    Potential government shutdown: How would the U.S. media report on it if it were happening to another country?

    What t_co probably fails to understand is that US news media completely followed Obama's lead in its reporting of those events.

    You know Obama wants to be president of China, right?

    Somehow all of that fails to be "hilarious" from my point of view.

    If you want to address me, use the "mention" function. I hate sneaks.

    Obviously I was addressing t_co since his banner post is "US media (pro government) bias." To that I said they should listen to Foxnews. In your case I don't have to give the same advice anymore, I know you're always hanging on to every Fox news "reporting" against Obama.

    Enjoyed the article, but disappointed to note that it was written by an American on a US medium and not a Chinese. Self criticism is allowed in America - so Americans criticizing America are like Indians criticizing India - so common that it's not particularly noteworthy.

    But if a Chinese wrote an article like this about China and it was allowed in China - that would be something. The fact that it cannot happen is hilarious.

    Only an idiot makes assumptions about what another DFI member does, and only an anonymous coward would post such an opinion in this forum.

    Slate articles, John Stewart videos, whatever. The point is US media includes different points of view. All Chinese news media is government controlled.

    Exactly right, yet the Chinese termites continue to swarm endlessly on DFI.

    I do not believe you have ever watched Fox News, but like others here who squawk about it you only believe what somebody else has told you.

    In fact, Fox News has several people who will defend Obama consistently, Bob Beckle and Juan Williams being two.

    On the subject of Obama, I really enjoyed this opinion piece:

    The Front Man | National Review Online
    More at the link.

    I thought that was hilarious.
