Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

Proof Of the Media's Hard Right Bias

There's been a lot of debate over whether the media is "liberal" or "conservative." But as I saw this week's cover of Time Magazine, I realized just how ridiculous it is for there to even be a debate.

The cover trumpets right-wing crazy person Ann Coulter. This is a woman who advocating blowing up the New York Times offices and claimed Vietnam war hero/triple amputee Max Cleland didn't deserve to be honored for his losing his limbs on the battlefield.

In a vacuum, you can certainly argue that its fine for a magazine to explore the ramifications of Coulter on America's culture. But this isn't a vacuum. When was the last time you saw someone of equal (if not more) importance on the left promoted on the cover of America's mainstream magazines?

erinberry, I think it is the ones like her with all her hate talk that have polarized all of us so much. I went to watch Michael Moore last summer, and there was no hate in his talk but yet he is demonized by the right. He even tried to get a bunch of protestors to come into the stadium and discuss their differences with him.

gingerdnapp... I just totslly fell out of love with you, no matter how "HOT" you are (as Dean4prez says, I dunno, personally, Ive never seen your pic:D). Mikey Moore is TOTALLY filled with hate, as is moveon,org, the daily Kos, and 95% of the blogs you have listed. Here, I thought I had someone who had a fairly open mind, someone who would at least look at the issues, but NOOOO... I see your as hate-filled and closed minded as the rest! Who, Oh WHO will be the mother of our children now???????? The FIRST time Micheal Moore lets a protestor "discuss" their differences with him, and actually has a "discussion"... PLEASE let me know, when I saw him on O'Reilly, he TOTALLY made a jackass of himself, as opposed to Ben Affleck, who seemed like he had at least HALF a brain!
