    Gutter journalism at its very best. You get the media you deserve... you accept bullshit, you get bullshit.

    The Republicans are keeping as tight as I have seen for such a long time. This tells me that they have some fine ammunition to let out when they usually do let it out.

    On the campaign trail, not now. I think that the Democrats are going to be very surprised on this election cycle.

    I think something big is coming out... Big business aside :lol:

    I thought maybe it was because of the internet but they only looked at a few major outlets for each study so....yeah...the double standard is blatant.

    When I first came to this board, I tried to write a comparison of conservatives and liberals, and one of the conclusion that I came to was the two operate via different intellectual modes...

    It can be summarized in this way: for liberals, feeling passes for knowing.
    With this worldview, neither consistency nor experience play a primary role. So, while your OP is magnificent, and would leave conservatives nodding their heads, liberals will look at the summary and shrug their shoulders and say "so?"

    We will never convince them using logic, nor history. Being even handed means not a whit to the Left.
    On the one hand, a mere 20% report themselves as liberals, vs. twice that as conservative.

    On the other hand, that 20% controls the methods of dissemination of information, as in the media outlets you note.

    "...the double standard..."

    What better explanation for the brightest star in the Democrat firmament being a lying, womanizing, rapist?

    This just proves as I have contended for years that the media has gotten more enquireristic.
    It has done this to attract increasing stupid viewers. Purely a capitalistic venture.

    How many women did Clinton pay $45,000.00 and $40,000.00 to?
