    With all due respect I think he meant that in sarcasm.

    No one said they were. How does that change the fact about Fox?

    He stated Fox News doesn't tell 'the whole truth'. I replied that several news outlets practice the same kind of journalism. Do you dispute that?

    Well, a lot of the time, it doesn't. He never said that MSNBC does. So why on the defensive about it?

    Nope, I don't.

    Of course that statement is shocking, that's the whole purpose of the headline. The question should be is the reality of the situation actually as shocking but the article is written in such a way as to make it impossible to judge that and deliberately avoids referencing any of its figures. The tabloid media don't want you to be educated and informed, they want you to be shocked and scared. It makes it easier to sell you their trash that way.

    Not for corrupt Democrats.

    The more people on welfare, the more votes they get. It's part of the reason, IMO, why the Dem head honchos keep pushing for more and more social programs.

    People on welfare are often afraid of losing that welfare and which party is usually more in favor of not decreasing/increasing welfare?

    Hmmmmmm....

    Fox lies and says it is fair and balanced. That is wrong. If every other news organization lies too does that make Fox any less wrong? Two wrongs dont make a right, seems the RW has lost track of what they should have learned in kindergarten or Sunday School.

    Does it matter? Fox is still wrong. What ever happen to the party of morals and ethics?

    Look... people that lean towards the left politically generally try to paint Fox News as the black sheep of journalism standards. All I am saying is that they are not being intellectually honest. Several media outlets practice the same kind of journalism. They do it for ratings.

    But no one did that. So why on the offensive for Fox? It's true, isn't it?
