    The guy in the cheap red parka and missing teeth ranting and raving appears in many of the same bits of footage FOX used to show the hubris of the Tea Baggers

    And, yes, it's more than a little amusing that the footage -- which "supposedly" is recent footage taken of "Professional Left Wingers" -- has healthy, green Royal Palms in the back ground. But, like the meat puppets in front of the camera, the folks they hire to rework the video feeds aren't the top of their broadcast journalism classes. Getting a job working for FOX after you graduate is like getting junior management position with Walmart after you've obtained your MBA from the University of Phoenix.

    However, more to the point: who the Hell has time to be a "professional" left winger? When did this get to be a job option? Do the local Job Service Offices know about this "specialty" and can they or do they hook "professional" left wingers with part-time/full-time "professional" left winger jobs? First I've heard of it. What a way to help those currently out of work. "Let's make them 'Professionals' so we can completely dehumanize them."

    It amazes me how gullible television viewers are in the USA. Although it can be said of most countries, I'm quite certain the USA has pretty much cornered the market on grooming the dumbest, unquestioning, non curious population sitting around with big appliances in their living rooms telling them stories or showing them what the world looks outside their windows.

    There is a saying (dicho) among the folks I hang out with that is quite pervasive throughout all of Europe, not just Spain: In Europe we have friends. In the USA they watch Friends on television.

    Haha. Nice catch on the palm trees.

    I wonder if those are Unionized Professional Left-Wingers, or scabs they 'bussed in' from Minneapolis?

    The film has been identified. It turns out it was from a Union Solidarity rally in Sacramento California from YEARS ago.

    Where are the busses? I'm in Minneapolis! Once I've finished pruning our palm trees just off the lanai, I'm available!

    The majority of the country.

    And anyone with half a working brains knows that there were rallys all around the country voicing their (ignorant) support for the greedy unions this past weekend. And those rallys stemmed from the proper actions the Wisconsin Governor is taking against the unions. Clearly that is what they were showing.

    Jesus...if your going to reach for straws...at least make an effort.

    No they don't. It's been proven time and time again that collectively more people get their news from sources like CNN and MSNBC. The only place where Fox has an advantage is with TV ratings. However, more people get their news from the internet than any other medium and that is where other news organizations such as CNN & MSNBC completely trounce upon Fox News.

    Yeah... thousands of people trying to maintain collective bargaining rights for a job that barely pays them a working/middle class salary are the "greedy ones". And you call these people ignorant? :rolleyes:

    sho94_2000 claims the "majority" of the USA gets its news O'Rielly and FOX. There are more than 300 million people in the USA. It's not possible for ANY network (especially FOX Cable News) to have a viewership more than 150 million drooling 'Mericuhns during a whole week. Talk about making up viewer shares. Someone alert the Nielsens.

    Here Iam again to counte you liberalsr, talk about being mind numbed robots, lets see, Fox news is one conservative view of our country and the world around us. While the rest of the news media channels all 100% liberal, so what gives? We have one poor measly station that conveys conservative sentiments, all the rest are your lame ass view point. I quess you wont be happy until every last station is 100% lockstep liberal. Point, counter point brother, otherwise how sad it would be if the only view was the wrong headed, progessive socialist, redistributionist liberal viewpoint. Well to you, fox is the counter point, hey liberals dont you think its sad that your liberal brethern would deny a man his views all because he differs with him. I will tell you whats funny, you scream and shout and write how horrible fox news is but why is it they are smoking all the other liberal medias outlets put together in the ratings at almost every timeslot????? I quess all of us conservative are just plain stupid at least according to the left wingers. Remember liberalism is a mental disorder, maybe you guys need a dose of Michael Savage.

    I couldn't get past this first clause; I was laughing too hard.

    Thank you for proving my point about today's modern conservative more concisely than I could ever have hoped to do, flame.

    Do you know who Foster Brooks was? I hear your posts in my head in his voice. It has the effect of almost making your posts seem coherent.

    Why do conservatives always have such limited skill when it comes to communicating with proper grammar and spelling? Are they innately retarded?

    The only thing I enjoy about Foxnews is looking at Megyn Kelly.

    If flame80 is a counter for liberalism on this board, then Bill Clinton never had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky.

    The liberal or progressive has never worked in any society so why are you liberal progressives so hell bent on pushing that on America? There is no sign of success of this crazy platform.

    Instead of ranting. How about addressing the original topic of this thread. It's about Fox News using fake footage of the Wisconsin Protests. There, you're up to speed.
