I bet that in my hypothetical situation they would react in totally hypocritical manner because that would line up exactly with my preconceptions and bias towards them


Yup.

WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF THE OFFENDED!

Wait. A black person did this? To a conservative candidate?

Well let me be the first to say how appalling this behavior is!


It's a joke because it isn't one of your protected peoples. If someone played a song called 'Lyin Ass ******' when Obama was walking on stage, then would it still be a joke?

In before history and power of words lesson and the 'we can discriminate against you but you can't discriminate against us' logic is put forth.

MLK quote

" I believe in equal rights and once we get them, we will settle scores by keeping a chip on our shoulders and for years and years will exhibit equally bad behavior toward others. That is what we are marching for"

Hey, I remember the I have a dream to settle scores speech.

How about when HIllary is a guest they play "fat bottomed girls"

Or for Janet Reno "Dude looks like a lady"

For Barney Frank I would suggest "It's raining men"

K, thats enough... :P

Was it in poor taste? Yes. But to say it is "media bias" is retarded. The actions of people within a group should not necessarily represent the stance of the whole group. That's like if I'm part of a school and students from my school go and vandalize another school's property, it doesn't mean that I share that sentiment. And it isn't even bias. It's the band being sneaky. Gotta admit though...it is pretty funny that they had the balls to do it.


Oh noez!!! Somebody has a dissenting opinion about somebody! Let's get angry! RABBLE RABBLE!!! BITCH!!! MOAN!!! PISS!! BITCH SOME MORE! (repeat until satisfied with yourself).

Evidently no one remembers "True Stories of the Arkansas State Patrol" on SNL when Clinton was running.

Oh wait people remember, but reminding them of that might upset the whole "put upon right wing media bias" thing.

If Fox News is the most watched outlet, isn't media conservative by default?

I think in terms of number of journalists, newspaper editors, etc....it's not even close that it's chockfull of liberals.

Mainstream is typically broadcast news in case you didn't know.
