It didn't happen to that great of an extent in New Orleans, either, if that's the bait you're using to fish.

When will the state-controlled media be airing the George Clooney telethon for the citizens of Tennessee? I would like to set my DVR.

How exactly is it true? There still is a Fox News Channel right? There are still many Conservative talk radio shows no? There are still Conservative newspapers and magazines, or did Obama come in and shut all these things down while I was sleeping?

Please...... Republicans still have the same voice in the media as they did under Boy Blunder. You can cry about "state controlled media" and play the role of the ostrich, but it doesn't make the claim true. It's bullshit, total unabashed bullshit.

Agree. Conservative media has made such inroads I think the state controlled media is dead and buried. At this point those who want a liberal spin know where to find it, those that want a conservative spin know where to find it. It is the truth that is being blurred, and hard to find.

I prefer knowing that a media station is a shill, more like back in the founding days when bias was known and not so frowned upon...

Edit to add:
...and morons watch MTV. Really it is the people that are uninformed that typically stumble into Network news, and are more easily lead by popular culture. That still tends to lean very much to the left IMO.

In our break room we don't put up the dough for cable TV. We get 3 stations on the tube: ABC, NBC, CBS. I can sit and watch 90 minutes of these national telecasts and not find one conservative opinion. Meanwhile, I am inundated with praise for Obama.

During all that hubbub about the "digital transition" it said in the PD that 20-25% of people don't have cable/satellite. So that's a pretty large segment of the population that--if they choose to watch the news--are receiving a liberal interpretation of the day's "news".

Who the hell takes a 90 minute break?

Maybe you should ask your employers to have a seperate but equal tv set you can put on FNC. ;-) ;) :wink:

And for those 20-25% without Cable TV, can't they tune into AM radio where Conservative talking heads dominate?

Conservatives with or without cable TV aren't going to be swayed by ABC, CBS, or NBC....

You can't cry "state controlled media" when there are so many Conservative options out there. It just doesn't work.

The original poster does not assume that.

The original poster is merely using sarcasm as a device to compare and contrast

The original poster is impressed that there are not such reports.

The original poster knows that in smaller midwestern cities, neighbors helping each other instead of preying on one another is commonplace in these floods, but is impressed that even in a big city in the mid South there are no reports compared to the disgusting exhibition shown in NOLA.

The original poster thinks those labelled un-PC who spoke up against the rebuilding of NOLA shouldn't have given up. Logic was on their side, the original poster thinks.

The original poster even thinks "Treme" kind of sucks, and would like to punch out the NPR deejay and duct tape John Goodman's character before the original poster shit canned watching the series midway through eposie two.

You have a lot of truth in your words. I obviously don't agree with the entire extent, but that's neither here nor there. My angst comes from NOLA being the flagbearer for our state in terms of outsider perception. Nationally, people have the mental recall to think that NOLA is a microcosm for all of Louisiana, where it couldn't be farther from the truth. I strongly dislike being grouped in with the larger segment down the road from us, but such is life I guess. I don't hate everything about NOLA, but it's a much larger list than my likes (which outside of professional sports really is limited).

FWIW, Goodman is nailing that character. When you get a Tulane professor married to a civil rights attorney living in uptown NOLA, that's what you've got, right down to their brat kid. That segment of that town isn't in the same class as the looters and the "victims", but it doesn't take long to call roll.

The original poster doesn't have a hate on for the NOLA wilders, just disdain. Sick MFers .

The OP has let those animals and the post-relief (certainly in a disaster immediate triage relief must occur on a military logistical scale and the Feds dropped the ball tryng to have FEMA run the show ) entitlement hue and cry define his perception of NOLA.

The original poster just thinks that other than a few city blocks for the tourism industry that NOLA was largely an ungovernable train wreck built below sea level and a diaspora wouldn't have been the worst idea in 90 degree sunny weather (nor is Dave Bing's Detroit vision BTW ) . In fact AFAIC opportunity lost.

The original poster thinks that anyone has a right to live where they wish, but that when they do live under sea level and then stomp and piss and moan that I need to pay for them to do so to the tune of unreasonable sums or I am a ______________ (fill in the blank with whatever outrageous term chosen at the moment ) that we part company quickly.

I wouldn't go so far as to say Pol Pot woulda been right in this case with his anti-urban policy but certainly it is a case of Sam Kinneson and his take on U hauls all over again.

I'm guessing the same would apply to fault lines, tornado alley, etc? What about unappreciative welfare recipients, federal housing recipients, etc?

Yeah man, it's a choice. Have fun living there, and immediate human relief needs to come if tragedy strikes, but just buy your insurance for the long term instead of not doing that and having a hand out. If you can't find a carrier, what does that tell you?

And yeah, fuck the unappreciative. Like booing Celtic fan.

No doubt. It's high and dry where I am at, but alot of folks south of I-10 still have trouble with new homeowners' policies. Alot of new homeowners can only be approved if they have an existing policy (auto, life, etc) with said company for X amount of years prior. I enjoy being on the coast as much as the next guy, but for that price and hassle I'm fine with a couple hundred mile drive for great offshore fishing.

As for the population sample that was drug out of the inner city and evac'ed out, that's a pet peeve of mine. I miss the old Baton Rouge. Never the same.

The OP has let those animals and the post-relief (certainly in a disaster immediate triage relief must occur on a military logistical scale and the Feds dropped the ball tryng to have FEMA run the show ) entitlement hue and cry define his perception of NOLA.

The original poster just thinks that other than a few city blocks for the tourism industry that NOLA was largely an ungovernable train wreck built below sea level and a diaspora wouldn't have been the worst idea in 90 degree sunny weather (nor is Dave Bing's Detroit vision BTW ) . In fact AFAIC opportunity lost.

The original poster thinks that anyone has a right to live where they wish, but that when they do live under sea level and then stomp and piss and moan that I need to pay for them to do so to the tune of unreasonable sums or I am a ______________ (fill in the blank with whatever outrageous term chosen at the moment ) that we part company quickly.

I wouldn't go so far as to say Pol Pot woulda been right in this case with his anti-urban policy but certainly it is a case of Sam Kinneson and his take on U hauls all over again.


This poster couldn't possibly give less of a shit.

This poster was fuckin around.

I was in my last semester at LSU that fall, and yeah it was strange. Population goes from 250K overnight. The stories of crime were overblown to an extent, but downtown Baton Rouge did become extremely shady for the following 6 months or so after. Traffic was terrible, and fuck appreciation or gratitude. It was as if 250K people would roll into your town overnight and loiter around for 6 months taking every possible advantage to tell you how terrible your city and everyone native to it is. I got out that December for 2 years, just wanted to try something new for awhile and let everything die down.

There are some better aspects now as compared to before. Many professionals and small business owners from NOLA stayed which has been great for the economy, downtown is growing and really starting to have a great nightlife feel which it never has had prior to 5 years ago, the metro airport is expanding and becoming more accomodating, and the Port of Baton Rouge is booming. If we can ever get highways and infastructure to catch up to the population boom, we'll be alright. They are making honest strides in that direction, so that's a positive sight.

Brother in law, who graduated from LSU Law 3 years ago, just moved back to Baton Rouge for a new job. He can't believe what has happened there and is really excited. Can't wait to get back down there and have sushi at Tsunami again.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

The original poster does not assume that.

The original poster is merely using sarcasm as a device to compare and contrast

The original poster is impressed that there are not such reports.

The original poster knows that in smaller midwestern cities, neighbors helping each other instead of preying on one another is commonplace in these floods, but is impressed that even in a big city in the mid South there are no reports compared to the disgusting exhibition shown in NOLA.

The original poster thinks those labelled un-PC who spoke up against the rebuilding of NOLA shouldn't have given up. Logic was on their side, the original poster thinks.

The original poster even thinks "Treme" kind of sucks, and would like to punch out the NPR deejay and duct tape John Goodman's character before the original poster shit canned watching the series midway through eposie two.

The original poster has several great points in this thread. I especially like the Media Controlled State thought...

Downtown is decent, with funding-approved plans that can make it very nice. When you're down there, check out Lucy's Surfer Bar for the groove, Happy's Irish Pub for the scenery, and Puncher's Sports Bar which is a nice sports bar (unless there is a MMA pay-per view that night, in which case it gets a little too Jersey Shore-ish).

I occasionally get 90 minute breaks. You're in the wrong profession I guess. However, I meant that 30 minutes of programming are available to me on 3 national networks.
