    Kendall,

    I agree with you to a point. The small difference is that if Fox does not report bad news it sometimes does not go reported at all (or not very much) on the MSM. If MSNBC misses something bad for R’s I think there is a better chance someone else will report it.

    Obama’s 2nd inauguration drew 4 million more hhs and 5 million more viewers than W’s 2nd … now which one was the unpopular president?

    Naturally FNC viewers tuned out. They only want to hear conspiracy theories and nothing but bad things about democrats all day long so why would they even turn on the set yesterday? The average Fox viewer (a.k.a. “sheep”) only watches their so-called “news” channel of choice because it always tells them exactly what they want to hear and confirms everything they already believe! They don’t want news, they only want to hear from someone else who agrees with them and nothing more. That’s why the fox fans posting here like Ralph and Ratboy really believe Obama’s so unpopular … after all, their talking heads tell them so day in and day out so why wouldn’t they believe it? That’s the reason FNC is no longer having the effect it once had. These days, they are only preaching to the choir and no one else.

    Lance,
    Enjoyed your commentary. Welcome and please be sure to stay.

  • Jeff

    @raz, bite me! I’m a child you say? Because I don’t belong to the suck on the Fox nipple club of misinformation, Awe Darn!

    You also say I make no sense? I’m sure there’s an app for your comprehension problem.

  • Bobbyv

    Lance,

    Do you think that if Fox did not present the negative stories in the Democrats, which they do, no arguement, the rest of the media would do it. You demonstrated Fox’s bias, what about everyone else?

  • Bobbyv

    On the Democrats

  • Jeff

    Funny how the truth is just “bias” to Fox-tards.

  • Mark2

    I almost feel sorry for Fox news… They got their butts handed to them by everybody. That’s just plain embarrassing.

  • Mark2

    Those Republicans were no match for Hillary Clinton today.

    She made them look like amateurs.

  • Mark2

    So much for Benghazi-gate…lol.

    Hillary 2016!!!

  • Bobbyv

    Right Jeff. To quite the immortal Gabe (among others):

    Name calling is the last refuge of the scoundrel. It usually indicates the inability to defend a position.

  • Bobbyv

    Quote, not quite, I’m bad tonight

  • Brian

    @mark

    Why is it so hilarious that 4 people were killed and nobody is doing anything about it. The fact that you are HAPPY or relieved that the repubs succumbed to the political motivations of this admin and this media is staggeringly shallow. It shouldn’t matter what party is in the WH when something like that happens people should be held accountable. When it comes down to it, the DOS was INCOMPETENT. It doesn’t need to be a scandal or a political dog and pony show like the repubs made it, or a cover up like the dems made it. You obviously are no better than people you rail against anonymously on this site.

  • eggmanbill

    I Just hope the Senate and Congress are as concerned about the 20 little children that took 150 bullets in their tiny little bodies as they are with 4 Americans killed in a war zone. We shell see!!!!!!!!1

  • Jeff

    One dumb@ass GOP Senator (Rand Paul) asked about weapons being shipped to Turkey from Syria…

    Where did he hear that lie?

    Fox News!

    Another dumb@ss GOP Rep. asked about the “live video feed” of the attack in Benghazi….

    Where did he get that idea?

    Hannity via Fox News!

    Hillary did a masterful job in front of the circus act from the GOP idiots today. What’s even more brilliant is that the neo-con extremist know it, their brains are strained acting as if she didn’t have information today. Truth doesn’t compute in the mind of a Foxtard.
