You're going back to 1997 to dig this up? You're desperate.
MSNBC is hopeless propaganda trash now. And CNN couldn't investigate where their own van was parked in a shopping mall. Both are ObamaBot cheerleaders with no credibility.
You are deluding yourself, Al. FoxNews is the 6th most important cable channel in prime time and the 5th overall. They are not doing that by appealing to margins. In fact they are appealing to independents & liberals who find them more "fair and balanced."
On the other hand, MSNBC is maybe 34th and CNN maybe 40th. These really truly are marginal players. If you listen to their vulgar, nasty shows you will soon understand why.
Because clueless, uninformed lib wackos constantly disparage FoxNews. (Which I actually don't watch.)
But the statistics are readily available: FoxNews is 5th most significant cable channel. They are NOT the margin, they are THE CENTER!
MSNBC is maybe 34th and CNN is maybe 40th. real, unimportant, marginal players. But most libs just recite blabber from those channels as though it was TRUTH!
That really is the problem with the conservative right. They will try passing constitutional amendments to:
prohibit gay marriage,
teach creation science and intelligent design as science.
And I want no part of that! I want small government, small taxes, less regulations.
Not even 'Hope?'
Let's see, we've had 20 years of low crime, increases in jobs, increases in business, more tourists, America's safest large city.
What exactly does Bill di Blassio & the Democrats wish to change?
Everybody running around claiming how "Progressive" they are.
He used a shot gun.
Lets see, black, psycho, liberal, Obama supporter uses a shot gun to murder white people for no apparent reason....
What do we hear from liberals? "It's Reagan's fault!"
And I was worried that Al Jazeera America would be just propaganda.
If Obumbles had never become president!
Or if abortion had been legal in 1960 - 1961.
Thy've killed over 100,000 with bullets bombs and torture and I'm supposed to get unraveled because they killed a few with gas. EH!
To be honest, I don't really care. Both sides are blood thirsty barbarians. Muslims killing Muslims, "Let Allah sort it out!"
Give me a hundred thousand dollars, and I'll give you a quarter back!
HA HA HA LOL!
I have often wondered if things might have been different if Greenberg had stayed around.
(1) AIG sold "insurance" on derivatives but bought no "reinsurance" to protect their own bottom line. This is SO STUPID for an insurance guy.
(2) The Quant Unit was in England where it was less supervised than if it might have been at AIG's HG in lower Manhattan. It would seem that none of the hot-shot quants were insurance guys with basic business knowledge. They were all just number crunchers.
(3) I heard most of the billions we poured through AIG were to make EU banks solvent. We spent BILLIONS to subsidize the EU. Now I have to listen to munchingmanpolejumper tell me how the EU is more efficient & profitable. We subsidize their socialist economy, healthcare and national defense. Ain't that BEAUTIFUL!
