SHAME ON FOX NEWS! ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!
06-25-09 | MJ Rackley

Posted on 06/25/2009 4:39:41 PM PDT by nfldgirl

Okay...if I'm off-base, then flame me. But DH and I are fuming this evening to come home from work to learn that Fox News spent the 6-7 PM NEWS hour with Shep Smith crying over Michael Jackson. UN-FRICKIN-BELIEVABLE! There is so much crap going on in this country, the world, the economy, 10% unemployment, Congress/Obama getting ready to shove cap-n-trade down our throats, he and the big-she having a laeuiu at the Whie House...what in the hell is going on! The whole damn world is in fire! I'm so ticked off to not hear the Bret Baer news hour....what a frickin joke on the part of Fox News! And they want to be taken seriously?! Geesh! Enough already!

Right now it’s an Al Sharpton mouth-a-thon on Fox.

Lose the TV. Get a beer. Take deep breaths.

BTW, lose the TV doesn't mean w/ a 12 gauge, unless you are in the country and won't get in trouble.... Simply dump it at the curb and 30 minutes later it is gone.

Hmmm...must have been an Obama and Emanuel plot to cause Michael Jackson to have a heart attack to divert all news coverage. At least that was the explanation of some Freerpers as to why the Sanford affair story broke. LOL

Michael Jackson's life was more bizarre than any freak show at Cony Island. Still 5 minutes of air time is enough.

Drama Queen Tinkerbell said about 30 mins ago of Micheal Jackson’s death “ in the coming days this is going to turn into a American event “ .....

Stories like this one take the spotlight off the economy, Obama, unemployment, healthcare and the other depressing doom-and-gloom daily issues. People are drawn to it as a sort of bizarre escape. It gets huge ratings; I’m betting it will be a top story on all channels for weeks.

Well it’s not like there is at this very moment the most destructive legislation to the Republic ever unleashed making its way thru the corridors of corruption. Oh, wait...

It's just as well. If we weren't hearing Michael Jackson stories we'd be hearing non-stop coverage of this guy:

FOX has spent from 7-7:44 pm on it, too, and by 8 pm I expect that it will have been the entire 7-8 pm newscast.

Lets face it, Michael Jackson is a bigger audience draw than world news, shamnesty, cap and tax.
