Now that is one great answer. I wonder if it will get another answer.

Is it fair to like Fox and not like either Hannity or O'Reilly. If not then I am a dirty bird for having them on all day and not at night. In fact, I much prefer the programming from HGTV to either of them.

Also FYI I never said Fox took the video, that was probably "pool" video.

Funny how when the right tells a lie, on Fox, Rush or C-D they will defend it to the death and accuse anyone who points out their lie of all sorts of horrible things. When we point out an obvious lie of the right we're accused of having (fill in the name of any embarrassing Republican) "obsession", or "syndrome".

I guess we could say the same thing about these dittoheads and just substitute the names; Obama, Pelosi or Biden. The difference is that the right is printing lies, and we're not.

I guess when summer vacation is over, and 7th grade starts in a month or so, we'll see fewer posts from the righties.

It is a Reuters photo. So how could she call out Fox. Call out Reuters and every other news outlet that carried the photo. You are picking the wrong example to show FOX bias.

You actually should credit FOX for setting the record straight!

I am with you I think they are dopes but I wouldn't waste a second thinking about them much less starting a thread about anything they say.

Probably because the Fox News forums were running the misleading photo and not acknowledging the video that shows the truth. They had posters on the Fox News forums harping on Obama for checking out a minor. Not too different than C-D or many other forums out there.

Exactly like many other forums. Fox had nothing to do with the photo other than printing it like other forums. Fox was the first via Greta to show the truth. You should congratulate them not castigate them.

We should be glad there are commentators out there like Hannity and O'Reilly to counter what the left says (and claims).

Although I don't agree with O'Reilly on some things, I (along with millions others) agree with him on many important issues (keeping spending in check, closing the border, etc).

There is a place for them, they just are not my cup of tea.
