Lando Lincoln: OMG WHY DO NO TV NETWORKS GIVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE EVERY DECEMBER 7TH AT 7:53AM HDT?
Gig103: Good for NBC. A moment of silence is enough to get people to flip channels. If they land on NBC before they get to the cable networks, they might stay.
Gunny Highway: You mean like the OKC bombing?If people putting flags in front of their houses bothers you then I guess we just do no see the world the same way. Not better or worse, just different.
Gunny Highway: There is some major 9/11 backlash in this thread. Where does it come from? Why is everyone so ho hum about it?
thamike: farkityfarker: The US news media is New York based, biased, and centered.So obviously they're more sensitive about 9/11 than the country as a whole.Funny, the people I notice going on and on about 9/11/AMERIKUH!/NEVARFARGET/PATRIOJIZM are the same people who think NYC should be obliterated because of snootiness, business, Jewishness, or otherwise. And none of them have ever spent any time there, nor do they live anywhere near a target rich environment. They also seem to forget about the Pentagon and United 93 more than New Yorkers do. Two that I know personally had a bunch of armchair hero comments about 93, and neither of them have ever been on an airliner.[lh3.googleusercontent.com image 320x240]
iivel: Popcorn Johnny: Lando Lincoln: OMG WHY DO NO TV NETWORKS GIVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE EVERY DECEMBER 7TH AT 7:53AM HDT?Because the Germans are our buddies and we've forgiven them for the whole bombing Pearl Harbor thing.The Germans?
FlashHarry: "some say obama bathes in the blood of infants."
FlashHarry: fox was actually silent? i'll bet they still had a crawl that read, "some say obama bathes in the blood of infants."
das: FlashHarry: fox was actually silent? i'll bet they still had a crawl that read, "some say obama bathes in the blood of infants."Well, he does, doesn't he????
Mytch: Being patriotic is like being religious. If you want to be, that's great. If you go around trying to shame other people for not being as patriotic as you, then you're an arsehole.
Whatthefark: NBC will have a moment of silence.
Whatthefark: NBC will have a moment of silence. it'll just have a six hour tape delay.
