    Their are many opinions being broadcast all day on Fox News and from a variety of sources yet the complaint is always against the generic "Fox News". So far it seems, according to that web site cited earlier, it is Steve Doucey who is the biggest threat at Fox. Do any of these people ever get specific about what bothers them?

    [QUOTE=Grant;1059378599]He really doesn't have a clue, Barb.

    Earlier on another thread he was equally critical of Fox News but when asked for specific name he couldn't respond. All he he knows is that Fox News is the enemy and must be silenced.

    He trusts the BBC.[/QUOTE]

    Are you saying BBC trashes Fox too?

    I really don't understand people wanting to silence fox. It's the only channel that is conservative. Do they really want to be spoonfed the news from one side of the aisle? What would come next? News that only gets aired after the approval of the WH? News that does not hold our government accountable. I thought that was what free press was about. Not news media that carries the water for Washington.

    Apparently the BBC didn't want Fox News in the UK at one time but later said they did.

    The BBC is also notoriously anti American and there are many web sites dedicated to BBC Bias. The BBC is the British equivalent of NPR.

    I have come out in defense of Fox News right to free speech, Glenn Beck's right to free speech and against silencing conservatives.

    They should be investigated by the IRS and have their status stripped at a bare minimum. I don't mind them being activists, but not behind the non-veil-veil of a 501c3.

    Exemption Requirements - Section 501(c)(3) Organizations

    To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.

    Organizations described in section 501(c)(3) are commonly referred to as charitable organizations. Organizations described in section 501(c)(3), other than testing for public safety organizations, are eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions in accordance with Code section 170.

    The organization must not be organized or operated for the benefit of private interests, and no part of a section 501(c)(3) organization's net earnings may inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual. If the organization engages in an excess benefit transaction with a person having substantial influence over the organization, an excise tax may be imposed on the person and any organization managers agreeing to the transaction.

    Section 501(c)(3) organizations are restricted in how much political and legislative (lobbying) activities they may conduct. For a detailed discussion, see Political and Lobbying Activities. For more information about lobbying activities by charities, see the article Lobbying Issues; for more information about political activities of charities, see the FY-2002 CPE topic Election Year Issues.

    He trusts the BBC.
    actually, as measured by his sourcing, he trusts media matters to give him the straight scoop .

    You're forgetting the second rule of PR: never actually, factually lie. Convince people of a total untruth, that's fine. Factual lies destroy credibility. The subject audience need merely believe it true for the contract to be considered executed.
