  •  Ted Koppel Disrespects Iraq Veteran (none)
    Koppel really pissed me off when he spoke in a condescending tone to the guy with no legs. That pissed me off. If you're gonna rip Ted Koppel, rip him on behalf of the kid with no legs, who he thwarted, by inappropriately intercepting the question(not the job of the moderator - it wasn't directed at Ted Koppel) and interrogating the young Iraq vet, instead of letting the question go to it's intended recipient. He was very disrespectful to that young man.
    •  He should have let his (none)
      first comment stand. The comment he made represented an important view. I think Koppel felt the view was too simple for the forum.

      I thought overall, Koppel was fairly balanced. The Democratic rep didn't fight enough to get his voice out, letting Allen bogart.

      •  Ted is "balanced" enough to keep his job (none)
        A man of uncompromising integrity does not last in the corporate-owned media. Therefore, all the corporate media guys are corrupt, even if they do a valiant job of balancing their obligatory corruption with the meager remainder of their integrity.

        They should all be attacked. The corporate media is inherently wrong because it's a conflict of interests. There's no need to give these guys any slack. They've been around forever. They're well-paid slugs who defend corporate interests and the status quo. Fuck all corporate media! Let em have it. If you want to make Ted Koppel feel appreciated, hit Ted Koppel hard but hit Sean Hannity harder.

      •  What about "We will Prevail" (none)
        Bobby Mueller had the perfect response
        "what crap is that"
