Rhetorical Answer

Captain Ed asks the rhetorical question on a lot of conservatives' lips these days:

[H]ow can we expect these [Democrat] candidates to face off against America's enemies when they can't bring themselves to face Fox?
The answer, of course, is that nobody expects them to face off against America's enemies either.

This entire episode just goes to show how the far, far, far left fringe controls the Dem party. Can you imagine if conservatives started giving PBS or CBS the finger? CBS and PBS are both more bias than FOX - as are CNN and NBC. (ABC, in my opinion, is less bias than the rest though still clearly a left-wing cheerleader.)

The Dems know that the kooks pay their bills. Hopefully, it won't take average Americans too long to see who really controls these people.

"The only thing wrong about bias is thinking that it does not exist. To believe that there can exist a neutral position is a bias toward fantasy."

Some are left, some are right. Where is that unwaivering belief you have in the wisdom of the average American to suss out the reality and vote their conscience? You tell me all the time I underestimate intelligence the lumpen P. so I look to you to highlight their strengths.

I actually wouldn't have so much of a problem with the left-wing MSM if they would just admit their bias.

Instead, you get self-righteous left-wing assholes like David Gregory pretending that they are neutral. It's a joke.

Most primary candidates are satisfied to lock themselves into a "me too" strategy - primarily because those who don't (e.g. John Anderson) don't win. So the Dems imposed their "boycott Fox" litmus test to prove their Democraticness.

I'm sure that if Mitt and Rudy decided that it was "Republican" to boycott the New York Times or Cosmopolitan whatever ("Nancy Reagan never appeared on the Cosmopolitan cover"), every single candidate would follow suit to prove their Republicanness.

That's an interesting take, OE. Have to see if something similar happens on the Rep side.

It's much simpler than media bias. The D's own almost all of the media. For a LONG time they owned it all, that's how they stayed in power.

No conservative can play with the MSM without getting fastballs thrown at his head, while the umpire calls it a strike. The D's get one groved down the middle of the plate, and if they whiff, it's a ball. That's not bias. That's a crooked game. The D's can't compete in a straight game, and they know that, so they cheat. The MSM is just the umpire in their pocket.

Funny... I would have thought the DEMS would be the ones to compare Fox to America's enemies :0)

Fortunately for us (well, all but one or two of us) it is the power of the ideas that prevails, not the people or the biased commentary of the self-professed "neutrals" like the aformentioned Howdy Doody of NBC, the provacative Mr. Gregory.

I'm waiting for him to ask tough questions of Speaker/Alternate Secretary of State Cruella de Pelosi.

But, I'm not holding my breath.

As Commodore Vanderbilt once remarked when someone asked him how much it costs to own and operate a yacht, "Them as has to ask, can't."

Maybe it's his open bar Tuesdays, and Free BJ Fridays?

Captain Ed is big because he was one of the handful of bloggers who broke the Rathergate story.
