No matter what the story is? Fox News will distort the story. They are the culprit, that lights a fire and (Fox News) then stands there pouring gasoline on it, to keep it going. Instead of being "Fair and Balanced" they exploit a story, put their spin on it. We have seen that 24/7 with their liar Mitt Romney and slanted polls. What a bunch of spurious hosts with a bunch of unscrupulous guests with their slanted views. I
hope they lose more viewers every year. Any news is better than Fox.

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Yeah, well, you know what? I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work, and I think that --

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Is that your job? You just talked about being a journalist!

MATTHEWS: Yeah, it is my job. My job is to help this country.

Matthews wasn't done with his odd new job description ... An incredulous Scarborough kept pressing, astonished at such a complete 180 from Matthews's repeated insistence during the Bush presidency that he had to hold the government accountable.

SCARBOROUGH: Your job is the make this presidency work?

MATTHEWS: To make this work successfully. This country needs a successful presidency.

Gee...let me see
Hannity has been on TV for years; and will continue to be on.
Anderson Cooper can't last 2 years.
Glen Beck has a radio show; and owns his own cable station.
Guess facts don't play well in your fantasy.
The show that never was watched was Anderson Coopers; and reason it was canceled.
The other shows have large audiences; and advertising on those shows produces profit to the stations assuring continued programming.
Anderson Coopers show went broke.
FOx News has big bucks on their side. The very rich will keep pumping money into fox news to distort the truth for their benefit not the middle classes. I am glad that America has spoken and I look forward to a brighter future for the middle class

Lots of people...those who want a different perspective. The other FIVE networks collude in presenting the leftist party line.

Before Romney issued his statement today, an open mic capture the press coordinating questions to ask Romney, with one saying “no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question”. I’ve transcribed it to the best of my ability but the audio is below for verification:

I’ve labeled one as the CBS News reporter as I believe it is Nancy Cordes who works for CBS News. If I’ve gotten that wrong I apologize and will correct.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER:…pointing out that the Republicans…*unintelligible*…O bama….

CBS REPORTER: That’s the question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER:*unintelligible*

CBS REPORTER: Yeah that’s the question. I would just say do you regret your question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Your question? Your statement?

CBS REPORTER: I mean your statement. Not even the tone, because then he can go off on…

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: And then if he does, if we can just follow up and say ‘but this morning your answer is continuing to sound…’–*becomes unintelligble*

CBS REPORTER: You can’t say that..

**Later**

CBS REPORTER: I’m just trying to make sure that we’re just talking about, no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Do you stand by your statement or regret your statement?

UPDATE: Newsbusters says the the CBS News reporter is Jan Crawford and she was discussing this with the NPR reporter Ari Shapiro

Nothing has changed. We still have the US House, 30 governors offices and dozens of state houses. And Obama got fewer votes lat week than Bush got in 2004.

Good. Then you won't be wanting our money anymore and all Repubulican businesses will post their policital preference so we'll only shop there. Course, we may ask to see their voter registration card to be sure it's marked R or I.

Don't worry about us. We'll just set up our own treasury to operate from.

Hell of alot more tax revenue is collected on wages than welfare assistance, the Repubs will be fine. We'll get Mitt to invest and grow it for us.

Was this from today, or back when he had been captured on hidden video making the truthful statement that there are 47% of the country that will always be loyal to Obama the grifter, er, excuse me, gifter?

Without Fox News, 3/4 of the people who post on here would have nothing to write. These aren't their own ideas they're putting forward, rather the talking points that their heads get filled with.

Those of us old enough have already been down the road of "Tax the rich" under Jimmy Carter, which resulted in 18% interest.
Unfortunately the generation hardened by the Great Depression and World War 2 is gone and the depraved hippies of the Woodstock Generation are now running things.
You must still be having hallucinations from the 70's because you've stated nothing factual.

The only tax that increased under Carter was the capital gains tax, it went from 36.5% to 39.9%. The top marginal rate was 70% as it had been since the early 60's when it was dropped from 91%.

Now that we have the correct numbers, do you wish to revise your statement?

Isn't it time to give Fox News the Big Heave HO? Those that SPIN, lie, with their so called "Fair and not Balanced" News, have hurt America. They have hurt the Republican Party. With Mike Huckabee (phony Baptist Preacher), Sean Hannity (bigot), Bill O'Reilly (phone sex scandal) Fox And Friends, Ann Coulter (Liar to sell a book), and their fake panels. Then if they have someone with an opposing view, do they get to talk? Hell No, they talk over them. If I was a guest, I would take the biggest, most powerful bull horn, I could find to talk over
The other three Republicans, plus the Host of the Show. The question I have for these loony Republicans on here, how in the Hell do you stand to listen to their slant and ungodly spin? How on God's Green Earth. These knuckleheads at Fox News, if the temperature was 110 outside, for 8 weeks, a hurricane ripping up the East Coast, if asked? Could the earth be warming? Nope. They would have a panel of experts on, telling actually the earth is cooling. If fires on the West Coast consumed Hollywood, burnt a million homes, the flames fanned by the Santa Ana Winds. The earth is cooling.

Old John McCain is asking about when they were going to get briefed on Bengahzi? They were having a discussion on it. Old John is on Fox blabbering away. That is your Republican's for you. Plus the President just beat the Hell out of another BUZZ BOMB, Mitt Romney. Now he is bitching why he lost, just shut up Mitt, You are toast.

New talking point

union goes on strike

Hostess Bakery closes; and 19,000 lose jobs permanently.

that strike worked out real well.

Unemployment benefits should not be extended to a single employee of Hostess.

reap what you sowed.

let the union that lead you sheep to slaughter pay you.

Every Republican that voted for George W. Bush should watch this exchange of that no good lying Sean Hannity. He will not let anyone talk, that opposes his view.

Watch Republicans, if you have the stomach?

No wonder Fox News should be droped like a hot potato. And they call this news?

I hope Obama tells Fox News he got the majority of the votes, and rams it down their throats. Who is with me on this one?

How many believe Obama will pay off the Bush debt. We aren't talking about any other debt but what George W. Bush racked up. How much do you think it will cost America to fix the mess George W. Bush left behind. We aren't talking about the Great Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter. Just that stinking, lying, no good war monger George W. Bush, after all he is to blame for the mess that Obama is trying to fix as we speak.$6,000,000,000,000.00,$7 , or more. Will the Bush mess be fixed by 2030? How much do you guess Bush will have cost America? 15-to 20 Trillion dollars. Who will ever know?
