if the MSM (NBC,ABC,CBS) had done it's job FOX would have never come into existence....
instead FOX found itself a niche, viewers....that's a fact..just like some prefer Burger King, and some prefer McDonald....
EXCELLENT POINT! That is a cold hard fact. In a climate of lies interspersed with bouts of entertainment, truth sells. And sells well to a freedom loving nation like ours.
That was founded on inalienable truths.

The reality is that the numbers Fox News’s prime pulls each night would get every one of its shows canceled
For what it's worth, the ¨reality¨ is FOX News has more viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined.

Then again, left wing ¨reality¨ is, well, unrealistic to say the least.

Too fking bad, huh? Thank God for checks and balances, eh ¨dumbo¨?
When the country was drowning in early 2009 with the Bush recession, the Democrats wanted to send a rescue boat & the Republicans wanted to throw a life saver.

Since there were more Democrats voting in Congress, the Republican way was not in the majority.

The Republicans then said " f*ck this country - if you don't do it my way, nothing will get done" as the Republicans were willing to make Americans suffer & hope they blame Democrats instead of actually helping Americans recover.

That's funny -- kinda like the way the world views Obama. A living parody, taking himself WAY too seriously while everyone else is pushing his buttons and having giggling fits behind his back.

Armed Grandfather Saves Grandson, Self

LITHONIA, Ga.-
Police say two men got into a shootout with a Lithonia grandfather, carjacked the driver of an AT&T van, then took Dekalb County Police on a chase on a major interstate.

Police say the duo may have been planning to rob Luther Tookes when he pulled into the driveway of his Lithonia home. Tookes had his 9-year-old grandson in the backseat when he saw the men in a Lexus outside his home.

Tookes got suspicious that the men were up to no good, so he did the first thing that came to mind.

"As soon as I saw him pull out a gun, I put it in reverse and rammed their car," said Tookes.

The grandfather and two men then exchanged gunfire, according to police. Tookes was grazed in the head and taken to the hospital.

Then tell me what it is that you do??? You are against all things that most Americans are for... like equal pay, increasing the minimum wage, Immigration, jobs bill, so what friggin good are they except as a road block and the recovery from their last eight years of bungling everything they touched.

The million or so viewers who remain fiercely loyal to the network are not, for the most part, and as some liberals still imagine, naïve swing voters who stumble onto Fox News under the delusion it’s a bona fide news channel and then are brainwashed by Ailes’s talking points into becoming climate-change deniers. They arrive at the channel as proud, self-selected citizens of Fox Nation and are unlikely to defect from the channel or its politics until death do them part.(As Sherman writes,“Ailes’s audience seldom watches anything” on television but Fox News.) Hard as it may be to fathom, Fox Nation is even more monochromatically white than the GOP is, let alone the American nation. Two percent of Mitt Romney’s voters were black. According to new Nielsen data, only 1.1 percent of Fox News’s prime-time viewership is (as opposed to 25 percent for MSNBC, 14 percent for CNN, and an average of roughly 12 percent for the three broadcast networks’ evening news programs).

A television and film producer’s first-person account of his mistaken arrest by Beverly Hills police has attracted widespread attention, KTLA-TV reported on Tuesday.

Charles Belk’s story has been shared just under 30,000 times since being posted on his Facebook page on Saturday. According to his post, Belk was walking to his car on La Cienega Boulevard when he was detained and ordered to sit on the curb.

A picture accompanying the post shows Belk seated and handcuffed with two officers standing near him. Belk stated that six police cars were near him at the time.

“Within an hour, I was transported to the Beverly Hills Police Headquarters, photographed, finger printed and put under a $100,000 bail and accused of armed bank robbery and accessory to robbery of a Citibank,” he wrote.“Within an evening, I was wrongly arrested, locked up, denied a phone call, denied explanation of charges against me, denied ever being read my rights, denied being able to speak to my lawyer for a lengthy time, and denied being told that my car had been impounded…..All because I was mis-indentified as the wrong ‘tall, bald head, black male,’…‘fitting the description.’”

According to files compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the founder of the world’s largest Christian television network financed his endeavor with the assistance of numerous international criminal organizations.

Documents obtained by MuckRock show that the FBI was investigating Trinity Broadcasting Network and its founder, Paul Crouch, for being in communication with the infamous Bronx mafia figure, Vincent Gigante, with regards to a “narcotics transfer of funds,” which is how the FBI classifies money-laundering.

In another document, Crouch is listed alongside Reverend Earl Paulk and Oral Roberts as “anti-Semitic white supremacists [who] were supposedly receiving funds from the [Palestinian Liberation Organization] to ‘run guns’” via an “Islamic Education Center” in Baltimore, Maryland. Both of these investigations were tagged as relating to “financial flow” involving narcotics.

Crouch and the Tustin, California-based Trinity Broadcasting Network he founded have come under fire in the past for “the prosperity gospel” that is preached on the network, which promises immediate material rewards to viewers who donate generously.

Stop Beating a Dead Fox

The conservative news channel’s only real power is in riling up liberals, who by this point should know better.

....The most interesting news about Fox News is that for some years now it has been damaging the right far more than the left. As a pair of political analysts wrote at Reuters last year,“When the mainstream media reigned supreme, between 1952 and 1988, Republicans won seven out of the ten presidential elections,” but since 1992, when “conservative media began to flourish”(first with Rush Limbaugh’s ascendancy, then with Fox), Democrats have won the popular vote five out of six times. You’d think they’d be well advised to leave Fox News to its own devices so that it can continue to shoot its own party in the foot.
