Kahabut: skullkrusher: " Not as many people care about this as much as they ought to, which is one of the consequences of working for a nakedly partisan shiatshow masquerading as news outlet."

Perhaps if you're a child this is true.
No work on whether Gawker doesn't find Gawker to be a partisan shiatshow masquerading as a news outlet

Gawker and Fox are both shiatshows, but fox is the only one masquerading as journalism.  Everyone already knows that Gawker is not much more than a liberal blog trying really hard to wish they could masquerade as journalists.

However, if you aren't willing to admit that fox is pure bullshiat, then you sir are a fool without equal.

you have pee hands: There are lots of crazy people at way off both ends of the political spectrum.  The thing they all have in common is that they're farking crazy.


this.

A while back in Chicago, a judge (Joan Lefkow) came home to find her mother and husband  shot to death. She had previously attracted the ire of white supremacist leader (Matthew Hale). Popular opinion was that some white supremacist flunky had undertaken an assassination attempt on orders from Hale.

As it turned out, the real killer was a random electrician who was bankrupt and disfigured from jaw/head cancer, and he blamed the judge for not ruling favorably in his medical malpractice case. He was either already crazy, or the horrors of his life drove him mad. Bart Ross went to her home to kill her but since she wasn't there, ended up killing two family members instead, then later committed suicide.

I'm just sayin', sometimes killings are motivated by irrational madness, insanity that has little root in mainstream or even non-mainstream politics. And sometimes politics are just a convenient peg to hang one's crazy hat on.

Fox doesn't employ reporters, they employ propagandists. She's not a journalist, just a stooge who broke the law. Send her to prison and call it a good start.

Fox News is a propaganda outlet and none of their employees should be considered journalists.  This woman is nothing more than a corporate stooge who's breaking the law.  Send her to prison and call it a good start.

Study it out, the evidence is right there.
Just study it out.

You'd make one crappy lawyer and absolutely the last person I'd want to defend any point of view.

You: "I'm innocent your Honor and I have proof!"

Judge: "Really? Do you want to present it?"

You: "Nope. Google it."

Magorn: at some point the judge realizes that the reporter is never going to comply, at which point they have the option of converting the case into a criminal contempt prosecution


If that happens, does the reporter get a trial of some sort?  It seemed like "contempt of court" was the one crime that could get you imprisoned indefinitely (i.e., until you talk) without a trial, I was wondering if there was a time limit of if they had to let you call a lawyer eventually.

Wow...please tell me that was a joke or a troll.

A response to my using it ironically.

// shiat, I hope it comes across as ironic


Mega Steve, you've never heard that before?  It's a fairly common term here in the Midwest, used to disparage the librul elite lamestream media.  Which, as we all know, is part of the "I bet the Jews did this" conspiracy.

physt: randomjsa: Liberals were perfectly willing to throw reporters in prison during the Valerie Plame incident. The right of reporters to protect their sources was cast right out the damn window by the ardent free press supporters known as liberals.

So the rest of that headline is "...the reporter doesn't have information that can be used against a Republican"

<strawman.jpg>

I didn't want reporters thrown in jail for the Plame leak. I wanted Cheney thrown in jail for it.


Why Dick Cheney and not the person who outed her?   Or is that what you mean...."I was wrong"?  I confused...

Why is it supposed to be a liberal virtue or a special right for reporters to not reveal their sources? The way journalism is right now, I think more reporters should be forced to reveal their anonymous sources, for accountability.  Sometimes they're protecting genuine whistle blowers or heroes, but more often they're protecting criminals and liars. The virtuous ones can take a jailing and wear it as a badge. I said the same thing when the media was white-knighting the war-mongering liar Judy Miller. If the media are going to get special rights, they're going to have to do a hell of a lot better job serving the public interest than they have been to convince me it's worthwhile.

I typically support the freedom of the press, in that it is a tool against government tyranny and corporate malfeasance ... but this reporter broke a court order which could deny the defendant a fair trial, undermine court proceedings, and negate evidence. Which is more important in this scenario; a fair trial or freedom of the press?

Jana Winter needs to burn for this.

She can't work for Fox News.  She isn't hot.  That'd be like an A-cup working at Hooters.  Say what you will about Faux News, they do have standards.

abiigdog: skozlaw: Prank Monkey: [citation needed]

The guy who shot three cops dead in Pittsburgh because they were "coming to take his guns" had numerous right-wing screeds in his possession by such notable idiots as Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity.

Jared Lee Loughner, though fundamentally more insane than anything else, was clearly ininfluenced by a number of what are traditionally right-wing, anti-government conspiracy theories.

Jim David Adkisson explicitly went out looking to "kill liberals, African-Americans, homosexuals" and made a kill list based off of Bernard Goldberg's book "100 People Who are Screwing Up America".

Timothy McVeigh was a far right anti-government lunatic.

Wade Michael Page was a white supremacist.

I don't know if I'd say somethign as specific as mass killers are usually republicans, but there's a pretty clear correlation between conservative ideology (and especially far-right ideology) and violence against people. Crazy-ass left-wingers seem to be more intent with burning down property and smashing windows. Crazy-ass right-wingers seem to have an unfortunate tendency to prefer shooting people or blowing them up.

It's almost like when you have multiple fat farks on TV and radio all day long vilifying people they disagree with as subhuman and blaming all of the world's ills on those people that some of the less stable viewers and listeners might not react in the most level-headed and responsible way.

If only there were a historical precedent for that type of propaganda and its eventual outcomes that we could learn from....

Are you high, Mcveigh's motive was revenge for Weaver and Waco and notably absent from your list are all the left wing whacko killings, is the L broken in google search for you?


Up to you dog to provide that list.  He showed his cards, you show yours, or you walk and your money stays.

A statistical analysis of news corp reporting in Australia in the current lead up to the election would show a statistical anomaly against the incumbent (relatively (slightly) left leaning) government. Whether it be the editorials, the letters chosen to be printed or simply the main stories in the first three pages.

FOX is not a source of balanced reporting, they are most assuredly agenda pushing. Which is hardly surprising since most of their income comes from corporate advertising, the last thing you really wish to do is trash your biggest 'supporters.'

This journalist seems to have a too developed sense of ethics and morality to be even working for news corp.
 
2013-04-10 07:32:33 AM
I find it amusing that Farkers are determining whether a reporter should be protected for revealing the truth about a situation based on where they work.  Its hard to get a paying gig in reporting, there are a lot of reporters that would happily accept working for FoxNews if it meant a steady, paying job.  So just because a news organization's slant on news doesn't go your way, the reporter gets what "they deserve" for working there?

Yes, this is Fark.  But if you are truly a liberal, your beef wouldn't be with Fox News, especially in this instance.

umad: Zalan: Yeah, it must get frustrating for the many(not all) conservatives who would deny rights to anyone who doesn't share their political views/values to see that the 'libruls' want to defend the rights of someone who works for the other team.

I don't think we're reading the same thread. It seems like most of the liberals in here are fine with her rotting in jail.

I wonder if a reporter's personal politics come into play heavily when choosing a job...
