  •  I'M SO SICK (4.00)
    of ONE OR TWO wing nut republicans getting Clear Channel the Washington Post, New York Times, CBS, ABC, FORD to bow down and kiss their feet and promise to never ever ever have a liberal bias again. While 1000+ comments first in support of Fromkin's response and then against the stupid editor's whiny come back MEANS NOTHING!!!! One guy from some group w/ the name FAMILY in it carries more weight than 1000 people from a "liberal" group.  WHY IS THIS HAPPENING OVER AND OVER AND OVER!!!! Don't they get it!!! 1000 mad people will hurt your pocket book a lot more than 1 guy from the family church hypocrit organization.

    It's not easy being a Floridian.

    •  Well, not really (none)
      That's the problem.

      That one person with 'Family' after his name will get you tons of mail, bad press, etc.

      The couple million others will just sit back and go 'huh?'

      It's the squeaky wheel gets the grease school of journalism.

      Problem is, that damn wheel just keeps on squeaking, no matter how much grease you give it. You'd think the press would realize that maybe they should just get a new wheel, or learn to ignore the squeaking.
