…for some people, is both disturbing and depressing.
Journalists who have a bias in any direction of the political spectrum beyond “facts” should be dragged out of their houses by the people and shot.
The job of a Journalist is to inform the population; an essential component of any Republic that ensures its citizens can make smart decisions when casting ballots.
When Journalists take it upon themselves to slant an issue, insert their own commentary, or effect political change towards an agenda they personally support, they are violating their duties in the same way as a gynecologist who gets off on fondling your girlfriend during an exam.

UNCW prof vows to destroy atheist student groups: “I seek power over the godless heathen dissident”

A Supreme Court decision forced a California state university Christian society to accept gays as members as a condition of receiving support from the school (“Other groups may exclude or mistreat Jews, blacks, and women — or those who do not share their contempt for Jews, blacks, and women. A free society must tolerate such groups. It need not subsidize them, give them its official imprimatur, or grant them equal access to law school facilities.”).
- At least 50% of political blog posts seem to be about how someone on the other "side" is complaining about something their "side" did too. #
