Right, stupid comments from station managers really get the point across. Why does his opinion carry more weight than mine? He is just a guy who got what he said in print. Doesn't make it more valid reborn, just an opinion.
It was not an opinion! I quoted the ACTION that the station manager took of removing the Dixie Chicks from the station's playlist. As stated in a previous post when defining censorship, I was presenting an actiual case of censorship taking place, not merely an opinion.
Please, oh please tell me where I lied.
You said there was no censorship. I provided definitions of the terminology, and actual cases where censorship took place. You stood by your stance that there is no censorship even when proven wrong with documentation. Therefore you are propagating a lie.
So much for freedom of opinion. If we don't share yours you resort to name calling. Hmmm, reminds me of another poster on this board. You simply have not presented any proof. Just other people's opinions. You didn't put the source of your censorship definition and honestly, it could go either way. I still don't believe it's censorship and don't give a rat's ass if you do.
No proof? I have provided links and definitions, articles, etc.
www.dictionary.com for my first reference:
or how about the Merriam-Webster definition so as to give you multiple sources?
Main Entry: 1 cen·sor
Etymology: Latin, from censEre to give as one's opinion, assess; perhaps akin to Sanskrit samsati he praises
1 : one of two magistrates of early Rome acting as census takers, assessors, and inspectors of morals and conduct
2 : one who supervises conduct and morals: as a : an official who examines materials (as publications or films) for objectionable matter b : an official (as in time of war) who reads communications (as letters) and deletes material considered sensitive or harmful
3 : a hypothetical psychic agency that represses unacceptable notions before they reach consciousness
Satisfied? I am still right.
You simply have not presented any proof. Just other people's opinions.
Another lie. I have provided definitions and articles with hyperlinks and quotation included. NOT opinions, actual events which took place. You believing it is not censorship or me believing it is censorship is an opinion. Actual cases where radio stations remove them from a playlist solely because of vocalized political statements are FACT, not opinion. Get it together.
Is it your intention to be a condescending pr*ck? Would you say something like that to his face? Or any of the above to mine, for that matter? Sorry to cut in here Yeru, but I'm just shocked that someone so young would be such an ass over the Dixie Chicks. God, they are just three stupid women. Who cares?
Condescending prick? Think what you will. Would I say something like that to his face? Certainly, if I firmly believe it. To you? Without question. Contrary to public opinion these days, I believe in freedom of speech and the right to make comments criticizing government without being considered unpatriotic and censored by the media.
What does age have to do with anything? You may consider me rude, but let us not forget you didn't mind making comments toward me either. Are they just three stupid women? Yes. I don't even like their music. Who cares? I do, for the simple fact that people being censored and protested against for speaking their mind against a current President (utilizing their amendment right to free speech) concerns me, as it should any American.
This discussion is over. You may reply if you wish, but I do not waste my time trying to rationalize with people who confuse opinion with fact, and lies with truth.
I still extend an olive branch, but if you wish to remain bitter, so be it.
