FUCK THE MEDIA!!
FUCK THEM FOR BRODCASTING palin's LIES WITHOUT LIFTING A FINGER TO CORRECT THEM.

They have access to the truth. It's their RESPONSIBILITY to deliver that truth. But, they are accomplices in the McCain/Palin lies whenever they broadcast them without context or correction. I expect Palin?McCain to lie. That's what we're fighting against. It's unforgivable though for the 'mainstream' press to publish or play these speeches of theirs without giving their viewers the FACTS!

Fuck THEM!!!

1. No difference from campaign '00 and '04. And the "media" never
showcased VP candidate Edwards but Palin is sure getting plenty of air time. If one didn't know better, one would think she is the one running for pres.

5. It's not just me then. I thought palin's stunt speech this morning was
possibly the most vile and dishonest yet. she doesn't make any attempt at the truth, doesn't acknowledge any of the lies that have been exposed already. she is even still presenting joe the unlicensed fraudulent lying ass non-plumber as the ideal American. I may have to turn off the tv until the victory on Nov4.

6. The media and the campaigns should be
under the same 'truth in advertising' laws ads have to adhere to.

Why in the hell aren't they?

Isn't choosing the next POTUS more important than picking a
brand of detergent?

WTH?!?

7. That is an excellent suggestion. could any rethug ever win another
election if that were the law? I can't see how.

10. You have made a simple but profound suggestion. In the world
of product advertising, blatant false claims are prohibited. In political campaigns it is allowed with no punishment whatsoever for the lies. That's not only stupid but a serious risk to our Democratic process.

13. No
Fuck Republicons, and the greedy pigs among them. When it comes to the media I'm certain President Obama will make it right. President Obama will not allow the gross misrepresentations that currently continue. I also see the Fairness Doctrine coming back so Pig Limbaugh and others like him won't be abkle to spread their unfair lies without a respionse. I've given up on the MSM, until it can be fixed.
