My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Why Don't Liberals Want A Debate? 

First, they embrace the Fairness Doctrine.

Now, they're trying to intimidate companies into dropping their ads on Fox News.

Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against Fox News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network.

MoveOn.org, the Campaign for America's Future and liberal blogs like DailyKos.com are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.

I want that database, too . . .because then I'll know which companies to do business with.

And, at the same time, let's all have a little fun trying to figure out what companies advertise on DailyKos, MoveOn, Brave New Films and CAF. I don't want to boycott them, but I bet their leadership would be interested to know the sort of economic blackmail their beneficiaries practice.

But, more importantly, these groups need to be confronted with their cowardice. If you don't like the influence of Fox News, then come up with better arguments to compete with FoxNews' conservatives. How about trying to win a game or two in the battle of ideas, rather than constantly working to change the playing field?

Which is why it's so infuriating when Republicans don't engage--our ideas are better, but nobody knows this if you don't shout them froom the rooftops.
