Only if you read an article by the Daily Caller or The Hill.
The Daily Beast isn't exactly nonbiased. But you, like most liberals, will choose to believe them over all other sources at all costs.
A sound argument is a sound argument regardless of its source. To you a good argument is one that agrees with your preconceptions and "facts" are whatever you think they SHOULD be. That's why dilettantes like O'Reilly and Beck sound smart to you.

The unions seem to be more concerned about executive bonuses than about the jobs of their members.
The bonuses amount to less than $100 per Hostess employee. How long would that keep the company afloat?
So even though the executives ran the company into the ground, you think they should get their bonuses?

Is there any argument where you do not side with the corporations, executives, the rich?

A federal judge ruled Monday night that the Hobby Lobby craft store chain must offer its 13,000 employees contraceptive coverage without a co-pay, as mandated by Obamacare
Hobby Lobby sued to deny such coverage in September, citing conservative evangelical owner David Greenís personal religious objections to certain types of birth control that fall under Obamacareís contraception mandate. In particular, the company sought to deny its employees coverage for the morning after pill, commonly known as Plan B.
But on Monday night, U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton denied the request in a 28-page ruling, pointing out that religious institutions have already been given exemptions from covering contraception, and that Hobby Lobby does not qualify since it is a private business:

Bam!
Of course, Hobby Lobby COULD go the Papa John's route, and decline to provide insurance coverage at all...but I'm sure there's more publicity to be wrought from David Green's schtick. He'd lose an awful lot of bead-stringing customers if he dumped his employee insurance coverage...

Freedom of religion does not include imposing the tenets of said religion on those who do not accept them.
