What's sad is the hypocrisy I pointed to. Hannity has been caught lying numerous times and I have never seen the right here call for him to leave. Same with O'Reilly and a host of others. When have you ever called for any of them to step down? A$$hole!

That's not "the Right" a$$hole...That's an overwhelming majority of the public in general...

2) You have a serious problem...

You can NOT fathom an instance where you're in the minority and the "Right" is NOT the culprit or enemy...If you are on one side of an issue, the "Right" MUST be on the other side of it and they're being evil about it...

When a Liberal says we need to do more militarily to face issues and give support in the Middle East, "F**k it!"...It's the Right's fault"....

When Democrats calls out Obama on a foreign or domestic policy, "F**k it!"...It's the Right's fault"....

And when a full 80% of the people that saw Williams apologize think it's a load of crap and he should resign, well..."F**k it!"...It's the Right's fault"...

If anyone wants to know why this country is so polarized, they need no better example than your posts...Because even when BOTH SIDES of political affiliation agree on an issue, such as this, you CAN'T HELP but to put on your partisan glasses and find fault with your political enemies...

Sad...

It's on topic. All of you on the right want to see Williams fired and shunned. But you only feel that way over people you perceive to be in the opposite party. Can you show me differently?

Nope, this is supposed to be a leading member of the trustworthy, objective media dedicated to searching out the truth above all else. The media claims special privileges based on this assumed virtue, keeping sources secret, exposing hidden government malfeasance, etc. But now we find out that Lyning Brian manipulates the news to puff himself up violating the core ethic of journalism but don't worry in 6 months he'll be back on the air doing it again..

They should have come to a decision quicker.
