In my opinion for whatever its worth

Last edited Fri Jul 8, 2016, 09:19 AM - Edit history (1)

I am putting the blame for the seemingly total co lapse of this country squally in the lap of FOX NEWS . The constant drumbeat of who is to blame for your lot in life the blacks the poor moochers stealing your money the mexicans stealing your job, OBAMA and the democrats coming to steal your guns and lock you in detention camps at abandon Wal-Marts to OBAMA cancel ling Christmas and not letting you pledge allegiance in school to OBAMA being in bed with Muslim terrorists , I could go on and on but the hate delivered everyday on Fox and to a lesser extent talk radio ( and because of their success) all other media is classic divide and conquer and the viewers of this are told every hour on the hour to be AFRAID of everything and everyone. I see everyone blaming Obama today for the shootings in Texas and the racial divide in the U.S. but the Fox bullshit has been turned up to 11 since 2008 and caused people to have no respect for the president or authority in general. Don't like the law or policy you don't have to obey just do as you want because government is bad and freedom you know. Sorry for the rambling. Peace

25 years to bring the country to its knees.

At the same time, the MSM has totally abdicated its responsibility and abandoned any pretense of proper journalism.

a bumpersticker or overhear a RW comment I know exactly where it came from. I feel bad for people that have swallowed the koolaide ... and bad for our country.

And can still the the world is way better with them than without. But yeah, I agree Danascot - can pretty much tell whose mouth was dripping poison on the wingnut side.

a long and illustrious history of glorifying bigotry and violence in America, and, most destructively, the perpetuation of the "manifest destiny" fairy tale by the American white males.

but we do hold them responsible for stirring up hate by knowingly posting distorted news.

I never watch Fox, but in searching for something else yesterday I had it on for a short time. They were talking about what Comey said and totally changed and lied about his reasons for his decision.

People who are decent citizens are being fed hatred by commentators who are paid to lie.

people listen to that drivel ALL.FUCKING.DAY.
you dont have the body language out there like you do on teevee. you dont have anyone coming on there and giving "the other side" such as it is, like they do on teevee.

you have to sit down to absorb teevee, mostly. but the radio is with you all day, whispering in your ear.
lot more rw hate religion on the radio, too.

And should be viewed as such.

They sell hate, and fear.

That's what terrorists do.
