"Fox News contributor punched in face at pro-union protests in Michigan"

Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/12/11/fox-news-contributor-punched-in-face-at-pro-union-protests-in-michigan/#ixzz2EuegGvLd

Notice at 1:20 on the video, a guy gets up off the ground (what happened ? why is he getting up off the ground - why was he on the ground?), and then throws the punches at the Fox instigator, ie the title of the story.

In the interview with Hannity, nothing is mentioned of what precipitated the punches, that is specifically, why the guy is getting up off the ground before throwing the punches on camera.

Do Americans even know propaganda when they see it?

I guess it really doesn't matter when a bunch of Shrek and FortWayne types are the happy consumers of this bs.

The country is polarized. But you can see it as a dialectic of left and right. It may not be so bad.

The problem is that we get our news with a defined slant. So we don't get to see what actually happened, only the outcome.

But that is always the case. Even history is written by the victors. So news will be written by those who try to be the victors.

Shameless propaganda, it's disgusting.

Fox should be sanctioned for this.

There may be some examples, but the evidence to support a liberal media bias is entirely anecdotal. The mythical liberal media is the boogeyman--one of the many-- FOX "news" uses in its bedtime stories.

I not saying there are none, i just saying that you make statements on other peoples thread with little to no information to back it up.

Your subjective experiences are meaningless without the info to back it up.

I would like to see the shameless propaganda that competes with Fox!!! Other than maybe that of MSNBC which uses facts and information to rip you foolish republicans a new one night after night.

I doubt that level of bullshit exists on other networks, but please start a thread post, show us.

Bill Kristol even admitted they made the whole thing up. It's called working the refs, and our corporate-owned 1%er journos run scared. God forbid they just come out and say, "both sides are not right. Fox is lying".

There is a simple solution to your disdain of fox news. Turn the friggin channel

A functioning democracy can't have half the country deliberately misinformed about civics, science, business, politics and economics. We require journalism in the public interest.

I dunno why Fox even needs reporters.

Just put up a set of burning of crosses and parade teabaggers in front of the camera shrieking random, half-based conspiracy theories and explicit calls for genocide of non-europeans.

Politics is more complicated than you are apparently capable of comprehending.

My politics line up closely with the Eurosocialist model, but I understand US domestic politics are far, far from that so we can't have nice things like the Germans, Swedes, Danes, Canuck, Ozzie, and Norgie people have.

Democrats have been passive actors, mostly along for the ride, their mistakes have been in going along with the conservative program that has destroyed this country.

Re post 31

No arguments from me there. I hold both parties equally culpable. As well as the citizenry. As to the topic of the thread, your ass is hanging out if you can sit there with a straight face and pretend that foxnews is the problem. I hear (read) of more left wingers that seem to watch foxnews than right wingers.

So back to my original point, turn off the motherfucking tv and get out in your local community and find better use for your time. I don't even have tv anymore. My girl has a tv but no cable. The brainwash box is toxic in and of itself, regardless of if you're watching foxnews or msnbc

Clinton was hardly passive. The commodities modernization act was the fuse that lit the bomb. He should be impaled.

I've watched approximately zero hours of TV since 2003.

In my life I only had TV for a couple of years in the 1970s, 1985-1991, 2000-2003.

I have never paid a cable bill, LOL, except back in the 1980s with roommates.

But Fox is indeed the problem, since they are part of the bullshit funnel that is misinforming Americans.

This ranges from the armada of "think tanks" -- AEI, Heritage, Manhattan, Hudson, Cato, Hoover, Discovery, Heartland, etc etc that generate bullshit, the rightwing internet presence that filters it, and the rightwing corporate media that distributes it over cable TV.

Oh, also the rightwing talk radio presence that also plays its role.

The discussion in this country is biased about 90% to the right.

And thus we have this:

you guys need to go back to civics class and understand how bills become law.

Hint: The House is a majoritarian institution. No bill Boehner doesn't want a vote on can come up to a vote, since Jan 5, 2011.

This is why the House has voted to repeal PPACA at least 33 times and precious else.

Either you guys are colossally stupid or just pretending to be, and I don't know which is worse.
