    Where’s Mark2? Sara Bibel is posting another article that doesn’t bash Fox News. How dare she do such a thing. :grin:

  • Mark2

    Here I am.

    OMFG!!! Are you serious?! Fox News is actually going to cover the Presidential Election?! Wow, that’s really a Newsflash. I would’ve never guessed in a million years. I wonder if CNN and MSNBC are going to cover the Presidential Election?

    LMAO. Seriously, this is not news. This is an advertisement.

    @Hillbilly: It is wrong for Sara to lend her byline to an FNC News Release. That is why there have been biased complaints made, thinking TV-by-the-numbers is favoring Fox. You’ll see more NBC News Releases, particularly in the Late-Night weekly ratings. Maybe CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC and other nets carrying the debates will have THEIR own publicity releases.

    It’s happened again! Someone forgot to tell us what is airing from 8:00-8:55pm Monday night. It’s The O’Reilly Factor time period but I think the Baier/Kelly coverage may be in that spot. But, leaving blank the 8-8:55pm block is a mistake.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Mark2: As a Christian, like folks from other religions and faiths, I am highly offended by the use of “OMFG.” If you’re a believer or not, please have the sense not to use this again because it’s pretty offensive to those who believe in One God. I’m not talking about “religious insults.” This obscene remark goes to very core of my “faith.” Thank you.

  • b

    This is actually rather courteous of FOX to do this….now CNN and MSNBC can ACT NOW and avoid losing money by showcasing what’s been happening lately inside Corcoran State Prison….

  • Mark2

    Hey Ralph, since you brought religion into the discussion, I guess I can tell you that as a non-religious American Citizen and that I don’t care if you’re offended by OMFG. Freedom of Speech rules!!!

  • Hillbilly

    Sara is fair & balanced.

    @Ralph Hahn

    My theory is Sara removes the “via press release” just to annoy Mark2. :lol:

  • Ralph Hahn

    Mark2: I asked nicely with “please” and I thanked you for your consideration in NOT using terms like “OMFG.” Go ahead and use it all you want. Everyone here is walking away from you already. Go ahead and p!$$ off other people of faith. Obviously, you’re a (k)nucklehead because I did not bring up RELIGION. Faith is our personal relationship with God. Religion is belonging to a particular church or sect. Maybe you’re not an atheist or agnostic, just a d-bag. But, after asking nicely and getting slapped in the face about “Freedom of Speech,” I think you just killed any credibility you ever had here insulting people of faith.

    Everyone should condemn you for that, s-bag. And, don’t attempt to call me a hypocrite. True Christians admit that we are sinners but ask God for forgiveness and we are redeemed. . God forgive me.

  • Doug Z

    Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill’s husband used the U.S. Senate Dining Room to cut business deals selling tax credits tied to stimulus money, a whistle-blowing executive inside his company alleged on an audio recording exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller.

    St Louis Post-Dispatch does not cover.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Hillbilly: As an old former news guy, it offends me as well. You don’t include your byline if you’re just reporting a news release. If people hate what is written, they’re going to blame the person who has his/her byline at the top.

    BTW, for those who STILL thinks that this site is biased toward Fox, there’s the debate coverage schedule that’s been released by Current TV, Al Gore’s latest invention. Forget MSNBC & CNN. You can’t go any further left than Current TV.

    @Ralph “Everyone should condemn you for that, s-bag. And, don’t attempt to call me a hypocrite.”

    You’re a worse hypocrite than I thought. Typical Christian who complains about someone cursing and then curses themselves. Go read some scriptures and wash your mouth out with some soap. LMAO

  • Mark2

    I’ll keep you in my prayers Ralphie.

  • Mark

    Isn’t this the same lineup they have for every debate?

  • Sam

    This cite is certainly a cheerleader to Fox News . Any news of what Hannity had for breakfast today ?

  • Hillbilly

    If you notice FNC rarely has a press release (on this site) saying we beat CNN & MSNBC in this that or the other. If memory serves me right the “blue people” just copy & paste what they get from the network. Maybe FNC doesn’t have “via press release” on the things they send out. Just a theory to consider.

  • Mark

    @Hillbilly

    The only problem I have with this press release it’s like putting out a press release that the sun will rise tomorrow

  • Ralph Hahn

    Mark2: I called you a couple of street-swears. YOU insulted my faith as well as the faith of most of the people who live in this country. It is always the Godless who call Christians or other people strong in their faith “hypocrites.” I already admitted that then asked for forgiveness. I tried to get one more word past the censor, but it refused to print my original response to the omfg remark.

    You are dead to me. No further dealings with you directly. You have no regard nor respect for people who believe in God.

    Anyone of faith, a believer in God who is shocked to see the ‘F’ word used before God, should condemn you as well.
