Brilliant.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Fox News has done a lot of snarky coverage of the Occupy Wall Street protests. But when protester Jesse LeGreca <span style='font-size: 14pt'>responded to Fox News' offer to get his message "out there" and with "fair coverage," he let forth with some plain talk that included frank thoughts about Fox News <u>that somehow never made it on the air.</u></span> But in this age of YouTube, Fox could not make it go away by simply not airing it. The New York Observer got it from Occupy Wall Street's media team and we got it, too, thanks to a friendly email.

By the way, the show Fox News' Griff Jenkins was interviewing LaGreca for was the supposedly liberal On The Record. </div></div>

Ha. Fair and balanced ? you be the judge (http://www.newshounds.us/2011/10/03/the_occupy_wall_street_video_fox_news_didnt_want_y ou_to_see.php)

Do you even know what "Fair and Balanced" means? Fox decided to not air the part where the guy includes "frank thoughts about Fox News", what is wrong with that? How many companies out there will advertise/air negative publicity? Based on the article you quoted, Fox aired everything the man had to say until he started trashing Fox. What is wrong with that?

It is typical of every single news station or other profit related business in the entire world.

If they didn't want it seen ... why did they release it?

There are probably 10 hours of news, not commentary, recorded for every one released.

It was never aired. Words mean things.

Fox News is not the only one with a camera.

Typical Fox coverage up till now has derisive.

Q

eg,

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">One day after Bill O’Reilly came up with his interesting – uh, theory – that the Occupy Wall Street protests are a <u>George Soros plot</u>, Sean Hannity suggested that they’re <u>really a Democratic/Obama plot.</u> Hannity got his – uh, theory – from the baseless accusation made by Herman Cain who admitted he had <u>no facts to back it up</u>. This, during the same show in which the live audience had cheered at the accusation that President Obama is a “bigger disaster for the country than 9/11.” So how did guest “Democratic Strategist” Joe Trippi handle this hate mongering? By ignoring the 9/11 comment and arguing that the protesters don’t like Obama either. Way to go, Joe! No wonder you’re a Hannity fave. </div></div>

LMAO!

They just did an expose' this morning on MSNBC that monitored the coverage of this Solyndra BS that Repiglicans are blowing totally out of proportion.

Fux Noise aired three time the coverage on this latest Repiglican non-story witch hunt, as MSNBC and CNN....

Repigs are following up with an unprecedented demand for The President's E-MAILS!!!

THESE PIGS ARE OUT OF HAND,TOTALLY!

Let them give up their own e-mails!

Better yet, lets find all of those missing e-mails from the unscrupulous Rove era, first, BEFORE THESE REPUB NUTJOBS START MAKING SUCH A RIDICULOUS DEMAND!

Fair and balanced means showing BOTH sides of the story. Fox has admitted, Ailes has admitted, that they think they are the balance to so called perceived liberal Media.

This guy,s words were obviously a coherent argument against the message they were promoting - that these 'few' protesters were just pot smoking lazy nutjob hippies- that they did not DARE show it.

A news channel that refuses to report the truth is not a news channel, its a propaganda channel.
Fox News supports a political agenda and that's not allowed. They should be taken off the air.

They are a disgrace.

OMG, sometimes you are so dumb. The fact that they admit to having a political message/commentary disqualifies them from being F&B.

LOL. If they were F&B they would.

Actions have consequences. You can't run a propaganda fake News channel and expect to get away with it.

Are you saying the press don't have to abide by certain rules?

Can a political party have its own propaganda channel that calls itself a News channel?

All you did was post one example but you forgot to go looking for examples where they do edit out the stuff they don't want to show. Instead of checking to see if I was correct you poured your heart into trying to prove me wrong and in the end you never even got close. You failed but then again mediocrity has been your MO from day one.
