Since it IS the most-watched news network in the US, and has been for decades, I don't think that ONLY the geriatric set watches FOX. And the obvious reason that it is the most-watched news network is because UNLIKE ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and thE rest of the leftist entertainment networks, FOX is NOT a partisan network supporting The Obamaniac iIn his MURDER of American citizens without indictment, trial, nor conviction.
FOX NEWS is ALWAYS Fair. And Balanced.
THAT is why so many people watchit instead of teh Leninist-Stalinist-Obamaniac news networks.
Studies have shown that people who watch Fox news are the least informed, and have the facts wrong most often. Fox news isn't really news anyway -- it's just right-wing propaganda. It's the American right-wing version of Russia's Pravda. And just as trustworthy. Fox calls themselves "fair and balanced" but they are the least fair and balanced of all mainstream news sources.

Equal Right? What "Equal right" gives the queers the right to disregard the SCOTUS ruling that the BSA have a Constitutional right to exclusive membership? The queers feel they have the right to disregard that SCOTUS ruling, yet if SCOTUS ever rules in favor of gay marriage, the queers will certainly expect everyone to abide.
The queers think they can have everything their way. Stand fast BSA. Hold off the queers for four more years, until we get a real POTUS.
Private groups have every right to exclude whoever they want. However that does not mean they have a right to expect public funding for their group. And that does not mean they are immune to criticism regarding their discriminatory practices.

No one has said that the Boy Scouts must be forced to welcome gays because it's against the law or because the Supreme Court has said they must. What is being said is that they are hypocrites for saying the foundation of the Boy Scout code is honor and being a good citizen when they also promote treating some current and potential members and leaders as second-class citizens who need to be ousted merely for being who they are, and not for anything they've done.

Boy Scouts in other countries like the UK and Canada have had no problem accepting gay members and leaders. The US branch's whining over the topic tarnishes the good reputation of Scouting.

What facts? That Fox News is the most popular news channel?(You do know that being popular does not mean that it is accurate, or fair, or balanced, right?)

But in this case, it always is.

And do you support the ability of the POTUS to kill American citizens, without indictment, trial, nor conviction, whenever teh POTUS wants to ?

Well, perhaps you should try reading it for the first time because nowhere in the U.S. Constitution does it even MENTION "FREEDOM AND EQUALITY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL."

Hey Foxy -- a new poll shows Fox News has hit a new low on the credibility scale: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/06/fox-...

Is that why you're pushing Fox at the moment? How much do they pay you to do it? http://newsin15.blogspot.com/2012/06/paid-rig... discusses the fact that some people who post right-wing comments on forums just like this one are actually paid to do so.

huffington post ?! The arch-conservative who did an about-face and became an arch-liberal ?! The one who marries an openly gay man, claims she didn't know, and then says later she knew all the time. She has credibility ?! ROFL !
