    This is very very very bad.

    This is an interesting factoid I didnt know about before, and it just isnt good that a foreign power can dictate the content of our news

    Well, you must care, since you decided to post about it.

    So Mike, what are your thoughts about this, beside you don't like hearing about it.

    As much as I would like it (It would help me get my homework done faster) I am not omniscient, (Especially about spelling. ) and that little fact had escaped my notice.


    That said, every source is always compromised. Whenever anyone tells you anything, you sort of need to pay attention to where his bread is buttered

    I don't see what the big fuss is all about. You have literally millions of ways to get News. Television is not the first choice for most people.

    Of course we do. What is shocking to me is that the Prince is making Fox News alter the way they report some things, and repressing the reporting of things all together. WTH?
