Let's keep the focus on the topic at hand... The Incident in Paris, rather than a debate on the political leanings of various media sources.

If the discussion continues to stray, the thread will be closed.

And they dont sugar coat their allegiance and purpose.

I prefer what I had linked earlier...not Fox and hope you can stand to even think about Radio Free Europe

Muslim Press Reacts To Charlie Hebdo Attack

I am shocked at a link to Media Matters from anyone professing that Fox or anything was not fair....this is about as left wing as you can get....but thats ok.....just stunned at the hypocrisy !

In actuality, your post is definitely of the political nature and does not fit what has been a pretty non p........ discussion of this tragedy

Default 12 killed in Paris by extreme Islamists.

All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.

By the way, the conversation on being politically correct needs this to be filed with it...

"A California newspaper recently used the word “illegals,” upsetting some that apparently don’t like the word “illegals” to be used when referring to undocumented immigrants that are living in the United States illegally. In protest, those disagreeing with the California newspaper’s decision to use “illegals” got a hold of some red spray paint and graffitied the newspaper office’s exterior walls, painting, “The border is illegal not the people who cross it.”

As an added bonus, the anti “illegals” vandals also spray painted a smiley face with “fight back” written above, and punctuated the project with splattered paint ball projectiles."

A few years ago every member of our department was required by the police administration to attend training on dealing with undocumented immigrants. The trainer was a person who was telling us we shouldn't use term " illegal alien". The trainer got really upset when one of the officers asked her if we should title bank robbery reports as unauthorized withdrawals ,lol.
