Olbermann: Who the heck takes this guy seriously? Typical liberal rebuttal.

    I just wish I could carry Ponycar17 around in my back pocket, to remove anytime I need a good argument. You, Sir, know how to phrase your replies and back them up with proof in a way I can only hope to achieve. Excellent points and well presented...bravo!

    I need to comment on this some more... :D

    If you'll notice, I only quoted their article in as much as it quoted verbatim the MSNBC transcript. I accidentally quoted the last line of Newsbusters' actual content below...

    For that, I apologize... That was my laziness for not deleting the last line. :)

    So, if you're bashing my sources, you're actually bashing MSNBC. :confused:

    I actually didn't read the Newsbusters' article in its entirety. My concern was ONLY the transcript. It showed up first in the Google search... :p

    If I had wanted to quote their entire article, I would have posted this above the transcript... :eek:

    However, I had no desire to perpetuate Newsbusters' article. I had an opinion of my own... :rolleyes:;)

    Hey, I just thought I'd correct a misconception... :)

    Thanks Chris but I'd be pretty bulky in your back pocket. :eek: :D

    I'm humbled by your comments which I probably don't fully deserve. :eek: My wife says I analyze stuff way too much. I'm sure she's right to a large extent.

    This whole thing with the water-boarding thing is a big joke just to cover something else up. Even the people on Mythbusters willingly subjected themselves to it. And lasted quite a while if I remember correctly. It's not like they shoved bamboo slivers under their fingernails like what some of our vet's have been subjected to in wars past.

    There were 3 people water-boarded. One of those led to intelligence that likely thwarted a plot to fly an airliner into downtown Los Angeles. The left continued to dramatize this issue until one of their own got caught in knowing about the interrogation tactic. Have you noticed that since Nancy Pelosi has been implicated as being knowledgeable of the tactic, how it has suddenly disappeared from the mainstream media? Interesting, huh?... :rolleyes:

    I put about as much faith in Oberman's opinions and I do in The Weekly Standard. I wouldn't worry too much about what he says. To someone who thinks for themselves, it's not different than watching the O'Rielly factor or any other partisan quasi-newscast. The people who watch either are almost always automatically voting one way regardless. Much better things to get yourself worked up about than what is on fringe news outlets like CNBC or FoxNews.

    The Weekly Standard was also used only as a source for a transcript. In this case it was Cheney's speech transcript that they provided based on a Google search. Of course the Weekly Standard is partisan. I'm much more comfortable looking at media that is openly partisan such as the Weekly Standard or the Huffington Post than MSNBC or NBC for that matter, both of whom masquerade as legitimate news outlets but prefer to sway their audience to the left.

    As far as Fox, please do analyze the above PEW chart. I think you'll find that Fox was fairly neutral to political candidates. Perception is everything. When most media outlets are so far left it's difficult to digest that Fox is actually in the middle. :(

    It's sad that Conservatives have to rally around a middle-ground media outlet because they have nothing else to rally around further to the right. :rolleyes:
