RE: NYT pans Hannity
If you replace the word “Hannity” with the word “NPR” the review would be spot on. Hannity is a 1 hour opinion show show. NPR is a tax payer funded opinion network. The NYT has zero creditability in this area and makes no attempt to report straight news. If they were worried about balance a good place to start would be with a mirror. The hypocrisy on the left has no bounds. I’m still laughing about the absurdity of it all.

Totally off topic, but how about a new drinking game?

The article on Jim Cramer is totally off base. I admit I am a fan of his style, but I've also been watching him for over a year (as well as other financial shows) and he is more informative than the others I have seen. He has been talking caution all year. Does he say get out of stocks? No, but neither do most of the pundits. And, long term, I would not listed to that advice anyways. Unlike some day-trading shows, he has been talking about cash flow and dividends instead of 5-point pops. Plenty of really bright, informed people have lost money over the last year (and we're out about a trillion federal dollars to prove it).

The Factor
After years of lobbing soft balls at Keith Olbermann, the New York Slimes attacks Fox News for giving Sean Hannity an hour long show Combs free to attack Obama. Yet Olbermann gets to rant for an hour each night with no opposing view and claiming to be a "news program". Olbermann has also told documented lies about McCain and other republicans, what lies did Hannity tell? If bird cages didn't exist, the New York Times would not exist.

NY Times is now providing talking points to Obama's campagin spokesman. He read word for word the same dribble that was in the NY Times about Hannity's America.

Debate reactions from the "Fair and Balance" fan club?
Did I see the text message poll properly on Fox News - 88% for McCain?
Why does that 88% figure sound so familiar?

Not sure. But asking viewers their opinion of the debate does fit their, "We report, you decide," unlike what I just heard Chris Matthews say on post-debate Hard Ball, "Ha! Democrats 3 and 0 in the debates!"

Since everyone is understandably depressed after tonight, let me pose a question to Johnny Dollar.
I don't know anything about Hulu so I was wondering why the fact Hulu streams the debates of interest? What I mean is if all MSNBC, CNN, FOX and CSPAN are streaming what does Hulu do for me?

Might not help you, but it helps me. I don't have a tv service. I watch all my television over the internet. That's how I have watched all three debates.
