    Well, his rascist, radical, communist ass is gone...finally. What is so distrubing about this is that this is a story that was followed only by Fox news. ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and your personal favorite MSNBC, Completely ignored this story until he resigned. Once again just another example of the gross liberal bias in the media.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/o...an-Jones-non-feeding-non-frenzy-57271402.html

    Imagine this. A top bush adviser has been on the record saying that he was a self-admitted fascist, democrats were assholes, Obama was like a crackhead who licked his crackpipe for a fix, and you never see white kids involved in drive-by shootings, only black kids do those sorts of things. And oh yeah, and bill clinton was behind the Oklahoma city bombing. Imagine for a second that a white republican official said those things (the exact same things Jone's has been quoted saying about conservatives and whites) and the mainstream media scandal that would have been unleashed. This is why no one but the fringe left watches anything other than Fox (though i myself find fox rediculous for various reasons at times). Journalism is completely dead. You have Fox on the Right and the rest on the left and nothing in the middle. Its sickening.

    And who to point that out better than an equally biased voice from the other side? Or, are you one of those phony Libertarians who only hold the title so you can look like you're badmouthing both sides (and only focus on the left)? You're not fooling a soul, dude. :rolleyes:

    Of course im bias, but that has nothing to do with the fact at hand, and that is, that Fox news was the only media outlet to cover this story until Jones resigned. Thats just pathetic.

    Shouldn't someone be a birther meeting or some tea bag party or protesting how Acorn stole the election?

    Good riddance... finally, and hopefully there are more resignations to come. What I find most interesting is that those who vehemently questioned the vetting of Sarah Palin as a candidate are now strangely silent regarding the vetting of the slew of these "special advisors" to the POTUS. These are people -- many with unabashedly radical views -- who have been simply appointed to positions of significant power and influence -- ZERO congressional oversight over these clowns and no way for "we the people" to vote them in or out. A blatantly egregious end-around on the Constitution if there's ever been one.

    Considering the fact that he played a crucial role in Drafting cap and trade legislation, uh yeah, I think he was definitey in a position to inflict alot of Damage.

    Plus what does this say about;
    1) Obama's vetting process, assuming he didnt know the kind of radical Jones was

    or

    2) Obama's judgment, assuming he did know and appointed him anyways (which i find more likely)

    Let's be more honest about it and take away the left/right bias bullshit.

    We can easily look at Faux's inability to do ANY kind of long term, investigational stories on the antics of private companies such as the United Health Group, The Lewin Group & FreedomWorks during the whole Health Care Debate. How these and many other privately owned enterprises, who are only in the game to protect the profits of private health insurance companies, are hiring people to purposely disrupt Town Hall Meetings and are giving politicians (who have already been bought out by the same companies) false information as to what the Health Care Reform bill was supposed to contain. From what I gathered on televised news, only MSNBC was doing the investigating.

    Now, if I really wanted to feed into this pathetic, left vs. right bullshit you're spewing, I can easily blame the lack of coverage of this story on the ignorant "right wing media" who not only didn't point this out, but actually encouraged and egged it on. So really, are you here to try and solve problems or just yell to hear yourself talk like all of the other idiots on both extreme sides of the fence?

    News outlets will choose what they want to focus on. We all know this, so we should stop with the phony cries of political morality here. Just because one organization focuses and investigates a story and others choose not to doesn't always mean that there's some conspiracy to hide the truth. All of the information is there for you to find if you're willing to research it, and the smart people know not to only get their news from TV or radio. Which is why I find it very ironic that Faux News wants to brag about their high TV ratings... but that's another topic for another day.

    I agree, good riddance to old garbage.

    The lack of media coverage is.. well... expected in this day and age. Whatever happened to the whole of the 4th estate who relished in nothing but exposing cover ups and airing dirty laundry?

    Journalism is dead.

    Above is another perfect example of how irrational, nonsensical, and truth evasive liberals really are. You do not, under any circumstance, have the ability to address the post and resist urge to spin it off into a different direction do you Vinyl? You cannot be reasoned with. The fact is, you and all the other liberals on here constantly refer to FAUX news as biased. However, when you are faced with hardcore evidence that all the other channels are biased to the left, you respond with that horse shit you wrote above. Its comical. You have no principles at all other than affirming and standing behind liberal bullshit and bias no matter how often it switches
    sides.

    MSBNC...Investigating? You are braindead son. braindead. LOL. The same principles you use to deem Fox as biased you have to apply to MSNBC and CNN...but you cant and wont...because you are a coolaid drinker. An irrational libtard that lives and exists in the fringe left minority of ideas.

    Its complete insanity. Accuse FOX of bias but deny that the MSNBC and others are bias when its a fact that these stations completely ignored the Van Jones scandal. Instead, they spend all their time investigating conspiracy theories of orchestrated townhall meetings. Its rediculous. The other day MSNBC showed a clip over and over again where a guy heckled a paralyzed woman in a wheelchair at a townhall meeting who wanted healthcare reform (booo evil conservatives, boooo) but completely ignored the video of an Obama supporter elbowing a guy in the face at a townhall and reporting on the townhall protester GETTING HIS FINGER BITTEN OFF by and obama supporter.

    Spot on with all Points 24065 ( & Veep) :
    Just like the 30+ other appointed 'Czars" escaping any form of public scrutiny, yet that's Chicago politics as usual; & a complete oversight by the leftist 'mainstream media', as usual. Further points supporting by Veep & others below.

    - Next, one may come to question (as only Fox has) : D. Axlerod and that woman supporting V. Jones; being as Obama's closest advisors ?

    Needless to say, Bush would have been burned at the stake- had anything remotely similar surfaced during his last years.

    Maybe- Americans of any integrity or character are finally standing up!

    Sadly, the American abyss looms ever closer- with this idiocy !

    I mailed Van Jones his book back. What a freakin joke.

    I enjoy the blatant stone walling of the liberal news networks. I am in no way surprised....

    Ummmmm... YOU'RE the one trying to spin this into another tired-ass "blame the liberal media" argument. So sorry if you feel the need to beat your chest and act all holier than thou over it because that bullshit won't work with me. You should be the last person trying to criticize me for my actions, when you fucked it up on the very first post.

    The news should be about VAN JONES. Not the liberal media. Idiot. :rolleyes:

    Why? Because I won't completely agree with you?
    Tell me, how is life thinking in binary, always thinking that if life doesn't give you a one that it has to be a zero? :rolleyes:

    One thing I can blame you for is your inability to read. :rolleyes:
    Otherwise you would have saw that I made this comment:Just because one organization focuses and investigates a story and others choose not to doesn't always mean that there's some conspiracy to hide the truth. All of the information is there for you to find if you're willing to research it, and the smart people know not to only get their news from TV or radio.

    Where's that so-called "lib bias" in that ending statement, huh?

    You don't think everyone on this board KNOWS where most news networks and their loyalties lie? Like this was some brand new, never before noticed item that no adult in the history of LPSG has NOT seen before on their own, without the constant ad-nauseam reminder from people like you? Gee, thanks AGAIN for the reminder, Captain Obvious. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, your actions are laughable. How many posts have you made bitching about the evils of the liberal media on LPSG? Don't worry, I can hand you an abacus if you need help. :rolleyes:

    F**k you... the only thing you know about me is that my political mindset is usually liberal. But in your need to hold onto your own ignorance, you generalize & stereotype anyone that doesn't think like you as being "the enemy". You don't think I can't acknowledge the problems and issues that exist on the Democratic side? Obviously you have not read a thing I've said. You just look at my avatar, think "dirty liberal", then create a mind-numbing post of stupid rants.

    First off, it's Kool-Aid. You should know because your tongue is red with anger, just like your face as you typed this stupid response. Second of all, I never once said that MSNCB and CNN were not biased. Idiots like you who do nothing but think in ones and zeros think that a person like me, who actually pays attention to the decimal points can't use ALL the sources out there and come up with my own decision. All I did was give you a scenario of a story that only one network covered just like you did. I wasn't using MSNBC's Health Care Debate Investigations to try and shit all over your thread, but to illustrate how all news organizations, regardless of their bias, will find particular stories that they themselves will investigate. But I guess that's also a problem of the "liberal media" as well, right? Give me a break...

    Very original, shit for brains. You dreamed of that insult yourself? :rolleyes:
    Now, continue to scream bloody murder for the liberals and continue to take the focus of this thread off the subject that it SHOULD be on. Then maybe, someone could start a real Van Jones thread and it can be discussed by people who will not wallow in the same old divisive political bullshit that you always trumpet.
