    You don't have to watch it, you know. This isn't North Korea. You can watch something else.

    On the bright side, they had minds to lose. You, on the other hand, are what I refer to as a 'walk off'. When God was handing out the brains, you walked off.

    Idiot.

    They are a joke because they made a typo?

    Seriously, Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, are all jokes. Journalism died a long time ago.

    Technically a typo would be misuse or misspelling of a word, juxtaposition of names, dates, ect.. THIS -- is a BANNER LINE that doesn't agree with the primary premise of the story.. SOMEONE not fully brain-engaged is monkeying with the graphics.. And there is no quality control of the crap they throw on air..

    Fully expect that raising the Min Wage will fix this problem at ALL the Network News operations...

    Do you know for sure that they didn't mix up the numbers that are under the pictures? You know, kind of like a typo?

    Interestingly enough, just recently they had put Obama's picture with Romney's name on one of their poll charts recently and had to apologize for it.

    This post gets an A+ from hitting all the key elements of a Cali Girl post. Well done. You are on your way to being as arrogant and conceited as she is!

    This neutralizes Chris Wallace.

    11. The Media Can Legally Lie | Project Censored

    FOX appealed the case, and on February 14, 2003 the Florida Second District Court of Appeals unanimously overturned the settlement awarded to Akre. The Court held that Akre’s threat to report the station’s actions to the FCC did not deserve protection under Florida’s whistle blower statute, because Florida’s whistle blower law states that an employer must violate an adopted “law, rule, or regulation.” In a stunningly narrow interpretation of FCC rules, the Florida Appeals court claimed that the FCC policy against falsification of the news does not rise to the level of a “law, rule, or regulation,” it was simply a “policy.” Therefore, it is up to the station whether or not it wants to report honestly.
