    So are we to believe that some of you actually find ABC, CBS, NBC and their affiliates as the "true voice" of news in America. You have got to be kidding!!!

    There's a bad epidemic of putting words in other people's mouths around here. I didn't say that.

    They do not openly give millions to political parties like Fox does. They do not openly solicit campaign contributions on air like Fox does. They do not have political candidates and future candidates on their payroll providing mass media megaphones for their party.

    Most news channels distinguish between "news" and "commentery". Fox does not. Their "news" IS political commentery.

    Having said that, I watch them occasionally, and have no problem with a network being a political outlet, but just don't masquerade as an unbiased news source. The others are not perfect, but much closer to a legitimate news source than Rupert's clan.

    While almost every network is guilty at some degree at times of bias, Fox has taken it unashamedly to new levels.

    That's why you hate it, right? Things cost money that you ain't got it, ergo, the country sucks.

    BTW, the notion that NBC is paying Bush so he can advertise his book for free is, well, silly. FWIW, he's appearing on other networks as well.

    I thought the same thing. The second video in the OP looked especially slowed down.

    You are a douche bag. How about some insightful analysis from you instead of constant trolling?

    I watched the interview last evening instead of the first quarter of Monday night football. I thought it was an excellent interview. What jumped out the most, for me. Was first h0w he spoke President Obama’s name only once. Mat said it just 3 times. When asked pointed questions about the fault for things he simply said it was his fault. Presidents do not get “do overs”. Then he stated President Obama has enough enemies and he is not going to be one of them. I think Matt asked some great questions. I am going to buy the book.

    He must have landed on head when he fell off that wagon not to remember he started drinking again
    If this crapola were true, how come we are just hearing of it? Certainly this would have been the stuff the MSM would have jumped on and not let go.

    Do we all need to ask your holiness permission before posting?
    Is it topic by topic or a daily type of thing?
    Am I allowed to post today? On what threads?
    Do you need to constantly train to maintain such a high standard
    Of certified dipshit, or are you a natural?
