I've taken a whack at all of them, some however appear to have a partisan agenda....


WHAT? FOX has a conservative partisan agenda? Has the media been aler-. . . . . . oh, sorry.


Next thing you'll be saying is that MSNBC has a progressive partisan agenda! *snort*

There is a little more moral value in not waiting until they stop paying you to tattle, however. I do understand why people dont think this guy is very admirable. It doesnt mean he is lying, however.

But if he were really a good guy, he would have come out with a statement while he was still on the payroll. Its one of the problems with us, (humans) we really have a hard time putting principle ahead of material gain. Hence, all you see around us.

All you have to do to know stuff is just made up on Fox, is watch it once. You don't need some shady figure to tell you that.

And for all the people who say "CNN and MSNBC are biased as well!", so? Of course they're biased, but what does that have to do with Fox news, and more importantly, them being completely wrong and operating under a tag-line that says "FAIR AND BALANCED"

Seriously though, I'd recommend watching Fox news to anyone when there aren't any good comedy shows on.

Gomer.

Yeah, could be a liberal plant or a disgruntled former employee, but funny anyway. It's all an illusion....

I am so sick of these "anonymous insiders". Really if you want to stand for the truth and make such claims and accusations, step out. I do understand that in certain circumstances but this guy along with the other anonymous individual that claimed Obama was CIA or whatever, I mean really now, anybody can go behind a shadow andmake all kinds of claims.

Now we are well aware that fox news is biased, but yes actual evidence is needed for whether they are making all their news reports up as there is a difference between slanting the news, being deceptive, and completely making things up, and this guy needs to come out and show his credentials.

sad to see people still pick a horse in the media race. they are all the same show basically, just depends on your slant of poison. 90% of every story on ATS is never on the news, and no Im not talking bout the ufos and swamp ape stuff, but the real interesting things. how many times you gonna let these people shovel crap like lindsay lohan and 24/7 2-party politics down your throat??

folks like murdoch and soros are on a path to dominate the entire global news. eventually everything will be fabricated.

and just to clarify on your statement:

that is EXACTLY what happens
with wikileaks news stories.

somebody behind a shadow sends
a file into wikileaks and Assange
has NO idea who sent it to him.

And he publishes it world wide.

that makes wikileaks a perfect
disinfo outlet.

Although, technically, since you yourself do not actually see much of anything in the worlds daily events, ANYTHING could be manufactured and disinfo.

Philosophers have been arguing for hundreds of years about how we know, do we know, does any one know? And one excellent argument points out the simple truth that your personal experience is infinitesimal compared to the hearsay evidence you receive in the course of your life.

Virtually everything you think you know is no more than heresay. And COULD be a total lie. But it probably isnt. The argument concludes that we use probability to decide what to believe and what not to believe. How you calculate probability is personal and depends on a lot of thing, not the least of which is how well you think, and how much data you gather.

But in short, almost anything meets your criteria for possibly being manufactured and disinfo. Remember Santa. People you trust can and will lie to you.

Yeah...Source is kept anonymous by Media Matters who is funded by Soros specifically to bring down Glenn Beck and Fox news because it doesn't fit with his Global socialist narrative.

yeah...I'll believe this


This is not to say that i agree with everything Fox News does..but I have become increasingly suspicious of the left wing media in this country. Especially after their disgusting display of salivating over the notion that Jared Loughner could have been a TP member.

I will never forgive that, and I will never believe a word they say again. At least FNC was tactful enough to cover the story as an actual story without injecting a political narrative.

Santa never lied to me, he said if I was a 'good' boy I would get that pony!

Mamma's gonna worry, I've been a bad bad boy...
No use saying sorry, it's something I enjoy...

There's always next year.

Reminds me of that old riddle:

3 men are met walking down the street.
1 says, "I'm a liar."
Another says, "I always tell the truth."
The third says, "The other two are liars."

Which one is telling the truth?

Fox, CNN, Etc. All equally ambiguous in their "stories".

Simply keep an open mind, no matter what....

I for one wouldn't come out with anything while they're still paying my salary - I'd keep feeding my kids.

Coperate media are all played by the same puppet master. If they don't report what they should and not report what they shouldn't, then the naughty boys will not be let in on the inside circles of major political meetings, Then they don't get the big pay checks they end up working for independent newspapers on far less pay trying to tell the world what is going on and then getting ridiculed to hell - Yep the Puppet Masters have it all wrapped up.

Unfortunately the public is so fickle that I don't think it would help either. CNN has been caught outright faking live Iraq war footage from American studios and yet they are still the number one source for news in the US.

LOL I don't believe this at all.
An "anonymous" employee...
Media Matters? Yeah right.
This just another attempt by the liberal left media
to steal viewers from FOX. Who by the way is
completely destroying the other news networks.
I'm not in love with FOX to set the record straight.
But I've found the information relayed from this network
to be way more accurate when it comes to reporting
just the facts.

Now if only we could confirm that the "anonymous employee" was truly an employee at FOX...

Or maybe this story is entirely fabricated by the liberal left? NOOOOOO....stop all that crazy talk!

"Name was kept anonymous" + Media Matters (Soros / DNC) + Ex-Employee = Propaganda no thinking person would pay any attention too.

True motivation = One side wants to silence the others speech and only believes in Free Speech when it applies to Speech they approve of.

Fact = Both sides do this, Right and Left and it just happens to be the Left this time.

Who believes it coming from either side? = Partisan's who let their Party do their thinking for them.

I have no doubt some of what he says is true but it is not limited to FOX news.
I am sure that all the media outlets hold themselves to the same professional level.

This is a great story for people who want to bash FOX or are on the "other side" but don't you believe for a minute everyone else doesn't do it also.

Absolutely true.
Fox learned from the best. The pisser for most people is that fox is lying for the other team.
