    I don't understand why liberals continue to dimiss EVERYTHING Fox News reports other than to deny the truth. They have been caught on numerous ocassions being fair or just plain telling the truth about various reports. How many times will they have to tell the truth before you start at least considering what they have to say.

    I especially liked one 'source' - a woman who was hired from a homeless shelter, was sent to protest, was sent to canvass for money on Long Island, AND THEN was in the loop, knowing exactly where the money was spent - to pay for all of it, for supplies, food, transportation, salaries, for everything ... all that money is going to pay for the protests downtown...

    Sure was a quick rise from the street to the board room...

    It only takes a few lies and slants to make me doubt everything else said without a corraborating report from an different source. I don't take the word of a liar and run with it. Fox has already shown great bias against ACORN and a willingness to go directly to air and print will a dishonest report against them and then reluctance to recant that false report.

    How many times did they air completely nonsensical reports about Obama's place of birth not being Hawaii? I mean seriously, it's just plain stupid to trust their word on anything.

    They have also been caught on numerous occasions just plain making sh*t up and/or distorting the truth beyond all recognition. They are blatantly partisan and as such they are not a reliable source -- any more than MSNBC is a reliable source.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    So has Dan Rather at CBS, CNN has presented some obvious bull****, Jambalaya is right, they all do it. The Fox news hatred is the stupidest thing I've ever seen, they are a center right version of the news practice, the other organizations do the exact same thing.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I don't!

    The lamesstream media is going to ignore this story for as long as they can. CNN and PMSNBC are supporteres of the occupiers and foaming at the mouth, waiting for a KIA, so they can blow things up.

    According to your apparent definition, any rally or protest concerning any issue IS a political rally.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ...
