Default Quick Question

What happened to the "editorial bias" thread? Did it turn into a political fight? Last time I checked the discussion was about how various people can interpret the same story differently. Everything was civil and the discussion had not turned into a fight. The subject was about news channels and the way they report in order to support their left or right agenda. It didn't matter which side of the political aisle you are on, the discussion was about the news on TV. WTF??

I am not intending to restart the discussion. I want to know why the thread was deleted. Anyone know?

Good question - my wacky headlines thread also vanished. I hadn't checked it for a while. I don't know if the headline I posted was a problem, or if something someone else posted or commented on was inappropriate.

It would be nice if maybe the admins could send the thread starter a message to detail what the issue was so it can be avoided in the future.

If that's the case the offending post should get canned not the thread.

I guess if that would be the case, you would have received a note by the mods.

It's a mystery at the moment. Both for mine and MrQ's.
