I have not found one person in the major media-and that includes on the "conservative" Fox News Channel-who has dared to tell the ugly truth about Walter Cronkite's disastrous record in favor of defeat in Vietnam, unilateral disarmament in the face of the Soviet threat, and one-world government.

Accuracy in Media who?

Hard to say which of these two nimrods was worse...
Michael Jackson declare HIMSELF to be King of Pop.

I would not paint all of Faux News with that broad a brush.
Bill O'reilly demonstrates daily how slow and vapid he is.
However I would put BOR in the category with Jerry Rivers(whorealdo)
Faux News wins by default compared to the government controlled media.
Over the Top fantastic. I love it.
It’s been around since 2004 but it’s as timely as ever.
