Barack Obama, our next President

STAY TUNED
On Tuesday night’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on the Fox News Channel, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that major news networks might have secret emails proving that the White House canceled plans to assist the besieged U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.
Gingrich said that the bombshell emails could be revealed within the next two days.
“There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down,” Gingrich said.
And we should believe this six days before the election.

As if Fox doesn't have a political axe to grind.

The Daily Show is entertainment.

As for Fox, they may report the same stories as other networks, but the difference is the commentator spin they put on them.

Fox News is the most distrusted name in news, according to a January 2011 poll from Public Policy Polling. Thirty-four percent of respondents said Fox News was their least trusted source for news. At the same time, however, 34% of respondents reported that they trust Fox News the most. The network also saw its trust levels increase by three points since 2011. The results coincided with political affiliation, with 68% of Republicans choosing Fox News as their most trusted source. Democrats were split almost evenly between PBS, CNN and ABC.
It appears that Republicans really do tend to trust only Fox, while Democrats tend to trust other networks pretty evenly. That explains a lot. There’s nothing like an open mind to understand that global warming data are real, that creationism is not fact-based, that continuing tax advantages for the richest among us will not help the middle class, that trickle-down has never in fact worked, President Obama was born an American and not a Kenyan, that President Obama is neither a communist nor a Muslim, that Presient Obama’s presidency has not been a failure, etc., etc., regardless of the vile fictional constructions that Fox feeds it faithful and obedient every moment of every day. Fox creates, reports and decides — you repeat. No other network makes such a big production about being “fair and balanced” and “fact-checking” because the whole thing is a scam.
There, I feel better now! And I’m prepared for the onslaught — the wrath of the Teanderthals.
From Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_Policy_Po...

"Public Policy Polling (PPP) is a U.S. polling firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina.[1][2][3] PPP was founded in 2001 by businessman and Democratic pollster Dean Debnam, the firm's current president and chief executive officer.[1][4] The company's surveys use Interactive Voice Response (IVR), an automated questionnaire used by other polling firms such as SurveyUSA and Rasmussen Reports.[5]

PPP's polls have been described as "Democratic-leaning, "[6]."

So what is your point(if any)?

34% trust Fox and 34% don't. So what?

And Liberals trust all of the other News Sources. Why? Because all the other News Sources are Liberal mouthpieces. So where in the hell are you going with this fuzzy-headed Liberal rant?

Maybe they do - we all know you libs and Obama would love to have the authority to shut FOX down.

Anyway, even the ultra-liberal NY Times has been forced to admit the Obama administration new the Embassy was a target.

"The warning about the camps was part of a stream of diplomatic and intelligence reports that indicated that the security situation throughout the country, and particularly in eastern Libya, had deteriorated sharply since the United States reopened its embassy in Tripoli after the fall of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s government in September 2011."

Face it. Your guys dropped a very big ball on this one.

Three Congressional investigations and a State Department inquiry are now examining the attack, which American officials said included participants from Ansar al-Shariah, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and the Muhammad Jamal network, a militant group in Egypt.

“Given the large number of attacks that had occurred in Benghazi that were aimed at Western targets, it is inexplicable to me that security wasn’t increased,” said Senator Susan Collins of Maine, the senior Republican on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, one of the panels holding inquiries.

How can you call someone a liar and then prove them right???? There has been no new news come out of it because it's still under investigation. Everything current has been commentary from National Review, the Monitor and blogs. CNN, the Times and everyone else is just speculation on the ramifications of it to the election. You have to actually read :-(

Trusted name my a$$, Fox news is seen as a comedy show outside the US it's so out there it is laughable. So as a result every nickle & dime comedy show takes snippets from it to lampoon. You never see that happen with the BBC or any other credible news organisation so how come it happens with Fox. It's only the Bible belt that watches it because they don't know any better.
You exhibit the worst that Liberalism has to offer. To wit: everyone outside of the US who criticizes something in the US is simply right!
Self-flagellation is a Liberal trademark. The EU is drowning in Socialism and is facing a serious breakup. The Euro's days are numbered. Socialism is killing Europe and the European voters are to blame for demanding "free" everything.

And here you sit using them as judges to demean America's Fox News Network and conservative values. Getcher azz over to Greece and give it away, baby.

Sure, they're partisan, but no different from MSNBC.

And unlike whiners from the left, you'll hear no cries from conservatives to shut down or censor the network.

Actually, no. We believe in freedom of speech unlike you knuckle draggers. It's the far right that wants to censor everyone and legislate everything that they disagree with.

Yes, the ball was dropped. So lets count, when a Democrat President drops the ball, 4 American people killed. When a Republican President drops the ball 4,486 American people killed. Maybe you should watch who you support before calling out ball dropping, eh?

Of course you did, but google "truth about benghazi" and it comes up a whole lot different. Just googling "washington" will give you a gazillion hits, the main stream media let this go weeks ago.

This is a classic example of right wing spin.

Europe is not "drowning in socialism" just because you say so. Nor are ALL their voters demanding "free everything".

There is an element of truth in what you say, but you exaggerate. For example, much of Spain's trouble lies in a popped real estate bubble similar to what happened here. However, in support of your argument, a good deal of money was spent on social programs as happened in Greece.

The EU may, indeed, break up. But the cause of it, assuming it happens, will be a handful of countries, not the majority.

Well, at least you admit they're partisan.

Care to provide examples of any MSNBC hosts demanding Fox be censored?

Once huge difference between Fox and MSNBC is that MSNBC doesn't dole out huge financial contributions to political candidates.

Here's one example of Fox News Spin:

As the health-care debate was heating up in the summer of 2009, Republican pollster Frank Luntz offered Sean Hannity some advice.
Luntz, who counseled the GOP on how to sell the 1994 Contract With America, told the Fox News host to stop using President Obama’s preferred term for a key provision.

“If you call it a public option, the American people are split,” he explained.“If you call it the government option, the public is overwhelmingly against it.”

“A great point,” Hannity declared.“And from now on, I'm going to call it the government option, because that's what it is.”

On Oct. 27, the day after Senate Democrats introduced a bill with a public insurance option from which states could opt out, Bill Sammon, a Fox News vice president and Washington managing editor, sent the staff a memo. Sammon is a former Washington Times reporter.

“Please use the term ‘government-run health insurance,’ or, when brevity is a concern,‘government option,’ whenever possible,” the memo said.

To all those Conservatives on Topix,From now on you will
get a fair and balanced political point of view from viewing CBS-ABC-NBC-MSNBC-CURRENT-NPR- CNN-CSPAN as we
have decided that Fox News is too probing and way too
investigative,so we are closing it down.until after the
elections,when I will be a whole lot more flexible just'
like I told Vladimir!!

Effective immediately there will be a team of former
Eastern Bloc Inspectors Monitoring all Broadcasts to
your homes.Any resistance,will be met with Force by'
My Private Army (that I snuck thru in the middle of
the night attached to Obama Care) The UN has made all
provisions for those who defy this act.Also this bill
will be banning all fire arms at the same time!!!!!!
Signed your POTUS!!

One often-cited research study about the faulty news coverage of Fox News is from the University of Maryland Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) Research Center. Released in October 2003 was a study entitled "Misperceptions, The Media and The Iraq War.

The study was to see the frequency of misperceptions concerning the news coverage on the Iraq War. The questions focused on whether Iraq was involved with the 9/11 terrorist attacks, whether Iraq was supporting al-Qaeda terrorists, whether weapons of mass destruction have been found, and whether world opinion was for or against the U.S. invading Iraq. The reality was that no links between the Iraqi government and al-Qaeda terrorists have ever surfaced and no weapons of mass destruction have been found. In general, world opinion about the U.S. invasion of Iraq is overwhelmingly negative or non-supportive.

The study also noted that "the extent of Americans' misperceptions vary significantly depending on their source of news. Those who receive most of their news from Fox News are more likely than average to have misperceptions."

In one poll, 68% said they believed that Iraq played an instrumental role in 9/11.
