Do you think his opinion is a little biased?
The OPINION piece is written by James Taylor. He's heavily involved with the Heartland Institute whom we've already covered.
They receive their funding from "The Heartland Institute does not disclose its funding sources. According to its brochures, Heartland receives money from approximately 1,600 individuals and organizations, and no single corporate entity donates more than 5% of the operating budget,[38] although the figure for individual donors can be much higher, with a single anonymous donor providing $4.6 million in 2008, and $979,000 in 2011, accounting for 20% of Heartland's overall budget, according to reports of a leaked fundraising plan."
A SINGLE ANONYMOUS DONOR gave them 4.6 MILLION. Nobody gives away 4.6 million unless they have an interest at stake. Maybe people like ones below:
MediaTransparency reported that Heartland received funding from politically conservative foundations such as the Castle Rock Foundation, the Sarah Scaife Foundation, the John M. Olin Foundation, and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.[41] In 2011, the Institute received $25,000 from the Charles G. Koch Foundation.[14] The Charles Koch Foundation states that the contribution was "$25,000 to the Heartland Institute in 2011 for research in healthcare, not climate change, and this was the first and only donation the Foundation made to the institute in more than a decade".[42]
Oil and gas companies have contributed to the Heartland Institute, including over $600,000 from ExxonMobil between 1998 and 2005.[43] Greenpeace reported that Heartland received almost $800,000 from ExxonMobil.
In February 2012 environmentalist scientist and president of the Pacific Institute, Peter Gleick, obtained internal Heartland Institute documents and divulged them, together with an additional document he later claimed to have received from an unknown source, to public websites.[48] The documents contained the 2012 Heartland budget, a fundraising plan and board materials.[49] The documents disclosed the names of a number of donors to the institute including the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation, tobacco companies Altria and Reynolds American, drug firms GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and Eli Lilly,

Of course the article is biased. Since anything that doesn't agree with you must be biased and written by someone from some organization that you don't approve of. You won't even give a nod of approval to the Russian scientist that say the earths temperature hasn't risen in 12 years and that it is getting colder. Now that one really puzzles me. Just because people that don't go along with the global warming crowd are being crucified, just as you and every liberal on here have done me. Who gives a damn who wrote it? I could say the same thing about every piece of propaganda that you send to me. The idea is government sponsored studies being paid for by the government and driven by government politics. If you want to keep your job then you had better march in step with the rest of you so called academic elitist. So don't give me any more arguments about it. Even the article explains in it that the global warming crowd use the same excuses and the same tactics that you are using at this moment. All of you must have been taught to say and do the same things to everyone that doesn't think or believe as you. The article looked as if they knew you and had been reading all of your post. After reading the article it became clear that you have been tutored. We must say and think as you do or we will be put out in the cold.The article nailed you dead on didn't it? LOL

Again: These are not scientists views you're reading. These are paid lobbyists and propaganda artists for big-oil and big-coal.

In a study by William Trenchant of Federal Elections Commission records for donations by journalists, he found that 235 of 255 studied sent donations to Democrat candidates. Bill Dedman of MSNBC conducted a similar study that found that 125 of 143 journalists he studied donated money to Democrat candidates. Given that it can be reasonably inferred that 87-92% of journalists are Democrat, I would say your statement #3 that "Some reporters sometimes say stupid things on live TV." is a virtual certainty. Congratulations.(#1 would be a close second.)

I don't think you quite get what is meant by the word "biased". What's important is that information originates from uncompromised, qualified, and intellectually honest sources. In other words, it matters whether or not they are telling the truth or lying to gain or promote a cause.

Have you read anything I posted to you? I haven't been "tutored in propaganda" as you claim. However, the people who write the stuff you're reading HAVE BEEN. They're professionals. They're paid millions to be very good at it. They have staffs and researches and giant budgets and lawyers behind them. That's what they do, write propaganda. Get it? Do you really? They are in a building somewhere right now writing highly sophisticated crap to get you to believe it, and they are being paid millions by somebody to get you to believe it.

These are the same people who were paid to tell you that cigarette smoking wasn't bad. Phillip Morris paid exactly these people to do exactly that. Why did Phillip Morris pay millions to them to write fake press? BECAUSE THEY HAD BILLIONS AT STAKE. They are literally stealing your brain with lies so they can profit from you.

I can't say it anymore clearly than that. Go on and continue to be used if you like.

Obama is a world class liar, so I doubt he would be disappointed. Can you believe what that lying dog said about Benghazi today???? The libs give his lying self a pass every single time. That is why the libs are known as lock step brainless Obamabots.

"When asked about second term failures, President Barack Obama responded by saying, "Maybe I should just pack up and go home. Golly.""
Poor old Obama, doncha feel sorry for him.
But then says this...
"Obama pledges renewed push on Gitmo."
"I'm going to go back at this," he said Tuesday. "I've asked my team to review everything that's currently being done in Guantanamo, everything that we can do administratively, and I'm going to re-engage with Congress to try to make the case that this is not something that's in the best interests of the American people."
And this is the same administration that allowed miranda rights to the boston bomber before the 48 hours was up they had promised to let the FBI question him.
And he wonders why he has a failed Presidency.
I say let Biden take over.
He is such a liar. I suppose you also heard his denial about knowing anything in regard to stopping
certain people from testifying in regard to Benghazi. I hope the press doesn't let it die. Obama could get blistered over that. He NEEDS to get blistered. He is such a conniving, lying dog. Libs are worthless for supporting such a disgusting pig.

Great post.

These Right Wing Wackos, even as their corporate masters and the uberrich financially and environmentally rape the country, are so anxious to identify with their masters, that they have to accept anything they are told to believe.

It reminds me of when management would negotiate with our police union, always explaining that it would be good if the salary distribution made the chief rich, at the officers' expense, because, after all, anyone could get to be chief.

Scary enough, many otherwise rational officers actually believed that of hundreds of officers, they were destined to be chief, and so screw their fellow officers, it's every man for himself.

These guys would sell their fellow officers our in a heartbeat to get ahead - what irony it was when management sold them out - as inevitably happened - nobody likes scabs- then, like Right Wingers do today, they came running to the rest of us for protection.

Yep, Right Wingers, its smart to put your faith in Goldman Sachs, G.E., Walmart, Exxon Mobil, British Pet., Pfizer, Hedge Function managers, and their hired mouth pieces, after all, they've proven how much they care about the little guy.

Yep, we should sell them yellow armbands with KAPO stenciled in black - after all, what "Libtard" doesn't believe that "work shall set you free".
