Am I missing something? This is possibly one of the biggest stories of our day...a sitting general wined and dined by a media conglomerate and told to QUIT from the war he was in charge of and run against Obama...with the SUPPORT of the Network President?? Same networks makes their "expert" praise him as a setup to it?

Wow....

I agree. Very bad form.

I'm sure Chris Mathews will have a comment as soon as he can release Obama's cock from his mouth.

Looks like the Republicans missed out on their very own president who gets blow jobs in the oval office. But don't worry, I bet more will be along shortly.

Yep, now that Petraeus is no longer useful, he must be destroyed. The greatly increased body count as we are driven out of Afghanistan under Obama needs someone to blame.

That's true and it sure wasn't Harry Reid who leaked the tape.

Yep, RD, having the top dog of a large news network trying to subvert the US Government is EXACTLY the same as having one talking head who approves of a Pol.

You have to adjust your outrage meter. Which of these things is not like the other...was on Sesame Street. You seem to have missed that particular episode.

Petraeus betrayed us. Move on was right but just early to the parade.

Our colleagues have raised some interesting and difficult questions about Congress’ authority to regulate electioneering by the press, and about how to define what constitutes the press.

I see no mention of regulation, only an appearance of impropriety... Favre?

There is more to that opinion than the one sentence. I have read it and can summarize for those who do not: The need for regulation is justified by... wait for it... impropriety AND the appearance of same.

Where exactly is that in the Washington Post article or this thread? I have read both and can answer that for those with difficulties relating to subjects outside their OCD: it isn't.

Definitely another Favre moment :rolleyes:

Guns, Bent, Guns!
The logic is clear. Fox and their allies are pro-2nd Amendment remedies and Obama is not. Therefore.......all this BS about Fox trying to create and own the government is just.....BS.

The theory that FOX is the mouth piece of the Republican party and the one that says the opposite is true both have supporting evidence.

Likely both are somewhat true.
