    Are you now claiming Fox News is factually inaccurate? If so, that means we can never use them. Is that your position?

    I think that the Duck Dynasty fan base believes that the everyone in the show acts the same way in real life.

    And I never heard of the show Justified until you mentioned it.

    BTW Phil Robertson did not invent the double reed duck call. The call was invented in 1957 by a couple Texans. Secrets of the Call Makers

    Too often reality is an illusion, and truth just something you heard.

    No, but they didn't give anything different from the first article in LATimes either...They reported that there was an unnamed source "familiar with these things" {paraphrasing} and that is no more reliable for you to make absolute statements, than me saying something...

    Your just reaching here. You got caught making an absolute claim, and you can't back it up, now you are wildly throwing anything you can against the wall to get out of backing it up, or saying that you shouldn't have made the claim. That is just hilarious, given your prior pompous, arrogant attitude concerning matters like this when stances are switched.

    BTW, Got that contract clause yet?

    Yes, Emmett Till was one of those happy people who lost his life for the horrible crime of flirting or touching a white woman.

    Or all the other blacks who were killed, beaten or abused by member of the KKK or other hateful whites. And yes, it is incredibly difficult to believe that in a part of the US in which you could get lynched for whistling at a white woman blacks were "happy".

    Why do you say that? Have you polled all 14 million of them? Or is it that you think that people that watch that show are just that dumb?

    And I never heard of the show Justified until you mentioned it.
    Pretty good show....Based in the Cumberland region of KY. But it is fiction, just like DD, just like everything you watch on tv. It's entertainment. I am sure there is someone that liked Dukes of Hazard too when it was on, I personally thought it insulted intelligence.

    BTW Phil Robertson did not invent the double reed duck call. The call was invented in 1957 by a couple Texans.
    So what? He made a successful business out of producing them, and then made millions more signing a deal to do a show. Are you mad that he is successful?

    Jesus Christ! Why do you liberals have to always conflate something to the extreme. It's pathetic.

    Now some real simple questions for you to answer

    1. Do you have proof that Phil knew of, or participated in the Till case?

    2. Do you have proof that Phil was a member of the KKK, beat blacks, or participated in any hate crime against blacks at that time?

    3. Do you have proof that of his experience that he stated, that he is lying in any shape, manner, or form, other than your own biased presumption of him?

    The answer to all three should be a resounding NO, if you are honest.

    None of that matters. You quoted me as saying the criteria was a history of inaccuracy. If you are using me, then logically, you have to show Fox News has. History of being inaccurate.

    I have two sources, and that's two more than yours. Btw, if you look up the normal law of such contracts, you'll find that such moral clauses are standard. So, that's a third thing I have. You? Just willing suspension of disbelief.

    Of course. I've observed you guys for years now. That's valuable experience for this.
