I always get the Daily Beast and the Daily Caller mixed up. Which is why I was surprised to read the article.

The media doesn't ruin everything, the retards that watch the more suspect medial outlets* ruin everything.

*any outlet that parrots / creates GOP talking points

I am tempted to blame the viewers but when an outlet purposefully lies to it's viewers on a regular basis, I think that the blame can be shared.

What we often forget is that "The Media" is not one big entity, it's a large collection of individuals at cross-purposes.  Would we be shocked to hear "Americans say Americans are ruining the country"?

And there was me thinking it was the people who rush to turn everything into a partisan pissing contest who were to blame. I stand corrected.

Jaymark108: What we often forget is that "The Media" is not one big entity, it's a large collection of individuals at cross-purposes.  Would we be shocked to hear "Americans say Americans are ruining the country"?


But I've been told that "The Media" is all media that is not Fox News and the blogodome, and that they all march in lockstep to the orders of George Soros.

...the media is ruining America's ability to engage in nuanced debate.

You should really visit  http://whosmorefullofshiat.com so you can stop with the BSABSVR crap.  Both sides are bad, and one side is much worse.  To refute that fact is to sniff glue, so enjoy dead horse in your nostrils.

You weren't explicitly doing it, but the standard here is to say Both Sides are Bad, and upon further prodding, you realize that the poster is advocating for the GOP.  Because honestly, as I pointed out, both sides are bad, but not in equal amounts, so to put out a blanket Both Sides Are Bad statement usually means you are trying to place false equivalency on the levels of pure f*cking lying and evildoing from both sides to deflect from the side (GOP) that truly owns the title as "worst".

It sometimes really is "Giant Douche" vs "Shiat Sandwich". One one side you have a mild vinegar solution with some fragrance added, and on the other side you have human feces between slices of bread. I guess I'd not be terribly happy about drinking vinegar water, but it's far better than the alternative.

Fascinating. From what I've seen of the BSABSVR meme, it's used by blue team shills as a means of undermining anyone daring to criticize the Democrats by implying that the poster is just trying to push their own partisan bias.

I'm curious, who, in your estimation, is a "blue team shill"?

You can criticize them all you want, but you can't say that both sides are equally bad. That makes you a red team shill, which you have just shown yourself to be.

Again you've reacted to me not appearing to criticize the Republicans as much as you want to see them criticized by labelling me a red team shill. That sort of obsession really isn't healthy.

And here we come to the crux of the issue. Yes, I just went after blue team shills. Guess what - there are blue team shills and they deserve criticism for that, just as the blue team itself deserves criticism. The problem you seem to have is that not only do you possess a pathological need to insert a 'b..b..but republicans' into the conversation whenever such criticism occurs, but you also seem to believe anyone who doesn't is actively supporting the red team because of that.
