Objective by Whose Standards?
Because it's only "objective" when you agree with us:
On the air they told me that I was no longer objective. I was too stunned to defend myself effectively. I said something like: "I've always had a point of view. How come you had no trouble with that when I criticized business?"
In hindsight, I wish I'd said: "Look at the title on the wall, you hypocrites! It shows you have a point of view, too. Many reporters do. You just don't like my arguments now that I no longer hew to your statist line. So you want to shut me up."
But I didn't.
So I'll say it now: Reporters who think coercive government control is generally good and I, who think voluntary market forces are generally better, both have a point of view.
So why am I the one called biased?
I like what "Americans for Prosperity" defends. I'm an American, and I'm for prosperity. What creates prosperity is free and competitive markets. That means limited government.
And I will speak about that every chance I get.

Welcome to the club, John. Might I be so bold as to suggest that you prepare yourself for the ad hominem attacks you can expect, and learn to appreciate, when you leave the dark side and step into the light?
Lesson #1; When you speak 'blasphemy' against the cherished beliefs of the perpetual whiners you automatically become inelegible for protection under their interpretation of the first ammendment.

I saw his say that on one of the FNC shows the other day. Couldn't agree with him more on that...

Makes sense to me...

Reactions from the Dems to the Dem losses in the VA and NJ governors' races:
"It didn't go our way," said DNC Chairman Tim Kaine.
"From our perspective, we won last night," said Nancy Pelosi.
Objectivity in action...
