Liberal media, while it does exist, is a myth on the scale of all media as most right-wingers refer to it. Rush, Hannity, Coulter, et al. There are dozens of major right-wing extremists in the media. Name one hard core lefty. You can't.
Matthews, Maddow, and O'Donnell ?

James Carville?

The press doesn't want to cover it because it's killing Obama's approval. He's currently lower than George W Bush!

Also, look how fast they dropped the IRS scandal. Typical liberal media.

The whole liberal/conservative media idea is a Machiavellian mechanism to have us think there are 'sides' so that the true problem is never addressed...

The privately owned media as a whole.


No, media bias ais a very real thing and it's been well documented for a long time now. Fact is, however, the reality is that most media is definitely conservative and owned by conservatives. Liberal media, while it does exist, is a myth on the scale of all media as most right-wingers refer to it. Rush, Hannity, Coulter, et al. There are dozens of major right-wing extremists in the media. Name one hard core lefty. You can't.

The patriot act and the nsa were formed under bush. The idea that the nsa has been collecting this data has been known for many years.

While Bush has been responsible for many ill conceived efforts, he did not invent the NSA.

edit: invest != invent

Er.. The NSA was "officially" formed in 1952.

Lol I love when kids throw the word liberal media around, just parroting off crap they hear from other people, like it's some sort of insult. It's funny because most of the media is owned by conservative corporations.
Uh ... you might want to go look that up. The media is owned by major democrat backers and donors. Fox, is the exception.

So in other words very rich people who are part of the 1%? Why oh why does everybody equate liberal ideas with the so called liberal elite? Liberal or Conservative, these two ideological slants have very little meaning anymore. The Elites on top who vie for power use ideology to pull in the ignorant man's vote, but they care very little for the ideology in question or for the average person. Once push comes to shove, the elites will stick together and do anything to stay in power. If Obama or the Democrats cared anything at all for the ideology they stand for they would have repealed the Patriot Act the first chance they had.

The mind fights having to reevaluate a situation, because it saves energy, and because the ego forms a false-self around identifying with world views. So when someone questioned their views, they fought back as a sort of retaliation for self preservation. Identifying with political views is ego.

Another way of saying that is that it was immature and idiotic to call people conspiracy theorists or tin foil hat wearers or whatever. It was a way to shut down conversation, resorting to personal attacks on the character of the individual. I'm not talking about %0.0001 of the population, but one into the millions of people who continue to try to raise the cry for awareness that evil forces are in power and that it's a lot more complicated and sinister than just 'those evil corporations.'

It almost seems like the press doesn't quite seem to know what to do with the truth they've discovered: the United States government (both parties) is intent on building a secret, almost-entirely unaccountable surveillance state while paying entirely bogus lip service to freedom, privacy, and liberty. I've spent the last ten years watching the press act like total NSA surveillance was a crackpot conspiracy theory. So what happens now that this is no longer debatable?

Spot on. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? No one apparently.
