And, yes, "The Square", is a documentary. No actors. No reenacting anything. It's real people who recorded a real revolution as it was happening in real Egypt in 2011 and 2012.

Well it's going to be Scott vs Charlie one way or the other__I voted against Scott btw but did vote for a couple of (R's) Mica for one. This year I had to seek out the local candidate profiles to rule out any tea party fks or religious freaks__not an easy task in my area. And I voted for a half penny tax increase__probably the only (R) that did that.

I wonder if Carol voted. She likes to share everything__hmm maybe she's a felon or worse an Independent. Or maybe she couldn't afford to miss her topix $hift.

Counterpoint: Fox News Is Ruining a Generation

Late last month, New York magazine published a really good piece by Frank Rich that made the argument that it might be time to ignore Fox News. That the network, like the reactionary viewpoint it champions 24/7, may seem powerful at the moment but there’s no denying that it’s staring down the barrel of demographic extinction. The median age of Fox’s audience is 68 and it’s not replenishing the viewers who die off simply because it exists only to terrify old white people into believing that their country is being taken away from them by progressives and their “new” way of looking at America and the world.

I agreed with Rich’s assessment that there’s no choice but to let Fox News’s point-of-view literally die. Maybe that’s because on a personal level my own father is one of the seemingly rare Fox News viewers who watches the network only occasionally, as part of a “fully balanced” diet of varied news sources. I don’t have to deal face to face with a crazy conservative relative who lives and breathes whatever Fox tells him to, and therefore can’t see the immediate damage the network’s nonstop avalanche of bullshit can do to those who submit to it.

But there’s a pretty good column over at Salon right now — yes, I’m recommending Salon — written by someone who does understand the damage Fox News can do in massive quantities. Edwin Lyngar’s take is that abandoning those aging, largely white Americans who get their entire worldview from Fox means abandoning his own father, who has immersed himself so fully in Fox News’s alternate reality that he’s apparently hardly recognizable anymore.

The salient part of the piece:

I do not blame or condemn my father for his opinions. If you consumed a daily diet of right-wing fury, erroneously labeled “news,” you could very likely end up in the same place. Again, this is all by design. Let’s call it the Fox News effect. Take sweet, kindly senior citizens and feed them a steady stream of demagoguery and repetition, all wrapped in the laughable slogan of “fair and balanced.” Even watching the commercials on Fox, one is treated to sales pitches for gold and emergency food rations, the product cornerstones of the paranoid. To some people the idea of retirees yelling at the television all day may seem funny, but this isn’t a joke. We’re losing the nation’s grandparents, and it’s an American tragedy.

People talk about the imminent “death” of Fox News itself, because of an ever-aging demographic. Again, Frank Rich makes this case, but I think his argument is dubious. Certainly the audience is graying to oblivion, but it’s a cold comfort to those of us who watch our parents or grandparents drown in an incessant downpour of outrage. We will only see the “End of Fox News” when my father and his contemporaries die. I do not want to watch my father and his entire generation spend their remaining years enraged at utter nonsense.

It’s tough to argue with the points Lyngar makes. In the abstract, it’s easy for people like me to say,“Screw it, they’re dying off anyway,” but when the ones dying off — those wasting their golden years filled with rage over what they see as the destruction of their way of life — are your loved ones, I suppose it’s an entirely different story.

The end result is still the same: Fox News’s die-hard audience won’t be around much longer. But for those who have to live with them while they’re still here — who call them father, grandfather, uncle and so on — that’s not exactly a comforting thought.

The reason they Tank No One wants to Listen or Watch Idiots make an A** out of themselves and call it News!!


You obviously haven't paid attention to the polls. Fox may be #1 in cable "news" but their numbers have been falling just like the rest of cable news.

"In total viewers, the network was down 20% in total day and 16% in primetime compared to Q2 2013. That’s not as precipitous as CNN’s fall over the same period, but it’s far worse than MSNBC’s...overall, in a cable news environment that is losing viewers year-to-year, MSNBC did the best of holding on to what it has."

And, one can hardly classify "The Five"; "Fox and Friends"; "Special Report with Bret Baier"; "On The Record with Greta"; "The O'Reilly Factor"; "The Kelly File" and "Hannity" as "news". They are personal opinion shows purely there for your entertainment.

Rainbow Push coalition never attends a march or rally or looting without being paid. Every time you see blacks and JJ Jackass, they are being paid. Good thing they took those bangers to MO, because it cut down the shootings in Chicago over the weekend, only 37 blacks shot other blacks.

I said that after numerous requests I' in the process, I have a number of people in the business helping me for free. Old envy bitch. I did come here on a vacation from California and went back and decided I liked here better, I'm sorry you find that confusing, no normal person worries about someone else like you and retarded Edd does. At least he has an excuse. The women do love me I can also see why a a loser like you would be envious. Soo have fun crybaby. What would a real rich man like you be so miserable??? Lying scumbag is the only answer...Hypocrite.
OH, you " decided I liked here better"?

Baawwaaahhh!!!!

I was expecting you to try and out-black me like you did Saturday when I told you I hired an "American" who happens to be black and doubled his salary, then you had to throw in the token we are taking two black kids.

Your token vs. my really helping someone.

Who is Edd and why would you like Bumpass better than sunny California? More mooch opportunities there?

As far as lying goes, that would be your routine, Democrat. You don't have a dignified bone in your body, Obama voter.

Back to your original confusion, I said I was going to the beach on Saturday, not the whole weekend, moron.
