FOX news is owned by a foreigner!* Isn't that, really, pretty telling? Why is it that in its coverage it deliberately targets foreigners when its own owner is an immigrant? It does explain, however, why its views are so unAmerican. (I say all this because it is exactly the take FOX would have.)

I say "ANTI"-American because so many of the views expressed are directly in opposition to the interests of the United States and contrary to the principles of the Constitution. And, it is not just because the "news" is so obviously partisan. Rather, it is because its bias seems to be engineered to weaken the fabric of American society. I believe that Rupert Murdoch is, actually, a foreign agent whose purpose is to weaken the United States. Does anyone have evidence to the contrary? That, of course, means that all of the anchors and personalities on the network are co-conspirators and collaborators.

* Albeit a naturalized American, who did so because he couldn't own TV stations in the US otherwise. I should note, however, that FOX would never footnote such a fact, nor acknowledge any omission or slant.

Having blogged on a Fox News blog (Greta Corp Blog)for two years now, I can tell you that the wing nuts will chastise you because you're the anti-American homosexual liberal scum sewer dweller who lives in your mother's basement and don't have a job and you and your free Obama phone and your constant give-me's - AND - they are the patriots.

(Cue Star Spangled Banner)

NOTE: Yes, all Liberals are homosexual who live in their mother's basement per Greta bloggers

Is it American to have a basement?

I do not have one?

I have a son living in my basement, how does that fit in? I spent 30 years in uniform, how does that fit in? I own more than one gun... and yet, I do believe in supporting my fellow man. I don't think all mooslims are terrorists. I understand the utility of taxes. My attitude is reflected in this Soldier's reaction: [video:youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=D3di8Vw15XY#t=291[/video]

We doesn't have much in the way of basements here in Floriduh.

Right now I could walk out in my yard, dig a hole a foot deep and find water.

But I do have a youngen living here, a registered Democrat with a job who can't even begin to afford a place of her own on the meager wages paid for entry level positions these days.

I started this thread because I really do not understand why FOX hates America so much. Is it for our freedoms? Why do they expend so much effort to destroy American values, to distort, to lie, to corrupt, to create division. Are they a Fifth Column that presages an invasion, weakening the structure of American society, sabotaging all that is good and decent? Clearly they can't all believe the naked lies they spew. I can only conclude that it is an insidious plot to weaken America.

I think it is nothing more than a naked, successful business model.

I still recall (maybe with a bit of mis-remembering, ala Bill and Brian, who knows?) an interview of Rush Limbaugh on 60 Minutes, or some such show, at the outset of his blossoming as a Right WingNut. The question was, "Why do you say such outrageous crap, do you really believe what you say?" His answer was, "Because people eat it up. I don't believe it, but they do, and they want more of it. I find it very entertaining personally, and it's making me filthy rich!"
