But I also believe in UFOs.
I wish I could be like Obama and get paid thousands of dollars to be a dumbass.
Life’s not fair sometimes.
Old white people are drowning in despair and rage. Here’s how my father lost his mind — thanks to his cable diet
I feel this is a really important article. There are so many of us on this site that truly hate Fox News with a lot of good reason. There are so many of us that have broken, jagged relationships with the older generations because we don’t tolerate the fear, lies, and hatred that comes from Fox News. If any of you have felt this, please read this. It’s a very real problem that hasn’t been able to get much attention because of a strong vein of denial.
Back in late 2000 Hannity and Colmes had on members of some liberal organization that thought Fox News should be censored. When Colmes (the liberal) asked the guests for specific instances that gave offense the guests gave vague generalizations like the ones iamtherealalice lists above.
When pressed for SPECIFIC examples they finally admitted the never watched a minute of Fox News in their lives. Even Colmes didn’t suffer those fools after they admitted that.
One time I posted a video to my personal Facebook wall from the O’Reilly Factor and liberal friends who disliked/hated Bill O’Reilly also admitted it was the only 8 minutes they’d ever seen of his show. To make such judgments without knowing the source is simply astonishing and disturbing (sorry, is that too fearful and hateful?).
I suspect (and am sure I’m right) that this is true with the overwhelming majority of Fox News haters.
I would love to see reblogs with personal eye witness accounts of “fear” and “lies” and “hatred.” Not links from propagandist organizations such as Media Matters (which should/will be summarily discarded), but personal accounts from the concern trolls who actually do watch the network.
