Dan Rather complaining about media bias. My irony detector just blew a fuse.
You do know what a true believer is right Pwns..?
A true believer doesn't understand hypocrisy when applied to themselves

:lol:

Ah, the failed whataboutism/he did it as well.

If Rather has a bias of 10, Fox/Sinclair has a bias of 10,000. Not even in the same ballpark.

I see the JSO relativism is rubbing off on others

Degrees of bias are irrelevant in the media - it really is a "yes or no", "on or off", "black or white" issue. Either you are, or you aren't. Bias in the media (outside of editorializing) is poison, period.

Just like a lack of ethics on the part of Presidential candidates.

So a female shot up the YouTube HQ today.

One of my liberal female "friends" posted, "Another day, another mass shooting" with three crying emojis.

I posted, "Thank God she didn't use an axe like her predecessors".

Because I said so.

My people were here before yours, at least by a couple of weeks, so I am invoking my privilege.

Turns out the police questioned her the night before..

"The night before Nasim Aghdam opened fire in a courtyard at YouTube’s headquarters Tuesday afternoon, Mountain View police found the San Diego woman sleeping in her car.

She had been reported missing by her family in Southern California, and her father Ismail Aghdam told police she might be going to YouTube because she “hated” the company. Police called the family at 2 a.m. Tuesday to say she’d been found and that everything was “under control,” her father said.

But hours later, his daughter was dead of a self-inflicted gunshot after shooting three people and causing an afternoon of terror at YouTube’s headquarters.

In an interview Tuesday night with the Bay Area News Group, Ismail Aghdam said his 38-year-old daughter told her family a couple of weeks ago that YouTube had been censoring her videos and stopped paying her for her content. “She was angry,” he said in an interview from his Riverside County home.

It wasn’t clear Tuesday night what Mountain View police knew about her history with YouTube.

A police spokeswoman confirmed that officers had found a woman of the same name asleep in a vehicle early Tuesday morning in a parking lot.

“Our officers made contact with the woman after the license plate of her vehicle matched that of a missing person out of Southern California,” said Mountain View Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.

“The woman confirmed her identity to us and answered subsequent questions. At the conclusion of our discussion, her family was notified that she had been located.”

Ismail Aghdam said his daughter was a vegan activist and animal lover. As a youngster, she would not even kill ants that invaded the family home, instead using paper to remove them to the back yard, he said. State records show she had once established a charity called Peace Thunder Inc., to “educate people about animal cruelty, environmental pollution” and other causes.

“For me, animal rights equal human rights,” Aghdam told the San Diego Union-Tribune at a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals protest in 2009 outside Camp Pendleton.


She told her family that YouTube had stopped paying her for the content she posted to the site, Ismail Aghdam said. YouTubers can receive payment for advertisements accompanying their videos, but the company “de-monetizes” some channels for various reasons, meaning ads don’t run with them.

Aghdam was prolific on social media, posting videos and photos on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube. Her YouTube channel included strange workout video clips, graphic animal abuse videos and vegan cooking tutorials. But recent posts show evidence of her growing frustration.

Aghdam’s YouTube, Facebook and Instagram pages were all taken down late Tuesday, but not before reporters from this news organization were able to view much of the material....

.....On one of her many websites, she claims to have at least four YouTube channels, one in English, and then others in Farsi and Turkish.....

The family came to California from Iran in 1996,Shahran said.
