Why we don’t watch FoxNews so much anymore

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.

Do yourself a Big favor and cancel your TV service, unplug your TV and give it away to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. I cancelled my TV service on the day of The One’s inauguration on January 20, 2009. This is one the best decisions I have ever made. I suspected the next few years would be all The One, all The Time. And I couldn’t stomach the idea of that. I understand I wasn’t wrong. TV is little more than an agenda driven programming diversion with meaningless commercials every 15 minutes, or less, to destroy your mind and your… Read more »

I get my political news from Fox but lately, also, I have been very tired of all the bad news and need a break..
As for Bill OReilly I TOTALLY agree with you..
I think he is totally full of himself as Obama is..
Also, when I heard him say that he believed there is more than one way to get to Heaven I really took notice….

Well all broadcast media “news” is part of the general psyops to condition the public, in this case the news is meant to destroy hope and fatigue one emotionally with a constant stream of badness, often with only one story about a cute baby something to keep the viewers hooked. I avoid seeing “news” where it can be avoided, and utilize the internet for such, sadly though even ‘net news places tend to be corrupted in some fashion… like the activistpost I look at on occasion, relentlessly touting bitcoin etc. (one-world-currency)… so even when one has ‘net news sources gotta… Read more »

I couldn’t agree more! I don’t watch it all day. Sometimes watch ‘The Five’. ALWAYS turn off O’Rielley. Most arrogant idiot on the box!

Stopped watching Fox years ago. O’Reilly is an arrogant tool. There may be a few bright spots in their coverage but for the most part it is not much better than the commie crap in the MSM. “Fair and Balanced” is just another way of spreading propaganda and getting higher ratings by attracting the moonbats who need a daily fix of socialist lies..

Television is a wasteland. I just watch some sports (go SU).

OK…so I have a few perspectives on this: when we lived in an isolated Indian Reservation where we weren’t Indians and were NOT the dominant religious culture, either….I NEEDED a cable TV/alternative to what was available to me otherwise…..or I’d have been even MORE isolated than if Chris Matthews’ was my only news source. BELIEVE IT OR DON’T! There ARE millions of people today in the USA who live in our big, wild, spaces & need more than “nothing” and more than our mainstream media to know what’s “really” going on in this country. OTOH…can totally SEE what posters mean… Read more »

Same here. I’m a conservative, but I hate O’Reilly and Nancy Grace. Nancy is an asshole. I love a southern accent, but I HATE hers.

Remember, Fox is ‘better’, but they’re still controlled. They’ll talk about the EPA’s taking of water rights, which is important, but NOT about the whole picture which is Agenda 21.

the only way to get to the truth is find it yourself,otherwise you are told only what they want you to know and shown only what they want you to see. Removing the handlers is key.

What’s with all the poo pooing of reporting the winter storm?! And no it isn’t typical in the south! I sent in a request that someone post about it because there were so many interesting stories related to it: Chick-fil-A gave away free food, a baby was born on the interstate because the parents were stuck in traffic, liberal MSNBC slammed the Democrat mayor of Atlanta for being unprepared when they ignore Obama’s real wrongdoing. I thought those things were at least as interesting as many of the topics I see posted.

Bill O’Reilly blows!! Fox is better than the others but far from perfect. I get most of my news from various sources on the web.
