We are NOT getting anything near the truth from ANY American news agency.

They all get their marching orders from the same place.

Each one just presents a different interpretation of those marching orders.

They all do the exact same stories, but from a different viewpoint.
It's still the same story being reported, and you still come to the same conclusion.

I agree. To get to the truth of an issue, if it is important enough, I usually read a variety of news sources and internet stuff. I find that the closest you can get to the truth is local news reporting a local story. Wire services and big national news are nearly useless.

I suppose they did miss that, they missed the fact that America is over. We all know it now. No one will feel it more than the poor dumocrat supporters.

47% vs 51%. They weren't off by that much, but it was a very significant amount.


The welfare leaches have taken over. It's going to be a very interesting 4 years.

Fox News had no idea that mittens would lose. It just shows what a fantasy-land they live in and feed daily to their sheep. ...the same sheep that will be sucking up the same crap 3 1/2 years from now like it's Gospel Truth.

Good for you. You predicted Barry would win, and even voted for him. Knowing what you knew.

Do you have any disagreements with the Barry supported that is quoted and linked to in my sig, or are you also willing to give up your rights for the liberal agenda?

I think that Fox will indeed lose viewership.

But CNN won't pick them up.

Nope, I still don't see them as have my settings set so as not to. If you use a sig line do you also hang a sign around your neck with a printout of them so folks can read it during FTF conversations???

I approve of my current sig line 100%. I might have a card printed up with it and wear it our to the range. I'd expect a good response.

Fox news is far from any source of truth. If you look up under the FCC guidelines Fox is classified as entertainment, not a news network. I stopped believing any main stream news 5 years ago when I started seeing actual video of stuff that's going on that the lie-stream media said the opposite of. There is none or very little journalism done at any major network. They are given a script of propaganda to shove in peoples faces. Remember two months ago how lie-stream media shoved it in our faces that it was a so-called movie that caused the attack at the Lybia embassy. No network looked into that, and fox shoved that propaganda in your face too. It wasn't till alternative news bloggers started looking into this that the truth was exposed. You want news and real reporting?, go to alternative news blogs.
