Now this is funny-Sad, but funny!
The best line I have heard lately was, "I wonder if Katie, Brian and Charlie light up a ciggarette after they "interview" Obama."

~I hear Bill Clinton is a really likable fellow too. Being a charismatic and nice person does not mean you're qualified to be a President of the United States. Thanks for sharing the video. ;-)~

Oh my gosh! I can't believe grown men are talking about being in "LOVE" with Obama, getting a thrill running up your leg. That was really weird! I just don't know what to think about that.....weird

Who is going to moderate the debates? One of these "newspeople" that gushes like a teenage girl around the Beatles?
Here is my version of the debates:
Could be Katie, Brian, or Charlie commenting.
"President Obama, oops I mean King Obama, oops I mean, Mr. Obama,
What type of cologne do you like to wear on a summer night?" giggle...giggle...giggle...
"Old Man McCain, oops I mean Mr. McCain,
Is it true that you hate all puppies and kittens, and that you are personally responsible for all of the ills of the world and that anything that could go wrong will because of you?"
Just kidding, I think?

Forget Katie, Charlie and Brian. They don't have the intellectual ability to understand nuance. They are just the mouthpieces for a portion of society who likes their news in sound bites and slogans.
Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, Charlie Rose or Bill Maher would be good moderators. Seriously, forget the rest.
I can't wait for the debates![/QUOTE]
Keith Olbermann?!?! He's not even a good sports reporter! Talk about having "little man syndrome" and a sick obsession with Bill O'Reilly.
You must be one of the ten people (according to the ratings) that watches his program.
Bill Maher always struck me as someone who got beat up in high school a lot. He was funnier before he started drinking the George Soros koolaid. (JMHO)

I respectfully disagree GG-I believe Keith O's program is headed down the same path as your beloved NY Times. That's what happens when you don't report the news....(and you make stuff up)
I personally can't stand O'Reilly either-don't watch his program, but I understand he is very popular.
Finally, I did notice that you didn't include any conservative candidates for your choice of moderator. I would love to see either Michelle Malkin or Laura Ingram have a shot at exposing that empty suit of a candidate of yours.
I hope Alan Keyes, Bob Barr and Ralph Nader will be included as well.

1. The NYT is a liberal rag and they showed how much so by not publishing McCain's piece. McCain is not a liberal, therefore, he is not going to write a liberal article, which is what they wanted him to do.
2. McCain has been visiting with leaders and visiting war zones for years. In fact, he was held prisoner in one of them while fighting to protect people like you, for quite a few years. Obama has finally decided that maybe he ought to visit some of them, too. Maybe it will help him to make up his mind about his flip-flopping in Iraq?
3. Apparently a VP pick is not newsworthy to you.
4. While I agree that it is plainly apparent that the media favors Obama and reports on "important" things like what he consumed for breakfast, you are greatly mistaken if you believe that this is "the only thing they have left".
Obama is having a very hard political career, methinks. LOL.
Here is what other Democrats think of him:
Lack of Ideas:
Pledged to dismantle our national defense systems, including development of future defense technologies, effectively disarming America and leaving us vulnerable to attack.

Claims to not accept oil money, but in fact has major money bundlers who are oil executives
Claims to have no lobbyist ties, but several registered lobbyists have raised over a million dollars for his campaign, sometimes having their wives write the check to conceal his ties to them
Voted against his own economic package
Of McCain, Clinton, and Obama, only Obama backed the Bush-Cheney energy bill that put taxpayer money in oil companies’ pockets and helped gas prices skyrocket, yet he calls Clinton “Bush-lite” and McCain “a third Bush term”?
Claimed he would not run for President until he had the requisite experience

In 2000, voted for a gambling measure opposed by church groups, when criticized claimed he pushed the wrong button
Lies, claiming to be anti-war because he gave a speech in 2002 when he was not yet a Senator, but once in the Senate voted to extend the war more than five times
Lies, claims he will withdraw troops, when in fact he has no plans to really do so as his campaign has indicated conditions on the ground will dictate troop levels

Supported a live-birth abortion measure that even NARAL Pro-Choice America opposed
Thinks regular folks cling to guns and gods because they’re bitter about the economy
Lacks of Character:
Flip-flopped on FISA surveillance bill, supporting it after claiming a few months before he would filibuster
Flip-flopped on NAFTA, claiming he was only candidate who would support it, before backing away from it a few months later
Flip-flopped on campaign finance, promising for months he would fight for public financing, before opting out just weeks later
Lied, said he barely knew Rezko, when in fact he represented Rezko, used Rezko to get a sweetheart deal on his mansion, and tapped Rezko to serve as a major fundraiser for his political career
Lied, said Rezko only donated $50,000 to him; under pressure later revealed Rezko raised more than twice that and also sat on his fundraising committee
Lied, claims to be pro 2nd amendment, denied it was his handwriting on a questionnaire in which he favored a gun ban, later proved it was his writing
Lied, claimed he never heard anti-American, anti-White speeches at his church; his own autobiography indicates he did and as he later admitted under pressure
Lied and flip-flopped, declaring he could never disown Rev. Wright; two months later when Wright called him out for being a typical politican, Obama disowned him

Lied, claimed an article in Life magazine changed his life; article in question never found to exist
Admitted to using cocaine, but attacked anyone who mentions it as racist
Lied, claimed in front of a Jewish audience that his uncle liberated Auschwitz; neither American nor Kenyan troops liberated Auschwitz, the Soviets did
Hypocritically claims to practice new politics, but backstabbed his first political mentor Alice Palmer, getting her thrown off the ballot in Illinois in order to take her place
Hypocritically Criticized Hillary for her ties to Wal-Mart; conveniently failed to mention his wife’s financial ties to Wal-Mart
Lied, unfairly attacking and purposely distorting the Iraq Use of Force resolution, ignoring that Democrats voted for it because Colin Powell, an Obama admirer, told the Senators it was not a war vote but a bargaining tool to get United Nations weapons inspectors back into Iraq
Lied, unfairly attacking and purposely distorting Senator Clinton’s vote for the Iraq Use of Force resolution, ignoring that she gave a speech on the Senate floor indicated that the Bush administration needed to keep its word on using it only as a diplomatic tool
Allowed campaign to deliberately took Hillary’s RFK comments completely out of context to trash her, then when criticized for it, lied about doing so
Deliberately took Clinton comments out of context to label the Clintons racist by leaking a race-baiting memo, then when the damage was done, backtracked

IMO, they're both idiots...Ron Paul is the only one who would get my vote and I'll still write him in. I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils, I'll vote for someone who actually makes sense.
It's my understanding that Obama and McCain both want to send more troops to Afghanistan? I wonder how many wars we can sustain before our economy totally collapses.

[QUOTE=gg;963270]Thanks for posting the link.
Well, after reading the article at Bloomberg, there's nothing here to indicate that the Times is going any faster downhil than any other newspaper, or any other corp. for that matter at this point in time. Every industry has been hurt by the current economy.
Competion with the internet has been a prob for years, for all news papers. You are aware that they have won 98 Pulitzer prizes, more than any other in the field? It is considered a top of the line news rag worldwide and has been run by the same family since the late 1800's. That's saying something in this culture of buyouts and Murdoch owned "news" orgs..
I'm not sure I understand what point you were trying to make."
A lot of businesses are struggling-but one that has lost 82% of their revenues is heading downhill fast-thankfully! Imagine if another paper had turned down Obama's op ed peace....NY Times=Eliteism at its best!
Pulitzer prizes mean the same nowadays as the Nobel Peace Prize-I mean Al Gore? Come on...you can't be serious? Didn't Jason Blair win a Pulitzer prize?
And it comes as no surprise that you resent Rupert Murdoch's successes.
