    It's the same as the coverage of Zeke's court case. The networks are in bed with the NFL. Can't bite the golden goose.

    The article says the network TV production didn't show the crowds. The first citation was an AP article --media outside of your conservative media bubble.

    Think about this: The Anthem is 4 - 6 minutes long, given the version of the singer/musician. Most are saying we should honor and reveal that moment as sacred, and display unity. What happens to the remaining 1436 to 1444 minutes remaining in the day, after the last note of the Anthem is played.....return to being divisive, return to lacking empathy, return to feeling privileged over others, return to disrespect?

    There isn’t a liberal media goofball.
    There is only a corporate media. The media is a part of the establishment.
    We only have 2 corporate parties left in this country. 1 is ok with minorities, gays, abortion and the other isn’t.
    Other than that they agree on everything.

    "1 is ok with minorities, gays"? Why can't you admit you think the political right is a bunch of bigots. We can't have an honest conversation until you do.

    See there, punking me? Disrespecting me? I'm a grown dang man. Fought for this country. Seen some horrific sights in doing so and you still want to treat me like a child. Sir, I would love for us to fix our disagreements. But when you treat me that way, we can't get there. All I'm asking for is honesty.

    Thank you for your service as well. I wish everyone understood the meaning of "freedom is not free". It's not just a bumper sticker.

    Well stated " my brother in arms" with the true meaning of " brother in arms" that is the creed of the military, now defiled by many and forgotten as the " last bastion of freedom"

    Relax man. Its not that serious. First I'd like to thank you for your service. I love members of our military and wish our country did more to thank them and support them once they come back. I disagree with the people in power and our non stop needs to have us in a state of perpetual war. I see a government that sends Americans in harms way for reasons I don't agree with...But that's a convo for another day.

    Do I think the political right are a bunch of racist was the question... The answer isn't a simple yes or no. I don't think everyone who is a republican is a racist. That would be narrow minded of me. I believe many republicans are good people. The problem is our system of government is an all or nothing game. Take the evangelicals as an example. The traditionally side with the republican party due to their feelings about abortions and gay marriage. So they are using a social hot button topic to determine who they are voting for and the reality is the actual politicians in the party will and can't do much about these 2 issues. What they can change is economics. So now you have a religious person who voted in a party that is do nothing for the religious agenda yet is doing plenty to work against the economic beliefs of many Christians. For example tax cuts for the rich in a country with such economic inequality. The Pope has spoken out about these things. Or taking healthcare away from millions of people isn't a very Christian like thing to do... Also senior citizen are voting for a party that is actively working to cut Social Security benefits and is responsible for gutting Medicare from 100% to 80%.
    So the point is most people who vote republican do not actually agree with the parts of the republican party that can be changed. They use social hot buttons to win votes they don't deserve and then work against the majority of the people that voted for them.

    Our government is flawed in that it has a somewhat redundant Senate and Congress when we would be better served if 1 branch of the government voted only for Social or Non economic issues and the other branch could only vote for economic policies. As it is now you have decent people on both sides electing representatives who are not truly representing the will of the people. They muck it up with stuff they cant change and force people to pick sides. Its a fatal flaw and allows us to be manipulated.

    So back to racism... I do believe a person who is racist will almost always vote with the political right...however, I do not believe voting for the political right makes someone a racist.
    Btw...the Dems do the same thing just on the other side.

    The reality is that public support has ZERO impact on policy. ZERO. What we want doesn't matter until we happen to want what the Donor class wants. Money has corrupted our government beyond belief.

    Thanks again for your service.

    I ran across this and was looking for more evidence. Anybody hear about this.

    "One of my friend's son is working as an usher at the Packers-Bears game tonight. He said that there were so many empty seats that they brought people from the upper levels down to fill seats and then told the camera men to only focus on the lower levels to show how "packed" the stadium was"

    If this and the OP's link above are true, this one sided agenda BS needs to stop. Both sides of this needs to be covered fairly.
    Yeah, like that is going to happen.

    Where'd you run across that quote?

    No offense to you, but it sounds like a classic fake propaganda story one might find on Facebook.

    Also, did you watch the game? It was a strange one between the rain delay and the injury, so it's strange that none of that was mentioned.

    90% of journalist / media campaign donations went to the Democrat party. If that isn't definitive proof of a liberal media, I don't know what is.

    The other 10% probably came from people who work at Fox News etc.. lol

    There's a liberal media and a conservative media. There's really very little debating that fact.

    As for the bolded part, you seem to paint a lot of folks with the same broad brush. I'm a conservative and have no issue with gays, minorities, trannies, nannies or anyone else. People can live their life as they choose as long as they give me the same courtesy.

    I found that on a news media forum.
    It seems to follow the same premise as the OP's link.
    Been searching, haven't found anything similar.

    Didn't watch the game last night, but their broadcast wouldn't cover that. It wouldn't follow in line with the league's stance.
    I'm staying away from other games and trying to only follow my Boys through the game thread at the Zone, but it's killing me.

    That's what they want you to believe. The "liberal media" is really just the Corporate Establishment media. They are not true liberals or progressives. They are corporatist. MSNBC for example fired their top rated show Phil Donahue because he was anti war. Check out the interview with Cenk Uyger on why he left MSNBC and what his bosses told him then come back and tell me their is a liberal media. We have 2 corporate parties and the media is the propaganda wing of each party.

    Liberals, true liberals, are not represented on any major main stream media network.
    You need to look past the fox news vs cnn bullcrap and realize that both sides are establishment corporatist who are acting as propaganda wings of the Democratic and Republican establishment.
    Both media outlets create and push story that are nothing more than distractions from the real issues Americans have. How much time did any main stream media outlet spend cover Standing Rock and the crimes that were being committed against the protesters? Any media that was liberal and not corporatist would have sent reporters to cover what was happening in SD. Instead they pushed a bull crap Russia red scare narrative to avoid having to talk about the real reasons Trump beat Hillary...

    There isn't a liberal party left. Barack Obama took a heritage foundation Romney Care plan and killed the public option, he expanded our military reach and started bombing 6 different countries without having to declare war, he made Bush's tax cuts permanent, the Democrats went against their own party values and voted to ban importation of prescription drugs from Canada, Obama and Hillary were pro TPP, Bill Clinton reformed welfare and threw millions off of benefits, He exploded the prison population and had a back room agreement to gut Social Security that thank god fell through due to a republican....
    So there is no liberal media because the democratic party is more conservative in policies than Ronald Regan was.
