    I'm watching Meet the Press with David Gregory.

    I'm amazed watching him grill Harry Reid. Attacking, Attacking, Attacking.

    But then when Lindsey Grahame and other Republicans are on, no interruptions, all softball questions and he lets them go on endlessly with their message.

    MSNBC can have "opinion anchors" like Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz, but when it comes to the "serious" interviews, like with David Gregory, it's all "conservative" and "fluff". Unless you're a Democrat.

    And the right is always screaming about "liberal bias". I just don't see it.

    Because there isn’t any.

    Remember also when the media report the truth and facts, that’s considered ‘liberal bias’ by the right.

    That's because reality has a well-known liberal bias, which in turn is because the right is not fact-based.

    One show is evidence that there is no 'liberal bias' in the media.

    That shows such a lack of understanding of the word 'evidence' that it is laughable... particularly when the one making the claim also claims to value education, science, and academic thought.

    It is equivalent to me providing a link to Rachel Madcow ranting a bunch of lies about the GOP and calling that proof that there is a liberal bias across the media.

    I'd be most amused to see what you consider a "grilling", Deanie. Care to provide a link? The day that MSNBC attacks progressives and coddles conservatives is the day that pigs fly.

    There is not enough time in the day for me to disprove this stupid ass thread (nothing new for rdumb).

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day :cuckoo:

    It's been a couple of weeks since you last asked that question. Haven't found out yet?

    Your perceptions are horribly skewed. You think The Onion is a legitimate news source, and a musical by the South Park guys is a serious documentary.

    So, I expect your idea of Gregory "attacking" Reid was something like this in reality:

    Gregory: So, Senator Reid -- just exactly how awesome ARE you?! The American people have a right to know!!

    Oddly enough, it's only liberals that "know" this.

    Sheer coincidence, I'm sure. :lol:
