    You probably all remember how GOP propaganda channel Faux News misidentified Republican pedophile Rep Mark Foley as a Democrat on 3 separate occasions.

    LOL

    So, Sanford is a Democrat now.

    Does that make anyone wonder what else Fox has wrong? It should.

    OK, now someone come back with a rejoinder that ( pick your favorite liberal outlet) isn't totally accurate either.

    That will make it all OK.

    Can't blame them for wanting to disown Sanford, but they should just call a spade a spade and move on rather than stoop to the level of MSNBC. It puts them on the same level as all the slobbering love affair with BO networks.

    News reporting has been biased since the beginning of politics. It is our job to sift through the biased material in order to get the facts we need to make an informed decision. The problem is that too many people don't make the effort.

    Also, I'm shocked by the "I'm on this side and you're on that side" mentality most people are demonstrating. Let's be clear, there are very few Republicans or Democrats who have a mind of their own and have the guts to speak out. The whole idea of career politicians is part of the problem. Too busy reaping the rewards, and pandering, to do their job effectively. The finish line isn't the election...that is where the job begins!

    There is a real difference between being biased, and distorting plain facts. Most news sources are biased, so they give their slant on the news that they report. What has happened here is a blatant distortion.


    Well, we're the ones who elect them.

    Maybe it's time to start a vote against all incumbents movement, and get some new blood in Congress.
