Unreal... TC is an idiot and Fox News in general with the exception of Greta VanSusteren is full of hacks trying to pass themselves off as journalists... However it never ceases to amaze me that with all the crap going on in the world and things to get bent over.. this kind nonsense brings these kinds of responses out of people... and to make matters worse the guy starts out his statement with "I'm a Christian..." and in the same breath calls for the execution of a human being for a crime committed against a dog. And people wonder why Christianity gets such a bad rap in this country..

Note the entire way that this whole story is spun. As if the President took time out of his day.. with all his other responsibilities to call this guy and tell him how great he thinks Vick is... That's the general spin.. and like most of what comes out of Fox News it is a distortion at best and an outright lie at it's worst.

The President was not making a public statement.. he was having a private conversation.. neither did he make the call to Lurie with the express purpose of praising him for giving Vick a second chance.. The call was made to discuss Lurie's plans to use alternative energy technology at his stadium... and what that example could do to stimulate more such things in the country and thereby the economy... by creating more demand for such technology and therefore jobs.. etc... but of course the only thing this rabid media and those schmucks over at Fux News in particular can see is that he had the temerity to open his mouth period..

It totally blows my mind that whatever this man does someone will jump on it and blow it all out of proportion... Even though in this case, the president said that what Vick did was wrong, and only praised Lurie for having the guts and heart to give him a second chance.. not Vick (There may have been some football kudos.. after all the guy is ballin..) Those detractors who probably would criticize the way he sleeps if they could get in his bedroom still manage to twist it and turn it into something that it isn't. The average unthinking person who hangs on every word coming from Fox and it's like probably thinks based on the reporting, that that was the reason why the president called Lurie.. just to give kudos to Michael Vick, who by the way DOES indeed deserve a second chance... If I had never gotten a second chance in my life .. I might not be here today... granted I didn't kill any animals that I wasn't going to eat or wear..

The nature of what passes for journalism in the U.S. has sunk to such depths of utter nonsense and the fact that for the most part.. the general public doesn't even dig it... is just mind boggling. Fux News is fair and balanced and Kieth Olberman is a genius... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I haven't seen much other than these two clips but there is one talking head on Fox that seems to have a shred of sanity (again, based on these two clips).

This first video is the reason why I have been acting to raise awareness of this issue, it is a direct threat to the first amendment by the very government sworn to uphold that amendment.

Sadly, President Obama is damned if he does damned if he didn't regarding the Vick comments. This report displays the gulf between us citizens - that we'd shore up our proverbial sides and biases based on off handed personal conversations and comments.


Personally, if any comments were to be made by the president regarding an ex-felon getting a second chance to turn his life around, I'd have rather it been made about someone who DIDN'T have every advantage Vick had.

He went from privilege to privilege with a break in between. He paid his due, so I'm glad for him, but.........

Considering that Heinz Field was built in 99 I don't know if they have one... and that is not the point... The point is .... so what... All the man said was kudos for giving the guy a second chance.. I think he would have said that under the circumstances regardless to who it was if Lurie did what he did just with another person... any other person who seemed to genuinely want to pardon the pun take the ball and run with the second chance given...

This is not new... the President has said all along that felons who have paid their debt to society and are honestly and diligently working to turn their life around should be afforded the opportunity to do so.. not that they should be marked for the rest of their lives and denied a livelihood... which is what many were calling for for Vick.

This wasn't about Vick.. until the media made it about Vick..

All the man said was something to the effect of "It's great that you decided to give the guy a second chance..." I for one am glad that Vick is making the best of it and I hope that he has learned his lesson... but it is interesting that all this brohuha over the president saying that Lurie did the right thing... but ... this is more of a brohuha than when... Lurie made it know he was going to give Vick that chance... ... that's how a$$inine this whole thing is.... If ANYONE other than President Obama had said this it wouldn't even be news.... and mind you... he never said... "Well I thought he got a raw deal anyway..." or anything even remotely resembling that... and as I stated.... that was not the sole purpose of the call... It probably wasn't even on the radar.. It was probably mentioned off the cuff in relation to the great season that the Eagles are having... and the president loves sports... if you think he isn't at least aware of what's going on you are mistaken... but people make thios sound like President Obama woke up and said... "Man... those Eagles are really playing great... I think I'll call the team owner and congratulate him for picking up Mike Vick... " That wasn't what happened at all. THAT spin is the issue that I have with the whole way that this is being covered... Many didn't even know that Rothslesberger was charged with rape... or that this was the second time... but you can bet.. had that been Vick.. or Ray Lewis.. or just about any other player in the NFL who came from the inner city... it would have been all over the media 24/7 for weeks up until and probably after the trial... with Fox News leading the way....

as for the advantages he had... That's debatable.. I am sure that it was some of those "advantages" that crippled his wayward brother... and also contributed to his attitude that caused him to commit the last of his crimes in the first place.. We make our own decisions.. Mike Vick chose to rise above his circumstances and start making better choices.. his brother failed to make those choices when the time was right... I say good on Mike Vick.. and I wish him all the best... I am glad that I am not painted for the rest of my life with some of the dumb stuff I did when I was younger.. and some of it could have radically changed my life... but it is all about choices... and we all have them no matter what hand life deals us.. Some of make good ones and some of us make bad ones... but we all deserve the opportunity to overcome the bad ones...

I've seen another example of this same kind of thing. Obama gave a whole speech and one or two lines were taken out of context and spun into a whole new anti-America meaning completely opposite of the speech and the lines within the speech. But it wasn't just Faux that ran that, it was a whole group of "journalists" that ran the exact same words and spin.
Someone goes over every little bit they can get about the Obamas and pulls out bits and pieces to use, then it's disseminated to be repeated from many second-hand "sources". The seeming 'agreement' gives the lie that 'must be true because everyone says so' appeal that stupid people trust so well that they won't believe different even when shown the actual truth later on, they made up their minds before the lie that confirms they were right all along! And of course, they are the 'moral majority' so they -can't be wrong-!

What I have trouble grasping is -- Julian Assange is Australian, so how TF is what he has done treason to the United States?
How whack-tard <can't-say> stupid is it that whole spin and yet... there's people who buy into it?

That's what kind of 'news' I see from the far right. No matter how many or their lies are exposed, they just keep going.

You DID notice the devil horns regarding my Rothlesberger comment, didn't ya?

I also said President Obama is damned one way or the other. I understand it was a personal comment made in private and as such has a total different weight to it than a published comment or speech. BUT... if this was a private conversation, then why was it brought out to the open? Who did it? The media can't report until there's something to report. Their decision to run a non story lends to their incredibility.

I think the owner of the Eagles took quite a lot of flak for hiring Vick. More than President Obama? I think so. But, I also think this story is another straw on the camels back that just adds to the negative press he gets.

I knew this was Rothlesberger's 2nd offense. He shouldn't be playing ball, unless it's on a jail yard field. I remember quite a bit of press regarding him. More than Vick? IDK. I thought it was pretty intense media scrutiny on both of them. If memory serves me right his dog fighting came not too far off the heels of a marijuana possession - that was hid in a false topped drink cup. He was already under scrutiny. Compiling the dog incident and the pot one might make it seem he was unfairly targeted. IMO, he was just stupid and got caught. He's a media star of sorts, and as such gets no different reportage than say Lidsay Lohan...???

Regarding Vick and his life of privilege? He worked hard to get where he was. Who knows how I'd react if my life situation was like his? But I got news for ya We ALL have issues to overcome in life, and how we overcome life's obstacles makes us who we are. He's no different than you, me and everyone of 6 billion people. He's only fortunate enough to go from a multi million dollar salary to............ to............. oh wait....... ANOTHER multi million dollar salary.

I give far more credit to someone who did his time and has to work hard from virtually nothing to someone who's upstanding and productive.

I'm glad for Vick. I have no problem with him, but let's not fool ourselves. His unique talent is a commodity to make money - one that ushered a very quick return to the NFL. Most felons don't get that kind of second chance. As an aside since you mentioned it: No one was denying Vick the right to a livelihood. He could work Burger King.... Janitorial services... Go to school... Start a company... Make widgets and become RICH.

To many (rightly or wrongly) it seemed like a reward to be playing in the NFL, especially since no other felons come out to such a cushy job and have to scrape just to start to get by.

The comment about denying Vick a livelihood is severely misguided.


THAT SAID.... It was a private conversation and as such I know I'm being a bit pedantic in my posts and they only slightly parallel the reason for this topic - LOUSY MEDIA.

What I wonder is if Vick wanted to have a hobby like dogfighting, why he didn't choose a place outside the states to pursue it. Since he's already rich, he could've gone to Mexico and started the business as a silent partner and nobody know anything about it. Same thing for the Philippines, he could've set himself up a money-making business in the rural areas. Same thing for Sabong, if he wanted to do that too. Instead of that, he chose to set up a business here in the U.S. where stuff like that is not only severely frowned upon with the consequent bad publicity, it is illegal. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

There is market democracy, the people who think he should never play pro ball again can just boycott games he plays in and suck it up if he doesn't get kicked out. People can support him as easily as others try to tear him down, it's just a matter of spreading the word, hey?

I saw a few in Louisiana when I was around that age that some of my relatives took us kids to. Even then, I thought it was such a waste of two good animals for nothing except for a bunch of folks to make money. Too much blood, barking, adult men and teenagers all yelling. I got asked if I wanted to go see some more and I would make up excuses not to go. I have nothing personal against Vick. He did what he did for his own reasons. I don't watch or follow pro sports because it never was a game to me in the first place. It's an entrenched business where if you make it big time, you stay in it and make as much money as you can for as long as you can. It's just another job to make a living. I just think that he made a bad decision to run a dogfighting business here in the states, that's all. Since he broke the law and was caught and convicted, he pays his debt and then goes on with his life after he gets free. He shouldn't get hammered on after that, or get used as a political weapon in order to hit someone else who has nothing to do with it. Our President has more important stuff he has to deal with without getting sidetracked by something like this. Like others have said, everything he says, done or will do in the future will be the wrong thing.

The comment about denying Vick a livelihood is severely misguided.



Not you.. I should have been more clear sorry.. I didnt mean that you made the comment... but I listen to a lot of talk radio.. and even on the networks.. I have heard so many folks say that "He should never be allowed to play football again....!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif "

That's what I meant.. not you... and as far as Ben goes... It wasn't covered with the same intnesity that the Vick story was.. at least not here in the D.C. Metro area... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>


Thanks. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Ben? I felt he was covered about equally with Vick up here in MA. To be truthful, I thought people were madder about the dog fighting than the bar room antics. But the coverage was pretty intense with a lot of negativity pointed at both athletes.

What I wonder is if Vick wanted to have a hobby like dogfighting, why he didn't choose a place outside the states to pursue it. Since he's already rich, he could've gone to Mexico and started the business as a silent partner and nobody know anything about it. Same thing for the Philippines, he could've set himself up a money-making business in the rural areas. Same thing for Sabong, if he wanted to do that too. Instead of that, he chose to set up a business here in the U.S. where stuff like that is not only severely frowned upon with the consequent bad publicity, it is illegal. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Much like sex tourism to places like Mexico (with age of consent of 12) before sex tourism became illegal for Americans with the introduction of the Protect Act in 2003.

Its an interesting legal point as to whether an American could be charged under US animal cruelty legislation for acts committed outside the United States.

I think that Bearcat's "Fux News" is much more apt.
It accurately describes every commentator on it, after all. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Thank you for your correction.

Yup, that's certainly more accurate isn't it? Bearcat has a great way with words doesn't he ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Faux being French for -Fake- helps to understand half the pun. The other half you might say is American.

Perhaps my fellow countrymen missed this, er, interesting take on recent events in "Ye Olde England" from Fox.

I'll make no comment other than it reminds me of this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Der_schwarze_Kanal)

I am sure this was a crown jewel of CIA's disinformation campaign attempting to cause confusion, dismay, and hysteria among the unruly G8 direct action types. Note how it is breezily presented as a news story, but more sinisterly, it attempts to suggest there is a budding tea party movement in the UK. I assume cognoscenti see through the cunning ruse and yet another attempt to impose the hegemonic Cheney World Project being run out of D--K's duck blind outside of Cheyenne. Anyway, the vigilant have foiled all the lineaments of fascist desire (to borrow from Jolly Old Blake). Another example of superb Chekist police work.
