Just like your hero Fox....attack the messenger, rather than debate the message....you should be proud....years ago, Walter Cronkite and Harry Reasoner never pushed an social or political agenda.....and that's a fact....

There you go, jumping to unfounded conclusions based upon your bigotry and hatred. First, Fox network is an entity and can't be considered a 'hero'. Second, I don't hold the media in high regard, including Fox. Years ago, we didn't have access to the news in the way we do today, so we had to assume newspeople were accurate and unbiased. Don't know, don't care because the past is the past. You should quit living in it and focus on the present. Now, you jumped all over someone who listed the top news outlets and made a ridiculous comment about American Idol. Ok, so you're stupid or you made a stupid error....move on.

Yea, you are a bigot. Go back and read the post because it's clear you need to read something several times before it sinks in. You also need to get out of the past. During the time in history you claim our reporters were unbiased, I have to snicker. They were 'unbiased' because the public didn't have ACCESS to world information like the media. We didn't have the ability to question these gods like we do today. While I'm sure you're saddened that 'happy days' is a thing of the past....take comfort in the knowledge that the liberal media has grown bigger and stronger. Your agenda has been furthered because of the power of the liberal media and the way it helps grow the central power in Washington. You bet it's about agenda and the liberal media has control over a very large number of gullibles.

I guess if it weren't for the weather, liberal nazis and the liberal govt interference in the economy, the Great Depression wouldn't have occurred. I have to say liberals are the best at the blame game but that's what losers do. Winners know the real reason. obama is on course for keeping us in the longest depression in history.

The depression was started under GW Bush (actually the seeds were sown under Reagan) and the reason we are still feeling its affects are because the Retardicans have made it their mission to get back in power no matter what the cost.... We have given the "job creators" more money than they have ever had and still no jobs (surprise surpise). No blame.. Just facts that can be proven... They have stated as much themselves on many occasions....

Those seeds gave a surplus to the Clinton administration which was pizzed by the time Bush took over.The economy reeled because of Clinton's policies along with too many democrats in controlled created economic havoc. Certainly, Bush saved the nation from total collapse but then obama took over and we are tanking so fast, I don't know if Romney can save it in time. Getting rid of more libs will help us restore our constitution and the economy. Getting rid of centralized power by shrinking govt. will be a start. Your ilk continue to create economic hardship and then you have the audacity to blame it on the very people who keep bread on your table. What a joke.

Secret meeting?

SECRET MEETING?(talked about by a woman named Krystal Ball? REALLY?)

And Mr. Draper, who, even by his friends as evidenced by this quote

"...^ Clay Smith, "Writer-at-Large," The Austin Chronicle, May 14, 1999.("Evan Smith, deputy editor at Texas Monthly, recalling an engagement party he and his wife gave for Draper and his fiancee (now wife) Meg Littleton:'I toasted Robert and I said, "You know, Robert is a wonderful writer and a great person and an incredibly smart guy: Just ask him." And I meant that as a little dig at Robert, who's never had a shortage of self-confidence.'")"

show that this arrogant ass who writes about all things liberal would only impress people with an IQ below 40.

Is that anything like using Executive Privilege to cover Holder and the DOJ on Fast and Furious?

No it is not...because people can meet about anything they want, we still live in America in spite of people like you.

But the VOTERS decided in 2010, just like they did recently in Wisconsin.

But you just keep sniffing that rainbow-colored unicorn flatulence you call liberalism.

Yes.

Republiscum have and are deliberately and desperately trying to derail the recovery in order to destroy jobs, push us into recession, destroy the middle class and usher in fascism.

They have been doing this forever. It is not news.

Bush inherited: Pax Clintonia, full employment, economy on track to pay off the National Debt by 2010

Obama inherited:$3 Trillion in wars, 850,000/month in job losses, worst economy since the Great Depression

Obama ended Bush's recession in 6 months and has been creating jobs for 27 months IN SPITE of Republiscum trying to derail the economy by sitting on jobs in the Transportation Bill to name just one example of their despicable behavior.

Bishop Romney has already promised to GROW GOVERNMENT. He wants to give the military UNLIMITED funds to become the biggest, most expensive, most wide-reaching military force the world has ever seen.

Bishop Romney will accomplish this, along with tax cuts for himself, by eliminating Medicare and eliminating Social Security. That is his promise.

Somebody has to take the blame. The great depression was caused by the oligarchy. They gambled with the stock market and when it crashed the rich people got scared and vaulted up their money and left the economy to be supported by the middleclass and the poor. Without people buying thing factories went down one by one like dominoes. Then along came FDR. If Hoover and the rightwingers would have done what they were supposed to do the great depression would have never had happened and guess what....No liberals. You created them. And now you have to suck it up and live with them. Have fun.

Hey liberal bonehead!
No one is faulting Obama for WANTING to do the same things Reagan accomplished.
We are laughing at Obama and those that moronically follow him because he does not have a CLUE what to do!
How are those shovel-ready jobs?
Did we miss the "Summer of Recovery"?
How are those unemployment numbers?
Yes his buddies on Wall Street and in Washington DC are raking in MILLIONS as "fat cats" while you idiots turn a blind eye to that because he is THE ONE!
Obama "parties with the stars" and you quiver! He plays basketball, smokes and "evolves" and you gush!
Has he fixed ANYTHING? No.
Yet you and yours adore him, just for the "hope" of change to your rainbow and unicorn socialism where everybody gets what they want and some distant "evil, rich guy" foots the bill.
We "hope" you earn your own for a "change".
He had a lot to fix. Bush's mess was biiiiiiiiiiiiiig one.
