    Attack on freedom of speech? Well sadly in the US "freedom of speech" also means freedom of responsibility for spreading lies and miss-information. It use to be that media out-lets that were considered serious, were called on their lax reporting. Now days, Fox News gets away with pretty much anything.. may it be the anti-education attacks their anchors make or the out right crazy conspiracy crap they pull. Nancy Grace not believing Fox News own weather man that the radiation coming from Japan was minimal on the west coast of the US.... really takes the top spot for me at the moment.. what an idiot of a woman. But sadly it is not the only example of their anchors with college degrees playing people with no high school education.

    Sorry but Fox News dug this hole they are in, and the fact that Media Matters has the balls to call them (and other media outlets too) on their miss-information, lies and propaganda should be applauded rather than scowled on. Someone has to keep the media in check, especially the serial liars and propaganda stations.
    Zackly. And I have no problem with people squawking about Schumers "extreme" comment.

    I don't like all this messaging crap.

    Annnnd, where in the 1st Amendment does it stipulate that?

    It's a damn good thing for CNN and MSNBC that that is the case.

    So we agree there's a problem.

    Now lets get together and demand more truth in News!

    Ok, sure. Don't watch the ****ing channel if you don't like it! I hope you're not one those guys that buys into crap like Rolling Stone's article about the killings in Afghanistan.

    I also think we should demand that charitable organizations who skip out on billions in taxes every year, because of their tax exempt status lose that status, if they engage in partisan political activity. Whatcha' think?

    Why are you so upset about the American people demanding more truth from their news outlets?

    Does the truth frighten you for some reason?

    Why do you assume I'm talking about any particular outlet?

    Hmmm?

    Where are the FOX lies?? Cripes, if I didn't watch it and only read and listened to what other people said about them, I'd think they were all destined for hell. I'd think Glenn Beck was the anti-Christ and Sean Hannity deserved the death penality.
    However, I do watch Fox and I trust what they say over all the others. Yes, I do watch all the others too.

    Of course Fox News has free speech rights, whoever suggested otherwise is wrong. But so does Media Matters and anyone who says Media Matters can shut down Fox News is clearly wrong.

    But you support their efforts anyway.

    If you were against people killing dogs, would you support the efforts of someone trying to kill one with a BB gun?

    Dag blast it Barb! I wasn't bashing Fox! Not this time, at least not exclusively.

    If you look back a couple posts you see me bring up Schumers "extreme" situation.

    I rail against Fox a lot because they indulge in far too many of the techniques elaborated on the site in my sig. Check it out. It will give you ammunition to see your world and make your points more clearly. Swear to God (whatever his Name may be)

    The left is disorganized and inept at the propagand indulged in by a subset of conservatives/republicans that has co-opted the conservatism I was raised on.

    The kind where you never encourage Americans to hate each other because of a difference of opinion. Or religious belief. Or any damn other thing.

    so, the fact that they don't lie is just further proof of their nefariousness. nice.
