    Its exactly this kind of propaganda that turns people off.

    :lol: I learned my lesson quite well. It was just another thing to add to the list when Obama supported the RIAA the other day in a $650,000 file sharing case. But at this point, it no longer surprises me.

    However, come 2012, I will have my first opportunity to vote in the Presidential election and I will be voting.

    Now people know what to look for, it is easy to spot.

    They need a new tactic, because they just humiliated some of their best friends. It will be harder to do this in the future.

    When did Bush or his administration ever engage in such naked propaganda, junior?

    Difference between Talk radio and the rest of the press is a very clear one:

    They don't hide their bias and collusion.

    That's what makes them more honest by far.

    Also, AFAIK and seen, Conservatives don't have to rent mobs to protest or promise kickbacks to leaders to get them to do what they want.
