Subject: Misogyny on FOX News??? So what else is new
I don't watch FOX News - if I want to kill my brain there are many more pleasurable ways to go about it.

But sometimes the stench emanating from that channel's news parody is so overwhelming that silent head shaking is no longer an option.

You can dress stupidity and hatred up in fancy suits and call them newscasters, but they're really still just stupidity and hatred.

A real news program would have fired those people long before they had the chance to make such comments on air. But then again it is FOX News I'm referring to, hardly a real news program unless you like you news program light on the news and heavy on the programming.

Agreed.

Of course, "stupidity and hatred up in fancy suits" applies to MSNBC as much as it does FOX (as well any other 'news' outlet you care to name).

at least the woman reporter was playing the story straight until her male co-hosts just went all stupid.

This makes not being able to pick up a Fox channel, a good thing.

Watchin' FOX (or MSNBC or any of 'em) is like watchin' soap operas.

Everything is inflated, five minutes worth of information is turned into a week or more of 'coverage', time is skewed.

I understand the cause: 24/7 new cycles, air to fill, money to make.

Too bad for the folks who take any of it seriously.

Too bad for the folks who have to live with the folks who take any of it seriously.
