I just saw Bill Press debate Megyn Kelly on the pros and cons of "The Fairness Doctrine." Megyn, as usual, was her feisty self, but she missed some of the oxymorons in Press's argument.
 
Press repeatedly stated that "public airways are just like public highways" while totally ignoring the difference between the granting of a broadcast license and the funding of public highways thru taxes and fees.
 
When Kelly asked, "So, what'll happen Bill, then places like NPR are going to be required to carry Rush Limbaugh?"
Press responded, "We're talking commercial radio, not public radio."
 
Question: Does that mean that it's OK for broadcast stations that receive funding from taxpayers to be unfair, while broadcast stations that don't receive funding from taxpayers must be fair?"
 
Under this logic, Juan Williams should be allowed to say that Michelle Obama has “got this Stokely-Carmichael-in-a-designer-dress thing going,” on a NPR station that pays a portion of his salary from taxpayer dollars, but not on a station that receives no public funding.

The Mayor of Stamford...Dan Malloy turned up on F&F this morning.
Doocy of course tried to be the smartalec but Mr Malloy was ready for him and adeptly turned the tables to show Doocy up for the game he was trying to play. The mayor got feed up and told Doocy straight..."Steve you just have to start telling the truth sooner or latter"
As folk always want proof of my claims....here is the video.

Bill Press may be the dumbest man in talk radio. He used to have a local show in LA. It failed.
 
7 years ago, there was a phony internet scam about "The Satenstein Institute" that had determined through analyisis that Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter had IQ's in the high 100s while W, his dad, and Ronald Reagan had IQ's in below 100. Bill Press reported this scam as if it were fact just within the last year, many years after it was first debunked. Bill Press needs government legislation to get ratings. He cannot do it on his own.

More lies from Haggis. Haggis made the smear that Bret Baier had said something bad back in early December. That was BEFORE he took over for Hume.
 
Haggis is avoiding the truth...again.
 
He cannot provide one quote that is "bad". Not one, which is what I have been asking from him for two months now, and he just cannot provide one quote of Baier saying something "Bad". Now, Haggis has to take it one step further and smear the entire segment.

As for covering the Obama administration, Baier tells Kurtz, "Fox doesn't have to be in a mode of attack, but it has to be in a mode of covering stories that perhaps other news organizations are not going to do...There's an argument to be made that Fox could do even better in this environment."

I would think that Haggis's purpose here would have been clear to everyone by now. It's not to discuss developments in cable news. It's to turn every open thread into an argument about how bad Fox is. And sure enough, people just jump on the bandwagon and fall into his trap.
 
If you're asking me, who gives a crap what some hick mayor says about Doocy? Or what some guy who's not even an American citizen thinks about it? The more you feed the Haggis Monster, the more it will devour these threads and this site.
 
I'm not the sort that seeks to control the conversation here, so those who want to give him his wish will do so if they insist. But really, aren't there more important things to discuss every day than the eeevils of Doocy and O'Reilly? There's no law that says you have to pay any attention whatsoever to Haggie's hijacking attempts. Maybe someone else has a discussion topic that isn't right from Haggis's moldy playbook? Anyone? Bueller?

I have mixed feelings about Greta's interview with young Bristol Palin.
 
On one hand, I'm so sorry to see this young woman come back into the spot light and think that her mother should draw a boundary here in the way that was drawn for Chelsea Clinton and the Bush girls.
 
That might not have been feasible during the campaign with her daughter's high profile pregnancy, but it is now.
 
On the other hand, since there is to be an interview (and it's a valid assumption that there is because Mrs. Palin ok'd it), then Greta needs to ask some frank tough questions. Questions such as had there been any talk of the two getting married before the campaign, etc.

The jury has already decided.
 
The Moderator's Privilege Quorum has made its findings on the Pegleg Peggy Matter.
 
Item 1: Pegleg Peggy twiced called J$ a liar for saying her message was not posted because of a violation of the rules regarding language. Finding: The respondent attempted to post a message that referred to Steve Doocy as "Douchey". The respondent claims there was no inappropriate language in her post, but the rules are clear:
 
We've had our fill of the insipid FNC insult phrases that pervade the cybersphere, and they will not be permitted here. These include, but are not limited to, such knee-slappers as "Faux News", "O'Lielly", "Fixed Noise", "David Ass-Man", "Billo" and the like, as well as disguised versions such as "F!x;d N0;s;" etc.
 
The respondent's insult to Steve Doocy is clearly inappropriate and not allowed under the rules of posting. The respondent nonetheless claimed that J$ was a liar. The Quorum finds this claim to be: False
 
Verdict: Pegleg Peggy was given repeated opportunities to retract her name-calling and false personal attack on J$ and refused to do so. Under the rules of Moderator's Privilege, her posting privileges will not resume while she spends a lovely, relaxing time at Exile Island.
 
The Quorum has spoken.

The attackers are caucusing over at the kennel forum, wondering why 'butt pirate' is permitted but "Douchey" isn't. That's easy to answer. 1., "Butt pirate" was not a personal attack on another commenter. And B., Neither is it a violation of our language rules.
 
Unlike some sites I have made the rules for posting here crystal clear. Either these people post without knowing the rules (never a smart idea, but then again, they do come from the newshounds), or else they post knowing that they are deliberately breaking the rules.

"Olby ducks the debate..."
 
My gosh, did anybody read that bit from TV Newser? Olbermann is actually reveling in the fact that he won't allow her on in a debate forum.
 
And I guarantee you; some lefties will read Olby's first sentence - "She is welcome on Countdown" - and declare that she did get invted to a debate. They will puposefully ignore the second sentence - "She is invted to buy commercial time" - that points out that Olbermann is gleefully ducking a debate.
 
Slimy. Just plain slimy.

I wonder if there's still an electric satellite dish on Exile Island.

No, Johnny, Haggis sold the satellite dish to some natives in return for loco weed.
 
Now there's just a rusted out tricycle hooked up to an old boat motor, which in turn is connected to a dilapidated black and white.
 
Whenever Patrick wants to watch cartoons he has to pedal like crazy while OTM balances the rabbit ears off his bowler.

Frankly, with Keith's logic, any opinion he ventures on the bail-out provisions in the stimulus package should be discounted due to his monetary interest in the success of G.E.
 
That would apply to Rachel Maddow as well, and since she continues to be an employee of Air America, any opinion she ventures on the Fair Doctrine should be automatically suspect and assumed tainted solely by self-interest.

My my. Pegleg is still smarting over getting caught in a lie:
 
Imagine banning someone for calling Doocey a silly name. How sad is that.
 
What's this? Oh, it's another lie. She wasn't banned for calling Doocey a name. That post never went thru. That was the only sanction for the name-calling. She could've kept posting but then she called me a liar--twice--for saying that post had a rules violation in it. Which it did.
 
She got sent to Exile Island for name calling, personal attacks, which were false, but even then she had the chance to correct herself, which she refused to do. So she's sitting in the pound making up new lies ("banned for calling Doocey a name"!). That sort of thing does nothing to help her stay on Exile Island go faster.

I've noticed over the past few weeks "aap/55" seems to be paying close attention and acting as counsel to haggy, i.e. posting a lot of his comments and responses here in the ot forum over there.

peg leg seems to be obsessed with Vietnam, too. I wonder if she e-mails hillary every day asking why bj clinton didn't serve, too.

"Crooks and Liars found this 7 days ago on www."news"hounds.us"
 
That's one of the funniest and most ironic headlines I've ever seen. A blog dedicated to smearing the Conservatives getting their "news" from a blog dedicated to smearing Fox News #1.

Aunty Em, you should be asking what a Patsy is rather than who.

Okay, I'll play along: What's a Patsy?
 
Since someone called me Patsy, I think I should know the meaning.
