For Better Conversation, Shut Everyone Up(?!)

Senator Jay Rockefeller wants FOX News and MSNBC off the air (to watch the video, click here).

“There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; our ability to do our work here in Congress, and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future.”

First of all, Senator Rockefeller, if you have a bug inside of you, I’d recommend a visit to the ER. Crickets are cute, but not while occupying your appendix.

Secondly, the best way to encourage political discourse is to silence FOX News and MSNBC? I was always under the impression that shutting up groups of people was a way to END discourse. Additionally, where is CNN in this conversation? Does Senator Rockefeller consider CNN to be the bastion of unbiased opinions?

The real problem isn’t that there is a lack of solid political discourse. The problem is the Left’s unadulterated hatred for FOX News and any other media outlet that challenges the liberal media near-monopoly. FOX News easily beats out CNN, MSNBC, and CNBC combined on a nightly basis. Sen. Rockefeller doesn’t want to encourage political discourse — he wants to end it.

Liberals are generally strong advocate of free speech…for fellow liberals. When conservatives get the mic, they call for the mute button.

*slow clap*

Excellent point, Sen. Rockefeller. Excellent.

BATON ROUGE, La. — As Les Miles’ latest stab at fourth-down trickery was about to unfold, the LSU coach bent down, snatched up some blades of grass — and ate them.

“I have a little tradition that humbles me as a man, that lets me know that I’m a part of the field and part of the game,” Miles said as a smile widened on his face. “You should have seen some games before this. I can tell you one thing: The grass in Tiger Stadium tastes best.”
