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.

I guess TTT nobody can debate

I guess TTT nobody can debate issues of Sight & Sound which are part of the human senses. Words voicing hate instead of FACTS.

I guess you need to consider

I guess you need to consider if Obama is a REAL President before we even care that he classifies FOX as not being a real news network. Remember; Georgians did not elect this clown and the way this Country is heading that may become a real factor in how we are governed.

CobaltGeorge - Maybe what the liberals are listening to isn't FOX at all. Maybe they are listening to the voices in their heads. Maybe that is why it is so scary to them.

Tigger - You have to

Tigger - You have to understand that the people that got caught up into the lie of the last eight years will have to pay for them for at least ten years unless all is forgiven when they go to apply for credit, job, insurance, housing, and even utilities. That h*ll is going to be with them for awhile and nothing that this administration can do to take that away unless they put something in place for those people to really get back on their feet. If not, we all will continue to pay for their mistakes in listen to the none sense that the economy was okay and go out buy to your hearts are contempt. The economy was sucking during the Bush Administration of fake paper and false values. Yes, we do need a better foundation that this economy will not crash again to the depth of what has happened. Every 20 years we go through the same mess. FOX News help to play along with the false hope in the housing market. If people in the hood was buying that couldn't get their utilities paid, you knew something was wrong with that picture. The bankers lied. They had the money and the control of the money. It was their greed too. What happened then just don't go away overnight.

Bottom line.. Fox CRUSHES the

Bottom line.. Fox CRUSHES the competition in ratings. That alone says they are what most people either believe, or at least subscribe to, ideologically.Most of "flyover country" are sick of big city liberals telling them that they are rednecks, racists, bigots and homophobes just because they disagree with the Prez. Remember Hillary's famous," dissention is not unpatriotic" speech? But now when ANYONE.... especially Fox News questions or DARES to critique what Mr Obama et al do, the Libs want to shut them up. Sorry but last time I checked (so far anyway) there was still a first amendment to the Constitution.

You know niky, FOX is

You know niky, FOX is probably broken hearted that you hate FOX NEWS but probably don't care what you think. That's why they have that knob on the tv's - your choice. Still the same-o rhetoric with absolutely NO substance. We can always count on you for that.

Still it amazes me how Dems want to blame reporters (or a network) for their own misreading of the will of the American people. You think people don't like Fox News? What do polls say about their impressions of Congress right now? 2010 is going to be SO SWEET!!

It is a FACT that the POTUS' Party ALMOST always loses seats in Congress in the first midterm election after inauguration. The only question is how many.

Tigger - I am just jack2006

Tigger - I am just jack2006 not lib, rep, or independent. I am just jack2006. You have to know money to understand money and all the players involve in dealing with your money. You have to understand the games that they play with your money so that you just don't get caught behind the eight ball fooling with them. Who is hire to separate you and your money should be a question that you should ask yourself daily. Well, I don't think that you will ever understand so I just won't waste my time on that subject but a fool with money will always part ways. The walls started to crash the first year of Bush Administration. You did get your two checks from President Bush? I wonder why. The economy was bad and he was trying to stimulate the economy by giving you two checks. Do you remember? You were so terrified with fear preach to you on daily basis that you couldn't think or function on what was the truth or not. Fear and go buy was the answer. Give it to everybody so they won't know the truth. That economy was a failure waiting to happen in which it did. It will take some people awhile to recover and it won't happen overnight.

Sad for you George. I'm not the one running around with my tail between my legs. I'm not scared of daily events like most of the worry worts on this forum or their leadership radio EIB and TV Faux Noise. Keep looking at the big screen and bowing to your leadership.

The only bright spot in this

The only bright spot in this current situation is understanding that we had to have Jimmy Carter to get Ronald Reagan. So not only will 2010 be great but 2012 promises to be awesome.
Vive THAT revolution!

FOX News is the front-runner

FOX News is the front-runner of presenting the truth about our politics--and the present administration knows this. When wannabe dictators get into office, they first attack the news media; then the libraries (banning books, telling you what you can or cannot read); followed by the schools and social services. Even if you had an apple dumpling for a brain, you could figure out what the big O's intentions are. He needs to be impeached for failure to uphold the US Constitution, which is a direct violation of the Presidential Oath of Office.
