We agree here, Macfury. They had the chance to get to see the specific economic policies each candidate supported, and it broke down into a joke-fest.

What specifically happened between the moderators and the RNC candidates? Not a single example is given. No criticism based on fact is given, just complaining about... I don't know... cultural power or something?

Give us something to sink our teeth into, not this drivel.
Rather than trying to get the candidates to deal with specifics, they went for the "gotcha moments" and tried to get the candidates to argue with each other.

Thanks for the clarification, guys. I had a peek around the news sites to see what it was all about. This report from Yahoo! news is just as empty of information - referring to "embarrassment" "dropping the ball" etc., but little on the specifics.

I'm interested in how it went, but not enough to want to sit through the RNC debate

First off, the iron...

Second, the bias of the MSM is apparent to everyone, save you. Even the barest minimum of knowledge would give more than enough perspective to sink your teeth into.

Third, still waiting for you to defend your drivel on Tim Ball over on the GHG thread.

A shame you haven't yet learned how to behave in public. The material you posted, and the MSM article from Yahoo! offered zilch in terms of informing the reader of the controversy. I was an actual reporter for over a decade - and not an airhead put in front of a camera because I was pretty - I was actually, y'know, trained to be a journalist. These were the years before right-wing bloggers were magically elevated to Woodward and Bernstein status. So I'm not just a crank shaking my cane at the sky... I was seriously asking what was up, because the info you posted was insufficient. Learn some manners.

I have no desire to waste my time debunking a widely-recognized wingnut. You can repost from your favourite "whatsupwiththat" blog all you like. I'm not interested.

Funny, you were the one who falsely called me a liar just a few short weeks ago & once again your passing judgement on me? Once more: screw you...

The material I posted contained everything needed to understand that MSM is nothing more than an arm of the left political movement. If you couldn't see that, perhaps you're part of the problem...

Actually?? Well then, I'd say you definitely missed your calling with NBC. You possess that special progressive mindset required by all so-called journalists of the left.

Earn the respect you so crave. I don't give it freely...

If you're not interested in defending your position then quit scattering your little steaming piles all over the GHG thread, thankyouverymuch...

Oh, I think we need to add a little linky here so that the popcorn-munching readers of this thread will have a bit of context to for that one.

I'm pretty okay with my position on your positions.

Falsely calling someone a liar is falsely calling someone a liar. There is no context needed nor justification possible.
