I know, I know...Chris Rock can say what he likes and get away with it...but thats another arguement
my point was,in the first place.. there was enough outrage ,email writing the network the vendors that placed ads in that time slot.. to get him gone..
the same thing can be done to get the news media to report the news, not their agenda.. but we haven't forced the issue, so we get what we get.. biased, b/s news reporting.. why, people can't see how easy it be to fix the media's agenda reporting.. is mind boggling

I agree with the above regarding not holding the media's feet to the fire, so to speak. The reason, sadly enough, is that way too many happen to agree with what they hear from major media. Arguably, it all starts in the homes and in the schools, which prepares people for further indoctrination by the media. Our national reverence for individual responsibility, integrity, hard work, free markets, private property, sanctity of contracts, honesty money, thrift, etc have apparently largely been lost somewhere along the line. The USA was a noble experiment which is facing a serious test to her longterm survival as the "land of the free", and it's not just because of the current administration. The process has been ongoing for decades.

he never voted for Cronyism. If he didn't agree he didn't vote at all. Check his track record. It's pretty impecible.

not voting at all.. thats voting for it, without being held to the fire for voting for it..
if you don't agree with something you vote, no..

washingtons problem is all the pork they add to bills.. they should be forced to make everything a seperate item, let it stand or fall on it's own..
slide'n in aportion funding into a mil.spending bill.. is just wrong..
then those that vote no on the bill, get blasted for not supporting our troops, cause the general populace can't see all the crap added to a bill. and well the media would never tell the truth

that's true but he's at odds with his party. That's so true. Everything now is stated as one thing but the details entail another. Good point.
