I wish I had an easy answer for ya...I don't. It's disturbing and a little depressing if you think about it too much. How could a nation as culturally advanced as Germany fall for a bunch of Austrian hucksters--dunno?

Fox should be popular. It addresses the lowest common denominator. The U.S. public edu system is a joke, turning the Country into a second rate power. See the current lawsuits re high school final exam. People are finishing high school without being literate. A well educated tech. lit. editor friend is unemployed. Her job was outsourced to India. What brilliant leadership.

Blame that on the fat asses who rape the coporations with their Ol' Boys club....officially called the board of Directors adn executive management...

THey get bonuses for fucking the employees and outsourceing jobs.........they get bonuses when the company loses money....hell they give themselves bonuses just for showing up for work....and of cource the workers take it up the ass.....as well as do the share holders.



That has nothing to do with Bush...it has everything to do with the left as well as the pathetic state of education since liberal indocrination has been their only priority for decades....There is not enough time left in the day to actually teach student something after the mandatory 6 hours of indocrination.

I think only a complete dolt couldn't see that Fox News has a point of view. Probably from the same Dolt Family that produces people who think that any other single source of news has a lock on truth.

Look, for fifty years (in the USA) or so 3 primary TV channels and a dozen newspapers reflected and created the perceptions of reality from which news stories arise. Fifty years ago the truth was easy to find, just dial it up or get the NY Times and there you go, TRUTH.

Then cable upset the fruity basket with CNN. Remember when they were practically considered "alternative media" because they had Peter Arnett on the payroll? So the Satanic Rupert Murdoch sees a market segment not being addressed and hires an expert on that segment, Roger Ailes (sp?). Ailes does what Murdoch wants, makes money, by giving the news a perspective absent from any other broadcast or cable news in the USA. People who like that slant love that channel.

What the folks who hate Fox News fail to realize, as though they have a vision problem that allows sight from the left eye only, is that the other news sources all reflect a particualr POV, too. Fox cleverly carved a niche for itself and is exploiting it. Good for them and I hope they make buckets, nay, dumpsters of money.

Now you folks who hate Fox should try something really interesting -- compete with them. Start a left-slanted news channel. Make money off Birkenstock and Granola commercials.

Get off your whiney asses and kick some Fox ass. Or wimper and whine about how it just isn't fair and the world is full of meanies.

People don't tune into Fox for information. They do so for confirmation.

I actually believe that most people who watch Fox News believe that they are receiving unbiased news and they have no inkling that there is a "point of view".

But, I also believe that the average person is a moron.

So, there you go. You have a belief in the intelligence of the average person in the street.

I don't.
