Bill Maher on John Stewarts FALSE EQUIVALENCY Nov 5, 2010

Comment by Ryan E. Hoffman on November 6, 2010 at 4:03pm
You know... I don't think it's false equivalency to say that the news inspires fear. It's an old quote, "There's no news like bad news." Stewart's point that all media inspires fear is not false equivalence. Saying that Olberman is Glenn Beck is. But that's not what Jon Stewart said. A little bit of a strawman by KO and Maher here.

He has a strong point, that rally was vague back patting and literally did and said nothing of substance.

He is right and wrong.. >.> really really biased. People need to get together in a group other than work and go to get drunk or party..People need to learn how to assemble and I think thats what the rally was really about.. Could be wrong but people do need to assemble and learn how to stand up for some rights. That aren't religious and aren't conservative.

Not quite sure why there is a petition for Olberman. He broke the rules that NBC set out for him, therefore he was punished accordingly. In a world where there are the extremes of Fox news there must be stations that stay true to their convictions. MSNBC is one of the most left leaning stations on television, and in return for the leway their pundits have, they need to follow certain rules the station sets out for them. This isn't as if he mispoke and they are reacting to outrage, this is them trying to show that unlike Fox they try to maintain an impartial political influence. To critize the hypocrites you must in turn not be hypocritical.

Olberman is coming back to MSNBC this week having suffered enough for the three donations to Democratic congressmen according to a recent MSNBC announcement. The question is whether a few days suspension was worth the damage to MSNBC and Olberman. You are right though, MSNBC is trying to be a better news channel than Fox and rules must be followed.
