Stuart Varney's anti-military bias certainly is evident.

I don't know what it is with FoxNews's video, but I've never been able to get them to play (in their newer format) on any of the 3 different browers I have installed.

Sorry about that, keep trying. I don't know if they use Flash or not, you might try upgrading your version of Flash from Macromedia.com

I just upgraded Flash a couple days ago. That FoxNews video problem has existed since they changed to their current format.

The video window comes up, even indicates the correct video title, but the actual video doesn't load or play. I have the latest Flash, MSPlayer, Java, etc.

Stuart Varney's anti-military bias certainly is evident.

Not sure if you've never seen Stuart Varney before or what but I assure you, he is NOT anti-military. I think what you might be detecting is an interviewing technique of him using the left's argument to bring out the Sgt's. answers more sharply and to counter Murtha loudly.

I've noticed that too. It sure seems like they are trying to recycle themes and slogans here.

Firefox is saying there are several javascript errors on the video page.

I can't get either Firefox or IE to load the video.

Way to go Gunny.

Could one of you computer geniuses out there fix us up with a "Kick Murtha's butt black and blue" version of that "Slap Hillary silly" one that many of us down loaded and enjoyed immensely?

That's occurred to me several times. And I think that his Democrat peers take advantage of him and egg him on. Disgraceful.

You're giving Murtha and the democrap party leadership too much benefit of the doubt ... the lying, anti-military in order to be anti-Bush bastards are in total agreement with murtha hatefool. Murtha's eagerness to slime military personnel in order to attack Bush (and as an aside aid and abet the enemies of the nation in order to prevent Bush from winning the war against terrorism that their degenerate president was too damn weak to fight) is the proof of actions indicting the entire democrat party for treason and or sedition as a means to democrat political empowerment.

It plays within my browser. I'm not using a separate player. But I do have both Microsoft and Real Players installed on my computer. Here is some help info I found on the Fox News Site:

What are the computer requirements?

Why does the video sometimes stop or pause?
Our video uses "streaming" technology to start transmitting video almost as soon as it is requested, rather than waiting for the complete video file to download. If the video stream pauses, it is probably due to Internet traffic congestion, a slow modem connection, or insufficient computer hardware. If a pause persists, it is recommended that you restart the video.

What about firewalls?
Some organizations and Internet Service Providers filter or block video transmission. If you cannot get video transmission (even when your system meets the above computer and software requirements), you may want to contact your Internet Service Provider or Network Administrator to see whether its security firewall is intentionally or unintentionally blocking video transmission. For further information, please see service.real.com/firewall/ or www.microsoft.com/Windows/windowsmedia/ en/serve/, which provide useful information to both users and firewall administrators.

Why am I receiving Javascript errors?
Javascript errors in the video page are usually caused by ad blockers, which block files needed both for advertising and for basic display of the page. This is most easily diagnosed by turning your ad blocker off and reloading the page. If this still doesn't work, please email us at foxnewsonline@foxnews.com

If you still have a problem...
Please send a message to foxnewsonline@foxnews.com, noting as much as you can of the following: the Web site that you viewed the video from, the name of the video, the problem, and your system configuration (player, browser, and operating-system versions, modem speed, Internet access provider, computer processor type and speed, and quantity of RAM.)
