    On another thread, someone posted about the story of Fast & Furious and which networks carried the story tonight. Subpoenas will be coming out this week to administration officials. Every main network and cable network was listed. No network except Fox carried the story.

    It wasn't that the F & F wasn't the lead story, it wasn't mentioned at all. Newspapers are guilty of the same thing. Is it too much to ask the actual news organizations carry the news, unbiased? Every station can have their programs where TH has their guests and attempt top sway the viewers on way or another, but leave the news to the facts and include the entire news.

    The media isn't even journalism any longer.

    All I know is that some of these not-a-chance-of-winning-the-POTUS candidates are making an KILLING off of people's enthusiasm.

    Yes sir, they're using the media

    I think you guys should read up on our history. The media was never good and always biased in some form. Seriously, Jefferson cosigned a joke of a paper... it has always been awful since our founding
