Black people don't watch Fox because they are racists.

If Fox News told me the sky was purple I'd believe them because they would have facts to back up their statement.

And then when they were proven wrong they would apologize and correct the mistake.

I've seen oreilly report a story one day and then a few days later admit that his facts were incorrect and set the record straight.

Not many journalists would do that.

That's why I admire Fox News - because they always make sure that the viewers get the accurate story.

Wow... O'Reilly must apologize a lot. Back in the day when Olbermann often puts O'Reilly on Worst Person of the Day, is because Olbermann calls out O'Reilly on his mistakes in facts. Just sayin...

Don't fool yourself, there aren't many "Journalists" that work at Fox News just a bunch of political hacks - as with MSNBC the two networks are like those old Airplane movies with Leslie Nielson - IT'S ALL A BIG JOKE, it's not real news it's ideology wrapped around the idea of daily events - at least with John Stewart he doesn't "pretend" to be serious these other jack arses take themselves way too serious. Like during the Bush Administration, if you lie over and over again, you start believing the garbage that is disseminated.

Nice twist.

I'm frightened when anyone comes out and says this:

about a news source, person, religion, etc...

Fox has their opinion people make news for their news people. If someone goes on their opinion show and says America is marching towards socialism, the news can go, "An increasing number of people think America is heading towards socialism." Is it factually incorrect? Who knows. It's impossible to quantify, it basically has no relevancy, and there's nothing about it that's actually based in reality.

first, the sky is neither blue or purple
it may appear to be one or the other

as for purple, we have the evidence, most likely a reflection off the the mountains*




O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
*For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!

Seems our right-leaning posters are dropping like flies these days. It's a shame.
