I rarely actually get “emotional” watching Fox News, just as I never get upset when I watch professional wrestling and see the bad guys clobber the good guys over the head with folding chairs when their backs are turned. Most adults understand that it’s staged and scripted, certainly not real. I don’t watch much professional wrestling because I’ve already seen the play and it gets boring. Admittedly I also don’t watch Fox News very much for pretty much the same reason — familiarity the script — at least not as much as I did before they fired Glenn Beck, who was so zany that I watched him regularly always on the edge of my seat feeling something big and gory was about to happen to his head. And admittedly I watch Fox News more than I watch wrestling, mainly to see the latest anti-Obama content they roll it out in time for for the next news cycle.<quoted text>
Are you joking? Hell, MSNBC is the exact replica of FOX, except in the liberal direction. Have you ever watched Rachel Maddow or Ed Shultz or Lawrence O'donnell? They are every bit as bad as Rush who is also an a$$hole. I watch Morning Joe just to understand the liberal argument, and Mika is pretty hot, but she is not professional. She rolls her eyes and purses her mouth when Joe gives the conservative side but that's okay, it's a liberal show.
How you guys get so upset about FOX is kind of funny because you get so emotional about it. It's just a TV channel, change the damned thing if you hate it so much. Oprah can't buy all the channels.
Quite frankly, I react much more emotionally to hearing Romney’s sound bites. Hearing people whining litanies of other people’s failures, especially about stuff that’s even not true, somehow grates on my nerves. If only he’d stop whining I could tolerate listening to him more easily and also be able to imagine him as president not being a whiney president.
And yes, MSNBC commentary is explicitly leftist-progressive. When it reports news, it reports actual news, not fabricated propaganda. MSNBC provides balance in the media by having the temerity to exist along side Fox News and Rush Limbaugh (think Fox on Oxycontin) and all the other conservative extremists.
