and how did that all work out?
same way it'll work out for Menendez.
as you right wing nuts know so well; sometimes, in the eye of public, how you win is more important than the winning.
you mean in the eye of the mainstream media who perenially carry the water for the Dems, no matter badly they behave.

if the watergate scandal had been commited by Democrats, NO ONE would have had to resign from the presidency, because the media would not have cared.

You might recall not one conservatve blamed the controversy Larry Craig found himself in on a "leftwing blog" but, instead, most encouraged him to step down.
Only your side blames everybody else.
This is another one of those road signs. Why don't you try reading it for a change? It might be important to keep you from getting lost.
reliable sources have to be reliable in the eyes of more than just those who visit the site.

history 101.....

Is the Daily Caller reporter's interruption of the president of the United States a sign of the deterioration of civility, the deterioration of the media in general, or the deterioration of respect for the office of the presidency?

All three of them, unfortunately. A reporter for the conservative website interrupted the president while he was giving a statement at the White House about immigration. The reporter, identified as Neil Munro, asked Obama why his policy favored "foreigners over American workers."

Where to start, with the infractions committed here? First of all, that's not really a question. It's an advocacy statement, and a misinformed one at that. Obama was announcing his decision not to enforce deportation efforts against certain, young undocumented immigrants who were brought here by their parents and hardly accountable for the fact that they are technically here illegally. And Munro might have learned more about the new policy if he had actually allowed the president to finish what he was saying.

And on what planet is it OK to interrupt the president of the United States? This is not aggressive journalism. It's bad manners and representative of egregiously low respect not only for the president but the office of the presidency. It's also clinically self-centered, since surely the reporter was not expecting an answer. He just wanted to play the role of the reporter willing to take on a powerful person. There was no motive here of getting at a critical truth for the reader. The motive was all about being aggressive and obnoxious for its own self-promoting sake.

Many people, in our increasingly ill-mannered world, have simply lost the ability to distinguish between speaking truth to power and just being a jerk. And unfortunately, being rude and being a jerk gets a lot of people attention in the media. The fact that the perpetrators are benefiting from negative attention doesn't even seem to bother them, and that's even more pathetic.

interesting that you bring that up.

if we added up all the ratings from the 'Liberal' cable news, how would that compare to one 'Conservative' cable news channel?

the minority can't carry enough water. whine, cry, throw your little fits, but until you start seeking solutions to your public image so you can increase your members, you be fked.

FOX is already showing signs of sliding to the center. some of you folks are going to be feeling very lonely.

Hey little fella, looks like you have a lot of time on your hands.
No job + no wife = unlimited topix stupidity.
I do believe Mrs. Tourette would like to know the answer to the first question. How about you helping her out and answering these questions:

Obviously, someone using the authority of the president issued orders to the AC-130 and Force Recon units to ignore their default orders and hang the Americans in Benghazi out to dry while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on real-time video.

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi while the real time video was being watched in the White House, and orders came from the White House for the AC-130s and the Force Recon Marine units to ignore their default orders to respond to an attack on the embassy in Libya?
(Thus, who in the White House gave the order for the Americans to be hung out to dry in Libya while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real time video; and why did Obama lie for two weeks trying to cover up the Al Qaeda terrorist attack on the United States when the real time video of the 7-hour battle that was watched in the White House proved the Obama explanation an obvious lie?)

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

So far, nobody on Earth has answered these questions.

I mean, seriously people...we have a president who clearly covered up a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 to win an election.
Hillary told Greta they KNEW there was danger in Benghazi long before the attack as well as the weapons that were used in the attack that a "mob" couldn't have gotten their hands on.
They "knew" this "before" the attack.
Yet this president sent the UN Amabassador to tell every liberal news outlet it was a video-spurred mob attack and stood in front of the UN himself 2 weeks later stating the same thing.
Are some of you illiterate and just can't read the signs?
If Obama had been hammered by a press doing its job instead of cheerleading, there is no way in hades he would have been elected for a second term.
Bah, non story, Libya is a dangerous place, who'd a thunk it? Fox News hype machine in overdrive.

Elections Have Consequences

The reaction to ObamaCare from U.S. small businesses has been mixed. Some entrepreneurs have expressed support for system changes, while others are indifferent, saying they won’t be affected. Meanwhile, some say they’ll be cutting headcount to avoid increased fees related to the new health-care policy.

And one entrepreneur in Utah is taking it one step further, and first laying off the workers who voted for President Obama.

Terry Lee, owner of Terry Lee Forensics, laid off two workers due to rising costs from the Affordable Care Act, and said he chose them due to their support for the president. The Salt Lake Tribune reports Lee let the two workers go because he “just knew” they were fans of the president, but acknowledged there were other issues with the former employees as well.

Utah is an “at-will” state, meaning both employers and workers can terminate their relationship with one another at any time without cause, unless otherwise stated. Political affiliation is not a protected class in the state, the Tribune reported.

In other news on the health-care policy front, Whole Foods Market co-CEO John Mackey regrets his recent comments that compared ObamaCare to fascism. Mackey released a statement to clear up his take on the matter.

“I made a poor word choice to describe our health-care system, which I definitely regret. The term fascism today stirs up too much negative emotion with its horrific associations in the 20th century. While I'm speaking as someone who works hard to offer health-care benefits to more than 73,000 team members, who actually vote on their overall benefits packages, I am very concerned about the uninsured and those with preexisting conditions,” Mackey wrote.

He said the U.S. should take a lesson on health-care policy from Switzerland.

“I believe that, if the goal is universal health care, our country would be far better served by combining free enterprise capitalism with a strong governmental safety net for our poorest citizens and those with preexisting conditions, helping everyone to be able to buy insurance. This is what Switzerland does and I think we would be much better off copying that system than where we are currently headed in the United States.

“This alternative allows individuals and businesses to innovate and develop customized solutions to health care where a ‘one size fits all approach’ fails. Creativity and progress are stifled when government regulations dictate the parameters of what health-care plans can be offered. Creative businesses, and the people who work them, can make something that has value for all stakeholders,” he said in the statement.
