Since the passage of the health care bill Obama has been out promting it at townhall meetings. He has been clarifying and correcting misconceptions about it. I've noticed that CNBC,MSNBC and CNN have been covering these meetings but FOX News isn't showing them. Why not? Does Fox news want it's viewers to stay mis informed on this bill?

Why do they need to..the bill is passed and signed. Obama is out trying to get John Q. Public bought in. Obama is in campaign mode for a bill already passed and law.

Since they don't even know what's in it..what is there for Fox to report ?

Because they're FOX and they don't want to clear any misconceptions, it would interrupt their usual hate fest.

Yes. They did something similar during Obama's Q&A session with GOP on GOP's invite as well, just as soon as they realized the answers weren't favoring the rhetoric they propagate to their viewers, they cut off the transmission.

And you think Fox isn't reporting on what is the law? And you think republican politicians, and you, have stopped asking questions and debating with others in the forums? And you think Fox News and Republicans haven't been in campaign mode, since Nov 4, 2008.

Fixed News has an agenda to push...and what Obama is doing to help this nation isn't aprt of it.

They want the rednecks and ignoramuses who watch it believe that what's going on isn't happening at all. They are just overlooking the truth-they are creating their own version of history to support their **** poor agenda.

Obama is a lying POS..! I can't stand to watch him any more. When they show the socialist pig, I change channels. The bill was so bad he is still tying to sell it to the fools. Most people now know what a loser he is, and this bill is doomed, just as is the fool trying to sell it.

I guess Fox doesn't want its viewers to see people cheering, clapping and vocally showing support for the president and his policies.
And they sure don't want to show him talking about how the sky still hasn't fallen.

I'll take what Verizon, and John Deere and all those others who have their folks analyzing this bill say over the government.

Now I'm reading about the fallout of the government taking over student loans.

If the government won't tell us, then I plan to find out from those affected by it and what they report they are doing.

But you go ahead and drink the koolaid that all is fine and we're spending our way out of this recession.

Because Obama is not telling them of any ramifications from this bill.
Only the good stuff..everyone keeps their doctor...no one taxed.

Did he talk about the 21% medicare cut on 4/1 (today)? Did he talk about Corporate tax changes ?
Did he talk about small business and cash outlays for having over 50 employees and no health care ?
