That's not what the article you linked to says. All it really says is that Fox gets a big market share because they're one of the few (if not the only) major media outlet that doesn't skew to the Left.
But the media does in fact skew to the Right. Think about the ownership of the mainstream media outlets. Military contractors, warmongers, Rupert Murdoch (and his Saudi friends), the whole lot of them.
If you take a view through the actual political positions espoused in the mainstream media rather than through the "Overton window", you will see that the mainstream media and NPR and the BBC, are all right-leaning. Even the (supposedly liberal) NY Times and Washington Post were cheerleading George W. Bush during the run-up to the Iraq War.
Not true. So long as you initialize all your variables to NULL, and you never prematurely return from the function, having a final "goto CLEANUP" with NULL checks + deallocations at the end of the function, you can always ensure proper cleanup.
Or.... you could have the machine do all that automatically for you.
I realize that it works, which is why it is such a popular technique. Mentioning Saggy pants and how stupid they are, gets me labeled "racist".
This is known as the "but white people eat fried chicken and watermelon too!" argument.
It is a rhetorical device used most often by racists who get caught with their dicks out. It is seldom persuasive.
Where is the "SLASHDOT IS FBI" guy? I figured he'd be all over this story.
Maybe he's thinking about going back to being the "cows say moo" guy.
The media in the US actually skews to the Right.
When Dissent is chanted down by the Mob crying "racism" or "Bigotry" or "sexist"
Have you considered the possibility that racism, bigotry, and sexism are not really "dissent"?
Do you think I can get this "Ludacris" mode retrofitted onto my '95 Mazda Protege?
I'm not a Musk-car fan, but knowing it has a Ludacris mode makes me really want one.
Unless it brings the system down, it doesn't matter...
The system itself is broken...
That's how we got into Iraq, the fatuous logic that good motivations can't make a bad situation worse, often far, far worse.
But this kind of logic will always be with us, because it's a smug, tweetable, free pass on the hard work of coming up with and implementing a workable solution (and what idiot wants to attempt that anyway amid the boo-bird chorus of polarized politics?)
The Huffpo doesn't spin it this way, but these numbers are likely at the lowest levels since the invention of suburbia. I can't say much more than that, because before the invention of suburbia we probably weren't even keeping score.
The "system" is what brought a pretty terrible thing out of the closet. Sucks to be assaulted by a violent intruder? How about sharing your bed with a violent chest-thumper every damn day?
But there is a tendency - fuelled by taxpayer money - to leap to replacement quickly, rather than doing maintenance. I have rarely seen a system improved by creating a new one...because the new one is loaded with the same flaws (indeed, new ones) as the legacy system that it replaced.
But of course, the hazards involved with ripping and replacing the current political system are much smaller than ripping and replacing some aging government cost-control system. I mean, gosh, look at how well rip and replace worked in Russia.
The early sections of Nina Munk's book about the economist Jeffrey Sachs read like a celebration of a boy genius. No, strike that: Sachs piles up so many achievements so quickly that the word genius sounds somehow inadequate.
By the age of 13, he was taking college math. Later, he got near-perfect scores on his SATs and graduated summa cum laude from Harvard, where by 28 he was a tenured professor. Two years later, he was advising the Bolivian government on how to administer economic "shock therapy," designed to break the spell of hyperinflation. This led to an even bigger triumph: masterminding Poland's transition to a market economy in 1989, as communism collapsed in Eastern Europe.
Like most geeks, never seen a system he couldn't fix better. Until something blew up so spectacularly, he either got the grey beard gene forever, or curled up and hid in a closet somewhere.
Of course, if you watch enough superhero movies, you just need to put the word out ("the system is broken!") and somehow Jeffery will get the bat signal, and he'll patiently hand-stitch some brightly coloured, stretchy fabric (you'd be amazing what else he found in that stiff bottom drawer with all his grandmother's old Jane Fonda work-out videos) into the peacock man-cape he always dreamed about while he was acing his SATs (painstakingly ripping and replacing the crotch seam six times to achieve the optimally brash yet task-focused fit—they don't call him "Dr Sacks" for nothing) and then he'll spring out the window, and who knows, maybe he can actually fly. I guess we'll find out.
Either way, news at 11.
That all that matters these days.
How did anyone even notice that there had been a nuclear accident in New Mexico? It already looks like Fallout 3. I'm pretty sure there are already feral ghouls and radscorpions there.
But anyway, any excuse to play this:
I am also worth $90 billion, give or take $90 billion.
I'm hesitant to search for 'korean manbang' on Google.
Yeah, probably safer to leave that one alone.
There needs to be more investigations into Hillary Clinton. It's not like Congress is busy doing anything else.
FYI: The Trump suggestion occurred after the Russian attributed DNC hack.
Who then should we blame?
