Yeah it is that simple it is called free speech for a reason your free to take it or leave it.

Free to agree with it and free not to agree with it or the world do people want to live in is where the only thing on the web and news is viewpoints that agree with what we think?

You missed the point. By saying that these women were asking to be raped, she's assuming a-priori that a good many of these service men are potential rapists.

She's implying that the servicemen are, in general, uncontrolled animals.


Hmmm... well, for arguments sake, since a good many of these service men are willing to be murderers (but murder is OK when big bro says its OK, of course), is it much of a stretch to assume that many of them could also be willing to be rapists, if the opportunity presented itself?

I have to agree, although in my opinion what the women says is abhorrent and i disagree with her, it's her freedom of speech and if thats the kind of thing Fox viewers like, you cant really complain, just don't watch it. Fox is a terrible "news" station in my opinion and for that reason i would never watch it, well only for a laugh. It really does appeal to a warped mind.

Free speech is one thing, parading as a news organization and telling lies is another. There should be laws or a rating system in place that signify the trust worthiness of a news organization. Look into why there is no Fox News in Canada.

It's not a matter of free speech.

I will quote my same post to you:


It's not that simple and you have to know it. We don't just not like it, we are fundamentally opposed to the idea. It doesn't end at not watching it, we have to keep track of their lies in order to combat the ignorance they spew. If we don't keep aware then how do we know what kind of b.s. is being given to the people that are unlucky enough to still believe American media still tells unbiased truths? It causes problems far beyond what simply not watching, can cure.


It's not an issue of freedom of speech either. That is a guaranteed right. There is no impediment on free speech by requiring a company to tell the truth if they are going to be considered a news network. If they still want to tell lies then penalize them by not allowing them to call themselves a news station. Free speech is still guaranteed, it just protects the civilians also to put a system in place. News stations should be penalized for lying.

Lol.. yeah that makes a lot of sense. Actually what you propose is more akin to Nazi Germany's propaganda than anything I have suggested. My suggestions actually protect against it. I guess the constitution is a little above some peoples reading comprehension level.
Too bad.

oh look, more level headed and unbiased "information" from FOX. I am glad I looked at that video. I have a new pride in my countries journalism and conscience. Too much rape is far worse than just a little for sure.

These "complainers" are just supposed to die not have people protect them from illegal things. No, just put on a soldier costume and kill people, not be human beings or follow their countries laws. Feminist pigs, acting all like "heeeeey Raaaaape me, raaaaaape me." They are the real problem. Thanks FOX, you just went up a notch in my book. Good for you.

Only ignorant people ape the now many years old and tired excuse that Fox has employed when called on thier BS.

Jon Stewart sums up the difference between Fox "News" and "Opinion" ...or lack thereof...well here..

Joseph Goebbels was his name. Hitlers Propaganda Minister. If we are going to go all Reductio Ad Hitlerum, we might as well cast the play correctly. Fox aggressively engages in right wing propaganda.

I have no issue with their voiving of opinions, but lies is another matter and to do so all the while posing as news, seems particularly offensive.

They shoudn't be banned, but they should be held to account by those with enough intelligence to recognize their BS and this OP is a reasonable contribution to that reckoning.

Rape of civilians occurs in every war, there is not much that can or will be done to stop this. What is surprising and not so normal is rape of fellow servicemen. This can be stopped, but I doubt much action will be taken to stop it. The military is more or less a patriarchal system, there is little room or sympathy for women's equality.

Everyone needs to chillax for a minute. First, no such thing as News anymore, by MSM, we get what TPTB allows MSM to give us. YOU GUYS KNOW THIS ALREADY! Second, do not women gather in New York City every year during fleet week just to have Patriot Penis inside them? Is it not possible some of these Over-active Ovaries decided one week of Soldier Semen just isn't enough, so they join the military in order to have an endless supply of Warrior Wang? Third, are you implying a woman's desire for sex is less insane than a man's? I've seen porn. Women like to SNIP and love to be SNIPPED hard-same as a man. Fourth, rape claims are like UFO pics on ATS-the majority being false. Chick wakes up sober and is no longer attracted to her prey-it's not rape, it's regret. Rape IS horrible. But most women who are raped keep quiet because of all the false claims that are made. Want to avoid rape in the military? Vote Ron Paul 2012!!

I though her statements were fine and the numbers back them up.
Seems a few women like to complain about everything.
If a woman goes to war and doesnt expect to get raped she is kidding herseslf. Its just a matter of fact.

Men are trained in war to be less compassionate and more primal.

Free speech is one thing, parading as a news organization and telling lies is another. There should be laws or a rating system in place that signify the trust worthiness of a news organization.

Sadly, the opposite is true. Fox has gone to a higher court to get the permission to lie to it's audience and censor the truth. If you still trust news from a organization which does this, you deserve to be conned and misled.

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.

Exactly. That was my first thought when I listened to her ignorant reporting/discussion/opinion/whatever. But, see, say this, and it's back to the gays in the military issue...instead of a HUMAN issue as it should be addressed and discussed. Just can't win for trying.

The people who get air time in this country...just wow.

Fox news? Was this being reported as news at the top and bottom of the hour or was this part of the typical opinion based show that is used as filler by all the cable news networks?

For all the folks crying about fox news, please tell me what network you pimp and I will have no problem pulling up stuff from your network of choice that should make you cringe.

Only ignorant people confuse the programming on these networks for "news". Those ignorant useful idiots are pitted against each other by simplistic methods that are beyond their understanding.

If you like I can pull up a ton of things from CNN, msnbc, abc, NBC, CBS........that will make the same thread as you just did here.

Oh yeah, cry cry cry fox news is so evil...cry cry.....never mind the fact that in order to come to that conclusion means your ignorant of reality.

And yes, I dislike fox news. But I also have the ability to see reality, which allows me to post the way I do. The sad thing is there are too many ignorant people out there that lack the ability to see reality in the wider sense......thus we get threads about people crying about one news organization over another, while ignoring the root cause....which is demand. Get it?
