I am watching all day today and they are playing Kerry clip after Kerry clip. They are really beginning to hack me off.

They are part of the liberal media. They may not be as bad as the other four networks, but they are still way to the left of center.

Gosh, I have "The Omen" on AMC but did a quick channel flip to Fox and guess what? They were showing a Bush rally and there was GWB and Jenna.

This did not deserve a thread.

NO, it's in their regular news line up as they go through election headlines.

Maybe they've decided that Kerry's going to win and they're trying to kiss up to him. O'Reilly's already set the precedent.

give up on them, many of us already have. you may need to stay tuned in until after the election, but after that, just turn them off. the next time I plan on watching them is for OReilly's last show - which I hope will be soon.

Fox, as all the news outlets, wants to make this a "too-close-to-call" horserace so they can boost their ratings and feel relevant. As for me, I am turning my TV off till election night and rereading some good books that I've been missing. I think it will be a lot more worthwhile than listening to the mindless blabbing that will engulf the airwaves in the next nine days.

The libs that they've always had working there are now coming out and showing where they've placed their allegiances.

John Gibson and Brit Hume are the only two that I can watch anymore. Fox & Friends used to be a favorite of mine, but the libs Hill, Chetry and Phillips are really ticking me off lately.

I thought I read somewhere recently that the head-honcho of Newscorp (parent company of FNC) endorsed Kerry for President. If true, I guess that pretty much explains it all.

Kerry & his minions are wallpapering Florida (black & Catholic churches, etc) today. Bush has gone to Crawford. The press is being fed a special K diet today.

You should have seen this coming. With Greg Gerred coming on board, then Greta and Heraldo. Chris Wallace ! Huh, I think Dan Rather was one his mentors. Fair and Balanced my A$$. I used to watch them almost all day long, not anymore, Chris Wallace's arrival laid it all out. I hope they get rid of him and the rest of the left wing invaders.

To cover both sides, you have to cover both sides.

I strongly feel most of this FNC bashing is from those trying to divide conservatives.

Check the sign-up dates, a lot of these bash threads are from those signed up this year.

I don't buy it at all.

Would that be the clip of kerry campaigning at a black church? I heard Williams say they got a bunch of emails from people critical of kerry campaigning while at a church.

I think most folks are watching football and the World Series.

IMHO, people are getting tired of the election rhetoric and are ready for November 2nd.

It's be a long campaign. I consider myself fairly politically active but I have to admit I am ready for the vote.

Unfortunately, whoever wins or loses the election won't be over until 2008 if it's a close race.

I don't know how the candidates do it. I'm worn out and we are 10 days short of the Big Rumble!

If I play Heir Kerr clips repeatedly now for the next 4 or so days I can play GW Clips for the rest of the days leading up to the election and remain fair and balanced statistically and keep Dubya in the forefront of the fence sitting fast food society voters mentality..........

I'd like to think that is what FNC is doing.....

The only silver lining that I can see in showing these clips of Kerry in church is that maybe, just maybe, folks will see what a hypocrite and phoney this man is!

He has the gall to get up and talk about "acting on his faith". I wish he'd act on his faith and show a little more concern for the countless unborn babies that are slaughtered each year.

To cover both sides, you have to cover both sides.

Right. Just because the MSM want to pretend that they are objective (while being the opposite) doesn't mean FOX should play the same games. More people will tune in to FOX News and receive the news the others fail to report because they will perceived as giving both sides a fair shot.

That's the point - it's not just you, but the more ANYONE sees this guy, the more they dislike him. They should run Kerry 24/7 if they could.

I've been wondering the same thing lately. Michael Savage says Fox News was afraid it would lose Democratic guests if it wasn't more favorable to Kerry.

As for Bill O'Reilly, he's been running scared ever since he was exposed as a fraud for claiming to have a working-class background, claiming to be a registered independent, and claiming to run a "No Spin Zone."

To cover both sides, you have to cover both sides.

You might or might not notice, but they cover both sides 'differently'....they make mention that President Bush is campaigning somewhere in New Mexico today, then turn around and show four (count 'em - four) video clips of JFK ragging and nagging, and doing the black church pulpit thing.

They talk "for" Bush - then show Kerry at places - even when talking about Bush - It is getting so obvious

Majority on Fox have shown their true nature of late - but there are still a few who are holding the line -
