Yes I am aware of this video, do you seriously believe this doesn't happen on other networks?

No. But I think it happens disproportionately more on Fox.

Here's more. http://welcome-to-pottersville.blogs...ts-finest.html

What scares me the most is that you try to come off as more enlightened by the rest of us, yet seem instantly drawn to obvious propaganda.

Just shows that they are trying to show the right's views, while ALL others show left views.

So we have one right news tv station, and a hundred left news tv stations. I agree.

Right? Left? Who cares?

Do you really want "the right's" posterboy to be the most sensationalist "news" around?

Good point, it does seem they take it too far and help give the right a bad rep.

I don't usually frequent Fox anyway, Half the time I don't even pay attention to the publisher untill I have read the article.

I really don't think there is as much of a left bias in the media as people make it out to be.

I'm in favor of reinstating news posters. Preferably, it would function under a particuilar system suitable for sorting content. For instance, if news posts are labeled "[Category] Title" (similarly to how threads in the RPGMaker forum look), it would be easier to display relevant content in various news categories on a future Zelaron portal.

Why not just let EVERYONE post news, though? I just don't see the reason for having specific news posters.

There seem to be one or two people who post more news than others, yes?

Over the past two months, the three who have posted far more news than anyone else are Adrena, Kagom and MJ.

If I were to decide, then I'd make those three News Posters... which would just mean they have a shiny new title. Big deal, right?

What if repsonsibilities come with that, though? Sort of a News Poster Mod position - people post news, and we usually just give a random title, a link, and along quote. News Posters could be left to then categorise the news (using tags as Chruser said - [WA] for World Affairs, [AM, State] for American, [TCH] for Technology, [ENT] for Entertainment news, etc). It could also fallt to them to be the main posters of news (as it was originally, I think). They obviously spend time finding news as it is, so what difference would it make if that was one of their responsibilities?

Summary:

- Flashy Title
- Categorise (edit thread titles, anything else?)
- Post

---

And a second idea that I just want to throw in the General pot, but also relates to the tag idea - how easy would it be to add new icons for posts? My thought is that, in conjunction with the tags, new icons can be made (I can do this if no-one else wants to) and added and then added to posts - WA, ENT, TCH, AM, etc. The tag letters in coloured squares like the Adobe CS3 icons, or in circles, or actual pictures relating to each category.

I'm talking about the icon within each forum. Just a very quick mock-up, based on the first page of posts:



The categorising system could use a bit of work (I'd maybe base it on the BBC system - Business, Politics, Health, Education, Science/Nature, Technology, Entertainment - and then add a few more in, like Society, World Affairs, Americas, Europe, Opinion/Editorial), but it could be used well in conjuction with tags that might say a little more (for example, if the article his the AM[ericas] icon, then the tag might say [AM, State Name]).

Looks great, Lenny! It reminds me a bit of Fark, only that they always provide external links (clicking needed). Instant news briefs on the portal (e.g. the first 500 characters being displayed when hovering over the news title; similar to how the forum works) would be ideal.

If the news feed is below 4 posts per day, it would likely be better to display 7-10 pieces of news with 1000+ characters each on the portal.

I have no idea what she's usually like, forgive me if she's some sort of fundamentalist/capitalist/gay basher/somethingelsenasty.

I think "Right-wing nutjob" is appropriate.
