More Evidence, Fox-Watching Still Hazardous

Reported by Nancy - April 15, 2005 -

The last time I posted a selection of the letters we get that are addressed to Fox, some of our readers misunderstood my point. So, as St Ronnie would say, let me be perfectly clear: It's not about the sentiments or opinions expressed by the writers. It's about the fact that they can't tell our website from Fox's -- despite, for example, our logo & banner proclaiming "We watch Fox so you don't have to" at the top of every page. Here's a new batch of evidence, again with the names deleted to protect the ignorant.

This time I've saved the best for last -- someone mistook us for the White House!

I watch Fox daily but when this subject was talked about it turned me off. When Mancow talked you can't starve your dog as a comparison to the Schiavo case, he did not comment you can put your dog down when quality of life is gone.

Subject: Terry Schiavo follow up from last night
After watching Hannity last night and Terry Schiavo's family I have a few queries. If, in fact, Dr. Hammerstein (?) believes Terry can be rehabilitated, then why has he not been working on this with her? Hannity never asked this last night. I kept waiting and waiting. Dr. Hammerstein could show the world wide medical community the results. It could change science going forward for gosh sakes. If he could show Michael Schiavo measurable progress, then this would all end today. He would receive grants, fame and fortune in the science/medical community as well and an awful lot of funding. Why has he not been able to show or work with her? She has been in this state roughly 15 years and in the media spotlight for a few years now. He has never stepped forward until now?? So, he is okay with allowing someone that he knows can be helped and that can help science but has done nothing? Also, if the family truly believes 'she' is in there, then ask her what she wants. Clearly, numerous tests could be set up. One, blink once if you want us to let you go--blink 2-3-4 times if you want to live. Close your eyes if you want us to let you go. Of course, numerous other tests, in addition could be used to validate the first test. Test two--squeeze my hand--look at mother--brother--whatever. It can be determined if in fact she can follow commands and understand language. Why is this not being done and why has it not been addressed. If they really believe she is in there, they would not hesitate to attempt these types of markers just to get a stay and pause on the whole ordeal. If she is not aware and cannot follow these directions, then the answer is clear. Thank you

This is for Linda Vester please would ou say something about hear say being used in the court of Law. I always thought that hear say was not substantial evidence. and also why is Michael not allowing her parents the right to give her a descent burial? I say he is guilty of something and by him creamating her there would be no autopsy done to prove negligence. Don't people realize that this is Easter Week and there is a reason God intervened on Palm Sunday for Congress to have come together for terry's sake. When hear say becomes useful in court all americans are in trouble.

THANK YOU, FOX NEWS We need to return to GOD. This country are going down the tube because our country is no longer practicing under GOD'S Law. We have a tube fed daughter she is precious and no different than Terri. If this judge and his horrid discussion can make a judgment to end Terri's life he could come in and tell us we have to remove *****'s feeding tube. PLEASE pray pray friend of Fox news thank you, *****

Subject: tell your blonde to report the real news
come on FOX! i wanted to urp when your blonde newslady was interviewing teri's brother. how can you all allow such speculation about teri being abused. don't you think teri was examined closely when she was taken to the hospital when she collapsed? had the doctor's even thought she might have been a battered woman i assure you the police would have been called. lets get real, okay? how come teri';s family is just now bringing this up? after all, she collapsed in 1991! quit speculating!!! as for teri's brother he better be worring about a slander suit filed against him. i've got some questions for you all. how many of you know people who have lost a spouse? i have some friends who did and later remarried yet still had love for the spouse who died. mr. schiavo's situation is much the same except his wife isn't physically dead. so he meets another woman and she becomes pregnant but i suppose everyone would have been happier if mr. schiavo's girlfriend had opted for an abortion. what hypacrites you all are. since we are all speculating why not throw out some speculation for both sides instead of crucifying michael. perhaps out of his love for his wife he is indead honoring her wishes. my husband and i have often told each other never to allow artificial means to keep the other alive. i can never remember talking to my friend or parents about it. there are many things i discuss with my husband that i don't with others. if my husband were to ever get in the same situation that teri is in i would run around the world to insure his wishes were carried out even if his parents wanted to care for him and he wanted to die. wake up people! what you have here are 2 fueding families who have suckered an entire nation into their fight, even a president who went against the constitution to help them. thousands of families in this country are in similar situations and you news media expounding on one family and fueling their fued. why don't you all insist that something be done about these child molesters that are running rampant. why doesn't congress get a bill signed by the president to have electronic tracking devices imbedded under the skin of these monsters so they can be tracked? oops, sorry, after all, monsters have rights. thanks for listening. *****-fed-up in idaho

Dear Mr. O'rielly I would like to set the record streight as what has been comming out is wrong. As a second class signalman on ship I know that you have to follows orders from above or your out there is no two ways about It you have a very good program and i enjoy it very much, but sometime i agree and sometimes not but that is the way the world works as far as Pres Bush goes I am proud i voted for him he is a good man under a lot of pressure. this is a time for the sentent and congress to get it togeher and do some thing at least give it a try if it dont work try someting else. the only thing they agree on is a raise in pay which they dont deserve. Thank You God Bless
