Concrete object versus emotion: a tough comparison. Actually, bullies *are* kicked out of school -- when they're caught.
Bullied kid beaten so severely he is in medically induced coma.
Punishment? 2 days suspension
7-yr-old girl DISCUSSING a pink hello kitty toy that blows soap BUBBLES.
Punishment: 10 DAYS SUSPENSION
Are you effing kidding me?

I sure hope you two aren't doing anything meaningful to society with your lives. You're scary shallow. You're very obviously NOT media professionals -- evident in how you gather information and what you do with it, and in how you express yourselves.
Why you're on a media professionals site at all is beyond comprehension. You don't belong here. Why don't you go hang out with people who are like yourselves so that other posters here can talk? What is it that you find so fulfilling about looking like dolts and starting fights?
Sheesh. Every time I check back, I hope it will be different, and it's only worse. What are there now, like six posters left? I don't know anyone who says they come here anymore. Little wonder.
Congratulations on your destruction of what used to be a good board.

Not my problem
If you want a return to civil discussion and a rational exchange of ideas then you need to...and encourage your left wing brethren to...get civil tongues in their heads and make rational, well-considered posts.
Speaking only for myself, the way I'm engaged on here dictates how I will respond. And it's been all negative, insults, personal attacks and ad hominem since you left wingers discovered I was not one of your left wing brethren.
I was on this site but inactive for a long time and started posting here when you people arrived from the sandbox and began making use of a little-used forum.
As for my media bona fides, I'm a freelance non-fiction writer and have been for many, many years. I'm not a newsie and make no pretense of being one. But writers are most definitely part of the media at large.
Where did you and others get the idea that MediaBistro is only for newsies?

Karen Penner, well-stated, esp your first post on this thread.
I too have wondered if someone so vile could be a real person
or of this hatefulness is just part of a nasty online persona.
Either way, it must be exhausting to keep this up, and it
cannot be good for one's health.

Here's another one
who simply ignores the root cause of the disharmony here and continues to blame me.
You people cannot seriously want civil discussion...you're not addressing the real problem.

You, loser, have the "real problem." Your scriptwriter and acting ability are letting you down.
I come on here every three months or so, and your character puts me in a political party? Not reasonable.
"You people"? In what way is that form of condescension supposed to constitute a "rational, well-considered [post]" or "civil discussion." Geez -- when your scriptwriter gives you dialog that's second-rate (such as conflicting), point it out and demand that it be changed.
Tell your scriptwriter that media professionals don't slap political labels on each other, for one thing, and aren't consumed by politics.
Tell him or her that media professionals do research before they write, are extremely capable at sorting out the ax-grinding from the credible, aren't afraid to find out what they don't know, are open to 360 degrees of other people's perspectives (and don't dice them up over it), and most important, THEY DON'T TEAR APART OTHER MEDIA PROFESSIONALS, CRUISER. Tell the scriptwriter that media professionals (especially news people, as that's where you've imbedded yourself) are extremely collegial with each other, and that includes Fox with MSNBC.
The stupid and mean-spirited things your scriptwriter has you saying would NEVER occur among professionals, and since you're playing a professional while in an audience of professionals, your scriptwriter simply has to do better. I can only hope you're getting paid to to act, rather than paying for the shoddy script.
You really should ditch your scriptwriter, get out of here, and come back with believable persona, if it's a media professional that you want to play.

"media professionals don't

ROFLMAO! Have you seen what your left wing brethren post on here??? It's virtually all uncomplimentary labels and political attacks...along with insults and ad hominem...directed at the few conservatives who post here.
But you're right...the left wing media types don't admonish each other to be civil...even when they're all being a$$holes.

Each poster needs to be responsible for his/her own posts and that's it. No one here is a community moderator, (as on HP). This board needs some moderation but it will not not happen unless Media Bistro gets involved and they are not interested.

"Each poster needs to be
responsible for his/her own posts and that's it."
That's funny...coming from people who are always criticizing what I post and how I say it.
It seems to me you'd have no hesitation to suggest standards of decency to your left wing brethren...unless, of course, you subscribe to the double standard that is readily apparent.

I agree, VG. And we all know what you're talking about -- don't we, mp and es?

And what, mp? If you're in the choir, sing with the choir. Quit mucking it up for the rest of us.

I've said like seven words here the whole two page thread...

You know what I mean.
Look, if you don't give a rat's ass about any of the rest of us, you ought to care about yourself. You use your name here. Anyone can Google it. When they do, they learn something about your work -- and they also get your posts in this forum. Are these really what you want people to think of you?
This forum is why the entire board died. It wasn't because there was no need or because posters got tired of it; it was because they didn't want the abuse or the taint.
Who knows why you can call a troll a troll yet not do what it takes to get rid of one. You're in other threads today, egging him on.
If you're truly unable to control your impulses, perhaps you and he and ES could set up your very own Yahoo or Google group, where you could have a three-way dawn-to-dusk mud wrestle while keeping it from fouling up your social-media presence. Then the rest of us who are known, chased off or unknown could restore this entire board.
The way it is now, you're fooling yourself if you think everyone's watching you from the wings. Most everyone is gone. Nobody can get here from the homepage anymore -- on purpose. The place is dying, and you have had a big hand in killing it. You can change it, if you care to. Do you?

This is funny as hell
NONE of you "boycotters" has the personal discipline or strength of character.
But your real objective is not a boycott. It's to overwhelm, obscure and drown out conservative thought with your far left narrative.
THAT'S why none of you can shut up. And why some or all of you ALWAYS has to have the last word.

Quit playing the asshat, as if you didn't know that the problem isn't politics. You're a smart boy, you know the problem is YOU. Insulting, attention-demanding, fight-baiting, mean-spirited YOU.
Get a new script. Everyone's tired of YOU portraying the small-minded mentally disturbed jerk hanging out online. Stereotypes are sucky roles in the first place, but yours is a doozy. Demand something better to play.
