    Apparently someone on a reality tv show I have never seen nor care to see. I had to do a google search on the person. I thought it was a snack or something.

    It was true that more celebrity news has punctured the press (including Fox), but I would also agree CNN and a few others have been considerably worse with celebrity news coverage.

    Agreed, it only did them more bad than good. Also I would say all of them talk way to much about **** I don't care about like Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Palin, you know whores.

    Yep. The problem the Democratic Party had was they did not want to try to give Fox News, the conservative-biased branch, any face time because they thought they could punish the little child and make it behave properly. The problem was that they were politically alienating a more conservative branch from being in any way persuaded by their message at the same time that they decided it would be a terrific idea to alienate the number one station for news coverage. They put more fuel in the fire, convincing conservatives of any stripe that these Democrats will not pay attention to their platform, their morals or passion-and the Democrats fell right into their own trap. Now Democrats are successfully branded as those who will only do what they want to do, irregardless of the dissent. It is not enough to make people complain about your lack of cooperation, but that the numbers making it political suicide is what is most striking. That boldness is only going to work if they think it will come out good in the end, and in this case, they were clearly in the wrong and had to make amends.

    I think they cover Palin by virtue of her becoming a politician before a media star.

    Screamin' Dean told FOXNEWS just that. He was immediately corrected by Mike Wallace, who said that his program was going to stick with the facts and Dean was not going to be allowed to continue with that lie on Fox.

    So Dean repeated his lie on another network. Which tolerated it.

    So Fox reported the NEWS, which was that Fox had not aired one word about Sherrod before the Messiah panicked and forced her to resign before Beck went on the air.

    The above actions, Fox, the news channel; Dean, the typical Democrat mouthpiece; and the propaganda channels, are typical for each player, and precisely why the news channel has the huge lead in the ratings. People watch news programs to learn the truth, not hear propaganda.
    Anderson Cooper is now saying he is sorry and did not do his job properly for not challenging Sherrod when she called Breitbart a racist. Maybe there's hope for CNN yet. At least Cooper is trying to be honest... or is hoping for a job at Fox.

    Way to go.

    Anyways, I have read on Digg that the story that Fox got that seat could possibly be innaccurate. Does anyone have any links to it?

    Uhh... it's in the OP -- you know, the little blue text which when clicked takes you to the White House Coorespondents Association website?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Ah nm I found it. I was just looking at the wrong thing on their site. Their site sucks.

    Why would the story be reported as inaccurate on Digg then?
