    Get a load of this douche bag. At 1:35, he starts to whine about beign "heckled" by the crowd.

    Mike TobinAnd you can still hear the passion in the crowd. The heckling is starting up again. The hate that you get from these demonstrators -- you can see it in their faces. You can see the passion, that they all come back to the same thing every time. I was getting the business from a teacher yesterday -- there he goes; he wants to shut down the communication -- a teacher was giving me the business yesterday, and the teacher told me she hates me because it makes her feel good. That's the situation out here


    As you'll see in the video, a few protesters put their hands and signs in front of the camera but only for a second. And for this paid propagandist to claim that the crowd yelling "Fox News Lies" is trying to "shut down communication" is just ridiculous.

    Actually, it's the reporter who was advocating "shutting down communication".
    He clearly wanted the protesters to shut up.

    And, I don't remember any Fox spinners hatemongering against the screaming demonstraters at any of the Tea Party rallies.
    Did they EVER describe the hateful actions words and signs at the Tea Party rallies as "hate"?

    This reporter disgraced himself with his unprofessional behavior.
    The right-wing spin that Fox is "fair and balanced" most of the day, and that it's only evening shows like Hannity and Glenn Beck that push a pro-right-wing viewpoint - is a bold-faced LIE, and this vid is more proof of that.

    No more so than the hyper-liberal biased MSNBC does with it's leftward spin against the Tea Party, and never covering the purple-shirted SEIU thugs intimidating folks.

    The US news media are horribly biased to the viewpoints of their audiences because controversy begets ratings, and ratings beget sales.

    FYI - the difference is that unlike MSNBC - Fox claims to be "fair and balanced".
    Which is a blatant LIE.
    As you just admitted in your post above.

    OMG! That was so exaggerated. The man put his hand up to the lens after the lens was pointed at him. The people were chanting as protestors do. Tobin was so trying to make something out of nothing, That was really sad.

    Although MSNBC leans left, it does not consistently air extreme views like FOX. The only exception being Shepard Smith.

    i've often wondered if fox new's slogan (fair and balanced) was an ironic, inside joke among the conservative right wingers.

    They've sure as hell been laughing their asses off at anybody who buys their BS that they're "fair and balanced".

    How about Greta Van Sustern? Don't forget there are consistently liberal guests on O'Reilly and Hannity. Not just stooges, but generally prominent people.

    I'll be honest and say I'm not that familiar with Greta. I know who she is and have come across her segments through YouTube.

    I should have been clear. I wasn't referring to guests, I meant the talking heads for the network.

    To those of you who hate Fox - Have you realized that it doesn't make a damn bit of difference what you think? It really doesn't.

    What's childish is all your carrying on and ranting about something that makes no difference at all.

    We don't "hate Fox".
    We hate what Fox DOES.
    The lying and the spinning and the hatemongering and the fearmongering.
    THAT"S what we hate.

    And, unfortunately for you Repubs - the American people know now that Fox is NOT "fair and balanced".
    Fox has been permanently outed as a right-wing propaganda machine.

    Is it just me, or does anyone else wonder what was ultimately edited from the interaction between this protester and the snide puke that was behind the camera?

    I have my suspicions that Scott Walker and/or Wisconsin's Republican party has encouraged the young neo-cons to go out and instigate these altercations with the protesters.

    I wonder if the man in this video could sue for having the video posted without his permission. Hmmm...maybe a new way to get back at these schmucks???

    First of all, if it matters, and it probably doesn't, your opinion on Fox means absolutely nothing to me and I think many of us who don't share your politics. That said, if it's in any way therapeutic for you guys to have common enemies, and share with each other your views of these enemies, and you get some benefit high-fiving each other, have at it.

    Clearly, you and your fellow Repubs care more about the Republican party than the FACTS and the TRUTH.
    If you didn't - you wouldn't watch the Fox propaganda channel.

    ...being a right-wing homophobe, who is here to disrupt a gay health & fitness site with my vile political propaganda, which has no place here in the first place. I hate gays, have never said anything positive here about gays, I only spew vitriol & hatred about them. Oh, but I'm gay, too, even if I hate the rest of you who don't also hate gays like I do.

    Quoted for Admin action.

    What you say is total bullshit, completely unsupportable. Wouldn't even waste time asking you to back up, because you can't. If you were actually in the military and eligible for benefits, hopefully the VA is taking care of you.

    That's sad but true about socal and some others.
    The self-loathing of some of the RJ Repubs really is a shame.
    I feel sorry for them.
    It must be hard to live with such internal conflict and intense dislike of oneself.
    Hopefully, younger gays are growing up without their heads being filled with so much BS about how being gay is evil or being gay means you're weak or unmanly.
    It's BS, and I think much of the younger generation of gay men is growing up knowing that.
