CNN equals Dems, Fox loves GOP

So, the GOP presidential candidates are shying away from the CNN/YouTube debate?

Can you blame them?

I don't think the problem is the Internet culture as much as it is with CNN itself. And that's too bad. For all of us.

Don't get me wrong, I love it when CNN reporters skewer Republicans -- and Democrats, too, for that matter. I hate seeing the bastards get away with stuff regardless of party affiliation. But, in the eyes of Republicans, CNN has become the avenging angel who smites Republicans. Only.

That's the GOP perspective.

Likewise, the Democrats despise Fox News for the same reasons. I no longer call myself a Democrat, but I agree that Fox is myopic at best, liars via selective detail at worse. "Fair and balanced" is just so much BS.

Too bad. When TV first came into power, there was balance.

But remember, the Democrats folded on a Fox News debate for the same reasons the Republicans are peeling off CNN. I'm not neutral. I'll continue to cheer Keith Olberman at MSNBC.

Well, I did not know that George no longer calls himself a Democrat. I don't blame him. I really no longer call myself a Democrat or a Republican as well. A plague on the houses of both parties, each of which fails to do the job very well at all.

He is dead right about the debate issue, but may not go far enough. My view is similar to Newt Gingrich: participating in all these kind of trumped up debates is the work of pygmies. The formats stink.
