    Why can`t news just be reported?
    Why can`t they just tell me what happened without telling me what I`m supposed to think about it!?

    Original article here.
    Video of the entire 2 hour meeting here, though it`s about as interesting as watching C-SPAN.

    So if you`re like me you`ll find it enthralling, and if you have a soul, you might want to go out and get laid or something.

    I kind of hate when TYT is posted here because there ends up being a lot of comments from people who don`t understand TYT`s format. But good video as usual and I`m not too surprised.

    im so sick of hearing all these politicians ramble on and on about how great a country america is. I know that its a great country you dont need to tell me that and focus on something that makes a difference. I want a politician that isnt going to flatter me. I want a politician that is going to have a good policy and is going to deliver on it and not compromise it to appeal to all the parties. But, unfortunately, american politics really are in the pooter.

    A little more cooperation and the guilty parties (Dems and Rupubs) will scramble.

    Fake "moral equivalancy", a hallmark of the left.

    TYT? Salon? And IABers whine & cry about FoxNews?

    I could be wrong on this, but I would think if your protest is going to require extra security (KKK walking through a town), you can be charged for that. Also, if you leave a mess behind, and it`s cleaned up at taxpayer`s expense, I would expect that to be charged to the organization as well.

    @5Cats - Differences between TYT and Fox: TYT is open about their bias; Fox pretends to be unbiased while being extremely biased. TYT fact checks and has made few errors (usually the errors come with their for fun stories and not their political stories); Fox doesn`t seem to care to fact check.

    Also, you may wish to run a quick check Cat, on the number of political stories I`ve posted, vs the number of political stories you`ve posted.

    That`d be: 3/12 for me (25%), vs 16/25 on your first page (64%). That`s just the stuff that makes it through. Your claims of bias ring somewhat hollow.

    Additionally, I posted Raw Footage, of a meeting, that obviously happened.

    You`ve been known to title your posts, with the opposite conclusion, to what the article posits. (Example: "Globe Not Warming Says NASA" was your title. NASA`s results show it is, even in the link you posted.)

    There`s bias (I agree with the liberals).
    Then there`s lying (You misrepresented hard data to fit your political agenda).

    @LillianDulci: that`s what I say about MSNBC, CNN (&etc) vs various right-wing blogs. But other IABers seem to apply your correct reasoning ONLY to one side of the spectrum, eh?
    They contend that a "News Station" is obviously better than any right-wing Blog on the facts. The exact opposite for Fox & lefty blog.

    @Baalthy: You`ve changed the subject and launced a personal attack! I am SO surprised.
    It`s A Pattern With YOU eh?
    That makes it 2 for 2 today, for those keeping score. It`s as if he cannot stop himself.

    You`ve never actually watched Fox News, have you?

    Easy answer to the current discussion.
    There is no such thing as an unbiased news channel.

    They won`t be any joining together of these two groups. OWS sees republicans as evil corporate lapdogs, The Tea Party sees democrats as evil union/socialist lapdogs.

    They may both believe the government is corrupt, but exactly `Who` is corrupting it is another story.

    Less government representatives and more government services. Do you know how many roads we could fix by firing the house of representatives and just counting all votes, because I do not.

    @ CrakrJak: It`s not about "who". OWS and Tea Party protesters, don`t want to point the finger at anyone. My opinion is to get rid of all political parties and start over. Everyone for themselves! Survival of the Fittest!

    The big problem is that the Occupy movement isn`t racist.

    It`s our obligation and duty as American citizens, to change government policies AND leadership if said leaders and policies threaten the destruction of our country. Our pursuit of happiness, our freedom, our lives.I don`t know why everybody is just sitting around flapping their gums. Get together and lets do something. The American military (All of them) made an oath to protect this country from ALL enemies. Foreign AND domestic.We are not the enemies. We are the people. WE run the show. The government works for us. The military works for us. If you owned a business, and had a few jerk off employees that continually screwed up and didn`t care, would you keep them on payroll, or kick their dumb asses to the curb? The government is in place to regulate and govern all our best interests. Their not doing their jobs folks. Keep them on the payroll, or kick them the hell out? This issue is nothing but common sense.

    @5Cats - I don`t watch MSNBC and CNN so I can`t really say, but I wouldn`t be surprised if they`re similar to fox in many ways.

    @OldOllie - Are you trying to imply that Fox is unbiased? rooooofl funniest thing I`ve heard all week, thanks :D

    @uber-idiot - I believe TYT`s captions are just auto generated. I`ve found them stupid ever since they started doing them since they never make sense. They really need to get an actual person to transcribe the audio.

    I agree Lillian. The captions are distracting. Makes you wonder if he even watches what he produces.

    davymid: No I didn`t agree with you, I was just spelling out the reasons why they won`t get together.

    I`ve personally attended Tea Party rallies and will do so again, if they are needed.

    That Turks guy is a douche. Totally unprofessional and smugly biased. I hate his face.
