Afaik Ms. Aguilera divorced Mr. Batman years ago. I feel sad that I have forgone television entirely but still caught that. Guess the p***s balloons had a say in it.

...What?
How come the wordfilter censors my Latin. An outrage.

What was yur first comment about? You mentioned Ms. Aguilera or something?

Yes, the Judeo-Christina affair. Personally I found the choice of words a little too Stormfront for my tastes but I got the gist of it.

Oh....

Fox News really ought to be shut down.

You can't shut people up just because you don't like what they say


Oh, I more than don't like what they say.

(1) As already been pointed out by others, people who watch Fox News become less informed than people who don't watch news at all. That means Fox News puts out negative information. Which is to say, entropy.

(2) Fox News isn't putting out a mistaken view it genuinely believes. Fox News puts out lies and bullshit.

(3) Fox News, by putting out entropy, lies and bullshit disempowers millions of people and empowers a few crazy rich ********.

So, since Fox News puts out entropy, lies, bullshit, and disempowers the masses, where the ******** does free speech come in?

They suffered a certain loss of credibility regarding their projections about Romney winning the popular vote, if not taking the whole election in a landslide. Laid things pretty bare, for the less hardl-line element.

I am in agreement with you. In just about every instance those who criticize Fox News have never even sat down and watched even a few seconds of it before. If they did they would see that they always features both conservative and liberal speakers. It only seems right-wing because all of the other news stations out there are so far to the left, where instead of a conservative and a liberal you get liberal and even more liberal. There is a reason Fox News is the most watched and trusted cable news station in America. Because it reflects the views of the average American. It shows the stories the "mainstream" media outlets will not cover, including major events. It provides a balance of both sides for greater perspectives. Stations like MSNBC though only reflect the fringe views of people living in New York City and San Francisco, the isolated bastions of liberalism within a country dominated by rural conservatism and suburban moderation. The people on MSNBC and other "mainstream" media outlets take an elitist view that their liberal beliefs are superior and that the rest of us not living in of those big cities are ignorant and backwards and need government, and their liberal orthodoxy to save us from ourselves.

Aside from Bob Beckel, who?

Also, like MSNBC does in reverse, they stack the deck. 3 conservatives to one liberal does not equal balance, assuming that a particular debate even involves one.

No different than Fox does with rural conservative values. Anyone not in lockstep with the neo-con philosophy hates America. Or worse.

if the average American thinks that "Lesbian street gangs are taking over DC" and "Mass Effect has hardcore pornography!" then even my rural a** has no interest in what the average American's opinion is.

I watch Fox News, and I can say that its about half-and-half. Most of the shows on FNC are pretty average, and have no agenda to them. Fox News does include liberals, but often enough on pundit shows such as Hannity, they are not treated fairly; the conservative host and second conservative guest simply gang up on the liberal one. And no, I'm not saying that's any beter than MSNBC, where the opposite is taking place, but it does need to be mentioned

Wait, wait, hold on, when did they mention Lesbian Street Gangs and Mass Effect being pornographic?

I agree. Most of the shows are covering news by the hour with commentary later on in the evening. And most of the panels during the news hours usually are fairly balanced with the someone from each side debating the issues with the moderators asking questions. Well in that scenario it is not surprising that the liberal guest would be ganged up on. Though ironic since for every liberal in America there are two conservatives. 40% of the population conservative, 20% liberal, and the rest moderate. But my point is on what other news station are you even going to find a conservative given his/her own pundit program? Fox News only has Hannity now that Beck is gone. But I know that MSNBC has Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and others who are far left and out of the American mainstream. Though I personally cannot say I watch Hannity that much. I typically watch Special Report at 6 PM and O'Reilly at 8 PM to catch up on my news for the day.
