    ^Liberal? I'm a former Republican now registered IND, who comes from a family comprised of almost nothing but Republicans. NOBODY who knows me would call me 'liberal'.

    So anyone who doesn't want to be lied to by our news networks is a 'liberal'? lolol :dunno:

    I started that thread earlier in the Et Cetera, Et Cetera forum rather then the political forum, because I thought it belonged more to the, all political jokes aside, entertainment arena. :smile:

    The best part is the, not so subtle, official statement by Fox News Channel's head of programming Bill Shine:

    "‘Real American Stories' features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and we believe Mr. Smith's interview fit that criteria. However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career."

    I like Palin and I am dissappointed they opened themselves up to this issue.

    I think they need to make sure they do not use the liberal and democratic party's tact of lying and misrepresenting in order to get what they want. But then again - it has worked well for the dems....

    This issue isn't about democrats or liberals. It is about Fox program producers using lies and misrepresentation in order to get what they want - which is nothing new for them. If you advised them to not resort to these tactics, you would be engaging in a fruitless task. They love using these tactics. When they get called out for them it seems to me that they would retort "Never you mind. There's no such thing as bad publicity."

    This is just par for the course at Fox 'News'. They are an entire channel deficient in basic ethics. And their response to his objection simply classic crap slinging. :sad:

    Yeah, if you don't agree with the Fox Kool Aid set, you're automatically a liberal. I used to be a solid Republican, myself. Fortunately, Ronnie cured me of believing in the GOP.

    I can't even keep track of all the lying, which is the point of course. Fox News it why Media Matters has over 7k clips.

    Have you ever watch the show she hosts? She doesnt interview ANYBODY because its not an interview type show? These gripes are laughable when you know what your talking about. Seriously these critiques are about as dumb as criticizing Oprah in the new "Life" series on the Discover Channel for not ever being out in the wild. I would say think about it but I probably went over some of your heads already.

    Your metaphor is more laughable. Are we now comparing land & earth to an actual person to come up with such an ill-witted rhetorical comment?

    If you want to think people can't tell the difference between human beings and natural objects that can't rationally think for themselves, then by all means act as if you said something groundbreaking. I'd tell you to think about what you type next time but I'm sure creating a statement that actually makes ANY level of common sense escapes you.

    As I'm from Europe, I've got a pretty good 'helicopter view' of the political situation in the US.

    But I just don't get it why people can still be in favour of somebody like Sarah Palin. I think it's rather clear that the only reason she's so big right now, is that McCain needed a female running-mate. Not because he needed Sarah Palin.
    And after those mistakes in the media (not being able to tell which newspapers she reads, stating that she's experienced in foreign policy because Alaska is next to Russia, cheating on her hand during an interview) and now this, people still believe in her!

    How on earth could you want such phoniness ruling over your country?

    And don't get me wrong, I'm not a socialist or a liberalist at all. My political view is at the far right wing, call me a conservative. But that doesn't mean that I agree with every conservative bill, nor does it mean that I like every conservative politician, because I can think of my own.

    To be fair, it all depends on the definition of "to host a show" versus "to interview". I am not going to research press releases, but I have seen pre-airing promotional material that promised:
    "The first installment of Fox News Channel's 'Real American Stories' hosted by Sarah Palinairs this Thursday night at 10pmET, preempting "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren. The debut episode will include guests ranging from country singer Toby Keith, to rapper and actor LL Cool J, to..."
    It doesn't seem to matter anyway. Although the episode won the time slot (more than all other news programs combined) it had less viewers than the same time last week (perhaps due to the holiday!?), and it shed viewers throughout the hour (it went late for the east coast!?). It will be interesting to see what the numbers are again tomorrow night. I suspect this was something very easily put together by FOX in otherwise dead airtime to recycle some old interviews and to capture the advertising revenue they attract whenever Palin's name is evoked.

    I don't think shooting wolves from a helicopter qualifies a person to host a nature show. Neither does campaigning to open up the remaining Alaskan wilderness to oil and natural gas exploration. But hey, what do I know. I'll stick to reading John McPhee and Edward Abbey thanks.

    Edward Abbey, yes, by all means. Abbey good. Palin bad. Hmmm. . . how does one monkey wrench Palin on FOX? Throw a bucket of water on her and watch her melt like the Wicked Witch of the West? Whose to say it might not work?

    Midlife...you didn;t like Ronnie? Were you an ATController???

    I don't think Sarah will be president and I don;t even like the show.

    She is however, refreshing and politics needs that.

    Naturally, I feel this way partly because I agree with her on several key issues.
