    Fox News' Eric Bolling: 'I Don't Remember' Any Terrorist Attacks On America During President Bush's Term (VIDEO)

    "America was certainly safe between 2000 and 2008," he said. "I don't remember any attacks on American soil during that period of time." Nobody on the panel challenged this comment.

    I know 9/11 was a small event, you know... only 3000 people or so being killed, but come on! What a fucking moron! Please, please, please let this investigation into Murdoch be the end of Faux News!

    And there was the Beltway sniper (just because he wasn't a Muslim doesn't mean he wasn't a terrorist) and the Shoe Bomber (Richard Reid).

    Memory problems?

    Well I'm going to get my panties in a bunch over this one, I'm sure of it.

    One PERSON says something on a program and it's ALL FOX news fault.

    see how that works folks.:lol:

    …and the anthrax attack on members of Congress...

    But that’s really not the point:

    Your being a blind partisan has obviously effected your ability to comprehend. The issue isn’t what one person said on Fox, but the network’s failure to admonish the speaker or otherwise correct the intentional deception.

    But that’s not surprising given Fox rarely deals in facts.

    You have to remember two things about the Bush Presidency

    1. He kept us safe from 2002-2009, you are not allowed to bring up 2001

    2. He had a strong economy from 2001 to 2007, you are not allowed to look at 2008

    LOL, I guess the NETWORK should just cut right in there and "ADMONISH" the person.
    Funny, but I don't see PMSNBC or ANY news stations doing that when their idiot talking head tells a flat out lie or says something stupid..
    man oh man, admonish the person...:lol::lol::lol:

    Can you PRESENT an incident of msnbc doing this?

    I await your evidence. I wager you'd have miles and miles of evidence based on your accumulated posts.

    not playing your game. you want to try and say they have never lied or said anything stupid, have at it. The majority of the people disagree with you, that is why their ratings are in the crapper..:lol:

    Huffington Post. Might've known. Hey, have they ever showed a mistake by anyone over at MSNBC? Probably not, but hey, honest mistakes by MSNBC don't count.
