    Which subject gets the most attention by the media? You got it, senator sex trumps nuclear holocaust. Especially when it's a Republican sex scandal, no matter that it happened months ago.

    The foreign news outlets are full of reports on the latest news about Iran and Ahmadinejad. To me this is just another huge example of U.S. media bias and irresponsibility. It serves the Dums to have any war coverage diverted and buried under a sex scandal. They will do anything to minimize it. There's almost a blackout on this topic in U.S. news.

    Stupid news always trumps real news. Just watch CNN or Fox News if you don't believe me. :B

    I'm not saying there should be no press on a Senator's sex scandal. On the contrary. A Senator's character is very important, as well as a President's. In fact, I think the guy is a slimeball as well as too stupid to be a Senator and anyone who lies in dealing with the law should resign immediately. Don't you agree?

    However, impending nuclear holocaust is a much more serious subject don't you think?... and yet hardly anyone is broadcasting in the U.S. about about the latest developments...not a surprise given the liberal bias of the media...not to mention their penchant for sexual topics. All you hear about is tapping toes in a bathroom while the nutjob in Iran jacks up his threats. I find that quite irresponsible on the part of the media.

    Iran is a threat, BUT I agree, the rhetoric is old and won't play, not because they are busy railroading a Republican, but because no one in the Press cares.

    Short of a Nuclear strike the left will pooh pooh any claim of a threat from Iran, no matter how well documented or how many nations concur. And after a strike they will be busy explaining how Iran was just defending themselves or a rogue general did it or..... pick some excuse, I mean it is just Jews they plan to kill for now and a bunch of Arabs, Liberals do not care about those people.
