You used a nuttier left wing news site who are bias against conservatives like LoBaidio. That site has a bias against conservatives. They even say that they are a "watchdog" against the conservative new media. That stinks of a left-wing bias. Did you read wh is supporting them? Left leaning sites and organizations

This is their mission:

What's the ConWeb?
The focus of ConWebWatch is what I collectively call the ConWeb -- large, well-funded, Internet-based conservative "news" organizations NewsMax, WorldNetDaily and CNSNews.com. I also look at conservative media "watchdogs" Media Research Center and Accuracy in Media, as well as the MRC's NewsBusters blog.

Millions of dollars have been poured into the creation and promotion of these conservative web sites, with money coming from such sources as Richard Mellon Scaife and the usual armada of conservative foundations.

Additionally, conservative talk radio hosts often use these conservative news sites as sources of topics to discuss on their shows, giving the slanted, distorted and, on occasion, just plain inaccurate stories that appear on these sites an even greater audience.

The goal of ConWebWatch is to document the distortions, excesses and hypocrisy of these conservative media sites. Using their own words, ConWebWatch hoists the conservative media on the petard of hypocrisy, accuracy and objectivity.

The JREF (http://randi.org) has no political affiliation -- but why would the politic bias of LoBaido (or the political bias of any person, for that matter) have any bearing on the existence of paranormal phenomena anyway? I'm afraid the connection escapes me.

You are attacking the persons political beliefs by using ConWebWatch.Admit it you do not like him because he is a conservative.

They are funded by Media Matters. Here is some info on Media Matters:

Media Matters for America (or MMfA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2004 by journalist and author David Brock. Media Matters for America describes itself as "a web-based, not-for-profit, progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media." Media Matters for America defines "conservative misinformation" as "news or commentary presented in the media that is not accurate, reliable, or credible and that forwards the conservative agenda

Ah, I see. You're confused. http://randi.org is not a left-wing news site; it's not a news site. They do not say that they are "watchdog" of any kind, let alone against any kind of media -- conservative, new, or otherwise.

From the site:

"The James Randi Educational Foundation is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1996. Its aim is to promote critical thinking by reaching out to the public and media with reliable information about paranormal and supernatural ideas so widespread in our society today."

I recommend it to you.

I thought you were talking about http://randi.org -- which I again recommend heartily

Im spent. Youre a libbie and you cannot run away from it. You attacked a writer because of his politics not for what he wrote and used a political site which was biased.Your personal politics has clouded your judgement.

Respectfully, eaglewingone, you know nothing about my politics; but as you've chosen to attack me, I'll bow out. Good luck and goodbye.
