OT: Media showed their true colors last night

The PRESIDENT of the United States gave a speech to the country and the major networks don't put it on.

Un-fricken believable.

I agree....and they wonder why the typical American citizen is so apathetic...most of them don't even know whats really going on in this country.

The only good place to get "real" news is from FOX!!!

I'm told NBC DID carry it.

It was on Fox for me, that is a local network in my area. I cannot believe it wasn't on NBC or anything else, I didn't even know. See, he is a weasel.

kill your T.V.!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

It was on EVERY station here.

Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS & CNN I think ESPN missed it but all of the others covered it.

You need to direct your displeasure to your local affiliates because they where the ones that opted not to televise it.

According to the news this morning, the networks felt that it was a re-hash of things the Pres. has said before, so they didn't bother to air it on the East Coast. It was on every network on the West Coast.

If you haven't read the book "Bias", you should. It gives example after example of the established media's liberal bias.

Can't have the President of the United States screwing up prime time television, can we?

This was the PRESIDENT of the USA. Making a very important speech on our FUTURE. Our men and woman in the military will probably soon risk their lives for our cause and the big shot TV networks couldn't give him 20 minutes. How pathetic. Apparently Drew Carey, Fear Factor, and King of Queens are more important. urrrrghh :)

I heard the reason the networks didn't put him on was because the whitehouse never asked for a time slot like they always do.

I agree thouh, the media is very biased.


There are 3 "reasons" and you can take them for what they are.

1)President Bush did not request air time

2)He was at a GOP fundraiser( atleast that is what I hear)

3)The speech was not from the White House, nor any "official" location

That in itself is reason and reasonable not to air it, I guess. But the question should be, "if this were Clinton would they have aired it"?

But the question should be, "if this were Clinton would they have aired it"?

Probably, and that'd be followed by an indictment, then endless Senate hearings, then charges of bias and political grandstanding and before you know it we find out the man can't keep his "toy" in his pants and we get a bill for 400 million bucks to find that out.

"But the question should be"

Do we really want to go over this again and is this where we want to do it?

Watched him on CNN (they have the best captioner) you are of course right on this. The man is talking about more war and major channels don't even carry it. Ridiculous! Benz :D:):D

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!

      Currently have a 2000 drz400s work stock suspension. From my understanding this is the worst suspension the drz ever came with without even rebound damping adjustment. Therefore I'm looking for a upgrade. I'm seeing three approaches to take. First being a newer year s model suspension with dampening adjustment. A SM model USD forks and triple tree or some USD forks and triple tree from a rmz. So if you were going to upgrade what direction would you go. I currently ride off-road mostly but I do have some 17s for on road with as well so have to keep that in mind. Thanks
