Honestly, folks, and I’ve watched O’Reilly for some time, and I still do listen to him while I surf the net, because my background TV is generally tuned to Fox, the quality of MOST Fox news programs has really nose-dived WITH THE EXCEPTION of the new Glen Beck show.

Whether O’Reilly, Hannity, Baird, you name it, they all use these cycled and recycled talking heads like Morris, Newt, Huck, and each other, and it just gets a little boring.

The other major failure, imho, is their use of certified spokespersons from the major party camps. No matter who they are, you can be certain that they will SPOUT ENDLESSLY their party’s talking points.

Please, please, please, OH God, please make them stop putting the mindless robots on Fox News. Please have them pick out some conservatives or liberals NOT ASSOCIATED with the parties, not Dem “consultants”, and not “Fox” associates, and let us hear what truly thoughtful people have to say.

Fair and balanced spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning....

So true.

And the morning show has gotten to be all fluff and no substance unless they have Glenn Beck on.

How many times will Fox&Friends have the story about the test the Dallas Cheerleaders are now taking. Obviously, they are running this story so they can keep putting the video of the cheerleaders on. If I wanted fluff, I'd turn the channel to something besides the “news” in the morning.

Paging Pat Cadell. He’s always speaking his mind and let’s the chips fall. I like that. And Kirsten Powers has also been that way to a more limited extent.

And they all report the SAME stories. BORING.... Beck is the only one who finds different stories. It is refreshing to watch him. He must have a good staff with motivation.
