It’s A Sad Day ...

Bill Maher is your hero Howie? Bill Maher? Don't tell me your're a big Michael Moore fan too. Come on Howie. Maher is nothing but a hater. He even got fired by a liberal network. That's hard to do Howie.

FedUpL8ly, Bill Maher is one of the most educated political pundits alive today. He can go one-on-one with the very best, as he is one. Too bad you have to be so closed minded and live in your little world with your small minded friends.

Bill Maher is a joke. The most accurate thing he was ever associated with was when he hosted a show called "Politically Incorrect". I was a regular viewer and lost count of all the times he stated facts that were not true.

nonfiction- CNN cancelled Lou Dobbs when Dobbs started calling for politicians to do something about illegal immigration. Of course CNN and other liberals can't bring themselves to even utter the word illegal. With them it's "undocumented". So the liberals working at CNN had an excuse to get rid of Dobbs when a lot of their viewers complained that Dobbs was a "hater" and a "racist". Only trouble with all of that was when it became public knowledge that Dobbs was married to an Hispanic. Now, instead of Dobbs, CNN has the likes of journalistic giants like Candy Crowley.

ok now I've agreed with you on two topics in a row. I don't have a problem with guys like Hannity or Rush Limbaugh. They make it clear that they are conservatives and going after liberals is what they do. Many on the right will not go on O'Reilly (Cheney,Christie) because he has criticized them in the past. He doesn't think Obama's economic policies are working. He says so often. This angers many on the left who then call him a liar but can never remember what he lied about.

Bluesman,

People need to be able to see the difference between fact, opinion, and lies. Guys like O'Reilly and Mathews don't try to portray their opinion as fact as some of the clowns on both sides do. They may ask rhetoric questions leaning hard one way, or only present one side of the argument, or express their favor for the one side. But they very rarely straight up lie, or present opinion as fact.

I do agree with you though that Billy O. is funny, clever, and doesn't lie. Careful though, your fellow loons won't like that kind of talk.

Most liberals are afraid to go on his show because they know Billy O. will not let them lie away like other shows do.

Also, have you ever noticed that only when Billy O is talking with a conservative friend that the interview is live? He does not dare be confronted on live TV by a liberal! Pay attention to his tactics and you too shall be amused!

bluesman, you are asking me to substantiate something I never said. This proves you don't even care to try and understand what other posters are saying. You have your mind made up and only you and a select few are correct. No, no my dear bluesman, the show anchor's are to clever to out-and-out lie. I said O'Reilly was funny and that he is. He will (sort of) agree with a liberal idea and immediately follow that statement with a guest (or 2) that completely disagrees with O'Reilly and ends up convincing O'Reilly that he (the guest) is correct in their thinking. This is usually followed by O'Reilly saying something like "I guess you could be right." Now Billy O has his sound bites from the beginning of the segment that he uses later to show the world how "fair and balanced" he is. This happens over and over again and is really quite hilarious. You don't think I watch Fox? I just heard this? Yes, I've heard this-over and over again from the horses mouth. Pa

"Five consecutive posts complaining about the amount of posts."

I forgot, literacy is an acquired intelligence.

First, there was no "complaint". Second, I was lambasting you for expecting answers after 20 minutes for your questions like a frothing nutbag. Had nothing to do with post amounts and more to do with your content. I know...I know, you ask, "content? What's that?" Content is the stuff you type when you post.

"you've never proved me lying."

Will hash up the examples (still in text, duh) shortly. Some of you apparently forget that everything you say is saved on the PJ database.

Bill Maher on HBO is probably the best show to see both saids. He brings conservatives on like Bill O'reilly Anne Coulter (spelled right???) Rick Lazio, David Stockman. With liberals, scientists, celebs, religious figures. Its nice because you see that a lot of sides and realize that not everyone is extreme one way or the other. I know the right hates Bill Maher but he's a gun guy.

Its hard to say MSNBC is that bias when former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough was his own show. I don't see Henery Ford getting a show on Fox.

Myrushie, If you are watching the Today Show to get real news, I'm sorry. You're better off watching the Colbert report at least then you'll laugh.

Lou Dobbs????

Got fired from CNN for his untrue right wing rants. Like when he said 33% of the jail population is illegal immigrants. SO fox hired him. I don't really watch Fox News or MSNBC, get most of news online, and sometimes its foxnews****. The problem is most people aren't smart enough to determine where the news ends and the opinions begin. Shep Smith, Chris Mathews and even Bill O'reilly aren't too bad. They're all bias but they're believable nad not just saying stuff that is blantantly untrue. Where Hannity is the conservative Olberman and theyre both clowns. Maddow is too much for me.

irony- you've never proved me lying. You used a truly lame website to fact-check while probably using an inappropriate request that resulted in you taking false results to the bank. Considering how you manage to mangle interpreting most of what many people say, I feel confident in reminding you that when you make a fact-check just remember, "garbage in, garbage out".

OMG Does Rachel Maddow NOT watch the news? Tonight, while FOX is reporting on the 3 blacks killing the 1 white Australian, she's reporting on the 2008 NC election, that Obama won NC!!! Good grief!!

Irony-Five consecutive posts complaining about the amount of posts. You are a funny dude. I noticed that you didn't complain about somebody who gets their info from MediaMatters. That's your favorite site to isn't it.

Yes it is cost. The paper has nothing in it. It took me about 2 minutes to scan the whole paper and check if there was anything worthwhile to read. So I quit having it delivered. I can get what I want online and I do think fox reports the whole truth and only truth and they tell you things liberal news won't . So you can read you liberal lies as for me I will read Fox online.

I'm actually humored yet saddened that so many posters (more sadly so it's expected) accept the absurd statement that China controls the Atlantic and Pacific coasts.

What a bunch of fools.
