When Bill was in the whitehouse all conservatives did was bitch and moan about how Hillary is running the whitehouse.

Then they reported her comments about the upcoming Benghazi hearing as if they weren’t self-serving comments from somebody who is trying to cover up her own failure. Buckle up. But that influence is by no means limited to supporting liberals such as Hillary Clinton. They have a more balanced view.

She was getting an award from some liberal group for breaking through the glass ceiling.

These guys buy ink by the barrel and influence elections far more than a few campaign ads. Like the conservatives that live and breathe Fox “News” do this right? I would call you a hypocrite but I believe you know better which is just straight fraud. It’s the only channel that doesn’t toe the Democrat party line. Last night I heard ABC news doing a puff piece on Hillary.

Are you really OK with 138 people contributing 60% of all superpac money? How many of those people are even U.S. citizens?That said, I do agree that the media influence is huge, and this TED talk pretty much ignores it. Not watched, just overheard it. Not watched, just overheard it.

I think you mean W. and it wasn’t just disaster but bankruptcy as well; going all the way back to Arbusto oil. Last night I heard ABC news doing a puff piece on Hillary.

Not even close. Their whole network is a puff piece. They blatantly campaign for candidates and never have to report it as an in-kind contribution.

But that influence is by no means limited to supporting liberals such as Hillary Clinton. I found a puff piece on Hillary without even trying. Doubtful. No, she was just a respectable winner of the glass ceiling award, and they were just reporting a news story. Does Fox do puff pieces?

I really don’t know, because I don’t have cable TV. They not only comment on the news, they decide what the news is. I found a puff piece on Hillary without even trying. Originally Posted by Harold14370 This is laughable because all she ever did was ride Bill’s coattails into the Whitehouse.

CNN is extremely right wing as well, but Fox is just more cartoonish about it so it’s convenient to point out. Originally Posted by Harold14370 They have a more balanced view.

Was it really a puff piece or just anything not running negative on a liberal is “support” for them?

Heaven forbid she get an award for some conservative group… No they don’t.

Totally unprofessional. They not only comment on the news, they decide what the news is. No worries about the news media, though.

He isn’t trying to limit people’s right to free speech, he is trying to restrict the ability of a handful of fabulously wealthy people from speaking in a voice millions of times louder than the voice of ordinary citizens.

Why doesn’t the right bang the drum of failure for the 50 some odd embassy attacks when the right was in charge?

For the more than 4 people that died in those embassy attacks? Talk about propaganda. you love propaganda you just have a preferred flavor. CNN is extremely right wing as well, but Fox is just more cartoonish about it so it’s convenient to point out.

Are you really OK with 138 people contributing 60% of all superpac money? How many of those people are even U.S. citizens?That said, I do agree that the media influence is huge, and this TED talk pretty much ignores it. Hilarious rewriting of history!! When Bill was in the whitehouse all conservatives did was bitch and moan about how Hillary is running the whitehouse.

Any thing she was ever in charge of turned into a disaster. And, of course, no opposing views were aired. The media are overwhelmingly liberal in their views. Give me an example of a puff piece they ran on a Republican candidate. Just becaue that’s there tag line doesn’ mean it’s true.

No they’re not. Buckle up.I like how you always talk about Fox news. Very conservative networks that run the conservative stories on their “news.” Not only that but the right owns the AM bandwidth on the radio as well.

There’s a reason that Fox viewers are more misinformed than any other “news” viewership. I’m sure there will be plenty more as the election time gets closer. Buckle up. Really?

Then why did CNN run this Hillary puff piece?’Clinton News Network’: CNN Puffs Up Hillary’s 2016 Prospects | NewsBusters BTW, way to try and change the subject! Who changed the subject? Just a reminder. But fox said it you believe it and so there’s nothing more to it. Was it really a puff piece or just anything not running negative on a liberal is “support” for them?

Did you see the ABC report? Robin Roberts was worshipping at the feet of Hillary, begging her to run for office. Do the other conservatives know you’re pushing this narrative? Or do they already know cause they told you to say it? Originally Posted by Harold14370 Any thing she was ever in charge of turned into a disaster.

Originally Posted by Harold14370 I really don’t know, because I don’t have cable TV. Originally Posted by danhanegan I think you missed a lot of the point. Their whole network is a puff piece. Not if you’re just reporting a news story, right? And no need to report your in-kind campaign contribution.

Just becaue that’s there tag line doesn’ mean it’s true. Originally Posted by Harold14370 I really don’t know, because I don’t have cable TV. Sounds like it. Not even close. I wouldn’t watch that propaganda.

Originally Posted by Harold14370 On the other side, you have ABC, CBS, NBC, Washington Post, New York Times, etc., etc., etc. Not even close. Doubtful. The subject is the TED talk by the guy who wants to restrict political speech and leave the news media with a monopoly on influencing public opinion. Yeah.

There is absolutely no balance there. The media is not “liberal” not even close.

No, she was just a respectable winner of the glass ceiling award, and they were just reporting a news story. Does Fox do puff pieces? Constantly. They blatantly campaign for candidates and never have to report it as an in-kind contribution.Case in point. Didn’t the get the Fox Memo?

Only NEGATIVE propaganda for Clinton. Originally Posted by Harold14370 I like how you always talk about Fox news. How many Lesters are there in the news media? These guys buy ink by the barrel and influence elections far more than a few campaign ads.

If you restrict campaign ads, you are restricting freedom of speech, and leaving the field wide open to the news media.

was not “commenting on the news?” (something you were pissed off at at the starting of your rant) Originally Posted by Harold14370 Not if you’re just reporting a news story, right?

Odd how he got out of insider trading charges for selling off all of his stock before they failed.

On the other side, you have ABC, CBS, NBC, Washington Post, New York Times, etc., etc., etc. No they’re not. No they don’t. When was the last time you saw a puff piece on a Republican? It just isn’t done. Oh you mean Fox didn’t run that story? Don’t worry the “liberal” networks didn’t run it either. She was getting an award from some liberal group for breaking through the glass ceiling. I wouldn’t watch that propaganda.

There’s a reason that Fox viewers are more misinformed than any other “news” viewership. Kinda shocked to see you rallying so hard against your preferred “news” station Originally Posted by Harold14370 Case in point. Does Fox do puff pieces? Constantly.

Disgusting. just disgusting that ABC would say something nice about Clinton. Conservative networks who frequently do puff pieces blatantly promoting Democratic political candidates. He isn’t trying to limit people’s right to free speech, he is trying to restrict the ability of a handful of fabulously wealthy people from speaking in a voice millions of times louder than the voice of ordinary citizens.

No worries about the news media, though.
