    So I turn on FOX last night, after watching non-stop coverage on the terrorist attempt on CNN, and Bill O was conducting some kind of game show with other FOX host on celebrity spouses. Then I turned FOX on later and they were covering Charlie Sheene and another domestic violence arrest. This morning they were covering health care reform.

    Finally, they interview the internationally famous terrorism expert, Karl "I helped a Chimp be elected" Rove. His insight was just sooo deep.

    Is it just me or is FOX trying to ignore a failed terrorism attempt. Had he been successful, FOX would be trumpeting the news! :eusa_eh:

    And if Fox News had covered it as extensively as CNN, they would have been accused of "fear mongering". Everybody's a critic. :cool:

    Had he been successful, it would have been non-stop coverage. or as you said, fear mongering.

    That would certainly be bigger news than Michael Jackson. I'm getting on a plane tomorrow out of Phila. which is a security nightmare on a good day.

    It appears the the media, on both sides, has become as cut throat as any politician. If there is an advantage to be made, they will make it.

    Fox covered it when it was breaking news...CNN didn't pick it up until it was old hat....too bad you are too fucking stupid to tune in to news when it's actually happening.

    Of course they did! Then when they found it is was a failure, they started showing Bill O, the pervert, and his silly game show. Karl Rove, the terrorism expert! :lol:

    I suppose you wanted the device to work right you sick fuck? Just so you could start a thread about how Fox would be fear mongering by covering it 24/7.

    Grow up!
