    I was watching Hannity & Colmes and they had a crackpot College Professor on who wants to teach students the government brought down the twin towers in a controlled demolition.
    The liberal is Prof James Fetzer and he "teaches" at Univ of MN. He has setup a group called "Scholars for 9/11 Truth"
    It made me wonder about the talking points of libs who say Fox News is all conservative all the time
    Fox News has MORE libs on then the number of conservatives on CNN and MSNBC, COMBINED

    The other night they had Sean's old college professor on, and all he wanted to talk about was that the last two elections were stolen. What a stupid jerk! Makes one wonder what this man reads on a daily basis--probably nothing to be so ignorant of established facts.

    Fox cable programming is doing the public a service by having these nitwits on and exposing the real intelligence of these academic "intellectual elites".

    Why do you think libs hate Fox so much?

    Fox allows the left to say what they REALLY think

    It's not only Fox that the libs hate; they hate all conservative news sources because they are capturing the audience that the MSM has held captive for far too long...and let's not overlook the fact that the conservative news sources tell quite a different story than the MSM. Competition has entered the news arena big time, and the controlling libs do not like that one little bit.

    These are the only "liberals" Fox News allows to speak: the crackpots. They don't allow intelligent, moderate liberals on their shows (unless in the case of Alan Colmes you pair him with a much better looking, louder and more powerful conservative), and when an intelligent liberal does happen to get on, they simply shout them down. Fox News is the most biased news organization in this country. Watch the documentary "Outfoxed" which uses internal memos showing how Fox manipulates its "news" coverage.

    I did watch "Outfoxed," which is a crock of bullcrap. Most of it was just a bunch of blanket accusations with little to no proof so that a bunch of self-righteous liberals could point and say, "See, there's your bias."

    Then there's E.D. Hill, one of the most outspoken people on the Fox News channel and, guess what, a liberal. She, like Zell Miller and the throng of Democrats that have left the party of kooks, despises the modern Democrat and wants a return to their base values. I've heard her arguing quite vehemently with O'Reilly, Hannity, Cavuto, and many others. Then there's the fact that she's better looking than any of them.

    I also know that it's not just kooks on there. Hannity and O'Reilly have had Democratic senators and spokesmen on there a number of times, and they let them talk, too. The only time they get shouted down is when they go off on a five minute monologue and the guy who, you know, runs the show wants to refute some point the guy has made. I guess it looks biased when you compare it to Larry King, who lets anybody ramble on and on throughout the entire interview without so much as a challenge.

    And then there's the fact that Fox News is the highest rated news channel in the country now, and the other stations are finally allowing conservatives on their stations to try to regain market share and recoup their losses. You really think Glenn Beck would be on Headline News if Hannity wasn't pounding them on ratings?

    Do you want the long list of libs Fox has on? How about Bob Beckel, Juan Williams, Martin Frost, Mara Liason, and Ellen Ratner.

    These are hardly meek and mild libs.

    The people you have named aren't liberals, they are centrists being passed off as liberals. They agree with the right on 60-70% of the topics discussed. Half of Brit's panel, he has three people on his regular panel: Fred Barnes (conservative), Mort Kondracke (right-leaning centrist), and Juan Williams (left-leaning centrist).
