The CNN ALL STARS VS “FAIR AND BALANCED” FOX
Anyone else fed up with panels of all the same ilk trashing the absent opponents?
How about the admonishments of “…don’t anyone say anything about politics!”
NO CONVERSATION OR DISCUSSION, EQUALS NO COMPROMISE, EQUALS STAGNATION, EQUALS “DO NOTHING” POLITICIANS DO NOTHING.
Our 17 year “longest war”seems to have no ending? It had a beginning! It got vitriolic
when ‘W”and his gang burned up a budget surplus by writing their war “off the books”.
Speaking of admonishments, how about “…don’t go in there (the mid-east.) You will own it!” —PoppaBush and Scocroft.
Six trillion in deficit spending jump started the hemorrhaging of cash that is now 22 trillion of national debt. (no blood mentioned).
Soon the lines were drawn.
Being from the sports world, we settled it head on. Coaching tennis for forty years, the format we used was 6-3. Six singles matches, three doubles matches. Match wins count one point. Lineups in order of ability.
Example: One head to head would look something like this:
FOX TEAM VS CNN
#1 male player from Fox vs #1male player from CNN
#1 woman player from Fox vs #1woman player from CNN
#2 Male Fox VS # 2 male player from CNN
#2 WOMAN VS #2 WOMAN
These are your six singles matches or points. now
#1 twosome men from fox vs #1 twosome men from CNN.
#1 or best women’s doubles from fox, vs same from CNN
Note the next match often determines the winner in tight matches.
This match then will be a mixed doubles match (one man plays with one woman).
This could get messy. Mixed doubles is a lot like warfare. So be it.
