***FOX NEWS IGNORES GEORGIA PRIMARY ON Channel Crawl***
Stardate: 1203.7

Posted on 03/07/2012 2:20:34 AM PST by The Wizard

I am appalled that Fox news, whom a lot of us trusted, is NOT listing the results of the GEORGIA Primary on the bottom of the screen crawl....they act like it didn't happen.....

They are so biased against Newt that they won't run the information that shows he won Georgia....

It may be a small thing, but what it tells me about Fox News is disturbing...

Romney is the one the government has decided will replace bambi....a George Soros approved Republican.....

I know many here have lost faith in Fox News, but it is still way better than the others......I Thought......it is appalling that they are not listing a state’s primary in their on going results crawling across the screen every few seconds......

Very disheartening

We noticed that as well.

Several tmes, the panel made jokes about Newt.

It is bad enough to be a conservative; to have the leftist make fun of you but to have people on FOX, who are supposed to be fair and balanced, to do the same, is very dishearting..

CNN had the best coverage last night and the quickest. most accurate returns.

Fox is full of elite Rinos who love Mitt and hate Newt/Rick/Sarah.

They know if Newt does well in the upcoming southern states, that hurts Mitt.

They are in mourning that Mitt did not wrap it up last night as Fox had predicted.

Why would you trust a tv station to do anything other than generate revenue?

Get your news on FR and other new media outlets. Watch ‘tv’ on Hulu or some other service the left hasn’t fully co-opted yet. The math is pretty simple. We must starve the beast of it’s viewer=Ad dollar model or accept being part of the problem.

I gave up TV years ago and discovered I suddenly had a lot more time to spend on things I enjoy and that benefit me mentally and financially.

There is no good argument for TV that the net cannot address. and if someone values football or a sitcom more than their country (IE helping to fund it’s demise through their viewership/ad dollars) then I dunno what to say.

I agree they are ignoring Newt to some extent. what really upsets me is the way Santorum was treated after Iowa. They gave Romney credit for winning Iowa thus having momentum into New Hampshire. Convenoently, after NH went for Romney, they whispered that Rick had really won Iowa, but that meant nothing now that their fair-haired boy won NewHampshire. If Santorum or Newt win a state they just talk about some poll that has Romney winning future races. However, about all eyes were on Ohio being to close to call. also they gave fanfare to Mittens winning Va, ignoring the fact that newt and Rick were not even on the ballot. Are they afraid the Obama/ Soros thugs are going to shut them down????

I saw that too. How biased can they be!?

All it does it make Mitt look like they have to back him up by pushing down any good news about his competition.

Mitt’s a weak sister and THEY KNOW IT!

THE CANDIDATE THEY DISLIKE THE MOST IS OUR TRUE WINNER: NEWT !!!!! WHOM THEY TRULY FEAR.

It is so obvious to me: The elites from both parties and MSM prefer Romney, and Democrats promote Santorum to ensure Obama’s victory, but they always minimize Newt’s exposure.

THAT SAYS IT ALL.

We should all vote for whom MSM and Democrats are afraid of. Too elementary!

Fox has done this the Ron Paul for 6 months, but nobody seems to care when it’s crazy uncle.

When Ron Paul came in second, they would announce who came in first and who came in a distant third.

Now that it’s one of the chosen, people start whining.

I was so ticked off about this last night. I emailed FOX, and tweeted A couple of the anchors, but nothing changed. I switched to CNN coverage even though I can’t Stand Wolfie. I kept checking back to see if they changed the crawl. But Georgia never showed up. In addition they were scrolling through results on the right side of the screen and Georgia was missing there as well. Outrageous! No possible way this was accidental.

I was on the bike at Golds gym last night. Fox was the first to break to Netws speech. They did not ignore Newts win.

Correct.

FOX ran that banner "GINGRICH WINS GEORGIA" for about the entire Romney speech.

Some of you folks aren't paying attention.

I'm sure they've been getting a ton of emails so it's obviously being done to depress Gingrich voter turnout in the next contests.

Fox is not Fair and Balanced.

They are NOT reporting the news.

They are pimping for Mitt.

Tennessee delegates:

Santorum: 25

Gingrich: 8

Oklahoma delegates:

I am ok with Newt

I am ok with Rick

I am not crazy over either of them. but will gladly pull the handle for either in the general....

my primary is April 24th and it ticks me off to no end that it could be over by then.....

It will not be over until June.

Mitt will need delegates from the June 26 Utah contest to help him limp into Tampa.

Interesting - when I watch TV for news and commentary I watch FOX. I did watch FOX last night after 9PM, and I recall seeing Georgia coverage including numbers, and percentages, off and on throughout the evening,

As to overall coverage throughout the primary season, I believe Gingrich got more face time than any other. I recall telling my wife I was tired of seeing his silly grin.

Why are you surprised? They pretty much did the same type of thing in SC. Called the race immediately and then went on to other things.

It’s a conspiracy I tell ya.
