    Thank you NBC we are much obliged. Of course the "Big" winner is Andrew Breitbart, the Bigs and Breitbart TV. But really aren't we all winners here?

    Hiring a jive racist con artist must look like an attractive way to boost rating when you're in the basement looking up.

    Sorry, but this clears up any idea that I had of the left being able to see reason.

    What exactly does it have to do with "the left?" Like, what exactly, aside from the station itself having a political bias their way.

    I'm sure you are familiar with Al, so I don't think I need to explain him.

    For mnsbc to pick him or anyone, they have to run the person through a series of tests to see if they want in to rep them, some times having them as guest hosts, as Al was, to see if they can get positive feed back.

    clearly the left gave them the positive feed back they wanted.

    Al is what he is and he got positive feed back. That alone, shows that the left is not capable of wanting to see reason, since he's not a reasonable person. not the slightest bit.

    I see pols that are off thier rockers and think "well, it's just the people there, that keep re-electing them." Al is an international star and his veiws are well known by all people. so there's no reasonable excuse for wanting him on TV.

    If he flops, my veiws will change.

    And the right gives Beck, Hannity positive feedbac k to a much higher degree (ratings), but that doesn't make you say "the right has no ability to reason!," because you're not a fair-minded individual (politically).

    Reaserch, actual research, puts FOX nearer to the center than any TV outlet, including CNN.

    Fact, not opinion or a poll.

    Fox is not near the center, dude. I'm sorry, but that's deluded.

    They have the "balance" in their research by having persons (Guests) on their shows so-in order to debate, but their hosts themselves and the balance of the COVERAGE is so blatantly right wing it's ridiculous.

    But nevertheless, regardless of that, you didn't address the point.

    If the "left" is shown "unreasonable" by Sharpton getting this job, then the "right" is equally or more-so (ratings) unreasonable for the schmucks they have on TV and radio. But you'd like to ignore that slender bit, just for the sake of another partisan post.

    I don't have any issues with you at all, but it's pretty evident that you're conveniently seeing things through a narrow lense.
