I'm just curious--why is it that whenever one expresses a conservative/libertarian/I-don't-want-the-government-to-continue-expanding opinion, the left immediately shouts that you've been "brainwashed by Fox"? I'm not brainwashed by anyone and rarely watch Fox. I also don't own a gun or listen to country music. I get so sick of the idiotic assumptions. Do those of you who do that realize how stale and disingenuous those insults are?
I don't have the answer for you. I think the majority of people that scream that have never even listened to 5 minutes of FOX news and are just regurgitating what they have heard from like minded liberal media personalities. Honestly, in the past I have gotten my news from a variety of sources and got tired of trying to decipher if what they were presenting were really the facts. It became too much work to be skeptical of every work that came out of MSM (mainstream media). I trust FOX and don't feel I have to do that. Now, they are my main news source. YES.. they are fair and balance. That is why I choose them.

Sadly, many apparently can not debate without ending their POV with that "below the belt" blow. It's too bad because, IMO a decent, well-informed point can stand all on its own without a moron, ignorant, right or left jab attached.
It IS very unfortunate that SOME people on here bring out the worst in others. I for one don't like being called a "LIAR" repeatedly, over the most superficial reasons, and so I will make my displeasure known!! In real life I would do the same, so I do not see how the internet is any different!
Do I like to "hit below the belt?" NO! It goes against my otherwise "happy-go-lucky" real life persona, but I have always felt the need to defend myself and my character, and when PERSONAL ATTACKS are lobbed at me, you can bet that I will spike a few back! Why is it acceptable for SOME to attack REPEATEDLY, yet it's "below the belt" for the recipient to "fight back?!"

Because Fox News is usually right on the issues, show both sides and have representatives from both parties to debate the issue, and correct their mistakes. They poke fun but don't call names or make inappropriate comments like Chris Matthews, Keith O, or Ed Schultz does. When they do, they make apologies. This type of news analyst and commentary is unfamiliar to the dem who will resort to name calling and insults when found to be loosing a debate or realizes the topic isn't be well defended by them. So, blame Fox. It is one of the mantras they use.
