F.R. defamed as "Hate Site" by Fox 5 News! [FOX News' Bill O'Reilly started this B/S]
Fox 5 News ^ | 8/16/07 | crusher

Posted on 08/16/2007 7:56:17 PM PDT by crusher

I was listening to the news out of the corner of my ear when I heard FreeRepublic specifically mentioned as a "hate site" about fifteen minutes ago.

Ostensibly the long report was about the Klan using the web to recruit new wackos. Then the focus turned to Casa Maryland, and their director who claimed that calls for his murder had circulated on the internet by anti-immigrant bigots. It was then that the anchor identified FR by name as a hate site.

Democrats and Liberals don’t like us and this site. The bus is rolling and they are going to do all they can to destroy us and throw us under it. I fear the MSM is going to do all they can to smear us into oblivion and with their track record of precise and fair reporting, we are in peril (along with the country).

Perhaps if they receive 5,000 emails, they’ll think twice.

Yep, they got us, we’re all Klan members and Nazis who just happen to trend toward supporting the state of Israel. I know for me that always makes for some lively conversations at the weekly meetings.

Just because we won’t let the MSM spin our minds into submission we’re a hate site? If so, I wear the title proudly. As a T-Shirt my wife has says “THINK! It is not illegal yet.” Of course, the MSM doesn’t want us to think, they want to tell us what/how to think. They want us to believe them, to be easy to manipulate.

Any lie, no matter how ridiculous, that is repeated long enough and loud enough becomes fact in the mind of many.

Who cares? If we do wear white sheets and burn crosses, rest assured no one knows about it. A shame FOX 5 never interviewed Jim Rob. They would know racism, obscenity and calls for the violent overthrow of the government are banned from this website. So much for what passes for "fact checking" by the MSM.

If the Boy Scouts can be called a hate group(which they have been), then I guess FreeRepublic qualifies as a hate site...the leftists have nothing but hatred at the site of us. Bad pun.

I know that free advice is worth what you paid for it, but along with talking to someone from Fox5 you might want to consider inviting them to see for themselves the pure volume of posts that are generated at FR headquarters and encourage them to see just how few posts are even remotely “hateful”.

Text of my comment:

I just read on Freerepublic.com, that someone at your media outlet referred to Freerepublic as a “hate site”.

That’s just silly.

Go to the site.

If you know anything about it, you will know the site is monitored 24/7 by a group of totally rambunctious moderators, who will obliterate any post hinting of any sort of “hate” faster than you can say Daily KOS.

You cannot however, say that about... the Daily KOS.

Go to Freerepublic.com. See for yourself.

Then you might post an apology there.

It would be appropriate.

You reap what you sow. You can find ample evidence to support “FR is a hate site” on any immigration thread you care to mention ... and these days, damned near everything turns into an immigration thread.

On the flip side, got to DU, and every other statement can be like that sometimes.
