To Ed, Malcolm, Mike, or whoever you are....<quoted text>
At least you didn't call anyone a "Teapublican" or blame Fox News for the ills of the country on at least one post. That is an improvement.
Fox News is not the main CAUSE of the ills of the country, but it is a contributing factor. It is more accurate to say that Fox News is a symptom of what is wrong with our country.
First, some of the TP and Faux News objectives are worthy and well-meaning but the network itself was high-jacked and became a mouth-piece for "defeat Obama at any cost" crowd made up of Cantor, Boehner, Demint, and countless others. Second, along with the leadership of the Republican Party, Fox News became an enabler and gave its tacit approval to liars and birthers and racists and, therefore, has lowered the level of public discourse!
The end does NOT justify the means!
As I have said, you could not end up on the right side of a moral issue if you were in a water slide headed straight for it.
