    Yes that is why I am so afraid of the Fox phenomenon of a politically orchestrated news medai. Propaganda is the stuff of political parties, it should not be the stuff of news media, at least not as blatant is on Fox.

    Waffler, you are a dishonest parrot without an original thought with no concept of what a government of law, liberty, or freedom is or means. Those supporting democracy, socialism, and all other forms of leftist tyranny have their ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, cable, and the vast majority of the rest of the government media complex propagandists to give them the warm and fuzzies, why are you disparaging the rightest's only real option. Fox relays 'NEWS' the others won't. Our Republic died when the press became the fourth branch of government (the PR branch, the governmental multi-media complex, the originator and supporter of despotic propaganda, etc.)

    Fox is the only network that is even close to reporting news, The rest are tools and supporters of all the Liberal craziness perpetrated by the government.

    It's bad enough that today's 'mainstream' press has gone so sycophantically to the left that even FOX and a few 'conservative' talk radio hosts must fight to keep their 'presses' going. 'News' is simply propaganda designed to condition us, not enlighten us. Thankfully, the Internet has given these hijacked institutions a run for their money. The only thing seen/heard from TV is what the networks get PAID to broadcast. They are beholden to their advertisers and their profit margin. Time and Newsweek magazines are getting thinner and thinner and their content more to the left than ever -- it's good to know that the people are not buying it! I like a diversity of opinions and a limit to how much they can be foisted upon the rest of us. Democrats used to be the safe haven for dissidents, but we see now that when they have the upper hand, no dissidence is allowed.

    Truer words were never spoken. The media should hang their collective heads in shame. They will have to answer for their dereliction of duty. Every one of them should do jail time for the damage they have done to this country.

    The crypto-propagandists of the Fifth Column that is the contemporary American Fourth Estate want more nearly desperately for probity, moral authority, integrity, gravity and credibility than did their never other than under State duress Soviet era Pravda and Izvestia counterparts.

    How wonderful it is to see Our corrupt govt crumbling along with MSM's spent integrity! The sooner the righties awaken fully to realise FAUX NEWS is simply controlled MSM for right-wing dupes, THE SOONER WE WILL BE ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD ON PROSECUTING Bushes, Clintons, Hussein-Obama, and all Our other derelict swamp traitors.

    Main Stream Media and Our District of Criminals, are now nothing more than vestigial in-your-face insults heaped upon decades of duplicitous tyrannic injury; at least We Patriots have the consolation of alert vigilance, as the masses of lost bewildered allowed themselves to be sucked-in by the glittery lies.

    Waffler above, is an excellent example of whom I speak, denying free speech is the bastion of the crooked left because illicit lefty positions cannot withstand scrutiny of unbridled inspection balanced against known Truths. Waffling lefties decry Faux, and anything else conservative, that strays from the democrat plantation compendium.
