    Whenever important news is breaking I often switch between networks to see how the information is being presented. Tonight an important news conference occurred concerning Homeland security and Fox chose only to criticize the conference because none of the information was shocking in their estimation, and then while it was still in progress, switched to Glenn Beck, who only berated the Obama Administration about other issues including healthcare.

    Is this just biased partisanship or does this constitute a more traitorous attitude towards our Democratic way?

    Your kidding right?

    Glenn Beck has every right to berate the administration. Obama and the dems have been horrible for the country and FOX is the only station that is not in the tank for the administration.

    Not at all, there is a time for criticism, this wasn't it if you are concerned with the nation and its safety.

    Were Bush / Cheney horrible for the nation too?

    Bush / Cheney were doo doo.

    Problem with you is, you'll defend Obama with your last breath, no matter how bad he fucks up ......

    My criticisms of Obama are he too far right.

    Let's end the idiocy in Iraq and Afghanistan, let them build their own nation. Increased taxes on the wealthy, they waste it on trifles. Public option, if other industrial nations can do it why can't we. Gay marriage and gay rights, gonna happen anyway why be stupid and act like it ain't. Jobs programs, FDR looks better and better as time goes on. Bring back Glass Steagall, greed makes people stupid and dishonest. Union, unions and more unions support our people. Fair import rules with China and buy American.

    But seriously compared to Bush and draft dodger Dick he is at least a bit forward. He just ain't no FDR nor liberal enough for me.

    And Fox faux news is a total joke; anyone who can seriously watch Glenn Beck is retarded according to the last Rasmussen poll.

    Fox is an arm of the republican party.

    That is not news its propaganda.

    The rest of the TV news is corporate and will only present alternative views when it makes them money.

    I have been a little sick for awhile and watch tv in the afternoons. I take much pleasure in watching Glenn Beck on fox then turning the channel to msnbc and watching his counterpart ed.
    Both are real entertainment, I don't care who you are.
    They are two sides of the same loony coin and I love that they are on one after the other.
    I have been enjoying them both, better than cartoons.
    Neither is unamerican. Shutting either of them up would be unamerican.
    free speech means free speech, especially if you don't like it.
