debate?

I have yet to see any Debate on that show.
Lets call it what it is. Seriouslly ..
Its a Republican bashing show brought to you by the same people that bring you the Daily Show, a more popular republican bashing show.

:-t :-t

using a Bill Maher reference for anything should be grounds for a yellow card, IMO . ;-7

sure, if you consider the credits, "5-7 minutes of good points" .. :-)

The only debate I have ever seen on his show, is when they take some unknown "Rebulican spokesman" who is brave enough to go on, and Maher and his weekly liberal panelists rip him to shreads in a 4 on 1 type of "Debate".

I may be wrong here, but isn't HBO and the Comedy Channel both owned by Viacom?

As the Liberal Wacko that I am I agree with Wveres Bill Mahr's show is a republican bashing show... It rules!

One time I saw Darrell Issa on there and he had Maher worshipping him by the end of the show. Issa was totally unfazed by everything.

I can't speak for Real Time as I've never watched it, but you obviously have never actually watched The Daily Show. First off, Jon Stewart consistantly states that it is fake news. Anyways, an outlet critiquing those in power is really something to get indignant about. ;-7 I watch The Daily Show, and I've never seen Stewart "bash" republicans. He pokes fun at Bush and other political officials, but I've never seen him make generalizations about your average Joe Republican. As for the debate aspect of it, two things:

1. If you're tuning into a channel called "Comedy Central" to find thought-provoking unbaised debate, then you've already made a mistake.

2. Stewart does bring some outspoken Republicans on the show and debates with them one on one. He's always respectful and doesn't attack them, from what I've seen at least.

Real Time may do these things, I don't know, but don't group the Daily Show with it.

As for the topic at hand, I think we should put more energy into finding alternate energy sources and less focus on the ANWR. Once we go in there, it will be permanently changed. How large the change is, I can't say, but it's not a two way street. Considering the time it'll take to access the oil, it may be best to see where we can get with alt. energy sources before altering a unique ecosystem first. If we wait and further perfect technology that would use less space and do less harm to the ecosystem there while developing alt. energy, then I'm all for it.

But see thats kinda where were at. They have developed techiniques and technology that minimize the affects of drilling on the ecosystem. It does use less space and it does do less harm than the techniques used 20+ years ago. The reports coming back regarding the drills that are up there basically show that for the most part, they have a very minimal affect on the surrounding ecosystem.

Also - this isnt an either/or type of situation. Yes, we really really need to put more emphasis on developing alternate forms of energy - I havent seen one person here say that they disagree with that. The argument is why not do both rather than focus more on one or the other.
