    and most all getting paychecks from politically-tilted megacorps who have only their own interests in mind.

    Of as Erin Burnett inferred during her CNN travesty last night, getting rid of the Superpacs and their ad money would "decimate our industry".

      is hard to come by.  If they print a story about a big company in their area, that Person/Owner/Corporation, retaliates by pulling all of the advertising.  The paper can't afford dollar loss.

      I am sure it's the same cable news.  When John King questioned Newt Gingrich, he was a collaborator lobbing a softball to Newt.  Newt's trademark is to attack the media.  Deflect from answering the actual question.  When Newt did answer, he lied about his ex-wife.  I call it lies of first impressions.  He attacked John King and made a big hissy show that everyone absorbs.  The next day Newt gets fact checked to be a liar.  The crowd is no longer around to see the follow up.  The viewers continue to believe and support the first impression.  Republican's have been trained to do this, and it works.

      'cause God may forgive you, but I won't. Yes, Jesus loves you, but I don't. They don't have to live with you and neither do I. You say that you're born again, well so am I. God may forgive you, but I won't and I won't even try"--Iris Dement
