Buck, regarding the newspapers you mention above, you raise a good point, I get a bit tired of hearing warped media accounts of certain events.

But if the government forces the papers to cover both sides equally isn't this somehow stifling the freedom of expression of the newpapers? Government dictation sounds a bit to strong.

The point I'm trying to make is that the Republican Party was demanding equal time from the TV stations for the Paul Wellstone Memorial ie pep rally. They wanted free ad time. Your lawyer can accept money from you, and may have his doubts about your innocence, but at the summanations he can't just say oh Hell he's guilty. See my point. When you buy ad time you are entering into a contract aren't you. I guess every one who buys ad time needs to specify that by selling them time you must stay netrual. How would that work?

Well I guess if that is what makes you happy then happy name calling, I find more humor in laughing at the stupidity of other.
