That's why they call it Fox News, isn't it?

Experience is a series of non-fatal mistakes


Disarming is a mistake free people only get to make once...

True. Which do you see as being most tainted?

I am so sick of the news media that instead of watching them I watch cartoons they make more sense

It is better to trust the Lord, than put your confidence in man
If we ever forget we are one nation under God, then we will be one nation gone under.

More and more people are turning off Teevee and getting their news and entertainment from the WWW.That way they can pick and choose what they want to hear and see.With the boob tube you have little choice.Fox, I think is as close to real news politically as the others, but they are also slanted in their views. Early on they were pushing Cruz in their commentary,but switched to Trump when they saw the surge he was making. They are good at doing what it takes to boost their ratings.Men like the eye candy on Fox.Playboy channel would serve better in this department,but the wives would balk and would punish their men for watching it.They can get by with it on Fox. Why would any man watch a liberal Rachael (I wish I was a man)Madcow over a (I like being a good looking liberal) Megan Kelly?

I watch Fox online and get to select the content, and filter out the BS.Men, generally make better journalist as they don't let emotions rule, so I listen to men more on radio and watch the eye candy on the tube.Fox rule in this department! :-)

I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!

Gang, what you are watching is NOT news, it is JOURNALISM. It is "news" with the opinions of the broadcasters tacked on as they see relevant to sway the public opinion.
Frankly, I'm not sure a true news source exists anymore.

If America was really interested in truth, we'd have fact-based verifiable news. The market follows the consumer, not the other way around.
