    This is what the Democratic Party has come to. Pretty sad. :(


    This month, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW) wrote to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski asking him to revoke the broadcasting licenses of Rupert Murdoch. A ban would include any and all news organizations affiliated with Murdoch’s umbrella organization, News Corp, which owns Fox News.

    .

    Here we go again. Gawd I hate this. Eliminate opposing speech.

    Just to add to it, they evidently think MSNBC is right on the money, objective as the day is long.

    What are they afraid of? Never mind. The answer is clear.

    GE/NBC and this President have been in bed since day one. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that. GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, his 'Jobs Czar?' What a scam.

    Ah, more hate and fear. It's never pretty no matter what the source.

    The lefty mainstream news can't stand that Fox reports on news that they don't want the public to know about.It's the alternative reporting that the left calls lies,when they aren't.
    One recent example was this lady on MSNBC that said Fox reported on AZ. wanting Hawaii to verify Obama's birth certificate. She said it wasn't news worthy and that the report was a lie. Never mind that it is in all of the local news and newspaper's in AZ. She doesn't think that the rest of the nation should have alternative sources of news. Talk about totalitarian mentality.
    They must be shut down,so that the mainstream news can control us and what they deem worthy news, in what we should or should not know.
    The left hate freedom of speech.

    Fox is good entertainment but they DO cater to the lowest of the low lying fruit in America. It is a sad statement on America that their ratings remain so high.

    They certainly blur the line between opinion and fact and they do it very subtly by distracting with a lot of bling....glitzy sets and backgrounds, sound effects, short, oft-repeated soundbites, and so on.

    If you look carefully the FOX News experience is not too much unlike a trip to Wal-Mart (yuck!)

    In a "perfect" world I suppose there wouldn't have to even be a discussion about "censoring" FOX because consumers would do it naturally through the free market in their demand for QUALITY.

    Yet....FOX endures. They point to their "high" rating as proof of (ahem) quality.

    Kinda like Wal-Mart cites their status as the nation's largest retailer as THEIR proof of "quality" when we all know better!

    It's an indication of how truly, truly evil the left is. If they could, they would go around rounding up political dissenters and hanging them in the public square.
