I have a question does Hannity or Beck ever lie or stretch the truth for their own gain.
While Olbermann stretches the truth, Ashley, your channel of choice does the same. And what is up with the 'Czechoslovakia' line.  
Ashley and your deal with ratings, usually the Number one rated show on all of cable is usually Spongebob or Monday Night Raw, does that mean those shows are the best, well of course not. It just shows that while ratings does equal money, it does not always mean quality.
People watch O'Reilly for shock value or what he will say next, and less watch Olbermann, well he is just way too liberal for middle of the road Democrats, but by him getting a recent contract extention NBC has seen he has some value.

Hannity, Coulter, Limbaugh, O'Reilly all exaggerate, distort, take out of context and sometimes are just dishonest - yes, dishonest - when they go after their opponents.
 
So does Olbermann.
 
The difference is that Hannity and Coulter et al. aren't allowed within 1000 yards of a newsroom and none of them pretend to be news anchors or objective reporters.  
 
Olbermann and the suits at MSNBC insist that he is somehow an honest and objective chronicler of events.
 
The day that Olbermann is banned from the news room, the day he and his bosses admit he's a commentator, the day his show is labeled opinion and not a news hour, is the day 90% of the criticism goes away. At least from me.

Ashley,
I have a question does Hannity or Beck ever lie or stretch the truth for their own gain. While Olbermann stretches the truth, Ashley, your channel of choice does the same.  
 
I barely am familiar with Beck. I know Hannity well, never known him to lie. I define a lie as knowingly passing on information one knows to be false. There is a difference between being wrong and lying. I've heard Hannity make mistakes and correct them soon after.
 
Regardless, you are responding to my post about Olbermann. Even if your claims that Hannity and Beck lying is true, what does this have to do with Olbermann? Are you saying that I must be "balanced" in my criticisms?
 
And what is up with the 'Czechoslovakia' line.  
 
Well, though it was well known, not everyone on Earth realized that there is no more "Czechoslovakia". It is now known as "The Czech Republic". During the campaign, John McCain referred to the country as Czechoslovakia. Olby had a field day with that, belittleing McCain and working overtime trying to humilate the man over the airwaves because of McCains mistake. How nice of Olby to humiliate and demean an American Hero, a U.S. Senator, a war veteran, and a true patriot! What Olby in his ignorance failed to realize, is that he too had recently referred to the country as Czechoslovakia, on several occasions. J$ provided the video tape evidence as proof. This was a huge blunder by Olby, and I am absolutely certain that he knew about it because there is no doubt he monitors Olbywatch both directly and indirectly. That man never apologized to McCain. In a related matter, Olby has also belittled and demeaned other war hero/veteran/patriots all in the name of his pursuit of a left wing agenda.
 
Ashley and your deal with ratings,  
 
Simple - I was silent about the ratings for a long time when I first began posting here, but I grew tired of those posters (one or two that still post here, others that I am sure still lurk and post under random names) used to preen like peacocks over what they wrongly perceived was Olby winning in "the demo" claiming that the overall was useless. They routinely manipulated the numbers to maximize Olby's third place while minimizing BORs first place. My posts about ratings are more for their benefit. What was the expression, "51 to dead"? Even Olby has used that "to dead" comment when talking about ratings, meaning that people over 51 were worthless, of no value. Disgusting.  
 
usually the Number one rated show on all of cable is usually Spongebob or Monday Night Raw, does that mean those shows are the best, well of course not. "And if my grandmother had wheels she'd be a wagon" ™Scotty.
 
It just shows that while ratings does equal money, it does not always mean quality.  
 
If you are saying that just because cable show A gets better ratings than cable show b, it does not mean that "A" is better than "B". Well, Of course quality is a matter of opinion, do you think that I (or anyone else here) do not know that? Do you think that it is yours what E=MC2 is to Einstein? There was a great movie released in 1980 called "Inside Moves" starring a cast of great character actors including David Morse and John Savage. It's one of my top 5 personal favorites of all movies I've ever seen. I think it should have been nominated for most academy award categories and should have won most of them. However, almost no one saw the movie.  
 
Ratings are important and it shapes what the news organizations do.  
 
a recent contract extention NBC has seen he has some value. It's their choice. But don't you think that if parent company GE goes to the government asking for our tax dollars to help run their business:
 
a) ALL employees of GE should comply with the $500 K salary limit set by Obama?
 
or
 
b) It is acceptable for the U.S. Taxpayer to subsidize Olby's $5M salary?
 
An issue for you. You repeatedly slam Drudge which very often is used by cable news hosts as a lead for finding show topics. You said to OS "your talking points from Drudge". I don't think you have a clue as to what the Drudge Report is. I'm curious, since his site consists completely of links to major newspapers, columnists, tabloid papers, and specific news stories and videos, exactly where are his "talking points" that you claim he offers? The current page of Drudge has a ton of links, and the archives are available, perhaps you can share with us specific information on this, rather than a smear.

Stupid ass, no moderator is able to comment on anyone's post until AFTER it has been approved. We cannot alter a pending post in any way.

Ashley, I have also seen from many leftists on many sites that The Drudge Report is just right wing talking points.
 
I never understood it and thought maybe there was a comment section that I couldn't find that they were complaining about.
 
Baba, what is it about Drudge that supports this by you: "talking points by Drudge"?
 
The only right wing pundit you mentioned that I follow closely is Rush Limbaugh. Your accusation regarding him is completely wrong. His show generally starts with an intro, followed by a quote or several quotes (read or DVD played) followed by his take liberally laced with hysterical very caustic humor.
 
I have heard him correct errors when he has made one but he doesn't do it that often. Rush Limbaugh is the Kinf of "hoisting his opponents on their own petard".

Liberal talk radio has of course failed miserably every time it has been tried, all the while watching it's conservative counterpart's success soar.

"Did they lie about how O'Reilly said US troops massacred German troops at Malmedy? Who was doing the lying there Dollar?"
 
Well of course that incident was sufficiently misrepresented enough to be close to a lie; if anyone wants to know the facts this is a good summary:

But I'm not sure what your point is. It's OK for the newshounds to falsify information because O'Reilly got the name of a magazine wrong? If your defense of newshound lying is "Look, that guy over there is doing it too", then I guess that makes sense to someone. And thank you for reading J$P.

First of all don't call me Haggis 
 
I did not call you Haggis, I said you "did a haggis".
 
and second there is a big advertisement saying to support Palin Pac, or the link to Glen Beck calling Obama a Communist Leader or making a big deal about Obama calling out Limbaugh. 
 
So what! There were also paid advertisements for CNN, Acai Berry, La Quinta, some online college, auto insurance, and a link to support Barack Obama. Olby could advertise there if he wanted. I doubt Drudge would care, it's how he makes his living....paid advertisements on his web site.
 
And most of the columnist that you link to are Pro republican. That I link to??? What columnists do I link to? If you meant to say Drudge, a large number of columnists are left wing.
 
So Ashley that is what I am talking about. Go ahead put your little spin on it, but if anyone in here is the master of ignoring the question it is you my friend. 
 
What question did I ignore? You asked me several today and i answered each one of them, while you have been asked three or four times now by two people now for to provide Drudge's talking points. All you came back with a list of paid advertisements. Perhaps one day you will answer the question.
 
Maybe we should start calling you little os.

This is a site about Cable News and Drudge is a diversion. J$ has since allowed other Drudge related posts to pass moderation, so I'm glad to discuss it as long as he deems it OK for his site.

Wasn't this guy also caught in a very delicate situation? This fairness doctrine is very bad. It would mean the government, controlled completely by one political party, would decide what they determined to be fair and would decide what radio stations could and could not program. Hitler would have approved of the fairness doctrine.

"There are some dumb [deleted] people over at Dollar's site. OS and Ashley are still claiming Ellen claimed Coulter was an economic expert by the title of her thread. Posted by: john t"
 
Do you suppose he really believes that? Or is he just trying to avoid the question: why did Ellen claim in her headline that Coulter was "trotted out" by "Fox" as "economic expert" when in fact nobody--not Hannity, not Coulter herself, and certainly not "Fox"--ever claimed she was an "economic expert"?
 
Is it that he doesn't want to admit Ellen's headline is at least misleading, or at worst a lie? Or does he simply lack the comprehension skills to understand the meaning of words?

I gave you in my opinion why I think Drudge leans, you can say what you want. You can say it is a compliments to be called os, which is ok, but Ashley, did you ever read some of his posts over at Newshounds, under his 400 names he used, he called for waterboarding of our president and questioned his race and his color. He made many personal attacks on people.Then he whines because he got it right back. Now before you get all pissy I am by all means not supporting Newshounds, I think some over there make great points but some go over the top and give liberals a bad name. He still trolls around over there.

FOX Trots Out Ann Coulter As Economic Expert To Criticize Stimulus Compromise
 
How else to explain the appearance of Ann “Boombox” Coulter on last night's (2/6/09) Hannity as an expert to discuss the Senate's compromise on the stimulus plan? 
=-=
 
The only person claiming that Ms. Coulter appeared in the guise of an economic "expert" is Ellen, and of course, echoed by some commenters.
 
The above is the 2nd sentece of the article. The article also contains the usual amount of inaccurate statements and Olbyesque mischaracterizations

Good lord, all I have done is ask you several times to back your claim that Drudge issues talking points. You failed to do that. I also asked you to point out any question of yours that I have ignored, you failed to do that. If I didn't respond to a specific question of yours, it's probably because I didn't see it. If you will notice, I have answered many questions from you today yet I still can't get an answer from you on Drudge's talking points. And as far as hiding, how is what I do here any different from you or anyone else. I use my real name, you don't. I put my email address on every post, that email address is my full name on a subscription email account, not one of the free yahoos or hotmails. I've also mentioned where I live and have discussed my family.

Frankly, it's hard to believe anything on that site, I stopped going there ages ago after I saw the crap that was there. In a post above, one of them admitted to editing OS's posts, so who knows if anything published there under his name is his own words, or even from him for that matter. Anyone can post using "Olby Sucks" as their handle. I went to the site on occasion to look at some of the articles referenced in J$ posts about the site. I saw death wishes for our former president. Even today they are permitting racial insults against a black man because of the color of his skin. One of the hounds came here recently and told us it was OK to do that. What you do is none of my business, but I have to ask, Why would you even want to play in that sewer?

"Ellen posted the ip addresses and it was proven it was the great os."
 
Maybe so. But based on years of experience I would want a more reliable source than that.
 
Maybe we can put a cap on this Drudge discussion? I agree with Baba that Drudge's website can lean right in some of the headlines he chooses to highlight--but then he will go and do the same thing that leans the other way. In the run-up to the election there were those articles about why is Drudge favoring Obama, like this one:
 
http://tinyurl.com/4xano7
 
Drudge is a libertarian/conservative himself, but I don't agree that his website has 'talking points' because that implies Drudge is producing content. Other than the occasional scoop, he basically just links to hot stories and is a one-stop shop for the top news sites and columnists on the web. Fox, MSNBC, CNN: they all monitor Drudge and when he makes something a headline, it gets noticed. But those headlines are 99% of them just links to someone else's news article.

If I can add my 2¢, it has a ton of relevance to her desire to impose the Fairness Doctrine.
 
1. Husbands career is liberal radio.
 
2. Wife pushes Fairness Doctrine.
 
3. If Fairness Doctrine passes, will force broadcasters to expand liberal radio.
 
4. Expanded liberal radio means more $$ for husband.
 
5. More $$ for husband is more $$ for wife.
 
6. And government is now in charge of what what you hear on the radio.
 
The end.

Would you rather have the audience decide what they want to listen to, or the government? BTW - Fairness Doctrine does not apply to cable.

From the link:
 
The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that required the holders of broadcast licenses to present controversial issues of public importance ... "The doctrine did not require equal time for opposing views but required that contrasting viewpoints be presented.[3]"
 
OK then. Child Predators on the internet is a controversial issue of public importance. When the topic comes up, I'll be glad to take the anti-child predator view point. Do you know of anyone who will take the pro viewpoint?

Watching a rerun of Hannity now on FNC. I'm not a big fan of how the "great american panel" is structured. One from the right and one from the left is OK I suppose, but the wild card falls flat for me.
 
I would prefer Hannity have 3 from the left instead, perhaps Beckel as a permanent fixture. One of Hannity vs. 3 liberals is fair. I think this would be more interesting and would eliminate much of the overtalking from members of the panel. The panel from the first Hannity was a disaster.

This one as I recall was pretty good. It was well balanced, with a good Dem, a good GOP, and Geraldo sort of the moderate leftist. It would be even better if Hannity didn't hog the mic so much.

With the occasional mentions of Jack Bauer on this site, I've decided to delve into the world of "24". I have to confess I never watched the show. When word of mouth got so strong and got me interested to watch it some time ago, I realized that I had missed so much, so I just stayed away. Well, no more, I just bought Season One and my wife and I will be watching a few eps this afternoon.

So, let me get this straight.
 
Folks on the left preach how we should love animals & protect them, and as some would say afford them more rights then humans.
 
But if you see or hear Hannity, it's okay to drop all pretense and destroy animal life.
 
Well everybody knows I don't like Hannity, but I just turn the dial. 
 
And my pets sleep well at night knowing that.

Baba, the only "point" you have given us twice is that Drudge should not have linked, b/c of his great coverage, to the Austrailian story and would we want it done to any of our family members.
 
Let me answer that and add another question to you.
 
1. I think both the Aussies and Drudge, although they had the constitutional and jouralistiic right to, were not in the moral right to do it.
 
2. How, exactly, does that proofer any proof or evidence of either right wing and/or talking points? I would say that releasing classified info is far more prevalent on the left than the right, but that is just my judgment.

However, as I pointed out earlier in this thread, despite the fact that I have answered so many questions from you, you went on to accuse me of avoiding your questions. Since then, I don't think you've answered any of the questions I've posed to you while I have continued to respond to your questions. As you have shown neither the courtesy or apparent competence to answer my questions, I am invoking a don't respond to children rule for myself. It means I can only respond to those who have both the physical and mental age of at least 18 Earth Years. This rule goes into effect when I hit publish.

GretaWire comments are not premoderated, so anything posted will go through until it is flagged. Whereas the newshounds specifically approve every comment before it appears--including the ones with demeaning racial slurs. Of course racial slur comments are nothing new for the hounds, but the fact that still appear even with premoderation takes it to a whole 'nuther level.

Yes some sort of moderation is obviously required. But GretaWire started out on its own. It was not part of the official Fox blogs. In fact Greta started it on her own without any involvement from FNC. As it became more popular it encouraged Fox to get other blogs going, and eventually GretaWire was incorporated into all the Fox blogs. But it's still a one-person operation. Greta does all the posts, all the moderation, etc. And her comment section is a free-fire zone that definitely gets dicey at times.
 
She has indicated that she wants to work out a better moderation system, and is trying community flagging of offensive posts. But I think we can assume that isn't doing the trick because of the hints Greta's been leaving that she's going to discontinue the blog entirely.

"So I get my talking points from Newshounds, ok show me proof of some sort of racial comment, and you know what I do agree with 25 percent of the posts made over their I just don't agree with the extreme liberal comments. "
 
I don't believe you intended it, but the way you wrote your response indicates that you do get your talking points. Regardless Babs, I don't think you get talking points from NH. You obviously did not understand what I meant with the use of the   icon when I gave you that advice. You also failed to grasp my use of the word "Seriously" which appeared in my follow-up post to your complaint on the matter.
 
But here is a question for you. Can you answer this one?
 
Why is it OK for Babs/MT to accuse a poster here of getting talking points from a website AND not OK for another poster here to accuse Babs/MT of getting talking points from a website?

Babs – I sense you remain focused on the Drudge Talking Points issue. I am not talking about that, I am talking about other questions I’ve posed to you the past few days which you have ignored even though you made a similar accusation against me. Not calling you any names, but your statement "I have answered your question as good as I want to. And if you closely read my posts the answers are there” is not the truth. 
 
The following is a small sampling of questions I asked you which you have not answered.
 
1 - 2/7 8:06 PM 
 
Responding to your criticism of me that I didn't reference past presidential administrations when I commented on the Obama cabinet.....
 
"Even if your claims that Hannity and Beck lying is true, what does this have to do with Olbermann? Are you saying that I must be "balanced" in my criticisms?" 
 
2 - 2/7 8:08 PM
Regarding Olby's contract....
 
It's their choice. But don't you think that if parent company GE goes to the government asking for our tax dollars to help run their business:
 
a) ALL employees of GE should comply with the $500 K salary limit set by Obama?
 
or
 
b) It is acceptable for the U.S. Taxpayer to subsidize Olby's $5M salary?

Regarding Babas 6:26 ...
 
So let's see if I got this right.
 
Babs feels that I must be balanced in his criticisms, while a review of his posts here show that he is not. 
 
Fox News should impose salary caps required for a federal bail out even though its parent company is not asking for a federal bail out. Does he have the guts to go to NH and post his sentiment that Olby should take an 80%+ pay cut?
 
He repeatedly has told me that I ignore his questions, yet he cannot show me one question of his I have ignored.
 
He is not capable of showing me where I referred to NPR. He changes his tune to I "insinuated", however I had only merely mentioned liberal radio. NPR does not purport to be liberal radio, but it's nice to see Babs get one right if he thinks that NPR is indeed liberal radio.
 
He is not capable of explaining the apparent hypocrisy of accusing others of getting talking points, while not being able to defend his apparent solicitation of talking points.
 
His comment "Obama won the election so HA" is quite self-revealing.

I repeat, read this site more closely. Wikipedia's Fox News pages are loaded with falsehoods. I did a lengthy analysis, and haven't seen much improvement when I've checked the since. You aren't I guess aware of the wiki wars, where corrections get immediately 'reverted'. I know of one person who seems to devote his life to putting smears of Fox News personnel into Wikipedia.
 
Sorry, but I'm not impressed with Wikipedia overall. And when it comes to FNC I'd rather consult the Farmer's Almanac. Oh I know they don't have anything about Fox News, but it's better to be uninformed than misinformed.

A couple of points Mr. Babybooey - Fred asked you a question, I had nothing to do with it, but since you got me involved, let me point out to you that the President did not take out anything, he has no constitutional authority to edit a bill while it is in the Senate. All he can do is approve, veto, or ignore it.
