Excellently stated and said!
Good point too
Unfortunately, their stubborn attitude toward Romney moves us one step closer to a European style Socialist State of fiscal insolvency.
Romney received more votes than McCain in all of the swing states except for Ohio. One million of those fewer votes were in California and a half million in NY. Neither of which matters electorally. Also, votes aren't final yet.
Many were the 8 million that Obama Lost from the last election. But there were nearly 3 million people who are registed republicans that did not show up at all, yet did vote in 2008

the angry, hateful, paranoid may not be the majority, I don't know that and I don't think you do either.
But there seem to be lots of them. Now you have at 25000 people from 50 states, who want their state to secede from the Union.
You're probably right
I don't claim to know who will or won't win elections. But to say the media is not liberally biased is a Joke. Media surveys by Pew Research show they support and vote democrat by a 3 to 1 margin. Washington reporters were a 12-1 margin.
I thought you understood economics, the personal opinions of reporters are irrelevant (the separation in numbers is mainly attributable to education) media companies are aiming for market share, conservatives has half the market share=no bias.
It is of great consequence when the swing vote tunes in just before the election when the WS is over and never heard of Benghazi. If that had been Bush they'd have plastered on every channel. They don't impact you or I. They can affect the Swing
Market share, media companies have target groups to make profit, conservatives are a large part of the market share thus the free market itself dictates the bias is imaginary.
I don't disagree with the marketshare. But swing voters are not cable news junkies. They watch the nightly news. Since there is not one prominent conservative voice on any channel outside of Fox, they often hear one message, the liberal one.
And what channel has by far the highest market share in the country? FOX does also CNN is largely unbiased despite the cries to the contrary. Fox basically stole the viewers of any other conservative network but the share ends up the same.
Yes, but Swing voters don't watch cable news. That is for the full/part time political junky. Swing Voters are generally not watching Fox or MSNBC. The watch ABC/NBC/CBS in between their sitcoms and reality shows.
