Research shows that Fox News watchers/listeners are more misinformed than are people who don't watch news at all; the reason being, when asked questions about current events, people who don't watch news at all can guess correctly part of the time, but Fox News watchers/listeners believe they've learned the truth or reality from what's been fed them and when they answer they are not guessing, but basing their answers on what they learned from Fox. They believe they are informed. Therefore, when Fox News watchers/listeners answer current event questions, they get the answers wrong more often than do people who are just guessing!

For that reason, Fox News is looked down on by all serious news people and by the educated public. Only "professionals" interested in nothing but big salaries or who can't find any other work will work for Fox. Those who want to be taken seriously in their profession won't work for Fox.

Hope that helps answer your question.

MSNBC may be the worst of the bunch, but CNN is close

The problem you have is faux news is a conservative news site and they wont put forth just news but
what their audience or Murdock himself wants his faithful believers to hear. What you are calling "a Liberal position" is just reporting the news or what they know at the time it is reported. On the other hand faux news knows what they will report before the news is actually made since they must stick within their allotted story board and that means they only report what their audience wants to hear. If everybody is reporting the same thing i.e. 'The sun came up this morning' then the conservatives would call that a Liberal position because it was reported on the other stations and faux news is never wrong. Hint Look up faux in French and you'll understand.

Maybe this thread should be locked on this post?

Why? Because this thread has taken a turn from,
News, Thousands sign WhiteHouse.gov petition for Alaska to secede -- to Russia
to craziness.

The only time I ever had problems going somewhere was during my tour in the US Army in the mid 50s. I wasn't allowed to go to Berlin from West Germany because I had a clearance. I can't imagine a scenario where if someone was done any of the wrongs you suggest that the Congress wouldn't be screaming.

Would you enlighten us when anyone who wanted to renounce their US Citizenship wasn't allowed to do so? Recently the President announced the draft dodgers who fled to Canada during Vietnam can come home and not be prosecuted. I've gone to different countries during my working life and not heard of American Citizens who migrated to many of those countries. It seems the problem conservatives are upset about is with too many foreigners wanting to come to the USA.

Also enlighten us as to where you found a LIST produced by the US Government about expats who have successfully renounced their US Citizenship? And what is the IRS doing? Keeping them from forming a non for profit? I found during forty years working abroad at times the people I dealt with spoke good English and only on occasion did I have to summon a translator. Of the nationalities I met up with only the Russians and Chinese were apt to want to see proprietary information. I can't imagine anyone with your epic temper tantrums being allowed access to high tech information that would be of interest. The only person to do that was Snowden and he is presently in Putin's Russia. I'm not sure you'd want to join him except for lunch.
I have multiple degrees and developing weapons is a hobby of mine. I don't have security clearances, you would be surprised how much information is out there for people who are smart enough to know what it is they are looking at or for. If you are behind or delinquent on either student loans or child support/alimony your in a world of hurt and your passports will be revoked and you may not be allowed to renounce citizenship. You know what that is called, debt slavery. The very emotional response that is evoked from a lot of Americans especially for child support is good enough reason to leave. To many americans want to tell other people what their priorities should be and if you don't like it well you can just have all your documents revoked and go to jail, that sounds pretty totalitarian to me. I don't care how noble the cause of child support is they have taken things way to far.

The family law system in the USA is an absolute mess and no guy wants to be the ATM machine at the end of that mess. In my mind I am learning Russian because of the USA's morally bankrupt and complete failure of a family law court and I don't care to be involuntarily celibate because of an out of control court system. That would be allowing the govt to dictate my quality of life.

Well I can't wait until someone decides to build that highway underground of the Bering Sea and connect it with Russia. That will be interesting to drive through.

Guys, almost all of the media in the US is bought and paid for by rich elites and rich corporations - Fox, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS. Look at who really owns these companies and what else they own.

The enemy isn't anyone posting on this forum. We have more in common (no matter if you watch Fox or MSNBC) than these guys who are quickly ushering in a new Gilded Age and decimating our middle class lifestyles.

How long before Putin resurrects the USSR in all it's former pride and glory? How will that affect the price of geoducks in southeast Alaska?
