The Fox propaganda machine has gone into over-drive on attacking the OWS protesters.

Remember the Tea Bag protest? They promoted it 24/7. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Even promoted the song!!!</span>

Fox & Friends" debuts Tea Party Song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZLx1dcW0_Q)

Now, if that wasn't enough, they promoted the film!!!!!!!!!!!

Tea Party Movie on FOX Business Channel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTSAKpkys-A)

Fair and Balanced they are not , but here is where it gets interesting. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> FoxNews.com has one of its non-scientific polls asking if readers agree with Occupy Wall Street protesters' views on the economy. <u>Even though two of the three choices (besides "other") disparage the OWS protests,</u> <span style='font-size: 17pt'>the results are more than two-to-one in support.</span></div></div>

Ha. Most of the TP agree with the protesters.

Fact is, TP people were used as a diversion. Their displeasure was with Govt as a whole, but it was subtly shifted to 'Obama is the problem'.

Now the focus is on Wall St and they don't like it. Ailes has given the marching orders and now they all attack. "If you don't have facts, make stuff up" is the message.

If you still think Fox reports and you decide, you have the IQ of a boiled egg.

Yup, according to Steve Doocy, the protesters are downtown for smoked salmon and other free food. That is, when they’re not there to hide out from the law. But Gretchen Carlson kept it “fair and balanced” with her comment, after noting the “cherub face” of a child near those criminal protesters, “A lot of parents who are activists are bringing their children to these events, and they’re camping out with them and… I don’t know, leave it up to you what you think about that.” As she spoke, a banner on the lower third of the screen read, <u>“LAWBREAKERS AT PROTESTS.”</u>

Of course, you can find lots and lots of lawbreakers right there on Fox News but they're the "right" kind.

If their message appears anti-Dem or anti-Obama then you hate them, but if their message turns out to be not necessarily anti-government, but actually just against the way the Government has been run and the direction it has been headed for some time, then you rejoice. This is an example of your partisanship loud and clear.

I called those TP protesters stupid and dumb who were chanting "Taxed Enough Already" when they just got a tax cut! I still don't agree with 99% of what they believe.

The only example of partisanship here is your interpretation of my post. All I said was,
"Ha. Most of the TP agree with the protesters."

On this one issue, 65% agreed with the dissent being shown in Wall St. They also see that the 99% are being shafted by the elite and the Govt won't do anything about it.

The partisan part is where you pick and choose when you want to align yourself with the TPers.

AND the majority of Americans agree that the wealthy should get a tax hike! Polls show sixty to sevventy percent.

Tea Party nutjobs, are against taxes, anny taxes, they think that they don't need governmennt to do a damn thing, untill they're floating in a flood, or facing a huge fire, or watching the oil roll up on their shores, then, suddently, they're sctreaming for the Feds...but STILL against taxes, /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif
hence, the one in five Americans who call themselves Repiglicans, (If there are still that many) do not represent the majority of Americans, who are for the tax khike for billionaires and millionaires....

Ed ignores the TP song and film promotion.

How does Fox treat a real grass-roots event?
