Leave it to Fox News to put something like this up, then make it an indictment of liberals. My favorite part is when it insinuates that marriage has been on a downward trend since the 50s when interracial marriage was legalized, now gay marriage, and what next? robot marriage!! And where? well this "PhD" recipient from the University of Phoenix says Massachusetts! and Why? because it's liberal!!.....congratulations Fox, you've outdone yourself. By the way, this article is a huge hit, everyone I know is forwarding it around. It honestly could be an Onion article word for word. Up next, "Doctor says Liberals will Start Feeding on Newborns By Year 2080." Awesome.
Well, a doctor with a PHD who happens to be a liberal DID say it... so...
All Fox does is report, it's up to you to decide, thats why millions of people watch Fox, they tell you all the things the Left Wing Media won't tell you.
Fox is just doing what it was created to do, report the news, "ALL OF IT"
Count me in if those female bots look like this one!
hahaha good one. More like They decide it for you and then drum it into your head until you're scared enough to do as your told. And millions of people have low IQs.
Where does it say he's a liberal lol? Oh I get it he believes in that silly thing called "science" therefore he must be a liberal.
When I first started watching Fox I used to watch NBC, after watching NBC I would go to Fox and wait for the same story to come up I couldn't believe the things that NBC left out and if the story was anywhere near anything favorable to Republicans or the Right Wing way of thinking there were many times NBC wouldn't even report it all.
I know Liberals don't want to acknowledge this but have you ever wondered why so many people all over the world "watch Fox"
Even the Left Wing Media now admits, "it's a whole new world" in the news business (we now get the whole story fair and balanced).
Do liberals really believe that NBC or Rodent Rather would have ever told us about "Monica"---------Drudge broke it.
There is no problem watching Fox HB, so long as you mix in some of the other channels to balance the perspectives out. I highly recommend different sources, with different views. You'll only be smarter for it.
FOX news .....(sigh)
Yesterday, I watched Family Guy on Fox. Stewy, the peculiar baby, recalled meeting Jesus Christ, and the scene cuts to a naked Jesus, covered discretely by soap foam, in the shower with Stewy staring at him. We then see Jesus from the waist up, rubbing the sponge against his chest in a clearly sensuous manner as the fresh water drips and removes the soap from his crotch. (We never actually see his crotch, of course) It was funny, but utterly perverse. One can only marvel at the utter hypocrisy of the religious right when it comes to Fox tv. Because their news is so right wing, the religious right allows them to mock Jesus as some sort of pervert, so treating some silly story about people marrying robots as news should come as no surprise.
Um, #1 you don't have cable, and so you don't know Fox News. #2, Fox News, Fox TV....
Why the hell didn't they do this 50 years ago, I'm to damn old for one now, I had a pillow I was in love with once, when we moved my wife threw it away, I never forgot it though.
People "all over the world" do not watch Fox News. They don't even get it.
And "it's a whole new world" means that Fox revolutionized the news by turning it into entertainment. They replaced journalism with whole slew of yapping heads that infuse their opinion into everything they "report." You can't even tell when your watching Fox News whether the person is a reporter or a pundit. So now the "liberal" outfits have followed suit in this ratings war/race to the bottom and have added all the Chris Matthews/Olbermann types to try and win over viewers. Fox doesn't give you the "facts" that NBC etc. leaves out, they simply make the administration's argument for them and try to convince people that they are learning something. Case in point: Tony Snow. Do you really see Hillary Clinton hiring Dan Rather as her press secretary? No because it's totally unprofessional and a complete conflict of interest. Tom Brokaw, for example, is a conservative but that doesn't mean that he needed to throw in conjecture and utter BS when he reads the news.
CNN et. al might be bad, and make assumptions that are based on what you would call "liberal" tendencies, but Fox News is just ridiculous. It's 23 1/2 hours a day of yelling and right wing opinion. It's all Corporate media, and none of it is any good, but Fox is not the same thing, and to pretend that it is simply an equal alternative to "liberal" news sources that do investigative research etc. is ludicrous and completely dishonest. And this country is full of complete idiots that think they are learning something by hearing Bill O'Reilly feed them their opinions every night. And this article is a perfect example of why they are a complete joke. All of their news is Rape, Rape, Terrorism, Rape, Child Abduction, Judges are too soft, Society's falling apart, Terrorism and now this: Robots! Not only are liberals out to destroy your precious family values by letting gays marry each other and legalizing interracial marriage so that people can make their own decisions free from big government (isn't tha what you're all about?) but now they're going to let the robots take over! This article is so ridiculous and transparent, it's exactly why Fox News is the laughing stock of the journalism world.
And your point about Monica is exactly my point. Is Monica important? is that the kind of issue that really deserves 24 hour coverage in a world where people are starving and there's war and civil strife and poverty etc.? No but leave it to Fox News to debase public discourse to the point where our leaders are impeached for a BJ, but it's totally unacceptable to question a President for starting a war that resulted in thousands of deaths by lying to the American people. Not to mention the slew of real scandals that Bush has been involved in. Leave it to Fox News to make our next election about Hillary's outfits or John Edwards' haircut or Howard Dean's scream rather than you know, silly things like their foreign policy or health care plans. Thanks Fox News, for really looking out for the American people!
Fox News and Fox TV are both owned by Murdoch, and the local Fox news is very right wing. Further more, I've been on enough business trips that I've watched a reasonable amount of cable in hotels. So, I've certainly seen Fox News. At any rate, not sure what that has to do with the apparent tolerance of by the religious right when Fox chooses to broadcast a cartoon in which Jesus is portrayed as a a pedophile. I'm not complaining about Fox here, but about the hypocrisy of the religious right.
Now here's where we agree. Problem is that the majority of Fox News' audience watches only Fox News. This is made apparent by the fact that Fox News' ratings are higher during Presidential debates than are the actual debates. Which means either: a)people don't know the debates are going on or b) they'd rather hear Fox heads tell them what to think about Presidential candidates than listen to the actual candidates give their own views. Either possibility is a tragic indictment of the state of American discourse and the Fox News audience. Even though I think Republicans are slimy, hypocritical corporate tools, I would never sit there and watch Chris Matthews tell me about them while they are on another channel actually debating important issues. And according to the ratings, neither would most "liberal" viewers.
Dumb as a fox.
Oh please. As if anyone in those countries watches Fox News. It's technically available on some satellite services in 40 countries (most of which are absolute no-name countries) I'd love to see the ratings that Fox News gets compared to other news services in those countries; it must be laughable. It kind of reminds me of the "coalition of the willing" lol. And nice selective nit picking of my post, I guess you really do get your cues from Fox News.
If that happens to work out for you, whatever you do, don't run your wife on Windows. Sure, her right hand might be able to turn into a clothes iron or a Philip's-headed screwdriver; but it can also turn into a deadly Flame-Thrower. Even Vista isn't to be trusted with that kind of responsibility.
Man, the sheep just keep multiplying in this country. No wonder we're sinking faster than the Titanic.
This Time Bill O'Reilly Got It Right
Published: September 19, 2004
IF a stopped clock is right twice a day, why shouldn't Bill O'Reilly be right at least once in a blue moon? When Fox News's most self-infatuated star attacked CNN for keeping James Carville and Paul Begala as hosts on "Crossfire" after they had joined the Kerry campaign, he fingered yet another symptom of the decline and fall of the American news culture. "In the wake of the vicious attacks on Fox News for allegedly being `G.O.P. TV,' I expected the media to brutally dismember CNN and the new boys on John Kerry's bus," Mr. O'Reilly wrote in his syndicated column. "But instead it's been the silence of the lambs from the press. Can you say media bias?"
Very right wing according to ultra partisan, uber liberal, nonobjective Patters. OK man!
The TV channel and the news are separate entities. I didn't see the cartoon, and if it was anti-jesus as you claim, and Fox TV is ultra right wing Jesus Freak, then why would they show it? Wouldn't their showing some perverse, Jesus is a pedophile cartoon actually show the opposite? Hmmm....
You people are comical. Do you watch Fox News regularly? Do you tune into any specific show when you do watch? How many sheep in here do you think don't watch Fox News much the same way you blast others for only watching? Baaaaa..... It's amazing how some sheep view other sheep. don't they know they're both just looking in the mirror, only from the other side? There are countless posters in here who blast Fox much the same way you do, and refuse to watch it. You are criticizinh "slimy" republicans for doing exactly what most democrats do. Ah, but I know, objective, tolerant, open minded lefties would never do something like that.
FYI, the two shows I watch the most are BOR & Mattews, with some Wolf/Dobbs/Cooper mixed in.
So what is your point exactly. I'm dumb so please bear with me. What does the international audience have to do with anything?
Screwdriver? Iron? Dang, I was thinking more along the lines of a whip, some handcuffs, and maybe one of those strings with the little bal...nevermind.
Yeah, it does show the opposite. I guess Fox figures that the they'll corner the right-wing market on news and a very different market with their cartoons. Again, I'm commenting on the hypocrisy of the religious right, not on the Fox. I'm glad they bash Christian fundamentalists. I really am. And I think the reason they get away with it is because they have their news station as cover. If CBS ran the cartoon, which I described honestly, I guarantee you'd have Republicans in Congress calling for a formal rebuke.
your kidding right? You said Fox was "viewed all over the world" insinuating that it's not just the nationalistic diatribe that it is....
Did you even read what I wrote? Talk about a sheep. All your doing right now is responding to an argument you want me to be making which is some kind of Knee-jerk Democrat CNN party line BS. I NEVER SAID I WATCH CNN, ABC, CBS or any of that. That's why I said it was all corporate garbage. Only a sheep would think that the choice is between CNN or Fox, Liberal or Conservative, Democrat or Republican, Coke or Pepsi. It's all just corporations feeding you drivel and getting you worked up about issues that do not matter such as Flag Burning, abortion blah blah blah. My whol point was that Fox is the absolute worst of this, and CNN is terrible too. But as your quote before shows, Fox started this race to the bottom. Your so stuck in this two party, fake democracy, artificial choice system that you probably believe that somehow your not a sheep by waving the flag nonstop and saying "America! F Yeah!!" my what an independent, critical thinker you are. And your Frank Rich article up there only reiterates what I'm saying, it's all corporate watered down, agenda driven business, and CNN and all the others have devolved into following Fox News ratings bonanza by replacing News with entertainment. Whether you watch Fox or CNN, it doesn't matter, the corporations still win, which is why they donate almost equally to both Democrat and Republican Presidential candidates. Fox is the leader in the ratings, and thus has an extreme amount of power in shaping peoples opinions in this country, and that's why it scares and bothers me more than any other networks. It's the most blatant and powerful propaganda tool in America. Now call me a Communist because that's easier than actually discussing things. I'm a Communist, no I'm a sheep, Communist, Sheep, Communist, Sheep......
