Jeffjoe – I believe it is because liberalism makes money. Liberals love to hear their views voiced and conservatives love to hear anything they can argue and attempt to refute. In the early stages of ‘yellow journalism’ media moguls learned that the populace enjoyed hearing stories of sensationalism. The easiest target for sensationalism in this country is the government – hence the attacks on the present administration and past administrations. As a republican I do believe that FoxNews is more right-winged, both MSNBC and CNN I see as left-winged. As a side note – I believe I must be the only republican on this board! However, finding a military member, other than Wesley Clark (and 2 year service man John Kerry), who is not a republican is hard to do!Jason
My dad (a 30 year veteran) is a huge democrat. So that theory isn't quite true.
That's right Giraffe....we're just going around the playground picking fights aren't we? Maybe you were in South America saving the dung beetle on September 11th, but I remember it all too well. The fight was started here. We're finishing it there. Whether you hide your liberal head under a rock or not, there is a war. We are in the middle of it and I would rather it be fought in the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan than in the streets of Brooklyn or the suburbs of South Carolina. No liberal bias? Liberal bias in US politic discourse refers to slanting and spiking of news stories to promote a liberal agenda and thwart conservative values. To say that this is not the mainstream in today's media is like standing on a tree stump and demanding that a tree never grew there. It's absurd to say the least.
