Just for the record, I was not quite finished looking the thread over.

Also for the record, this thread needs to get back on topic. ...and since some have forgotten what that topic was...

Here it is again...


John Stewart Shows how Stupid FOX are.......Again

Well he makes fun of everybody. If you liked him and actually watched his show you would know that.


I did say he went after Obama. With kid gloves. If you think he spends half as much time going after him as Fox or Beck you're a fool.



It's funny how the people who don't like John Stewart......the people that DON'T watch his show......think they know what his show is about every night.


I don't care for him much now, but I do catch his show from time to time. Assuming I don't is ignorance on your part and I know that's not the case, eh? I never claimed to watch his show EVERY night, but when I do he's ragging on Fox or some other Conservative(or imitation conservative) group. It's funny when you agree with him, but with the things you don't, it's easy to see how he fails to represent the other side in a equal view. Show a clip, add a funny one liner and let the crowd laugh. And that's fine. It's a comedy show. Hence, why I don't care for it.



Not saying I watch every day. But, I've seen enough of the show over the last decade to know he makes fun of everybody.

Like I said. He does. But to different degrees. Maybe it's coincidence I only catch him on Fox bashing rants. Like I said, I only catch him from time-to-time. And I have seen him go after Obama and some liberals. But it's usually not with any hint of tensity. Fox is an easy target. I'd just don't think he has the ability to go after the other side like he does Fox and Republicans. That's all I'm saying.

I hate to point out the obvious, but the headline itself should probably read "Fox News TextIs rather than Are. I don't mean to nitpick, and perhaps maybe Saul Alinsky never covered good grammar when spreading silly mockery.

This thread has grown in many directions, but went wrong right from the start. I am not ashamed to watch Fox News. I am not ashamed to watch Stewart. But let's face it, this post originated from someone who spends much more time on Comedy Central than they do watching news.

This is America -- sort of, and I do not care if someone is liberal or conservative. But either way, try to do it with dignity and real conviction, and perhaps all the while referring to a 5th grade grammar book


Cheers, and may all your base belong...

another fine example of FOX "News" reporting the "facts" they want us to hear:

what?

Glenn Beck did not know he scheduled his "restore america's honor" speech in the same place and on the same date as MLK's "I Have A Dream" Speech?

"i find that totally plausible"
-jon stewart

Glenn Beck didn't know MLK gave that speech on August 28th?

That would be the consideraton ONLY for the bastardized version of English that is uniquely American (I am American, BTW...but, I also have travelled, and have an awareness of other versions of the English language and grammar).

The use of the plural verb are is actually correct, when referring to the collective GROUP of FOX 'news'. ( I put 'news' in quotes because...well, do do otherwise would give THEM too much credit!
)

It IS a sort of semantics, this difference....not really an issue, since in common usage, BOTH can be considered to be "correct"...just a matter of taste.

Like, spelling too......"license"/"licence" -- "specialized"/"specialised" -- etc.


( I don't mean to nitpick... )

I compiled a list of videos containing Glenn Beck’s 8-28 “Restoring Honor” rally for a thread.

It contains pre-event video commentary, crowd interviews, videos of the event & speeches given, and a post event interview on FOX this morning with Chris Wallace and Glenn Beck.

The Opening Post is cut and dry, and I just introduce the videos:
Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" D.C. Event. Aug 28th, 2010. Many Videos.

Of course I will still participate in this thread, and voice my personal opinions.

Thought I would share,

I think you are right -- the use of plural is not as straightforward as would first appear: consider these:

police, aircraft -- both can be used with a verb in plural.

To those always arguing that some of the shows aren't news:

Tell me, why is the word "news" still showing up even during non-news shows?



I mean...seriously?

Same could said about MSNBC, CNN, etc....its the name of the network. I am not sticking up for the fact, just pointing out you are trying really hard to justify something that is just silly.

CNN and MSNBC both don't do that





I'm not saying they're not more center/left oriented...but they are NOT trying to sell commentary as news. And they don't mix it in a way where people could mistake it as news.

Fox LABELS their commentary programs as news! Big difference

And you could not pick up on the satire, albeit, very bad attempt at it, then who is the idiot watching the boob tube thinking that its news?

I agree that there should be a clear distinction between news/commentary, but I guarentee you shows on CNN along with FOX continually mix news/commentary all the time.

By the by: The 1/2 Hour News Hour was an American television news satire show on the Fox News Channel.

Does Bill O'Reilly or the other commentary shows perpetuate and market themselves as news? Just wondering because your argument has some gaping holes.

ETA: Bah plus you use a known horrible show from FOX to present your arguement, then put up stills of the other news orginizations....looks like BS, smells like BS, must be BS....

Yup, the "news" label is there. If they would clearly state it's NOT news...why is there a "NEWS" label during those shows. And why are there none on the other channels during the obviously biased commentaries?

Do you know what CNN stands for? The Fox News logo spinning is a branding/marketting item on the screen and does not depict the current programming as 'news'. HLN (HeadLine News), CNN (Cable News Network). I see those labels on shows such as Anderson Cooper, Nancy Grace and Larry King Live.

You are making a false statement either ignorantly or willingly.

Again, I can care less about all the news networks, but will stand up to someone complaining about propaganda while presenting exactly the same thing.

So MrXYZ, what say you about my other claims in my post above? Or did you ignore that portion?

the news tickers across the bottom give them some justification for calling anything on the screen "news".

but, there is a difference in the information across the ticker scrolling across the bottom of Larry King at CNN and whoever that other guy is from Fox "news" (ya, i know his name, no spin zone o'reilly factor).

i was watching the ticker across the bottom of Fox the past two days.

alot about the "Restoring Honor" numbers and stuff was the news, apparently.

jon stewart picked a hell of a time to go on a 10 day break.

Which to that I agree, but not to the claims the other poster was making. Again, may it be Fox, CNN, etc., claiming that the logo says "Fox News", which is the name of the company, shows all the time is not indicitive to the programming of the moment.

You will have no complaint here otherwise. While I am not big on slogans, the sites main goal here is to deny ignorance, yet here we have someone that only sees the Fox news side and not the other MSMs same, albeit more subtle tactics.

spreading silly mockery?


"Are" is for plural use. correct?
"Is" is for singular use. correct?

"you" is singular. correct?

you is responsible for this. is a correct sentence grammatically, correct?

you are responsible for this. is an incorrect sentence, correct?
