Skip to comments.Time for a new Fox? (Now an all pro-amnesty lineup)
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 OReilly have now fallen in line behind World Citizen Rupert Murdochs 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 Obamas second term. Is it time for a new Fox? (Wouldnt 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 medias coverage is so one-sided? Even non-PC newspapers are eager to expand Latino readershiptheyve 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 whod 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 isnt in opposition. I look forward to vigorous balanced debates between pro-amnesty Democrats and pro-amnesty Marco Rubio throughout the spring...

SecondAmendment ~:” Fox has also gone over to the gun-bashers side as well, with virtually universal support of Common Sense Gun Laws. “
Once you start to tinker with the Constitution , what’s to stop you from tinkering more , and more,..
until it no longer stands as the “Law of the Land” ??
Right now , we have NO ONE in Federal Office who respects the Constitution !
Immigration same thing ~ when citizenship means nothing to those who are sworn to uphold enforce the Constitution ,
who then upholds and enforces the Constitution ? Who is responsible, or accountable ?
Right now , we have a collusion of the media with Government - so that legitimate issues don’t get publicly aired !
We have no televised voice to the Conservative values
How else can you reach the uninformed or underinformed voters ?
Right now , the Conservative voice is relegated to the radio airwaves .
We are preaching to ourselves !!
Even some of those voices have already become ‘tainted ‘ by trying to appeal to the more RHINO philosophy .
If you want to effectively get the Conservative voice out - you have to get in front of the general uncommitted voter.
Fox used to be part of that voice ~ not any more !
If I remember right, the Judge had a regular program which is no longer in existence. I guess Fox just calls upon him when needed.
I like the guy. I suppose his no-nonsense approach offends the wussies. Personally, I believe this country would be better off with more like him. We need someone to tell it like it is.
I quit right after the '08 election and tired of it long before that, but just couldn't give it up. What was turning me off (and still does) is the way the shows are setup. Right vs. left. If a commentator was on the right, they espoused right viewpoints, left espoused left. In many cases, the arguments are specious or you can tell the person doesn't really believe what they are saying. It's like sports. Take a side and cheer your team. The content and the importance of the content is lost in the staging. It's merely cheap entertainment.
What about right and wrong? Critical thinking? Thinking for ones self?
When I do turn the news on to watch a current event, such as storm coverage, I feel like I have to trade 10 IQ points for every half hour I suffer through.
Marco Rubio was just meeting with United Farm Workers UNION seeing what they wanted in his Illegal Alien Amnesty bill
Rubio’s Plan is all Amnesty. He is an Amnesty Liberal
On the other hand they signed up Rove for another four years which surprised the bejabbers out of me. I have not seen nor heard from Dick Morris since his disaster.
Conservatism took a major body blow this last election. The blow may even have been fatal. Hence, once again- the whole country moved left and FOX will like wise move left-RATINGS!
Brit Hume was nearly fired from Fox News because of his constant fighting in studio with his ex wife, who was a producer when he hosted Special Report. His fellow coworkers considered Hume to be an a......um, something smelly you wipe in the bathroom. He lost SR host gig...but kept as a FNC contributor.
RE: my favorite these days is The Military Channel
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.
Amnesty is a non issue till the borders are closed. Period. We all worry about it too much. Close the borders. Then deal with it. I’m surely not pro amnesty, but I am a realist, Until we stop the flow into the country there is no reason to worry about the the flow out. my2cents
Both the Dems and the GOPe are pushing for an amnesty bill this year. That’s reality.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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?
