    Not really the way we wanted to make the news, but it looks like it's gonna be a costly lesson for someone.

    This was a story that caused a lot of flap right after September 11, but has within the last 2 days come back to the forefront.

    What do you all think of this?

    Too lenient?

    Too harsh?

    Was the station's news director at fault or is the legislature being a bully?

    Remember that thing on NiteLine a few weeks back about Kelly Wilson and Gilmer, Texas. The supposed "Devil Worshipping" and cult practices? Well, that's the town I live near. Want to talk about how to make the news? The entire country thinks that this town is a demonic, satan worshipping town. What a drag.

    Anytime I read a journalism professor flapping his gums about "unbiased journalism" I have to laugh...

    This guy was SO ARROGANT in his reasoning, too! [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    I'm not sure if anyone else sees the logic behind what this guy says, but can you just imagine the audactiy to come out with a policy to not be able to wear patriotic colors on your lapel while on camera because you don't want to offend anyone? You don't want to show any "bias" toward anyone???

    How can this be??? We're Americans for pete's sake and some scumbag militant group of dirtbags just flew 3 planes into national landmarks and a 4th was stopped short of reaching IT'S target. And WE'RE the ones who don't want to offend anyone??? [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    By the way, there doesn't seem to be any policy of showing a "bias" toward the Missouri Tigers whenever their sportscasters are on the air.

    Hmmmm...isn't this showing a bias against Kansas whenever we play the Jayhawks?

    "Oh, but we're part of the University of Missouri."

    YEAH, BUT YOU'RE ALSO PART OF THE UNITED STATES, MORON! [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img]

    It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out.

    why be ashamed of your country's flags?

    the flags of the major countries - ie USA , UK etc symbolise the blood , sweat & tears that our forefathers poured into making our countries what they are today..!

    Seems to be some subversive plot to try & destroy peoples pride in their national identity-
    AND IT SUCKS
