    I'm glad I'm now straightened out on that one. I would normally say that the problem is the madman doing the killing...silly me...

    Not for a lot of people out there. I know people who VOTE, that watch Bill Maher for their news. I'm not kidding. America has gotten that dumb.

    Anybody who watches/listens to ANY party radio/tv host (hannity, limbaugh, maher, etc etc) and relies on them for their "news" has big problems...

    Good thing that this only accounts for probably 60-80% of the country. :shattered:

    I know... it's so freaking sad... I don't have any problem with watching/listening to any blowhard on any topic/side. Where it becomes a thorn in my side is when people fail to realize that they're telling fractions of a complete story and sensationalizing the crap out of it for their own agenda. Pure and total "entertainment"...

    There is no "news" anymore.

    While I have no love for John Mayer, he really nailed it in the line:
    "When you trust the television, what you get is what you got, 'cuz when they own the information oh they can bend it all they want!"

    Wasn't there a poll recently that suggested more people got their news from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert than from "true" news organizations?

    So no one at all on TV or radio is worth getting the news from? I think it's healthy to watch and listen to a variety of sources. Is that reliable enough? If not, what then, are the best sources?

    The guy is described as a comedian. I don't get that, I've never laughed at anything he's said that I can remember.

    I should have worded my thoughts better because THIS is EXACTLY what my personal method is and what I would encourage. I do tend to avoid for the most part, some hardline idiots on both sides because their rhetoric is so fear-based of the other side that it makes me sick. BUT I do listen/watch from time to time if for nothing else, but to get riled up.

    My take is that if you don't watch multiple sources and listen to both sides, and THEN MAKE A DECISION FOR YOURSELF, you are simply bending to someone else's wishes/thoughts/brainwashing. The key in this is making a decision for yourself after you've read/heard both sides, understanding that neither is giving you the full story.

    He's only funny if you're pre-programmed to laugh at his "jokes." Anyone who's able to think for themselves see Maher for what he is; a dull, lifeless shrill and posterboy for radical liberals.
