    Why??? So we can marginalize Rush Limbaugh?

    Seems to me Limbaugh and POLITICS are pretty inseparable. Comments?

    Quite a stretch. How do you get from a "Media" subforum to marginalizing Rush Limbaugh?

    How about a "Biased Media" category so we can marginalize everybody that 'reports' news?

    None of us, I think, are really experts in the media, and so a forum devoted to it would undoubtably be mostly a forum about the polticization of the media.

    Basically, therefore, I agree.

    Actually, some of us did a stint in journalism. I know I'm not the only one.

    Of course it's political. Think about what you said though. Is the media supposed to be politically biased? Methinks not.

    At any rate, it's discussed enough, political or not. Actually, I should say the left spends more than enough time ranting about Rush and Fox.

    Ah come on Gunny... this category was made to hide yet another collasal failure by the left.


    I know you like to play it down the middle, but this is absurd. The left was getting their collective asses handed to them and for reasons known only to you, you felt it important to get this thread off the mainsteam table.

    It's cool... but don't pretend it's anything short of that.

    Dude, slowly set the bong down. Being careful to not knock over anything, stand up and step back from the table.

    But I confess. Here's the big secret: When a topic has enough interest and is discussed often enough, I see if another subforum will work with it as a means of quick navigation for users rather than searching this forum and that for discussions on the media.

    Inevitably, there are always those one or two people who have to come out and act as if this forum is a lesser forum than the one at the top of the page. Rather simplistic thinking if you ask me.

    It's a simple fact each and every forum cannot be the one on top in a vertical list. This is a message board, not a game of "King of the Mountain."
