    The_Polaris saidRoger Ailes - the guy who runs Fox and controls every detail - was a paid consultant/propagandist for the Repub party during the Nixon presidency.
    He came up with the idea for Fox back then:
    http://gawker.com/5814150/roger-ailes-secret-nixon-era-blueprint-for-fox-news
    and he created Fox in the 1990's after getting financing from fellow right-winger Rupert Murdoch.

    There's NO debate.
    Fox is a propaganda outlet for the Repub party.
    And they lie their asses of on a regular basis.

    If you argue against that fact, then you're simply a brainwashed brain-dead Repub sheep - trying desperately to defend the propaganda channel and party you support.

    "Fair and balanced" is the biggest lie of them all


    I would hope that whoever runs any news organization would "control every detail." Perhaps if the mucky-mucks at CBS had done so while Dan Rather was employed there their reputation would be better than it is these days. At least the folks at MSNBC did when they tossed Olberman for one-too-many outlandish remarks. And, thanks to Ailes for creating FNC, thereby giving us some REAL diversity in newscasting, which the Big 3 and the CPB-NPR-PBS Axis do not. As for your cutting off the debate, sorry; we'll keep talking.

    Isugemi saidRight now, A fox news report is being reported in big french medias. It is surrealist and all the French are laughing.
    There's a so called "specialist" who claims that there are a few hundred "no-go zones" for non-Muslim people in France. He says that in those zones, the police has no right and that only muslim people can go. (There is a map of paris showing some of those no-go zones, and I go through some of them almost everyday, and many of my friends live in those). He calls those zones "banlieues" in French (when this word just means "suburbs"... Awesome for a "specialist").
    He also explains that 20% of the French support Isis (I'd like to know where he found that number).

    I saw that something similar happened a few days ago when an other Fox news 'specialist' said that Birmingham was not controlled by the UK government anymore, but was a little islamic state inside the country. All the British people laughed. Now it's French people who laugh.

    I think it was them, a few years ago, when there was students protests and some riots in Paris about a government project. They explained that France was in "civil war", and the whole Paris on fire (on their, map, they had somehow put Paris in Germany).

    When I see that American news show such bullshit, I understand better all the shit I read here about "Muslims invading Europe and imposing Chariah" and calls to deport all Muslims.

    Bingo! That's why the republicans have been the laughingstock of US politics for the last decade.

    The right wing of the US is simultaneously the most war mongering racist and Christian demographic. It's hard to believe that "a religion of peace" such as Christianity could be so vile, but there you have it.

    And they hate Obama most of all.


    Ah, our resident psychologist/shrink speaks again! And in such dulcet tones! Yes, the GOP was certainly laughing/smiling/high-fiving after last November's elections. Your bingo card's just your usual racist one.

    At least liberals in the US aren't the only ones who see that the Christian Fundamentalists have become bloodthirsty savages.

    If Fox presented itself as an opinion channel with a pro-Repub point of view - there wouldn't be any problem.
    The problem is that Fox lies and tries to pass itself off as a "fair and balanced" "news" channel when it's nothing of the kind and was never intended to be.
    It was always intended to be a fake news source that spins the news in a pro-Repub way.

    http://gawker.com/5814150/roger-ailes-secret-nixon-era-blueprint-for-fox-news

    The willingness of the right-wingers who work at Fox to lie about who they are and what they're doing is just more proof that they're deceptive about what they're doing - and that they will say anything to try to propagandize for the Repub party.
    Even if it means lying.

    This is all true, but what I find truly disturbing is that they're #1. It's scarily obvious that their propaganda is as popular as it is fraudulent. Republicans want all the racism, homophobia and anti immigration vitriol in their homes. It represents how they feel, and how they feel doesn't need to be based in reality. It's a cult.

    So, anyway, now that Fox has been lambasted, is there such a thing as "no go" zones? I find it incredibly bizarre that I can't get a yes or no answer on that.icon_confused.gif

    Fox may be the number one 24-7 "news" channel - but that's doesn't mean that they have a lot of viewers.
    Fox gets about 1-2 million viewers at most.
    The population of the country is about 320 million.
    So most Americans don't watch Fox.

    Fox just gets a lot of attention because they're loud and belligerent - and because the pathetic mainstream media is lazy passive and incompetent.

    Once and for all : No. Haha. This is complete nonsense and ridiculous.

    About the 751 "French no-go zones", he actually talked about what the government calls ZUS (Zones Urbaines Sensibles or Sensitive Urban Zones) ; those are zones that are priorities for urban and social policies in France, because they are, indeed, the places where the people are the poorest, and where unemployment is the highest. In some of those zones, there is maybe a higher percentage of Muslim people than in the rest of France (no study shows it as it's forbidden to study ethnical or religious groups here), but in many of those zones, there is actually no Muslims (many of those zones are in overseas departements where there has never been any Muslim communities)

    It may not be true to say the police cannot go in those zones, but it does seem you are soft-pedaling or minimizing the control the Muslims have there. This is just one of many sources easily found with google:

    DemocracyNOW! reported on this story tonight (13 January 2015). Steve Emerson, the "expert" who made the statements about "no go zones" has admitted this was in error and claimed to have been misinformed without having checked his facts. So he fails in at least one aspect of being defined as "expert". The PM of England was quoted as calling him an "idiot".

    DemocracyNOW! then examined the phenomenon of paid terrorism experts with a panel including journalist Glenn Greenwald. It's a very interesting take on the subject.

    Believe me. I am not misinformed. I go everyday in those "no go zones". All the people I know living there are NOT muslim. They are very nice and peaceful paris neighborhoods. I cannot even believe that some people wOuld think it's true! It's a bit as if European medias would depict southern california as a war zone because of the many mexican-americans living there. " san diego reminds me of bagdad". It's as big as that!! The misinformed ones are Americans who are taught to be affraid of Muslims.

    One thing that's very clear is Fox News is a joke of a news source. It's only means is to deliver hate their brain dead viewership.


    How so?


    They still won't admit they have a bias. If they're not even honest about what they are, it says a lot about what they do.

    Many people confuse the hard news programs with the commentary programs. The commentary programs are known to reflect the opinions of the hosts. Some such as O'Reilly often have liberals on the same segment with conservatives. Juan Williams, who appears often, is a liberal and also African-American. I have never seen a valid bias charge against the hard news programs or segments.


    The radio commentators are much smarter than the tv ones. I don't have a working tv and listen to the list below...

    Recently, when sitting in a friend's house and watching Fox news, I found it so boring that I listened to Michael savage on headphones.

    Yeah, savage isn't that nice to us but that's what was on the local station at the time, and it was way more entertaining than faux news.

    Liberals,
    Thom Hartmann
    Alan colmes
    Bob brinker
    And, what happened to gay talk host karel?
    What happened to Mike Malloy?

    Independents,
    Phil grande
    Michael savage
    Bill Wattenburg


    Conservatives,
    Larry kudlow
    Bill Cunningham
    Mark Levin

    For those who don't understand french, it's a satirical TV show. They make fun of The Fox news report about French "no-go zones". At the end, the reporters go to the "no-go zones" (with helmets haha) to interview the inhabitants. All of them say "we love our neighborhood, it's calm and cosmopolitan". When they ask "would you compare your neighborhood to Bagdad?" all of them laugh or look at them like "what the fuck are you talking about??". And for the record, The Arabs interviewed say "we love it here because we all live together : Arabs, Frenchs, Jews, Chinese..." or "we are in France here"

    Lol, Fox News does depict SoCal as a hotbed of gang violence and lawlessness. Hell, they think the police need to be militarized in Ohio.

    The US is largely segregated. It's enormous and has many densely populated cities, but they are all racially and economically divided. The most valuable real estate is in upper class predominantly white Christian neighborhoods, and the poorest real estate is in predominately black Christian neighborhoods, which are veritable no go zones for "white" people, according to the perceptions of the populace. Christianity isn't enough to unite them, because it's just a superstitious religion. Meanwhile, the equally preposterous Mormon religion basically runs it's own state. Muslims immigrating to the US who adhere to strict Islam are incompatible with those who adhere to strict Christianity. These two religious cults were designed with intolerance for non believers, as they command followers to be faithful to their superstitious laws and turn other faiths into their enemies.

    I think liberals who believe in freedom and individuality are misguided for supporting religious cults, because religious cults are inherently against freedom and against diversity. They need to be exposed as lies.

    The flaw of thinking that misguided mistakes support for freedom of thought and beliefs deriving there as fostering, festering or even forgiving what might arise from that. One is not the other.

    Warring ideas, this forever fighting for the freedom of thought, is the beauty of that gift left by our founding fathers, this constant vigilance engaging the citizenship which would otherwise descend into complacency and thoughtlessness and ultimately tyranny.

    I just call all superstitions and religions hogwash. If they can't handle the criticism, it's because their beliefs are based on flimflam that doesn't hold up to logic.

    I'm not at war with religion. I simply believe that people who subscribe to it are brainwashed, and they need to hear it, until it sinks in.

    We don't have people believing in Zeus anymore. These mythologies are hogwash and we might as well be Batman fearing zombies, because fiction is fiction.

    And credit where credit is due: at least Batman doesn't kill people! He doesn't even use guns. Amen!

    And credit where credit is due: at least Batman doesn't kill people! He doesn't even use guns. Amen!


    "and they need to hear it, until it sinks in."

    What you're doing though is turning RJ into the biggest bunch of (semi) religious conservatives anywhere in the homosexual world.

    HottJoe saidI think liberals who believe in freedom and individuality are misguided for supporting religious cults, because religious cults are inherently against freedom and against diversity.


    The flaw of thinking that misguided mistakes support for freedom of thought and beliefs deriving there as fostering, festering or even forgiving what might arise from that. One is not the other.

    Warring ideas, this forever fighting for the freedom of thought, is the beauty of that gift left by our founding fathers, this constant vigilance engaging the citizenship which would otherwise descend into complacency and thoughtlessness and ultimately tyranny.

    I just call all superstitions and religions hogwash. If they can't handle the criticism, it's because their beliefs are based on flimflam that doesn't hold up to logic.

    It sounds like you're saying people are retreating to their superstitions because they fear my blasphemy. That's weak and feeble. Up next, they'll turn their fear and guns on me, all because I told them that dragons aren't real.

    I didn't make them believe in monsters in the dark. I turned the lights on to show that there are no monsters.

    As gay men, we're told to give up kisses if we want to get heaven. Is heaven worth giving up on love? Of course not. That's not heaven. Without my love, it's just prison.

    It's things like this that I hate being American. What I think of America is like a fat (literally) kid who whines when he doesn't get his way.
