Uh… academics consider Rock ‘n’ Roll to be a (large) sub-genre of Pop music.

When did it turn into a good thing to deprive your kid(s) of knowing what work is?

> so many people say truth doesn’t exist or is unknowable?.That has a lot to do with it! .I think that idea is promoted by monied interests (Right and Left) who believe it makes it easier to manipulate us..Fun fact: most millionaires are Conservative; most billionaires are Liberal.
Uh… most of the time..I’ll take your word about one program, which I haven’t seen in years. What does it prove?.> only Right wingnut GOP view a Liberal…media.Simple: Liberals view anyone who sees the “mainstream media” as Liberal as a Right Wingnut. Objectively, surveys show that news reporters (excepting Fox) vote more than 95% Democrat..You wanna argue with the numbers? Go right ahead. Or go left ahead.
What part of “most of the time” is a problem for you?.Sure, they’re whores enough that getting big ratings trumps ideology, but for run-of-the mill, day-to-day reporting, the ideology shows through clearly..Fox news shows you everything major the President does, even if it’s a good move. The Liberals do the same.
> Still, intentionally slanted reporting is dishonest, no matter who does it..Amen, Brother. That’s why I only watch or listen to broadcast “news” by accident..When I want news, I read the NYT and WSJ. Then I can usually figure out what really happened by splitting the difference.
> Someone tried to have a left network like faux news, it didn’t work out..That’s because there was so much overlap with most network news, there was little reason for anyone to switch.
It’s like the North Pole and the South Pole fighting about who’s closer to the equator..The only purpose is to make the far-polarized rally around their favorite, and to entertain the rest of us.
Only someone far-off on the Liberal/Democrat end would think the U.S. media is not, most of the time, securely Liberal..Only someone far-off on the Conservative/Republican end would think Fox news is not, most of the time, securely Conservative..The fight is really about which is closer to the center. They are both, usually, pretty remote.

I often wonder about the people who don’t seem to get “humor” commenting on a comic strip..Hey, that’s funny!
