Defending Fox News Is a Fool's Errand

King , from CNN, just admitted that CNN is worthless. CBS just had to get on it's knees and blow every Viet-Nam Vet out there as an apology..
So Mr. Bill wants to makes Fox the issue. Just Like Obama uses gays to steer the attention away from Benghazi.
Democrats are slimeballs from hell. Ain't they?

People will watch the network that validates their worldview. Ignorant uneducated morons watch faux 'news', radical liberals watch MSNBC and educated people go to European sources for an impartial look at the news! If there had been television in Nazi Germany Herman Goering would have started a network like faux 'news.'

Any one who doesn't want to hear both sides of any issue is a FOOL. You don't have to agree with ANY news source but it is good to learn both sides of issues.

Everyone who is being honest knows that Fox is far more balanced than Current or MSNBC.
