  1. I liked your media alignment chart. Nice work. A suggestion might be to also group the major wire services in this alignment. The reason being is all the talking heads use the wire services a the primary news sources. That would be why most all the daily news is almost verbatim the same.


  2. I think you all are too into being gods supposed spokespeople. Your so called ethos remind me of the new York city health department at the beginning of the gay plague. Suck off each other then French kiss newt g. Sex practice has little to do with politics, unless you allow political themes into your bedroom.
