Oh yeah there is definite bias, but it does have little to do with Democrats. I took several classes on that exact question. Mass Media and American Politics, great stuff and dispels a lot of this BS.

Re: Illinois Governor Arrested on Corruption Charges

I'm surprised that it took them this long to catch him.

Blagojevich is probably one of the worst governors Illinois has ever had, and he's been corrupt since he was a wee lad. Should never have been elected.

I made a comment about two months before the election that I don't believe George Bush is the worst president I'll have in my lifetime, in fact, I'm quite certain he wouldn't be. This, in part, was fueled by the fact that people like Blagojevich can actually be elected to office. God speed judicial system. Lock him up for a long time.

I was a mass media major so I'm sure we've studied a lot of the same stuff. It's a deep and fascinating issue and it's a shame to see it discussed so often in such primitive terms.

So you took your little liberal bias class with some liberal professor to explain how it is not bias. OK. Please now explain what I pointed out as you seem to skip that subject. Now one of Obama's top advisers just two weeks ago said that he "obama" had talk with Blagojevich about filling that seat but now Obama says he had no conmunication with Blagojevich. So now some one can not be telling the truth.

Who cares if he's a Vulcan, these charges-if true-are very serious and embarassing.

Ok, that makes sense and Hooskins I did not mean to belittle your college class. Not sure how this thread got here after I just pointed something out that I noticed when reading the article.

Re: Illinois Governor Arrested on Corruption Charges

No one f'ing cares about liberal bias and all that shit. We've discussed that before and this thread isn't about that. Move on and discuss the topic at hand.

Exactly, it's pretty pathetic regardless of party affiliation.

Exactly. It cheapens the actual issue of media bias to throw it at every single political discussion.

The dude's a serious crook. How do people like this get elected? The thought 'All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing' comes to mind. Guys as crooked as this can't hide it always so some people had to be looking the other way at times.
