lol

so FOX's 'mistakes' are unintentional?

i don't think so. maybe you missed this....

In a peculiar and suspicious chain of events, Fox News ran an article by commentator Todd Starnes with the provocative headline “Saudi National Questioned in Boston was on Terror Watch List.” There was no evidence in the article affirming the title’s allegation other than Starnes’ assertion that “sources have told me.”

Starnes went on to say that his sources alleged that “Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi had been deemed inadmissible” for entry into the United States because he was engaged, or likely to become engaged, in terrorist activity.“Two additional sources,” Starnes said,“have confirmed to me that Ali Alharbi is set to be deported as early as this week.”

The article also notes that national security officials, including Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, have denied the reports and stated explicitly that Alharbi is not being deported, nor was anyone else with any connection to the Boston marathon bombings. All of the chatter in the right-wing media about this was definitively debunked days ago.

Despite the dismissals by Napolitano and others of these rumors, Starnes weaves a speculative tale of innuendo that he fails to back up with any substance. The plot of this potboiler is aligned closely with Glenn Beck’s recent foray into the same wilds of reckless slander. Beck has been titillating his fans for several days with promises of jaw-dropping revelations that he literally described as the most important story in the history of the country. His pledge to unveil the sordid details today went conspicuously unfulfilled.

But here’s where the plot thickens. Beck’s delusional ravings might have been supported in some small measure by the article posted by Starnes. Mind you, Starnes did not have any better proof than Beck that some untoward activity was taking place, but at least his column could be cited by Beck as a rather useless and circular corroboration – and, in fact, it was. Which makes it all the more curious that Fox News made the column disappear. The link currently returns a “No Results Found” page. Making matters worse, Starnes also posted the article on the conservative Townhall web site, where it was also scrubbed.[Note: Both pages remain in Google's cache and can be accessed here: Fox News cache --- Townhall cache]

What can explain this odd self-censorship by two separate, unaffiliated web sites? The articles simply vanished with no comment or correction. Was there a discovery that they were so far off base that they put the publishers in jeopardy of being sued for libel? If so, simply removing them would not be an effective defense without an apology for any harm done. It would more likely serve to prove that they had an awareness of the potential for harm and sought to cover up their actions.

so the difference between FOX and NBC.....NBC will admit it's mistakes.

The point is, we're not addressing the real problem of the health care crisis. Costs are too high and there is far too much over-treating and over-diagnosing than necessary.
We've created the problem ourselves by feeding the monster.
My confidence in anything the UN, WHO or other like minded organizations is lower than mole droppings.

You are intentionally missing the point, Dood.

Someone else hear just recently spoke to the NBC election results screwup as far back as 2001. They've been apologizing forever about everything from the way they doctored the audio on Zimmerman to stupid comments from their Liberal crew of anchors.

And now you want a side-by-side war of Liberal vs Conservative?

<quoted text>. That where we differ. I know the streets probly as well as you. But you have to admitt we all profile, its not necessarly racist its realist I see a bunch of guys dressed like gangsters or thugs my guard goes up and as your from camden you have to admit you look over your shoulder at the same. The cops see the same thing and react the same way. You can't blame them . When someone tries to look and act like a thug they will be looked at like a thug.now in the city the cops are there because the majority of the crime is there, honestly what will the cops find when they shakedown sone kids in the burbs compared to the city? You know the answer to that as well as I do. Bottom line is there's no amount of money you can throw at the problem to make it any better. The current programs only encorage the problem. Its all about choice,fixing the problems has to start with the person who has the problem and their actions to change it. You can have 500 help and bennifit programs but not one will help anyone that's not willing to help themselves.
"profiling" by anyone, be it cop, citizen or even criminals themselves, is a critically important survival technique and response. Liberals have attempted to turn it into a social sin but no one is listening - at least those of us who wish to remain alive.

When I leave WalMart and see a group of Hoodies doing the Doopa-Hangdown near my car, I turn around and head back inside until they leave.

Cops profile minute-by-minute but have to officially deny that they do to placate Liberal politicians at City Hall. A glaring duplicity has grown up in society as a result. Say one thing to the Liberal Media Cameras but then return to your profiling afterward. The prison and arrest numbers show the truth about racial crime problem while the bleeding-hearts claim a separate reality exists for the poor, downtrodden crooks, thieves and murderers.

Take your pick. One reality can be lethal to your health. The other is great for show to your Liberal neighbors.

Really? you do know there is a navy build up going on in the Arabian Sea which would bring 3 carrier strike groups in the regional operational theater, which by mostly military accounts is a war footing.

You know that those 3 carrier groups will have more fire power between them and all the world's navies combined?

I doubt you have anything to worry about Iran, I have a feeling when those ships are in place you are going to get a inspection, compliance and a lot of other boot licking or at the very least Israel is going to bomb the sites while we sit there daring Iran to do something in response.

the point is...you don't want to talk about FOX 'mistakes'. doesn't fit your wingnut narrative of the oh so bad 'liberal' media. but with you it's always a one way conversation.

it's just too bad for you that your 'conversation' is in the minority. there's one conservative network and how many of the other kind? and oh yes those ratings, but add up all for the other kind and.....but even that is of no matter when you look at the FOX viewership vs the total voting public. what is it, like 2%? not so impressive is it?
