This time aimed at Chelsea, calling her a pimp for her Mother's campaign.

These people are beyond disgust. Not one word they have uttered about Hillary, Bill and now, Chelsea, is true, including the lie that Hillary's people campaign workers are not getting paid.

Again, if someone could point me to a liberal, or left friendly network, I would like to know where it is.

The right, network owners and presidents, now own the media in this country. Atleast that's one thing China hasn't bought, YET. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I agree that this was a discusting remark. However, this is not a right wing remark. MSNBC is clearly supporting Obama, who is even further left than Clinton.

While wrong this is a left bashing less left, not a right wing attack.

Attacking Bill is one thing. He can certainly stand up for himself and he's been known to dish it out himself.
But to attack Chelsea for doing something expected and normal is low. Left/right/or moderate....

On what facts do you base this? Hillary said many of her campaing staff is not being paid. Is Hillary lying?

I had to laugh when one reporter asked her if her unpaid staff was covered on a health care plan!

Paychecks are back on. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Newsflash, Hillary sold the furniture to the Chinese and they paid too much. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I'll invite you to tune in any morning to Morning Joe for four hours of right wing bashing of Hillary, AND Democrats in general. Tune in any evening for another hour of right wing bashing by Tucker Carlson, and another hour of hillary bashing from Chris Mathews, a rightie posing as a lefty. Tune in any morning to C-Span, and notice the time allotted to those who bash Democrats, and the prime time given to all guests from the right. Steve Scully, is the biggest right wing devotee in this country. He runs C-Span, and was also responsible for removing Helen Thomas from her decades in the front row seat in the White House Press Room, and installing FAUX NOISE, and her place.

If you think the guy who made the pimp statement is from the left, you are completely unfamiliar with him. He is a right wing nut, and a Scarborough regular, one of many, I might add.

Gayle in Md. still waiting for a list of TV left wing presspeople.

What candidate for president, Senate or Congress, has ever provided health care for their staff, or campaign workers?

Where did you see Hillary state that her workers were not being paid. I recieved a statement from her campaign which states that that lie, was not true, from the campaign director. Where did you get your information?

Did this correspondence mention whether the senator was supplying them with healthcare coverage?

Just out of curiosity, even IF "Network/Cable Affiliate X" we're a right wing organization hellbent on just blasting the opposing side... why then would it be any better to find a left wing run news organization? Would that then be any more credible and accurate really? My hope would really be that you'd seek some kind of happy medium that could both support and contrast one's personal views. Afterall, either way you go the truth is usually somewhere in between.

Also, let us not forget that the whole idea of "media" (what later became major newspapers, etc.) all began as biased political workings anyway... as a means for a party, candidate, whatever to support their agenda. So really should we be surprised by a biased media, even assuming the fact that it is?

Sack

*** editing to add: if there is indeed no leftish sided media, and it's all controlled by the right, how then so we know so much about the "evil" (using that term as I assume that's what many of you view it as) that has been going on? Wouldn't it have been spun into a slightly more positive light than the general concensus is now?

You are becoming ever more delusional. Seek help.
There are mounds of studies which show the MSM has a liberal bias. I have posted quotes from major anchors, and editors who admit the bias. Open your eyes.

Where was your outrage when Olberman stated Bush was pimping Petraeus?

Don't embarass yourself, we know the answer ... you don't care because you are a blinded partisan and Olberman's statement encouraged the howling of B-B-B-BUT B-B-B-BOOOOSH! where the other did not.

LWW &lt;---So proud I escaped the chains of partisan ignorance.

<font color="blue"> I never said the right does not bash Clinton, I agre they do. The question is how much is deserved.

However, here is certainly not a case of the right bashing Clinton but many of her very own party. As much as you diminish Obama, it seems your party is beginning to see her much differently and if not for the Democrats disenfranchising their own voters in Florida and Michigan and the corrupt power of her super-deligates, she might be in trouble.

Don't worry, with 70% of Americans on her side, this is only a temporary setback. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

I still think the remark, even form the left was a cheap shot. I don't beleive for a minute that the Clintons would sell their daughter for political gain. </font color>

I'm not really looking for a left wing media source, I'm just stating that the media slants right, not left, and if it didn't slant right, we'd have seen may more reporters exposing Bush's lies pre-Iraq, instead of most all of them giving him a blank check, and/or helping him to spread them.

I've been listening to this hogwash about the liberal media for years. I'd like to know where and whom they are supposed to be.

As for sexism, it isn't a party specific condition, IMO, it penetrates both sides of the isle, and society in general, IMO, hence, women still do not make equal pay for equal work, according to stastics.

As for views, mine are formulated by watching our government in action, on C-Span, and reading books, from both sides of the isle. I only wish more people would turn off the pundits, and research the candidates, and watch government government in action, particularly the investigating committees. They are the most important of all.
