from my experiences in this state, which recently includes a new customer who told me she knows all about politics/why we should hate Obama because she watches 'political shows'/FOX, it's a very strong brand of swill.
MSNBC has very strong brand of swill that is just as bad and at time really worse and its just not FOX News either.

Conservative Propaganda 101: Write Articles On 4th Grade Level
David Corn has published another epic investigative report uncovering a super-secret right-wing cabal formed to shape public opinion via coordinated messaging and organized smear campaigns.
Groundswell is an amalgamation of conservative activists and politicos including Ginni (Mrs. Clarence) Thomas, John Bolton, Frank Gaffney, Allen West, and many more. They also count as members folks from the media including Fox News, Breitbart News and the Daily Caller. They use Google Group correspondence and regular meetups to brainstorm their schemes. Corn obtained some of the emails distributed through their network and what they reveal is at turns frightening and funny. His article is a must read, but here are a few excerpts:
'The Groundswellers feel that they too often lose the political narrative to their progressive rivals. One memo that circulated among members declared,“We must reclaim the language and put ‘a face’ on our messages; tell stories. Write articles on 4th grade level!”'
Yeah, that’s their problem. They have been reaching over the heads of their constituents by communicating at 5th grade levels and above. What were they thinking? Or perhaps it’s the other way around. Maybe they were communicating at a 3rd grade level all along and this is a directive to bump it up a notch. Considering the rampant idiocy of some of what we hear from the right, that seems like the more likely scenario.

As I've been saying, the neocons call the tune and the right-wingers do the marching and heavy lifting without every really knowing why they're doing it other than that they were told. Neocons have very different purposes than right wingers but the right wingers never notice that they're really not getting their way.

MSNBC only exists because of Fox so it only makes sense that they'd be just as ridiculous.

Nevertheless, you're admitting that Fox "News" is swill correct?

What???
Having recently transitioned from self-employment to employment I can tell you that I'm paying less than half now for far better coverage that includes dental and optical. The disparity is in my income which is $30k-$40k lower than when self-employed.
Well good for you. The question however is what are you paying for now as to what were you paying then. If you are and were paying for prepaid medical care then you are a sucker.

"GENEROUS taxpayer subsidies of more than $100 million helped drive Ford Australia to a $24.9 million after-tax profit for 2010.

It is a $12.2 million profit increase over 2009's $12.7 million profit, and contrasts with a loss of $274 million in 2008.

The bulk of the $100.8 million government subsidy came as credits from the federal government's Automotive Competitiveness and Investment Scheme (ACIS), as well as grants from the now-halted Green Car Innovation Fund, and the Victorian government.

''It's a pretty pleasing set of results from our perspective,'' Ford Australia chief financial Frank Lazzaro said."

The Australian government looks pretty good at 'picking winners over losers'.
So, a good and reliable ally of the United States, Australia, lured a multinational American Ford Motor Company with tax money to expand and produce cars there rather than in the Ford parent company home base of auto factories in Detroit. Why did Ford Motor Company stop caring and just shuck off their traditional obligations to American auto workers and communities here that made them the huge , multi-national auto giant that they are now?

The reason there aren't more jobs is that the Republicans have blocked any proposed legislation that would create them. The House GOP wing nuts would rather have 38 votes to repeal the ACA which they knew weren't going anywhere and which cost American taxpayers almost $1.5 million every time they did it.

Good News

Over the past several years, as the Republican party has slid deeper into ideological dogmatism, naked legislative obstructionism, mindless partisanship and increasingly heartless social policy, it has largely spoken with one voice. Whether you're the Senate majority leader, the governor of Texas or a state senator in Florida, the message and the madness have been remarkably similar.

But immigration reform has proven to an exception to this general rule.

Throughout the 2012 presidential campaign, Republican candidates practically tried to outdo themselves in hurling invective at the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants – and the very idea of treating them with dignity. But after the 2012 election, a prominent party elite began singing a very different tune.

Unable to accept the reality that the electorate rejected their conservative vision for America in re-electing Barack Obama, many Republicans have convinced themselves that their problem in 2012 was one of demographics – namely, the overwhelming loss of the Hispanic vote.
