LOL!!! Man, that's the funniest thing I've read all week! You're too much.



The media has vetted the Clinton's for the last 25 years, particularly Hillary. How often does and has Fox News vetted Republican's if you think your so fucking smart? :roll: Name 5 instances. I bet you can't even name 2 funny guy. :roll: :smurf:

It doesn't matter because here's the thing: All major media is controlled by 5 conglomerates. So when you say vetted, do you mean a) corporate media is hell-bent on reporting all political news whether good or bad for both federal parties? or b) corporate media takes their respective donations from the federal parties' business interests and only publishes news that those parties demand not to be leaked out?

So lets see, your baby bomber, TPP outsourcing democrat hero Obama is spending a trillion more dollars upgrading US nuclear weapons.

I'd be curious in hearing why do you think we need to spend a trillion taxpayer dollars more on upgrading US nuclear bombs...and why that should be a priority over all the other things we need.

With so many other pressing needs, we would like to hear why you think that's necessary.

I'll give you some help, I'll start it for ya:

FOX, NBC, ABC, CBS. The people at the top all live the same lifestyle. A very extravagant lifestyle. Are there pics of the houses owned by the highest paid NBC news execs and the houses owned by the highest paid FOX news execs? I bet you can't tell 'em apart.

When I was 14 years old I figured out that Donald Trump was untrustworthy.

Tiboudre, it's probably only one conglomerate if you could actually get right down to the bottom of it.

In my imagination these exec's are enemies by day and friends by night and, whilst in NYC they all live and, schedules permitting, party at Trump's

Here's Bill Moyers:

War & Peace

The Trillion Dollar Question the Media Have Neglected to Ask Presidential Candidates

The American people will be footing the bill — but, by and large, they haven't heard much about our country's planned trillion-dollar nuclear weapons upgrade.

Mar 21, 2016 - Although President Obama began his administration with a dramatic public ... This trillion-dollar nuclear weapons buildup has yet to inspire any ...

http://billmoyers.com/story/the-trillio ... andidates/

and 442, 000 other reports...

So now you're informed of your little trillion dollar bomber oversight....

So please fill in the blank for us:

No snow, subject changing, or distraction SPACEBOMBER, cuz we'll all notice you didn't answer the question:

We need to spend an additional trillion dollars upgrading US nuclear bombs because________________________________________________.

A) Like I said in earlier post, it doesn't matter.
B) You didn't answer my question on your definition of 'vetted'.
C) Your specific quote was "Democrats have always been thoroughly vetted by ALL of the media." There was no mention of Fox News specifically.

Yes, on paper it's 5, but in reality it is all one.

A) Apparently it does matter...to you.
B.1) We're obviously not discussing medicine for animals so figuring the definition shouldn't be too hard.
B.2) By asking me what "my" definition of "vetting" is, is a concession from you that I'm right.
C) Fox News is one of many in ALL media.


Bottom line....you couldn't come up with even one example of Fox News vetting Republican's...which is why instead of answering with an answer, you answered with questions.

I enjoy network news because, as a fan of F Zappa, I support behavoir modification. I also love to see people being forced to give in to peer pressure. I also like the idea of endless arguments about right and wrong. Those who insist on being right fascinate me because it's always the ones who are convinced they are right who do not commit the worst crimes against humanity.

I only wish there were more saints on tv such as the news anchors on Fox and CNN. I worship news anchors. As a fan of F Zappa, I think people should be forced to choose sides and provide examples that support their choices. I mean, Coke or Pepsi, bitches. Which is it gonna be? You can't have both and the difference between Coke and Pepsi is HUGE. It's a much larger difference than, say, the difference between Coke and water. Or a hot Big Mac and the sun.

Canada's Top Ten List of Americas Stupidity.

This is so sad; from a proud, strong country to a laughing stock of the world. Canadians Version of David Letterman’s Top 10. Just makes you want to shake your head in disbelief,
and, just maybe choke someone in charge. This is Canada's Top Ten List of Americas Stupidity. Of course we look like idiots-we are!


#10 Only in America ... could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate Obama campaign fund-raising event.

#09 Only in America ... could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly
20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black, 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans - 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to
Hispanics!

#08 Only in America ... could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the
Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher
taxes.

#07 Only in America ... can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

#06 Only in America ... could you collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it hasper year - for total spending of
$7 Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

#05 Only in America ... could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be called EXTREMISTS.

#04 Only in America … could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

#03 Only in America ... could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity
invested in a major U.S. Oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

#02 Only in America ... would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for
the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just magically become American citizens. (probably should be number one)

#01 Only in America .... could the rich people - who pay 86% of all income taxes - be
accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at all.

It's not easy to sit in an air conditioned studio, with 2 hours worth of make up on, reading a teleprompter.

Our brave men and women anchors deserve their high salaries because they work so very hard. There's no reason some assembly line hack with messy hair in some auto factory should live as well as the servants of the media. I'd like to see all the wonderful newspersons in the world get a pay increase once a week.


"America" is a word. It signifies the space in between lines on a map. Perspectives on "America" will depend heavily upon which space in the man made maze you come from.

I don't hate America , jimmie.
I just hate hypocrites like you in it.

Btw , the only people that seem to think anything on that list was debunked , are brainwashed people like you that would rather vote for a lying bitch than admit the ' other ' side might be right about her.

I'd argue with you, Pedro, but I have this certain policy. 8)

Fox News, Gretchen Carlson settling lawsuit

Image

21st Century Fox has agreed to a settlement with Gretchen Carlson, the anchorwoman who sued Roger Ailes alleging harassment and retaliation in July,

Ailes, the powerful Fox News CEO and chairman, resigned in the wake of the allegations, which he has continuously denied.

21st Century Fox, however, is acknowledging harm.

In a highly unusual public statement on Tuesday morning, the company said, "We sincerely regret and apologize for the fact that Gretchen was not treated with the respect that she and all our colleagues deserve."

According to Vanity Fair, Fox's settlement with Carlson is for $20 million. The magazine reports that Fox has also reached settlements with two other women who alleged harassment by Ailes.

In a statement of her own, Carlson said, "I am gratified that 21st Century Fox took decisive action after I filed my Complaint. I'm ready to move on to the next chapter of my life in which I will redouble my efforts to empower women in the workplace. I want to thank all the brave women who came forward to tell their own stories and the many people across the country who embraced and supported me in their #StandWithGretchen. All women deserve a dignified and respectful workplace in which talent, hard work and loyalty are recognized, revered and rewarded."

Greta Van Susteren leaving Fox News

Image

Greta Van Susteren, one of the top anchors on Fox News for the past decade, is leaving the cable news channel, effective immediately.

The stunning announcement was made by Fox News on Tuesday morning. No reason for her exit was given.
Van Susteren has been the host of the 7 p.m. hour, called "On the Record."

Former 6 p.m. host Brit Hume will take over the time slot temporarily.

"I am happy to take on this assignment for the balance of this extraordinary election," Hume said in a statement.

Van Susteren was not quoted in the statement.
