    ROTFLMFAO... Europe is one big socialist propaganda sewer pipe.
    Balanced news?
    You have to be ****ing joking. There are spots of sanity, but way too few.

    Just look at your reaction to FOX... that tells us where your head is.
    Typical myopic Euro.

    Fact is, you folks have been on the wrong side of just about every major issue since the end of WWII.
    How is that?
    Brilliant reporting to the citizens of the incontinent?
    By Euro's I do not mean the British.

    I think you are ignoring the content of my posts and deflecting... Your first link was to a youtube video about O'Reilly talking about Adam Lambart being gay. Please address the content of my post and stop dancing around it.

    You posting Media Matters shows hypocrisy in the fact that you talk about trusting sources and media (like the IDF and FoxNews) but you are all too willing to trust an openly biased and lying source that's sole purpose for existence is to bash conservative media. I am not denying that FoxNews didn't change the picture, but they didn't change the picture to alter facts and it was during a humor session on a morning show. This is not equal to cropping a picture to hide the facts and to shape one's opinion on an issue. Regardless, the issue is not about FoxNews, the issue is about Reuters and their editing of pictures and doing so to hide facts.

    No you are. You seem to be ignoring the O'Rielly clip totally and focusing on the picture altering bit of the second link.. why is that? I dont care that they changed the pictures of two New York Times reporters for "fun" on a supposed serious news channel.. the very fact that they DID do it shows that they are not beneath altering content to promote a view. But back to the O'Rielly clip.. why are you ignoring that? Do you deny that Fox News cropped a picture of two gay men kissing so that the picture only shows the top of their heads and nothing of the mouth to mouth action? And why did they do that? To hide the facts? To spare its viewers of the shock that there are homosexuals? Why?

    You posting Media Matters shows hypocrisy in the fact that you talk about trusting sources and media (like the IDF and FoxNews) but you are all too willing to trust an openly biased and lying source that's sole purpose for existence is to bash conservative media.
    No I dont trust Media Matters, but I do trust my eyes and ears. Media Matters provides a service to expose conservative media especially for its hypocrisy and lies. Now you might not like that, but that is how it is. If Conservative media was so freaking perfect, then Media Matters would not have so much on it to be critical off. Does Media Matters go after other news organisations as well? Yes or no? Does media matters not back up its accusations with evidence? Yes or no? Is mediamatters always right, perfect and even fair in its accusations? no of course not, hence each accusation has to be reviewed individually and taken in context to the media source in question.

    I am not denying that FoxNews didn't change the picture, but they didn't change the picture to alter facts and it was during a humor session on a morning show.
    And Reuters did not change the picture to alter the facts. There are plenty of other footage showing the activists armed. Reuters admitted they made a mistake, and that it was not deliberate. The fact that the knife is at the outer edges of the picture means that an accident of doing such a thing while cropping a picture for mass distribution can happen. After all the picture was of an injured IDF tropper not, of a guy holding something at the outer edge of the picture. Now with Fox News, they deliberately changed the pictures to mock a competitors reporters. HUGE difference.

    This is not equal to cropping a picture to hide the facts and to shape one's opinion on an issue.
    First off they are not hiding any facts. They admit they made a mistake and changed it fast. Secondly it is a well known fact that the people on the boat had armed themselves with whatever they could find. Suddenly defending yourself is wrong?

    Regardless, the issue is not about Fox News, the issue is about Reuters and their editing of pictures and doing so to hide facts.
    And they did not hide facts. Only Fox News (and the pro-Israeli propaganda machine) is promoting this angel. Hence it is very much about Fox News and its motives and its own history on the subject.

    No, the Brits did not opt out of the Euro. They did not opt IN... big difference.

    How can the Euro's be so perfectly wrong on major issues time after time after time?
    Couldn't be their world view?
    Couldn't be the sludge passed off as news day after day could it?

    Yes it could.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    U.S. diplomat's view of Europe

    Martin Walker
    Published 11/14/2002

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "You want to know what I really think of the Europeans?" asked the senior State Department official. "I think they have been wrong on just about every major international issue for the past 20 years."

    "They told us they could fix the Bosnian mess all on their own. Wrong."

    "They told us the Russians would never accept NATO enlargement. Wrong."

    "They told us that the Russians would never accept National Missile Defense. Wrong."

    "They told us that if we withdrew from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty of 1972 the whole structure of international arms control agreements would come crashing down. Wrong."

    "They told us that the Kyoto Protocol was a good and worthwhile treaty, more than just cosmetics. Wrong."

    "They told us that the European Union's new common security and defense policy would improve the military abilities of the NATO allies in Europe. Wrong."

    "These were also the people who were wrong about Ronald Reagan and the Evil Empire, the same 'friends' who helped vote us off the United Nations Human Rights Commission. These are the people who whine about our farm bill when they are the world's prime protectionists. They are not just repeatedly wrong; they are also a bunch of hypocrites. So why should we pay attention to a single thing they say?"

    The official, a career diplomat who speaks fluent French and likes to vacation in Italy, sat back and took an appreciative sip from his glass of good red wine from Bordeaux.

    "One more thing," he added. "Whenever I use the word Europeans, I don't mean the Brits."

    It was perhaps the most interesting and informative off-the-record lunch this reporter had attended in some three decades in the news business. The speaker was not a political appointee with a cursory knowledge of international affairs, but a professional and highly experienced foreign service officer with a wide rangeof friends and contacts across Europe.

    He is a cultivated and courteous man, but he was angry, in that dangerous way quiet men can be. And the unveiled contempt in his voice and the curl of his lip whenhe drawled out the word "Europeans" said as much for the depth of his feelings as his bitter rhetoric.

    Europeans do not yet get this, the great sea change that has taken place in the American foreign policy establishment. It would be easy to date this from the terrorist attack on September 11, but it goes back further. I can recall hearing the first faint notes of this leitmotif of American contempt, like the distant hunting call in some Wagnerian opera that foreshadows the musical thunder to come, during the Bosnian crisis in 1993-95.

    Perhaps we should have recognized hints of it back in the 1980s, over the sanctions against the Siberian gas pipeline and over "Star Wars." Most European diplomats dismissed these arguments at the time as clumsy Reaganism, the embarrassing kinds of excess to be expected from provincial American politicians. Doubtless, they smugly assured one another, Mr. Reagan's crudities would soon be tamed by their good friends in the foreign policy establishment: the State Department; the Council on Foreign Relations; and the op-ed pages of the New York Times and The Washington Post.

    Well, the Europeans may still be able to count on the sympathies and cultural deference of many East Coast journalists, but something has shifted among the diplomats, the think tanks and even many of the academics. At a think-tank meeting last week, when a European diplomat asked rather patronizingly what all these American weapons were actually for, a renowned liberal academic simply quoted Kipling's line about "Making mock of uniforms that guard you while you sleep." And then he turned on his heel and walked away.

    America's foreign policy establishment is composed largely of people who seldom pay much attention to military matters, but since the Kosovo war, they have come to appreciate the vast disparities between the U.S. armed forces and the rest. It is now widely understood that of all the Europeans, only the British can begin to fight on the same modern battlefield as the hugely expensive and technologically advanced American forces. The rest of the Europeans are so many free riders on the readiness of American taxpayers to spend twice as much as Europeans on what remains the common defense.

    That is the background to the NATO summit that opens next week in Prague. It should be a triumphant coda to the grand achievement of the Atlantic alliance at the end of the Cold War, the fulfillment of the first President George Bush's stirring call to "a Europe whole and free." But, unless the Europeans recognize the glitter of contempt in the American eye and the new resolve that lies behind it, it may become NATO's epilogue.
    And we should follow these fools?
    Not.
    They are constantly wrong.
    Add Iraq to the mix, and their reaction after the "Hate Boat" was inspected.

    Fox News distorting pictures

    Fox News Gives NY Times Reporters Yellow Teeth, Big Nose

    Seriously, the fake outrage against Reuters by Fox News and the conservative right, when their own media organisation in Fox News does it constantly is.... so ironic, not to mention highly biased for the "fair and balanced" network.
    Fox News was trying to make those NYtimes reporters look like smokers,heavy coffee,soda or tea drinkers, British or European? Yes it was wrong on Fox News part to try to make NYtimes reporters look like heavy coffee,soda or tea drinkers, British or European. So you do admit that altering photos does have a purpose of trying to portray something that is not real.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
