And I would agree that there are none that are totally devoid of any bias. But the argument here is that Fox is not only biased, but "Republican", and to some therefore "faux"!!! And this is just ridiculous.

There are biased commentators on Fox who are Democrats and also ones who are Republican .. it's called balance.
Other than Glen Beck, please name the conservatives on CNN.

We'll wait.

There is NOTHING wrong in working hard and amassing a fortune (not that McCain did that), but there is A LOT wrong with the President of the United States not knowing any of the details about his own life. No wonder McCain doesn't have any specific policy plans.
Oh. I thought it was to show that he's going senile.

I don't know too many Americans that can relate to people who hang out with proud-to-be terrorists (Ayers and Dohrn), who have longtime pastors that scream "God d#*! America!" in the pulpit and who let slumlords hold "lavish" fundraisers for them, either. That's pretty OUT OF TOUCH to "regular life" to me.

I think "hang out" connotes friendly, on-going interaction, which is NOT the case with Ayers and Dohrn. Obama detractors are really reaching trying to find something to stick on his character.

Well .... you're right about one thing: Nothing seems to stick to this character.

Even if you leave out all the rest of it, the fact that there is one person in this country who believes it's okay that Barack Obama sat in that church for 20 years, who idolized Rev. Wright for the entire time, who deified him in his book ... that any of you can still even consider this man for President is something that leaves me literally shell shocked.

He should be sitting back in his $1.5 million home very thankful he still has his senate job.

I know I shouldn't laugh at someone who constantly misspells a three letter word but I "Daux"

Too funny!
