Well well well! Now isn't this interesting. lol Glad to see that others have this perception about Fox News. I quit watching the news on TV
because of that news station.
Let me back up a bit. Back when we were on the brink of going into Iraq, I, like every other American out there, sat on the edge of my chair to watch
the news. Up to that point I really had no interest in the news, but as we edged into Iraq, Fox news put on such a show that I got all caught up in
the excitement. How naive is that eh? lol For days I watched Fox faithfully. My friends warned me that I should watch all the news stations to get
a more informed perspective, but oh no! Fox made it all so exciting. Their presentation showed us as the Grand Rescuers of that poor oppressed
nation! (Gagg me) I wanted us to be that and wouldn't, at first, think anything else. That is, until I inadvertantly caught a bit of news on CNN
and they were showing a different perspective. Suddenly, and I might add, angerly, I began to watch that station and others in an attempt gather
information in support of my desire to be the heros. lmao BOY WAS I SHOCKED! when I began to see that many other American's were saying, "Wait!
No! Let's think this through. We don't want war!" That's when I started to think for myself.
A few months ago my daughter and I moved back to Arizona from Wyoming and for a couple of months we stayed with my parents while I looked for a job
and got us into housing. My Dad who's a retired Army officer, and Catholic became agitated with our presence there. He often said mean and hurtful
things to my daughter, and I would come home to find her in tears because he would not leave her alone. When I confronted him with this his answer to
me is, "This is my house and I'll do what I want in it." One day we came home to find him sitting in front of his big screan tv watching Fox news,
his Bible open on his lap. He had a look on his face like he was zoned out on some weird drug or something. As we came into the room he began
ranting at us, cursing, and calling us names. I asked him what the problem was but he couldn't tell me, he just kept yelling and cursing. I pulled
my daughter out of the room and we left for awhile.
That experience sealed my decision to never watch Fox news again! In fact I've considered filming him the next time he's like this and sending a
copy of it to other major news stations around the country, and maybe one to Fox with a note that reads, "Congratulations! You have successfully
Brain washed at least one American!"
