Hannity and Limbaugh are not news, the are entertainment commentators, FOX news is completely different then commentation. Learn the difference.

I disagree with you.

Limbaugh and Hannity and other political talk shows are political commentators, and part of the media news infrastructure. The weird thing is that they actually provide SOME GOOD NEWS and some very good commentary. These guys are very smart. And their personal opinions count.

I think Hannity is actually more inflammatory than Limbaugh, and more likely to engage in pure negative speculation. But they both do it. (I don't listen to them that often, so I might be wrong.)

The problem I see is that, by establishing some record of validity, they are able to state their opinions as fact, and their opinions may be totally wrong. People will buy into false ideas.

Why would Limbaugh, Hannity, others do that? Clearly, to get higher ratings by keeping their shows interesting, so they keep their contracts and make more money.

I think this is very irresponsible, but I don't necessarily think it is malicious. If there actions are really based on malice, and not greed, then these guys are more dangerous than I currently assume, because a highly destructive forces are moderating them.

In that case, if they have malicious intent, the potential for damage is very great. These guys are extremely powerful. The devotion of an angry and powerful person to a negative cause is something to be feared.

REPLY TO - DO NOT WATCH FOXNEWS -
This is EXACTLY TYPICAL of brainwashed individuals that cannot even for an hour or 2 - watch the FACTS and the TRUTHS laid out for all to see.
I originally was voting for Barry HUSSEIN Obama - until I did my research and educated myself - that's what Americans used to do - now the loyalty is to the "Party", just like in Germany - Circa 1940. I in fact was volunteering for Mr. B. Hussein Obama until I started finding out the FACTS- re; The FACT that he supports Partial Birth abortion and even worse - muredering babies after they have survived a failed abortion (which I thought didn't ever happen anymore after abortions were legalized) This is a FACT, and it made me as a Catholic qurstion how I could support someone who is openly for such a gruesome heinous act.
Then I read his book, where he shows open hatred and contempt for whites, jews, and basically anyone not black. This made my head spin -
I know how hard it is to admit to yourself that you may have made a mistake - it's 1000 times HARDER to admit to others, that you have made a mistake.... so I researched more - trying to find out about these drug up years in college he wrote about, tried to find out more about his affiliation to Ayers, and Weather Underground et al. I asked our local organizers for some sort of official info, anything to help me with what I was now not only thinking; in my head - but truly feeling; in my heart - SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME that everything I am finding out about this man is WRONG!!!
The group I was canvassing with were mostly blacks- I asked them about these things- NONE of them knew - OR CARED!!! They did not support the man - they supported the "IDEA" of a black President, that's all they knew and that's all they cared!!! I was hit between the eyes with what I thought was just a madeup term for the angry whites - "REVERSE RACISM" When I even asked our local campaign official for info on what I was finding out - they "ASKED" me to leave - they told me I was not the "TYPE" of person they needed in their volunteer group!! I indicated at that point that I was considering working with the McCain camp -
Their reply was this "GO AHEAD WHITEY!! IF OBAMA LOSES - YOU ALL GONNA DIE ANYHOW!" I got this reacion for merely asking questions that I had about the man and his positions, imagine what Hillary and others got.
I have been with the McCain people for 2 mos. now, and I will tell you this much- I feel so miuch better about myself and my cause- I don't have the anger and the hatred for the other side that I once did working with the "other side" These people are the greatest - we meet and the local HQ, grill hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken, eat a great lunch and then make calls or go knock on doors or stuff envelopes, we do all this while laughin and having FUN!! IT's truly made a difference in my life getting that constant spewing of hatred and anger that was always present at our local Barry Hussein Obama HQ. FYI - ALL the blacks here proudly call him HUSSEIN, or even Osama, the Lion they say.
I looked into that as well - as I will now do fo the rs of my life!!
I will never support ANY PARTY - ANYMORE!!!
That's what FACISTS do - I will from now on research the MAN/Woman and find out if their positions are close enough to my beliefs - before I walk 1 step for them.
I am telling you people right now - THE FOX REPORT on sunday eve- WAS EXACLY ACCURATE- and they know it - the sad part is, none of HIS faithful care. Do I hear Gabriel's horn?

I think one of the issues here is we may not agree on the definition of "smear", because in my opinion this is just wrong in any situation.

I would define smear as evoking strong hateful emotions based upon false or highly distorted accusations. I think it is very similar to "slander", which is universally rejected as a dangerous and even evil practice.

By my definition, nobody should be smeared. Ever.

But you may be using a slightly different meaning of this word "smear". You might be using it in the sense of "looking at all the possible negative traits of someone, and speculating on worst case situations." Or some other definition.

They are putting out the same kind of bs again and again.

Don't let fox brainwash you. Don't just watch fox news for fun. DO NOT WATCH IT AT ALL.


Get real. Look at all the cool aid "tingle up my leg" liberal news networks who mislead the American people every day About John McCain. Foxnews is telling the true life story about the anti-American, socialist, biggoted Barack Hussein Obama.


Your ignorance is amazing. For you to honestly think that half of that slanderous crap is true simply tells me that you are a GOP zombie that has no mind of your own.

Now, before you tag me as a LIBERAL, I have voted GOP the majority of my life. Regretfully I voted four times for Bush. Twice for daddy and twice for sonny boy.

I am a realist that likes to check the facts. "Just the facts mam". You see, the slander that is being said about both candidates by each side is part of the political game that only works on the weak minded.

Since you are obviously buying the propoganda...well....

I'll leave it at that.

I agree, the unfortunate quagmire we all faced with is to make a choice between two bad candidates.....It will take six years to clean out that bunch of lying tricksters in DC....This is the only plan that could work...A state senator has an election every 6 year,within that period there are three house elections 2 years and one presidential election 4 years....If for a period of six years the american people (majority) voted with this slogan "Whoever is in is out"we will have been able to give Washington an enima...


I like your thinking! You should put that on a bumper sticker and hand them out on Nov 4th.

I know, one line post.

You are sooo right. I have turned from a bubbly personality, everything is ok and love everyone to a bitter woman. A hag.
A witch.
I am now jaded.
Thanks to this world.


I can sure relate to that! When I was a sheeple, I was bubbly and happy all the time. Now, I am "a bitter woman. A hag. A witch. I am now jaded."

I think the big losers are the ones who have put their faith in one of these candidates. The 2 party system was created to keep the masses squabbling and this forum post and many others are a testament to that. Both of the parties prop themselves up with the PTB at the top. I believe we are seeing the Black Swan played out to perfection.

I have a better idea. Don't tell me what to watch and not watch.

The pro obama head nodders will blind themselves to anything not pro obama. and the non obama types don't need any more proof for themselves.

So, if OBAMA does have links to terrorists you don't want to know about it?

If he lied about paying for school with student loans, you don't want to know about that?

If large contributions to his campaign fund are coming from IRAN, you don't want to know about that either?

Not only do you not want to know but you don't want to search out both sides of the story so that you can make a well informed opinion on the matter?

I see, because these are just distractions from the REAL issues. None of the above will matter once Obama is President.

yeah...okay.

Fox smears Obama. CNN smears McCain.

Guess what? They BOTH DESERVE IT. Even with the media being completely made up of propaganda and personal agenda, why don't you take the collective of it and realize that both candidates are really sketchy.

Please let us not ALL forget Obama wants more troops sent to AFGHANISTAN. Regardless of which blood sucking tick is elected there will be another war!

It's the only news station where one can get both sides. Besides, when you look at associates of Obama, well, let's just say that "birds of a feather, flock together."

If there was nothing there, then nothing could be presented. I personally think Obama is a creation of the corrupt Chicago political machine. My God, look at his history! He hasn't accomplished one, single thing. Nothing!

I can recollect some pretty talkers that seemingly came out of nowhere in the historical record, and did they ever cause a lot of deaths, directly or indirectly.

Naw, I'll continue to watch. There's a reason they are #1.

Iraq is the wrong war. Have you forgotten that? What's gotten into you?

It's not that I don't want to know about, it's that these accusations are false and they're attacks. It's a form of racism.

They're trying to paint Obama as a different candidate, that he's different from us. That's what they are trying to do to get new voters to stop paying attention to Obama.
