I agree with the statement in the video that some people tune into to Fox just to see what crazy old Fox is doing. There were several of us down at a local watering hole the other day commenting first on how attractive the staff is on fox and second on what a bunch of lying D-Bags they are. I was actually surprised that just about everybody agreed with my scathing critique. A few years ago, it would have started an argument.

Most people are cowards and do not like confrontation.

Well give me Megyn Kelly any day over Rachel Maddow. It's not even close in my opinion.


I'll take Barbara Bermudo over Megyn Kelly any day. After that white Santa thing, I watched some clips of Kelly's show and can't believe someone like that seriously has her own news show.

Well, it's not really a news show - it's more of a news-type show with lots of commentary.

Have you ever watched Rachel Maddow? or possibly Melissa Harris-Perry?

I've caught some of both of them, I don't really like those type of news shows, like you said news type with commentary. When I want asinine opinions, I'll just give them myself.

Actually I'd rather just read the news reports myself and figure out what it all means myself.

I dont really understand why people care who reads the news and comments on it. If you dont like it, dont watch. Not sure why someone has to complain about it on the internet all the time. Better to spend time pointing out REAL bias, like when the media fails to report something or intentionally reports something they know isnt true (as opposed to opining).

These threads whining about opinions offered by the media are a waste of time.

Fox is propaganda, but the right can't see it. MSNBC is propaganda too.

Use your freaking brains and stop watching this garbage.

Yeah, me too! But, I would rather watch Rachel Maddow than that bitch - Megyn Kelly any day! Sexual attraction is not all about physical response; if she's someone who I consider horrible, forget it! Or, maybe it's just that I find evil to be a real boner killer!

I recall that when Megyn Kelly was in the middle of her rants about the "takers" of society, the clownboys at Fox&Friends made the mistake of adding maternity leave to the list, and she went all medieval on them. That is the hallmark of a self-centered, selfish asshole....they want to cut everything they don't use, but it's a different story when it's benefits that they take advantage of!

The only thing I got against Rachel is that she is so in the tank as an Obama Democrat, that she can't be relied on anymore for unbiased coverage of the news. She certainly does her homework and is a much nicer person by a long shot than Kellygirl!

I actually gave Megyn a little credit on that for calling that BS for what it was. However, when I have to give brownie points to Fox News hosts for every (rare) time they buck the party line, that's a sad state of affairs.

Shep Smith is the only person on Fox News I have a modicum of respect for, and even that is tempered by the fact that he continues to work for them.

It's pretty sad that certain people will accept anything, uncritically, if it comes out of the mouth of a pretty lady.

I find it all entertaining. What is garbage in my view is the hard news.
