Best rant I've heard in quite a while. With all their defensiveness, this might just grow legs.

Good Job!

Excellent read, thanks!

Well sir - you have four years to sort out your platform, your cabinet, your advisors and your money raising crew - because someone is gonna nominate you for President in 2008!

The first internet-elected president, spending the least amount of "public money" to spread lies against the opponent. No huge collections of money to bilge up the media coffers - nothing for any of them.

Nope - just Mr. Robinson's internet solution to the problems of this country - and the truth from the wisdom of the members here and of other sites throughout the country and the world.

After what I have been watching here, it is possible. Think on it y'hear?

We'll chip in for some glam jams for ya too.

Thanks for the defense, both of you.

This is probably old news to most of the experienced members here, but I was noochin around for CBS stuff and Mel Karmazin in particular...found his "declared" political contributions.

http://www.newsmeat.com/fec/bystate_detail.php?first=Mel&last=Karmazin&st=

He's the COO or CEO of Viacom (CBS parent). Definitely a democratic supporter. Must be nice having a whole broadcast network in your pocket when you are political party.

The only republican was John McCain and that was probably Don Imus' influence.

JF Kerry and his pukin' diary of heroics

After listening to Kerry, you would have thought he could whipped them commies single handed and we'd won that war.

Still what bothers me the most is what he did when he got out. The communist were the ones committing those atrocities he described.

Still what bothers me the most is what he (Kerry) did when he got out.

In "Unfit for Command", the authors describe how Kerry visited a wounded officer stateside in his hospital bed. The officer is flabberghasted to see Kerry, can't believe he's back home so quick. And what does Kerry do? He tries to recruit this wounded hero for VVAW! Unbe-LIEV-able!

I think you're right. We've got them...

Oh, I think we ARE ready. We are watching them. There is no set up. Don't forget the kerning, curly apostrophes, text centering, and other aspects of the document that cannot have been produced on a typewriter. My browsing of various news services today, show a accepted determination of the documents being forgeries. I think its over for CBS. They have no choice but to back-peddle.

An observation I've shared before, but IMHO, what sets FR apart is the real-time, interactive nature of news dissection that takes place here. I truly feel that this is the future of news reporting and analysis.

To explain a bit.....

Someone posts a thread from AP, UPI, Reuters, wherever....and immediately, you get feedback/analysis from a housewife in Des Moines, an engineer in Boston, a lawyer in Chicago, a hunting guide in Alaska, a former military pilot in Raleigh, a GI in Iraq, a professor in California, a programmer in Dallas; you get the idea. Almost instantly. What the retired general may miss in the story, a sharp-eyed interior designer in Atlanta catches. What some "expert" feeds the news outlet, our own collection of experts rips apart and reassembles.

It never ceases to amaze me the collection of talent on FR. I've been on this site for six years, and have yet to see a topic here that has stumped our rather amazing set of brainpower scattered about the globe. By the way, the international nature of this site is often overlooked; we have regulars and visitors from literally every corner of the planet.

It's this real-time, highly interactive analysis that truly sets us apart and scares the hell out of the MSM, I believe. They can't stand up to such close scrutiny, for their biases and inaccuracies are suddenly illuminated under numerous, very bright spotlights by sites like this.

....and there isn't a damned thing they can do about it.

Agree with entire post - you said it so well. The old method of "news" has become tainted and it is time to reassert some integrity into the methods of delivery so that we never fall into the hack mentality again ever.

The internet can succeed if allowed to flourish and as future writers become even more adept at research and questioning and curiosity.

You write: "....and there isn't a damned thing they can do about it."

My concern is that because of its accurately perceived success:

.... the United Nations, and certainly segments of the global governmental bureaucracy will do everything they can to seize control of the flow of information to the public....
fresh, innovative, researched, argued, up-front NEWS and INFORMATION.

We must protect the innocence and vitality of what we have, never to release its spontenaity to a controlling group, and in order to do this, we must ever strive to keep the internet and what we produce, always a quality product, with a goal of the highest standard.
