    O/T- What Frosts Me


    Conservative news media will tell the truth about how much a mess Obamcare is but the prog demo media has little to no mention of how bad this thing is,, what's the point of having a news organization if they will not report the news,, what happened to the caliber of folks like Walter Cronkite who you could depend on to tell the truth,, its just shameful that these POS news agencies cant tell the truth and have their heads up Odumbos #$%$,, bury your head in the sand,,

    Sentiment: Hold

    • Craig,

      I urge you to find and read "Rules for Radicals" by Saul Alinsky. It is the community organizer and prog hand book. Kinda like the "Mein Kampf". When ya read "Rules for Radicals" you will UNDERSTAND the ways and aspirations of the prog. I dare to say it is the "How to" manual for despots and despots wanna be. In fact, "Rules" is the "enigma machine" to decode the moves and plans of the prog.

    • You mean like Fox News?
      Researchers at Fairleigh Dickinson University updated a study they had conducted in late 2011. That study only sampled respondents from New Jersey, where the university is located. This time, the researchers conducted a nationwide poll.

      The poll asked questions about international news (Iran, Egypt, Syria and Greece were included) and domestic affairs (Republican primaries, Congress, unemployment and the Keystone XL pipeline.)

      The pollsters found that people were usually able to answer 1.8 out of 4 questions on foreign news, and 1.6 of 5 questions on domestic news, and that people who don't watch any news were able to get 1.22 of the questions on domestic policy right.

      As the study explained, though, people who watched only Fox News fared worse:

      The largest effect is that of Fox News: all else being equal, someone who watched only Fox News would be expected to answer just 1.04 domestic questions correctly -- a figure which is significantly worse than if they had reported watching no media at all. On the other hand, if they listened only to NPR, they would be expected to answer 1.51 questions correctly; viewers of Sunday morning talk shows fare similarly well. And people watching only "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" could answer about 1.42 questions correctly.
      Other networks also did badly in some sections; MSNBC viewers and Fox News viewers both fared worse in answering international questions than people who watched no news.

      People who only listened to NPR or watched Sunday morning talk shows or "The Daily Show" did the best in the study.
