Tom Coburn wants his constituents to get a more fair and balanced view of politics — even if that means hating a bit on FOX and loving a little on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“What we have to have is make sure we have a debate in this country so that you can see what’s going on and make a determination yourself,” the Oklahoma senator said in remarks to a home-state town hall meeting March 31 that were first reported by Capitol News Connection. “So don’t catch yourself being biased by FOX News that somebody is no good. The people in Washington are good. They just don’t know what they don’t know.”
In particular, Coburn took FOX to task for perpetuating the notion that Americans will be imprisoned for failing to purchase health insurance under the new law.

The thing that these politicians don't like about Fox News is that they tell the rest of the story kind of like Paul Harvey. They tell the part the politicians don't want us to know or consider. I appreciate Fox for telling it all and letting me decide what I can put up with and what I can't. I can't make that type of informed decision if I don't know everything. ABC, NBC, and CBS actually do have biased reporting, but these people really like that because the bias is in their direction so the reporting is favorable. Fox always has people on from both sides of the argument. The discussion will go where it goes, and I form my opinion. They don't hide their opinion, but I don't base mine on theirs. It's just like Beck tonight. He didn't say people said; he played their words and let the chips fall where they may. Just present the facts. I will do the rest.

That's what I like about FOX is they give you both sides. All the others give you the good side of dems & the bad side of Rep. Fox gives you the good and bad of both parties. The dems don't like a station that gives you both sides. They only want to here the Rosie dem side where they get a tingle up their leg.
