Comments   

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

you are raving about one simple nonsense fact, of corporations not paying taxes at all.
why do you discredit yourself and your readers with such illiterate and mad allegations?You are totally incoherent and discredit your own purpose.You do it until you are attacked by a real corporation for slander,or taken to a lunatic asylum.If you are to represent me, take responsibility for your comments.why do you destroy an otherwise nobel and realistic purpose?

The video cites the Washington Post and GAO as sources. I tried to search the GAO web site for a report that might correspond to this claim, but had no success. In addition, I searched the WP site and failed to find anything there. Could someone help me out in finding some of this source material?

To Mark Proulx:

Go here for one source of the claim:
http://money.cnn.com/2008/08/12/news/economy/corporate_taxes/

Zeros71, your rant is a painful example of brainwashing by corporate-owned media. I don't see anyone on this site claiming to "represent" you, but I can easily understand why you are ignored. Even for a brainwashed stooge of the plutocracy, your inference that somehow financial institutions that helped themselves to YOUR tax dollars and made huge profits in 2009 and then stiffed the American people on their corporate taxes while sucking up another BILLION tax dollars in loophole credits is "an otherwise nobel and realistic purpose" makes me wonder if you are in a lunatic asylum. Your post is certainly an "illiterate and mad allegation." The only response one can have to such cluelessness is pity. It is because of profoundly deranged misinterpretati ons of the facts such as yours that the country is in such deep trouble. You probably voted for Bush twice. Look how well that worked out! Stop watching Fox. Get your news on rsn, and the world will look a lot different.

From what I have listened to, I intend to cancel my Bank of America credit card. I hope others will do the same.

After what I have just listened to, I intend to cancel my Bank of America Credit card. I hope all those holding these cards will do the same------big loss to the bank I would think.
