    Re: Sayonara, FOX "News" (let's hope)

    I started the thread, I titled it. And the "Sayonara, let's hope" was in reference to FOX being a propaganda outfit, not a partisan comment. They're FAUX news because they lie, not because they're conservative. Walter Cronkite has been spinning in his grave for some time, I'm sure. FOX is not, and has never been, a news station.

    James, you make it a partisan issue when you accuse the left of being happy that Fox news may go bye bye.. I don't know if it will or won't and frankly I don't care if it does or doesn't.. I do care about the almost constant stream of lies and misinformation that comes from their network.. Frankly I am suprised so many right wingers give them a pass on that.. I mean seriously.. There was never any death panels in Obama care.. Yet they were constantly on the air talking about it.. So which is it?? Are going to claim that conservatives were to stupid to know the truth or approve of lying to the american people for political gain.. I can flood this forum with video after video of Fox news lying..

    I don't want them to disappear.. I just want them to change their slogan from 'fair and balance' to 'Honest and Accurate'.. Bipartisan would also be nice.. No more free air time to republican candidates..

    They lie?As there are many reporters and commentators on Fox News, which one of them is the 'liar', and what was that lie.

    Don't you realize that when you make these accusations that you should have some proof to support what you say?

    I've been thinking about this for some time. And in my opinion the whole of the FOX board, including Murdoch, should be publicly humiliated, tortured, and put to death. It is the only proper response to canceling Firefly after like 14 episodes. That was one of the best modern day Sci-Fi shows! I hope they all burn in hell.

    I gotta tell ya - I've been a big sci-fi fan all my life... I read the raving reviews and outrage of Firefly being cancelled and watched 6 episodes on Netflix. Mediocre is how I'd describe it. Going from riding horses with 1870 six shooters on an alien planet to interstellar space, could just never get into it and I'm also a Western fan too. Sorry for you they cancelled it but for me, I didn't miss anything.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Actually, FoxNews argued in court that it has a right to lie

    Daily Kos: Fox News admits they lie and distort the news, so why so pissy?

    I don't really know what to tell you. Firefly is one of the (if not THE) best modern sci-fi shows of all time. This is known. It's frickin' Cowboys in space! There was nothing better than that show, and they canceled it just as River was gonna start going bad ass on the bad guys. The story was good, the characters completely engaging and compelling. There was nothing bad about that show.

    And if you only watched 6 episodes, you missed the (IMO) best one: Jaynestown, the seventh. And Heart of Gold (my second favorite) which they have a shoot out from a brothel.

    I don't know what to tell you. Not liking Firefly is like not liking freedom. If you're not with us, you're against us! HAHAHA. Just kidding, but I'm always surprised when someone claiming to like sci-fi does not like Firefly.

    I think you missed the setup, but that's not surprising.

    Its not interstellar space, its a big system with many habitable planets/moons.

    All were colonized, but many were "marginal", or being terraformed. Central planets were high tech, "frontier" planets less so. There was a civil war around control/exploitation of the frontier worlds.

    The beauty of the series was its potential.

    They had all the cowboy stories, all the pirate/shipping/smuggling stories plus all the ususal sci fi fare to go through before they ran out of stories.

    The chinese slang/swearing was one of my favorite aspects.

    Can't have anti-government rebels and saboteurs as heroes in an immediately post 9/11 world though, just wouldn't be prudent. Idiots.

    No, not from a disreputable website like Daily Kos, please.

    If you saw something on Fox News which was untrue you should report it in order to support your claim.

    And even if what Kos reported was true, does that substantiate your ludicrous claim "I'm sure. FOX is not, and has never been, a news station".

    It is a news station and, in fact, a very good one.

    No surprise that the usual suspects like this stuff.
