@5cats, I believe Obama was right when he made that comment but was equally understating the actual events that were occurring in America`s Bible Belt. There was a definite growing of vicious and treacherous mercinary training going on there and they claimed "in preparation for civil war in America".

It wouldn`t have mattered what president would have made that comment at the time, it was rather descriptive.

Um, have you ever listened to LIBERAL commenters? They say `conservatives` are deranged, racist, hate-filled, insane, bigoted, biased, homophobic... the list is endless!

It starts at the liberal elite top and flows down to the liberal masses bottom. Truely sickening.

Last line of previous finished below.

If the ideas and beliefs of people do not actually impinge upon the freedoms or well-being of another then it is my understanding that no one outside of that has any right to control, change, or remove that freedom. Bill Reilly makes too many choices based on his right to be "Offended." But that doesn`t mean America should be shaped around his ideas. I was under the impression that American freedom was about the right to have many different points of view. The fact that somebody else might disagree is the whole point. "You can only be free if I allow it or agree" is not freedom. I think Bill Reilly says what he does because he wants all of America to think exactly like him. I could kick his balls right up into his throat.

It`s not that I hate Fox News. I just like freedom. People like Bill Reilly are not involved in their politics because of "freedom," but because they have a way of life to maintain regardless of what it costs others. In a high percentage of what he argues about he is sharp and forthright in his debates. BUT it cannot be denied that he is no friend of freedom for Americans. Find an argument that he makes that doesn`t imply that he thinks someone else is "wrong" and therefore stupid and you get a lollipop. If the whole of the country (which includes racial, religious, and "sexual" minorities) cannot be represented and understood by the "Idea" being set forth then the "Idea" is not in the best interest of America as a whole. America is "all" the people who are citizens in America. If the ideas and beliefs of people do not actually impinge upon the freedom of another then it is my understanding that no one outside of that has any

The graphic clearly labels the video clip as "union protest," of which there are several. It doesn`t say they are all "Wisconsin union protests."

Are you saying that violent union protests are just fine as long as they occur in the presence of palm trees?

Not even hardcore Conservatives watch as much Fox News as Liberals do skimming for "lies"

Go find something else to hate on, we get it, you don`t like Fox News

Is anyone really surprised by this anymore? This is typical of Fox News. If they can’t find any real violent protesters just go into the video vault and play some old stuff in order to get their point across. I would think they would have fired their editing crew a long time ago for this except they are probably told to do this crap. Fox News is untrustworthy.

vv Appaerntly @enolamron didn`t watch the video OR read the comments before spouting his $0.02, eh?
It`s not about "Wisconson protests" it`s about protesters using violence IN GENERAL. m-kay? So please do tell: how is Fox "distorting the facts" by talking about something and showing video about that subject? Especially since this seems to pre-date the latest protests in WI, and the violence, death threats and Union Thuggery that`s been going on there.

@RETARDEDBEAR - Yeah...um...it`d be different if Fox News didn`t have such a long long long record of distorting the facts, in the way of using incorrect footage. You tell me, would you expect a video of protests playing during a news segment about protests in Wisconsin to be FROM WISCONSIN?! Regardless of if you would, most people would. There was no reason for a clip of a protest from another state to be playing, regardless of the caption. Since you threw the first blow, I feel it demonstrates the incompentence, but more often downright dirty dishonesty, of the media, in particular the Right-Wing Conservative pundits who need to use misleading footage, sound bites, interviews, etc. to fuel their non-existent cases against sanity.

Notice the tag on the video footage says "Union Protests," not "Wisconsin Protests." An old, failed, desperate attack on Fox News, because liberals can`t actually find any real lies to back up their narrative on Fox News.

I mean we can just dismiss Fox News off hand merely for being Fox News, but I think I missed the lie here.

@turbopuppy, I don`t think that`s true because the best TV programming has been FOX for many years. It`s about getting reliable news from the mainstream. But, don`t thank FOX for that, everyone bow and thank Robert Murdock. He has successfully changed source news into a tabloid. Now, for NBC, I used to enjoy Rachael Maddow but no longer because I`m not liking what she`s doing these days as far as presentation (injecting too much left-wing propoganda and thrashing the right-wing). I think MSNBC et al will be more and more left-leaning because what FOX is doing works and media giants need to compete maintain their viewership. We as watchers, need to just accept that there may be bias in journalism and reporting. It`s really too bad because when I have my full time job; my home life; my hobbies, etc. I want my news to be presented unbiased and short...oh well, the news media makes it imperative that we all watch several sources to get the more accurate (aka balanced) views.

O`Reilly addressed this exact video like 2 days later after all the liberals got upset about it. That was like a month ago! He wasn`t even talking about Wisconsin in this video. He was talking about protests in general. The video even begins that way.

Are some people deaf? It says bussed in FROM Wisconsin, so unless they got busloads of people and drove them out of, then back into Wisconsin for some reason then these protests clearly didn`t happen in Wisconsin.


Hellooooooo Wisconsiiiinnnnnnn!!!!!

@fivezones & Uplink
maybe its the label at the top left corner that reads `union protests` or the fact that they only mention california as a place where people are being bussed in from to protest in wisconsin that makes everyone think the video was made to represent wisconsin? but what do i know? i only payed attention

The video footage is from California because they were talking about California. Fox shows what liberal stations don`t want to show. Because of that, people believe it`s fake because they didn`t see it on those other channels. They are talking about California, so they show California footage.

If no one else is covering it then it is probably not true...

There is a lot of actual evidence that fox news is all bs anyhow. They were actually sued over it and the ruling was that they could show you anything they wanted to and still call themselves a "news" station.

Why don`t you go do actual research on this and then come back and tell us you still believe fox news is showing you the truth.

chimmeychang is right that there is no law against news organizations lying to you...at least in the United States. In Canada there is such a law. That`s what kept Rupert Murdoch from establishing a Canadian cable news channel similar to Fox News. Murdoch tried to get Canadian legislators to rescind the law but was unable to do so.

FOX news less bias, when you add Orly, all foundation of things that are real are gone. The guy doesn`t even understand how tides work, he thinks they are magic, anyone who trusts him for credible information is...MSNBC is the opposite side of the same misleading coin...Im not taking sides, just pointing out that there is NO LAW AGAINST NEWS ORGANIZATIONS OUTRIGHT LYING TO YOU, honesty in reporting is left up to the integrity of the reporters and editors, and integrity was the first thing they dropped when they were downsizing. Shame on you media.

What makes anyone think the video was represented as Wisconsin? Because I also heard the word California spoken.

If you want to make fun of Fox, you got to do better than make stuff up. Otherwise the ones making fun of Fox look like idiots

1) repost

2) inaccurate. As much as I hate Fox, they were talking about a wide range of areas and events during this segment. This is just a small part of it.

After this aired on FOX, many of the protesters began bringing inflatable palm trees to the protests in Wisconsin. Gotta love anyone that mocks FOX like that!

They didn`t label it Wisconsin union protestors, Just "Union Protests` which are going on in many states right now not just Wisconsin.

randomxnp, you`re an idiot. I live in Madison and there has been absolutely no violence, at all, since this started (except by the State Troopers, that is). The fact that Faux News had to dig up some footage from Florida and then say it`s Wisconsin goes to show how absolutely full of sh*t they are in everything they do. Pull your head out of your ass, moron.

My submissions for coverage (or NON-coverage actually) of the leftist violence, death threats and overall THUGGERY weren`t put up, but this crap is?
It`s just the wrong footage people, they goofed! But the FACTS remain the same, leftist violence = NO coverage, peaceful Tea Party rallies = violence! in the eyes of the MSM.

Wow. So no mention of the lies from all the other news sources, which don`t mention all the violence, illegality and death threats (many, specific to the point of describing a bomb plot in detail) by union thugs in WI, while seeing Tea-Party violence and violent language when there is none.

This is partisan nonsense.

Oh oh, Troll Alert!!!

Please do not feed the trolls! LOL

(This will be a fun commentary to watch though)

From what I recall, there are two sides to this argument though. Didn`t the Republicans and (prior) Tea Party activists insert themselves into Demoncratic campaign presentations throughout the elections just to redicule and create an atmosphere of bias with constant interruptions of the speakers? They were very bold and many had to be removed. So, either way both primary parties conceivably play the same game...if you want to call it that.
