There are many people I respect on here, so it seems very odd to me when they go so off base with critiques on their own writings.
"Two-thirds of core Fox News viewers identify themselves as Republican, and 94% either identify as or lean Republican." (Gallup)
Fair and balance?
What do we call someone who moans about “hyperbolic ad hominem rants,” then, a scant 11 minutes later, calls others “just bomb throwing morons”?
Do you think it is wrong to employ "hyperbolic ad hominem rants"?
And since you admit that Fox "leans right," I guess we agree that Fox isn't "fair and balanced."
You say I deflect if I bring up cbs fraudulent reporting of a supposed news story, yet you claim Fox reported the Obama was not born in the US..and that is not deflection. Please show me where fox reported that as fact, I can show where CBS reported it as such
Don't take that as an insult, it was not meant that way. I don't dislike you and figure we would have some laughs over a beer somewhere, that is why you frustrate me so, there are others on here that are just bomb throwing morons and they KNOW who they are, I don't consider you one of them but you are absolutely unable to get past the knee jerk reaction to anything conservative or so it seems to me.
It seems to me you cannot get past the way you FEEL about things to be able to articulate WHY and provide solid evidence that it is indeed the case.
THATS BS. but you are consistent with your straw men. I have often attempted to get you to DEBATE why I on the right am somehow against you on the LEFT, you will never do it. You engage in hyperbolic ad hominem rants that shed no light on anything, The door is always open if you wish to discuss FACTS and why I am so wrong.
"Fox leans right, NBC,MSNBC, CNN NPR ABC and CBS lean LEFT. Sounds fair."
Lets be fair and acknowledge that if someone or some group doesn't tow the entire rightwing party line and adhere to it rigidly then its considered left wing.
"remember when Fox presented a faked document showing the president had lied about his National Guard service oh wait that was CBS"
Sorry deflecting isn't going to work on this topic.
Its a pretty hard truth that is being demonstrated when you have to have a law thrown out in order to broadcast your "fair and balanced" "news" the way you want.
And no less than a law that forbids false and misleading reporting.
I wish Obama would push for a law like that in this nation.
Can you imagine the outrage the right would vomit forth! HAHAHAHA LOL!
It'd be so fun counter that outrage with a simple question.
If you're not gonna lie then why you so mad bro?
Fox leans right, NBC,MSNBC, CNN NPR ABC and CBS lean LEFT. Sounds fair.

He didn't say anything about Fox News being banned but that Canada was trying to make sure their news agencies keep to the facts.
"Canada's Radio Act requires that "a licenser may not broadcast....any false or misleading news." The provision has kept Fox News and right wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom."" (Huffington post)
So it isn't that they ban Fox News but any news organization that behaves in a manner not consistent with their regulations.
And Fox News is the freaking epicenter of that crap.
LOL! Just go dig into why they were trying to get a law in Canada that deals with only allowing factual reporting in the news media thrown out.
They wanted to take their brand of cesspool "journalism" up north and thankfully the Canadians are smarter than that.
At least some of them.
"There must be a reason fox has such a following other than we are all knuckle dragging mouth breathers who don't know any better"
Just because something or someone has a larger following doesn't make it more right or better than something or someone else.
I mean how many batchit insane comments and "facts" have we seen the right throw out into the wind since Obama took office?
How many of those held up under scrutiny?
Why did they achieve a high level of acceptance among the right?
Thats easy! No one questioned those facts.
They take it at face value and run wild with it! LOL!
Example? The whole Obama Birth Certificate thing.
When faced with proof. Well the proof was found not acceptable.
But thats to be expected from intellectually dishonest people.
They got their position and will not cede that position under any circumstances.
The only reason they quite down about a topic is that they look for new ways of slinging mud.
Lol...no. Sadly, true jounralism isn't around as much as it used to be. Most major news networks have a entertainment aspect to it.
By what book do you refer and again, msnbc conservative?
I'm always wary of justification through numbers. Entertainment (even in the news) will always get higher ratings than by-the-book news coverage. Fox does a good job in adding a bit of panem et circenses to their news.
Fox does have "liberals" on their shows but the quality of liberals I question sometimes. Take The Five cast. Is there any doubt that it is a 4 to 1 ratio on that show with Beckle being the only somewhat liberal perspective? Hannity and O'Reilly might have liberally minded people on those shows but they have a bad habit of yelling them down. That and with Hannity, he doesn't always go one on one with the liberal but also has a fellow conservative on ther to make it 2 against 1.
There must be a reason fox has such a following other than we are all knuckle dragging mouth breathers who don't know any better
