tridirk, I believe we agree on more than we disagree. I was merely pointing out that if you, or anyone else reading my response, has trouble distinguishing between fact and opinion from a particular news source, then that source cannot be trusted and is therefore worthless.

One may disagree with most of the opinions on Fox, but at least they don`t try to disguise them as news. That cannot be said of other broadcast or cable TV news outlets.

Oh, and anyone who thinks the BBC is objective, their own Director General admits they have a "massive bias to left."

rick sanchez is the most inept news anchor i`ve ever encountered.

anyone who didn`t learn to convert metric to imperial didn`t pay too much attention in school.

anyone who says they don`t have to learn about anything outside of their domain is afraid of the world. and completely ignorant. like rick sanchez.

Re-read what I typed. I too watch Fox News.

I was trying to emphasize the differences without using names. When network names are used minds go closed and thinking ends.

This was funny. Not knowing Iceland has volcanoes or what a meter is? I think you learn about plate tectonics in 7th grade. Not a fan of him.

phunknsoul, Sanchez was never on Fox News. He was with a local Fox broadcast affiliate, which means he had almost no connection to FNC.

And considering FNC`s ratings beat CNN, HLN, and BSDNC combined, I`d say you`d have to bring CNN up a long way for them to be on the same level as FNC.

And tridirk, I have no problem telling when FNC is offering news or opinion. They make it perfectly clear. And while some of their hosts definitely tilt right, they have plenty of liberal guests, and they let you hear their side in their own words rather than the fictional words of a preposterous straw man as is usually the case with Obama and his shills on the other networks.

Perhaps your news sources blur line between facts and opinion, but mine do not.

Some Networks tell you when their program is "News" and when it`s "Opinion". Some just act like all of their offering is news, when in fact it is mostly opinion.

Whether you like one or the other. Watch when the personality gives you his/her view, or spin on what is happening. In the old days we go just the facts. Then we had opinion pages, or commentators that gave their opinion. It is all blurred now. I think journalists go to school to become personalities and thus they become the focus. What they think is most important. Their values, politics, etc. All of that is OK, as long as it is presented as just that. But it isn`t.

Shame on Journalists.

For those of you that keep saying Rick Sanchez is bringing CNN news to "Fox news level"... that`s because Rick Sanchez used to be on Fox News! He was the head reporter of (at least locally for me), that ambulance chasing, fear instilling network... He used to seem to love it when people died in an accident

What`s disturbing to me is that they waited so long to fire him. Not so much for the fact that he says ignorant, divisive things, but because he`s clearly an idiot, and has no business being in a position where his thoughts are transmitted into other people`s homes.

guys this isnt 50 years ago, the amount of jews that "control the media" is falling. When people say that the jews control the media they are probably talking about how most of hollywood studio owners are jews.

The reason why is because in the turn of the century, when the film business was starting mostly jewish eastern european immigrants ran the penny arcades which had the peephole movies (back then movies were shown in a peepholes not a screen) when movies transitioned to the screens, Thomas Edison, and many other big time film makers created a trust that prevented any other people from making movies (Edison was douche fyi). The Jewish immigrants tought that if they own the penny arcades they should make their own movies, when that happened Edison got street gangs to ruff up the jewish film makers, so in order to escape the bullying they left to a small town called Hollywood, and the rest is history.

"When you think of a volcano you think of Hawaii and long words like that, you don`t think of Iceland..." 0:29-0:33
Besides the point he goes on to make about it being too cold in Iceland for a volcano (don`t get me started), but "and long words like that"?

For the kindergarderners out there:
Hawaii = 6 letters
Iceland = 7 letters

The longest name of a volcano in Hawaii:
Kaho`olawe Lana`i = 14 letters
A long name of a volcano on Iceland (I don`t know if it`s the longest name, but I think so):
Eyjafjallajokull = 16 letters

This is an entirely pointless rant, I realize, but I had to get the bit of my frustration that I suspect would go unnoticed otherwise out.

Jews control industries. Why? Not because they`re evil.
Jewish people hold a lot of pride in their accomplishments. My Jewish friends strive for the best internships, go to very good and very expensive universities, and are very active on their campuses.
It`s not that Jews are evil and driven to control, but if you put in the effort then you`ll be at the top.

Basically
Jews control the media = not true
Jews hold many top positions in the media = true

You`ll find Jewish people in the boardrooms of just about every industry. You`ll find Jews in almost every lawfirm and working as doctors in just about every hospital. You`ll find them working as professors at almost every University. (you`ll also find them drunk and living on the street). Sorry- we`re everywhere. That doesn`t mean there`s some kind of secret conspiracy.

Bigotry if fcuking hilarious. The same people who accuse black people of being lazy criticize Jewish people for being too successful.

"Rupert Murdoch is Jewish? Really?"

Exactly- he`s one of the largest news media moguls in the world. Oh yeah- the founder of CNN, Ted Turner, also not Jewish.

" The man has to be one of the biggest idiot to ever get a television show."

No, that title is held by Glenn Beck. Hands down. he makes this douche look like a genius.

"@ChinChilla9 holy s**t you cannot be serious. lol. I cannot believe people actually believe that Jewish people "control the media.""

It takes a lot of positive discrimination and/or reaction to racism to deny that the ethno-cultural (by their own will), group, whom call themselves jewish, control many parts of the capitalist economy.

click for part of the interview that got him in trouble. or if you want to hear the actual interview and read a bit more click here Then make up your own mind whether he is a bigot towards Jews, or if he thought others were a bigot towards him? Ultimately he was fired, so did he find out who was really in charge?

I don`t think it`s any big secret that Jews do in fact control the media. How else do you think they suckered their second biggest enemy (Christianity/America) into destroying their first biggest enemy (Islam)? Without control of the media to keep the wool over our eyes, they`d never be able to do it. It helps that the general public is f*king stupid.

And BTW, I hope Rick Sanchez never works again.

Uhhh... "cotton-picking" is of direct racist derivation, as in, "cotton-picking N****r" from the slaves working the cotton plantation. Not necessarily racist today, but when used in preferred reference to a black person, the line is a bit too fine. And 9 meters in English is 9 meters. Ugh. Tool.

He called the sitting PotUS, "Cotton-picking"?

And still kept his job?

He laughed about the Volcano in Iceland? And, to quote, said, "I thought Volcanoes would be in places like Hawaii and other places with long names, not Iceland*."

*Note: Iceland has seven letters, Hawaii has six.

And still was not fired?

He then pulls a Gibson and infers that all the big media is owned by jews.

Then he was fired.
