1. Unfortunately, people take Fox News
seriously. They don't see that is a propaganda arm of the republican party.

3. Only about a million a day out of 300+ million, that's OK
for them to be one percenters!

9. How can anyone NOT see that Fox is a GOP propaganda tool?
The bias is so blatant and open on their programming that I am having a hard time understanding how so many Americans can be so utterly duped by this charade, and compelled to take their garbage reporting as gospel truth.

12. These are people who either are drawn in because
the hear what they want to hear or they are people who somehow still believe because they heard it on a television news channel that it must be true.

I see it all as a failure of people to develop critical thinking skills.

19. Not real news
I'm an American living overseas and when I show people here FOX news, they are like what the hell!? Sounds like propaganda. I just agree with them because I think that's exactly what it is.

You never see news reported with such a slant like FOX anywhere else in the world. That's because it's not really news!

21. They do and try to defend
it as being bi partisan because they have Dem interviews too. I heard that out of the mouth of two elderly individuals. "Fox news is less bias as other republican networks because they have Democrats on there too."
I responded with a chuckle and simply said.. Go ask anyone watching this election closely and ask them, which network is well known for being bias towards republicans. I bet they tell you Fox.

To which they had no reply...

Since then, one of the two confided in me they were leaning towards Obama. :toast:

2. It's a beautiful thing seeing FAUX operatives getting caught
red-handed lying on national television.

4. Wow - they do have a dog in the fight
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/20044244...

Quote: "He was referring to comments Obama made Sunday in Pendleton, Ore.: "Iran, Cuba, Venezuela - these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don't pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us. And yet we were willing to talk to the Soviet Union at the time when they were saying, `We're going to wipe you off the planet.'"

McCain's campaign on Monday distributed a video clip of Obama making the comments.

McCain listed the dangers he sees from Iran: It provides deadly explosive devices used to kill U.S. soldiers in Iraq, sponsors terrorists in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East and is committed to Israel's destruction.

"The threat the government of Iran poses is anything but tiny," McCain said.

Responding to McCain, Obama told a town hall rally later Monday in Billings, Mont., "Let me be absolutely clear: Iran is a grave threat." But the Soviet Union posed an added threat, he said. "The Soviet Union had thousands of nuclear weapons, and Iran doesn't have a single one."

----

They cut out the context out in favor of one candidate and report it as news. This network is the biggest joke. Even the most conservative people I know admit this network is extremely biased.

5. My, my they are defensive..
... obviously they took it out of context. I also notice the quote said Soviet Union, not Russia.

It Foxland there is no difference.

I laughed at the hand waving and head weaving of the "anchor".

13. I love how at the end she basically says the only reason you
got the upper hand is because Tucker's satellite never came back up.

15. This isn't the first time I noticed
recently, that they didn't have a satellite feed for their own side (a Republican). They didn't have Tucker Bounds, that happened again recently for another Republican strategist on Fox News who got cut off. What is going on? Do they have some internal technician resistance?

23. My Favorite
technical glitch was on the Rachel Maddow Show where she was interviewing someone (in congress?) from the other side...had him (politely as usual)cornered and suddenly he couldn't hear her. I can't hear you" took his ear piece out and walked away. Rachel was all "Okee dokeee" and "alrighty then". I love her!

20. That quote WAS taken out of context.
Obama was talking about the Russia of the 1950s-1980s being a more serious threat back then than Iran is today.

26. Fox "News" is funny.
I used to be offended by them and the rest of the Republicans, but now I recognize them for what they are: A spoof of the Colbert Report.

28. Fux Snuz just gets people on there and talks over top of them and bullies them...
...that isn't news. They're AFRAID to let anyone who disagrees with their propaganda speak. So, they don't. They remind me of an insecure bully. They ARE insecure and they DO have their agenda...
