    Ever notice how often FOX News stories lead off with "People are saying...." or "We've heard people say....."?
    Every time they do that you know they're lying because they are the only one's saying it.

    So then FOX News must be about as honest as your average Congressman.

    The good folks at FOX News can't get through the day without numerous distortions, misrepresentations and outright lies. These people could have made Goebbels blush.

    Maybe, but lets be honest......All MSM look out for their own interest by distortions in one form or another. Are you a victim? Seems a little silly and dishonest to claim FOX sets the standard. I find the drama you use also undermines the credibility of this thread.

    So... are you guilty of the same?

    Why do you need to mischaracterize my statements? Must be force of habit as a result of watching FOX News all the time. Unfortunate that you were unable to address the premise.

    Again, you are funny. I watch many news sources and read online. I filter the BS out and come to my opinion.

    If you feel FOX is inferior, lies and so on then please turn it off. You seem to be painting yourself into a corner. Are you a victim?

    FOX News has spent a lot of time giving tacit approval to wacky birther conspiracy theories. Begs the questions: How stupid would you actually have to be to believe anything you hear on FOX News? Could anyone actually be that stupid?

    Regardless of the news service as soon as you hear "People are saying" Or "an unnamed source" Or "people close to the XXX " You can pretty much take it as a fabrication.

    Obama attacks Fox News and a day later, all his lil minions line up behind him.

    Please provide proof of these ridiculous accuations. Link to any Fox NEWS report (not commentary) will be necessary to back up your claims. Otherwise, we'll just assume you're being Capt Angry Pants and leave it at that.

    Not just today, I've been saying it for many years, and it's just as true today as it ever was.

    Absolutely true. It's a favorite tactic of FOX News......they really know the limitations of their audience.

    Proof? I have a better idea. How about if you provide proof that refutes my statement.

    Ouch CAP, you start a thread (*)(*)(*)(*)(*)ing about Fox as if you are some kind of victim. Did you lose you remote control? Did someone force you to watch it against your will? Do you only have 1 channel?

    What did you expect to gain by starting this thread CAP? Or are you seeking to be validated within the group you relate to here on PF? Get that community slap on the back feeling.

    Silly thread really. Anyway, I was bored waiting on my stunning wife when you posted, we are jumping into the Jeep headed for the mountains for a over nighter.....fall colors at 10000 feet right now. Nothing like the rocky mountains, wine and good food. Romance is in the air CAP.

    Life is good CAP, turn off the TV. Oh, I will post some pics for you tomorrow evening.

    Not that anybody doubts your superior intelligence, but a link or two is necessary to prove you're not just whistling from your backside.

    Got an example?

    No your wrong, I've found that's completely unnecessary on this forum. The standard for proof seems to vary quite a bit depending on your political orientation. For example, look at all your own superficial characterizations of the President on a regular basis. I haven't heard anyone ask for proof to establish the validity of any of those ridiculous remarks. Yet look at all the people who blithely approve of that kind of nonsense. The fact that so many people take the time to deny the obvious only serves to confirm my premise. Meanwhile I'll go through my FOX News film library and look for that example of what you know already.

    And this is all you have to refute it. What does that say about you?

    The facts are painful for Republicans, that's why they watch FOX News.

    I think in the future whenever people make mindless innuendo about the President I'm going to ask for proof. I wonder how much proof I'll get?
