Silly Man: "Fox News Channel" is where the news is, if it were not, would the word "news" be in their name??

Of course not.

I get it, and folks wonder why I just stick to online news. To a great degree it is pointless to use cable T.V.

 

Anyways it's just a rehash of the news that I have already read, but this being Washington D.C., some of the news is not news till some one tells the news media where to look. <~~~~ <Hint Politics>.

FOX is was and always will be, well on the surface anyway, an ENTERTAINMENT company. I want to know where the best online news is. PLEASE HELP US.

 

Where do you read and view current World news feeds from truth seeking Journalists that aren't missinformed manipulated irrationally biased or and without proof?

It really depends on who you ask because the Repubs are perpetually bemoaning the "liberally-biased media" but on the other hand they condone, strongly, the most biased "news" (and I use that term very, VERY loosely)out there: Fox.

Fox News is fair and balanced between the two political parties the same way Louis Farrakhan is fair and balanced toward white people.

As a cable news network? They are a refreshing breath of air. I didn't know about them until the democrats started to complain about them.

Also, it is not only "fair" it is also "balanced."

Here is a great example of the quality of Fox News.

 

Statement from Glenn

 

May 28, 2010 - 14:25 ET

In discussing how President Obama uses children to shield himself from criticism, I broke my own rule about leaving kids out of political debates. The children of public figures should be left on the sidelines. It was a stupid mistake and I apologize--and as a dad I should have known better.

 

http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/198/41247/

 

Here is what the moron said:

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy? Daddy? Daddy, did you plug the hole yet? Daddy?

 

PAT GRAY (co-host): (imitating Obama) No I didn't, honey.

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy, I know you're better than [unintelligible]

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Mm-hmm, big country.

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) And I was wondering if you've plugged that hole yet.

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Honey, not yet.

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) Why not, daddy? But daddy—

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Not time yet, honey. Hasn't done enough damage.

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy?

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Not enough damage yet, honey.

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy?

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yeah?

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) Why do you hate black people so much?

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) I'm part white, honey.

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) What?

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) What?

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) What'd you say?

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Excuse me?

 

BECK: (laughing) This is such a ridiculous — this is such a ridiculous thing that his daughter— (imitating Malia) Daddy?

 

GRAY: It's so stupid.

 

BECK: How old is his daughter? Like, thirteen?

 

GRAY: Well, one of them's, I think, thirteen, one's eleven, or something.

 

BECK: "Did you plug the hole yet, daddy?" Is that's their — that's the level of their education, that they're coming to — they're coming to daddy and saying 'Daddy, did you plug the hole yet?' " Plug the hole!

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yes, I was doing some deep-sea diving yesterday, and—

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy?

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yeah, mm-hmm, mm-hmm, I was doing—

 

BECK: (imitating Malia) Why—

 

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yeah, honey, I'm—

 

BECK (imitating Malia) Why, why, why, why, do you still let the polar bears die? Daddy, why do you still let Sarah Palin destroy the environment? Why are — Daddy, why don't you just put her in some sort of a camp?
