Many of the "liberals" here on ATS claim to be the real authorities on FOX News, so that only leaves me with two conclusions:

1) They must watch the FOX channel a hell of a lot more than I do.

2) They are only parroting what someone else claims, and can't, or won't, think for themselves.

I honestly feel the correct answer is "2" though.

I gave you a star for your bravery.

I have been personally involved with the media for many years when I was politically active, and my critique of it comes from that experience. You can not trust any main stream media, they are not about telling you the truth, they are about making money. Even if they are not purposely lying for political reasons, they do it simply to get the story printed. There is mass competition between journalists to get their stories printed, and that causes the truth to be often neglected in favour of sensationalism and BS.

It's not just Fox, it's all of them, equally. Which one you think is more honest has more to do with your own brand of political misunderstanding than anything else.

Actually, if yu want to know if they are being bashed or are actually lying.
You could examine the links and use your common sense.
You do not have to, free thinking is encouraged.

I knew you couldn't do it without the insults! Now... who is really doing the finger pointing?

Wise people ignore stereotypes BECAUSE there are exceptions. They don't use exceptions to justify the stereotype... like you just did. That says a lot about you. Thank you.

See ya,

Tell that to the folks in the UK.

Where Sharia law is having it's affect.


What? Is that sarcasm, or a joke? If not, where did you hear that bollocks?

Anyway, I trust the BBC News service, in fact, I believe it's one of the world leaders when it comes to delivering news from all corners of the world, and despite what people may think, it's not controlled by the government, in fact, I have often seen its news readers lay into MP's with some pretty hard questions.

And once again:

Yeah buddy... YouTube is the place to find the truth:
Chemtrails=About 171,000 results
Aliens=About 292,000 results
Nubiru=About 109,000 results
Planet X=About 154,000 results
Obama is an alien=About 39,100 results

Using your logic, all of the above must be true.

See ya,

Fox news?

nation.foxnews.com...

Or The Sun, also owned by Rupert Murdoch...

www.thesun.co.uk...

In fact almost all of your 'news' comes from one company...

News Corporation

Doesn't that tell you something?

My dad loved fox. Can't really have a political discussion without it turning into some stupid fight with him.

Seem familiar, O'Reilly much?

Any idiot who titles his book, "Culture Warrior" seriously needs to re-evaluate his motivations.

Actually I dont care for O'Reilly or Hannity.

I watch Megan Kelly and used to watch Beck when he was still on.

What specifically was my insult? I'd like to know exactly was this insult was that I delivered.... was it an insult for me to say that OP called us all socialists for not liking Fox News, when he in fact he does not know the specifics of any our political leanings? Because actually, THAT was the insult. In fact, it was exactly and definitively stereotyping when he called us all socialists for not watching Fox News. But of course it's fine for him to stereotype us since you agree with him regarding his news station of choice. (As I stated previously, I am anything but a socialist. I am a staunch constitutionalist and I said earlier that all MSM is bull#)

I guess OP was right, there are a lot of double standards in this thread.

I don't read crap like that, most Brits will tell you the Sun, like most of the tabloids, twist stories to suit themselves.

The BBC does not, the BBC is not owned by that corporation.

Most sensible people in the UK avoid trash like the Sun (except page 3, I do like page 3
)

Hey just wondering, do you get FOX in the UK?
What networks do you get?

You don't want me to engage you. Keep your bombastic hokum to yourself, please. I'm not particularly a proponent of floccinaucinihilipipification in any form, but I am more than capable of responding accordingly.

Now, if you please, address the facts and statistics addressed in my last post, and keep your one liner snide remarks inside your own head.

You'll find many of us are mate.

But it's easier to stereotype people in order to dismiss what any of them say. The media takes the most outrageous and stupid ideas of the group and uses that to stereotype the whole lot.

Just like the OP tried to use Hitler to demonise socialism. Even IF Adolf was a socialist, it doesn't make socialism bad. In fact socialism has nothing to do with being good or bad, it is simply an economic system, and really guarantees nothing. Just like capitalism can not guarantee you freedom. Capitalism can be as totalitarian as any economic system. In fact I believe capitalism is a totalitarian system, cleverly disguised.

Not one of your links proves that sharia law has taken over the UK.

Just because "Lord Phillips, the most senior judge in England and Wales, has said that principles of sharia law could play a role in some parts of the legal system." doesn't mean it will, and even if it did, it would apply to Muslims only, and would only be applicable in small zones. I doubt it will ever come to that though, there would be uproar.

So again I say, it's bollocks.

You like to dish it out, but you can't take it, huh. Why does that not surprise me?

It appears you are only trolling as well, but I'm above telling you to go away.
