Rachel Maddow seems to be using a satire website as the source for her anti-Palin rage. I wonder if it isn't time for Rachel to join Keith.

In the interest of being balanced and fair, I offer an alternate view:

Being neither a liberal nor a conservative, I was surprised to discover how much I've come to enjoy

Just like Maddow, we must all be careful of our sources.

Click on the hyperlink in the pasted story by Stanley Crouch. He calls Palin poisonous, and places her in the same category as Kim Kardashian, refers to Republicans as elephants, and supports Obama in all regards, well with the exception that he'd like Obama to be more liberal and tougher on Republicans.

I regularly watch CNN, MSNBC, FSTV, Link TV, CNBC, Fox News and Fox Business. I see more diversity of view, race and gender on Fox News or Fox Business than the other channels. I hear from multiple sides when a complex issue is discussed on Fox News, but hardly ever on MBNBC. Sometimes CNN does a decent job, but CNN seems lost at the moment, and still tilts very far to the left. FSTV and Link TV at least make no pretense about being anything but far left outfits.
