Megyn Kelly Vs. Bill Press

I’ll have to admit, I like Megyn Kelly for more than her reporting. Beautiful yet feisty. What a combination. I don’t think that’s the impression Bill Press received when he was confronted by her regarding the Fairness Doctrine.

If you don’t know about this initiative, here it is in a nutshell:

– Liberals feel that there is an “imbalance” in the market place with much of talk radio dominated by conservative leaning programs. They tend to forget that most of the media outlets (newspaper, television news, public tv and radio, et. al.) are mostly liberally bent.

– They want to impose fascist like rules on talk stations to have a “balance” in programming

– If this passes, talk radio as we know it will disappear. Have you ever listened to NPR? Nuff said.

My question to all of this nonsense would be – would there be a reciprocating requirement on the liberal talk shows? Would we see balance on NPR, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC? I think not. These arrogant outfits believe they are balanced in their reporting – unfortunately they have forgotten what an OP-ED page really is and transformed it into the main stream news.

What happened to free will to choose what you want to listen to? If I want to listen to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck, no one is forcing me to tune into their programs. I seek them out because I enjoy the converstation and opinion. If I want music, I’ll tune into the local Rock Station. My choice. I’m sure this is all part of the Messiah’s plan to continue the socialization of America, but Bill Press is too stupid and clueless to actually get it.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

No Bias Here!

With the Vice Presidential Debates coming up tonight, it was revealed yesterday that the impartial moderator, Gwen Ifill, has a bias to the republican candidates.
I know, I know, it’s just such a shock! Most of us know that PBS is not a balanced news organization (much like NPR) and we shouldn’t be surprised. The only good thing about PBS is it’s children’s programming.
It seems that Ms. Ifill has written a book about Senator Obama, “Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama. ” How can the Debate Commission actually allow her to “moderate” the debate with this obvious bias. Actually, this may work out in the Republican’s favor as she will have advanced scrutiny – if anyone actually pays attention. We will just have to see.
Really, all that Gov. Palin has to do is be herself and let Sen. Biden just be Sen. Biden. Let him go long enough and he’ll always say something stupid. History is not on his side.
Of Course, this is just my opinion

Gore and Global Warming

Where is common sense when you need it? I am very tired of the sanctimonious do-gooders in the world telling me that the planet is warming because of people like me. Shade the facts however you like, but it’s not man’s fault that earth temperatures have increased. It’s a natural occurrence. Actually, according to leading climate scientists, the earth is actually in a cooling cycle. I didn’t see that in any of Gore’s assertions. Obviously he has missed this winter.

I watched the interview on 60 minutes with Al Gore. Leslie Stahl asked no tough questions, didn’t ask about his assertions, she just took his word as gospel. You can see for yourself, but I think I would have asked some more biting questions. Video Link: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/03/27/60minutes/main3974389.shtml

Something along the lines of, “Mr. Gore, many leading scientists have indicated that we are in a cooling cycle, what say you?” or “Mr. Gore, who is paying for your new $300 Million campaign to stop climate change?” “Mr. Gore, why is this global warming thing a US problem – why are you not going after the third world countries who are really polluting the environment”.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for conservation and not needlessly polluting, but come on. Global warming is natural – a normal cycle of this great planet we live on. Thinking we could actually “wreck” the planet is ludicrous.

Of course, that’s just my opinion.
