A neutral position would accept all parties.

Don't want to take a position on religion? You accept advertising from Muslim, Baptist, Catholic, Atheist, Agnostic, Satanist, etc.

Alcohol? You accept advertising from Budweiser and Mothers Against Drunk Driving

Guns? Advertising from Ruger and the Brady Campaign.

THAT is "not taking a position".


I disagree, that's taking ALL positions, and that's silly.
If one doesn't want to say anything that constitutes a position, the most sensible and economic way to do so is to say nothing at all. That's what WWV is trying to do. But since the WWV is on everyone's chyt list here, there is nothing they can say and no reasoned analysis of the situation that will convince anyone otherwise.

Along with "If you aren't with me then you're against me" comes "Don't try reason and objectivity to change my mind, it's been made up without them and will remain so, it's immune to them".
