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

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






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.
