To Fox News: You Lie!!

I am – Hercules!!
Over photos of a Saturday "anti-tax" rally in Washington, a new Fox News ad asks: "How Did ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN Miss This Story?" The ad -- placed by the News Corp.-owned channel in the Washington Post as well as the News Corp.-owned Wall Street Journal and New York Post -- features the tagline: “We cover all the news.” From the Associated Press:
Fox's taunt drew immediate reaction from the other networks, all of whom quickly offered up descriptions, transcripts of news reports and video proof of their rally coverage. Some denounced Fox for falsehoods.
From the Washington Post:
ABC spokesman Jeffrey Schneider described the ad as "outrageous and false." NBC spokeswoman Lauren Kapp said that "the facts . . . prove it wrong." CNN spokeswoman Edie Emery called the ad "blatantly false."
Michael Tammero, vice president of marketing for Fox News, defended the ad in an email:
"Generally speaking, it's fair to say that from the tea party movement ... to Acorn ... to the march on 9/12, the networks either ignored the story, marginalized it or misrepresented the significance of it altogether."
CNN’s Rick Sanchez expressed his outrage on the air: I’d encourage anyone with an interest in this story to have a look here at “OutFoxed,” an astonishing 2004 documentary which examines how News Corp.-owned media outlets go about their newsgathering. It should be seen by anyone who’s ever watched a News Corp.-owned channel or read a News Corp.-owned publication: Remember also it was News Corp.’s The Sun that on Aug. 26 printed the lie that Megan Fox “has signed” to play Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s next “Batman” movie. The actress’ publicist and several Warner Bros. executives confirmed within hours of story’s publication that no discussions between Megan Fox and Nolan or the Batman producers had taken place. By all accounts Nolan has not yet written a script for any sequel to “The Dark Knight,” and the director has not yet indicated whether Catwoman would be a character in the next film.

    AICN is getting political? Seriously?

    by MSJanke

    You're going to get political here now? Give me a break. FYI: all major media outlets are less-than-honest or make bad mistakes at times. I don't come here for politics and if you start spouting liberal ideology like this on a regular basis I won't come here at all.

    by br1947

    It's annoying as hell and completely off topic, but this is not even remotely the first political story on here. No one is unbiased, even if they try. The most neutral opinion you'll ever receive on here comes from people who just do not give a fuck either way, they just want to cover entertainment news.

    Hey, Rick, tell us about that time you killed a man after driving home drunk from that Dolphin's game! What? You won't? Oh, gee, that's too bad. And Fox is right, the networks didn't give that protest any airtime except to highlight the odd sign or nutter to make the whole crowd look bad. Then they underreport the crowd size. Yes, the networks missed the story completely. And the ACORN story, and the State Deptartment's bullying of Honduras after their perfectly legal removal of a shitbag corrupt dictator wannabe, and the Justice Department's politicization under Holder and their canceling a slamdunk case against New Black Panther members for civil rights infringements against voters in Pennsylvania and, holy hell the list does go on.

    Liberal media?

    by solvseus

    Anyone who thinks all the other networks are liberal must be so far to the right that everything is to the left of you. You must be the same mouth breathers who think Obama and the Dems are far left, liberal, communist, socialist, fascist, whatever-ist when they're actually moderate, corporate owned douches just like any politicians, just not as bad as puppet morons like Bush and Palin, or selfish, greedy pigs like Cheney and most of the don't have any ideas but to say no to everything and make up rhetoric bs GOP. While the wussy Dems roll over and compromise their principles in the name of "bi-partisanship", even when they're called names by the right anyway. All while the complicit and lazy media repeats both sides crap ad naseum (though the right has it down to an artform, something the left needs to learn when they're right and can't get the message out because they incorrectly think it'll sell itself) and pretends there are always 2 sides to the story even when the real sides are the factually correct and the crazy-ass bull-spittle made up to please their big donors and other mouth breathers who believe anyone who wears a Bible on their sleeves, even while schtupping their mistresses or gay lovers (often after criticizing someone else for doing the same). Corporate media isn't liberal, it's biased towards controversy and whatever gets ratings to sell ads. Fox sucks the worst though, anyone who isn't a partisan moron should know that.

    Such name calling...

    by BlindOgre

    Notice how the leftists resort so quickly to vulgar insults and name calling - a true sign of incredible wisdom. A fascist government forbids dissent. A socialist government tries to provide the same services for everyone. A communist government seeks to require service and participation from the citizens. The current administration is actively pursuing all three. Perhaps we need a new sociopolitical term: Obamanist or Pelosist or Idiocracy. :)

    by solvseus

    Cool name BTW. Someone did sue them, but Fox got off for some stupidass reason after hiding behind the 1st Amendment and literally admitting to be entertainment and "commentary". That's right, they actually won the right to lie. Google: "fox sues for right to lie". If that doesn't tell people something, I don't know what else would. But then, these people believe in Death Panels (yeah, the current system doesn't do that), that Obama is a Kenyan (despite all evidence to the contrary), that Bush was a great president, that Iraq had WMDs and had a hand in 9/11, have no idea what any of those -ists they yell out mean, and scream things like "get the gov's hand off my Medicare". Not exactly our best and brightest. Of course it's popular, where else can wingnuts be told what to think (besides talk radio).

    As for BlindOgre - "A fascist government forbids dissent" - you mean like people being arrested for wearing t-shirts at rallies or being pushed off to "protest areas" a mile away from the actual forum where a speaker is actually talking, which is only filled with that speaker's supporters? Wait, that was under Bush. When all you people who loved your country so much said those of us who spoke out against those in charge were terrorist loving, unAmerican traitors. Same services for everyone? If you mean the healthcare system, he STARTED with a tiered system and continues to compromise down. Banks aren't owned by the gov, we can't even regulate them without you crying socialist. Same with the automobile industry. Bush raised the deficit to over $10 trillion from $4 trillion (was $1 trillion before Reagan), took us into an expensive war that had nothing to do with anything while making the real war in the 'stans worse by pulling resources and half assing it, treating our soldiers like crap while anyone who complained about their treatment were told they didn't support the troops, had the fed hand over another trillion in bailouts that you're blaming Obama for (that had to happen or our entire system would have collapsed), bitch about corporates abusing the money but don't want regulation, but God forbid another trillion over 10 years that could actually save us money, not to mention save lives because our current system is falling apart to the point that it's like 15 9/11's a year. But you're a God-fearing patriot who loves his country and it's people because it's ok to call the president Hitler when he has a (D) after his name, and everyone who get screwed over by the current healthcare system and complains about it is a commie. Not that you understand what any of those words mean by your brilliant definitions. I'm sure you're just going to claim that I'm a far left liberal because anyone who thinks Glen Beck is a fucktard must be, couldn't possibly be that we're just tired of you morons ruining OUR COUNTRY TOO, which you seem to forget it is, but if you want to pretend it's only liberals resorting to name-calling, who's the one lacking the wisdom here?

    by BadMrWonka

    but no way that's true. what it is, is that a bunch of the more, ahem, "out there" talkbackers tend to post only when there is apolitical or ideological issue out there.<p> it's the same thing when there is discussion of conspiracy theories.<p>half the talkbackers are not extreme right wing crazies, they just come out of the woodwork when there is a post like this.<p> to me, Fox News is like professional wrestling. if you like it, accept that it's completel biased and crazy, but it's biased and crazy toward your political leanings, then so be it. but if you can HONESTLY say with a straight face that it's unbiased and accurate, well, you probably believe professional wrestling is real, too. you also might be at the next tea party rally with a placard of Obama with a Hitler Moustache.<p>the reason I've come to peace with a lot of the saddening and horrible mean spirited rhetoric from the right is that I'm comforted by the fact that society is evolving away from them. one day we can look back on these people the way we look back on those who supported segregation, opposed women's rights, etc. society is healing itself of the cancer of hatred, one ignorant fool at a time. Fox News is so insanely popular because of the older people who can't evolve. their kids watch Rachel Maddow and laugh at them.

    Libelous? Who cares?

    by cinemixtape.com

    Dangerous? I think not. Fox misused the word "miss." I think it can be fairly said that CNN and the other networks missed the point of the rally. Rick Sanchez equates explaining with promoting, which is just silly. CNN has just as obvious a slant as Fox News does, but since they agree with their own politics, it doesn't seem like bias to them. This is the nature of opinions. Would I be caught dead out there with those people at that rally? No way. But for everyone to overreact to this just because they hate Fox News in the first place... it's just silly, childish, and a waste of everyone's time.

    by jpryce

    Seriously. I'm not a Dem or a Rep, but what the fuck does this story have to do with anything cool or movie/tv/etc or geek related? Are you so lacking in posting actual on-topic and interesting content, that you resort to these meaningless political bullshit posts, just to jack up talkback reply numbers? Fucking honestly? It's bad enough Herc and overall AICN in general, is getting scooped left and right by PEREZ HILTON, of all people, and some of these other gossip blogs and movie/geek sites, and AICN comes in 6 to 24 hours later, posting the content. Seriously, I'd off myself if I'm getting scooped by those clowns day in and day out. You want to post political opinion and all that shit, then set up a site called AINT IT POLITICAL NEWS and post that shit on that site. Otherwise Herc, you and AICN should stop slacking off and get back to posting proper content. Shitballs, being a long time fan of this site, these days it's not even worth coming here when other sites are providing proper and in-depth movie/tv/etc, content.

    by MSJanke

    the commentary in the posted story *was* blatantly partisan, whether you want to acknowledge that or not. And I don't see AICN posting news stories about when other networks are caught in lies or mistakes (as some have pointed out above). Regardless, this is an ENTERTAINMENT site, is it not? Unless you want to start becoming news media watchdogs like Howard Kurtz's Reliable Sources on CNN, let's get back on topic with news about Lost or 24 or the Emmys, please. It's as ridiculous as going to a Star Wars site and seeing a front page article posted about the greatness of Ronald Reagan.

    FOX is winning the ratings war

    by hifidog

    That's all this is about. The other networks are tired of having their arse handed to them year after year. The bias on display from all sides is easy to recognize for anyone that is honest. Here, I'll help everyone update their scorecard. MSNBC is almost entirely far left (except Morning Joe), FOX is Mostly Far right (Shepherd Smith plays it fairly straight), CNN is generally left of center with some notable exceptions (I'm looking at you Lou Dobbs), the broadcast networks (NBC, CBS & ABC)tilt mostly to the left and feature very few conservative voices, but ABC seems to feature more straight shooters (John Stossel and Jake Tapper for example). I understand that some really get into this stuff as if they're following a favorite sports team, but getting up in arms over an ad for one tv network that pokes the competition is really stupid. Herc your "article" is laughable because it demonstrates obvious bias which over-estimates the importance of the topic, it doesn't fairly capture the context of the ad campaign and you attempt to enhance your point by including a completely unrelated reference to a casting rumor from a British paper. So, if we're getting into snits about the Megan Fox as Catwoman B.S., how many "lies" does AICN post per week? If Nolan doesn't film the next Bat-flick entirely using IMAX cameras is Harry a liar? I'd tend to say no, but your standard would suggest otherwise. I'd have more respect for your point of view if you didn't role around in the same mudhole you're decrying as dirty. So, please, climb down off the soapbox and get back to your Buffy videos.

    All MSM suck

    by solvseus

    Yeah, most corporate media lies, or at least gets things wrong. The problem with Fox is that they turned it into an art form. And worse, they have the balls to call themselves Fair And Balanced, saying things like We Report You Decide. Fox IS far right... not even leaning, FAR RIGHT... but that's not the main problem. Their "commentators" don't just editorialize, lying by leaving things out or not doing their research, or just repeating talking points. KO has done that and it bugs me, whether it's because he didn't know and should have checked or just wants to make a point. They all do that, and that's why they suck and why most of us now get our news elsewhere. No, Fox is worse because they get told what to push by the boss (proven, look it up), talking points that often have little or NO basis in reality, and they repeat them OVER and OVER again to the lowest common denominators until it's drilled in, and worse gets repeated elsewhere as fact (even by the so-called "liberal media"). So Grandma is out there worried her healthcare is going to get taken away as she's marched off to a death panel by Muslim, Kenyan born extremist communist socialist fascist liberals, but Bush saved us from Saddam committing another 9/11 with his WMDs, because Jesus loves corporations and hates teh gheys, and the other unAmerican, USA-hating, terrorist-loving 70% of the country who aren't the real Americans you are. <p></p> Even MSNBC has Scarborough, Buchannan, used to have Carlson, etc. CNN et al leaning liberal, see my earlier post (or Lou Dobbs). Worse, sometimes they go out of their way to NOT appear too liberal by treating fucktards like their opinions are just as valid as evidence based facts, and not pointing out that the fucktards are in fact fucktards. While you keep calling them "liberal" anyway as if it's a 4 letter word, the Dems don't fight back because they're pussies, also acting like you aren't a bunch of fucktards, and think they can get away with bs like this, while nitpicking over every other little problem with everyone else to the point where there are apologies and firings (though where are the people apologizing and getting fired when Fox screws things up or lies?). Then we're all the angry, crazy, racist, name callers, because you're not projecting much and never do anything like that. And obviously anyone who points this out must be a far left partisan who loves the rest of the MSM bitches and (D)ouchebags, and not just a logical, fact believing person who thinks you 20%ers are ruining MY COUNTRY!

    But he was PISSED!!!!!! Fox News simply wouldn't be allowed a broadcast license over here, where it's a requirement for TV news coverage to be balanced. Even Murdoch's own Sky News has to follow the rules and as a result is reasonably well thought off and a better news gathering organisation for it. I prefer to watch the BBC News myself because of its public service remit, also the fact its paid by for all the British public means that its run for all the British public. It's a British institution that we are rightly very proud of (Eastenders not withstanding), the other is the NHS.

I kept coming back because AICN, and this is the only point we will agree on...AICN was the top dog in the game before all the rest came along. Raw, honest, had all the great scoops, set reports, pictures, videos, content, etc, etc....but kept it entertainment based...and now there are these annoyingly random political news posts thrown in. I don't care about that gossip shit or Perez, and was referencing him and others solely on the fact that AICN is becoming late to game on posting proper entertainment content, and it's a sad day when you're getting scooped by gossip sites and others, etc. But I go where the entertainment, movie, etc, content is, and if that's one of the gossip sites, so be it. But even the big stories take forever to get posted here, while twice over they are already up on other sites. Meanwhile, we get topic posts like this. And as for why AICN shouldn't cover it....BECAUSE IT HAS NO PLACE HERE ON THIS SITE! It's unbelieveably fucking random. CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, AND FOX ALL LIE ABOUT SHIT ALL THE FUCKING TIME, does that mean it should be posted here...because if so this site would be filled to the hilt with news networks lying and fabricating stories. Create a politics and news based site and post this shit there. This "story" is a "political news" story that has no relation to anything entertainment or what this site was known for. It's nothing more than a bias post, because most of AICN staff is liberal. I have no problem with their views if they are liberal or conservative, even when it comes to political movies or entertainment related topics, but shit like this should be posted elsewhere.

There's a reason Fox News absolutely slams all the competition combined, there's a reason why Obamacare has failed to pass so miserably, people are starting to wake up and realize socialized medicine is not the answer. Listen to all those who have it in Canada and Britain, you hear nothing but complaints. More people need to get off their lazy asses, do well in school, and get a go job that offers great medical insurance at an affordable rate. I have no respect or sympathy for fat lazy people (aka most of AICN and its readership) who are looking for a handout. Get off your fat ass and do something. Just look at the state of our nation's public schools (did Herc watch season 4 of The Wire?) and see what government run anything will look like.

    by FrenchBastard03

    The reason why capitalism works and why those "heartless health insurance" companies will always be better than government run insurance is due to the fact that those private insurance companies ARE looking for customers, they compete for customers and want to profit. This means they go out of their way for customer satisfaction in order to keep said customers. The government doesn't give a damn about pleasing the people however, politicians are all about public appearance and making sure they win over enough voters to win the next election. Their all about the power, and once they pass a bill to "help" the people, they could care less about whether or not it works. They passed the bill, end of story. If things aren't working out, just raise taxes. On the other hand, businesses have to deal with the ups and downs of profits and the economy, they're going out of their way each and every day to make sure their customers are satisfied, and that's the beauty of capitalism and why this country was built on it and why we're the global power we are today, vs the weak Canada. In terms of Team America, we are the dick, while Canada and most of Europe are pussies.

    by mulberry

    Why do people complain about Fox bias whilst not complaining about those of other networks? Personal politics is part of of it. <p>But the main aspect is that not all biases are created equal. There are considerable degrees of bias.<p>Both I and the Iranian President Ahmadinejad are biased in our opinions. Does that make our opinions equally valid? <p>No. The difference is that he is way, way more biased than me on most things.<p> UK comedian Simon Munnery was talking about his parents who read the Daily Mail (basically Fox in print - scare stories about immigrants, tax, bureacracy, titillating stories about the indiscretions of the wealthy, trumped up miracle lifestyle cures for cancer, heart attacks and other diseases of the paranoid over-40s). He found he could not actually debate issues with them, because it was literally like having an argument with a digest of quotes from past issues of newspaper rather than a person who could actually react constructively to the discussion. Argument by assertion, bombast and attrition<p>Robin Ince has a good one about a Daily Express (Daily Mail's slow younger sibling) columnist,Melanie Phillips, who had a Press Complaints Commission complaint thrown own on the grounds that her readership understand that when she says "It is a fact that", she means "It is my opinion", even when talking about externally provable facts, such as "It is a fact there has been no real research into the effects of gay adoption".

    If something happens to Obama, Fox and all of their hosts, writers, and even Murdoch himself, should be held on trial for instigating the hatred amongst their viewers for Obama.

I imagine that Fox has a disaster plan already in place with bunkers and helicopter lifts for a "Kennedy event" which might mean that riots break out and people with a grudge exercising their right to bear assault rifles storm the Fox buildings looking for O'Reilly et al.

    Listen I hate Fox News as much as the next guy but seriously, are all you people really that dense? I'm fucking shocked at how willing you all are to digest the endless propaganda and lies coming from the "liberal" media now, they are NO BETTER THAN FOX. We're actually getting some honest journalism from Fox now with a Democrat pres, and CNN and the rest have become the Pentagon disinfo mouthpiece of choice. I'm in utter shock at the state of this country yet theres still MILLIONS of you mindless zombies completely unaware of what's happening. You just keep drinking the cool-aid served up by NBC and the gang. It's disgusting.

    The only thing more biased than Fox News

    by InActionMan

    is Canadian media. These bigoted bastards even have a quota system requiring that only Canadian produced art can be seen or heard on Canadian airwaves. <P> http://www.media-awareness.ca/english/issues/cultural_policies/canadian_content_rules.cfm <P> How would you like to spend the rest of your life listing to the radio when all you hear is "Rush", "Ann Murry", "Celine Dion" and the Canadian version of "Life is a Highway" on a continuous loop. And lets face it those Objectivist whack jobs in "Rush" haven't had a good album since "Moving Pictures". <P> And don't get me started on the CBC. It makes NPR look like the Howard Stern Show. More Canadian traffic accidents have been caused by people falling asleep driving while listening to the CBC than from drunk driving, texting or getting a blowjob while driving. <P> There you are watching the news and half way through the story everyone suddenly starts speaking French. FRENCH!!!! The most anti- American language in the world. <P> The Canadians stole the good side of Niagara Falls from America. The Canadian side has a beautiful park, hotels, casinos and restaurants. The American side looks like the bad part of Detroit with a fucking waterfall. SNEAKY SOCIALIST CANUCK BASTARDS!!!! <P> DON'T DO IT VADAKINX THEY WILL STEAL YOUR SOUL!

    by buffywrestling

    doesn't believe sweeping statements that they are portraying universal health care. I was injured and had to have home care for 3 months where a nurse came to change my bandage twice a day. My father has liver cancer and has been on chemo every two weeks for the past 3 & half years (they only gave him 1 to 3 years to live). It may not be a perfect system but it's hard to describe that type of comfort reliablility that equalizes all of us. <p> That probably sounded a bit socialist, didn't it? The whole "equalizing" thing? But we still have a peeking order; a classism, a rasism. Health care just isn't a big part of it.

    Spazatronik2000 Retraction

    by mulberry

    Sorry, dude. That was uncalled for. <p>There are a few big problems - Fox-style editorial lines which actively distort new and reporting to make it fit a corporate agenda is one. <p> The other big one is lazy journalism. With competition, 24 hour rolling new and lower ad revenues, there are fewer actual reporters (compared to presenters), reliance on a small number of news feeds, uncritial repetition of press releases, reporting speculation and opinion as fact.<p>And glitzing up for ratings chasing - saw a BBC one this morning reporting Obama's reply to a question about race bias in his opponents (his reply being a balanced "Probably some people oppose me due to my race, some vote for me purely on that basis, but most people base it on the issues"), basically reported as "Obama says opponents are racist".

Yes, it has it's bad areas. People with stuffy noises going to the ER, etc. Our corporate run health care system makes it's profit off of DENYING your claims. They don't need to find customers....customers come to them to get even the crappiest of insurance. Oh, by the way, I work my ass off day after day, have a college degree, my wife is working on here Ph'D in Marine Science, and yet I still hate corporate run insurance. I'm sorry, but we are not fat and lazy. I'm actually 5'10 150 pounds and I kayak, hike,and travel constantly, thank you very much. My wife was injured on the job two years ago. We come to find out nothing was going to be covered. Why, they lied, even went as far as filling out paper work contrary to what the doctor said, denied required treatments, and meds. We took them to court, but they had the time and money on their side. They then gave us 10% of what they LEGALLY owed us, but we are still $15,000 in debt because of these corporate assholes.

    The Media

    by Wrath4771

    The Media has always tilted towards the Left. Those who think the media is "fair and balanced" believe that because their own ideological beliefs also tilt towards the left - and I'm not saying that's a bad thing, just the way it is. FOX News for all of it's sins realized that there wasn't a channel or news program that was aimed at those on the right. I think most moderate conservatives realize how far right FOX news is, but frankly there are days I'd rather hear their schpeel than be bombarded with stories on how Michelle Obama keeps her arms fit and about date night. And if the worst thing FOX did this week was report Megan Fox as Catwoman I'll take that over the idiot's who reported that Obama was now the torch bearer for Camelot.

    Coverage of rallies in general

    by kafka07

    In recent years there have been a lot of these different rallies. While Bush was president there were a lot of anti-war rallies, some with only several hundred people or a few thousand. But other times, particularly in DC, the numbers would be as high as 300,000 or even more. I attended a D.C. anti-war rally that had nearly half a million people. Well known public figures spoke at it, including Sean Penn, Jane Fonda and Tim Robbins. What was the coverage in the media? Almost zilch. A little blurb, and it might as well have been no coverage at all. The coverage that these tea-baggers are getting, despite their small attendance numbers (no offense but 70,000 isn't really that much for a DC march), is far greater coverage than any other type of march or rally has ever received in the last decade or so. Media outlets will only cover the things that their billionaire sponsors (pharma, insurance, etc) instruct them to.

    Here's an example that combines Health Care & FOX News

    by RenoNevada2000

    Everyone remembers the Terry Schiavo flap from a few years ago, right? Some woman in Florida was in a coma for years, doctors said she was braindead and her brain had atrophied down and there was no chance in hell of her ever coming out of it so her family decided to pull the plug.<br></br><br></br> Except... <br></br> A bunch of pro-lifers found out and started staging protests and making a big fuss about it. Soon, all of Congress was called back from a break to vote on a bill that would keep this vegetable alive. One senator, who was a doctor before he took up politics, watched a video tape edited together from hours of footage, and made the miraculous diagnosis that Terry was actually aware of her surroundings and not brain dead after all. From watching a video tape!<br></br> AndFOX News was there, covering the story. Well, covering the pro-lifer's side of the story. In every news segment and on every one of their commentators' shows, they hammered away that Schiavo could come out of this coma, that she was really aware of what was going on around her, etc., etc. <br></br> Well, while all this was going on, Terry Schiavo's body finally expired on its own. An autopsy was performed and a few weeks later, a press conference was called to announce the results. All the news networks aired the press conference live- CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and yes, even FOX. But the moment that the doctors began to explain that the original diagnosis was correct and Schiavo's brain had atrophied and she was NEVER going to come out of that coma, FOX cut away from the press conference to an event where Bush was giving some generic, boilerplate speech to some midwestern factory workers.<br></br> So, when facts were being presented that FOX News was wrong, had made a mistake and backed the wrong horse in the debate, they chose not to man-up and admit their mistake, they chose to hide it from their audience. Other news organizations would issue what is called a retraction for erroneous reportage and their commentators could have gone on the air and expressed regret that she died and that they were possibly wrong. But FOX did none of thyis. They were already on to the next fake outrage designed to pander to the far Right Wing of the country. <br></br> If you can't see how this showcases FOX's dubious tactics as an alleged news gathering organization, then I don't think much of your critical reasoning skills.

When it comes to International news, its CNN all the way. Just give it a rest all ready, I know Beck and Hannity tow the party line, thats fine, I dont watch them, but so does Olbermann and Maddow. I dont hear the outrage about them. And for anyone who thinks O'Reilly is a right wing nut, watch last nights talking points. AND PLEASE for the love of god or Buddha or Allah STOP wit the "all the people that watch FOX are retards" nonsense.

    by Lou C.

    I have no great affinity for Rick Sanchez or CNN, or any of the news channels for that matter. But the one thing that disturbs me about Fox is that they so often make mistakes because they don't bother checking things out. They don't care. They're the George Bush of journalism. They have a point of view they want to present, and they're going to do it, no matter what the facts say. That extends to their opinion shows AND their newscasts. Mind you, I don't care all that much because they're watched by a few million people who are mostly of like-mind politically and probably aren't going to listen to another point of view anyway. So, really, in the end, who gives a shit? I can watch The Daily Show in peace and people who once thought GW Bush was a good president can watch Fox News in peace. If Fox got 50 million viewers, I'd be a lot more concerned ...

    Your Perspective Is Skewed

    by rwolfe7

    Further pontifications from a news junkie who loves AICN (but not it's bias when it comes to politics--which it has every right to have) . . . Everyone has a perspective. Reality is perception in a very real way, though that is not to say there isn't a concrete reality one must eventually reconcile perception with. Buses still hit people who step in front of them and never saw or heard them coming. The entirety of "mainstream" news outlets live inside a box of liberalism they have been ensconced within by their liberal educations and perhaps family backgrounds in some cases--but hopefully because they actually believe in it in their hearts and not because they have been steered or brainwashed into this view. In some cases, they believe everyone lives in that same box and don't realize this is not a universal worldview. In fact, it seems like in most cases. Fox News does have a bias that shows through at times. I was perplexed at their coverage and treatment of Ron Paul, for example. But that can be reconciled with a bent toward Republican Party leadership views. Why else keep putting Karl Rove on television--his face is for radio and his viewpoint is predictable! On hard news stories, however, Fox News delivers. I had no prior experience with Fox News prior to 9/11. They beat all other networks that day and for weeks and weeks 99% if the time with updates and breaking news (I had three TV's constantly on, switching between all networks and cable news for months--it was a sicknesss). I was won over. Recently, the presidential election coverage was overwhelmingly biased in favor of Obama in every other outlet, but was fairly balanced on Fox as far as number of stories, which "side" sources and guests were drawn from, etc. This was documented and several other news outlets, admitted it was so; some all but apologized. Fox News, where bias shows through, is more Republican Party-biased, but not so hard as the other news outlets are leaning left. Fox's bias shows through at times. This is not a reference to their penchent for airing only center and right-wing commentary; there, the bias is obvious. There is no Keith Olbermann coming on after Hannity on Fox News. The other news outlets are unashamedly biased for the left, perhaps the Democratic Party itself. It's all Keith's ilk on their commentary shows. You can tell if you live in the same box they do if you think Chris Matthews is unbiased or a news journalist; he's just not, and he's biased hard left, hard pro-Obama. Same could be said on the other side for Hannity. Beck is fairly Libertarian and has been abusing the Rebublican Party as much as the Democrats for years now--but he ain't center and he is opposed to the left-wing worldview to be sure. Not saying you can't watch and enjoy, just be real with yourself. Watch a little of all sides if you can stand to! Anyway, you have to pick your news outlet and deal with it; I say watch them all at least a little bit. EVERYTHING comes down to world view. The only thing you have to do is come to terms with that, recognize it where it is unsuccessfully being stifled, and put it in it's place in your perception of reality. There is no unbiased version of events. There is a concrete truth. You just will have to dig for it and be honest with yourself, because it might not be what you wanted it to be. If you stop digging for it because you found a stimulus that matches your hopes, you might end up squashed by a bus one day . . .

    certainly some coverage

    by Himbo

    I scanned the stations during football breaks on 9/12. Fox covered the rally continuously. CNN covered intermittently, with the only lengthy report I saw after the rally broke for the day, but covered President's health-care town hall completely. MSNBC covered Presidents townhall and then some, but not at all the 9/12 rally. <p> Compare this with CNNs constant house-long newsfeed of the smaller crowd that was protesting the G8 summit in London a few months back. So yes, indignant CNN guy can say they covered the 9/12, but their coverage was in NO WAY commensurate with the attendance. They've given more coverage to La Raza rallys. <p> MSNBC doesn't consider 500K people news if their opinions do not dovetail.

    All the news is biased!

    by Reaver Chow

    I don't watch Fox, in fact I prefer reading news to watching it, when I watch news on TV it is usually CNN. However I am grateful that we have a free market media system that allows a outlet like Fox to bring stories, like this ACORN mess, to the forefront when other outlets ignored it. Media "scooping" each other is part of a healthy, competitive free system. A couple of bits of advice for the supposedly open minded liberals who constantly attack Fox and it's viewers: 1) All Media is biased, most towards the left. If you can't be honest about that fact, then you are an idiot. On the plus side being an idiot means you have a good shot of being a Massachusetts congressperson. 2) Calling Fox viewers inbred, Oh there is a mature and cogent point... So now we call people names, that'll show 'em, it worked in 1st grade. I love the assumption that if someone thinks differently than you, that they are automatically defective. So much for vaunted liberal open mindedness. 3) If you hate it, don't watch it, don't talk about, go on with your lives. Liberals are fond of mocking conservatives for saying "liberal media" now do the same exact thing and think it is smart. One question for all you allegedly smart, correct-thinking, liberals; given the option, would you shut down Fox and other opposition media?

    by richievanderlow

    But Fox has a point that the 'mainstream' guys have not covered stuff adequately. CBS gets 30 minutes to cover the news on a nightly basis. They spent 26 minutes of Couric's 30 minute evening news program covering Michael Jackson the day after he died, as cap and trade was getting voted on. When all you have is 30 minutes how is MJ worthy of that much time? Is there really nothing else to report on in the world? News networks these days are a joke. Fox isn't wrong, not that they're getting it right though. The news is not our watchdog anymore... and they wonder why they're losing their audience.

    FOX's point

    by Spastic Jedi

    The point of the Ad, is that FOX covered the "story" that there were thousands of people fed up with taxes and spending that protested Washington. <br> The other networks instead tried to "frame" the story as a hate rally focusing on the fringe rather than the real message. That's something they never did with the left and the anti-war protesters. <br> Regardless if you hate these people because you are such party loyalists, this wasn't a group of 500,000 racists as MSNBC claims. <br> FOX covered the story, the MSM created the meme. There is a huge difference.

    by rbatty024

    about the economy and took the necessary steps to remedy the situation does not mean I agree with him one hundred percent. While the stimulus plan was a necessity (as most high schoolers can explain to you), his continuation of the Bush bank bailout was a terrible idea. He should have, at the very least, received specific concessions from the banks regarding lending and business practices. Again, things are not black or white. There is nuance to most things. <p> By the way, I hope most people here complaining about Obama's spending was also complaining about the extraordinary deficits of Bush and Reagan. The thing that gets me is, where were these conservative protesters when Bush's wars were costing us trillions.

    If you had been watching ABC, CBS, or NBC, you would have known next to nothing about this event prior to it happening. You also would have seen anchors from CNN and MSNBC calling the participants ballsuckers, I'm sorry, I think they said "teabaggers", which is the same thing as "ballsuckers". You also saw ZERO coverage of the ACORN employees giving tax advice to pimps and hookers. It's really funny the "outrage" you see from the racist killer, Rick Sanchez. Before the million-man march or just about any liberal anti-war march you'd see weeks of coverage beforehand. There were reporters camped out with Cindee Sheehan for weeks. They also didn't denigrate the protestors like these protestors were. There was the CNN reporter back in April who got into an argument with a Tea Party protestor, shouting Obama talking points at him. To try and say they gave these people the respect and airtime they gave all of the anti-Bush protests is laughable. The fact of the matter is, about a million people marched on Washington, it's been planned for weeks, and if you watched CNN, CBS, or ABC you wouldn't have known about it till after it happened. Who the fuck watches news on a Saturday? Most people who weren't there didn't know about the march until Saturday WHILE it was going on or Sunday morning. You'd think they'd say something before it happened, but none of the networks reported on it. They had to report on it when it was actually going on...<p> As far as that Megan Fox so called "lie", that's about the dumbest point ever made on this site. This site posts casting rumors and script rumors that turn out to be false all the time. Was it a lie every time that this site put up something that turned out to be false? Oh, it wasn't a lie when they posted something that they thought was true but turned out not to be? Then how was it a lie when another media outlet posted casting news that turned out to be false?

And for all those talking about Obama's lies, all of his alleged lies combined wouldn't change the fact that when the last guy was in charge lied, we often invaded another fucking country. I don't think Obama's lies have the consequence of thousands of dead Americans.

Republicans have always been known for keeping government small, which in itself can be a very good thing but also for taking rights away from people in the process. Trying to get universal health care for everyone isn't taking away rights for anyone, it's giving people an opportunity. There's a difference.

    Going back to Franklin D. Roosevelt, look at how it's fallen to the Democratic Party time and again to stand up for the middle-class, while the Republicans fight it every step of the way, every goddamn time. Social Security? Created by a Democratic President and a Democratic Congress. Republicans fought it tooth and nail, even in the 1930's calling it socialist. Medicare and Medicaid? Same exact thing. The Civil Rights Movement? Driven through by Kennedy and LBJ, and fought all the way by racist fucking Republicans. Deny it, assholes. Try to refute it.

    Yes, snarky gets snarky in return hence my rebuttal to your orignal post. <br> <br> Look at government health care like the sub-prime mortage crisis. Banks were giving out loans (forced by government) to people who we basically knew that couldn't ever pay them back. What happened? The banks failed because more money was exiting the system than what was being brought in by responsible paying people. <br> <br> You can't feed all your freinds at a pot luck dinner if you're the only person bringing a dish. <br> <br> Same basic concept plagues Obamacare, Social Security, Medacaid, Medicare and any Government program that deal with giving handout sto those taht don't contribute. The tax payer can only sustain the system for so long before it collapses under the weight of it all.

Couldn't have been around the time that Bush I promised "read my lips, no new taxes," was convinced by a Democrat congress to raise taxes to balance the budget, and then was campaigned against BY DEMOCRATS for RAISING TAXES!!! (Talk about your fucking pot calling the kettle!)<p>When did we become so polarized? Well, it obviously couldn't have been in the mid-90s when Clinton and the Repukelican congress got into a heated budget battle and Repukes wanted to limit the rate of budget increase in Soc Sec/Medicare/Medicaid to the rate of inflation plus the beneficiaries and this was painted as a "cut" (since it would go from 10% growth to 6% growth, this was a cut?!?!?) by Dems and the media and Repukes were railed against as wanting to kick grandmas out of nursing homes, deny her medicine, and make her eat dog food out of a can to survive.

Again, conservatives cried out "Socialists! Communists!" only to have common sense and WHAT'S RIGHT TO DO BY OUR FELLOW MEN AND WOMEN prevail. How about the Civil Rights Movement and your distinguished Republican party taking a stand AGAINST equal rights for blacks in this country, just like your party stands against equal rights for homosexuals now?

    Fox doesn't really pretend to be unbiased.

    by cinemixtape.com

    They make it pretty clear their anchors are right-leaning. Sure, they claim the whole "fair and balanced" thing. But this is a reference to the fact that they generally have people from both sides of the political spectrum on EVERY SINGLE SHOW. When was the last time you saw Olbermann interviewing anyone but a far-left mouthpiece? He doesn't. He just shouts at them from afar. At least O'Reilly goes toe to toe with the people he disagrees with. That's the difference here. MSNBC and (to a lesser extent) CNN make little or no attempt at presenting all sides of a given story. That's why they "missed" this particular story. Rachel Maddow has never, as far as I know, interviewed anyone but die-hard liberals. How is that journalism? At least Fox is willing to get their hands dirty and do some heavy-lifting. Hell, they employed Alan Colmes for over a decade. Some may claim he's "weak," but he's just as much of a blowhard as Howard Dean or Dennis Kucinich or Michelle Obama.

    Defend my party's record

    by The Bicycle Sharer

    Well, they're only moderately my party (I tend a little more libertarian, a little more Ayn Rand-ian), but here goes a small retort to your socialist stuff.<p> Stating that Repukes opposed Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid as socialist and then saying that those programs prevailed because of "common sense" and "WHAT'S RIGHT TO DO BY OUR FELLOW MEN AND WOMEN" in NO WAY contradicts that they're socialist. They are, in fact, SOCIALIST. You understand what a logical argument is, right? You haven't made one. You've made a very good argument that you think socialism is "common sense" and "WHAT'S RIGHT TO DO BY OUR FELLOW MEN AND WOMEN," but you've made absolutely no argument that those programs aren't socialist.<p>Let me help you out:<p>From wiki ('cause I'm lazy like that): "Socialism refers to various theories of economic organi[z]ation advocating public or direct worker ownership and administration of the means of production and allocation of resources, and a society characterised by equal access to resources for all individuals with an egalitarian method of compensation." Even you should be able to understand that. Now, in the US, Social Security (OASDI) is a SOCIAL insurance program funded by taxes and administered by the federal government. Hmmmm? Sure sounds like "public ownership and allocation of resources" to me. That makes it SOCIALIST.<p>Now, I could go on through Medicare and Medicaid (since they, too, are "public ownership and allocation of resources"), but you should get the picture. Just because a [factual] argument was made against these programs as being socialist and they now exist, doesn't mean that they weren't, in fact, socialist. [They are and were.] It just means that political expediency and socialism triumphed over an aversion to socialistic programs.<p>By your "logic," no socialistic thing would ever exist that is claimed to be socialist since, by virtue of the fact that it exists, the argument that it was socialist must not have been true.

    Socialism has saved America

    by shutupfanboy

    The country was registered 35% Communist during the depression. FDR put in Socialist ideas and helped prevent the country from going Communist. Why, because Socialist ideas work. Captialism works, because you have to counter balance it with something out. We also had Socialist ideas with paying for a standing army since day one and giving out pensions for those who served as well as programs set-up to help new business in America and the poor. Saying Socialist is anti-American is just stupid, its been here since day one. Socialism is another code word like liberal where the truth of the word is destroyed to fit the agenda of others.

    by The Bicycle Sharer

    I don't care for murder either... but it's not up to me. It's up to the murderer who is dealing with the victim. If a woman gets raped, or she simply can't afford something, then she should murder the rapist or kill to get it. The whole murder is wrong thing isn't valid, because shit happens and, as a result, some people get murdered. The world is already ridiculously overpopulated. We humans think every life is important, but we'll just as easily have an abortion or commit genocide (hey, Matt, I think you oughta look that word up) on an entire colony of ants without a single pang of regret. As a species, we're hypocrites. We should extend abortion theory into the realm of everyday human interaction thereby depopulating the planet (and saving ant colonies?!?!?!).<p>(Do I get to vote on who we start this theory out on, Matt?

    Oh, my mistake, you were talking about the 1964 Civil Rights Act. <br> <br> See, many many years ago, in a galaxy far far away, there was the FIRST Civil Rights Act which was enacted by Republicans. This all took place before your selective memory of history. <br> <br> Now, not to be bothered by facts, in 1957, almost eight decades after Democrats voted against the 14th, Eisenhower passed the Civil Rights Act of 1957 after how many terms of democrat rule? Shheesh, FDR had more than one, I know that much. <br> That's all before 1964. Which by teh way, the Civil Righst Act of 1964 was voted into law with a higher percentage of Republicans than democrats... <br> <br> "The Republican Party was not so badly split as the Democrats by the civil rights issue. Only one Republican senator participated in the filibuster against the bill. In fact, since 1933, Republicans had a more positive record on civil rights than the Democrats. In the twenty-six major civil rights votes since 1933, a majority of Democrats opposed civil rights legislation in over 80 % of the votes. By contrast, the Republican majority favored civil rights in over 96 % of the votes." <br> From Congress Link... <br> http://tiny.cc/j589m

    Libtards make me laugh struggling to defend thier positions.

    by Libtards

    The gist if the ad was correct. Just because the Tea-Party march was mentioned doesn't mean it was covered, or covered accurtely. Often it was downplyed by the anchors, misleading about the number of attendees, and derided as "those wacky tea-baggers". Thier coverage wasn't about the march but about finding the worst element to exploit. Instead of asking someone "Why are you here?" they ask things like "Aren't you afraid of the potential violence this march can incite?" (For you libtards reading this that means the question inferred that the march was or will become a violent one) Try watching all of the news. ABC, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, NBC, C-Span, CBS, and whatever else you can find and....then decide where you might stand. Know the difference between news and comment shows, most libtards think comment shows are news. Anyone who gets thier news from Comedy Central, no matter thier justification, should be expelled from this argument, silly libtards.

    What's wrong with socialism?

    by The Bicycle Sharer

    Well, plenty, but aside from a personal preference it's non-US Constitutional and, in fact, was warned against by de Toqueville when he said of America: "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money." In addition to whatever else may be said of socialism, in this country it is, most assuredly Congress bribing the public with the public's money.<p>But just to be sure that we're not leaving too much out, let me add that socialism:<p>1) Removes the right of ownership from private to public, property rights, in other words. As Ayn Rand noted, "the right to property is the right of use and disposal. [S]ocialism negates private property rights altogether, and advocates the 'vesting of ownership and control' in the community as a whole, i.e., in the state."<p>2) Socialism is government interference in the marketplace, which vastly increases inefficiencies.<p>3) Socialism is supported by onerous taxes. (Show me the social democracy WITHOUT high taxes.).<p>4) Socialism limits choice (from many providers to one provider).<p>5) Socialism changes the role of government from a protector of rights to a provider of services.<p>6) Socialism values the state over the individual (giving rise to a whole lotta tragedies over the years and any number of justification for atrocities).<p>That's just a few things that I perceive as "wrong" with socialism. I could go on, but I'm hungry. You guys have fun. Back later.

AND "THE LAW," UNTIL 1973, ONCE HELD THAT ABORTION WAS MURDER?!!?!?!<p>So, what "the law" does and doesn't hold is no argument since civil laws are changeable.<p>I'm simply applying your arguments for abortion non-hypocritically to insect killing, overpopulating humans in the hopes that we can achieve some semblance of consistency, stop the genocide, and control the population, all of which were YOUR arguments for abortion. ;)

    Fear-mongering?

    by NeoMyers

    I am sick of hearing about how republicans and conservatives are fear-mongers. Global Warming anybody? Talk about fear mongering of the century! Don't use gas or oil or fart or look the wrong way because the world is going to melt. At least with "fear-mongering" about terrorism, there ACTUALLY is a mob of pissy, cave-dwelling terrorist douchebags that want to kill Americans and other westerners. But let's not stop at the biggest example of liberal fear-mongering. "Rich people are coming to take your money away!" Or "Don't work or try to succeed, the democrats will take care of you. The republicans are just evil white men." The fact is, liberals are some of the biggest racists around. Black people aren't good enough to get into college by themselves, let's make special slots for them which effectively calls every post-collegiate achievement into question. Did he or she really do well or was it a quota system? Who knows? And even as we speak, people are rallying against excessive government spending and are being criticized about it for being racist. What? Talk about division and fear-mongering. Maybe people just don't want their grand-children's children paying off our debts. How does Obama's race come into this at all? Oh, yeah, because liberals, instead of debating the merits of their position on the role of government in spending and health care, threw it out there that the only reason there is opposition to these policies is because Obama is black. Yep. You guys are right. Clearly, the conservatives are the divisive, fear-mongerers. Geez, turn off Chris Mathews and Keith Olbermann and fucking think for once in your goddamnned lives.

General Motors requested the loan inline with agreements they would shed 47,000 jobs, close five plants and axe 12 car models. Chrysler agreed to cut 3,000 jobs, cut one shift from production and axe three car models.[86] General Motors is also looking to sell its Swedish subsidiary, Saab, however has made no mention of plans for its German subsidiary, Opel or it's British subsidiary, Vauxhall. [edit] Obama Address to Joint Session of Congress In his joint address to Congress in 2009, Obama stated that "We will invest fifteen billion dollars in technologies like...more efficient cars and trucks built right here in America. As for auto industry, everyone recognizes that years of bad decision-making and global recession have pushed our automakers to the brink. We should not, and will not, protect them from their own bad practices. But we are committed to the goal of a re-tooled, re-imagined auto industry that can compete and win. Millions of jobs depend on it. Scores of communities depend on it. And I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk from it" [87] bro I know Bush approved the first one...but stop claiming Obama is some innocent dove in all this...he's made mistakes too

Typically, Fox is weeks ahead with the stories. Acorn, Van Jones, SEIU, Tea Party protests, town hall meeting disputes, Pelosi, Reid, Obama, you name it. The list goes on and on. See for yourself. There is a reason Fox news is #1 in the ratings people. Stop spouting the sheeple shit like, "Faux News" and they lie. All news organizations "spin" stories to meet their agendas. Or omit the stories all together. (abc,cbs, nbc, cnn) Watch the news, then check the facts for yourself. Why is Fox news important?

    by FeralAngel

    I mean come on. Fox is extremely successful, and yeah, some people just can't deal with it, so you - apparently being one of those people - focus on this brain-dead story. Were you aware that when Charles Gibson was asked about the Acorn scandal, he professed to know nothing about it? He calls himself a newsman? He's a freaking ABC News anchor! Come on, it's a fact that Fox has been watching ACORN much more closely than the other networks, and thanks to its attention, others were inspired to try to expose ACORN for the scuzz outfit it's become. And they succeeded. The irony is that two KIDS did it! I got a better tag line than "You lie", borrowed from Jon Stewart who directed it at the mainstream media: WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU????

    These people have NO IDEA what a czar is or how they function. They watch Fox News and based on what they hear, they think that a czar is some communist holdover from Russia (despite the fact that czars were PRE-communism). Those people couldn't answer any questions about what a czar does. They just think its wrong bc it has Russian connotations. <p> Then when they're told that Reagan created teh first czar, and that Bush appointed even more czars, they are DUMBFOUNDED. But instead of backing off, they still push forward, headstrong and ignorant. "Well who are they advising, that's what we don't like. These guys are advising the President?!?" Like a President has never had advisors before. You could ask these people what ANY number of politicians in DC do and they wouldn't have an answer for you. <p> But they focus on the czars as being some indication of Obama being a bad president or communist or socialist or fascist (bc they're ALL interchangeable apparently), bc they don't know anything. They hear a Russian word and assume its just par for the course for Obama. Bc he hates America, duh.

They have been trying to say it is race based. It isn't. They have been trying to say it is based on cook nuts. It is not. It is based on people getting sick of this government spending us into so much debt we will never recover. We are dealing with the Federal Reserve taking money from a bill that was supposed to pay for failed mortgages, but instead was used to buy up banks without our approval. From CNBC- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAtO8gT2eEs It is also based on a government that makes a big deal about waterboarding when we are dealing with these psychos who burn people alive.

    Liberals = Nazi Facism

    by GeorgieBoy

    NAZI = "National Socialist Workers Party." Which party leans more towards socialism? Liberals of course.<br><br> NAZIs also believed in eugenics much like the liberal group Planned Parenthood which was founded by a eugenics advocate. So, it's okay to kill people if they are economically worthless to society? Get ready for government run health care which tells you if that cancer treatment is cost effective or not!<br><br> Let's not forget the liberals version of the holocaust. 50 million aborted babies since 1973. The NAZIs only killed 12 million Jews.<br><br> How about gun control? NAZIs believe that only the government should have guns. Gee, sounds like the liberals who want to take guns away from people so they're unable to fight back when the gov't tries to take over.<br><br> And it's all done with lies. Lies that your streets will be "safer." That you'll have "more jobs." That you have "freedom to choose." When all it really is is MORE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE and a DISTANCING OF THE CONSTITUTION which brought America to be the greatest and most benevolent nation of earth.<br><br> So, it's pretty clear which party is like the NAZIs. I've given some thoughts to chew on. Stop allowing yourself to be brainwashed by liberal lies and be responsible for once in your life. <b>Look this stuff up and see for yourself!</b>

    You might surmise that because fewer Democrats will talk to Fox.

You probably don't know the name of the idiot who spearheaded the push for the lamebrain revisionist history which you're badly parroting here, but it is Jonah Goldman. He is a conservative hack author with the intellectual capacity of a three day old mayfly. Fascism aims to create a mythologized state (US is number one in EVERYTHING), promotes crony capitalism in which business and government form partnerships where it is almost impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins (Blackwater, Halliburton, ad nauseum) and gives overwhelming power to the government to police individual liberties through the creation of external and internal enemies. I could go on and on with this, but I've debunked dummies like you so many times on so many actual political sites that you just make me tired. This isn't even about our current left/right issues. It's just about learning, and not being willfully ignorant. If you want to insult the left call them Communists. Isn't that enough? At least you'd be going in the right direction.

    go anywhere else in the world

    by jiblets

    and you will find media outlets that are unapologetically biased to the left or to the right. In the US though, every form of mainstream media for the last 60 years has been staffed by left-leaning journalism school and Liberal Arts majors. Go into any major paper or news gathering organization, and they will be at least 90% democrats. These same democrats will try to tell you that they are NOT biased in their reporting of the news, that they just tell it how it is, unvarnished. Ridiculous. There is no way a human being can be neutral on a subject they actually care about. They will color their descriptions and use of language at the very least, and even weight the reporting with facts they favor while leaving out information they deem irrelevant. It's just human nature. Let's drop the idea that news media needs to be unbiased, and just have everyone declare their loyalties outright. Before there was FOX, anyone who had conservative beliefs or leanings had to watch and read media that was slanted against *them* 100% of the time and just swallow it. Suddenly there is ONE televised news outlet that they can watch without getting ulcers, and the leftists are attacking it in unrelenting waves of contempt and naked hatred, despite the fact that it is hugely successful and far more popular than anything that is presented as being overtly Liberal. It should tell you something about the overall makeup of the United States. This is a fundamentally Center-Right nation, and always has been, springing from the Puritan colonists. If you happen not to hold that philosophy, you might do yourself a favor and try to convince the ones you are in disagreement with in a less confrontational way, rather than declaring them hypnotized sheep and morons. You aren't winning any converts by staging street-theater puppet shows, rock throwing riots, posting contemptuous political cartoons, or stacking the editorial pages of the papers with hate-filled screeds. It's not helping that when a conservative speaker is scheduled to speak at a university, they are shouted down and drowned out, and even threatened with violence. This isn't the behavior of people who actually want free speech, it's the behavior of people who don't tolerate dissent.

Show me the instance when CNN, MSNBC or any of the networks put up a poll during the Bush administration asking what form of revolution their viewers thought was most likely under the current administration as Beck did. Show me a clip of one of their correspondents working up a crowd of protesters and coaching them as to what they should shout, like the clip circulating currently of the Fox correspondent at the Washington protest.

    Logic doesn't matter when you're scared shitless of a gay-liberal-Democrat-suicide-bomber. Republicans = fat guts and wallets, low IQ's, and no hearts.

And, I'm sure this has already been said, Conservatives are anti-abortion but pro-death penalty, while Liberals are pro-choice and anti-death penalty. I myself am pro-choice, within the first 3 months of pregnancy, with no 3rd trimester abortions whatsoever, (hey, if you didn't know you didn't want to keep it by then, well, tough, it's too late!) and pro-death penalty with the exception of juveniles, crazy-people and retards.

It's happening to your fellow Americans, and it is being done at the worst moments in their lives, when they have just been confronted with a life changing or life threatening health issue. And picking your own healthcare plan? How sweet of you to bring that up, because current laws allow for virtual monopolies by insurance companies in over twenty states and bar Americans from getting policies in a host of different ways.

    ...are the ones who say "I don't come here for politics, I come here for movie news!" as if they would have said the same thing if the opinion voiced was closer to their own views. My absolute faves, however, are the ones who not only shout out their indignation, but also threaten (THREATEN!) to never come back if this horrible behavior continues. As if everyone is suddenly going to say "No! No, please stay, wingnut tool! We promise we won't talk bad politics again!" <p> Gimme a break. <p> Seriously, if you disagree with the politics, either engage in a debate or shut the fuck up. This puffed up, Hannity-esque indignant posturing is making you look like complete assholes and worthy of nothing but gales of derisive laughter and insults involving various bodily emissions and livestock.

    LOL @ an Alinskyite like Obama claiming post-partisanship...

    by Darth_Inedible

    ALINKSY RULE # 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Obama comes directly from the Alinsky school of Community Organizing in Chicago. Hillary did her senior thesis on shitbag Alinksy. Whatever these people say in public you have to assume that they believe the opposite. If they claim "post partisanship" you can bet that they're going to be the most venomous, cynical partisans you've ever seen in office.

    Herc is the TELEVISION editor. Yes, this is an entertainment website, kudos for picking up on that, but Herc is the TV editor and the majority of hist stories relate to television. Fox News is on television. CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC- yep you're right, all on television. Now one network has accused the others of not doing their jobs, a lie as the other networks have all proved that they covered the story. So this is big news, politically related yes, but big news nontheless in the realm of television journalism.

    the funniest thing about the Dem vs Repub mindset

    by smackfu

    from the standpoint of a Canadian who spent a lifetime exposed to your batshit news media, is that the Republicans assume that it's just partisan politics. They don't seem to realize that the 'liberal bias' doesn't exist. It's not just democrats vs republicans, the rest of the WHOLE FUCKING WORLD thinks the US Republican party is absolutely demented. There is no liberal vs Republican. It's normal vs crazy, misguided and backwater stupid. It's the overwhelming majority of the planet with reasonable viewpoints on subjects, and then there is the Republicans, who inexplicably seem to argue the contrary of whatever everyone else (who isn't in their party) says out of simple spite.

    Rick Sanchez Misses The Point

    by ThusSpakeSpymunk

    In the new world of Truly Dumb America, you have to understand, Rick, that facts are meaningless! Nobody cares what's TRUE or not. Really - they don't. Go out and talk to people. They don't CARE what's true. You can present 800 facts to show how something isn't true, and it won't matter. What you will hear back in response to those 800 facts is, "Well, all I know is ..." and then the things that the peron WANTS to believe. That's all that matters. People in America WANT to believe in the kind of hateful, nasty dogma that Fox News puts out. What you fail to see is that THAT WORLD - the world of FOX NEWS - is the reality for the Teabaggers (yes, that's on purpose). FACTS are irrelevant. I actually, honestly expect that you will be seeing in the next 5-10 years, a dramatic shift in the understanding of American history, even, to the point where the South won the war, etc. Because it's what PEOPLE WANT TO BE TRUE. You're already SEEING "South Won" material creeping in even now because White America is hateful and vicious. You're seeing subtly, now, with talk of how Abe Lincoln was a viciosu racist and how General Lee was kind to black people. You're seeing it in talk of how the south got massive economic prosperity after the war ended and the area was rebuilt. Make up ANY fact, ANY - and then act as though it's all true no matter WHAT people say. That's why I love it when you hear Republican politicians talk about how they will "never" back down from an issue. This means that they are categorically saying that EVEN IF THEY DISCOVER THEY'RE WRONG OR THE FACTS PROVE THEY'RE WRONG - THEY WON'T BACK DOWN ANYWAY! Think about that. Facts? Truth? Those are DEAD ideals. What matters now is the most ENTERTAINING news. That's the world people've bought. I honestly think that if we were all dying right now of some massive meteorite about to hit Earth, as long as everyone had Whoppers ("I want my WHOPPER!") and ipods, then nobody would care. Consider that the chief argument against concern over Al-Quaeda when you hear people talking abotu how it's no big deal is "It doesn't really affect you in your daily life, and as long as it doesn't affect me I see no reason to get upset." Tell that to the Jews who died in the concentration camps. I honestly think we're lucky Hitler isn't alive today, because if he were, he could've done the Holocaust and nobody would blink an eye. You know why? Because there are people who sit outside the United Nations right now holding up signs that say "Get ready for the new Holocaust, Jews!" and "The Ovens Have Been Turned On Again! ALLAH AKBAR!" Those are both real signs I've seen held up at the United Nations building in the UNITED STATES. And. Nobody. Cares. A few people do care - like me, I care very much and can't bear to see such horrible hatred rebuilt by religious zealots - but we've learned nothing, and we've in fact UNLEARNED.

NBC has been caught mislabeling footage from Myanmar and Tibet and all major US networks suppress news stories critical of Israel that other countries' networks like the BBC, NHK and even CCTV have the integrity to run. Fox is messed up but it's funny as hell that brainwashed morons think they stand on some moral ground if they watch CNBC. ALL the networks dropped the ball on WMD, ALL fed the hysteria of Katrina, ALL heavily backed the bailouts for AIG. grow a pair and take your head out of your ass.

I've heard police, bus drivers, etc. use the 'n' word, for instance, or use phrases like 'Towelhead.' It's repugnant. I'm hoping that the "other side" IE the Democrats fight(s) fire with fire on this matter by doing hidden camera stuff on Republican lobbyists in public bathrooms. I was in a bathroom stall recently and a guy tapped my foot from the other stall, and I said back "Sorry, I'm not a Republican." This is how the Democrats need to fight back.

By the way, you can look on Media Matters of Factcheck.org for encyclopedic lists of Beck's "factual errors" and lies, but my personal favorite is when he lied on his own show about a meeting with Barbara Walters, later appeared as a guest on the View and admitted a number of the things he said were untrue, then went on his radio show the next day and claimed he hadn't admitted those things on The View. There used to be a number of great mashup videos circulating on that little episode. So yeah, hard to catch Beck in a lie. He even lies about admitting he lied, when his admission is on tape.

    Glenn Beck embarasses conservatives

    by drewlicious

    My brothers are very right wing guys and they can't stand him. They tell me he gives conservatives a bad name and he's a fearmonger of the worst kind. I saw one clip where he finds communist and fascist symbols all over Rockefeller Plaza and I made my mind up.....he's either a brilliant satirist or out of his freakin' mind. His ratings are huge but I have yet to meet a fan who can explain to me why they like him. Having said that is there will always be one who is worse.....Michael Savage. A truly hateful piece of garbage that even Rush Limaugh can't tolerate him. That's saying a lot.

    A few points

    by daggor

    I watch CNN, MSNBC and listed to NPR. I was barely aware this Tea Party thing had happened until the networks dragged the morning/afternoon footage from that Saturday out to prove FOX wrong. So, the problem we see there is that CNN beats Michael Jackson/Ted Kennedy/Chris Brown shit to death while MSNBC smirks smugly and rolls their eyes all evening... when a large portion of viewers are watching. The networks covered it, but didn't make a big deal out of it, until FOX forced them to. The smart thing to do would be to ignore FOX, but they played right into their hands.

    Even Jon Stewart has said these other stations FAILED of late

    by Big Dumb Ape

    To be fair, they're both right AND both wrong.<p>Sanchez is right -- and Fox is wrong -- since technically the other networks DID cover the story at one point or another.<p>However, the key word there is "technically." Fox is right -- and Sanchez is wrong -- because the other networks CLEARLY downplayed the story to an absolutely ASTOUNDING degree, much like they utterly failed to cover the ACORN story till it reached the boiling point and Congress voted to completely defund them, at which point it then became a story the news organizations COULDN'T deny or downplay any longer.<p>Which frankly DID make many of the news channels look like they were in the pocket of Obama or that their Left-leaning reporters were doing their mighty best to help Obama out by burying a story that could possibly hurt him, especially in the midst of the health care debate. Hell, even the Left's own beloved Jon Stewart praised Fox and took the rest of the media to task...<p>http://tinyurl.com/plzes5<p>Personally, I consider myself a moderate (though I am Right of center) and I try to be fair and somewhat open-minded, but give me a fucking break. On the day of the march I was actually watching TV that day -- sick at home nursing an arm muscle that I had hurt pretty bad. I was laying on the couch flipping around all the cable news stations, being a news junkie, and I would argue that anyone on the staffs of the non-Fox stations would be VERY hard pressed to say they covered that march fairly. I mean, come on, the numbers hover between 75,000 or an exaggerated one million -- so to be somewhat fair let's say the march had 100,000 to pick something that's still on the lower end of the scale. All the same, a march THAT size that filled up the area THAT much should warrant far more air time and coverage than it got on the other networks.<p>I mean, for fuck's sake, 100,000 people march and it barely gets air time on these stations, yet 10 Code Pink ladies could be standing outside a marine military recruiting center and you can bet that MSNBC or CNN would give it a major segment that prominently recurred on the hour.<p>And by the way, Rick Sanchez IS a fucking lame ass reporter who lets his bias continually get in the way of the actual FACTS to a story -- not to mention that as a human being, he's a bitter, angry fuck and a total douche bag, who pleaded NO CONTEST to driving DUI when he struck and killed a man. So he can fucking rot in hell for being the sack of human shit that he is.

    Never believed or suggested that African-Americans have "sub-par intelligence." Being ignorant or uneducated about something is not being of sub-par intelligence. I know very little about, say, the mating habits of the Bosavi woolly rat or quantum physics, but I'm generally a fairly intelligent guy.<p>African-Americans, Italian-Americans, Caucasian-Americans, people who wear funny hats, the Minister of Silly Walks, and pretty much every other human being on the planet ever, no matter what his race, religion or national origin have intelligences that fall within the same range and, I believe, are equally represented throughout that intelligence spectrum.<p>A high drop-out rate or voting for the same party in about the same percentages for 60 years in places where that same party has controlled the landscape for an equal amount of time with the belief that it's the OTHER guys who are holding you down simply shows ignorance, a lack of education, or blind effin' faith despite all evidence to the contrary, not "sub-par intelligence." I don't believe that. Therefore, I'd never say it.<p>I do firmly believe that if all white people voted for the exact same party at a rate of 90%-95% for 60 straight years that one should question some things there, too.<p>Nothing wrong with being white, black, or purple with green diagonal stripes.<p>Some day, though, one has to look at a place like Detroit, Chicago, or New Orleans and ask why one party which CLAIMS to want to help African-Americans and which draws their votes in STUNNING numbers year after year after year after year and which has controlled those towns for decade upon decade can't ever seem to make an appreciable difference in that community's quality of life for 60 years.<p>White Southern racism causing no progress to occur in Detroit?!?!? Crackers in Alabama holding up all that gains that COULD HAVE been made in Chicago?!?!? Inbred rednecks in Georgia holding up the fantastic life the New Orleans MIGHT have had?!?!? Really? Really?!?!<p>Some day one has to look at, for example, a school voucher program in Washington, D.C., which benefits African-American children, which is praised by every single black mother and father who participates in the program, which has achieved OUTSTANDING results for all of the children involved, and which Democrats are going to de-fund as a payback to (WHITE) teachers' unions (which doesn't support the voucher programs) and ask -- is this party REALLY for helping raise the level of the economic ocean for African-Americans? Or is this party simply about playing some sort of blame game while continuing to keep the black man economically disadvantaged and uneducated while blaming the OTHER guys for their lot (despite the fact that the DEMS have been the power brokers in African-American communities for YEARS and have done little to nothing to improve their health, welfare, and lives) in order to have an assured voting bloc every 2 to 4 years with class envy and race baiting?<p>That was my only point. Not that African-Americans are inherently of "sub-par intelligence."<p>All that having been said, similar arguments could be made for conservatives and Christians/values voters against the Repuke party. They say the same meaningless tripe every 2 to 4 years just to stoke the fires and pretend devotion to your causes then abandon you to do whatever they want AFTER you've voted en masse for them.

    As a moderate with no party affiliations, this crap gets really old. I don't trust extremists of any kind.. right or left, and this incessant bickering reminds me of 2 spoiled kids fighting over who got the biggest ice cream cone.. forgetting to notice all the while that they both have ice cream. Kind of jaw-dropping actually. Mom and dad always told me never to discuss religion or politics in public or you were just asking for trouble. Man, they sure seem wise right about now.

    Rick Sanchez raped my childhood

    by beane2099

    I grew up watching Rick Sanchez in South Florida. He was a pretentious ass then and he's a pretentious ass now. I don't really care about the Fox vs everyone bit, I just hate Rick Sanchez. I still remember his daily "Eye on Cuba" expose where he'd be squatting over a map of Cuba telling us the riveting tale of a woman doing laundry in communist Cuba (which wasn't too different from Democratic America). And then when he started crying as he walked the streets after Hurricane Andrew. What a perfromance! Why my parents watched him is beyond me. Damn you Rick Sanchez.

The old jobs had good benefits and the new ones do not. Is the fault of all the people staffing the countless Walmarts and McDonald's that they don't have health care? Those jobs are needed for our economy to function. <p> Not everyone can be a millionaire. Someone has to fill all these lesser jobs. They shouldn't have to be punished for it with no health care.

That way, when they oppose "big government,' they can't be called to task for taking advantage of the very rules President Obama want to give everyone else besides them. But, then again, Republicans love to take benefits and then call people whiners when they ask for the same courtesy to be given to them. "MINE! MINE MINE MINE! I WAS HERE FIRST! I WAS HERE FIRST!

Grants, student loans, scholarships and more. My point is this. The USA is the best country to succeed in. That's why we have legal and illegal immigrants coming here everyday. Capitalism and free enterprise have made alot of people millions. Check your numbers too. The majority of American's that want heath care have it. The rest either don't want it, are illegal, have jobs that don't offer it, or can't afford it. I assure you that is a small percentage. Do I think there needs to be some kind of reform? Sure.

    Your party won't get it done because the plan is simply too ambitious and wrong-minded. The original plan aimed to cover 46 million non-insured americans. This number was taken from the 2000 census and included (and I apologize for not knowing the exact figure to which this breaks down) illegal immigrants, working americans between-jobs, or not yet elligible for benefits (usually takes 90 days) and those who have it available, make over $50K annually and choose not to buy it. The final number comes out to about 12 million that should be covered by a public healthcare option. IF this was proposed outside of such a time of economic upheaval, IF it wasn't huge deficit spending, and IF it covered those who should be covered (12 million) and somehow reject fraud and waste, it would probably have a chance.

    I can't speak for vettebro, but I'll say while the status quo is far from ideal, it is better than the proposal that is on the table in every way. I'll agree with you that health insurance companies should have to take on high-risk subscribers, like auto insurance companies do. However, auto insurance companies also charge outrageous premiums for those services, driving high-risk motorists to drive uninsured, or commit fraud, but obtaining and paying the first installment of the policy, obtaining proof-of-insurance to stay legal with the local municipalities (renew their tags, keep from getting their car impounded and ticketed, should they be pulled-over). Proportionately speaking, these high-risk patients would be unable to afford this high-risk coverage anyway, but I say put it out there, I could be wrong. Also, name one other "rich nation" that has the prosperity or potential prosperity of the United States. I'm not saying it's great to be poor, but I'd rather be flat-on-my-ass broke here than middle-class in any of these other "rich nations". At least here, I have the opportunity to go from being broke to being rich. I'll take that astronomically-slim chance to a certainty of life-long mediocrity any day, my friend. Want to fix healthcare? Tort reform would be a good place to start. The left will hear none of it, because trial lawyers are their "special interests".

    "Praise God, help me Lord be a voice of righteous and have your wisdom. Yes, Jesus paid taxes but we are not Rome by God's design. God raised up America for such a time as this. America's form of Government is like no other nation. We are the closest thing to the perfect rule of man that God has laid out in His Word in the new Testament. We as Christians are to rule ourselves by our own free will through God within and His Holy Word. This nation was raised up by God to prove that man could rule himself under the power and authority of Christ. When man does he prospers as a nation or as an individual. The ruin of America will be because we America are no longer one nation under God. We are going our own way not seeking God or His Wisdom. We now have laws protecting animals such as the bald eagle where we are fined thousands for the destroying it's eggs or it's young. Yet we protect not our own from abortion. A fetus is a baby Jeremiah says God knew you in your mother's womb. John the Baptist knew Jesus in his mother's womb leaped for joy at Jesus in Mary' womb. The tax system of the Roman Empire some historian say was it's down fall. When they started to tax it's own people more than 50% of their income it started to crumble from within. So is America in danger. We the people of the USA have a voice and a choice unlike Rome. In America God gave us a Government to be a servant of the people not the other way around. We have freedom of speech and we better use it. Thank you Tim for the Video sing on. Watch Glenn Beck he is a Christian and he is one of the few in the media speaking the truth.

    by Cobbio

    are all queenly self-hating pathological liars. They're so revolted by their own reflections in the mirror they've come to believe the lies they've told about themselves and the world to justify their jobs and two-faced lives. It's hard to imagine the goo-piles of self-hatred they spew at themselves in private. Behind closed doors. When no one's looking.<p> Almost like Lewis Prothero, the thunderous political spokesman in "V for Vendetta."<p> Quote:<p> You think [God's] not watching over this country? How else can you explain it? He tested us, but we came through. We did what we had to do. Islington. Enfield. I was there, I saw it all. Immigrants, Muslims, homosexuals, terrorists. Disease-ridden degenerates. They had to go. Strength through unity. Unity through faith. I'm a God-fearing Englishman and I'm goddamn proud of it!<p> Insert "American" for "Englishman" here, and you understand what Fox's emperor-with-no-clothes propagandists are up to. They're scared. More than anything else, they're utterly, screamingly terrified of being discovered for the boring little fakes they absolutely are.<p> Stifle discussion. Lie. Talk before your respondents can answer. Lie. Talk louder than everyone around you. Lie. Dress cleaner and more provocatively than a Hollywood queen. Lie. Develop an intense hatred of yourself. Lie. Develop a bottomless, all-encompassing hatred of yourself. Lie. Make it seem like you're perfectly happy. Lie. Sit up straight in your glossy chair and tell it like it is. Lie.<p> Become a grotesque billionaire's nattering pawn.<p> Allow your booming lies to burn away the last vestiges of your dignity and sense of reality until there's nothing left of you but stinking, self-hating grave dust.<p> It's a good thing Fox's ratings are taking huge hits these days. The lie they pictured in the Washington Post will only accelerate this.<p> A hundred years from now, Fox and Rupert Murdoch will go down in history as sick, cult of personality deformities of humanity. Murdoch and his assembly line of talking heads will be hated and feared as much as Stalin's cold-war propagandists ever were. Likely more so.<p> Fuck you, Rupert. You don't fool me.

Geraldo Rivera, Chris Wallace, Greta Van Susteren, Shepard Smith, Fred Barnes, Steve Doocy, Neil Cavuto, Megyn Kelly, Bill Kristol, Karl Rove, Brit Hume, Dick Morris, Matt Drudge, Rick Leventhal, Steve Doocy, Jim Angle, Newt Gingrich, Dennis Miller, Juan Williams, JC Watts, Gretchen Carlson, Huckabee, Bernard Goldberg, Monica Crowley and Amanda Carpenter have worked diligently to make the poor fight for the country club set! It’s amazing the tasks they’ve completed. It always blew me away when I’d see a 3k dollar car w/ a “W” sticker on the back of it. How they’ve tricked this poor sob into thinking that the elephants have his/her best interests at hand. I’m from the heart of bible country, Oklahoma, or what I refer to as "the bible belt buckle" and if you are someone who doesn’t believe that this hatred for Obama is racially fueled then you need to come spend a week in the bible belt talking to the irrational jesus freaks who are scared to death that the anti christ has come and the end days are here.......This is the crazy shit I have to live around day to day. Funny thing is they sure love their black athletes @ the school I attended, University of Oklahoma. They never seemed to be mad at the money Bush and co. were dueling out.

    From the Time magazine cover story. He made 23M last yr.

    by GQtaste

    There are bigger one-voice enterprises in the world: Oprah, Rush, Dr. Phil. But few are more widely diversified. In June, estimators at Forbes magazine pegged Beck's earnings over the previous 12 months at $23 million, a ballpark figure confirmed by knowledgeable sources, and this year's revenues are on track to be higher. The largest share comes from his radio show, which is heard by more than 8 million listeners on nearly 400 stations — one of the five biggest radio audiences in the country. Beck is one of only a handful of blockbuster authors who have reached No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller lists with both nonfiction and fiction. (Among the others: John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell and William Styron. Unlike them, however, Beck gets a lot of help from his staff.) His latest book, Arguing with Idiots, will be published this month, and if things go as expected, it will be the third No. 1 with his name on the front published in the past 12 months. Taking a page from Stephen King — who once called Beck "Satan's mentally challenged younger brother" — Beck recently entered into a partnership with Simon & Schuster that pays him a share of profits rather than a traditional author's royalty, and he plans to create a range of books for every audience, from children to teens to adults.

    Beck is just an entertainer masking as a talking head.

    by GQtaste

    Beck describes his performances as "the fusion of entertainment and enlightenment" — and the entertainment comes first. "Like Limbaugh, Glenn Beck is a former Top 40 DJ," radio historian Marc Fisher explains, "first and foremost an entertainer, who happens to have stumbled into a position of political prominence." Unlike Limbaugh, however, Beck is a "radio nostalgic," in love with the storytelling power of a man with a microphone. He started in radio at age 13, inspired by a recording of golden-age broadcasts given to him by his mother — who later committed suicide, leaving the young Beck deeply traumatized. "He loves radio," says his longtime producer and on-air sidekick Stu Burguiere. "The way the mind becomes its own theater and the listener engages in the medium with you, drawing their own pictures in their heads." Beck once lovingly re-created the 1938 Orson Welles classic War of the Worlds for XM Satellite Radio, and he named his production company Mercury Radio Arts in homage to Welles' Mercury Theatre on the Air. (Read "Heeeere's Glenn! When the Lunatic Fringe Tries Comedy.")

But, gala, that is the most hateful smile I've ever seen. A big toothy cleaver. When you're talking about Skeletor here, he plays rough. You better wear a cup.<p>O'REILLY: Skeletor?<p>MILLER: Yes. I always look at Carville, and he's like a Muppet that was accidentally washed on hot or something. There's never any rational discourse with Carville. You just ask him a question and you might as well yank the pull starter on that ugly garlic knot of a head of his. He starts yipping away like some satanic Chihuahua under a strobe light. And he's PO'd here. He's more unhinged than a tater cellar door in a Cat 5 hurricane. Richardson got under his skin.

    FOX NEWS is the ONLY channel to cover ACORN's mess...

    by TheGhostWhoLurks

    And you morons have the NERVE to whine over a one-page ad??? You people are truly a JOKE! >:D<p>Where were CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and MSNBC for a whole WEEK, while videos of ACORN employees across the COUNTRY telling people how to set up child prostitution brothels filled with 13-15 years old illegal immigrants from El Salvador were being broadcast ONLY ON FOX NEWS???<p>Where was the "mainstream media" when Obama's Green Czar Van Jones was revealed to be a self-proclaimed Communist, racist and 9/11 Truther handpicked to be an advisor to the President???<p>There's a good reason why FOX NEWS' ratings are THREE TIMES those of its competitors, and its LOWEST rated evening shows have more viewers than CNN or MSNBC's highest rated programming. It's the same reason why Obama is deathly scared to go on it and would rather talk to Univision than risk appearing on FOX NEWS SUNDAY. FOX NEWS is the ONLY news station that has the balls to DARE question the Obama administration, isn't actively sucking up or COVERING UP for Obama and his scumbag friends — like ACORN — and holds a skeptical view towards his policies and the impact they may have on the country and world at large.<p>Seriously, you idiots trying to demean their work simply sound childish and petty — and look incredibly foolish — when you consider that Obama was elected with a clear majority, yet despite that, FOX NEWS gets viewership numbers it could NEVER accomplish from conservatives alone. 3-4 million for O'Reilly or Beck, compared to only 1.5 for Olbermann and Maddow??? The ONLY way FOX NEWS can achieve those numbers is if Republicans, Independents AND Democrats (like myself) are watching faithfully on a daily basis! And the ONLY reason people would be such dedicated viewers is if they found the OTHER news stations to be SEVERELY lacking in both content AND reliability! Which 24-hr. news channel was it that panicked and claimed that the Coast Guard was opening fire on a craft in Washington DC this past 9/11??? It sure wasn't FOX! :D<p>One last little tidbit to keep in mind: Glenn Beck gets between 2.5-3.5 million viewers a day at 5:00 EST. At that time, 3/4 of the country are STILL AT WORK!!! Keith Olbermann, on the other hand, only gets 1.5 million (on a GOOD day) at 8 PM primetime when EVERYONE'S home!<p>Clearly, you guys — and those like you who've staked your whole self-esteem and self-worth in Obama's "success" and take any BAD news about him as a personal affront — are in the small MINORITY when it comes to whether or not FOX NEWS is a trustworthy and reliable source for news and information.<p>I'd tell you to stop being so childish and grow up, but unfortunately, you're simply following to "lead" of Obama himself.

Yes, it was inappropiate.Yes, She lacked class but there are far worse celebs or atheletes I would disregard/shun:Michael Vick,OJ and Jason Williams for example but i'll give Serena a pass anyday.If anything, that "singer" Lloyd Marcus is another discrase to Black people..well next to the other Uncle Tom M.Steele.What Black person in their right mind whould show up at that Klan Rally that was the Tea party ?!?

    Just so you know, the mob rule of Reublicanism doesn't work with people who have a brain. "Well, what do you matter? I've got a lot more people who like what I like!"

    You completely miss my point. The country voted for Obama by a clear majority, so in order for FOX NEWS to CONSISTENTLY, 24/7, get the stellar ratings it does (and leave CNN and MSNBC crawling in its dust cloud), a large percentage of OBAMA VOTERS have to be watching FOX NEWS over the other cable news stations for their news information!<p>In other words, even voters FOR Obama TRUST FOX NEWS more than the stations that fawn over Obama's every word and sniff his butt.

This particular story is stupid scary. Fox runs a poster and all the libs wet their panties. Its kind of funny. The poster should say that all the other news outlets under-reported the rally and tried to put it in a bad light. That would be the truth. Honestly, who gives a rats ass unless you have some sort of agenda? Sadly I guess i'll be going to moviehole to get my movie news now.

    Reacting to ad campaigns

    by mynamesdan

    ADs are such a massive part of the entertainment industry. They're the frontline, along with websites like this one. <p> I'm a Britfag and so watching US news reporters freak out like that feels very weird to me. News international have a strong grip on the UK media but it isn't a stranglehold like they have on the US media. <p> Murdoch's boy recently delivered a lecture arguing that the BBC ought to be downsized to allow independent news organisations to profit from pay-for-news models on the internet. google it. He stated that the BBC are trying to monopolise news by being too diverse, and that left no room for freedom of opinion. <p> BBC are by no means perfect, but their characteristic reserve and rigour when it comes to journalism continues to set the tone for UK news broadcast. It's the reason our reporters don't scream at people. We wouldn't like it. <p> Protest is a beautiful right, but the fact that a news channel is writing slogans for protesters removes all possibility of impartiality. <p> Opinion always creeps into journalism somewhere but it isn't true that all news outlets are opinion-trumpets. <p> Fox, in the meanwhile are entitled to make their money, celebrate their sponsors and advertise their shows, using blatant lies if they dare to. <p> AICN are entitled, as the billboard of so much advertising, to discuss the world of advertising and marketing. <p> Imagine a world where every billboard had a comment and forum section. Imagine how many people would be buying anti-aging cream in THAT world. <p> In your ironic position you stand against the incredible freedom of this website and you agree with those who would compartmentalise and so compromise the new media. we should be muddying lines between different media platforms, not forming them. <p> Good luck getting to sleep, if you aren't asleep by now, that is. when i'm overtired and drinking myself sober, it's usually a big meal that puts me to sleep. maybe that would do the trick.

But as far as the media, the less politics flavor it the more I like it. This may simply be a matter of taste but I prefer news and politics to be impassionate and boring. Because rational discourse is not exciting. Journalism in America used to be a public trust. It is not anymore. When I look to see a review of what's on TV this week, I'd rather not see my TV reviewer starting a pissing contest. And that's a good idea, some waffle house will put things right.

    No name, allow me to bore you for a minute

    by mynamesdan

    nice to be the only one here you aren't flaming. <p> In the UK we have three main news providers, BBC, ITV and SKY. <p> BBC provide a reasonable television news service which is beholden only to the government in terms of it's impartiality, and if the government tells it what not to report, it reports that it was told not to report something, which is reassuring in a half-hearted kind of way. The BBC insist that their employees do not participate in public displays of party or political preference. BBC employees were not allowed to attend the protest which preceded the invasion of Iraq. <p> SKY are the fox network. BskyB are one-hundred percent the same network as FOX news and purveyors of the same sort of nonsense. In my earlier post I mentioned the reserved nature of UK news broadcast- It is SKY who are entirely to blame for every move we make away from the calm, suited model. Having a helicopter-cam makes any news seem relevant. <p> ITN, or ITV news as they are more recently known are the most interesting case. Up for contract renewals in 2012 this company (like their parent company, ITV) have survived repeated takeover bids by SKY including one which was quite remarkably illegal. ITV news (on original independent channel 3) has long given up the ghost on significant news reportage and now concentrates its energies on local news programmes, shock-tabloid hour-long shows (presented by Trevor Macdonald) and sport. <p> ITV, whilst narrowly avoiding creative control by the SKY network is part owned (20%) by the DAILY MAIL group who are like the FOX news of UK print-media, taking a highly right-wing stance. anti-abortion, pro-monarchy, pro-forces. <p> Simultaneously ITN produces CHANNEL FOUR NEWS which is a multi-award winning programme, broadcasting at 7pm in the UK. It is arguably the most balanced and thorough television news programme we have and is as groundbreaking in it's reportage as it is balanced, frequently noted for giving all parties an often accepted right of reply. <p> so, yes, we need to be wary of our news broadcasters on TV and particularly of SKY (FOX/MURDOCH)'s repeated attempts to reduce the variety of voices reporting the news. <p> IMHO the new battlegrounds for journalism are websites and radio. <p> "The BBC website is a thing of beauty and a national treasure" (charlie brooker) and the Guardian's website is also a very fine service (and presently free of charge, god love 'em) and these things give the appearance of security. Radio news is provided free to the world by the BBC and is of a very high standard, sadly the BBC don't broadcast news of anything like this standard on their music and youth orientated stations concentrating instead on scandal and celebrity gossip. This model has been hastily leapt upon by all the commercial music stations in the UK and believe me when i tell you that 90% of the commercial radio stations in the UK recieve their news bulletins from SKY. It's a very worrying situation, but then the commercial radio industry in the UK has been so corrupt for so long it can only eat itself or become redundant thanks to internet broadcasting. <p> finally, a word on press journalism. <p> All the free papers in the UK are provided due to being full of commercials and the only group able to amass such fantastic sponsorship enough to subsidise the free press model are news international, who are SKY, who are FOX, who are MURDOCH. <p> You're right, there is a 'fast-food' ethic to much UK broadcasting but there is also a very high standard to be found by those who care to look, just as NPR provide a remarkable free service to the US and long may they continue to do so. (with jazz!) <p> It is incumbent on us all to be aware of who is providing our news content, to consider the motives of their sponsors and in some case their oligarchs. In the UK we really need to keep a sharp eye on SKY. they'll try it again. for the meantime make a point of pointing these things out to your family and friends, and if you see someone reading the Mail, punch them in their stupid heads.

    I vary my news intake

    by yodaismyhomie

    For several years I have switched networks on a regular basis. Some nights I watch ABC while others I watch CNN. Sometimes I watch FOX. Some days I go to the BBC website for my news. The point is, you will NEVER find a truthful news network. They rush stories to try to beat the "other guy" before having all the facts. They all have political bias (it's true...some are liberal, some are conservative) and they all sell what they want you to believe. Anyone who gets their news from only one source is foolish. Always check other facts. And definitely check out the BBC site and the english version of the Al Jazeera news website. Both of those sites present our news from different political ideologies than what we hold and it can be quite interesting. Sometimes getting away from our political biases and reading from another's political bias is a great thing.

    Spastic Jedi

    by solvseus

    Did you actually just try to blame the economic crisis on CRA? Proof that Fox News watchers don't have a freakin' clue what they're talking about other than what's parroted to them. Only about 16% of the bad loans were from those low income gov backed ones you're talking about. The rest weren't. Don't want to bother explaining things like predatory lending to you, or how it hurt middle class people more than those lazy, poor people you hate so much. Kinda the same with healthcare, where it's not the poor who are suffering most (a lot of them can already get help, or just don't pay) it's the middle class that's suffering, which is why a vast majority DO want hc reform. As anyone who ACTUALLY understands what happened, we could have paid off every bad loan (something we would have had to do if the bad loans were the gov backed ones) for cheaper than money we spent. The major problems actually came from the unregulated, like credit default swaps. Had we not gotten rid of the protections that were in place prior to the deregulation of the 90's, so the financial markets couldn't get too big to fail (why Bush's people and the fed HAD to bail them out, which Obama is only going with because he has to, wanting to add regulation to prevent it, but letting himself get stopped by the righties and Blue Dogs crying SOCIALISM) this wouldn't have been the problem it was. But it was, so quiet now so the big kids can fix it, which, if anything, according to the ACTUAL economists who've been right about everything so far are saying, we should be doing MORE regulating and more (and faster) stimulus. It gets a lot more complicated, but I wouldn't expect the average Fox viewer to understand because it's not a catchy -ist. And after Bush and Reagan added more to the national debt than everyone else combined, the fact that any of you are bitching about another trillion or so over the next 10 (ten, that's a 1 and a 0) years (that's YEARS) to fix an unsustainable system killing more people per year than 15 9/11's while putting hundreds of THOUSANDS of middle class people (most of whom HAVE insurance) in bankruptcy, like I said earlier especially if it can actually SAVE us money in the long term, a bit hypocritical no? <p></p>As for anyone who thinks Fox sux having to be liberal, again, not all of us are partisan pricks. We can see the positives and negatives of both sides. But unlike you far righties who are pretending to be moderates, no, the rest of the MSM isn't a bunch of far left liberals, and do suck on a regular basis, but Fox does indeed suck far, far worse. Doesn't take being a liberal to see that. Just takes a critical mind who likes living in the reality based community that's neither left, nor right. Something Fox doesn't seem to be part of, no matter which way it leans. Not everyone is on a "side", all things are not equal, and even if it got some things right others don't cover as much (AS MUCH, they still all cover them), just because you perceive bias elsewhere (which again, few defend... still doesn't mean the amount is as equal as you think it is) doesn't defend Fox's GLARING lack of journalistic intergrity, on a REGULAR basis that makes those other douchebags look like Cronkite by comparison. If you think Moyers is too liberal, you must think facts are too liberal. If you like Olbermann, you're a liberal who isn't getting all the facts. If you like CNN, could be either way (liberal my ass). If you like Scarborough, you're a conservative and you're not getting the whole story. If you think Stossel is a moderate who tells the truth, you're right leaning and probably wrong about a lot of things. If you like Beck, you're a moron who needs to have their head examined, and even when you're right once in a while, you are certainly completely and totally wrong most of the time about everything. See above. The rest of us will get our news from various stories on the net, backed up by reliable resources, enjoy Stewart/Colbert, and actually know what they heck we're talking about when debating politics.

While you lot spread a bunch of factually incorrect bullshit, and like Palin, worse, are arrogant about your ignorance, treating knowledge and those of us who have it as "elitists" for wanting things to get better for the majority of us while you support those same corporations and politicians who are screwing us over and call it freedom. You're angry because you lost, you have nothing, and the rest of the country (and world) are passing you by in ways you don't understand. Keep up with the talking points and -ists right into oblivion, the rest of us will be debating politics with the Dems, who don't even need the wacko far right, because they're their own opposition. And again, if you think they and the media are far left, you are so far to the right, everything is to the left.
