    I have, once or twice, paused on Fox Spews for a few seconds. Even the ads were incredible BS.

    PS: I have also tried to listen to a “liberal” radio show. I WANTED to like it, but the truth is that it was shrill and uninformative.

    Is Stephan writing about CNN or MSNBC? With the arrival of John Malone at CNN and the departure of Chris Cuomo, there’s hope that the nutters will be balanced by moderates. Is there any hope for MSNBC? Probably not.

    (Sigh…) It always happens- every time this kind of discussion comes up, there are the detractors who keep on thinking it is FOX that is the freak show. Let’s review:

    CNN, ABC, MSNBC, WP, other left-leaning media:

    1) Russian collusion in 2016- got it wrong

    2) Steele dossier- got it wrong

    3) Hunter Biden laptop- got it wrong

    4) Nick Sandmann- got it dead wrong

    5) Jussie Smollett- got it wrong

    6) Kyle Rittenhouse- got it wrong, NO racism involved

    7) Darrell E. Brooks and Waukesha- silent on Brook’s racism

    I could go on…

    As opposed to FOX news reporting the truth. And have the leftist media ever apologised? No. Have they ever taken responsibility for misleading the public? Hardly! Don’t hold your breath.

    I grew up on Chet Huntley and David Brinkley, and Walter Cronkite. How far we are from the news reporter that doesn’t editorialize.

    You don’t have to be a terrible liar to work at FAUX, but it sure helps. (4-way entendre.)

    How do #neoBolsheviks feel about peaceful democracy in a republic?

    The #fake_GOP is against it.

    A failed practice insurrection “led” by cowards and losers is still an #insurrection.

    I can’t watch the news anymore. I prefer to read the news! What I read on the news sites is the same old news at 6 and 11. Sensationalism has gripped this country! Scare tactics, warnings, alerts, breaking news! They can shove it!

    It is too bad that one can only get a variety of opinions by watching different news feeds. There was a time when you could get news rather than opinions, but that is gone.

    I sometimes watch local news if I know something big, like a fire, is happening. Otherwise I prefer to read my morning Chronicle. I can read the articles that interest me and ignore the rest.

    One of the best cartoons ever was Arlo & Janice where the teenage son was watching TV. The father came up behind, watched for a while, then asked “Which one is Beavis and which one is Butthead?” “This is ‘Crossfire.’”
