The Obvious Solution to the FoxNEWS/Nutroots Problem

All FoxNEWS needs to do is announce that out of respect for the Dem's wishes, they won't be covering any of the Democrat candidates in the next election cycle.

Lawsuits and claims of censorship are sure to follow. Next thing you know, Kos and the rest of the loony tunes will be demanding equal time.

Simple done.

That is exactly what fox should do because Comedy Central won't cover the Dems..nor will TVLand or the Cooking Channel.

Fox could concentrate on what they do best...pulling stories out of their assess.

Larkin:

Yeah, I'm sure the Dems are dying to get more "fair and balanced" coverage like this by Steve Doocy about the then 6-year old Barack Obama:

DOOCY: We should also point out that Barack Obama's father is the one who gave him the middle name of Hussein. And the thing about the madrassa, and you know, let's just be honest about this, in the last number of years, madrassas have been, we've learned a lot about them, financed by Saudis, they teach this Wahhabism which pretty much hates us. The big question is was that on the curriculum back then? Probably not, but it was a madrassa and the big question is whether or not any of these revelations about the fact that he was a Muslim -- right now I understand he does go to the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, although not a regular parishioner -- but raised as a Muslim, went to a madrassa.

In their fair and balanced way, Fox never pointed out that "madrasa" translates to English as "school".

Larkin, actually, it is not simply a "school," as you suggest. It is a school for orthodox sunni muslims. You can argue about the implication of that, but you can't argue that the word means simply "school," as in ABC's.

==========================

If you can ban me, do it, but it's for style, not content.

Matt:

Paul,

Excellent suggestion. I think it would work brilliantly. The othe option might be for FOX to suggest they will cover the Dems day and night and make sure the viewers get a "faif and balanced" view of the candidates. The choice between lots of free but open and honest coverage would drive the dems nuts.

Yeah, I can see where the MSM is much more balanced than Fox.

And I guess in true arrogant and elitist fashion, you libs must be calling all the Fox watchers (larger audience than CNN and MSNBC combined and soon to pass CBS news) stupid for watching "editorials" rather than news.

Publicus:

Do you know that the "study" which "proves" that Fox "News" (sic) is fair and balanced also concludes that the ACLU and the NRA are both centrists?!

Do you think that the ACLU is moderate? I think it's liberal.

Do you think the NRA is moderate? I think it's conservative.

Do you think that Drudge is slightly left of center?! (As asserted by this "study")? I think it's conservative.

Publicus ... Since when is Jay Tea the entirety of Wizbang? That is who said he doesn't quote polls.

Nice try though.

And it is rather amusing to have you complain about a comment that is not 100% in line with the original post topic, although closely related and completely relevant ... seeing as how lefties just love to comment on whatever subject tickles their fancy at the moment - which is usually some delusional, fevered ranting arising from a near-critical case of BDS.

Gianni:

Seems as if uberlibs want to use the polls they agree with, and criticize those that dont toe the party line.

Its pretty friggin hilarious to me that any lib with a brain cares to comment on Fox, when they have abc cbs nbc msnbc cnn nyt, etc all carrying their leftist water.

Like tass, these news 'outlets' are more concerned with their ideology, than facts. You sphincters complain about Oreilly, hannity, etc, but funny, you never mention matthews, krugman, dowd, etc.

Fox is way nearer to the middle than any of the aforementioned outlets, easily proven by all the lib talking heads appearing their any day. Beckel, davis, schwartz, powers, that beatch that sounds like carol channing, colmes, etc .

You could of course prove you have a brain, and arent biased, and shows us 1 other network that devotes as much air time to opposing views (?) as Fox does.

Heralder:

The discussion extended into the realm of sampling issues if I recall, which will dirty any poll result.

That's the shortcoming of polls; that they will say whatever you want them to say depending on who you ask. My original issue was the extrapolation methods, but Brian at least helped me clear up the math on that.

Regardless, it's not just conservatives, but liberals as well that quote and discredit polling at will.

suck on that DEM's
How about a Fox documentary on how Mormons believe that Smith guy was a prophet?
How about revisiting the 2000 campaign in SC..how old is McCain's black baby now? ...and how did he aid the VC when "he talked under torture"?
So much to do so little time...

Maybe fox needs to verify exactly what socks berger stole from the archives, or why fridge jefferson still has a job, or why pelosi inferred there'd be a 5 day work week, but didnt say it was mandatory just once a week, and maybe they need to verify how many shady deals reid, pelosi, etc have been involved with, Lord know the lib media gives the dems a pass.

OOps, I forgoe gloria wise, and oil for food, but, then again, so have the dems.

Don't worry we're getting there. First, Bush needs to subvert the media (Foxnews). Then, Bush needs to subvert the cops (FBI and Justice Department).

Once that's done... welcome to the Internment Camps.
