If you haven't heard this, the White House is accusing Fox News of not
being a legitimate source of news, calling them biased, etc. They
have tried to block Fox reporters from news conferences, etc., but the
other news networks are fighting back (in favor of Fox) and caused the
White House to back down. NPR has put a survey online for us to voice
our opinion. If you want to vote in this survey, go to the link below
and cast your vote. Currently it is 71% in favor of the White House,
but there are not that many votes ......... less than 2,000 all
together. Let's show them how we feel about honest conservative news
reporting.

Was posted on GD a couple of days ago, but worth hitting again, and again. It started with a landslide in favor of Fox, but has shifted over time. I suspect DU has their own firemission. or NPR is playing with the numbers.

After all, it is NPR.

––––––––––––––––––––––––––
The White House on this one; Fox News isn't "fair and balanced." 22% (176,537 votes)

Fox News on this one; it asks questions others don't and the White House should be able to handle them. 77% (624,367 votes)

Neither side. They're both trying to play this "feud" to their advantage. 2% (13,160 votes)

total votes 814,064

THE COW AND THE ICE CREAM...



ONE OF THE BEST EXPLANATIONS OF WHY OBAMA WON THE ELECTION


From a teacher in the Nashville area

"We are worried about "the cow" when it is all about the "Ice Cream"

The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year.

The presidential election was heating up and some of the children

showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president.

We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech

and the class would vote.

To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members.

We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students

should have. We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and

Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.

The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates

were good kids. I thought Jamie might have an advantage because

he got lots of parental support. I had never met Olivia's mother.

The day arrived when they were to make their speeches.

Jamie went first. He had specific ideas about how to make our class

a better place. He ended by promising to do his very best. Everyone applauded and he sat down.

Now it was Olivia's turn to speak.

Her speech was concise. She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give

you ice cream." She sat down. The class went wild. "Yes! Yes! We want

ice cream."

She surely would say more. She did not have to. A discussion followed.

How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn't sure.

Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it. She didn't know.

The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream.

Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide.

Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and

52 percent of the people reacted like nine year olds. They want ice cream.

The other 48 percent know they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess."


Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone ––-

that they have not first taken away from someone else....

Ok... I gotta really disagree with this.... FOX is defiantly not "fair and balanced" but then again I cannot think of a single news organization that is. don't delude yourself. the time of fair and unbiased reporting hasn't been around for 30-50 years. BUT.... fair or not, the white house has no right to block any legitimate news organization. Fox does go out of the way to report on what the others don't but don't be naive in thinking that they don't have an agenda.

I look at all the news and then try to find something resembling facts on my own. I then make my own decisions. 9/10 times the truth lies somewhere in between.

Beleive what you like,Fox is the MOST fair and balanced TV news available in this country at this time,as the Wall Street Journal is the most honest print news . they are under fire from the Obama administration for a reason. they are exposeing the truth the Obama administration does not want us to hear. hopefully our pain and misery will end in 2012. and the beauty of the Obama adninistration going after Fox is the rateings Fox gets from it . Fox is more popular then ever .
