Well, it was on Fox News about an hour ago. But here is a George Soros approved CBS site;
Voting Records Raise Questions After Mummified Body Found March 11, 2014
PONTIAC (WWJ/AP)- Voting records are raising questions amid an investigation into the discovery of a woman’s mummified body in the garage of a foreclosed metro Detroit home.
The body found last Wednesday in Pontiac is that of Pia Farrenkopf — according to her sister, Paula Logan. Authorities investigating the case haven’t released her name, but they have said that the woman apparently died in 2008 at the age of 49.
According to a report in the Detroit Free Press, records show Farrenkopf as voting in the November 2010 gubernatorial election. Officials say, however, that it may represent an administrative error. Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard says the information must be checked out.
http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2014/03/11/voting ...
And a side comment; how many Pia Farrenkopfs where there in Pontiac, MI? He name does not sound very common.
Oh, there is at least a dozen people with my first and last name in the U.S. but only two people with my last name flew helicopters in Vietnam and one is my father and the other one is me.
<quoted text>
Yes, and did did know one of you Libtards would have to respond but ask yourself, how many people named "Pia Farrenkopf" live in her town? It is not like she is a Shirley Jones or a Patty Smith, is she.
And you obviously did not read my "side comment", did you? And I thought I was the one with A.D.D.!
Any happens you want to blame a liberal? Why is that? Don't you think republicans can't be crooked?

Here is a partial pull quote from the article.
Though MSNBC has a handful of moderate conservatives—namely Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough—Fox stands out for the prominence it awards its on-air naysayers, many of whom occupy regular roles on the network’s most popular shows. Personalities like Kirsten Powers, who made her way up through the Clinton administration and now goes head-to-head with Bill O’Reilly on nationalized healthcare (she’s for it), the death penalty (against), and the Iraq war (against). Their screen relationship is one of playful respect; when their debates grow heated, O’Reilly warmly calls her “Powers.”
Why would liberals in good standing risk becoming Democratic Party outcasts by going to work for Fox? And why does Fox spend good money acquiring them? The first question is easier than the second. Tamara Holder says she’s often asked how a person who once wrote for GrassRoots, a medical marijuana magazine, found herself on a network geared toward the country’s most faithful conservatives. Her one-word answer:“ratings.”
The harder question is the one directed at Fox’s motives. Ratings, of course, would be the logical answer here, too. But it’s possible that’s not the sole explanation.
For a network that relies on a partisan base, adding a group of liberals is risky, pushing against the purity of programming that has historically been the core of Fox’s success. And yet the nation’s most-watched cable channel doesn’t maneuver without strategy. Since it launched in 1996, Fox has grown into the largest cable news network, drawing 1.1 million viewers in primetime and 1.76 million viewers in total per day, an audience that’s four times larger than its next closest competitor, CNN, and greater than both MSNBC and CNN’s audiences combined. Fox has gained this market share by its masterful manipulation of ideology, drawing an audience that’s primarily conservative, and then seeking to reinforce their values. It’s a strategy that MSNBC has scrambled to copy, setting itself up as Fox’s ideological opposite. But this year, when MSNBC’s daytime ratings slid below CNN’s, Politico’s Dylan Byers blamed the fall on MSNBC’s programming, which airs more opinion than any other news network, reaching a tipping point of “too much liberal outrage.”

Secret Ballot! That's news Rougetard?

Rougetard: "If you are a Democrat, you can vote for six years after your die. And if you are a Republican, you too can vote for any Democrat for up to six year after you die."

So if it's a secret ballot, Rougetard, how do you know Republicans vote for Democrats six years after they die?

Even more pathetic, not only does the article NOT say that the media is left wing, but it was written by a freelance journalist, and is not the opinion of Columbia University or the product of a study conducted at the University.

Jacques,
What can I say?
I think this missing airline incident would be something the aviation industry should have foreseen and practiced for.
Still no pinging after 5 days.
I am flabbergasted that these big passenger planes, every last one of them, are not already tracked by satellite.
It just boggles the mind that there is not already in place some sort of retrievable data set that shows where those planes are located and where they have been and stored in a tamperproof mainframe data bank smewhere at HQ.
They're probably spending millions of dollars every day looking for that one plane.
And there's probably something down at Radio Shack for a couple hundred bucks that they could slap on those jets to do just as I have suggested.

I read the entire article. Nothing even remotely approaches the notion that the media is left wing. What it does say is that Fox enjoys recruiting "left-leaning" personalities which in turn, or so it seems, allows Murdoch to get his far- right oldsters to outshout, browbeat the "lefties" and come out the winners. Which the credibility polls prove wrong, see....

What I did find interesting is the chart on ratings and credibility . Indeed, while Foxnews.com leads the charts on ratings, it falls behind MSNBC and CNN on credibility. Yes, Foxnews.com leads the ratings charts, as do "WWE, The bachelor and honey booboo" but falls back on credibility, whose "breaking news" equate to woman, dead for 8 years who voted in 2010.

I see it as nothing less than a monumental failure of the aerospace giants.
A cocky and pervasive attitude of theirs which inhibits their ablitiy to imagine.

My understanding is that the Rolls Royce factory gets real-time data on the performance parameters of every jet engine in service, which helps streamline's the service schedule of the powerplants and intercept mechanical problems as they develope.
It is a technology already in place, but for reasons other than search and rescue.

It's the invisible ink effect (that only birfoons can see). Birthers see things that aren't there. Just like Rogue, who sees "NASA predicts ice age" whenever he sees a plot of solar irradiance cycles.

Let's face it. Some newspapers may have left-wing leanings, who can deny it?---but most of them are well-written an award-winning. Even the rightist Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal and The Times of London are worthy quality publications, though in recent years, the have more and more leaned to the right. Still, well-written and highly readable. Apparently, Murdoch does not interfere in their publication though he is highly responsible for editorial staff recruitment.

On the other hand, so-called lefty newspapers like the Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times , Le Monde, Herald Tribune et al are quality publications, letting its editorials show their centre-left leanings but never editorializing the real news. It's a true pleasure to read these papers, as one can sense the high level of culture of their writers, feature writers and essayists.

Jacques,
I have known about that jet engine data being automatically sent to the ground as a routine maintenance program for a long time.
It is too bad those cocky aerospace engineers didn't have the smarts to include GPS coordinates in that live streaming data.
The technology is there, they are able to do it, and they chose not to.

Jacques,
I know hindsight is 20/20 vision.
But the world already experienced a missing high-tech passenger plane a few yeas ago off the coast of Brazil, in the middle of the vast and mighty Atlantic Ocean. I didn't really follow the story back then, but I think it took them a couple years to find the main wreckage.

There is no amount if money on God's green Earth you could pay me to ever fly in one of those rust buckets ever again.

And Jacques, just look at what happened to Mr. Balloonist, Steve Fosset.
Multi-millionaire, adventurer extraordinaire, getting chewed up in a canyon out there in the middle of the Mojave somewhere out in no-wheres-ville.
I know he was flying solo, but why is there not a simplistic GPS tracking system available for these kind of schmoe's for when they get into trouble and rescuer's need to come and find what's left of them?
It seems like a no-brainer to me.
