    Aren't Reid, Pelosi, and Obama co-owners of NPR?

    How about the left-wing bias of ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN? They are all mouthpieces for the White House.

    came here to discuss what happened in Copenhagen. What's even more frustrating than the inane brawl that ensued is the fact that the OP must think Copenhagen and Paris are the same places, as everything he writes refers to the Charlie Hebdo shootings in France... not that anyone cared.

    Whilst the OP may have blurred events in Copenhagen with Paris, the main point was that another cartoonist has been killed during a debate on Islam and free speech.

    Whilst the right and the left argue back and forth about radical Islam in the west, these terrorists care nothing about free speech, or even democracy. In their world view all none Muslims must bow before Allah and accept him as their god, or except the consequences (death or enslavement). The fact that home grown Muslim citizens in the west, and not just Middle eastern Islamic terrorists or immigrants, are committing these attacks is all the more worrying.

    If we bury our head in the sand insisting that there is no problem and argue over the politics of this, then I am reminded of the phrase from Roman history of Nero fiddling whilst Rome burned.

    I watch many sources for news... including Fox. I can accept their bias as well as ABC, NBC etc etc.

    "The News" is always biased. No matter what you espouse to politically. Left, Right or Center.

    What I have experienced for myself, again only for myself, is that many of my conservative friends and colleagues use Fox as their sole source of news. That is a mistake I fear.

    When you lose somebody, especially a woman, who's been around since 2008 and the old Palm Treo days, there's obviously a problem that needs to be fixed.

    Tell me something. Do you take the opposing side in everything?

    I fear more that people think John Stewart's show was really news and those who think Brian Williams is a paragon of honesty...

    Fox News is different from the rest because they're not as overtly liberal as the rest - as has been documented by more than one college study that you won't bother to look up because it goes against the meme...

    Well, let's see. Paris is in France, and Copenhagen is in Denmark. Do you need a geography lesson? I'm not always referring to Charlie Hebdo, and obviously you don't care what goes on in the world. Just put your head back down in the sand, and carry on.

    I have purposely stayed away from this thread and just enjoyed reading all the biased opinion. Fox News would be proud of all of you followers.

    However now I see the moderators taking sides, eg redefining NPR.

    I am a super moderator at another wireless forum and a forum junkie, in our forum and most of the others that I frequent a mod remains neutral and is required to.

    I have been thinking of leaving this forum for a couple of weeks and today's post was the last straw.

    Thanks to all that have helped.

    I'm still amazed at the 'Fox News vs whatever other media outlet' argument. Just like what you like and let others like what they like and stop arguing about which is more biased than the other. What in the world does anyone gain out of trying to prove that? "Fox News this, MSNBC that, NPR this, Fox that...." jesus, who gives a sh*t?

    So you know for a fact that she left because of that one opinion? Nothing else lead up to it or caused it? Did you talk to her or something? How do you know this as fact?

    Here's the problem, you lose somebody, especially a woman, who's been around since 2008 going all the way back to the old Palm Treo days. That's problem.

    You have BobLobIaw making this post: http://forums.imore.com/politics/270...ml#post2451829

    Now you have a smart arse doing this to her:



    There's obviously a problem that needs to be addressed and fixed.
    No matter what I or you say, we're going to ruffle some feathers. I see a lot of arguments from both sides and I don't feel compelled to reply to everything. I take what some people say with a grain of salt and so should you and others. If the discussions get a little heated, you best bring a portable air conditioner.

    Quite frankly, I don't care for Islam. It's a hypocritical religion. Muhammad had poets killed just because they wrote ill of him, and the reclaiming of Mecca was not a peaceful one, blood was spilled, and it didn't have to. Then you have these Wahhabist extremists. If they were going back to doctrinal Islam, than they wouldn't be shooting up synagogues, rather they would just be taxing them along with christians, (Also hypocritical, but at least Jesus only flipped out once, and he didn't even kill anyone in that temple). "Peaceful Religion" my ****. On top of that, I don't see why they think that Sharia law has any place in today's society. There is a reason Europe regained power during the renaissance, it's because instead of focusing on mainly theological studies, they chose to study things like space, gravity, and, of course, enlightened government ideals. I mean, before wahhabist groups, places like Iraq and Iran were beautiful, now because of infighting between 2 stupid groups, who by the way, Shiites should be gone by now as there is LITERALLY NO ONE OF ALI's BLOODLINE LEFT, are still having issues of succession. And now just because they think they're so great still, they think that they have a right to put out freaking hits on people who draw pictures of their hypocrite prophet, as well as instigate fights with Israel. At this point, I think we should just leave them alone and let them kill each other off.

    This really bothers me. I've been considering leaving the forum for a while, but this is the last straw. If you're going to like one post...you need to like ALL posts or none at all (as a moderator). I'm a super duper ultra mega turbo moderator on another forum, and also, a heroin junky...and EVERYONE I know pats each other on the back while circle jerking like the get along gang...but of course only in a neutral manner.

    I think you should consider yourself in a very influential position as a moderator on iMore...and consider the ripple effect your actions have in the universe itself. For all we know, the real reason we don't have flying cars yet is probably because of your biased agenda in life.

    It's disgusting.

    Really? Trickle down economics is absurd and historically destructive to every economy that comes within 10 feet of it. The republican chicken hawks get us into wars they can't win and can't get us out of. Hell Isis is gw's great legacy. Well that and giving us the biggest recession since the great depression. You claim you want small government but then tell everyone who to worship, who and how to ****, and who to marry. In order to think the right has any clue or positive bearing on this society, you have to have your head so far buried in the sand that you can see China.

    Both parties agreed to the wars.

    Obamanomics is great for the stock market, but not for the middle-class, whose annual income has dropped considerably since he took office.

    Let's look at that more closely. Which party won't raise the minimum wage? Which party won't give tax cuts to the middle class but fight for them for the wealthy? Who is in charge of the wallet of America? You're orange friend boehner and the tea party. Seriously, how much do you have to lie to yourself to believe this stuff. Its amazing.
