    3:10 "tries to present the best possible versions of competing arguments." Yeah right. I think what he meant to say is, the media has a bias, as do we all, and we are trying to PUSH the narrative that best represents OUR bias while trying to look impartial.

    I would love to be able to use Charlie’s line at my own place of employment in the defense of a very good friend and have the indispensability to get away with it!!!

    2:01 where the senile moron tries to threaten violence is where he gets fired. Getting his panties in a bunch over the term ratings whore just shows that he doesn't even know the jargon of his shitty trade. Really shitty moronic writing by Sorkin.

    Everything I see in these two scenes tells me that it isn't Will who is the ratings whore, it's Reese … and Reese can't bring himself to admit that 1) he is and 2) that what Will and McKenzie are doing WORKS.

    And it'll take until Season Three for him to wake up and smell the Folgers.

  • Essentially the last moment of worthwhile television on news that the show did. After this, it was all 'personal drama' ad nauseum. Like if the West Wing were to have centered itself entirely around Josh/Donna and Sam/hooker crap, instead of what it became known for.

    You still refuse to answer my question. Look this is the last time I am going to bother replying to this. I don't have to wonder if you are right or wrong about the term racism being "white" specific because I know it isn't. The neighborhood where I grew up had serious gang problems. One of the major problems was and to a lesser degree now still is "white" vs "Mexican" conflict. Both sides driven by ignorant racist prejudice and both equally wrong. This I know first hand to be true.

    First of all, I'm not anti anyone. I am of mixed heritage but most do simply call me white. The truth of the matter is really quite simple: People are people, all racism is created equal, and anti racist is not anti white because only an absolute fool thinks that all racists are whites who hate others. You also didn't answer my question. What "white" are you talking about? British, Irish, German, Scottish, what? What are you talking about?

  • Not sure what that comment has to do with anything on this page but could you please define for the rest of us what a white country is? China is filled with Chinese and Ethiopia is filled with Ethiopians and America is filled with Americans. Some of those Chinese, Ethiopians, and Americans my be of various mixed heritage but that doesn't make them any less of what they are. And beside all that there is the fact that there are a lot of different kinds of "white." What kind do you mean?
