What follows is not a rejection.
Think of it as a disagreement among friends. ~ TD
Yes, I’m talking about FoxNews, the flagship of conservatism in media.
I do not want to wear anyone out, or overly malign FoxNews. My wife and I are turning the TV to other channels these days for a few reasons. Here are some of them.
Reason #1. We need some good news.
Everyday will have enough battles, and we have decided to start our days seeking spiritual strength first.
#2. News hype and fear mongering
As with the picture above, the reporting of some things is idiotic. It’s winter, and snowstorms happen even on the Gulf Coast. It’s not catastrophic. It’s typical.
#3. Fair & Balanced
What that slogan has come to mean is putting up with a parade of political operatives who lie without a tick of conscience.
#4. Bill O’Reilley
Listening to lecture after lecture by this buffoon, with all the Catholic commitment of Nancy Pelosi, is more than we can stand.
A little fairness & balance to my statement
We are glad FoxNews is out there. We recognize they are far better than ABC and its alphabet cousins. We certainly appreciate people like Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Judge Jeanine Pirro, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Megyn Kelly, Steve Doocy, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin, and Greg Gutfeld. We applaud all of these people and more.
It’s mostly that we are also subjected to Fair and Balanced ad nauseum, and would like to see some of the nation’s problems actually solved.
Yes, and did I mention that I can’t stand O’Reilley? And we could stand to see a little bit less of Geraldo Rivera, too.
