    if you want to talk about their evening line up. Won't and didn't argue. Although I WILL continue to argue that MSNBC does "partisan" MUCH differently than FOX.

    And while I understand that say, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, Kornaki, etc,  must perform w/in the limits of their corporate masters, they perform way better than FOX any day, putting out more facts and more work to get there than Fox cares to come close to matching---not necessary for their audience.  

    Imo, you DID make the point that MSNBC and FOX are the same, by your lack of reference to important differences between the two. And I hold fast to my point that there are many of those differences, despite their acknowledged "leans."

    It's OK, we can agree to disagree.

      I have some obligation to also go through all the ways that are different?  If I make the point that two things are alike in one way, and don't in the same post go through all of the differences, that means I am affirmatively saying that they are alike in all ways?  Who made that rule?

      Imo, you DID make the point that MSNBC and FOX are the same, by your lack of reference to important differences between the two.
       If I make a statement in a post that Christie and Cuomo are both governors of states in the northeast, that's the same as saying that they are alike in all ways???  That's what you are saying and that's absurd.    

      I pointed out the one way they are alike, because that is the reason I don't watch much of either, and because I think that that one way they are alike -- that they both are partisan -- is not healthy for the country.   In other words the way that they are alike was relevant to the point I wanted to make.  If you want to make a point where their differences are relevant, that's fine, that's your prerogative.  I have no quarrel with that. But I do have an issue with you attributing to me a point I did NOT make.

        to the fact that both MSNBC and FOX are alike enough for you to disqualify either of  them from being something you want to watch, in your own words.  That's fine, and your choice. Although boy, if you have a problem w/the partisanship of MSNBC, I do wonder why you want to be here.

        As many ways as you want to say this, the fact remains that you have decided both these outlets equal the same response from you---they are both "too partisan" for your tastes and "not good for the country."

        We don't share this view. And no matter how many times you want to tell me that's a point you didn't make, you made it again here. And we do not agree. For me, I am thankful that the market has created some answer to FOX.
