<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>People died to vote. They shouldn't have.<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>Look back in history and you'll find this maxim true for many first time voters. England, France, USA, the list goes on.<br><br>
_________________________ I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair. Then I thought what if life were fair and all of the terrible things that happen came because we really deserved them? Now I take comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe.
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Correct. But *how* you report on it does.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Agreed. But who are you convinging that hasn't already made up their mind? You showed a single headline to start the thread. I showed one entirely different. You attempted to portray a "slant" to the reporting based on picking out single events out of broadcasts and attempting to use those to make their broadcasts appear slanted. You are not being "fair" or "balanced" as you expect them to be. Hence, my Michael Moore comment.<br><br>The difference being your agenda is far more obvious than CBS' apparent agenda.<br><br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>I'm not up to date on which newspaper is liberal/conservative, but isn't the NY Times considered to be a 'liberal rag'...?<p><hr></blockquote><p>What else are they going to say post election? There is absolutely no way they can spin the election to look bad ... However, go back one day to Finlkins Sunday story and there you see the usually pessimistic New York Times:<br><br><blockquote>"Iraqi officials predicted that 8 million of the country's 14 million eligible voters would cast ballots, which would be a turnout of roughly 57 percent. But with insurgents threatening to kill Iraqis who vote and to bomb polling places, and with most leaders of the country's Sunni minority calling for a boycott, that statement, by the Independent Election Commission of Iraq, appeared to be as much an expression of hope as it was a prediction."</blockquote><br><br>I'm surprised the headline today doesn't read:<br><br><blockquote>Defying Threats, Millions of Iraqis Flock to Polls<br>Damn it!</blockquote><br><br>****************<br>
***************<br><br>This space left intentionally blank
&[censored] and giggles, CBS's "apparent" agenda has them exposed with their hand in the cookie jar.<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>Well, in this case, I confused Bryan for you, but to post one headline when there were other headlines there too that provided balance is not an obvious bias in the news.<br><br><br>
