In other news, NSG goes out of its way to defend Rachel Maddow. Argues that factual reporting isn't facts.

Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.
The probability of one's participation in homosexual acts is directly proportional to one's public disdain and disgust for homosexuals.
If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

It is funny to see you supporting CNN's reporting, though.
Venicilian: wow. Jesus hung around with everyone. boys, girls, rich, poor(mostly), sick, healthy, etc. in fact, i bet he even went up to gay people and tried to heal them so they would be straight.
The Parkus Empire: Being serious on NSG is like wearing a suit to a nude beach.
New Kereptica: Since power is changed energy over time, an increase in power would mean, in this case, an increase in energy. As energy is equivalent to mass and the density of the government is static, the volume of the government must increase.

That's not really what was being said.
Factual Reporting is going out and finding events, documenting them, looking at every angle, etc.
Commentary can be just as factual, rather than reporting on the facts, it's giving perspective to the facts, and voicing opinions on it.

Don't use words if you don't know what they mean. It's like whenever you accuse someone of strawmanning you while you simultaneously misrepresent even the most basic comments that you don't like.

And yet you still assume that more factual reporting necessarily means that the facts and stories aren't blatantly slanted in a way equivalent to a commentary show. :roll:
