Some of it is stupid. One of the points is REALLY good:

9) "The media is liberal."

Ann Coulter complains about the liberal media through the "liberal media," where she's regularly given a forum, yet Michael Moore has appeared on less than a handful of shows, though his book's been a bestseller for six months. During the election, the corporately-controlled media portrayed Al Gore in a negative light, while touting Bush's phony ranch-hand charm, and according to a report in F.A.I.R (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting), 75% of the dominant sources of opinion on all three major networks are Republican. Yet the brainwashed continue to believe the media has a liberal bias. Go figure.

****Michael Moore has appeared on less than a handful of shows****

because he's and idiot who constantly interupts other guests. I've seen him before and he'd interupt anyone speaking (liberal ploy when they're being beat).

***though his book's been a bestseller for six months***

not currently is it?

****During the election, the corporately-controlled media portrayed Al Gore in a negative light****

Al Gore is in a negative light no matter where he is...the media is so ultra liberal, i can't believe you can't see that.

****while touting Bush's phony ranch-hand charm*****

That's what got Clinton elected..his charm

****Yet the brainwashed continue to believe the media has a liberal bias****

nice cop-out

Some of you may think parts of that article are stupid or biased, but I agree with 99% of it. That article pretty much summed up my thoughts nicely. Heaven forbid I have the gall to call most of the people in the most powerful nation on earth Brainwashed...

nobody has said the information on T.V. is wrong...it's just censored. The public is only getting part of the story, the rest is omitted or downplayed.

Same thing in my book...it's not the full story

***The public is only getting part of the story, the rest is omitted or downplayed. ****

The things on the Internet are not challenged and any smuck with a computer can spout a conspiracy theory. I bet i could write an article claiming that hillary Clinton has a penis but secretly had a sex change to cover it up and some moron would cite it or take it as fact.

Hey, at least we have sources. Your evidence that the media is liberally biased is basically repeating yourself over and over.

No not really. A person writes how terrible the US is and people like you say...hell that's good enough for me..

Actually it's based on opinion. My opinion is based on common sense...I don't need to site someone to prove how i think about things (like liberals do...stick their finger in the air) However when someone comes on here and says 2546 people were murdered by the hands of American Mcdonalds workers then i want to know where they got that number from...why is that so hard for you liberals to understand that?

You don't see the irony in the fact you are asking others to provide proof for their opinions, yet you don't understand why you should have to provide proof for yours? :confused:
