Ever wonder how and why the same catch words are used 1,000 times a day on Faux news?

Because they are told what to say and how to say it. And they know full well, the nastier they are towards Democrats, the quicker they rise in the ranks.

Do you still want to call it "news"? Maybe a better word is the "Republican Propaganda Channel".

Have a look at 33 internal memos (talking points) at Faux

You quote Media Matters then call out Fox on partisanship? Try again.

Does that work over on AZ? Really?

Deeman, Media Matters is not a news source, rather it reports on the truthfulness of the news as presented. Like them or not they do fact check and provide the
original source for their releases. They never use blind items, that is reports without attribution. They never use unnamed sources. What is your problem with that?

Yea, I enjoyed watching the Chris Matthews Show Sunday morning... for about 5 minutes. I couldn't quite stomach his panel of Cynthia Tucker and Dan Rather. How fair and balanced can you get? At least Fox lets people from both sides argue it out, and they are a cable channel unlike NBC and you have to pay to get it. If you don't like it don't watch. I don't have a problem with left wing MSNBC, its cable and I don't watch. Big deal

Nope.

That's why he's peddling his hate over here.

Wait till you here the one about how the USA funded and supplied Iraq's invasion of Iran ... or how McCain is actually a traitor.

And you can NEVER say anything about the messiah (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQ1YrUTcY68), not even his name!

Jeff,
The "Outfoxed" documentary confirms what has seemed obvious to me for many years; there is no journalism going on at Fox and the other major outlets are following suit because of Fox's financial success. The doc. points out how brazen Fox is in furthering the owner's agenda and how large corporate ownership has placed all of MSM in a position of providing virtually no useful information or news that can be trusted. After watching "Outfoxed" I was even more grateful for the Internet but worried that controlling the net has to be the next target.

And you say I hate?

You with the endless links to videos and sites spreading filth about Obama. You who accuses Democrats of wanting another 911 just to get back at Bush. You who accuses people of Marxism, socialism, Communism, if one word is different from you or God forbid, we happen to disagree with ANYTHING this administration has done?

You who posts 300 times a day spreading your doctrine and attacking anyone who dares question it.

Does it ever sink in, or do you ever wonder why you are the most "ignored" person on "several" forums.

And here's a clue, it's not because you are the spreader of truth, or that everyone else has a secret agenda to see this country destroyed and we all fear you will expose us. Although I really believe that is what and how you think.

Do you realize that people either hate you or laugh at you? I admit I got drawn into the hate thing, You brought that out in me, and if the day ever came that saw you in person, I'm afraid that hate would come out again.

But for now, I'm going to try to be part of the crowd that laughs at you.

And in the end, maybe the people that tell me just to ignore you and you will go away are right, we'll see.

I really hope all that hate doesn't eat you up from the inside.

That is much closer to the truth.

Isn't that the problem really. Just like the good old red and blue states clearly showing the divide.

It is happening with the news providers as well. It seems more and more are either way one way or way the other way.

I think we can all agree that Fox news is neither fair or balanced, and I think we can agree that huffington and a few others are the same just the other direction.

Maybe when the ones that watch one or the other will just admit it, we can begin to talk like we should.

The only people that call Fox fair and balanced is Fox themselves. No one would argue they do not slant to the right. It is just crazy when someone calls Fox partisan and then gives a quote from media matters or CNN. gayole is the leader of this type of BS.

<span style="color: #FF0000"> Didn't know Rush was on Fox. Of course, agreeing that Fox slants right and that Media matter, Huffington, MSNBC, who's anchors get erections when seeing Obama, falling over leaning left, it makes you wonder why there is such an uproar over Fox as there are many more liberal media outlets that are leftist. Just becuase they are not a commercial success does not mean they don't have those slants. </span>

No, it's a symptom.

The problem is people like you, Gayle, Mikey, et al who insist upon being spoonfed pap by one side only and ignoring any and all opposing POV's completely.

If you watch Fox ONLY you get a warped view of the news.

If you watch CNN ONLY you get a warped view of the news.

If you watch MSNBC ONLY you get a warped view of the news.

If you watch ABC/NBC/CBS ONLY you get a warped view of the news.

If you watch numerous sources you can begin to get a grip on what's readl.

Intelligent people eventually get that.

Partisan moonbats and wingnuts never do.
