1. Well, leaving aside our joke here, I'll say that HUME & Chris WALLACE
did a bang-up, totally-pro job at their debates, very especially compared to Tweety who acted the fool and pandered up his man crushes of his Rethugs.

HUME and WALLACE asked sober, difficult questions, pinned down candidates who were evading the questions, and followed up.


Nothing could be lower than Tweety's, "What could you imagine worse than having the CLINTONs back in the White House?"

5. That seems to be the running consensus
That the Fox moderators have been heads above the moderators from the other networks.

Whether they would perform the same if moderating a debate for the Dems is the $10,000 question. However, in light of what's been documented at the debates thus far it seems like the answer would be "yes".

2. The candidates can "face Fox" just fine, Mr. Ailes
It's the endless anti-Democrat/Liberal propoganda complete with out-of-context clips that Faux runs that is the problem.

3. Jon Stewart once tricked Faux tool John Gibson into admitting that Fox News
was exactly like Al Jezeera.

6. Al Qaeda has more credibility than FOX News but ...
FOX News is more of a threat to the Democracy.

7. Regardless, they should stand and not go on Faux News. Yes,
Edited on Wed Jun-06-07 01:31 PM by EV_Ares
maybe Hume is a better interviewer than Tweety. But what comparison is that. Also, probably better than Blitzer who has not done a bangup job by any means.

However, there are other good interviewers that are not on Faux.

We all know what and how Faux would be if they had the dems on.

Their spots have not changed at all.

If faux wants to be a republican network that is great with me and let their RW listeners stay tuned and be clueless about what the real story is and what is going on.

The rest of the country can tune in to fair and unbiased media.

8. Put some of our guys on Hannity
and don't allow Hannity to interrupt everything and make 16 accusations at once. Fox Network is too afraid to do that.

9. The usual "comparison to CNN" is flawed ...
Rupert Murdoch owns and controls what goes on FOX ...

whereas CNN, originally under "Liberal" (I guess because he married Jane Fonda) Ted Turner, is now owned by a corporation and the board of directors kicked Turner out of running the companies that he created ...
