Hindsight is 20/20

The election was running tight and I was beginning to see through the man I had helped elect last term and as hard as it was for me to switch parties, I simple had to. It is like getting your hands so dirty you can’t get them clean. I was seeing this man for what he really was. I had no idea about so many of these things. They sure hadn’t made the news. I just felt the need so bad to make up for the wrong I had done voting for him.

Now Benghazi was in the news and I could not find out a thing about it, just lie after lie about it being over a video. Obama, Hillary and Rice all claiming this! This still did not answer why they were not helped. This battle lasted 7 1/2 hours!

This was such a horrible thing to happen and news not covering it? I was going everywhere online asking questions and screaming about being left so in the dark about this and it was as if our government had better things to do. How could that happen to four of our men? They didn’t get time to even call for help? We always zoomed to the aid of any American servant. Always. No president in history would be guilty of leaving men to die, surely this one wouldn't, no matter how I distrusted him, surely he would not get by with something like this.


Lies, lies, lies....why? It makes a big difference!

Stevens repeatedly asked for help long before his last night alive but was refused! Why?

Judge Jeanine's thoughts/ be entertained and learn a lot!

Why Obama hates Fox News.

It's the summer of 2008 and Barack Obama is beginning to slip in the election polls.

He blames Fox News for his election worries.

He agrees to a secret meeting at New York's posh Waldorf Astoria hotel with the head of Fox News, Roger Ailes and other top honchos of their parent company News Corp.

The meeting goes into meltdown mode as a finger wagging Obama furiously vents his anger against Fox and their top conservative host Sean Hannity.
Have you heard about this?

Probably not, but Newsmax magazine, in a just-released special report "Obama Hates Fox News," reveals how Obama's war on Fox News all began, how it unfolded, and even predicts what will happen in the future.

Searching for answers

I was really agitated and someone, somewhere, accused me of watching Fox News. What did they mean by that? I asked a friend.

They said because Fox News covers the news and doesn’t care who likes it. They do? Well let me at them! I had just been going to CNN headline news, sure they covered everything. They always had, I thought.

I soon found out about Benghazi and for the months since then I have had a real education. I can barely get through a day without finding out what is really going on in my world. How any honest person could put this place down I just have to wonder. Yet I know many do! I know any government would rather not have them, but we the people so need them!

No one else gives us the news! Fox does not miss a thing either. If it is newsworthy, you will hear it there. I thank God for them and that America at least have them. Believe me you are in the dark without them! Judge for yourself, if you are a law abiding American and have America's interest at heart, Fox News is for you.

Like today all the Benghazi cover-up is getting ready to be uncovered. (I am hoping.) (Was sure wrong there huh?) Survivors of Benghazi claiming they have had their jobs threatened if they talk. I believe them and probably they are afraid of more than that but they are not making that claim. The deceased families are all glad these people are coming forth, they want answers and justice for their loved ones. {The only way we are going to have the whole truth released to us by all these threatened or otherwise is to get this corrupt party out of power! My parents were Democrats and so was I (probably naturally) but I saw the light and I know my parents would have too! They would never in a million years support the murdering of unborn babies and then on top of that having their body parts for sale!}

All of a sudden today the FBI come out with three photos from way back then. Some coincidence, huh? Did they just find a video with the pictures on them all of a sudden? Hm.

Fox is covering the abortion doctor on trial for murdering babies; are you hearing about that anywhere? They have broken the story of an atheist allowed to protest Christian soldiers talking about their beliefs. Heard that? Bet not. Will Obama allow those rights taken away while being so careful of a terrorists right to be silent? Christianity it seems is being choked out by this administration while protecting one in particular. Now our soldiers could be court marshaled over religion. Who doubts this? Watch Fox, find out the truth. Fox will keep me up to date on all news, I don't have to wonder. I don't have to agree with everything they think about the news either, different ones there have different opinions but at least I get the truth to even decide!

Fox does not let anything like this just die, and I will find out every little thing there is to know about what is going on with that as the news breaks! They are not politically correct! They are what real news reporters are about. They don’t kiss butt let me tell you and guess who does not like them? Anyone who does not want the truth known! Anyone who does not want us thinking for ourselves! Fox doesn't make up the news, they just find it and put it out. Both parties are represented I would guess on about every issue, if not everything.

Yeah, they get mentioned and put down now and then. I know no politician wants to be on their fighting side and this is where you can go and see any honest politician we have talk and tell you even more! (Some dishonest ones too I must admit.)

I love it and I just can’t say it enough. It is also very entertaining too. The Five is a must see at 5 each evening to not only get the headlines but an hour of entertainment. These are not just news people but have some high credentials. There are really seven; alternating. Some older folks may not care for them, they do get a bit wild and crazy. With two juvenile old men and a leggy blonde and brunette, it can get a bit off color now and then...oh, and there's Eric who gets everyone back on track.

I just think everyone at Fox News are very serious about their work and their thoughts of the US and finding and sharing the news, They investigate and take a real interest, it isn't just a job to them, it is their life. I can see that and that makes me trust them, love them and thank God for them!

I still remember when I could find no answers. I cannot imagine being there ever again. Not as long as Fox News is in business!

I'm 76 years old and like the Five. When I first got cable a dozen years ago I discovered Fox news and it did change my perspective. It may have been an influence in my becoming a conservative or finding that I am one.

Thank you Randi, I believe anyone who gives them a chance would feel this way. If you want more than local news and be up to date on what is going on you almost have to watch them. Others may get to it eventually, maybe not.

I am a fan of Fox news but you still have to keep your eyes open and understand that many of my favorite programs are OPINION programs. That means they are not hard news. I do believe they try to be fair and balanced. I love Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum in the morning as well as Megyn Kelly at noon on America Live. Shepherd Smith on Studio B leans left if you listen to him. I am not knocking Shep. I have been watching him for more years than you can imagine when he was on a local Fox station. Just remember that O'Reilly, and Hannity are way to the right and are not truly good examples of regular conservatives. I love to watch Greta Van Susternan/On The Record and I believe that she is not really a conservative at all; but she wants to get to the truth. Anyway, since the election I decided to spread out my viewing a bit and get a second opinion. I do not want to be a victim of GroupThink. Fox gets a bad rap but they are still high in their ratings so a lot of people are watching in spite of their reputation. Thanks for the provocative and thoughtful hub.

Thank you Smireles. Yes some there are really let's say mad at this administration for all that goes on unpunished, but I can't say I wouldn't be just like them.

Smireles 3 years ago from Texas

Well, I am not surprised that people are mad at this administration. My mind is boggled as the way things are done in this Administration. I do believe that the President is sincere in his beliefs and actions. I do not agree with him. I actually think that a lot of people do not agree with him but they do not keep up with politics and do not know what is happening.

Polly, what I find humorous is that the Left refers to Fox News as Faux News. Meaning, of course, they falsely report the news. All I can do is point out CBS and Dan Rather, ABC and accusing the Tea Party each time a gunman kills innocent people. Then you have NBC. I don't think I even have to say anything about this American Pravda. They are so far to the Left, Obama appears as an actual moderate in comparison. Nice hub. Incidentally, would you believe has unpublished 7 of my hubs this past month? Some are 3 years old! lol

David, great to hear from you, how are you doing? I would guess you for a very informed person. I have heard more than a few put Fox down, many I think not even American, although being here; so why would they? lol

I probably have hubs that old, good idea to go check on that I guess. I am not here much except to have a question now and then to let everyone know I am still at it.

I could never get past the slanted opinion blasting on Fox News, but they really are not making me take them seriously with girls in tight dresses riding up their legs. What kind of a message is this? I think the human body is beautiful and all that, but the women in the above pictures look like Barbie dolls. If you think Fox News is objective, however, you are being played like a fiddle.


Pollyannalana profile image

Pollyannalana 3 years ago from US Author

Personally none of the FoxNews women turn me on, I don't even like them all, but if I want to know what is happening I have no choice but go there. Mostly I listen as I go about my business in the house, maybe you could try that.

I did watched yesterday as they showed the survivors testify. Did you find that anywhere? I like to keep on top of things. Did you see the Democrats not question or seem to have any concern for these four dead in Benghazi but only try to tear down the Republicans as they always do. Personally I think someone's head should roll for Benghazi, maybe two. They chose to have those men die...chose. Someone is guilty of murder.

Writer David 3 years ago from Mobile, AL

Wondering, are the other major networks (ABC, NBC, CBS) being objective? If you believe they are, it is you who is being played like a fiddle. There is no such thing as unbiased reporting these days. You should have realized that by now.

The average media consumer's view of the ethics and reporting quality of a news organization, like one's moralistic feeling for a given political party, is usually a result of whose ox he thinks is being gored.

I miss the days I listened to O'Reilly and Hannity on talk radio. I used to listen to them when I worked at a job that I could listen to whatever I wanted to on my headset. I no longer have that luxury at my current job. Unfortunately we don't have cable so I don't get Fox news but maybe that is a good thing because then I would be a news-watching junkie! I do go to fox news' website if I want to get truthful information. Great Hub!

Good news Cari Jean, you can get them online for free! I do watch them every day at least to find out what is going on in the world. I always love The Five which tops on about everything. Other news places right now are started to leak a little of what is going on but nothing like Fox! If you can't get it let me know and I will send you a link. I like O'Reilly too but he gets my blood pressure up some! lol

Well they claim they are number two now so I guess more people are watching them now whether to hear the truth or build up ammunition against the truth, still good to know less will be in the dark about what is happening. Thanks for commenting Stove and Home.

Fox News is where you go for the truth? I don't expect to learn the truth of any one media source. By reading/watching a variety of them I can compare points of view, which is all you can expect from a news organization. If all you want to hear is what you think already, find a commentator you like and tune everything else out. Fox and MSNBC are both very good at providing many of those.


Pollyannalana profile image

Pollyannalana 2 years ago from US Author

Well dear KC, waiting and waiting for news about Benghazi is what took me to Fox news and their opinion which is way lighter than mine had nothing to do with it. They do not hide or avoid reporting news our President does not want us to hear about, they put the news out there as it is happening and that is what I want! That is the way all news use to be. I have not caught them up in a lie so far and they have someone to represent both sides when it come to opinion. Wish our government was that open and fair. So hide from the news and truth if you want. Not me!

I commented earlier that I keep my TV tuned to Fox News most of the time and I do. However, you do have to check other stations to see what they are talking about. I try to catch Fox News Sunday, Meet The Press, and various network news programs on Sunday. I also like George Stephanoupolis, Anderson Cooper (CNN) and I have watched Shepherd Smith on Fox for so many years he actually was on Fox local here in Texas before Cable News. He seems to lean liberal and I get mad at him, but it feels like watching an old friend so I give him a break. haha. The only people I DO NOT like are those who are so left or right leaning that they parrot their opinions over and over and over and over and over till you feel nauseous.


Pollyannalana profile image

Pollyannalana 2 years ago from US Author

Well of course Smireles that is true and I think I am smart enough to not be brainwashed unlike people who will not see the man in power for what he is. I read yahoo all day long talking about biased! But you read those people commenting. Ha! They, like me, know what is really going on. I also listen to Walid Shoebat who is a former terrorist now Christian and you talk about getting some facts, well you will want to look him up, believe me. It ain't like listening to no preacher.


Smireles profile image

Smireles 2 years ago from Texas

I am sorry, Pollyannalana if you thought I was pointing my comment at you or implying that you do not understand that. I was thinking more along the lines of Fox News Contributor, Alan Colmes, who I have never heard say anything other than the left leaning doctrine that he believes and he never, ever is open to other opinions. People like that are not helpful to making change and in my opinion are extremely dangerous when people follow them. An exchange of ideas is what makes our country work. I also think that most of the people who hate Fox News have never watched enough of the programs to get a good view of what Fox is all about. Fox tries to be fair and balanced and some times I get really upset with people like Kirsten Powers, Joe Trippi, and of course Alan Colmes.

Pollyannalana 2 years ago from US Author

Don't know why my comment here would not go in but as I was saying no I did not think you meant that about me, guess I was still venting on a previous comment. You are right that ppl do not actually watch Fox News who knock it or they would see how wrong they are. I know what you mean about these ppl who would never change their minds on there no matter what happens. The kind government love and wish we all were like!

Thank you wa108; all I really know is I would be so in the dark without Fox News and I am a little bit mad at them for toning down some or so it seems to me. They need to keep people on fire for their freedoms and I hope nothing ever stops them or I don't know where we would be. I am ashamed of the democrats so bad, because I use to be one. I never dreamed they would sell their souls for a pack of lies and a free phone.

Amen. Thank god for FOX. There are some good newspapers and magazines that present balance but the television is completely liberal biased.

I attended one tea party just to see what it was like. Basically it was a mix of people from numerous different backgrounds African American, Latino, European ect., talking about how they wanted to keep America strong, by keeping its people free of stifling taxes. When I went home I watched the tea party I was attending on the news, (CNN) and it was footage of something else entirely. They were only showing white people and where they actually found these people they were interviewing I have no idea because it did not represent what I actually saw. I didn't recognize anyone and the whole attitude was nothing like the calm, intelligent atmosphere I experienced.

I then watched the FOX news footage of the tea party and saw familiar faces talking about the issues I saw people talking about when I was there.

CNN lies! I saw this fact with my own eyes. When the liberal news says that everything on FOX is wrong I know who to believe.

Politifact rates only 10% of the statements made on Fox News to be true: http://www.politifact.com/punditfact/tv/fox/. Other popular American news sources are marginally better. I hope you read a variety of news sources to gather the most factual information about current events, including foreign sources. If you are confident in what an American news outlet such as FOX says about what's happening overseas then logically, you should also give weight to what foreign outlets say about the United States.


Pollyannalana profile image

Pollyannalana 7 months ago from US Author

Well I know that statement to be so false that only 10% is true that I would not even bother to check them out since they are so apparently a part of the establishment that is trying to change or destroy what and who America is. I know Fox to love America as I do and what do I care what Iran and these other....countries... think of us. I know what they think, they want us dead and Obama will do all he can to help them and if you don't see that then you are one blind woman.

Fox did help open my eyes but now I can see all by myself.

    Polly is far from politically correct when it comes to justice. Truth means more to her than making fans saying what they want to hear!
