    It's absolutely no coincidence that the folks whom have a hard time interpreting simple instructions, or whom refuse to follow guidelines, are the same folks that consider Fox to be news, or to be less biased than other networks.

    I responded to Stinger and said, "There are several mentions of "Barack Hussein Obama" in Fox News Transcripts on Lexis Nexis. The first was in December 2006 on and the last a few days ago, during an interview with Ann Coulter. He was only referred to as such AFTER he became a possible candidate for the Democrat Presidential nomination." I responded to TOT and said, "Fox started using Obama's middle name only after he became a candidate."

    I have no idea why you're asking me to tell you what I've said. I'm saying
    what I'm saying, not anything different. Read my posts.
    I watch Fox News all the time and I have never seen Obama's middle name at the bottom ticker. I would like to see proof of this.

    You posted some kind of Google search with many links. Which one do you specifically want me to look at?

    Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is the son of a Kenyan father and a white mother. He offers himself as a cross-generational politician who wants to move beyond the fallout from the 1960s and break the conventional left and right, liberal-conservative pigeonholes of American politics.
    FOXNews.com - Barack Obama Ponders Presidential Bid Amid Political Popularity - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

    This is just his backgroud being described.

    MANCHESTER, N.H. Sen. Barack Obama says he may have to overcome questions about his inexperience, stereotypes about his race and even a middle name that reminds Americans of Iraq's former dictator.

    Despite all that, the Illinois Democrat received plenty of encouragement to enter the presidential race during an initial trip to this pivotal campaign state.

    Barack Hussein Obama drew the kind of political frenzy that is commonplace in New Hampshire in the final month before the nation's first presidential primary.
    FOXNews.com - Democrats Encourage Sen. Obama to Run for President in 2008 - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

    Obama brought up his middle name here.

    "If your name is Barack Hussein Obama, you can expect it, some of that. I think the majority of voters know that I'm a member of the United Church of Christ, and that I take my faith seriously," Obama said in an interview with The Associated Press.
    FOXNews.com - Obama Stresses Appreciation for Faith - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

    This is Obama's quote.

    Question 6: In a memoir written 11 years ago, presidential front-runner Barack Obama (D-IL) admitted to using marijuana and cocaine. Of the following, which is NOT true of Obama?

    A. He is the first White House contender to admit trying cocaine
    B. He is the only African American currently serving in the U.S. Senate
    C. His father is a native of Illinois
    D. His full name is Barack Hussein Obama
    FOXNews.com - How Much News Do You Know? - FOX Fan

    What is wrong with the usage of his middle name here?

    Overall, the claim that Fox News always calls Obama "Barack Hussein Obama" is non existant in terms of bias.

    and that was a claim I never made. if you can find me saying it, I'll make every post from now on be in praise of President Bush! you're imagining things.

    question for you, Pat. did Fox ever use Obama's middle name before it looked like he might seek the Democrap Presidential nomination?

    another question for you, Pat. Is FOX NEWS biased? Yes or No?

    Then don't post pointless articles.

    I don't know. He wasn't talked about as much before he became a Democratic Presidential nominee.

    another question for you, Pat. Is FOX NEWS biased? Yes or No?
    The way they present the news is not biased. The opinion parts lean conservative, but they still present both sides when debating. For example, they always have a Republican strategist and a Democratic strategist when debating political issues.

    do they?

    If I can give you one example of an all right-wing panel discussion, will you admit that you're wrong?

    I can't tell you how many times I've tuned in to see Fred Barnes, Bill Kristol, and Charles SourKrauthammer talking about Iraq with no lefty in sight.

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    FOX news has, on occassion, has presented several outlandish leftwing baffoons and weak limp-wristed "democrats" on thier shows to chime in "for the other side" as if they were truly representitive of the left-of-center crowd but rarely, if ever, will you see them put two intelligent, strong orators from the "other side" (apples-to-apples, so to speak) in the ring together on level ground. And if they ever did, their editing department would be working overtime to get the propaganda sliced and diced to favor their outcome.

    I remember back during the last prez race, and the campaign that ran up to it, they DID put fair, intelligent guests on from the other side. Only to shout them down and not let them get a word in edgewise.

    FOX not biased. That's about the craziest thing I heard since my wife told me she locked her keys in the convertable and she can't get in to put the top up. Puh-leeeeze.
