I didn't mention my parents, guy.

My mom is a very well-balanced person who also reads all sides. We talk about media spin and propaganda regularly.
I said it was my AUNTS and UNCLES and BROTHER.

Done with you.
Enjoy your FOX daily ration of irrationality.

Pfffff I bet all the Fox haters are closet watchers who secretly love it. I hear that all the time concerning other social issues.

Fox news: distortions and lies. "well documented". LMAO. The haters do nothing but send links from other haters and think that is some form of proof.

My contempt.

All media exaggerate, alter importances and ignore others. Zero difference, between them.

ZERO.

Fear is the motivation for the hate, nothing more significant than that.

The reason there isn't much "hate" for the left's media is due to their steady loss of ratings, profits and credibility.

One doesn't have to hate the left's media. Indifference and ignoring their brand of bias apparently is much more effective than "hate".

Carry on my wayward sons....

CBS, NBC and ABC are a cold, flu, and pneumonia
CNN is diabetes, MSNBC is hypertension, but Fox News is terminal cancer

or

NBC, CBS, ABC are the 3 stooges. MSNBC and CNN are Laurel and Hardy. Fox News is Hannibal Lector

Oh, I forgot to mention that I also go daily to alternet.org, consortiumnews, sometimes "The Blaze" when my stomach is settled, and other independent sites.
Thanks for reminding me.

Fixed it for ya.

So they are " destroyed " because they don't agree with you?

Too funny.

No, smart guy. They are "destroyed" because they WON'T LISTEN TO ANYTHING ELSE, and BELIEVE everything they hear on there.
They don't have to listen to (or agree with) me (and I've given up arguing, because they won't) - but they DO need to listen to the other side.

I've suggested it - "Just for one week, look at other news outlets". Nogo. Nope! They won't. Period.

Intelligent, well-educated people. Capable of critical thinking. But they WILL NOT look at other sources. Brainwashed. Like the bumper sticker on my car: FOX NEWS Brainwash, Rinse, and Spin.

At least I have the audacity/gumption to read ALL of the various views on the media.
Watch Jon Stewart. You might learn something, even if you "don't agree with" him.

Too funny indeed








Getting your news from Jon Stewart or Steven Colbert is just as bad. Jon Stewart was shilling for Obama just a few years ago and he readily toes the Democrat party line, while Colbert mocks the Republicans.

Both of them only bring scandals to light because it makes good cannon fodder for jokes because the Government's excuses are jokes.

It's all propaganda, and you'll find more truth and fact from smaller internet based media outlets that have built their following reporting on what they know to be true based off of the available facts.

Just say NO to the corporate globalist line.

Please note:
I am no fan of the government, or Obama...
I just try to keep up with ALL of the tidbits floating around, and stay neutral. If I read some outrageous thing on one source, I go to the 'opposing' source to try to figure out the middle ground.

As some have mentioned HLN, I will say that Nancy Grace is one of the WORST human beings I have ever encountered, on the tele, or off of it. She literally makes my skin crawl, and bile rise into my mouth.

This thread is a perfect example of why all MSM is bad. They thrive on partisan politics to separate and keep everyone arguing with each other. This allows the real issues that truly effect us to slide under the radar and keeps the TPTB in control at all times.

Unfortunately it works extremely well...

Check out this Pew Research info -

Forbes - MSNBC The Most Opinionated Cable News Channel By Far

If you’re like most cable news viewers, you probably think the channel you favor has a monopoly on the facts and the other ones are nothing more than a bunch of ranting. In fact, which cable network is the most opinionated is not a matter of opinion. It’s MSNBC.

A full 85% of the Comcast-owned network’s coverage can be classified as opinion or commentary rather than straight news,according to the authors of the Pew Research Center’s annual State of the News Media report. CNN and Fox News Channel, meanwhile, fall much closer to a 50/50 distribution, with Fox News skewing somewhat more heavily toward opinion.


MSNBC - only 15% of MSNBC is Actual Factual Reporting

In the Pew Research Center's 2013 "State of the News Media" report, MSNBC was found to be the most opinionated news network, with 85% of the content being commentary or opinions, and only 15% of the content being factual reporting. The report also stated that MSNBC spends the least amount of money producing its news, only $240 million in 2012, compared to CNN, which spent $682 million, and Fox, which spent $820 million.

Partisan division is a good thing, IMO. In the past when there was less public divisiveness injustices were usually ignored.

Now that everything is out in the open hate and injustice has a light shining on it and we're getting closer to equality for everyone.

I think partisan division is good if people are compromising and trying to find answers.

That isn't what the MSM does. They use partisan politics to divide people and keep them distracted.

If they made one liberal station instead of spreading it out..would Fox news still be number one..Nope.

That is a fact. Fox is garbage and it stays so because of the type of people it attracts. Conservatives...really nothing to add there...you see the name and you know the type of people you are dealing with.

They all spread lies, misinformation or exaggerate stories to fit their agenda, not saying they are the only ones..but they are the only ones who blatantly do it and get away with it. Because the people watching it also do the same.

So what you are saying is that you hate conservatives?

I don't agree with you but you are honest, star for you.

FOX jumped out in front of Tea Partyers to get ratings, and to manipulate the message. Can't be having people rally against money lenders. They play country music to make people think that "they are on the average persons side". BS.

Bill O'Reilly is coming to a town close to me. I thought about going and heckling him. lol I'd do the same if any big news anchor were coming(not really, but I should). They're all mouth pieces for the shadow that really controls everything, they just manipulate the masses and exploit our differences so that they can shove their agendas. It's the same agenda by the same master.

But I think the reason there is so much hate for FOX is because they play country music. I really do. Can't be having country folks having an outlet(not that it is). That's where the "stupid" and "dumb" comments come in, I think. Quite funny. Maybe FOX knows that by having a country-theme, that it will drive the left-winged loons to the edge even further? lol It's all manipulation. You are all being deceived. I opened my eyes to it long ago. Same with the repub/democrat scheme.

And for the people who think that John Stewart is "smart" and that Steven Colbert is "brilliant": They are worse than anything FOX news has ever had on. Those two hide behind a satirical moniker and push agendas all at the same time. Those are the most cunning of all.
