Default The media, it sickens me at times.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15463034/site/newsweek

The article is not a bad one, but one part struck me as disgusting.

Quote:
Overseas, the threat is more ominous: reports of a possible attack on Saudi oil installations (which could raise U.S. gas prices).
Lets not metion the thousands of soldiers, and innocent people that would die because of this senseless conflict...Is gas really all this world is worried about anymore? We shouldn't be using it like we do anyways. I guess the United States values gas prices more than innocent lives.

I guess its not really a big deal. It is just one article. It just really caught me off guard.

discuss.flame.whatever.

In MSNBC's defense. They are a financial network thus when writing they look at the financial side of the story.

On the other hand. I dislike the media for their partisan bickering and mudslinging.

If you don't want to see biased media, then don't watch TV. Because there's not a single station that isn't biased in someway as far as news is concerned.

yep. thats what my english/history teacher tells everyone, so all he reads/watches/listens to is BBC... and according to CNN, since the economy has gone up and gas prices down, more and more people dont think of those two as a primary concern during elections.

I have not owned or watched a TV for almost 3 years now. Only thing I really miss are those political commercials around election time -
