    That is about the time Fox started in heavy on their attacks.
    So instead of providing evidence that FOX News lies, you divert to another subject. Put down your DNC playbook and provide proof of your claim.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    I'm not a Republican for one and secondly you didn't provide any proof. I'll give you one last opportunity to provide proof. Do some research and get back to me when you find actual proof.

    What it boils down to, is that you're just pissed because FNC didn't lie and coverup for PBO's failures, like the rest of the MSM.

    FNC is telling the truth and therein lies the problem that the Libbos are having with them.

    Guys, calling someone a liar is a huge accusation. In doing so, you put the burden of proof on yourself of prove your claim lest you lose credibility and all your lost credibility goes straight to the person you were trying to knock down.

    That being said....GD can't prove that FNC lies. They post a few whacko links from google and MM. That's nothing, if they lie then more than MM would have evidence of it.

    GD has lost credibility in my book and I just got here. If you make such a claim, you MUST have proof ready. Undeniable, unbiased proof. Otherwise you blow your credibility and no one will even bother acknowledging you in the future. And I don't want that to happen to you, GD. After all, ya gotta nice lookin' dog in your avatar photo. Its really appropriate though. That dog is as loyal to its owner as you are the the democratic party!!

    Why is that?

    Because FNC is (supposedly) overly critical of The Obama's administration, and therefore woudl look for things that other networks might not.



    Doesnt that denote a flaw in the other networks, rather than FNC?
    Your far-right conspiracy theory is flawed in several ways:

    1) You'd have people believe that multi-national media corporations like Disney(ABC), Time-Warner(CNN), and GE(NBC) are would be willing to lose money (ratings) by not covering an important or relevant story just to protect the image of President Obama.

    2) When Fox crows about being the only network to cover a specific story--that does not mean the particular story has any merit or is without bias in it's coverage.

    3) You completely ignore the ratio of Opinion to News on FNC. And the amount of editorial content that finds its way into the straight news shows.

    If you were going to start a conservative cable TV network, wouldn't it be a brilliant marketing strategy to convince the public that the other networks were less reliable because they have a liberal bias??

    That way people from right-of-center to far-right would tune in immediately and you could grab up a huge market share right out of the gate. You'd be smart to time the start of this network during a Democratic presidency--like Bill Clinton.

    But the key to this strategy would be a tag line that would further convince everyone you're a legitimate news endeavor without bias -- something like "Fair and Balanced".

    Hmmm.

    One wonders, then, about a "strategy" to "convince everyone" that Fox News is "not news."

    Naaaah. Would never happen, because those who say so are far too noble.

    Welcome to DP, where self-described "moderates" and "centrists" are almost unfailingly hyper-partisan liberal.
