My apologies for the WSJ link being a pay site and that the full article cannot be seen there.  8888crybaby

 You can google for other links using the article for key words .. I would guess?

Why indeed??  The AP is so far in the Administration's pocket they can hardly require much monitoring....

They do commit the odd random act of journalism. Not tolerable to the thin skinned Worm.

BHO has AP, Reuters, CNN, USAToday, WashPost, et al. in his pocket. It's really just FOX and a few local news sources that might present a problem for him. I know if they tried to put a monitor in the smalltown newspaper newsroom in which I've worked, the (conservative) executive editor and publisher would be livid.

I suppose they'll get away with it, too.  Pushing the limits and winning is what this administration is all about.  No one has the guts to stand up to them except a few Congressman and they're being vilified by their own side.

Go in the United Airlines lounge in any airport and Fox is usually on. IF it isn't just ask and they will gladly turn it on! Even in Newark..LOL

(thanks go out to ilovesarah2012 for the above)

 Yep .. y'all read the name correctly.  :beer:

Correct... I have no problems with it being a duplicate, people pretty much ignored it the first go-round and I think it is important.

I will remember that. But I don't like flying anymore unless I HAVE to. I have not flown United in years. Always Delta or US Airways. And sadly the US Airways crash in PA in the 90's happened after I had an emergency landing for the same thing on a 737. A flock of birds-STORY. And I was on Delta! Because of my plunge from 38,000 feet and the engine on fire I have researched plane crashes. And just recently found this so I won't be going on an airplane soon. lol thread hijack here is a simulated video. It makes me wonder if the crash in PA in the 90's was a terrorist attack.

Didn't they blame it on a hinge failure on the stabilizer?

Yes, Rap they did. But they said a flock of birds at first. I really don't think they know the real cause to this day. I used to think lack of maintenance issues until I happened upon a pilot forum online. I actually found that video because of talk that the 911 plane in PA was shot down or crashed? They were comparing the impact of the planes. Shortly after my emergency landing there was a 737 that a woman and her son died just sitting on a plane when the engine backfired? blewup? ( I am only alive because the pilot was prior military and knew how to fly off auto-pilot) He was BTW fired for telling us the engine fell off the plane over the speaker after he confirmed it himself walking off the back stairs of the 737. The FAA lied and said a flock of birds (birds can't breath at 38,000 feet). so I have always researched. I know one airliner was bombed off NY coming in from across the pond. These others were either mechanical failure or terrorists that never bragged.

I was probably one of the pilots on one of your flights! :tongue2:

Flew for Delta from 72-87.

Now I can barely see anything on my 55 inch monitor! :silly:

Every single American should watch the documentary they showed (and still show periodically) on Epic about the TWA Flight 800.........  it will convince you just how crooked our government is...

My preference was always Delta or Continental. Started taking Continental when I flew to NYC because they flew non-stop from Las Vegas... and in the winter I wanted non-stop.

First, the agency selected eight categories of "critical information" such as the "environment" and "economic opportunities," that it believes local newscasters should cover.

In other words - they have to give the Obama line or they will not receive their FCC renewals.

In Soviet Russia there were two television channels.

Channel 1 consisted of nothing but programming made to praise the Party and the glory of communism. 

Channel 2 had a man telling you to turn back to channel 1.
