O'Reilly debunked again.

The following is a MUST READ link.

It's a study by Indiana University about Bill O'Reilly: "BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Bill O'Reilly may proclaim at the beginning of his program that viewers are entering the 'No Spin Zone,' but a new study by Indiana University media researchers found that the Fox News personality consistently paints certain people and groups as villains and others as victims to present the world, as he sees it, through political rhetoric.

The IU researchers found that O'Reilly called a person or a group a derogatory name once every 6.8 seconds, on average, or nearly nine times every minute during the editorials that open his program each night."

Peter Nguyen debunked again! The Republican-turned-democrat has been known to flip-flop more on the issues than John "Flip-Flop" Kerry. Nguyen is apparently becoming the republican-turned-democrat-turned-republican because he now supports Mitt Romney's candidacy for presidency. The rest of us democrats don't really need someone like you trying to represent our party, so why don't you just get out of politics altogether!

Billy G,

Actually, "the rest of (you) democrats" DO need Peter representing you, since the rest of you guys (with a few notable exceptions) have utterly failed to represent yourself.

Do you know why it was that a Republican served as one of the club officers for Winter Semester? The answer is easy, there were not enough Democrats willing to step up and speak out on the issues. The Republican (me) was the only one who the leadership felt attended the meetings enough and was reliable enough to fill the position.

In my two years at the school as a political science major I have met quite a few who identified themselves as either "liberal" or as a Democrat. I almost never saw any of these people attend a meeting, nor make any other effort to either dispel the Mormon myths about liberals or share their views in a public forum.

I can count the number of students who have made an honest effort to promote a liberal ideology on the campus with both hands and have enough fingers left over to chow down on hot wings.

If you don't think Peter is doing a good job (or any of us for that matter) representing you, then the best way to solve the problem is to participate, attend the meetings, and do a better job. Taking shots from the sidelines does nothing to help the cause.
