    Not shocking at all...

    FOXLEAKS: Fox Caught Scripting Socialism Attack | Media Matters for America

    "Isn't that what they do in socialist countries?"

    Steve Doocy's question sounded like a spontaneous reaction to what he apparently saw as the threat Barack Obama would pose to freedom of the press.

    It wasn't.

    The Fox News host's inflammatory question had, in fact, been scripted the night before in an email sent by a Fox producer.

    HD, if your goal is to show "look how bad these righties are..." with all your right-attacking threads, then you're doing yourself a disservice...because the left is just as bad as the right...and that's a fact, not an opinion.

    Ummmmm....

    then prove it.

    I can show you countless top down talking points echoed by robots on FOX then screamed by lemmings in talk radio, on FOX's 'news broadcasts', bloggers, and by those in this forum.

    this thread's basic theme isnt new to this forum, or to most people who understand the FOX brand.


    show me the memo from the heads of the liberal media that spews all of the left wing talking points that then get echoed by pundits, papers and websites....

    You missed my point...which is that democrat/liberal is no better or worse then republican/conservative...that was the FACT I was pointing out.

    You do know this, don't you HD?

    Who would have thought Fox of all stations, with its fair and balanced reporting, would engage in these sorts of unprofessional premeditated attacks!

    I guess....

    but thats a weak response to the allegation that MOST right wing talking heads, bloggers, and writers get their "Marching Orders" from a single source.

    Its quite funny when people who are told what to think, write and say start accusing other people of being "Marxists"

    Apparently no one in here ever heard of "Journolist" I guess.

    Wake me when a news reporter, agency, channel, outlet, paper, mag, blog, etc doesn't have some scripted, slanted, biased, agenda driven, whatever within it's structure.

    This is hardly analogous to Journolist.

    Fox did the same thing with global warming and the public option. Hence why everyone with a brain sees them for what they are.

    If "Left Wing Obama Media" would give us both sides of a story and if they would tell us all the news not just what they want us to hear we wouldn't need Fox News, God Damn Fools are their own worst enemy everything NBC & CBS trys to hide from us Fox Tells Us.

    Liberals hate Fox because Fox tells us everything the liberals don't want us to know.

    When a major media outlet started their prime time news program with a report presenting knowingly forged documents accusing a sitting President of having been AWOL, it wasn't on Fox News.

    An awful lot of careers ended that day, but not the man who was the subject of those false reports.

    You wouldn't imagine how low the left will go to silence those people whom they disagree with.

    No one on the left has ever heard of Journolist because the moonbats protect their own. Arguably one of the most shocking examples of widespread unethical behavior in the entire industry and nary a peep to be told about it.

    Nobody destroyed the liberal global warming agenda more than mother nature who has pretty much laughed in the face of those trying to tell us we're all getting warmer.

    Yup! Sure has been an unusually warm January! Oh wait, I forgot. When it's warm, that proves global warming. And when it's cold, that proves global warming too. :rolleyes:

    How is Journolist an counterexample? Most journalists are journalists and don't have hidden agenda. I have good liberal friend who works for a very conservative media outlet as a journalist, and all she does is report the news. It's one thing when pundits like Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Stewart, etc. slant their stories because that's their job. It's quite another thing what Fox does with the news. News is supposed to be news and as free of bias as possible. While there are certainly historic examples of liberals and conservatives engaged in biased journalism, it's rare to see a network engage in such activities in so blantant and consistent a manner. Right now, Fox News appears to be alone in this regard, but it has a lot of apologists. The good news is that Fox News seems to be starting to lose credibility:

    Anyone but me ever notice that no matter what the situation, Patters always has a nice little anecdote about a "good friend" that entirely supports whatever left wing point he is trying to make?

    Patters, you're not fooling anyone. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
