    No...All of a sudden because the world paid attention, ISIS became sort of public enemy number one and the Imams and other Muslim leaders roundly condemned them Citizens united against them. Because ISIS showed the world who they were and the world saw them in all their ugly brutality for the first time.

    Fox News didnt show the world that. Fox News showed America that. And you are so warped in your hatred that instead of truly seeing ISIS, you vent your spleen on the 'real' enemy. The 'world' sees ISIS. You see Fox News.

    Thats just sad.

    Good or Bad
    Neither. It's the truth. Good taste, poor taste? In the eye of the beholder.

    Your posts are usually not this disingenuous.

    I said I have no opinion on Fox posting this video. I said I can't speak for the family of this man who was burned alive. I said that if he was my husband I would care that he was burned alive, not who watched him get burned alive in a video posted on the Fox News website (or any other website for that matter).

    You've been trying repeatedly to get me to share your intense dislike of Fox posting this video on their website, even going so far as bringing my husband into it. I'm too smart to apply emotional hypotheticals to something that I have no opinion on.

    Fox reported. You decide. But don't expect me to say whether Fox reporting was good or bad in this situation. I don't have any opinion on it. I never watched the video and it doesn't affect me if you do. Your choice.

    That's all of a sudden? I think the world took note long ago.

    ISIS became sort of public enemy number one and the Imams and other Muslim leaders roundly condemned them Citizens united against them. Because ISIS showed the world who they were and the world saw them in all their ugly brutality for the first time.
    Let me get this straight....

    You're saying that the video published on the FoxNews site has allowed the world -- for the first time! -- to see that ISIS are a bunch of crazy murderous lunatics? Is that your stance???

    Fox News didnt show the world that. Fox News showed America that.
    Huh??? Now the world knows but Americans don't? You're all over the place, Vance.

    And you are so warped in your hatred that instead of truly seeing ISIS, you vent your spleen on the 'real' enemy. The 'world' sees ISIS. You see Fox News.
    Are you ****ing kidding me? Trust me, FoxNews would be without my critique on this matter had they not published a video of someone being burned to death.

    Tell me, Vance, if you so strongly feel that this is the only way Americans and the world would take notice of ISIS and their murderous ways, then why didn't Fox publish the video of James Foley getting his head chopped off? You must think they really missed the boat on that one, eh! But rest-assured, in consistent fashion, I will put aside my silly rage against FoxNews and applaud them for not doing so!

    Way to go, FoxNews!!!! i

    Thats just sad.
    Thinking that posting videos that would make 4chan retards vomit, is waaaaaay, way sadder.
    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.

    Yes, that is exactly what I got. It does not matter to you that video depicting a murder is open available for all to see on a news website. Got it... no need to sugar coat it.

    So you need to watch the video to make an opinion? You know the content.... so it's you who is being disingenuous, my friend.

    Don't be pissed at me because your attempt to get me to join you in an attack on Fox News failed.

    I'm apparently no different than a lot of other people who don't really care either. You & pete may want to start a club.

    Fox reported. You decided. Isn't that their tagline "We report. You decide."? They reported.

    I am not pissed.

    I get it… you don't care. No need to reiterate it a million times.
