    No idea. Could have been any number of reasons. Doesn't matter. The claim -- by ThinkProgress (sic) and Groucho -- is that they "explained" they cut away because he was being "combative" and "lecturing." That's not what they said.

    To say it was is either dishonest or because it's viewed from deep inside the Kool-Aid bowl.

    I don't care what "reasons" left-wingers give for the actions of Fox - that perpetuates bull****. I do care that Fox is not giving full access to a political event they started to cover. I have seen them do this before and all they do is throw talking heads on the air. It is a ****ing disgrace.

    My Way News - Bin Laden blasts US for climate change

    One of them should have asked Obama why he sounds so much like Osama.

    In the tape, broadcast in part on Al-Jazeera television, bin Laden warned of the dangers of climate change and says that the way to stop it is to bring "the wheels of the American economy" to a halt.

    He blamed Western industrialized nations for hunger, desertification and floods across the globe, and called for "drastic solutions" to global warming, and "not solutions that partially reduce the effect of climate change."
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Well, the video clearly shows that they called him "combative" and "lecturing."

    I agree that they never said clearly "We're cutting away because he's making us look bad" but seriously, what other conclusion can you make?

    You have a 24 hour news channel. You cover important news live, as it happens. You have plenty of time to interview other politicians. And you cut away from the most important live news happening at that time -- a live, recorded give-and-take between the President and the opposition party that is unprecedented -- to interview some talking head about exactly what is going on at that moment.

    Come on. None of the other 24 hour networks did that. The most obvious conclusion is that Fox didn't like what they were seeing. You got another explanation that makes better sense? Let's hear it.

    Well, that's a different issue from that to which I was responding.

    I have no idea. I do know that I don't jump to conclusions based on forty seconds of video.

    As I've said, there could be many reasons for it, just as there could have been many reasons for CNN and MSNBC not showing Scott Brown's victory speech.

    Bias could be one of those reasons, but I don't automatically assume it.
