    Re: Fox News firebrand Glenn Beck facing axe

    I did mention that my original post was slightly off topic but relevant to all the posts on this thread pertaining to boycotts.

    I am drafting a post on the CU subject as it relates to boycotts, etc.

    Where do y'all think it should go? it's relevant to the Wisconsin question. As it relates to the unions using dues to support political campaigns, and corporations using their stockholders funds to do the same.

    But is it Breaking News, Partisan Politics, or what? I go On Topic, Off Message enough as it is,, so let's put it where it belongs.

    For me it's more into the courts and constitutional interpretation as the broader issue.

    If Obama wasn't such an obvious Republican lackey, he could enact more goverment regulations on big business, like in Canada
    where Fox News was recently banned from broadcasting!

    Right, love liberals who want to silence any opposing views. What exactly is it in the Democratic Party that creates such loyal followers who would trample all over "Freedom of Speech" in order to promote their agenda?

    "I" feel that Fox news indulges in far too much propaganda. The sneaky cognitive linquistic type. Lying scientifically. Deliberately deceiving.

    I wish no one felt it necessary to use these tools in our national discourse. And I am disgusted by the Dems deciding "If you can't beat them, join them", designing their own propaganda firehose.

    The only solution that I find acceptable is to educate the American people about these techniques. That way, their effectiveness will be reduced, and their use should be reduced commensurately.

    I am deeply disturbed that so few here will even discuss "persuasion" techniques and their impact on our society.

    But everyone I have spoken to that has a degree that includes these techniques in their curriculum were given some form of " the first rule of persuasion is that no one talks about persuasion" admonition. BECAUSE if everyone knew how this science works, it would be harder for them to use these tools for their future employers.

    Communication/marketing, law, poly sci, all these disciplines study these tools.
    I'm sure there are others.

    This science, and the fact that few who are aware of it will even discuss it, is, IMHO the single greatest threat facing this nation.

    How about offering something of substance instead of letwing opinions?

    If Fox News makes liberals act this crazy then I will have to watch more and help increase their already extremely high ratings. I keep hearing that it is a Republican mouthpiece but challenge anyone to provide verifiable evidence that the Hard News Reports on Fox are partisan? Too many continue to buy what they are told yet offer nothing of substance to show they have any credibility.
