To avoid confusion, we're talking about Jeff Rossen with two S's and not James Rosen with one S. This shows how little I watch the networks or local news. I didn't even know Jeff Rossen was gone from WABC. I only watch the local news for weather or sports; especially sports.
I hope there isn't any feud between BOR and Gawker, which he has refused to name on the air. I think the best measure would be to ignore them. Don't take the bait...please.

Great cable TV last night, did anyone see O’Reilly blow away Jon Meacham the editor of Newsweek? Talk about no spin zone. He nailed him. Bill had the facts and numbers proving the” News “magazines severe left wing bias and Meacham was near speechless. Meacham, almost embarrassed, had the usual denial with very little facts for any kind of credible rebuttal. Now for the NYT! Credibility continues to dwindle in the MSM.

Disagree that BOR blew away Newsweek's Meacham. Bill made a lot out of the fact that there were x number of lib columnists and y number of conservative columnists, no idea how he defined them, and hung his arguments on that and the number of Obama covers compared to the number of McCain covers. When Meacham tried to say anything, Bill cut him off quickly. O'Reilly might have won on points, but it was not a knockout.

PP 's presence is certainly unfortunate, and it most unwelcome. But, you don't have to BYOB to recognize a set up. In the early part of the previous century, everyone figured out that Notre Dame had emptied the coal mines to field a winning football team. It was patently obvious, as is PP.
 
As for the reasons moderation was implemented, Jeff, my own sense is it is two-fold:
 
(1) A growing presence of moderates, progressives and libeals whose mere presence shook the philosophical and political fondations of this site and FNC, and against him merely a handful of the charter members could make a congent counter-argument. For that I tip my hat to Ashley, Cecelia, FF, vstol, and, on occassion, Sharon.
 
(2) You.

Interesting, Pinnochio... I was just reading an article on that.
 
Here's the part you might be interested in (or chose to ignore because it disagrees with you):
 
QUOTE:
Assuredly McCain isn't comfortable talking about this -- and the McCain campaign discouraged me from writing about this -- but the reason the aged Arizonan doesn't use a computer or send e-mail is because of his war wounds.
 
I realize some of the nastier liberals in the blogosphere will see this as McCain once again "playing the POW card," but it's simply a fact: typing on a regular keyboard for any sustained period of time bothers McCain physically.  
 
He can type, he occasionally does type, but in general, the injuries he sustained as a POW -- ones that make it impossible for him to raise his arms high enough to comb his hair -- mean that small tasks make his shoulders ache, so he tries to avoid any repetitive exercise.
 
Again, it's not that he can't type, he just by habit, avoids when he can, repetitive exercise involving his arms. He does if he has to, as with handshaking or autographs.

Shep: “What’s Wrong With Gretchen Today?
Today Shepard Smith gave Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson about as much respect as Jackie Mason generally does. In fact, he dissed the show itself for its lengthy coverage of the JFK JetBlue drama about the hand grenade paperweights without checking out whether they were real first. As he walked onto the set, he derisively stated, “I, too, have a bomb…a bottle of water for you that actually contains human poisons.” He complained, “We shut down a whole airport for a couple of paperweights: are you kidding me?”
 
Innocently, Gretch asked, “Isn’t that better than if they actually were the real thing and something happened?” Shep sarcastically replied, “It’s better if everybody looked into it first, don’t you think?” Gretchen answered, “I’d rather have people err on the side of being protected.” Shep derisively responded, “Yes, Gretchen, we all would.”
 
Later, while promoting The Strategy Room, Shep said, “We are very excited….for nine hours without commercial interruption…we’ll talk about politics, Wall Street, and everything non-stop.” He added, “You can do anything, you can take your clothes off if you want: Nobody’s watching!” Gretch interjected, “Yes, they are!” Dismissively, Shep replied, “Oh, come on Gretchen: please relax!”
 
Gretch said, “I don’t think I’m going to say anything else ’cause Shep is really angry at me.” Shep groused, “What is wrong with you?” Of F&F co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, he later asked, “What’s wrong with Gretchen today?” Then she gamely queried, “What’s wrong with you?
 
At the end of the segment, trying to save face, Gretch sweetly stated, “I need to make up with Shep today before he leaves.” She got up and sat between Shep and Steve Doocy and put her arm around Shep. He inquired again, “What is wrong with you? Does that mean I get some touchy?” Then he said, “Maybe, I don’t know the rules of the program [F&FW] because I don’t watch it.”
 
Poor Gretch: she may have been Miss America but Shep was not Mr. Congen

Now, Joe Biden might have done 80 interviews, and let's give the little math challanged clown that.
 
The real question is, How many cohearent ones has he done?
 
Zero!
 
Case in point last night on Katie's show.
 
"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed," Biden told Couric. "He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"
 
And I'm sure that was broadcast over all 57 states, right?

I read your article of 10:17 PP, and saw no proof that Palin forced rape victims to pay for the kits. I saw that she fired one chief and hired another. The one she fired had the department cover the cost of forensics and one she hired cut the cost from the budget. NOWHERE does it state that the cost would fall to victims personally. You could argue that passing the cost onto insurance companies hurts the rest of insurers; you can't argue that any victim was hounded for payment. Someone has to pay for the cost, certainly not the victim. The rapist should be the first in line. But there is NO PROOF that any victim was ever charged for the kit.
 
This the kind of crap you guys have to resort to:
 
An article in the St. Petersberg Times, quotes Cichon as having said, “I can't imagine having a black president . . .”
 
In a phone interview Saturday, Sandra Cichon of Spring Hill, Florida denied that she ever spoke with any pollster or reporter concerning Obama or about anything regarding race. Cichon was taken by surprise when phoned by this reporter, and she was not aware that she had been quoted in any newspaper.

The New York Times adds that reporters were let in for the preliminary part of Palin's meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Here's what they got:
 
When Gov. Sarah Palin sat down with President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan on Tuesday afternoon, the polite preliminaries to their conversation centered around children, as Mr. Karzai spoke of the birth of his first child last year.
 
"What is his name?" Ms. Palin was heard to ask, as she met with Mr. Karzai in the suite of a midtown hotel, according to a pool report.
 
"Mirwais," Mr. Karzai replied. "Mirwais, which means, 'The Light of the House.'"
 
"Oh nice," Palin responded.
 
"He is the only one we have," Mr. Karzai said.
 
Then the pool of journalists was escorted out, and the meeting began.

Thanks for caring so much. 
 
As usual, you didn't address the points. You can't answer the question of proof of women having to pay for rape kits. 
 
You are of the persuasion that a vote against Obama is a vote for racism. Very intellectual. I saw an African American spokesman for the Obama camp discuss the issue intelligently on Hardball. There is a percentage of the population who will not vote for Obama strictly because of race. These people are not reachable. Obama is going after the reachable votes. 
 
The fact that the polls pretty much mirror the polls in 2004 shows that racism is not the core issue, but that Americans remain divided on key issues.
 
If McCain wins the election, I give him the benefit of the doubt that he will serve more than a heartbeat of his term. Every day that Palin serves as VP is more executive experience that Obama would have on day 1. 
 
"Please, go pull the straight ticket lever on election day, as I am sure you always do,..."
 
Nice! Way to debate the issues!
 
" but don't engage in this tacky and tawdry conduct. It really belitles you."
 
A Florida newspaper falsely claims that a woman made a racist comment. I would define that as tawdry behavior, but keep on defending it.

WASHINGTON - Senator John McCain, in a provocative and politically risky speech, sharply criticized leaders of the religious right on Monday as ''agents of intolerance'' allied to his rival, Governor George W. Bush, and denounced what he said were the tactics of ''division and slander.'' 
Specifically, Mr. McCain singled out the evangelists Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell as ''corrupting influences on religion and politics'' and said parts of the religious right were divisive and even un-American.

The Arizona Republic - January 17, 1995
 
McCain was one of the "Keating Five," congressmen investigated on ethics charges for strenuously helping convicted racketeer Charles Keating after he gave them large campaign contributions and vacation trips.
Charles Keating was convicted of racketeering and fraud in both state and federal court after his Lincoln Savings & Loan collapsed, costing the taxpayers $3.4 billion. His convictions were overturned on technicalities.
McCain intervened on behalf of Charles Keating after Keating gave McCain at least $112,00 in contributions. In the mid-1980s, McCain made at least nine trips on Keating's airplanes, and three of those were to Keating's luxurious retreat in the Bahamas. McCain's wife and father-in-law also were the largest investors (at $350,000) in a Keating shopping center; the Phoenix New Times called it a "sweetheart deal."
 
Is this the change he has been talking about.

Hey Gilligan - you've said on at least 10 occasions over the past few weeks that you are leaving here for good, yet you always come back. Do you love us that much???
 
By the way, how is your website coming, the one you said you would have open by now?

Phoenix New Times, March 25, 1999 -- Two former POWs, Air Force Colonels Ted Guy and Gordon "Swede" Larson, said in a feature article that while they could not guarantee that McCain was not physically harmed, they doubted it. Both Guy and Larson were senior ranking officers (SRO's) in McCain's POW camp at a time he claims he was in solitary confinement and being tortured.
Larson told the New Times, "Between the two of us, it's our belief, and to the best of our knowledge, that no prisoner was beaten or harmed physically in that camp [known as 'The Plantation'].
"My only contention with the McCain deal is that while he was at The Plantation, to the best of my knowledge and Ted's knowledge, he was not physically abused in any way. No one was in that camp. It was the camp that people were released from."

Gilligan, do you feel that Obama and Biden are too cowardly to repeat what you said in this post, to the American Public?

Gilligan - according to you, McCain has admitted divulging military information to his captors. Why don't the Gaffe Twins report this???

So Gilligan - what you are saying then is that both Obama and Biden are lying when they have said that McCain is a war hero who served his country with honor?
 
Was Biden also lying when he said Obama was clean?

And Obama is way cleaner that McLamo

Aeris, you mentioned Mike Malloy being on CNN the last time you were commenting here.
 
I watched it, Mike Malloy was completely retarded. When you stop licking his ass, you might want to reevaluate your vapid misconception of his greatness.

I was unaware you asked me any questions Barbie. Could you repeat?
 
Oh, and one more question. If McCain is as bad as you say he is, why did Joe Biden suggest that he run with John Kerry (as his VP) in 2004? He said he was a strong leader, and would help unify the country.

I still don't understand why I should know who Mike Malloy is. Is he popular? Does he get big ratings? Best sellers? On a major network? Or just "some guy?"

I never heard of him until Aeris started propping his creds. Probably will never hear of Mike Malloy again. Loser following a loser.

Sharon:
 
Please stop. You are humiliating yourself defending this demonstrably unqualified woman and simultaneously defending racists and racism. How could this possibly be worth your dignity and integrity? Please, go pull the straight ticket lever on election day, as I am sure you always do, but don't engage in this tacky and tawdry conduct. It really belitles you.

Now there's a "reasonable and informed" rebuttal to Sharon that shakes the philosophical and foundations of this site and of FNC.
 
Wheww....we're just reeling from going through THAT and PP's intellectual challenges.

Agreed. I'm guessing that's why mark didn't hang around. She knew she wouldn't be able to control herself. Kind of like an alcoholic at an open bar.

Mike Malloy has the dark discontented and envious soul of the most hateful little guerrilla fighter, attempting to disguise his control freak fascism in a costume of democratic socialism... but he's got a some truth going on in the Wall Street bailout.
 
The term "welfare queen" should never be uttered in this country again. The massive redistribution of public income that we've been forced to contemplate now, has turned all such gripes about entitlement programs and the like into the pettiest and most obtuse sort of complaints.
