Yeah sure, EVERYBODY who watches FOX is is an idiot......

Just like ALL British people have bad teeth like Austin Powers,

All Black people are on Welfare,

All Asian people know Kung-Fu,

All southern people have cars up on blocks in their front yard,

All Gay people wear studded leather collars and parade up & down the street,

All white people work on wall street,

All Muslim people want to cut the heads off Americans,

All Russians are alcoholic Vodka drinkers,

All bears crap in the woods, (remember, as true as that sounds some crap in zoo's)

Do not lump everyone into any group. There is always an exception to any rule.

I've never watched fox news. Haven't had tv in 9 years now so that's not a suprise....BUT.....I love fox.
It get's the left wing hopping up and down in screaming meemies and makes things so much more entertaining for me.

You see, I am aware that fox is as right as the rest are left. It's just fun to see somebody else get fed up with bs for a change.



Except there is no left-wing news station in America. Certainly not one that's as left as Fox is right. Maybe centre-left at the extreme best. But that'd be an absolute stretch.

Well most people on here are conspiracy theorists. Should we avoid acknowledging the obvious because there's some exceptions?

The majority who watch Fox are idiots. The minority are exceptions to the rule. That Fox as a news outlet is a platform for morons.

But, but, the spin stops there at Faux!

I'm with ya on this tirade, and it goes for most of the media outlets, but yea personally, I think Faux is the loudest and most powerful so therefore they are the biggest hypocrites and dividers, IMHO.
Most of my family are Faux-nauts too, which creates a little volatility at family gatherings. I just turn it off, but the message still resonates thru family, friends and co-workers. I am here in Oregon, but am from Louisiana, so my friends and family settings are like night and day in their differences, and I have to struggle to keep quite when people start regurgitating Hannity and Beck as gospel, blah! Surprised? Only at how people do not do their own research, and condemn opposing viewpoints without even determining how one arrived at their conclusions. If it goes against their view, then they must be the far left secular progressive cancer of the Earth that must be removed, according to Beck at last years CPAC


Peace,
spec

And speaking of Faux News viewers...

It still amazes the living crap out of me that you Bible Thumpers are even on a site like this! If there was ever a definition of closed minds, it would be the people who believe that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree... Wait, that sounds alot like a Fox News story... What would Bill O'Reilly say? "Tides come in, tides go out..."


wait...so they have a closed mind because they believe in a cosmic jewish zombie?

sounds like the definition of an open mind to me.
you know, something other then the tangible, tactile world.

The Bible is the complete truth and nothing but. All the disasters happening now are evidence of it. So laugh and scoff. But you won't be soon enough!

The Media Can Legally Lie

By Mike Gaddy
Writer for lewrockwell.com.

In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.

Back in December of 1996, Jane Akre and her husband, Steve Wilson, were hired by FOX as a part of the Fox “Investigators” team at WTVT in Tampa Bay, Florida. In 1997 the team began work on a story about bovine growth hormone (BGH), a controversial substance manufactured by Monsanto Corporation. The couple produced a four-part series revealing that there were many health risks related to BGH and that Florida supermarket chains did little to avoid selling milk from cows treated with the hormone, despite assuring customers otherwise.

According to Akre and Wilson, the station was initially very excited about the series. But within a week, Fox executives and their attorneys wanted the reporters to use statements from Monsanto representatives that the reporters knew were false and to make other revisions to the story that were in direct conflict with the facts. Fox editors then tried to force Akre and Wilson to continue to produce the distorted story. When they refused and threatened to report Fox's actions to the FCC, they were both fired.(Project Censored #12 1997)

Akre and Wilson sued the Fox station and on August 18, 2000, a Florida jury unanimously decided that Akre was wrongfully fired by Fox Television when she refused to broadcast (in the jury's words) “a false, distorted or slanted story” about the widespread use of BGH in dairy cows. They further maintained that she deserved protection under Florida's whistle blower law. Akre was awarded a $425,000 settlement. Inexplicably, however, the court decided that Steve Wilson, her partner in the case, was ruled not wronged by the same actions taken by FOX.

FOX appealed the case, and on February 14, 2003 the Florida Second District Court of Appeals unanimously overturned the settlement awarded to Akre. The Court held that Akre’s threat to report the station’s actions to the FCC did not deserve protection under Florida’s whistle blower statute, because Florida’s whistle blower law states that an employer must violate an adopted “law, rule, or regulation." In a stunningly narrow interpretation of FCC rules, the Florida Appeals court claimed that the FCC policy against falsification of the news does not rise to the level of a "law, rule, or regulation," it was simply a "policy." Therefore, it is up to the station whether or not it wants to report honestly.

Trust me. They're all the same. There is no truth and ethics in any of the TV News Channels. I love BBC and few others around the world but definitely not the local channels. They suck big time.

Most of the Fox viewers are conservative Christians who read that fictional book, what's it called? Oh, yeah...

The Bible.


When I read this at OP-ED News, it gave me a chuckle and I thought it might just make you grin.

If you expect perfection, you're doomed to despair.


And yet, it is you who despairs, singing the lamentations of a bygone era where the news presented then was in the form you preferred. The news and how it has been reported has seen many cycles, and the phrase "yellow journalism" is as old as the Gilded Age, which should give you a clue on the dubious nature of news and its presentation.

Was the news Cronkite or early Brokaw presented better than the news presented today in the United States? Somewhat different, but better? You are entitled to your opinions, and you are entitled to believe in fairy tales if you wish.

Nice!

Apparently I set off a bit of a firestorm, but if you read the comments of most FOX readers they seem to be of the "Praise God and pass the ammo" crowd, rather than the "WWJD" crowd.
