I can't help but think more than a little of the establishment hate for Fox has to do with pure numbers.

Cable News Ratings - May 22nd

I'd post some specific numbers, but I'm not kidding to say it's just so one sided for ratings outside one example, I doubt people would believe them anyway.

The only place Fox doesn't win (and is like saying ice is kinda cold for the disparity) is one time slot where it's not radically lopsided but MSNBC actually beats Fox.. Oh.. Sad .. I mean, really sad. BOTH sides of that time slot. What line up head to heads Fox and MSNBC?

Chris Matthews and Greta. (facepalm).. Greta couldn't win a talent contest at a local grade school...and still Matthews only beats her by a couple points.

Fox is very establishment. The media arm of the republican party is as establishment as it gets.

I can't speak for the establishment, but I hate fox cause it's the enemy of journalistic integrity. I think fox news is a toxic news network. news shouldn't be divisive.

In this instance? I'm sincerely the messenger, don't hang me! lol...

There was a time, years ago, I respected Fox. Now, we're supposed to be on the same "side" in conservative thinking, but they are so far into right-extreme crazytown, they ought to be ashamed at calling themselves a news organization with a COUPLE exceptions. They do have a couple News anchors...but out of a 24hr news cycle? For Shame....

Then again, Headline News used to BE Headline News before it became the placeholder for dead last variety channel on cable. CNN Primary is so ...I dunno... stupid? Silly? INANE? I can't stand them either.

MSBNC is great if I need a reminder of why I am still conservative, despite Fox.

fair enough.

I honestly try to avoid political party news networks, so I'm not fully informed on what republicans are selling, but when someone from the right does get on a show I watch, they always seem to hang onto the point that we didn't call it terrorism or they say we had bad Intel and we are incompetent. I don't disagree, but I think fox is blowing it out of perpetration. It's terrible that these people died, but it's not the first time we failed on bad Intel. ignoring the warnings of 9/11 is one example.

They keep repeating that the body was drug through the streets, but everything I seen says people where trying to get him help. If getting the truth out is their intention they should do that, but I get the feeling if Hillary wasn't a potential presidential candidate, fox would be a bit less concerned.

Well, I'll say this much on my own personal feelings. First, it would be easier if two things happened.

#1. Fox stopped championing the cause. Those of us who care won't stop caring just because some talking heads found something else to talk about. The whole point, in fact, is how the facts are beyond what the media has largely chosen to talk about as anything. They've done MORE harm to muddy the whole thing than ever cleared anything up for anyone.

#2. People stop thinking this can somehow be 'Gotcha to Obama'. It can't. It won't. The effort to try and make it that way is making a full blown circus with everything but the tigers and dancing monkeys. We DO have hundreds of clowns. No shortage of them. Jack asses and elephants too! We don't need ANY of it.

Beyond that... I'm waiting to see where this new special committee goes. I followed the appointments and initial steps in the Congressional dailies and it looks okay so far. Dems and Reps both, and not softies either. At least it won't be anything on the executive side literally investigating itself.

The left, and most of main stream media, think they know what is "right" for all of us.

It's a mental conditioning, one that has taken 50 years to get into place. They really could care less about being lied to by this administration, because they think they are all in this for a common goal.

1. No guns. Make sure any gun violence is covered so that everyone sees we need to take all the guns away.

2. No free speech, just shut up and do as we say. Anyone who speaks out, we will slander the hell out of them. SHUT UP FOXNEWS!!!

3. Obama wants to give everyone free health care, why should we stop that!?? Just cover this whole Obamacare disaster as a small fart in the wind. They will fix it and everything will end up fine in the end. Extend, extend...

4. Bengazi, didn't really happen the way anyone says it did, just ask Jay Carney, he tells us everything was fine!

What gets me is, they are completely willing to give up every right they have, to try to make this a socialist country, everyone gets a check from the government, and we all get free food stamps. They don't want anyone (other than themselves of course) to make a lot of money.

Control people, it's all about control. Control over YOU.

And yes, the embassy was/is US territory, any invasion of it should have been treated like a foreign power just tried to take Manhattan. Instead, we cancelled the troops and hoped it all would go away. 4 people died, and we still don't know why.

If that was someone you loved, you would demand answers.

If not, you are not human.

When the truth comes out on Bengazi, someone will end up in jail, for a very long time.

Mainstream media is the left. One in the same in my opinion. Except Fox news of course.
