    You do realize that both of these shows are opinion shows and not news shows right?

    None of this addresses the topic at hand. Try putting down your liberal playbook that states to divert, divert, divert on every page and try sticking to the topic. I'll give you one last chance to address what you claimed. If you can't or won't, then we'll just write you off as nothing but a partisan hack who does nothing but smear for the sake of smearing. Just to refresh your memory, here is the topic of which you were asked to provide proof:

    What is this proof of exactly? The title of the article is a question and there are quotes from folks from "both sides of the aisle" politically. It's actually a well written article in which the author reaches no conclusion herself anywhere in the article. FAIL

    Ooooh, NewsHounds! Another bastion of legitimacy! Did you watch the video? It comes no where close to the article that NewsHounds published just above the video. It's two people plus Hannity discussing a poll where 24% of Americans think Obama is a Muslim. Hannity mentions not once, but twice that he spent many years in Jeremiah Wright's church where he preached black liberation theology. This is a totally misleading article completely full of lies. FAIL

    A guest stated that he was a mentor. He stated three indisuptable facts concerning their "relationship". FAIL

    Not sure what angle you were going for here, but it's Hannity interviewing an author who wrote a book about Obama and his ties to "Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists". I'm thinking you pulled a muscle about three posts ago stretching entirely too far. FAIL

    You swung and missed six straight times. It's pretty obvious to me that you are merely here to smear and deflect, regardless of the truth and regardless of the facts. I do applaud you for making the effort though, as pathetic as it was, at least you gave it a shot.

    Compared to the rest of the industrialised world, is what he's saying. America, on the world-scale, is a right-leaning nation, compared to the majority of Europe, which is left-leaning. As such, the Conservative Party in Britain is in many ways farther to the left than the Democrat Party is in the United States -- the entirety of the US political scale is shifted a few points right, compared to much of the rest of the world. To a Brit or a Frenchman, for example, the Republican Party is so far right that it regularly crosses the line into fanaticism, reactionism and fascism. The Democrat Party is seen as a moderately right-leaning party.

    In contrast, the Conservative Party of Britain would be seen as a left-leaning party in America, and the Labour Party would be seen as full-blown socialist (which in many ways it is -- but that term does not carry a stigma in Europe, and it's a perfectly acceptable and rational (most would say preferable) stance to align your party on).

    McCain can absolutely be linked to people that went to prison. As a matter of fact he, along with many of his buddies, was in prision for several years.

    If you can't see through the cloud of propaganda that Fox has conditioned you to believe without hesitation, then I am done trying to convince you otherwise. lost cause. But the link above wasn't an example of Fox's 'misinterpretaions' of the news, it was a fact checker, which you would know if you actually read it without that Fox mind control device in the back of your head. You made up your mind about this issue before hearing a word from anyone else and you know it. FACT: Fox News has a right wing bias. Plain and simple. If you believe otherwise... I'm sorry... It's to late for you.

    O'Reilly is an opinion show. Beck is an opinion show. So is Hannity. It's not all news all the time, but I think there "news" is pretty fair and balanced.
