    Especially the way Faux practices it...

    Today, we're treated to the sight of these supposed "journalists" shilling for a right wing event (the Tax Day "Tea Party"), rather than reporting on it, which is their job...

    Tell me again how this "fair and balanced" network is not a propaganda front for the right wing of the GOP... they don't REPORT on the news, they try to MAKE it...

    On an unrelated note, I see where ol' Rick Perry has joined the Chuck Norris Traitor's Club, advocating that Texas secede from the Union... Gawd, those right wingers, they sure do love their country... so much so that any time their country does something they don't much care for, they start talking about breaking up the Union...

    It really is strange, the right tells us how Obama is going to destroy our country, yet THEY'RE the ones who are talking about seceding from the Union...

    :D

    oh yeah, like CNN and MSNBC are so fair, they couldnt stop falling over themselves when the words Barak Obama came up. Get over yourself SB, you are better than this.

    Rick Perry has been a corporate shill for years. His current political grandstanding has taken him right to the borderline of sedition - and the prospect of calling Calderon "daddy".

    I don't think anyone is fooled by Fox News' claims to be "Fair and Balanced." Just like no one is fooled by the MSNBC anchor who said they had no left leaning tilt.

    As opposed to supposed "journalists" shilling for the left wing rather than doing their job... I trust you saw the CNN coverage?

    Tell me again how this "legitimate news" network is not a propaganda front for the left wing of the Democrats... they don't REPORT on the news, they try to MAKE it...

    Texas will never secede, but at least they have the ballage to call out this overbearing government which has been oppressing this country with taxes since WWII...

    They have more liberals on Foxnews than any of the others have conservatives. They present both sides. And THAT makes them not fair in your opinion. The idiocy of those kinds of remarks with prove that you yourself are more biased than any foxnews could ever be. Why? Because you NEVER present the other side of a story, just your leftist propaganda.

    You wouldn't know fair and balanced if it bit you in the face. And now we see how afraid you are of one news outlet that actually covered something that as it turns out waas a pretty big deal nationwide. So the ones that look foolish are you and the ones who refuse to give it any credibility.

    You can at least call him by his proper name Governor Good Hair. Yes he has been a corporate shrill and knuckle head. He was about no voted out of the Republican primary the last time he ran for office. Him and Duhurst have sucked eggs. The new Texas business tax law he pushed threw is in the stages of trying to be fixed by Senator Dan Patrick it was so badly done . Lets not talk about Good Hair and Fred Hill couhg cough Dallas area trying to require the HPV vaccine (yep the drug companies) plus he supported Fred Hills tax break for the drug companies yet Fred Hill denied a cap on home owners taxes.

    Yep Good hair had to make a good impression and granstand after his last two years of being kicked around by the Houston voters

    That does not make what happen today any less important in fact Perry showing up was a surprise to me because of how he is sometimes.

    yea, they should have just threatened to move to another country when they don't get their way instead. that's the proven road to things like this.

    And that you actually believe Fox lives up to their ridiculous claim of "Fair and Balanced" somehow qualifies you as an expert re "credibility"? Mmm-kay.

    Again, since they are not a arse kissing your left wing nut jobs they are not fair. You are simply one of those that are blind. But we are used to that.

    Yeah, they are. It's obvious. Any dissent against their lunatics and they get nervous. The truth will do that to people.

    Yep.

    They call them out.

    Then they head to the polls and vote Republican, as if Republicans will bring about "small gov't", "low taxes", and "fiscal responsibility."

    LOL....

    They *****... .then do the exact opposite... and accomplish nothing.

    And I'm supposed to give them kudos? LOL.... ok....

    Fox News is no worse than CNN.

    Which makes it NewsGodAwesome to the conservatives in here.

    The actual NEWS delivered on MSNBC, Fox, Cnn, etc. is all fairly unbiased. Its these stupid ******** POS newsmagazine shows like Obermann, OReilly, Hannity, Lou Dobbs, etc. that drag the networks down and drowns them in accusations of bias.

    MSNBC is a lot more liberal than CNN. MSNBC is more of a fair comparison to Fox, I think.
