Stance against Fox News is disturbing

  • Follow Letters

President Obama is treading on dangerous ground. Using a high- handed tactic such as dismissing Fox News as not being a "real news network" should raise the concern of all Americans.

Picking and choosing which networks are given access to the president is un-American and censorship in its truest form. Controlling the media that disagree with your actions is the forte of such leaders as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.

It is refreshing to see the other networks realize that if they reported stories that were unflattering to the administration, then they too could be branded as not being a "real news network." If you can do it to one, you can do it to all.

They should pay as well. And

They should pay as well. And keep paying until they realize that they can still afford a smaller home in order to live comfortably. Being greedy and showing off has no party affiliation. And facts, when W told everyone to go shopping when he should have been saving up for a war was that smart too? Don't think so. But people will have to turn around and save now because they've been living high on the hog and did not have the money to really do that. I quit feeling sorry for people like that. Greed is the real nature of the problems that we have today.

It is irritating when

It is irritating when rightwingers change the channel at the Augusta VA Medical Centers wating rooms to Fox News. The knuckledraggers lack the courtesy to ask other patients if they mind.

There is irony involved with vets watching Fox at the VA. First, VA healthcare is socialized medicine that works very well. Nobody is forced to use the VA. Everyone who works there is a government employee or a volunteer. Next, I can't think of a single Fox News host or anchor who served in the active duty military. Hannity, O'Really and Beck are chickenhawks who love the military but not enough to have served themselves.

apex24 says that Al Gore's

apex24 says that Al Gore's home is 25,000 sq ft. If you Google it you'll find that it's 10,000 sq ft. By the way, Gore made most of his money as a consultant and board member at Google and Apple. How's W's motivational speaking gig going?

Contrary to popular belief,

Contrary to popular belief, high amounts of government spending, when coupled with lower taxes, increases the economy's aggregate demand, and as a result, the overall GDP.

I agree with Niko. Anyone

I agree with Niko. Anyone that makes over $30k/yr should give everything to the government to be redistributed by those that know better how to spend the money they earned. That's some really good incentive program. I know I sure want to live in Niko's fantasy world.

Too funny noils, or justus or

Too funny noils, or justus or dental student or what ever crazy think tank you belong to. It's humorous to read the posts of you government school graduates. They're all the same. "Gore invented the internet so it's only natural google and apple would pay him multimillions to advise them". I still think the "Bush sent Katrina to New Orleans" is your funniest belief, but your mantra of turning your head away from anyone that tells you the truth reflects most on your fine "education". Chuckle on all of you easily fooled "citizens" Obama supporters wear the mark. One post and it's easy to read.

When the obamanites feel the

When the obamanites feel the real affects of bho they might wake up and realize what kind of thug they put in office. O'Reilly and a few others said it best, people are more concerned with what's happening on American Idol than what's going on in the government of their country. I pray everyday that bho fails. I thank God for FOX news!

He has already failed. Not

He has already failed. Not one promise he has made has been fulfilled. He has just one other thing for him to do. Take the original copies of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the American Flag out to the front yard of the White House and burn them.

I live on 1800.00 a month, so

I live on 1800.00 a month, so to all those who make more, I can give you an address to send a check to even things out. I am not stupid enough to think Obama intends to help the poor, he has shown the opposite intentions. Jobs will grow by the end of 2010? With all those billions of stimilus money? Business as usual with politicians...

When Rush Limbaugh and all

When Rush Limbaugh and all the other talk radio nuts, say that Fox News is the only one that will tell you the truth, is nothing but "BULL". Since Rush, the family value man is the leader of the Republicians and love by Fox News maybe President Obama should stay away.

Augusta has a "little Rush" family value man on the radio!

Obama is borderline violating

Obama is borderline violating the constitution and he knows it along with the other media networks. That's exactly why CNN, MSNBC, and the rest, stepped up to the plate and said if Foxs News was not allowed to be involved in the pool they would not participate either. I can't believe these crazy people voted this guy in office! Not sure why he thinks he's KING Obama. If Bush had pulled this on MSNBC all hell would have broken loose! Next, I wouldn't be surprised if you have a political bumper sticker on your car that criticizes KING Obama you'll be fined!

I'm not sure why anyone is

I'm not sure why anyone is even arguing the fact of whether or not Fox News is telling "lies". The point is that in America, we have something called freedom of the press.

And one last post to 0430...I am a republican and I don't even listen to Rush...that's the "pack of lies" you've heard on MSNBC or CNN. liberals love to say that we are just a herd following Rush. I guarrantee that at least half of all republicans don't even listen to him! Maybe you should get your facts straight befor eyou just repeat what you've heard.

Assistant, you've got to admit that you have been guilty of childish posting as well. And Niko does call names and insult people who don't share is opinion. Rarely if ever does Tigger do that.
