    The term, "reading between the lines," is the tool I use when listening to the news because I also don't think the news is totally fair. New bias comments hit upon only highlights of an issue they are wanting to portray in their view of the situation, omitting some of the most important counterparts of the entire issue. Reading between the lines simply inserts the intentional ommitted facts.

        [QUOTE=Gio]Ann Coulter .... Not that she's a moderate, although i do think she's very attractive. :) QUOTE]

        I just saw her on Fox this morning and I thought she looked like a cadaver. Maybe if she was a liberal she might eat something. Like all those hollywood actresses, lol.

        Oh yes, her vitriol angered me. Maybe my reaction is the same as a Bush-lovers reaction to Michael Moore.

            Thanks for that Ann link, Gio. Is she treated like a buffoon in the US or do some people actually believe she is right?

            It is fine for people to shake things up so long as there is a "wink" when they are trying to be funny/satirical. Otherwise she would be scary/insane/a threat. If you read the Leno or Letterman monologues as though they were serious they might be (almost) the same.

            In saying that she seemed serious on TV this morning when she spent her 2 minutes insulting Edwards.
