55. I think the statement was rhetorical. But didn't the government
already pull the plug on Bill Maher's 'Politically Incorrect'? Phil Donohue's best rated MSNBC Show? Ashley Banfield, and how many of the best journalists, such as Dahr Jamail, Greg Palast, Paul Craig Roberst eg, are basically banned from the U.S. media?

So while it may or may not have been rhetorical, it's not as though we respect the 1st Amendment, it's just that we're selective about it. And Faux is not on the hit list of the MIC apparently.

I personally think Faux's mission is to rouse up anger toward Arabs/Muslims so that when they are ready for war with Iran, the dumbed down audience of completely indoctrinated morons will be fully in support of it barely aware that Iran is a different coutnry than Afghanistan.
