Freep Foxnews! I'm getting sick of this!

Posted on 04/27/2003 4:50:47 AM PDT by ConservativeMan55

I've e-mailed them once, and it doesn't seem to be getting their attention.
Julian Phillips on the weekend Fox and Friends is blatantly shoving his liberal crap down the throats of the viewers.

Not only that, but he keeps calling our President just "Bush" Here is an example of what he has been saying...

"Bush needs to be held accountable if we don't find these weapons of mass destruction. I understand that they are hard to find, but thats the only reason Bush went in there in the first place."

He said over and over virtually the same thing yesterday, and I e-mailed Foxnews, and nothing has changed.

I agree. I am not even turning it on this morning, as he makes my husband extremely angry.

We might do better to email Brit Hume and Sean Hannity - and let them know your freepers. They know full well how many there are of us. And Brit is news director I believe.

One time Mike..the other host on the weekend edition said something Conservative-like...a conservative opinion..I think it was something about abortion. Mike is against it.

Anyways, Julian said

"Your editorializing, you can't do that because we are supposed to be balanced"

Juliet said, "have you seen this show before Julian"

Julian said, "Well I guess its ok here, but you couldn't say something like that on Foxnews live"

Hey...what the heck.

By and large, FOX is pretty well balanced and even tilts a bit to the "right" side.

If we start bitching about the few liberals they give airtime to we end up sounding like the Robbins-Sarandon crowd.

Change the channel. How is this guy disrupting the Fair and Balanced credo of the station? Everyone gives their opinion on the show so you should expect to hear something you don't agree with. That's what makes it fair and balanced. What fun would TV be if you agreed 100 percent with everything the anchors said?

I agree with lack of respect our President has gotten from Phillips.

I would bet that if you called him that (Phillips) he wouldn't like it.

I just sent this and I advsie you all that F&F needs to see some series mail on this.

your audience is turning on you over Julian and his liberal BS and disrespect for the President.

tell this little Son of a Bitch it's either MR. Bush or President Bush or the President, it ain't just BUSH

I've been telling you for months that this creep is going to kill your morning show, and now there is a full blown internet movement against him and the show.

Whoever he's blackmailing to stay on the show better get wise....

NO One wants this clown in OUR Homes for 3 hours, it's bad enough having him deliver the news, but he sucks on this show and you keep him there, and he is going to cause a backlash

As a loyal viewer I am warning you that keeping this little disrespectful clown on F&F is killing you with your base audience and the folks hate him...

You'ver worked so hard why are you pissing it all away

I just sent the following message:

Fox & Friends is growing to become more a monument to the quota system of Affrimative Action than an informative factual presentation!

Dump the political correctness and aim for excellence based on facts.

You can email them but remember they control the game. Last week OReilly was giving salon.com hell for their stance on the war and mentioned those that wished it went bad and said their opinion should be discarded to which I agree.
But I emailed Oreilly about Ellen Ratner who is one of Foxs paid contributors and reminded him of what she said and that she was not mentioned by him and as far as I know Fox still paid her and the media did not take a stand against her. I accused them of covering for one of their own and I told him he would never address this and he did not.
I am beginning to believe that all of the news has an agenda and tries to stir us up to the point of watching.
I had quit watching Oreilly some time back and recently started back but he is just as controlling as all the so called "Mainstream Media" and after CNN being exposed I am about to the point I think all of the news is manipulated and dont trust any of them.
Is there anything left in America that is not orchastrated for the effect of being entertaining?
I believe most professional sports have become like wrestling and now the news is becoming like a TV producer pictures it rather than what it truly is.
Is their any truth left in the America media.

"Not only that, but he keeps calling our President just "Bush""

In many circles - professional, social, political - it's considered perfectly correct to simply use the last name when referring to even the most distinguished people.

I have to agree - let the guy say what he wants. The mantra is "we report, you decide" right? Look at Hannity & Colmes. We can't start writing Fox to have them remove Alan Colmes. Let's not sound like the libs, who try to change anything that resembles the opposite of their opinion. If the news were constantly full of what we thought it should sound like, how often would we watch??? I'm not saying "bring on Peter Jennings" but a few differing viewpoints on your favorite news channel is overall a good thing!

FOX has many whose opinions we do not listen to. Seems as though there is at least one on every show. We have a very active mute button and if it seems the liberal and their retarded opinions will be on for a long time, the weather channel is always a click away.

It's just that when conservatives are given equal airtime with liberals in a fair setting, they are able to destroy the liberals with the superiority of their arguments.

Please, everyone, if you send an e-mail, do not discuss "affirmative action" or anything like that! It opens us to charges that we are simply opposed to Julian because he is black. That is not my position, and if the people in charge think that this is the case, they will ignore our complaints!

Here is the e-mail I sent:

Dear Fox News,

Please instruct Julian that the President of the United States is not to be referred to as "Bush." I also do not care to hear Julian's opinions and attitude injected into every discussion about foreign policy.

There is only so much loyalty available from Fox viewers, you know, and subjecting weekend viewers to this level of unprofessionalism and disrespect is losing viewers. I have turned off the weekend program until I am notified that some changes are being made.

Sincerely,

Real name and town

it's not acceptable, it's not polite and it is not the correct way of addressing the President.

It's disrespectful and coming from this guy is an inslut to all of us.

Glad I'm not the only one that caught those remarks this morning but I can live with it. The libs have been hammered so hard these past few weeks the rest of the nation is realizing they don't count for much anyway. And I always have the option of using those two all important buttons on the remote, the on/off button and the channel changer if I don't like what they say.

The solution to your problem is simple. When this guy comes on, turn the channel. Why beat Foxnews up over it?
Sean Hannity gets emotional to the point of being obnoxious at times. I think this is equally damaging. Point being, they are still on our side. Don't sweat the simple stuff man...

I watched this. I think all opinions should be aired. Let them spout. How we gonna know how they are thinking if we only get one side? I can't believe you all are so upset. I think the exchange it is interesting. It allows for rebuttal, doesn't it? And that is good.
