    I always find it funny how Fox News will give one truthful narrative and then MSNBC will mirror it with the lying narrative. The most recent example of this is this:

    Fox News does a story about Obama's flip flopping over the years on gay marriage and they give concrete examples.

    Obama's past statements on same-sex marriage | Fox News

    And then MSNBC does a pretend story about how Romney has supposedly changed his stance on gay marriage.

    Romney's evolving views on gay rights - Video on msnbc.com

    The article was a bunch of garble; hard to believe that the person that wrote it could call himself a professional journalist/editor.

    And watching the video; they point to a general quote of Mitt Romney seeking rights for gays as somehow proof that he's flip flopped on gay marriage. Seriously; if I was liberal, it would bother me how they blatantly lie. Does that not bug you libs. That hurts your cause. I'd hate for my liberal network to be playing to the loons like that.

    Fox News and MSNBC both do this.

    They are opinion stations, not news outlets.

    You do understand the difference?

    Check Rush's program. Listen to him carefully. When he attacks the left, notice he mirrors with what the left can fairly attack him. Olbermann pulls the same crap.

    It's about ratings, TGG.

    wow you really got him now.

    Everyone knows NO ONE on earth has ever gone back and forth in their decision making on this issue.

    Oh wait, that is right, all those polls over the years show the American people themselves slowly struggling with this issue and doing just about the same dance Obama has done to grasp the issue.


    Dont worry Robmoney has plenty of flip flops for you to examine and talk about.

    will Fox be doing those one by one now?

    And here we have the proof that critical thinking skills are no longer being taught in our schools.

    Good God. Fox viewers were recently exposed by a college study as being dumber about the news than people that watched no news at all. HOW COULD THAT BE? Unless the viewers are being lied to by the FOX hosts?

    It sounds to me like they both struggled with this issue and have played to the crowd on it.

    Romney said he'd be better on gay rights than Ted Kennedy, presided over the first state to legalize gay marriage, and then started engaging in the homophobia when he ran for president.

    Obama has also switched back and forth.

    My own view is that it should be legalized, but legalized the right way, which is after you change laws through the legislative process.

    By 2020, it will be legal in all 50 states, and by 2030, people will wonder what all the fuss was about.

    Forgive me but your seriously not trying to defend one News entertainment network as being a News source over another one? For every story there is another. want some examples, just type Fox News apologizes in Google or replace that with MSNBC and you will soon find that the word News does not apply and entertainment is better description for what they do. An even better example, would be the qualifications of some of its hosts Sean Hannity comes to mind or perhaps Greg Gutfeld from The Five, did you know that two of those hosts are from that bastion of liberalism UC Berkley and that one of them is an Atheist? While not normally an indicator of what a person will do as a host, it does seem sort of interesting that they are considered expert enough to be seen as a competent source on others who are vastly more qualified than they are. This same thing applies to MSNBC and a whole host of these other types of shows that hold themselves up to be sources of News, when they are sources of entertainment yes, News no. so to compare one to the other is much like saying the Red Car is in the Race is better than the Blue one because it's Red without taking the time to notice they are both in the race.

    But guys.....FOX is the ONLY SOURCE for televised news that isn't skewed.....they say so themselves....Fair and Balanced! If you a right wing freak.

    It's not their fault that a bunch of dumb fucks can't recognize a advertising slogan when they see it and accept the same as gospel.

    Looks to me like someone who's position on gay marriage has evolved

    My own views have also evolved like most americans.
