    Since I'll never know what their reasoning is, I'll just hope it was posted for the news value and nothing else.
    I believe in love overcoming hate ..To that end; we should fund a Pope Francis news channel to counter Fox and all the other sensational based "news" .

    Not to worry. There are some exceptional people who might be able to save you when evil doesn't respond to your loving outreach.

    It's obvious you don't want to play with my hypothetical, so to me, you're not being honest. My point (which went over your head (?)) is that if someone is okay with FoxNews offering this propaganda piece for all to see, then they give no two **** about protecting the family and friends of the man that was burnt to death, or, at the very least, being respectful. I was trying to offer a comparable analogy, to make it "more close to home," with hopes that my point would a incite lightbulb moment. Looks like a miserable fail.

    I never watched the video. I also never looked at pictures of a dead Sharon Tate. I also didn't watch the videos of the poor innocent people jumping off the World Trade Center towers. I also didn't look at pictures of a dead Suddam Hussein.
    That is you. Most do.

    I don't watch this kind of thing so I don't care who puts it out there. Ask those who watch it the emotional questions.
    I get it. If a video of a close friend or family member being burnt to death ever makes it's way onto a popular website, it would be fine with you because you do not watch. Truly, I got it.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Without batting an eyelash, you couldnt WAIT to toss out the ISIS propaganda line. Lets see...a group of savage assholes that have been butchering men women and children, that are on video crushing childrens heads in with rocks, that gleefully behead people in the glorious name of Allah, and that recently torched a human being rushed to blame the death of a hostage on retaliation. Gosh...if only those eeeeevil Jordanians hadnt responded....she would still be alive. And you swallowed hard.

    I cannot even begin to express how ****ing pathetic it is that people like you are so consumed in your hatred of a news agency that you would actually repeat the propaganda lies of a terror organization.

    The end result of ISIS releasing that video was not a propaganda gain for ISIS. It was a complete and total failure. IT inspired those previously silent to finally raise their voice. IT shocked and horrified people out of their silence. Rather than simply admit the truth...you spew your hatred of Fox News and repeat a propaganda lie spoon feed to you be terrorists.

    Sorry, Vance, it's not being idiotic coming to the conclusion that she could have died in the bombing. Your over-the-top reaction is quite comical.

    And my pointing out that FoxNews is being classless and idiotic by posting this propaganda piece and murder for all to see, has nothing to do with hatred. However, it has everything to do with common sense and decency. They are making the 4chan pukes look classy.

    Come now. In your zeal to trash Fox News over 'propaganda' for ISIS, you offered...propaganda FROM ISIS.


    You call it classless...I call it necessary. All of a sudden people have their eyes open and are actually willing to engage an enemy. Meanwhile, that same enemy has been doing far more brutal things for 2 years...and no one sees anything, no one says anything. Ooops...I take it back. People DO say something. They say..."Yeah...but CHRISTIANS did it too 700 years ago..."

    It was a fail because you're posting to the wrong person.

    If that man in the video was my husband, the fact that it's on Fox News' website or any website wouldn't mean anything to me. I wouldn't care about that. I'd care that my husband was burned alive.

    If you want to complain that Fox isn't respecting the family of the man in the video, then fine. That doesn't have anything to do with me. I don't agree or disagree with that. It's your opinion. I don't have an opinion on it.

    Yes, all of a sudden--because FoxNews has the wherewithal to post a video of a guy burning to death--people now realize that ISIS is really bad.

    But you do have an opinion. An opinion of not caring whether a video posted on a website for all to see of someone you care about brutally dying. You said it yourself.
