16. More double standard. Republicans have been mocking Democrats about being "P.C." for a long time.
As though being concerned with hurting other people were some kind of foolishness.

But, now that Sarah Palin wants everyone to be P.C., every time she gets offended (or, as with Limbaugh, doesn't get offended) it's news?

Meanwhile, we're at war in at least two countries, which never gets covered, our economy is in the hopper and congress hasn't passed new laws to prevent another bailout. About 50,000 die every year from lack of health care. A snowstorm leaves kids without food because all the food some of them get is from the school cafeteria. Etc.

What the hell is wrong with media in this country?

What the hell is wrong with us that we accept infotainment instead of the kind of news that helps us be citizens?
