone's past drug use?

    We. don't. give. a. sh*t.

    Not Billy Bob's, not W's, not Barry's (all POTUS's)...

    ...and damn sure not a f'n radio host's past drug use. :dead:

    A case could be made that the media, as an institution, inherently skews Left. Like business or the military is a natural fit for the Right. The degree of bias is certainly exaggerated for effect and manipulation, though, by the beneficiaries of discord and division.

    Do we have journalists today? Seems like a small number. The majority are "publicists" for the regime.

    All of this media hype about the so-called government shut down is so the cash-strapped DNC can raise lots of money, which they're presently doing off of the shutdown.

    CORRUPTION RULES!!!!!

    The issue with ACA is it being built as a giant Ponzi scheme. It should be illegal and those responsible be arrested for fraud. Think about it. It's built to steal money from the young to pay for the old. It's also a perfect example of introducing redistribution of assets. Next, it will be incomes. A food cook will eventually make as much as an ER nurse.

    Agreed, in some cases, but what's happening now is beyond overt and ridiculous.

    if you watch the news and don't think its completely bias then you are the reason this country is going downhill. go live somewhere in europe or canada, sit on your butt, get free healthcare, go support gay marriage, go support higher taxes, and GET OUT OF AMERICA!!! stop tearing down this great country, that was founded on principles of Christianity!

    It is already here professor. The pay czar caps bank salaries. And the feminists have proposed another czar to determine that a female secretary should make the same salary as a plumber.

    In your world, they should pay slacker professors the same salaries as CEOs.

    :no:

    This diatribe could be attributed to any insurance policy ever created.

    shab- my shoulder pain from the surgery 4 months ago is still high-I recently reinjured it doing therapy and may have to have another surgery-I would love to find something that would just allow me to sleep through the night-hell just 1 night- I am not excusing Rush's addiction but after the past 4 months and the inability to find something to help me just a little with the pain, I can understand how so many get addicted to oxy-I have refused it-but I can tell you if my shoulder is this effin bad and I have to sleep sitting up, then I cannot begin to imagine the pain from disc issues in a persons back- I have seen first hand what my oldest daughter went thru with 3 ruptured discs- they gave her oxy and the fight to get her off it has been huge- rehab twice and we finally think we have it licked-but that is some really bad stuff, that unfortunately works well but is EXTREMELY addicting

    you want to attack him for his political views go ahead-but back off the prescription drug stuff
