O'Reilly: "Nobody cares about the Maryland wiretap law"
Reported by Julie - September 24, 2009 - 27 comments  
This idiot, and I say that with all due respect to idiots, actually believes O'Reilly doesn't care aboout the law. She seems to think that his innoucous remark means that he disrespects laws he doesn't like.
How in the world could she come to such an ignorant conclusion.
Anyone wathcing the program could figure out in about 3 seconds what O'reilly was talking about.
I'm guessing that very few people even knew the law existed until it was brought up in the Acorn case.
Disclosure....I was aware of the law because I used to live in Maryland. I called a lawyer friend in Baltimore about this case. She said Acorn has no shot at winning this thing. Number one because of the way the law is written regarding privacy. Number two because of the disclosure rules.
However, I am sure that the Heinous, Hideous Hens of Houndland will continue to wallow in the mud to keep this alive.

Oh my God! How DARE he call Tina Fey a pinhead. The "key finding" in that report is that FNC is the most trusted. BOR reported that.

Just a fun FYI.
Rush mentioned Megyn's baby and his first caller after was a big Megyn fan and they had a very complimentary discussion about her.

Tell The Real Story About Glenn Beck
Reported by Ellen - Fri 1:49 PM
ColorOfChange is asking people familiar with Beck's racial fearmongering to write letters to the editors of their local papers asking them to call out the extremist hate mongering of Glenn Beck. Click here to participate.
Didn't the News Poodles get their brown stained thongs all wet when someone at Fox suggested that people send them examples of media bias?
So much ignorance. So little time.

Well she's stupid enough to be a hound, but since she doesn't watch FNC so we don't have to, then I think no...not a regular.

MM seems shocked that fox news is being fair and balanced:
Fox military analyst undercuts Hannity's, Krauthammer's attacks on Obama over Afghanistan
that is what a F & B network does.

That is great stuff about the gym and Fox News.  
That woman's remarks are typical of a liberal.

Blackflon | Homepage | 09.25.09 - 5:59 pm |
Blackfon what really makes this interesting is the fact that this happened in Manhattan. Where the news cable lineup is.
CNN: Channel 78 (but, had channel 12 for years, just switched in July)
FNC: Channel 44
MSNBC: Channel 14
And we are talking Columbia Unversity. Guess even the folks at Columbia can take just so much liberal drivel.

I first read this I was thinking Columbia University, a whoops!
Columbia Maryland was planned as a liberal community, but in later years it seems that Capitalism has been making inroads. In 2008 ranked 8th on the best place's to live. (Money Magazine)

A nostalgic trip back in time when CNN was the Clinton News Network:
CNN Exults in Clinton Kiss: 'They're Off, Separately, to Change the World'
First grab a big handful of kleenex and then click on the video. Vintage CNN will bring you back to a kinder gentler time.

That was so touching, Grammie. The passionate love was truly felt in that .3 second cheek peck.

So true, FF.
I was halfway able to choke back my tears until the piece ended with this Gold Plated CNN Vintage comment that they were both:
"off, separately, to change the world."  
Barry and Michelle's great love just can't compete with the real pros!
