Sorry dude... I don't watch MSNBC. I get my news from several sources including NBC, ABC, BBC and CNN.<quoted text>
I seriously doubt Rupert Murdoch is a "hands on manager" of Fox News. I think its safe to say they have a general rule to guide them: Leans towards "family values" lean away from "gay rights"; lean towards Christianity, lean away from Atheism, lean towards America, lean away from Terrorist sponsors.
Everyone else in media..."Lean Forward" = progressive code for "Bend Over" and to Hell with America!
Tell me, does your ward allow any other channel than MSNBC?
And the "leaning" of Fox News has nothing to do with America... it's called Yellow Journalism... They make up what they report and Murdoch does control what is reported on Fox, I assure you.
But idiots like Fox News viewers are like sheep... if they don't have a herder they don't know how to think or how to believe... and especially don't know how to vote. And if the person has dark skin, Like President Obama, Fox News Viewers are going to be against them by default because "Republicans and Tea Partiers can't allow a Black man to take over the country.
Conservative Christians are just as extreme and fanatical as the Islamic Extremists would has terrorized our nation. Whether it's killing people in the World Trade Center or killing people in an abortion clinic... or gaybashing in Laramie... terrorism is terrorism. Christians are no different than the Taliban or Al Quaida in my opinion. I grew up Baptist... until I realized how extreme and ridiculous the Baptist church is.
But the last election made it clear how Americans think... and the GOP and Tea Partiers are on their way out in this next election... I assure you.
