Why Are Liberals So Afraid of Fox News?
I wonder how many liberals who hate Fox News knew about CNN’s Senior Editor for the Middle East Octavia Nasr? I wonder before today after all the other news channels and lame stream media outlets were forced to report the news. The news that she was fired.
Those of us who watch Fox News knew the real story, the story behind the firing. If it wasn’t for Fox News, this woman’s job might still have been very secure and they could still keep their dirty secret. About the liberal, anti-Jew, anti-Christian, anti-Conservative bias of the lame stream media. Thanks to Fox News, this is one time they couldn’t hide under their liberal bias tent.
I wonder how many liberals knew about the "Tweet" this woman sent that got her fired? It’s a shame too, because those who hate Fox News, and there are many liberals who do, are missing something. They’re missing the news.
Nasr Tweeted 150 characters as it were, and it's what got her fired. She wrote with regard to the death of a Hezebullah leader. “…sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah…One of Hezbollah's giants I respect a lot."
It is fascinating to me the ignorant Hubs I’ve read and other blogs regarding liberal hatred for Fox News. They are stunningly ignorant in fact and I have found no exception to the blogs or Hubs I can stomach long enough to read with regard to this topic. They all complain bitterly and usually hatefully about Glen Beck, Hannity and O’Reily as being biased. They’ll even add examples – but most times not – because they haven’t watched Fox News for one thing.
For another, they obviously don’t know the difference between News Commentary and Fox News.
And even the commentary on Fox News has opposing view points. Let’s name just some of the liberals I see consistently on Fox:
Juan Williams (I always listen to him even though I disagree)
Bob Beckel (I really like this guy, he makes me laugh - don't agree with him, but he's always interesting)
Greta Van Sustern
Mary Ann Marsh
Alan Colmes (love him, I’ve written him and he was gracious enough to answer)
Marc Lamont Hill (fired but has been appearing on Fox again so obviously is back)
NPR’s Mara Liasson (one of my favs who is on every night)
This is by far not even a comprehensive list because it doesn’t include the non-regulars who do guest spots. I defy anyone to find me five regular conservative commentators on MSNBC, CNN, CBS or NBC. I defy them to find a conservative ever on any of their programming, be it News Commentary or just the News.
Liberals must be frightened about the truth. Is Fox News perfect? Of course not. But it’s by far the best thing out there and they will report the truth – for the most part, about what is going on and they will present even the commentary with guests who have opinions on the other side of the matter.
I had the misfortune; over the 4th of July holiday to have a conversation with a liberal (who will remain nameless). Let’s call him Joe. Joe admitted he didn’t watch T.V. news, didn’t use the internet and primarily listened to NPR on the radio. Now there’s a bastion of unbiased news for ya!
We talked about the oil crisis and I, knowing he was a vegetarian and extreme liberal, decided to find out what he thought of President Obama not doing anything (essentially) about the oil spill. His two basic points:
America is “addicted” to oil. We needed to end our dependence on oil.
The oil spill isn’t that bad.
He elaborated on this one a bit telling me that if we “dug deep down” in the sand, it’s a minuscule amount of oil washing up on the beaches.
Actually, Fox News uncovered that when we dug deep down in the sand on some beaches there was a boat load of oil – pun intended – underneath “fresh sand” indicating a possible cover-up.
But let’s get back to why I was so stunned by Joe’s comments. When I came home, I heard from one of my favorite Hubbers. She told me via private email she had the “misfortune” of having talked to someone over the 4th of July holiday who was a liberal. My friend said the liberal told her, THE OIL SPILL WASN’T ALL THAT BAD AND NOT MUCH WAS WASHING UP ON THE SHORES.
Can we spell “lemming” or “parrot” or “idiot?” Sorry about the idiot part but can liberals BE any less informed? They’re so terrified of watching Fox News because THEY MIGHT LEARN SOMETHING that would make them understand their fanciful beliefs – global warming, government is the god they need to worship and receive all sustenance from, we’re not taxed enough…the oil spill isn’t that bad ----- are-----uh…well not such good ideas! It would mean they would have to change their faith in the things they worship. And they’re not willing to do that.
I leave you with this, “To make a conservative mad, lie to them. To make a liberal mad, tell them the truth.”
