I don't get it..

All these ex-Fox lovers crawling out and declaring "Oh! I used to love fox now i hate them!"

Precisely WHAT was there to LIKE about FOX previously?!?!?!??!

Fox has ALWAYS been a crappy network for brainless twits unable to think for themselves and whose minds were only briefly stung to life by a litany of salacious BOOBIE and BUTT comments and shots. There really wasn't anything vaguely meritorious about Fox before 2008.

So COME ONE COME ALL!, ADMIT you were Braindead Americans before Ron Paul !!!

It made you feel right and powerful and strong. And the boobie shots helped.

Because I can't stand democrats and still can't.

Because I can't stand democrats and still can't.

It's not the democrat aspect, it's the fiscal liberal aspect. They got the socially liberal part right.

i never watched fox that much, but i always looked at them as equal to other stations until recently....really sad after i did research...i cant believe this could happen here...but it does...go America

It's ok to admit we were wrong in liking fox previously.

Fox deliberately set out to make the Bush message of war sound sensisble and patriotic when in fact it was neither. It was a fraudulent message. Ruprt murdoch also did it because he knew all the defence companies would love his network and pay him for this.

It is sad that such a thing can happen in a land of thinking people.

So in the future, please make sure to do all you can to bring down Fox because they were instrumental in the killing of mny innocent people. Your brothers and sisters who died in Iraq for one.

the hot bishes on fox.

01-10-2008, 10:49 PM
I switched to Fox during the 2000 election coverage. I was tired of the left-leaning bias of the other networks.

I've now seen the light.

01-10-2008, 10:50 PM
I used to like fox because the format of the shows was so much better IMO than CNN. However, I can now say that I see beyond that and am seeing the information is the importance now.

I can no longer watch fox since I heard of Ron Paul and saw the obvious BIAS that I was not able to see prior to the elections.

01-10-2008, 10:55 PM
I watched Fox back when the other news stations were fans of Clinton. I hated Bill Clinton then as much as I hate George Bush now.

01-10-2008, 10:56 PM
Because with a few beers I could imagine it is an all day version of the Colbert Report.

01-10-2008, 11:00 PM
I swear Fox started the shift to hot reporters and anchors. I knew they were biased before I went in though so I listened to Democracy now when I was in the car to balance it out.

To be honest I haven't trusted any major media outlet for quite a long time. Once you know and are looking for the subtle propoganda messages that are put into the broadcasts to shape public opinion, you will find more truth on the internet. Every mass media station has some kind of agenda they want to push, they might not be all lock step togather, although sometimes they are..

I didnt start watching cable news until after sept 11th 2001.

Oh how i wish i never started. I use to just enjoy my local news and paper. Now my blood pressure goes sky high.

01-10-2008, 11:06 PM
I am young and I agree, they do make you feel powerful and right.

But boy oh boy. Now I KNOW I'm right.

01-10-2008, 11:14 PM
Because I can't stand democrats and still can't.

I"m with you on that one but I never could stand FAUX NEWS either.

Paulitical Correctness

The bitches.

Fox & Friends.

And yeah..being a braindead moron didn't help much either.

What I've noticed about Fox News... is that they are Very good at hyping a story.... and then leaving you hanging at a commercial break. And carrying the story throughout the entire day to fill time.

No matter how useless the news story is... Ana Nicole Smith... a missing woman in Aruba etc... They will sell it like it's the most important thing in your life... and you don't wanna miss it!... coming up... right after this commercial break.

And they hammer away 24 hours a day...

I haven't had tv for a few years now... but I'll go visit my parents... and My father will be watching Fox New.. not really even conscience of what or why he's watching it.... just because they are so sensational.... He'll get caught up in some useless news story about nothing of any substance... just because they string you along all day...

Though they didn't pioneer the 24hr a day News Station... I think they've certainly mastered it in terms of keeping you in suspense.. and making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Fascinating thread, being right can sometimes be painful.

01-10-2008, 11:30 PM
I'm being serious, even as a 14/15 year old kid, I knew ALL the stations were full of shit. It was pretty fucking obvious. I think a lot of people were a little naive and a little dumb falling for it hook, line and sinker. Even when things may not have sit right with them, the cognitive dissonance kicked in, so the kept watching it.

Sorry guys it was obvious from the start. Even a little kid could see that.

01-10-2008, 11:33 PM
i was 18 and not sure what was left and right

01-10-2008, 11:38 PM
I started watching Fox during the Katrina tradegy in New Orleans. I was drawn to Shepard Smith's compassion. Other than that I didn't bother watching it at all. I prefer Lou Dobbs and I watch Oberman for the humor and his slams on BillO.

It occured to me tonight just how flashy Fox is. The Star Spangled Banner song was so Miss America pagent looking. Flash, flash, sequine, flash, bleached teeth, flash, flash, I feel pretty, oh so pretty....

after 9-11 i was brainwashed...

now i am part of the 9-11 truth movement
