    Isn't it weird that Republicans are never the victim of one of these?

    Is he still on TV? I haven't watched an ABC/CBS/NBC news broadcast in...... well hell, I can't remember the last time I bothered watching one of those idiotic "nightly news" programs.

    I went to a UNLV dinner a few years ago and Tom Brokaw gave a speech. Somebody from the audience asked him what the funniest thing he ever saw during his years of reporting on politics. His reply was, "what, other than seeing Reagan elected president twice?". You coulda heard a pin drop - nobody laughed. I guess he forgot that Nevada is a GOP powerhouse. Plus, all those there had to have donated $5,000 or more to UNLV that year, so his audience was mostly small business owners from the community. Needless to say, the next year the dinner featured Barbara Bush as speaker.

    And the networks, CNN, NYT, TRIB, they don't know what is with their numbers. Can they recognize disengaged when it smacks them in the head? :smoke:

    Thanks to some carefully orchestrated leaks, a significant number of Americans have realized that Rather&Co. are nothing more than party hacks masquerading as objective journalists. As a result, they're losing the stranglehold they've enjoyed for the last 30+ years, along with their individual and collective asses.

    Hence, the cries for some sort of government-enforced "diversity".
