    Not stalking. I don't follow you around. If you pop up where I am, that's your problem.

    How is fear mongering not relevant to this man's action?

    Do you think that if Fox News and the rest of Conservative media did not bash Pelosi and the Obama administration with terms such as "Stalinist, Communist, Maoist" and overly giving the appearance that liberals are a cancer on America, that this person would have any idea who Pelosi was or why to hate her?

    Without the disgustingly slant media (both sides of the aisle) the average person would not know how to think about policies; it's called political hot boxing.

    I think you're making a whole lot out of nothing. Unless of course you can prove this guy was influenced by Fox or the "Conservative" media (whatever that is). Or is it just partisan hackery and conspiracy theories on your part?

    To say he was not influence by Fox News or Conservative media is naive at best. Even the most sane people are influenced by Liberal and Conservative slanted media.

    It is not a conspiracy theory. Media influences the way people think about politics.

    Here you go.

    Excerpted from “Accused man's mom blames Fox News for behavior” By Dan Noyes , Chief Investigative Reporter, KGO-TV SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Wednesday, April 07, 2010
    Gregory Giusti's 83-year-old mother had not heard that her son had been arrested, but she told ABC7 he has a history of mental problems. She does not think he would be capable of carrying out the threat; he has never owned a gun, and she blames Fox News for getting her son worked up.

    Giusti was arrested Wednesday afternoon for threatening Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi over recent healthcare legislation. …
    “Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001

    Yeah, that's some proof that Fox is making people do bad things.

    Influence is not the same as making people do crazy ****. Care to take another crack at proving your assertion?

    But it's still influence.
