    Good for him! A few more people need to let Billiar O'Reilly know that his idiotic freak show is a joke.

    I enjoy Obama's Fox News put-downs at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

    That's SF in spades and one more reason not to live there: ignore reality and deny those w/ whom they disagree their otherwise sacred right to "question authority." None of this can cloud the fact that a horrible crime was committed there by an illegal alien, the second such crime in about a decade there, and FNC is the ONLY network investigating and reporting what they're finding, the reticence of SF's smug "officials" notwithstanding. Let's see some FOIA requests to the SF Board of Stupes, Sheriff's and DA's offices, Fox! Go get 'em!

    I just re-watched Good Night, and Good Luck - a reminder of what we have lost, even with the "good" programs. Powerful film.

    This article is nothing but jerk off material for ditzy liberals who aren't looking at the facts as they're piling up. It's just something to make you think you've got something to be happy about and draw your attention away from the real shit that's going on about the larger issue.

    I doubt you took in the House hearing DHS chief Jeh Johnson was in yesterday. He was there about the issue of sanctuary cities harboring criminals and he'd never heard of Kate Steinle.

    Jeh Johnson at the hearing“Has the administration reached out to the Steinle family, to your knowledge?” Ohio U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot asked.

    “To who?” a perplexed Johnson asked.


    http://dailycaller.com/2015/07/14/homeland-security-chief-mispronounces-kate-steinles-name-doesnt-seem-to-know-who-she-is-video/#ixzz3fykBLYNu

    But he did sit there and show he knows nothing about how the federal government can assert its authority over states and even cities...
    DHS chief Jeh Johnson said“I do not believe that we should mandate the conduct of state and local law enforcement through federal legislation,”

    .....or Jeh Johnson is just another lying ass kissing bureaucrat.... In any case if you want to talk about federal mandates to assert authority over states and cities.... Start in 1957 with DD Eisenhower sending 1,000 US Army Airborne and 1,000 National Guard to Little Rock Arkansas to enforce integration of schools.... all the way up to the current day... with many examples of Washington withholds funding until states or cities are in compliance. Examples below.

    http://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-care/states-losing-billions-refusing-expand-medicaid-report-finds-f2D11697962
    http://vtdigger.org/2015/03/30/state-cuts-could-cause-libraries-to-lose-federal-funding/

    Just this morning in this forum I've read comments by four hard core liberals who are supporting Donald Trump on this issue and more. Even liberals in San Francisco are speaking out about the very issues that led to Kate Steinle's death.. She's not the first to die at the hands of people who have been repeatedly deported from the US. There's enough momentum now to pass laws to penalize sanctuary cities to compel them comply. There are cases in the past in which mayors, city councils, police chiefs, and district attorneys have all been held responsible in criminal and civil courts.

    But don't let any of that stop you from having fun jerking each other off with this lame ass article.

    Yes, I saw that, too, bobbo, and was incredulous that a person in his position could be so dumb. Then, I realized who put him there. What's it been - about a week now? - and still not a peep from Obama.

    Fox News is one of the reasons republicans are now virtually unelectable in a national election. We used to have moderate democrats who would cross party lines, depending on the candidate, but Fox has drawn a line in the sand with all their anti gay, non pluralistic, racist, sexist, anti immigrant propaganda, making the GOP a national embarrassment long before Trump came along. People who think otherwise are irrelevant.

    So much for those who voted in those GOP majorities last November then, huh? Your mischaracterization of FNC is waaaay off; when was the last time you even watched it?icon_rolleyes.gif

    I said republicans can't win in a national election, i.e. a presidential election. They can win house and senate seats, but those are relatively weak positions.

    I used to watch Fox for some laughs, but my husband can't stand it, so I don't watch it when he's around, out of consideration for him.

    "The fault, dear Brutus, is in ourselves," as Edward R Murrow remarked (see Good Night, and Good Luck). If Americans don't want to hear real points genuinely debated; don't want to hear real, or bad news; continue to elect idiots; and watch "entertainment news" - this is what we get. TV, as a public resource, is virtually dead, and we let it happen.

    Sometimes I disagree with your posts, but remain silent cause I usually don't even give a fuck (which means the disagreement is over something mundane and unimportant for most people).

    But this one I more than agree with, I strongly agree with.

    Fox "news" (if you can call it that) is nothing more than a haven for those few people left in this country who still think their "almighty gawd" is gonna save them somehow, while wiping out all the sinners in the world. Little do they realize that they're the worst sinners of all, if sin actually exists (that's for a whole different debate).

    I applaud the SF guy. It's nice to see the city I chose to work in for the summer is even more progressive than many of the people I work with back home. icon_biggrin.gif

    So a far left San Francisco extremist doesn't like Fox News but likes his city harboring felons. Wow, that's surprising.

    It's easy to take her death out of context. Not to trivialize what happened to Steinle , but trying to draw a parallel between her case and any of the recent black murder cases (where the White House responded )just doesnt work.

    One case was an isolated incident.
    In the other cases, people were the victims of systemic, REPEATED and documented deaths at the hands of law enforcement ......thats why these incidents received more attention from the White House than hers.

    Fox is trying to compare an apple to an entire crate of oranges. It's not that hard.

    Here's 200 stories just like Kate Steinle's.... illegal immigrants, most who have been deported at least once and returned... most around sanctuary cities...

    I will not be one bit surprised if San Francisco joins the ranks of Baltimore and Chicago by becoming one of the nation's deadliest cities thanks to these ultra leftist policies. Oakland could end up becoming a safer and more pleasant and more affordable city in the long run that is providing that Oakland city officials don't fuck up by enacting the exact same ultra leftist policies.

    DID, you forget that this was the second such incident in SF involving murder by an illegal alien in the last decade or so. As bobbo notes, incidents like this one are hardly "isolated;" here in SD they occur weekly, if not more often. And, tossing around cliches like "systemic" doesn't hold much water outside of a freshman seminar on "race." There are many kinds of systems, and the one in the black underclass that encourages a life of crime and provocation of and resistance to the police is just as bad as that in SF which actively conceals illegal aliens from the law and aids and abets their continued wrongdoing. And, why does Obama remain silent on this, while his deputy Johnson remains ignorant of it? No, the excuses won't work: a productive life was cut short, while a criminal career continues.

    Charleston shooting suspect Dylann Roof was captured through the report to the police by a woman who had been watching Fox News reports of the criminals picture.

    The North Carolina florist (Debbie Dills) who tailed Charleston shooting suspect Dylann Roof’s car, and led police to the accused killer, told Fox & Friends that she credits Fox News for helping her be able to recognize the 21-year-old.

    http://www.mediaite.com/tv/debbie-dills-credits-fox-news-for-how-she-was-able-to-identify-dylann-roof/

    Liberals: I guess Roof is yet another criminal that you want running free like the illegal alien who recently murdered Kate Steinle in San Francisco.

    Criminals were also being caught by the US entertainment program "America's Most Wanted". It wasn't a news program, either. So your example is meaningless, as a way of demonstrating what qualifies as a news show.

    Second, Fox itself, when confronted over it's journalism failures, hides behind the excuse that they're really not a news reporting channel at all, but a "news opinion and commentary" channel. Well, they sure are that! They wanna have it both ways: a valid news organization when they're pitching Republican Party and Tea Party propaganda, but taking cover behind being simply a commentary program when they get caught at it.

    Too bad they deceive most of their listeners into believing otherwise, that they're a legitimate news gathering & reporting organization. The White House was having none of it, when, in January of this year I believe it was, they refused to continue identifying them as other than just "Fox" rather than "Fox News". I'm just disappointed they still allow ANY representatives from "Fox" to attend White House briefings & events.

    The words of a true idiot who lied about his military rank.

    The fact is Fox, like other networks, has hard news segments and opinion and commentary segments. Most people with an IQ above 70 know how to separate the two, but the idiot I quoted fails at this simple exercise.
