oh so we "progressives" (I'm assuming GBeck gave you that one) deflect, evade whatever. Then you went to talk about corperate donations to campaign coverage. The issue at hand, and at the story was that a news station that is supposided to fair and bais makes direct contribution to one party in particular, it`s completely different if it is the employees that donate their own personal money, because people are free to do what they want. (again, if that information is even true, because I really may have missed it)
Personally I don`t really care if they donated or not, they just should recongize that they aren`t so fair and balanced after all. My issue was the number of logical falacies in your arguement haha

My point in posting this was not so much to simply point out that Fox donates to the Republican party, but rather to point out the hipocracy involved. Fox makes a point of saying they are fair and balanced and the "no spin zone" every chance they get, yet this is obviously not true, as evidenced by their political contributions. I'm not disputing that other media organiztions contribute politically, just that you don`t hear the "fair and balanced" talk every two seconds on other networks who contribute one way or another.

One final post Burton, then I have to go. You claimed you couldn't even find sources for the info I mentioned in my original post. Perhaps you should search harder next time. It comes straight from the FEC! LOL
Quite public and readily available to anyone who knows how to search. (Found it in less than 20 seconds)
Bottom line is people have preferences plain and simple and can donate to whoever the heck they want. Is it not their right to do so? I suppose it`s only a right when they donate to Liberal causes eh?

Continued: Hayes urged his colleagues – especially the straight news reporters who were charged with covering the campaign in a neutral way – to bury the Wright scandal. “I’m not saying we should all rush en masse to defend Wright. If you don’t think he’s worthy of defense, don’t defend him! What I’m saying is that there is no earthly reason to use our various platforms to discuss what about Wright we find objectionable,” Hayes said.
I could go on, and fill up 10 pages with all the conversations that were found by members of the liberal media planning, and discussing how to manipulate their reports specifically to help the Democrat party. So are you all going to condemn this, or are you going to start making excuses as you always do?
I'd be willing to bet that most of you Libs had no idea this even happened in 08. Too busy looking for dirt on the Conservatives to read real news. Feigned outrage - Gotta lo
