      Just what health care needs, a tuoirtal on how to be an obnoxious patient and throw your weight around at the hospital. Good thing no one pays any attention to CNN anymore.

    1) A new study by the conservative Business and Media Institute purports ABC, NBC, and CBS covered rising gas prices FOUR times more under Presdient Bush than they have done under President Obama.
    2) A liberal Washington Post commentator responded by doing a Nexis transcript search that resulted in showing that Fox News covers rising gas prices TWO times more under Presidnt Obama than under President Bush.

    It is clear that there is bias on both sides, but where does the greater bias lie?
    Hint: FOUR is greater than TWO.

    And what does CNN do? Bring on a "balance" of guests from liberal to conservative that all have a record of bashing Fox News.

      “Why the security is tight on Muslim names in USA”It is not a qsetuion of famous Indian Icon being screened at the airport. Things as they are of the terror world belong predominantly to the Muslim world.Prior to terrorism making its step into life, Muslim religion on the whole was perceived to be seen of its inherent religious loyalty of oneness. Now, (religious loyalty is different from secular loyalty in the sense that religious loyalty stays imprisoned as passion of a religion whereas Secular truly speaking accepts the oneness of all religions; rather is supposed to accept as such but in today’s world cannot be seen as such wholly because of the religious dividing lines alive with individual basic loyalties and amongst those, Muslim is one religion that inherently remains aligned within the self from within of its separate class from others and therefore security norms have even come to apply on the secular category of Muslims overpowering the secular sense they come to project as moderators)? The reason for that obviously is the age old sense of Muslim brotherhood belonging to the cult of privacy or the personal law of religion whereas other religions by and large are guided by norms and not laws that makes them subtle to the core in oneness? This qsetuion mark should ring all the wise and others because that is the thin line dividing laws and norms.Therefore, where Americans predominately look at “from their security angle”, they inherently go through the channel of Muslim personal law of oneness not of its moderation but of subtlety that they think has brought terrorism of a blind nature into life. In other words, for the security persons on the job they just go by the security norms meant for such a probe to search that element in a Muslim that is of basic loyalty only meant for Muslims and that is where their routine starts of the nature independent even on the name of a famous celebrity to protect their rule of basic security law. At this stage American government has not relaxed such a law with exceptions and that is a thing pertaining to the house of their independent psyche on it remaining reactionary of reactions by others for whom that appears like a dilemma out of the blues – why not because security perceptions of different countries have their own models in play and those cannot be equated under a universal sense because each country’s horizon for it remains in a blank filled with feeds for their employment either with absolute strictness or with some moderation at times depending upon the angles of security where even zero plus security angle comes into the picture to avoid security lapse of the nature that America’s 9/11 has already witnessed. I think India’s Khan with his good intelligence base has understood that and that is why he has not insisted on the word “sorry” and has accepted himself in routine without any kind of ill feeling on it. However, a point of reference in this context that can be made is “while it is true that total security clearance cannot be given at the level of the grant of visa because departure and landing of a passenger in journey or transit are not covered under the security angle of the country concerned, a via media of it can certainly be evolved to maintain the dignity and honor of the passenger as is the case in reference and also for other known dignitaries who are public figures of repute or who have been as such known where name alone should not reflect as scar on a community. I am sure American intelligence would pick up this idea at a human level without even involving Ministerial views at the diplomatic level of the countries. “A good taste is always better than what leaves behind quiet bitterness”. Amitab Bachan, I am sure would appreciate the last line to speak his own volume as the social reformer for his good friend Khan who already seems hurt with a void that was beyond his ethical imagination just because Khan’s heart speaks and flows for others with all the love he gives and also expects the invisibility of love of others keep filling into him. That is the personality of a smiling sha-rukh Khan meaning “rukh” (ways or directions) for all in the class of celebrities and for the masses that he carries for himself.

      My 13 year old son likes to run around in the woods with his aiosrft rifle so every other weekend he goes out in the woods for these aiosrft games where they wear protective gear and shoot plastic pellets at each other lots of fun, right? I like the idea of him being out in the fresh air with men of ages 12 to 60 forming brigades and playing soldier great stuff.This past weekend I was disappointed to hear that the organizers put a man in a suit and Obama mask as a target to play a round of Kill Obama . He ran around and all the guts n glory guys took shots at him for fun. At first I was disappointed then I thought I'd lodge a complaint (I mean this is my president, right?), in the end I just decided that my son is old enough to make up his own mind about what kind of person he wants to be. His half-brother Junie is black and his best little brother.What's wrong with America? I can't fix people, but I can damn sure help to create a great man my son. This weekend he's back at it again with his rifle learning from the stupid adults.

    Because "real" conservatives give the rest of us a headache. Atleast Frum can sit there and give a conservative point of view without drooling all over himself.

      The truth hurts, doesn't it? Did they mention any criticism of Obie is racist, too? Question: was CNN, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, (everyone BUT Fox) rooting for a bad economy during Bush's presidency?? Are dems to blame for a persistent bad economy partially due to their overkill talking down the economy in order to win '08??? Face it; you morons dug yourself a hole that you won't be able to get out of for a long time.

      16a1403535fI want to show my appreciation to the wtirer for rescuing me from this setting. Because of looking out through the world-wide-web and getting basics which were not beneficial, I thought my life was gone. Living devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you've fixed by means of your good short article is a serious case, as well as those which could have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I hadn't noticed your blog. Your own knowledge and kindness in playing with almost everything was priceless. I don't know what I would've done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. I can now look forward to my future. Thanks very much for this expert and sensible help. I won't think twice to propose your blog to any individual who should have recommendations on this matter. 195

    Why is it that the MSM always make sure to point out, when reporting on high gas prices, that it isn't President Obama's fault and there is nothing a president can do about the situation? I don't remember the press saying this when President Bush was in office. Of course, Howie never mentioned this. And why doesn't he invite a real conservative, not a faux one like David Frum, on his show once in a while?

      It is amazing how much the mainstream media gives cover to Mr. Obama. They never want to point out that Democrats as well as Barack Obama were bashing George Bush over gas prices in 2006 and 2008. The accomplice media went along with the Democratic talking points at the time.
      Now that the shoe is on the other foot, that same media wants to make excuses for Mr. Obama.

        The truth is they will do what every it takes to take Obama down, even at the expense of our cortnuy. They simply cannot accept the fact that a black man is president, and it would be imposible for them to accept a black man as president being successfull!!!The birthers , teapartarian, are rascisit plain and simple
