To Chickenman: Firstly, I can only relate why I dislike Fox News, and that`s because they claim to be "fair and balanced" while blatantly (though probably not in your eyes) being otherwise.

Secondly, people *do* complain about the prevailing liberal bias in the media, all the time. I for one have long since converted to C-Span because they have no agenda, liberal or otherwise.

Thirdly, there`s nothing "slight" about Fox News` conservative bias. People fed Fox News since Day 1 may not realize it, but the bias is in plain slight.

To jimbodahobo: Please oblige me and explain in what way(s) C-Span is liberal, in your eyes.

To Indigo_M: So, being told exactly what one wants to hear is better than having an informed opinion about world events? Is being appeased by a prejudiced media outlet better than sacrificing personal happiness and focusing on the serious issues of the world? As a powerful person in government, Cheney can`t afford to be this negligent.

FOX is a Bush-humping tv channel.

All televisions tuned to FoxNews.

So? I`d request the same thing if I was VP. Apparently, Cheney prefers the news channel that doesn`t attack him every day.

Well then, why is FOX the ONLY newschannel that gets rammed for having a slanted news?

Every other channel can get as liberal as they want, but noone complains about them.

(I still believe that since every other channel is liberal, its so out of the norm to have a channel that shows a slight conservative POV, that people automatically label it as "Conservative")

I don`t think there is a single news channel that shows both sides to the story.

a) proves fox news is slanted toward bush (murdock is an a$$), b) no caffeine for his weak ticker, and c) sparkling water - wtf? Me on the other hand, my list would kick ass..

Yeah, this list is very reasonable. Most of the celebrity ones I read are at least a couple pages long and have really strange demands in them.

...woops, forgot to mention that, as far as having the TV on FoxNEWS, I`m guessing that if I had a TV channel that catered to my every whim, I`d want to tune it in 24/7, as well. ;-)

Yeah, I hate to say anything positive about the man at all, but this really is a reasonable list. And, as lolakitty72 said, it`s not like most of this stuff isn`t in there already.

That really wasn`t too strange at all. Most of this stuff is already in the room- like the bed, carafe and the temp is usually at 68-70. I wouldn`t expect the VP to be hiking over to the ice machine in his skivvies, like most VIP customers at 4-5 star hotels, this would be done prior to arrival.

That didnt seem too unreasonable at all. Its not him demanding these, his people probably ask him "is there anything you`d like upon arrival?"

The list really wasn`t that demanding.

I suppose the "all lights turned on" thing is for security. Other than that the only really odd thing is the tv stations being turned to FOX news.

A few years ago, I read about a celeb who only wanted clear ice cubes. He didn`t want any of the ice cubes to have a "cloudy" tint to them. Whatever, give me a bed and remote please.

Don`t be so naive, I`m sure most high level politicians and celebrities have lists like this, no matter if its in the US or Canada.

And this is a fairly reasonable list.
