Time for a new Fox? (Now an all pro-amnesty lineup)
The Daily Caller ^ | January 21, 2013 | Mickey Kaus

Posted on 01/22/2013 9:56:09 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Does Fox News now have an All-Amnesty lineup? Looks like it. Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly have now fallen in line behind World Citizen Rupert Murdoch’s support of ”sweeping, generous immigration reform,” including a “path to citizenship.” Karl Rove was always on board, of course.

What about Fox News’ viewers? Are they going to go along like sheep? They now have no network that represents their perspective on what seems to be a key issue for Obama’s second term. Is it time for a new Fox? (Wouldn’t it be time for a new Fox anyway? That lineup has been stale for years.) …

P.S.: Is there any other issue in American politics where the media’s coverage is so one-sided? Even non-PC newspapers are eager to expand Latino readership–they’ve been in a GOP-like panic about not offending Latinos for years. (When was the last time an L.A. Times editor sent a reporter to interview construction workers who’d permanently lost their middle class jobs to cheaper undocumented labor?) Public radio stations get grants to broadcast “Latino” content, often drearily didactic and inevitably pro-amnesty. Now even the opposition isn’t in opposition. I look forward to vigorous ”balanced” debates between pro-amnesty Democrats and pro-amnesty Marco Rubio throughout the spring...

Legal immigration is changing the demographics of this country and creating more Dem voters.

87 percent of the 1.2 million legal immigrants entering annually are minorities as defined by the U.S. Government and almost all of the illegal aliens are minorities. By 2019 half of the children 18 and under in the U.S. will be classified as minorities and by 2042, half of the residents of this country will be minorities. Generally, immigrants and minorities vote predominantly for the Democrat Party. Hence, Democrats view immigration as a never-ending source of voters that will make them the permanent majority party.

The fix is already in.

I wondered, when I saw Murdoch being pilloried in London about the "reporting scandal", if that was the message to Murdoch to get in line or else.

Fox boomed because they already had the right half the viewing public to themselves, and that left the other broadcasters to split the left half between them.

If Fox shifts left, then they lose their advantage and that opens the door for others. Beck is taking his shot, and more power to him. I don’t know why others can’t do the same.

The current crop of news agencies is so poor that Al Jazeera even looks good compared to them.

In the age of cable and internet TV (which is beginning to unfold) this is the time. Maybe we should start FR-TV.

I quit watching FOX about 20 years ago (shortly after it debuted). All network news is spin, propaganda, and agenda-driven personality-cult claptrap. Find a good cartoon show to watch, instead. You’ll probably get more information. I recommend Phineas and Ferb, for beginners.

Rubio’s plan is effective amnesty. It will created 10’s of millions of new, government-dependent Americans and add an insurmountable millions more of Democrat votes.

More to the point, it'll give the White House to the Democrats for the next 200 years and kill off the American Republic.

Your kids and grandkids can look forward to reeducation camps and death camps -- for being Republican conservatives, and later on for just being white. It's the logic of power: People who have a strong tradition of liberty have to be eliminated en masse, like the kulaks.

FNC jumped the shark a long time ago. It’s filled with liberal castoffs from other propaganda organizations. Why they hire these bums is beyond me unless corporate suicide is their objective.

Other than Cavuto or their business channel they are just another liberal gab fest.

On occasion I will watch their top of the hour news and that is about it as their other programing quality has dropped off to “it’s close enough for government work” standards and working for the government is what they are about it seems.

It would be nice to see a news organization who just gave me the news and didn’t have reporters having orgasms over political candidates or parties.

That having been said, we should, as Milton Friedman said, make it impossible for immigrants to receive welfare.

Pay attention. If you give them the vote, they will put people like Bustamante and Villaraigosa in power and get welfare that way.

Amnesty = loss of America. Get it?

I hate the word "Latino" -- there is no such word in English!

It's another media-made, BS word.

I’ve been trying to tell people for some time now, if you’re paying for cable or satellite, you’re part of the problem and have zero right to complain. Seriously folks...the world won’t end if you cancel it. Your kids won’t go into convulsions, you won’t miss important world events and if your wife leaves you because of it then she is a low quality broad and you’rr better off without the dead weight.

Same here...I’ve probably watched 30 minutes total since the election and that’s only from being in other locations where FOX happened to be on. Megyn Kelly was TOO giddy election night. Done w/ her. Brett Baier has been tweeting today about Beyonce lip synching. I told him I had lost all respect for him as journalist. With all the problems facing this country that’s what he chooses to tweet about?

This last election did it for us. We hardly ever watch Fox News. We get all our news online.

It seems sensible to tie any immigration reforms to common sense voting reforms such as photo I.D.

We are reviewing the situation of going antenna and just one internet connections.

Highly recommend this for the entire family. Works here. There's Internet streaming and, gasp!...there are other TV's at other locations in the world should there be a need to watch a cable-only channel.

Can these alleged “Conservatives” do basic math?

According to the Pew Hispanic Center:

(1) First generation Hispanic-Americans vote 80% for the Democrat Party.

(2) Fourth generation Hispanic-Americans vote 60% for the Democrat Party.

Yep, can’t tell the difference between them and all the other libtard channels. I’ve given up on em.

We need a Breitbart/Mark Levin TV station. Talk about libtard heads exploding.

We reduced our cable bill and got rid of a lot of the stuff we don’t watch..including Fox. We are reviewing the situation of going antenna and just one internet connections.

What is there on TV (broadcast or cable) that you think is worth watching? I'm not being accusatory or smart-ass, just wondering, that's all.

For some perspective, 18 years ago there were progressives pushing to restrict legal immigration. Corporate news is pro-open borders.

Well, I wasn’t saying non-citizens should vote.

And anyway, America is already over. Why fight to protect a rotten country?

Problem is all that pro enforcement stuff is just a little honey to help the medicine go down.

The result will be amnesty alone with nothing else changing, just as in 1986.

My hope is now in illegals refusing to accept amnesty. Hell, they get everything they want now anyhow. Whats to be gained by becoming a citizen?

My wife finally convinced me what a phony “crooked nose” Megyn Kelly is. But the straw breaking was when she sashayed across the stage on election night. That would have made my “nana” throw up.

And I haven’t listened or watched Hannity in a long time. They’re all phony as hell.

Fox-News . . . Worthless . . . I don't even read my political magazines that I still have a subscription to . . . and I wont' renew any of them. I'm tired of RINO columnists trying to figure out what to do in 2014 and 2016 . . and NONE of them mention Palin or Bachman.

Any [non-RINO] conservative already knew this for quite some time. I know I've known it for the past few years. To me "FoxNews" has finally evolved into just another "MSN Mouthpiece Lite"
