  •  so you make the rules then? (0+ / 0-)

    because it seems to me that you can create some neat little lines for yourself... but thats not how the real world works.

    your panel of whiners is only going to have people of all ethnicities and genders, but you will also have a test of some sort to make sure none of them get offended by stuff you dont find offensive? even assuming you were made media dictator, some of those people in the panel are going to have a hard time separating their hispanic self from their catholic self.

    •  We all make the rules. (0+ / 0-)

      We can decide together what is news and what isn't what is offensive and what's funny. That's why I love the internet. I make the rules-- I can go to sites where people mostly agree with some core ideas and where I can be exposed to new ones.

      So yes-- I do make the rules. That's the whole point. I don't read or buy the post because they don't give a shit about people like me. Their editors are racist, sexist homophobes. I'm not a whiner I'm making a choice about what I want to see or hear. Sitting around being offended doesn't make me "open minded" it just makes me stupid... and offended. I want media that speaks to me. That is not too much to ask.

      I told my local deli to stop carrying the paper and they agreed. Awesome.

        and it sounds to me like what you really want is for opinions you disagree with to have no avenue for expression. you could have just asked your deli to stop paying someone to read the post aloud to everyone that walked in. instead, you asked them to make it so that nobody can even buy it. you are what is wrong with this country. you and the people like you, on the left and the right, who are comfortable shutting down opinions that they dont like. its sad.

        enjoy your little victory. when the fascists come and shave your head and put you on the trenches to fight eh eurasians (we have always been at war with them), you will wish you had followed my advice and been a little less "sensitive".
