    no, but they would call bullshit on each other, I think it was a little more fair/honest overall then overall

    Maybe. If they weren't all on the populist band wagon.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    See, that's the problem. To people like yoyo there the media has to be 100% leftist.

    The media has a "social" stance toward the left....so yes the media can be said to have a left wing bias. But the most serious and real media bias is toward the establishmenet. They don't give a crap who it is as long as they are paying the bills.

    Follow the money.

    He's a lefty. he knows this but he tries to hide his hero's warts behind any veneer of leftist B.S. that he can. Pathetic really.

    As Carlin said, it is the bulletin board of the ruling class.

    I do find it awesome how effectively they have bifurcated the citizens of this nation.

    I know, right? Until the leftist media was challenged through more balanced reporting by right wing sources, they were able to shovel their S*** down our throats unimpeded by truth. Now they have competition and their lies have to be more cleverly packaged and those lies are routinely destroyed by those dastardly villains who dare to stray from the herd.

    Things were much better before those lies were uncovered. Oh those glorious days of yesteryear when people from all walks held hands and sang Coke commercials. How I long for those halcyon days and the comfort of those blankets of unopposed lies.
