so many of the comments about fox news start with the phrase, "i don't watch fox news but..." well I do watch fox news. first of all, let me point out that it is a cable news channel, comparable to CNN. it is not a broadcast network like ABC, CBS, NBC, so there is no real comparison in people reached.

i don't watch the news segments of fox news, but the commentators. It would be easy to believe fox news is "in the pocket of the republican party" because they do present the republican as well as conservative, libertarian and independent point of view. They always balance these with liberal and democrat points of view. the reason you are confused is because the main networks never present republicans at all. try watching any of the shows and you will discover that if the commentator has a particular viewpoint, the opposite will be presented by a guest.

This ABC broadcasting from the white house on a particular issue is really scary. i don't know what it means for the future of the broadcast media.

whats wrong with you people. Always so quick to jump to conclusions. The plan seems simple.. He wants to bring this plan home to you so what better wat then to do it where he lives. Its not a bad thing to run a tv show from the white house. when it happens for good then be worried. He is changing it up a bit doing things that normal old presidents wouldnot do. relax he isnt taking over abc, besides that network stinks and it needs the ratings did you ever think about that! Have a great day and smile its not the end of the world. (yet)

It’s clear that ABC is the 21st century Pravda and we are seeing the rise of the new world leader in our new world order. Americans aren’t going to stop this, most of them are hoping beyond hope that Obama will usher in a new era of world peace and prosperity and they are willing to give up some “absolute” standards like a free and independent press in order to achieve their “utopia”. I have never seen such a “land grab” of private enterprise and financial institutions before in American history. We are watching the fall of western society and we don’t even know it. Our dollar is failing, our investments are tanking, our homes are bottoming in value, yet in all of this we are so desperate for Obama to succeed that we see the ever “increasing” unemployment numbers each month and we are encouraged to find optimism because the new unemployment numbers are a little less then what was feared. We in all of this shouldn’t be surprised that a news agency like ABC would sell their souls to gain the “great one’s “ favor and become his “propaganda machine”, in fact we should all be surprised that the rest of the news world hasn’t done it to this extreme as well.

You know, if the government would just make it a law that health insurance companies cannot turn customers away, and that premiums must be affordable (within a certain percentage of salary)...we wouldn't have this problem.

The problem is is that the insurance industry is so freaking powerful, and gives so much money to the corrupt congress, that no congressman/senator will ever dare bringing up a bill that could restrict health insurance companies.

They say that the government shouldn't get invovled in private business! Ha!! Why is it ok for them to make laws saying that everyone must be covered by car insurance, but it's not ok to say that everyone must be covered by health insurance?

If the congress and senate just got some balls and stood up to the insurance lobby, we wouldn't have the current problems we have. But they don't. And so now, because the insurance companies refuse to get ethical, and the US government refuses to bite the hand that feeds them, we're in this mess....and now we have to have government run health care.

edit:

Added thought:

It's discrimination what health insurance companies do, and someone should bring forth a law suit to the supreme court saying that discrimination against, race, color, creed, religion, and HEALTH STATUS should be illegal in the eyes of the law.

Well, I do watch FOXNEWS, mainly because it is the only major network not in the pocket of Obama. Of course, those on the left love to criticize FOXNEWS, but can't see the bias that exists in MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC.
Of course, they'll never admit it, but more and more, FOXNEWS was right about Obama. Even Obama's supporters are beginning to see what a fraud he perpetrated upon them. Look at all the broken promises, and about faces he has been involved with lately- Iraq, Gitmo, Middle East, "No more lobbyists, and the list goes on.

Well, what do you expect? The "girlfriend" has been sleeping in his bed every night anyway. He might as well go ahead and move "HER" in!

I agree, and everyday some new, in your face, Obama disaster surfaces, I mean, it's amazing watching all this unfold.

you all sure do seem upset, but i bet America will still be here in ten years.

the melodrama and sensationalism... this place and its constituents, and others like it, do more to hurt serious conspiracy research and legitimate political discussion than any shadowy NWO could ever hope to.

I don't know if you are paying attention, but the least of my worries is a NWO or anything else.

The rate things are going there will not be and America. There is so many things going on under the surface that many people are not paying attention too.

This ABC - Obama stunt is a communist move, ask anybody that has ever lived through an oppressive regime or lived through the stages of a dictator bringing in a communist system to their country.

most of the republican people think that gov't health care is bad probably dont know that england has a good health system and its ran by there gov't I think that if the gov had a health system it would do two thing
1- save all business money,time,also cut down lawsuits
2- save the U.S. from having to pay for health care 2 times A- we pay for gov't employees and military health care. B- then we pay for medicare and medicaid

you should open your mind before you open your mouth

I don't understand the optimism. When have you ever had a government agency run things as they should. All you will see is coruption because the accountability is not their. You have never seen a demonstration of a government who actually believes and cares for its people why do think they are beginning now. I just don't understand. Because you want it to work does not mean it will. Mind power and optimism is not the order of the day. Let us be realistic in our perseptions here, please.

Oops, never mind, I read the original news story wrong.

I personally wouldn't mind a government run health care. Actually, I think the only people that really care are health insurance companies who fear they will have major competition. It will put a lot of health care insurance companies out of business, but I'm pretty certain it wont put ALL of them out of business.



[edit on 16-6-2009 by 0nce 0nce]


That's the point. Government controlled health care/insurance will wipe out competition. There will eventually be no other choice.A health care monopoly,where you get the care ordered not necessarily the care needed.
Think of Government run health care like Wal-mart. Wal-mart came in and under cut competition,putting smaller concerns out of business. Now Wal-mart pretty well has the market sown up with little competition anymore. They set their prices.
Socialized health care,yet another nail in the coffin of free enterprise!!!!

And they can shove their national healthcare where the sun don't shine (edit to say, SIDEWAYS). People are wayyy over medicated as it is. If I need doctoring I do it myself most of the time. Hell only 30-40 years ago you had to be at death's door to see a doctor. National healthcare is just another of the NWO way to get total and complete control of everything about you.

Its all acting, and they play their parts, and i may add, very well.

I seriously dont think the MSM actually engages in their daily rhetoric. some for Obama, some against, and not go home and have vile to puke after their "news". Unless the pay is astronomical, or they have been threatened, i just dont think they could be as stupid as to believe what they say.


Any way, this is a Communist move and its so in your face. I guess it doesnt matter anymore. The stupid public will put up with and watch Charlie peddle his wears.


You got it. The left and right, liberal vs. conservative is just a ploy to keep us divided and weaker. Divide and conquer as they say. There is no left and right just the political elite and the rest of us.

They are not even trying to hide the fact that the MSM in America is nothing but a shill for the government agenda. ABC news should be ashamed about this government infomercial on their network. True journalism is just about dead in this country.

NBC has reported "live from the white house" in may, i think. now its ABC turn. there is no need to go to wal-mart and buy all the guns and beer they have.


i do like guns and beer but, most crackers give them a bad name.

And notice how the story isn't on FOX or MSNBC as it is ALL about Korea.

I'm just fed up with all the bs on how they conduct the news...one story constantly to avoid the bigger picture.

I knew they'd do this tho as soon as the switch to DTV was made, I just thought it would take them a little while longer, but apparently not since it starts later this month. And you gotta know this is only the beginning. I think some huge event will come that will take away freedom of the press soon. You can see they're positioning their chess pieces on a more quicker scale now.

With this story, Tony Blair's one world religion movement starting and Maitreya apparently coming any time now, it's all getting quite scary.

I have to laugh every time someone attacks something as "Communist." Most people don't even know what it means and use it as a blanket for any kind of fascist, socialist, or totalitarian belief. But it's not.

Though anchoring news from the White House is something out of a totalitarian regime. Where am I, is this America?

Well mister, since you seem to be such an expert on Communism, I am prepared for a total and complete lesson in it right here and now.
