Excellent post, Jane.

If you watched the Fox lineup tonight did you notice how far behind the curve the hosts and their so-called conservative guests and analysts are?

It's amazing that Free Republic posters and Mark Levin are communicating to us and to the public up-to-date analysis, numbers, costs, facts, illegalities, lies, perversions, violations, slights-of-hand and horrific consequences abounding in and around the Unaffordable Health Care Act that other hosts, pundits, analysts and the like seem to be a day or two behind on.

Tonight, O'Reilly was hysterically babbling like a madman and spouting theories, misinformation and idiocies like I've never heard before. He was so bent on tripping up Sen. Cruz and making the GOP look bad that he made more of an ass of himself than he generally does on this ObamaKare gridlock subject.

ObamaKare was Hannity's subject also. All I can say is the spoutings of his too-large group of panelists was largely unintelligible due to massive, non-stop overtalking, interrupting each other, lack of any cohesion and coherence in the group's comments because of too many crazies in the group and a host that didn't care to lead the group intelligently...... and also because of Hannity's obvious smug delight in allowing chaos, yelling and showboating among the participants to become the centerpiece of the show...with no concern at all on his part about the lack of any edification being provided to his viewing public plus being patently oblivious of the frustrations and discomfort he was putting his watchers through.

That utter bore, Karl Rove, led off Greta's hour. He talked weightily and ponderously on obscure facts and figures that led nowhere and that no one gives a flying flock about.....and after a few minutes of this human sedative who had nothing new to offer, I turned off the tube and tuned into FR to find out what the latest news and outrages are....and here I am, without BOR's hysteria, without Hannity's tone-deafness and without Rove's (and the equally-boring Greta's) stale discussions of dated material numbing my brain.....and I shall remain here on this board for a while tonight......and I can only say....thank you, Lord, what a relief it is!

That is a terrific synopsis of the message from the media.
I don’t think Cruz knew how to handle O’Reilly - he had debate quotes lined up but figured O’Reilly wouldn’t understand it.

Listening to Hannity, I was wondering if anyone has asked the ones who support obamacare why they supported it and/or if they had recently received a rate increase or lost their insurance or job.

In other words try to ask them a question which requires them to think for themselves instead of spewing talking points. How does it affect them ?

I’ve turned off and tuned out FNC. BOR is an arrogant bore and I won’t watch him any more. Hannity keeps saying the same things over and over. Juan Williams and the babbling Liberal schmucks make me want to throw things at the flat screen so I turn them off the minute their faces show up.

Judge Pirro is the only one left on Fox that I can stand to watch.

You have just described why viewers of all stripes are leaving the MSM in droves for the fertile fields of the blogosphere.

That is very good for conservatives. If liberals don't leave the MSM, they will be trapped within a dying host.

Saw and heard what you saw and heard. Feel the same way as you do. With the exception of The Five and Cavuto, I won't watch O’Reilly or Greta. Hannity is one I can watch, if his panels and some of his guests interest me. Thank God for Free Republic, my refuge.

***Hannity's obvious smug delight in allowing chaos, yelling and showboating among the participants***

Which is why I have stopped watching Hannity... I have already mentioned why I stop watching O'Reilly a long time ago. Fox is NOT fair and balanced... they perhaps unwittingly advance progressive-ism by allowing the loonies to over-shout anyone with a reasonable point of view.

FR and Americans in general are going to have to come to the realization that the TEA PARTY is comprised of the people who work and produce and pay the government's bills - and the Tea Party is considered the most dire enemy by Washington and its lackey media!!! We are living in a tyranny by Stalinists and it is going to take a Hurculean effort to get this monkey off of our backs! I doubt it will happen via the ballot box.
