Ok I have to ask what else they have done over the years. Maybe they right an article about the postal scandle years back and put an R after everyones name even though most were dems. The when asked the reporter said the R stood for representative. Maybe they do a news story with fake documents but use them anyways. Oh, thats the other news outlets.

Re: Merged Thread: Romney Drops Out; Can McCain Defeat Democrats?

mccain would beat either obama or clinton as of right now (by the polls they're run).

i'd love to see an obama/mccain election though. i wanted mccain 8 years ago.

Foley resigned from Congress on September 29, 2006 after allegations surfaced that he had sent suggestive emails and sexually explicit instant messages[1] to teenaged boys who had formerly served and were at that time serving as Congressional pages

and they made him a Democrat.

Re: Merged Thread: Romney Drops Out; Can McCain Defeat Democrats?

All networks, editors, and reporters have some biases, but Fox is biased more than any other mainstream network. When they have on-air debates, they are usually over whether the Dems suck or whether they reallly, really, really suck. So much for fair and balanced.

LOL those pics are hilarious. Not over the top or biased at all. That's the no spin zone right there.

Re: Merged Thread: Romney Drops Out; Can McCain Defeat Democrats?

Sure, because CNN never does anything wrong:




CNN places 'X' mark on Dick Cheney's Face

Everyone except the CNN graphics operator could clearly see the big black X that crossed Dick Cheney's face during a November 22 live speech about the War in Iraq.




According to Matt Drudge, "A careful review of the tape also shows a white colored 'X' transposed over Cheney's face during the speech as well." ...but what about the text below? What does the fine print below the big X say? Does it shed additional light on the sinister plot by CNN to make a mockery of the Vice President's important address to the American Enterprise Institute and the nation?



Unfortunately the truth isn't that sexy. The truth is, the text below is nothing more than a technical TV instruction to the program's producer and engineer.

Here's how I managed to 'crack the code':
1) I quickly discovered that the 'white X' graphic was easier to work with than the 'black X'
White 'X'


Black "X'


2) Next, certain properties became even more clear when the colors of the graphic were inverted.


3) At this point, I could easily make out several characters. The letters a-m-e-s and a few others are quite obvious.

4) A quick Google search provided the next clue. What television-related phrase includes these letters? Within minutes it was clear. The last few words read "frames of black"

5) Well, how many frames of black? The AFRTS standard is a minimum of 15 frames of black for the beginning and end of each spot but upon close examination, we did not see a 15. What we saw was a 5.


6) When the graphic is blown up and moothed out a bit, several more characters become clear. The letters a-e-r are quite easy to see.


7) At this point, a little crossword puzzle deduction helped me figure out what that next word was.

8) The next word (in reverse) was almost entirely hidden by the foreground text making it nearly impossible to figure out so I decided to test a few different fonts. If I could figure out what font was used, I could then figure out which letters could create the pattern. As close as I can tell, it looks a lot like arial but it's more likely helvetica.

9) The last word(s) was going to be extremely difficult. The CNN logo hides most of the text.


10) By determining the text font, we've opened several new clues. The most important being the very first character. - It's definitely a 'T"! No other letter in arial has the same left side pattern.

11) Also, looking closely, you can see an 's' and the last character of the word could be an 'n'

12) Now that we have t-s-n, what words might fit.

13) At first I thought 'transmission' but the arial text overlay didn't quite match.

14) After a few minutes, searching through a partial word dictionary, I decided to go with transition'

As far as I can tell, the phrase under the black 'X' reads:

"Transition begins after 5 frames of black"


15) and the arial font overlay seems to confirm this.

Screencap of CNN reporting on Putin's visit to Berlin. Too bad they moved Switzerland up and over to the Czech republic's spot on the map.

Notice how naming the Netherlands and Belgium was clearly to big a task.
