One good reason not to trust Fox News
Daily Inter Lake [Kalispell, MT], by Frank Miele

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, and the same thing goes for Al Gore and Rupert Murdoch, right?I wrote a column recently excoriating Al Gore for selling his Current TV cable channel to Al Jazeera, the Arabic news broadcast company based in Qatar.It isn’t just that Al Jazeera is Arabic, but rather that it is a mouthpiece for the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist causes.Turns out that the new Al Jazeera America may not be the only problem, however. An interview with columnist Diana West on the website www.radicalislam.org has pointed to Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News

I knew bin Talal had a chunk of Fox, but not that Murdoch had a chunk of his company.

I´d noticed a long time ago that Fox News soft-peddles the Islamic terrorism angle of most news stories.

If you want the whole story, don´t expect Fox News to give it to you.

My problem with Fox is they have too many liberal commentators in the name of "fair and balanced". Try to find a liberal who thinks they fit that description,no matter how many leftists they have on there.


Since I don´t watch network news or CNN or MSNBC,I don´t know how many right wingers they have on their payrolls but if they do,they´re in the back room sweeping floors.

In other words trying to placate the left by hiring some of their biggest loons,doesn´t buy them an ounce of love from the left.

Murdock is a suspicious character and when he kicks the bucket his son will be just as bad,if not worse.

By tiptoeing around the terrorists, we embolden them. We underestimate the horror that we are inviting.

One might think it is just the invasion of our cities and some sort of actual war against Islam in the future. That is already baked in, my friends. What we don´t think about is that the response of the West...when it finally comes....will be brutal, harsh, and necessarily genocidal. It will be us and them, and when the West realizes this as they find themselves involved in streetfighting, their AR-15 against their AK, then the only good Muslim will be a dead Muslim. Genocide of the Muslims will be....the plan.

That is why we must put them back in their cage, back in the own countries, under governors from the West who will rule them without mercy whenever they try their 7th century stuff out on each other.

It would really be great if there was a true 100% conservative TV network. Fox always tones down the conservative POV in order to be ´fair and balanced´ which isn´t that at all.

It´s more about the money than the politics or the philosophy but either way, it´s bad news.

The day will come shortly when capital punishment will once again be legal in all states. The method will be by beheading in the public square.

Perhaps then the liberals will be happy, the Katie Courics, the John Kerrys, and the Chrissy Mathewses.

I used to prefer FOX---which is like saying which of a litter of birth-deformed, stillborn puppies is the cutest. I cancelled TV entirely last November as the only way I could hit back at the evil, biased media that help put the Tyrant Hussein into dear leader status. By placing outright lies side by side with truth, even FOX was massaging, or spinning the story. I submit a term for the whole rotten news business: The "Spindustry". They are the visible tip of the thought control spear.

Amen, #6. In addition, the number of people who trust Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, et al for ´news´ is frightening. Probably most dangerous of all, since these clowns´ edginess adds credibility in their viewers´ minds.

Once you roll over to a known radical, violent movement such as Islam- letting lithping leftiths fill your screen pales by comparison I guess.
Thanks for posting this. Reinforces my 3 year ban of Fox. I will drop in occasionally for Neil Cavuto´s show on satellite radio but , like #6 and 7, I also pulled the plug on cable last year.

We either have an open marketplace for ideas or we don´t. Many people believe that the other party´s ideas are deadly. Who will decide who gets to speak ??? Al Jazirra will have a chance to test it´s ideas in the American marketplace. Informational prohibition is a more dangerous idea than Islam. We must not embrace information control in the name of promoting liberty.

I have found myself enjoying Dog the Bounty Hunter re-runs, when I actually turn on the tv. With the DVR, I can buzz right through the commercials. Mindless entertainment for sure, however, I will be prepared for the next election as a low/no information voter...never thought it would come down to this.

There are very few people that can watch TV objectively, including me. Whenever Obama comes on it turns my stomach and I switch channels. I do watch AlJazeera[sp] as some of it is actual news as they broadcast Israeli stations also. I like to know how other nations view the Middle East situation, but one does have to realize where the news is coming from. If you can´t do that, don´t watch it.

The freedom not to question climate change

The campaign to marginalize conservatives and their traditional values has many facets.Last week, we talked about the efforts in academia to restrict access to people whose beliefs are not in tune with modern liberalism, but that is just one small component of an ongoing multi-front war.Today, let’s focus on climate change and the effort by the left to lull you into peaceful acquiescence of a world view that will allow “people smarter than you” to make massive changes in our economy in order to protect you from an impending crisis.

What is it about liberals that makes them so afraid of free speech, free thought and free expression of ideas, especially on college campuses? You may have heard about the absolute terror which faculty and students at Rutgers University greeted the news that former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had been chosen as the commencement speaker at this May’s graduation ceremony. [SNIP]Conservatives, meanwhile, seem to be able to cope with the idea that liberals have differing opinions without trying to burn them at the academic stake. Take, for instance, the March 7 announcement that Montana State University in Bozeman

The best show on TV last week wasn’t “The Walking Dead.” It wasn’t “Downton Abbey.” And it sure wasn’t “The Academy Awards.” [SNIP] No matter what else she has done before, or does after, former RT-America anchorwoman Liz Wahl should always be remembered and thanked for telling the truth about “the enemy within.” Wahl had spent the last two weeks feeding the Kremlin’s propaganda to her gullible American TV audience about the Ukrainian uprising and the Russian occupation of Crimea. But finally, she couldn’t ignore her conscience any longer, so she looked straight into the camera and told her Russian bosses to

You have to hand it to Nancy Pelosi: She was dead-on accurate when she claimed Congress had to pass Obamacare before we would find out what was in it. The latest case in point is the “Shared Responsibility Payment,” which appears in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but hasn’t been widely appreciated for its Orwellian genius until the IRS started to promote it this year. The “Shared Responsibility Payment” is the penalty U.S. citizens have to fork over to their federal overlords if they fail to accede to the government’s order that they purchase health insurance for themselves

Chalk one up for the good guys — well, sort of. After a week of mockery, derision, and disdain, the Federal Communications Commission has announced that it won’t put observers in newsrooms after all. FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai’s op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Feb. 10 had alerted the public to the dangers of having government representatives querying news bosses about how they decide what stories to cover — and which ones not to cover. The implicit threat of such heavy-handed research is that the government could be on the verge of announcing that IT will decide what stories are important to

Just what we needed — another item to add to the ever burgeoning file labeled “Things that can’t possibly be true in America, but are anyway.” Consider this monstrosity: Our formerly constitutional government, in the form of the Federal Communications Commission, has developed a plan to put observers in the nation’s newsrooms in order to better understand “the process by which stories are selected.” Of course, they won’t just “understand” the process; they will most assuredly and dangerously alter it, merely by the implied threat of their presence in the formerly sacrosanct newsroom.

If the Super Bowl were what the average Washington pundit thinks politics is supposed to be, then we would have spent the past two weeks reading about how the two opposing teams were looking forward to working together for the common good in today’s game. Just as we are constantly being told to yearn for an era of post-partisan compromise in D.C., our football pundits would be talking about the need for ending the heated rivalries and bringing about an era of cooperation on the field of play!

There are some things about which I can take pleasure in saying, “I told you so,” but a nuclear Iran is not one of them. I first wrote about the slow but steady progress of Iran toward becoming a nuclear power in December 2007, and then followed up in 2010. The theme of both columns was the incredible naivete of the United States in accepting the reassuring words coming from Tehran about the Islamic republic’s nuclear intentions.In 2007, I disdainfully concluded, “if global geopolitics were a television sitcom, then the government of the United States would be Boss Hogg, and

One week before the 2012 election, as it stood apparent that President Obama would easily defeat challenger Mitt Romney, I wrote a column cautioning that re-election would not insulate the Obama administration from accountability for the massacre in Benghazi two months earlier.(SNIP]This week, we got a “long-delayed” bipartisan Senate report on Benghazi, and as a measure of just how meaningless the report is, consider this: It does not even name Hillary Clinton, the Cabinet officer who was responsible for security in Benghazi and who helped shift the blame to a “spontaneous” protest over a YouTube video

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
