CNN producer says Russia narrative is bulls**t and for ratings

There are three basic categories of American cable news.

1. The MSNBC types, which have a Democratic party (not left wing) bias.

2. The Fox News types, which have a Republican party (not right wing) bias.

3. The CNN types, which have an establishment bias. They present the Democrat and Repu

Anti-semitism

We've been over this before, but Israel has free and open elections, a parliamentary democracy, equality under the law, pluralism, the right to criticize the government, and so on.

So does America (supposedly). You know it's bad when you have to compare these countries to places like Gaza and No

Sorry, But It's All the Right's Fault

Nah. The modern left is morally bankrupt and encourages intolerance and occasionally violence, just like the right. The Republican party is WAY worse than the Democratic party though, if that's what you meant to say.

Anti-semitism

I never said I was anti Israel (though I despise their foreign policies as any decent person should). Just that it doesn't automatically make someone an irredeemably evil piece of shit as we're constantly told in America.

Also, having good domestic policies is no excuse for having horrible foreig

Anti-semitism

Pretty much every Jew I know personally hates and opposes what Israel does. Are they all just morally bankrupt too?

The UK has no separation of church and state?

In practice, the UK is arguably a more secular country than America.

It definitely is. Western Europe secularized naturally over time, which is why Stephen Fry will never go to prison for blasphemy.


But I imagine it would be difficult to stop things like localized Sharia without separation

Anti-semitism

The issue is, it's on the rise on both the left and the right. The right obviously has the alt-right and a resurgence of KKK and Nazi rhetoric, coupled with conspiracy theories revolving around Jews and the New World Order. The left because they court antisemitic Islamists and often get a bit antise

The UK has no separation of church and state?

I learned about this via Stephen Fry's blasphemy case.

Could this be contributing to England's growing problem with Muslim immigrants? If there is no separation between church and state, then presumably the church and various other religions can legally get away with certain things that they neve

"These Campus Inquisitions Must Stop"

"These Campus Inquisitions Must Stop"

I think the bigger problem here is college deans and professors are getting controversial and destructive guest speakers without regards for whether or not their paying students want to hear them speak.

No, that's not a bigger problem. It's really not much of a problem at all. I think the fact t

This is one of those issues where Smiling is clearheaded and 100 percent right.


It's only happend on a select few college campuses

I think the more troubling thing is the professors and authority figures letting moron students walk all over them, probably out of fear of being thought of as

Supreme Court unanimously reaffirms: There is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment

In terms of public opinion, you're right. Average people are very willing to let an illegal political action slide if it they agree with it ideologically.

I don't particularly care about public opinion. I meant in terms of principle. The spirit or intention behind a law is much more important t

Uh. A GOP politician just knocked out a reporter and basically got away with it. Our GOP president has a track record of despising free speech throughout his life. It's not just the left. Stop being such an ideologue. I'm willing to put my biases aside and work on common goals. Why aren't you?

Actually, ideologues on both sides want to censor their opposition in greater numbers than ever before. I don't have time to pull up thee poll, but you can look it up if you're curious. Freedom of speech is valued less and less in America. Soon we might go the way of Europe.

You're not wrong, Pinky, but the spirit of the law is arguably more important than the letter. Especially considering the ban DID violate the letter of the law on more than one occasion.

I am almost exactly the opposite of you, Famov. I'm not super opposed to the Muslim ban itself, but it's a pretty blatant violation of the First Amendment. If he hadn't singled out Muslims so much when talking about it on the campaign trail, you might have a point. But as it stands, it's a pretty ob

Never take your first amendment for granted. It's the only thing standing between you and the new puritans.

You may be a fan of free speech to an extent, but you actively rooted against the First Amendment when Trump was trying to push through his Muslim ban.

it wasn't baselessly and he wasn't wrong

Unless he can quote me on anything that constitues victim-blaming, he's wrong. Hell, I quoted myself to him and challenged him to find the "victim blaming"; he had every opportunity to validate his case. Instead he just insisted that i was a "victim blame

Well being passive aggressive is a behavior anyway, not a disorder. It's possibly a symptom of something else, but not the disorder itself. Either way I don't claim to be all perfect if ya know what I mean. But even then if passive aggression is the problem then quite a few people on this site have

No, but it can still be a descriptor like passive aggression, which is also no longer considered a disorder on its own.

He should refrain from using this site until he can calm down and relax a little bit. Maybe a trip out to the country or an excursion to Italy.

Italians are the last people
