    I've been saying for years that the "Rush Limbaugh school of debate" had done huge damage to political discourse in this country.

    it's the incivility in the way he says things. or are you so entrenched that you can't see it?

    by the by, there's never been anything reasonable, or truthful, about Rush. but do try again.

    Limbaugh has been a political commentator since 1987. Olberman has been doing it since 2003.

    Besides the fact that Limbaugh has 3 times the numbers of viewers Olberman has. But I'm sure its all his fault. After all, liberals are ruining the world, right?

    Why does none of the blame fall to the MSM - who are increasingly putting their own opinions and biases into the news...or politicians themselves, who have abandoned the notion of professionalism in politics and simply insult and demean their opponents publically at all times - during planned addresses and during off-the-cuff remarks to the MSM.

    Why place so much blame on one stupid man who comments on politics that the majority of the nation does not listen to...and so little on those actually MAKING the political decisions...and the media that is supposed to be reporting it in an unbiased way?

    Because while the people are bitching about how the MSM is so biased and whining about it, they tend to turn to the parts of the MSM which are extra biased...that is the ends of either one of the spectrums. The middle outlets are losing their audience because nobody wants balanced news anymore.

    What a joke, there was no middle before Fox and they are closest to it. The rest are so far left as to be laughable.

    I repeat.... provide examples of NEWS from FOX that is slanted. You all failed in the last three thread about this, maybe this will be the charm for you? Maybe this tme you can actually provide REAL news programs from Fox that are biased?

    You keep making the claim, back it up.
