FOX is not a news channel, it is a video version of a right wing radio talk show. They only report the stories that re-enforce their own beliefs or position and ignore any counter points or alternative views. Even when they attempt to present an alternate view the are rude and interrupt the speaker. The also never show the bad or stupid things that anyone on the right does. You won't see Cain's missteps or Perry's drunken rants. YOUTUBE="Fair and Balanced", FOX News not so much.

Its only a matter of time before these Fox news idiots go away. As more and more Americans realize that this country is still under religious oppression and rise up against it their viewership will continue to decrease.

That's a nice thought, Jalene, and I hope you're right, but Fox Noise has the largest audience on cable "news." Never underestimate the stupidity of the American public.

Fox is about as ballanced as a toddler with vertigo, and as fair as a Texas Execution. This is not news, and neither is what fox broadcasts.

Well you certainly hit the nail on the head if that's the correct way to say it. I feel the same way and you put it into good words. I watch CNN, they give all sides and views.

When some says I'm honest or fair and balanced, it's only because they are not honest or fair and balanced. Fair and balanced speaks for itself.

This past weekend I was channel surfing and paused on Fox. Bill O'Reilly was discussing Herman Cain with a nice young pretty blond Republican Strategist (I forget her name). They spent nearly five minutes doing nothing but the typical Obama bashing. What struck me was the number of times the perky blond and Bill kept insisting that the difference between Conservative Republicans and the Liberals and the rest of the left, was that Republicans believe in individual rights; that they don't judge groups but individuals. Plus they kept complaining about how Obama has been on the campaign trail for over a year now. WTF? I guess the equate fundraising with campaigning.

It was so comical hearing them bashing leftist liberals, the leftist press etc. and still insisting they don't judge groups! Immediately after that Bill ran the results of his latest Fox poll of Fox viewers. The question was, "Aside from Fox News, where do you get your news?" Talk about a slanted survey!

He practically chortled over who was at the bottom of the list. MSNBC, big surprise!

I have to agree Fox News is nothing but a video version of right wing radio talk shows.

How does Sheperd Smith live with himself?

Or Bill Hemmer or Greta...or so I've heard whispered.

But that Sheperd appears to be the fella they invented the slur, "nancy boy," for, imo.

Why anyone would watch Faux News on a regular basis, I don't know. It's a train wreck that never ends, the rubberneckers can't get enough.

I accidentally come across the Jerry Springer Show once in awhile too. Sometimes I pause in mildly morbid interest, but a few minutes is all I can stand.

Absolute no one can prove that kids are killing themselves because they are gay. It could be for many reasons. The one I would like to see examined is were they on anti-depressants at the time of their deaths. Anti-depressant use in people under the age of 18 has been very much connected to suicides and suicide attempts in teenagers. The other thought on this is that using teenager suicide for political reasons is a Progressive thing. So, of course, the networks that are the most blatantly Progressive, CNN and MSNBC, would join right in the act of USING the awful deaths of these young people to further Progressive causes. It is a shame. Fox is to be commended for respecting the privacy of the grieving family of those suicide victims.

You don't believe that kids can be bullied to desperation for being perceived as gay?

Sorry, dear. Every person who went through such bullying can tell you differently, and some kids kill themselves to end the pain.

It's not the only thing that sparks such bullying, but it's a particularly nasty one.

They simply CAN'T make a statement on the issue in any direction without losing.

You are a miserable excuse for a human being.
