Banks Financing Mexico Gangs Admitted in Wells Fargo Deal - Bloomberg

Quote:
They found 128 black suitcases, packed with 5.7 tons of cocaine, valued at $100 million. The stash was supposed to have been delivered from Caracas to drug traffickers in Toluca, near Mexico City, Mexican prosecutors later found. Law enforcement officials also discovered something else.
The smugglers had bought the DC-9 with laundered funds they transferred through two of the biggest banks in the U.S.: Wachovia Corp. and Bank of America Corp., Bloomberg Markets magazine reports in its August 2010 issue.
How about no one has ever reported that Wachovia/Wells Fargo was involved in laundering hundreds of billions of dollars in drug money from Latin America? Can't be a conspiracy theory if it's from a mainline source eh?

Here's what I also dug up

This Florida based Gulfstream II jet aircraft # N987SA crash landed on September 24, 2007 after it ran out of fuel over Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula it had a cargo of several tons of Cocaine on board now documents have turned up on both sides of the Atlantic that link this Cocaine Smuggling Gulfstream II jet aircraft # N987SA that crashed in Mexico to the CIA who used it on at least 3 rendition flights from Europe and the USA to Guantanamo's infamous torture chambers between 2003 to 2005.

Question.

When do most Americans work? And when they are working, how many people have time to watch TV?

What you are saying is that Fox isn't as biased during the day, but only when people are watching.

Whats the difference?

Which television news network provides the most accurate news and has the most politically diverse representation of guests on the opinion programming? I watch them all and Fox News has been the most accurate and they also have lots of people from the left on as guests, which I like as I want to hear how they can try to defend Obama's epic failures.

Poll: Fox most trusted name in news - Andy Barr - POLITICO.com

Fox Most Trusted Name In News: Public Policy Polling
I cheated and read your links, after voting, and learned that PPP finds that Fox is preferred by 1151 polled people. I will say that the pundits on Fox have been talking about how little you can trust PPP polls the past couple of weeks so maybe they aren't as right as they think they are.

I got a kick out of reading the replies that came before I started writing here, one from a lefty and one from a right leaner. Neither of them views Fox during the daytime hours, I am sure.

This could prove to be an interesting thread since now we have enough replies to bury your OP and most lefties don't read things like your links, anyway.

Nice poll from, 18 months ago. Both links reference the same poll. Class there.

Argumentum ad populum - RationalWiki

"This logical fallacy is often used by children as an excuse for wanting something (everybody's got one), or doing something (everybody's doing it). Despite the juvenile nature of the argument, it is often used by people who should know better, particularly by those who are trying to force other people to their way of thinking."
Had you given equal time to abuses on your chosen side of the aisle you may have had a valid argument. Sadly, like many on the left, you seem to believe only the "other side" should be held accountable.

I know how you seem to feel when you reply here but I do not think you have watched a lot of daytime Fox unless maybe the early morning one that Media Matters has our lefties on all the time. The only thing I see a lot of partisan bias during the day comes from that early show and then beginning at 3:00 CDT but that stops at 5:00 and tomorrow will stop at 4:00 CDT.

And your online clips come mostly from Media Matters, huh?
