Sort of how I feel when I see one thing on the local news and another in real life, same could be said about the 'Salant' quote.

The one sided Fox news is giving a 'play down' air about Iraq. Like they're holding hands over there, running in a circle singing. I watch what comes from the generals' mouth. In 2002, genl Zinni was hired by the pentagon to look at the inside info that Bush and Cheney/Halliburton and Rummy were viewing. The clip showed him getting a medal of honor from Cheney and then Cheney walked over to the mike and stated, 'without a doubt, Saddam has WMD and will use them on the US'. Genl Zinni was appauded and said there was 'no' evidence of WMD. He was there.

How old IS the New York Times? Keith Olberman: Direct descendant of Uri Olberman - editor of the "Revolutionary Review." Chris Matthews: Direct descendant of Thomas Matthews - publisher of that "fine work of bias print" Ha Ha Ha We are in trouble with the dumbing down of America. The media will be our demise.

He who stated that Fox news is one sided is so wrong. Its one of the only fair and balanced news agency left. Every issue is debated from a representative from both political parties and let's you make your own decision.Watch Kelly & Bob in the morning. Of course they have room for improvement but the other 75% of the news agencies in the US with their clear Liberal view is so obvious that I can bearly stand it! We all know that the Liberals control the media and they use this as a conduit to promote their values and agenda. It's unfortunate that so many have to drink this kool aid and aren't able to see the real story. Report the story and don't convolute our decision making process. Expose all political corruption not just the party you appose. Let me leave you with one more qoute. " A People that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both."

And the pandering to the puppeteers. statist theologians, and other brain washing malefactors as exist continues to grow in an ever darkening way.

More of the unlimited wisdom as handed down to us by the Founders. True then, even truer now.
 -- J Carlton, Calgary
 
Fox news gets closer to the truth than CBS, CNN,NBC, ABC or any of the major news sources that are all sold out to Obama.

Right Jim. Don't forget MSLSD, The New York Slimes, and The Washington Compost.

Ted Miles and liberals like him, only know one thing- "DEFLECT" so you don't have to admit any truth. Any time something is brought up about CURRENT EVENTS liberals can only deflect to change the subject so they won't have to FACE the TRUTH!
 -- Diana, Decatur USA
 
Thomas Jefferson's statement again displays his astounding wisdom!
 -- Mary - MI
 
Thomas Jefferson was an honest and pragmatic observer of the human foibles and corruption of his times. What a pity that people of his character and wisdom are shut out of the major media today. Alas, the lemmings are marching to their socialist utopia, ala USSR.
 -- Bill B., Wellington, FL
