semisweet72-"I would say more so than CNN & MSNBC."

Strange, I never heard any of Fox`s anchors get a `thrill up their leg` for Bush like Chris Matthews did over Obama.

I don`t recall Fox consider Bush `standing above the country, above the world, he’s sort of God`, that would be Evan Thomas about Obama.

But then, you probably believe it`s only natural that people become orgasmic at the very mention of Obama and just consider them as stating the `truth`.

jtrebowski, that Marketwatch propaganda piece has been totally discredited as nothing but a desperate liberal lie. What they did is take ALL the spending for FY2009 and attribute ALL of it to Bush. That includes the nearly $1 trillion stimulus plan that was passed long after Bush left office.

They also include the TARP Wall St. bailout which was supposed to be a 1-time emergency expenditure. That means that Obama has had a "1-time emergency" every year since he`s been in office!

They also fail to mention that ALL of the spending for Bush`s last 2 years in office was passed by the Reid/Polossi DEMOCRAT-controlled congress. Are you saying that Bush should have vetoed those budgets and shut down the government? If so, that would put you way to the right of Bush.

Sorry, but that lame-assed attempt isn`t even good enough to get you a feel-good sticker for trying.

LIBERAL = FAIL, yet again.

I`m pretty sure it boils down to Fox catering to a certain demographic other news agencies refuse to acknowledge.

Fox News has made many outlandish and dramatically biased statements and newscasts, I would say more so than CNN & MSNBC. I was surprised when MSNBC came under fire for the Trayvon Martin thing when Fox has done similar ridiculousness without apology. I guess it`s just expected of them now. You`re hilarious for defending them. They fight pretty damn dirty and turn around and say we`re better than you when other news agencies do kind of the same thing.

jtrebowski-"The first point made in the video is a lie."

Actually, no. That nice little graph that the Obama administration is a lie (but then, when is anything from that administration true?).
Notice the asterisk that attributes the 2009 budget to Bush. But Bush never say a 2009 budget. The Democratic Congress waited until Obama had been sworn in to pass a budget, and Obama signed the 2009 budget on March 12 of that year.

nubblins-"When are they going to admit they`re conservative biased?"

Probably the day after CNN & MSNBC admit they are worshiping at the alter of Obama and report the news exactly like the Obama adminstration tells them to.

madest-"A recent study has determined viewers of The Daily Show are more intelligent than their FoxNews counterparts"

On the June 21, 2011, edition of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart accepted that his claim to the above `study` was False (as investigated by PolitiFacts) and apologized, saying, "I defer to (PolitiFact`s) judgment and apologize for my mistake. To not do so would be irresponsible."

ExtraCredit-"I don`t really understand Republican complaints other than classifying them as covert racism."

Thus demonstrating your inability to actually debate the facts.


Burgh-"we ought to be able to use the outgoing term servers as pinatas as well."

Wonderful idea, unfortunatly what comes out will be pure bu!!poo instead of candy.

patchouly-"The corporations are greedy pigs and raise the cost of things so they can continue to make the same amount, during a recession"

Yes, those `ebil corporations`. You DO realize corporations are affected by recessions, also, right? Raw materail & operating costs go up. The customers won`t pay as much. (You DO realize that the customer helps set the prices, too? Either through what they will/won`t pay or by negotiationg prices.)

"Are you better off than you were 4 years ago"? If you really think he`s doing a great job, your view of a great job is skewed. I don`t get the incessant fanboy attitude towards a failure of a president. It`s like a bunch of 12 year-old girls that just saw Justin Bieber in concert, they love him because the girl next to them loves him. It`s ok to think for yourselves, try it.
He said in an interview with Matt Lauer in 2008, that he would have the economy under control within 3 years, or he would be a one-term president. He knew the job, it wasn`t a surprise going in.Look at unemplyment, look at gas prices, the housing market is still in shambles.
Noone expects him to wave a magic wand and fix the economy overnight. People just want it to head in the right direction. That`s not happening. If you think so, you`re lying to yourself.

And before you say it I will admit that I repeat partisan talking points. But these are from 1 1/2 years ago when I was into that crap. That is how powerful partisan brainwashing is. They made me believe these negative thoughts are my own. I`m getting better at catching myself. I delete more partisan comments than I post.

"Thank you for including MSNBC. I hate them both, and will not watch either."

That is a really good step in ridding yourself of opinion media. You still behave as if you are absolutely absorbed in partisan opinion politics though. Do you read partisan web sites? Do you go to partisan watchdog websites? Do you listen to partisan radio? There has to be something that is putting the talking points you sometimes repeat into your head. Or are all the stupid partisan videos on this site doing this to you? I know it affects me negatively. The part of my brain that used to be hooked on opinion media gets charged by it. That is why I sometimes take extended breaks from here. I created a site that teaches people how to rid themselves of opinion media. I understand how damn hard it is to break free from the negativity. I also understand how damaging sensational news is to a country. It tears people apart when we should be coming together.

That is because The Daily Show is only on 4 nights a week and most viewers only catch an episode here and there. Fox News/MSNBC brainwashing is 24/7.

When will you dumb dumb Americans realize no one person is to blame for the situation your country is in.
This situation is the end result of years of mismanagement, stupid rules and regulation, and a bureaucracy that was left unchecked and allowed Wall Street to govern themselves( proof enough for me that someone needs to be in control).
The president is sworn in 6 months after the fall of the economy and all the blame is shifted on him.
It`s like blaming a janitor for the mess he`s trying to clean up.
I also wouldn`t call the FoxNews stupid, I would call all the neanderthals who follow and believe the rhetoric that they spew forth, stupid!
America ....my silly neighbour

I love that people on here are starting to ignore the stupid bated questions that people like auburnjunky, OldOllie and CrakrJak ask. They`re not looking for a discussion or an answer - just another chance to attack and discredit. People are becoming wise to their Karl Rove tactics. It gives me hope for America.

Two days ago I heard a radio commercial for SNAP (food stamps) brought to me by the United States Department of Agriculture. So now the government is spending my money (advertisement) in order to give away MORE of my money. I could not f**king believe it. I started screaming

Wow the right wing is dumb. The corporations are greedy pigs and raise the cost of things so they can continue to make the same amount, during a recession, and pass the cost down to the little guy and somehow this is Obama`s fault? So this is sort of a blackmail situation? If you raise taxes, we will make the poor people pay? If you leave taxes where they are and tax the poor, the poor people will pay? Yeah...that sounds fair.

The things in this video are a direct result of corporate greed and have nothing to do with the government.

@EgalM you just destroyed your entire argument by starting with "I don`t know a great deal about American history"

Also that 4% rise in bread prices over 4 years is actually below what is widely considered to be a wanted level of inflation of 1.5% per year.

I am defiantly sad for some people

I don`t know a great deal about American history, but it seems to me Obama is the weakest president to date, he says what people want to hear, than caves into both sides of the senate. I have never heard of a US president giving in to both sides like he does, he has no balls.

LOL I swear man! Fox just owned Obama hard, and all you have to retort is "Poppycock!"

Also, markust, It wasn`t an election attack ad. Not once did it endorse Romney, nor did it give him equal time.

It was a far right view of the truth, as opposed to the far left view of the same truths on MSNBC, that will no doubt follow.

Sure I`ll admit this wasn`t "Fair & Balanced" if you`ll admit than MSNBC puts on a 4-hour anti-Republican attack add every damned night.

Of course, the two can`t really be equated, because every word of the Fox News vid was true.

I`m hoping a second term president will grow a set of balls and not try to compromise any longer. If Obama were more of a socialist I support him more strongly.

I don`t really understand Republican complaints other than classifying them as covert racism.

Obama is a turd. His left taper is a little more pronounced than the previous bowel evacuation to swirl the oval orifice.

Bush was a two term impaction, hopefully we don`t have the same mistake with the current foul bowel rejection.

Nothing from CNN is propaganda. You have to have a viewpoint for it to be propaganda. What CNN does is ask what everyone`s viewpoint is.

Holy hell what a stupid post this is.

Inflation comes from increased money supply. Increased money supply comes from monetizing debt. The U.S. national debt is increasing by well over 10% A YEAR, and that rate is accelerating.

Complain about inflation? What the f*ck do you expect is going to happen when your politicians allow this to happen??? Jesus, the stupidity of people is truly endless.

What shocks me is the extreme degree of Fox`s biased political activism. They`re not some independent blogger, they`re a major network. Don`t sponsors and viewers have the brains to see when a network is broken beyond repair?
