Talk about ironic. Look and listen to that editing job. It screams fear and hype to me. But then again, I walked into this thread knowing it would be a masturbation fest.

Too bad facts are killing the progressive movement. I think you libs need to keep trying to suppress free speech, because if you don't, people like Beck are going to render your entire ideology dead in the water... Hurry now, you haven't much time left.

Don't cry too much on Tuesday, because you'll need those tears in the elections to come... Boy will you need them.

LOL the Free speech line.

You know, Hitler used the same line I bet, when he set up his propaganda ministry so he could form the Nazi message. Yes I used the Nazi card ...and it is very fitting. Once lies and propaganda start to become "fact" like it it does daily on Fox News (and did for Hitler), then your society is heading down a very very very dangerous road where ultimately the free speech and liberties you so cherish will disappear very fast... when only the view of one organisation (in this case Fox News/RNC) is the valid and acceptable view. Those against that view will be marginalised, ridiculed (as we saw with the Dixie Chicks) and when it gets bad the death threats and "citizen arrests" will become common place. Then soon after it will be the government doing the arresting since the liars and fact twisters by this time will have gained power by brainwash.. much like Hitler.

Oh sweet Jesus what a selective memory and a selective judgement.

I do not view or read content from Media Matters or Newsbusters. They are almost as bad as WND. Medial Matters makes me, as a liberal, embarrassed.

Perhaps you should be embarrassed commenting on something you haven't watched. :roll:

Usually, that would be the case. However, this was still filled with idiocy.

I liked the clip of all of the 24/7 news stations that they showed at the Rally itself better.

Fox News is no worse, or any better, than MSNBC or CNN.

I agree with one thing Stewart said at the rally. The pundits are not the reason why America is in the difficult situation it is today, but they are certainly not helping America get out of it. Amplifying everything leads to everyone hearing nothing.

:slapme: I think the spin doctors got to this one. You can cut the 'hate-filled' jabbering with a knife. Dear Lord. Do you understand how foolish what you said is? Youre not talking like a Pro-American. Youre talking like a Pro-Republican, ANTI-American.
This is one of the largest reasons why Im for a 3rd party. This child-like talk and hatred that the republican salesmen like Hannity dish out is disgusting. He is one of the worst Americans around.
