    to neuter Fox News we're in a losing war.  I'm not saying they have to shut up permanently, just saying our side should get equal airing.

      We have right on our side. Why is countering lies so hard. It shouldn't be if we all stand together.

      Instead of nitpicking each other to death and all this infighting we need to stand together and support our democrats, with one strong consistent message.

      Free markets are not the arbitor of social justice and the moral high ground ever.

      Whoever has the most money and tells the most lies does not represent exceptionalism in AMerica.

      Rachel's response, especially re: Fox, might not have been a ploy to address this situation.

        I agree it is a ploy to expose fox's lack of a proper journalistic standards, and their blatant donations to GOP. Their primary talking point is trying to differentiate between news and opinion. It gets muddy from there... That is why I am surprised everyone thinks this is about olberman. It is about a news corporation acting out as a political machine. This stunt will get the dialogue going, which was missed in the election coverage. Or ignored.

        to get others besides Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart to speak honestly about Fox.

        Brian Williams gave the KO suspension about seven words.
