... Qatar ... PLEASE buy out FOX news!!!!

Your words prove my Granny's view that,

"There are none so blind as those who do not wish to see."

By the way, I have not watched Fox TV or any of those other ultra liberal propaganda machines Blue is so concerned with,  in two years or longer.

It is so funny that our beeks don’t see the OBVIOUS propaganda machine that IS Fox News, but you fear that Qatar will turn some channel that nobody even watches into a propaganda machine.

Hello, you’re all watching propaganda 24-7 as it is!

And I’m the one having trouble seeing……   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I've been watching AJ for a few years, it has some decent content. The problem with all news reporting is with television the axiom 'seeing is believing' is sadly all too often true. A little bit of fact checking from viewers would vastly improve the quality of all news reporting.

a little what????  :evil:
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

When I really want the truth I go to NBC or MSNBC cause NBC's main man works in the White House and he should know the truth. Right??. And BTW they don't have to pay taxes.

you must watch a lot of fox news to know so much about it.  surely you would not form an opinion based on what others have told you?  it's ok to not like something.  we can't all like the same things, can we?
