Made myself watch Fox and Idiots this morning for two hours.

I was wondering if they would say anything about the Jan. 6th committee or the text messages or the people caught up in this. Nothing. Not one word about any of that. So much for their claim of being fair and balanced. This is what their Fox diehards love. They got them to believe that if Fox does not talk about it, it`s not true.

4. I had it rough today also,

I'm 1 pound overweight where I want to be, so I ate organic oatmeal instead of bacon and eggs for breakfast. Never watch morning cable news from any network.

5. It's the old if a tree, or insurrection, falls in the forest and no one is there, is there a sound?

Fox…NO! No sound! Must now only listen to any sounds in OUR Forrest!!

9. But in 2 hours how many other earth shaking stories did they cover like?

CRT
Biden Border Crises
Smash and Grab Crises
VP Harris scandals
Biden being frail
Biden's dementia
Whatever AOC said
In praise of Joe Manchin

I glanced at Fox a couple times today at the gym they were stuck at the border.
I admire your courage to subject yourself to 2 hours of their bullshit.

33. You cannot watch Fox News 2 hours straight without a

Hunter Biden lie. There will also be 2 stories minimum about crime in democratic run cities, and a gold commercial.

been soiled by Limbaugh getting one.

21. I like this description from Salon

from a writer who did the same:

snip

In the upside-down world alternate universe created by Fox News, "real Americans" are under siege in "their own country" from nonwhite, non-English-speaking immigrants, Black and brown people more generally, and street violence orchestrated by antifa, the Black Lives Matter movement and other bogeymen

America's suburbs are being overrun by criminals (understood by default to be Black or brown), and patriotic Americans face relentless censorship and discrimination from the forces of "wokeness." Teachers and activists are spreading "critical race theory" in public schools, devoted to brainwashing white children into self-hatred.

"Socialism" is running amok and destroying America. Gay men and lesbians have ruined the institution of marriage, and trans people are sexual deviants who loiter in public bathrooms seeking to molest children — or, more to the point, seduce true American heterosexual manly men.

"Political correctness" is taking away (white) people's freedoms and oppressing them. Christmas is being destroyed. America's "Christian values" and origins are being disrespected. The country's pristine history as a "Christian nation" and the shining city on the hill are being "canceled" by leftist scolds, the 1619 Project and other America-haters. "Western civilization" (meaning some imaginary version of what used to be called Christendom) faces existential danger.

snip

22. Covering the attempted insurrection like a legitimate news agency is not in Fox's best interest.

No, they will keep doing what they are doing which is to keep plugging away at the Democrats and not covering any stories that might hurt the Republicans in a fair and balanced manner as Fox is the propaganda arm of the party.

25. That is why, if no one goes to jail

none of this matters, because those that watch FOX, OAN, NEWSMAX, have no idea anyone has even been arrested, sent or received texts, nothing. When the traitors go to jail, they may be made aware, but I would not put money on it
