    I'm just saying he may be because he used to be the scapegoat that many on the left would use when they would criticize Fox News.

    She actually didn't ... there are even subtitles. Guess it was slick enough to fool Fox's audience.

    I know. That scapegoating is what got me watching him to start with. Glad they did because I find the guy to be firm but fair. Fair before anything else.

    If FNC is the opposition, and the opposition is more likely to be critical of the claims of the administration - by asking the tough questions and finding the inconvenient truths - aren't they then just doing their job?

    I mean, isn't the press SUPPOSED to do these things?

    Has reading always been a problem for you???

    We are revising it. It'll be out in 2010. It is not yet out.

    I am fascinated by the lack of coherent arguments from the Bush and Conservative haters when their efforts to attack a news organization for purely hyper partisan political purposes are exposed for being just that.

    Again, there is only ONE reason to engage in such partisan hyperbole; and that is because this administration and their Librul allies are attempting to KEEP the truth and the facts from the American people.

    The TRUTH is that any open and HONEST debate about healthcare will end up losing them support of their partisan agenda to force Universal Healthcare down our throats in an effort to create a permanent dependent constituency.

    There are no FACTS to support this administrations hyperbolic rhetoric, lies and distortions and attempts to demagogue their political opponents.

    Hahaha so now you're saying the NY Times and NBC declared war on the Bush administration. Do you have any proof of this? Links please? Do we have an official declaration from the news agencies saying they are at war with the Bush Administration? I thought not.

    You seem to forget all the news agencies were gung ho for the Iraq war and helped cheerlead us into the war.

    But as for your claim that they declared war on the bush administration are you not in same way also admitting Fox news declared war on the Obama administration much as you'd be admitting they did during the Clinton administration. That's how Fox got started was it not?

    There hasn't been an honest and open debate on health care. When you have news agencies claiming there are death panels, veteran death books and people at town hall meetings shutting down debate there won't be an honest discussion.

    Most of the polls out there support health care reform. Now let me ask you TD how often do you hear on the news stations about Insurance companies dropping people because of preexisting conditions?

    You know that insurance companies consider acne to be a preexisting condition? Women have the greatest obstacles as getting pregnant is considered optional to insurance companies. Women who have C-sections, that's considered a preexisting condition. How often are we hearing about the scams these insurance companies run?

    What about the fact that insurance companies are perfectly fine with socialized property insurance? The government covers insurance companies when it comes to disaster insurance I guess the free market doesn't work in that scenario for them.

    I agree! I will actually watch Fox sometimes, (although I can't bring myself to watch Hannity)...but only to get the GOP's spin on events.
    I have no problem with their bias.....My problem is with outright lies & their pretending to be a real news organization & not the media arm of the GOP....That's lying....Plain & simple!

    That is what she said .... and the only reason you know that is b/c the YouTube put in the vid of her original comments, not the clipped ones that Wallace played. Duckworth was talking about the REVISED one not yet out .... NOT the Bush one already out.


    and, ps, no, I have no trouble reading .... but why are you asking me personal questions?
