I thought it would be funny to see them with their panties all in a wade. They didn't disappointed.

I caught a good bit of Hannity who had the words "Universal Nightmare" plastered everywhere as well as scrolling over Sarah Palin's head. He also had 2 people on to discuss the health care bill. One was a republican the other was a former democrat pollster who clearly didn't like democrats or the bill.

Hannity also took Al Sharpton completely out of context and made it sound like Sharpton was calling Obama a socialist.

Cavuto had Jeb Bush on and of course neither liked the bill and I watched a bit of the O'Reilly factor. Although i find Bill very arrogant he isn't as much of a far right wacko as most people on Fox.

I don't know how anyone can deny that Fox News is nothing more than propaganda spewing channel for the far right.

When the bill passed, I quickly switched it over to FOX news to see what I'd be hearing the next day from people. My husband went to the FOX news website - what he saw was even better.

MSNBC/FOX are yings and yangs. If no one can see that I give up.

You saw what you wanted to see, then. I saw a little of O'Reilly and Hannity and both seemed serene and calm about the situation. They know where their bread is buttered.

I caught a good bit of Hannity who had the words "Universal Nightmare" plastered everywhere as well as scrolling over Sarah Palin's head. He also had 2 people on to discuss the health care bill. One was a republican the other was a former democrat pollster who clearly didn't like democrats or the bill.


He had done that since the beginning. And the former democratic pollster still says plainly that he wants his party to wisen up and still objects whenever Hannity or someone else on there misrepresents him.

Hannity also took Al Sharpton completely out of context and made it sound like Sharpton was calling Obama a socialist.


Sharpton said America voted for socialism. That's what he said.

Cavuto had Jeb Bush on and of course neither liked the bill and I watched a bit of the O'Reilly factor. Although i find Bill very arrogant he isn't as much of a far right wacko as most people of the others on Fox.


O'Reilly argues with every guest he has on, left or right. Any time someone tries to say Obama is dumb he cuts them off at the pass.

I don't know how anyone can deny that Fox News is nothing more than propaganda spewing channel for the far right.


The far right would be the John Birch society. Fox is no further right than MSNBC is left, probably less so. And if you pay attention you'll see that CNN has started creeping further and further to the right.

You know, I would love to the age and occupations of these folks. I bet NONE own their own business or even run one.

I don't typically watch cable news but i did turn it to MSNBC last night. There coverage wasn't super negative like Fox's but they definitely were not super joyful either. MSNBC didn't take their coverage the level that Fox News did.

I didn't see "Obama is Jesus" or "Universal Euphoria" or anything of the sort scrolling above some democrats head that they were interviewing. I didn't hear them say the world is a better place and freedom had a big victory today. They just didn't take it to the extremes the fox did.

Right. Now imagine had the bill NOT passed? They would have trotted out every Tea Party vid they could find and who knows.

My point. They are two sides of the same coin. They preach to the choir each and every night.

I remember seeing Obama is the most pro-abortion president ever scrolled across the screen

No he didn't. He said, "If this is socialism, “then the American public overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they voted for Barack Obama,”


Sharpton was using the label facetiously to make a point. You can actually tell from the clip Hannity uses what Sharpton is really saying but Hannity jumps in quickly and tells you what to think and you didn't catch it, you just listened to what Hannity told you to think.


Meat i suggest using your own brain to form your opinions and not just looking for someone else to tell you what to think. Fox News is bad for the brain.

Imagine? I should be able to turn on the channel and see it. Why imagine? They are on tv 24/7. I honestly don't give a jack crap about either party or side. But I've never seen MSNBC or any other news channel take it to the extreme that Fox does.

Hannity is a ******* troll.

I don't watch, but from what I have seen, O'Reilly isn't that bad. Seems to be fairly middle of the road actually.

Sure sounds like it to me. I didn't vote for Obama. My state voted overwhelmingly for McCain. The state just north of me barely voted for Obama. If you held the election today, Obama would lose in a landslide.

Obama won because he outspent McCain five to one. Imagine if those roles were reversed. But now, because Obama won, suddenly most of America wanted another entitlement program. Suddenly most of America wanted our President to apologize to the Arab world. Suddenly most of America wanted socialism. Blah blah blah. Nobody in the middle wanted any of this. They just wanted to stick out their middle finger to Bush. Obama rarely mentioned McCain's name without mentioning Bush's.

You're "middle?"

You who spend every waking moment on here complaining about Obama's choices of mustard and air of arrogance consider yourself middle?

hhahahahahahahhahaahahahahahahah
