F.O.X. - Focused On Xionists

Reported by Chrish - August 3, 2006 -

Is anyone else ready to scream if they don't cover some news from this country or maybe Iraq, where our soldiers are? The Big Story doesn't care about us or them. Today 8/03/06 was another Israel/Lebanon festival of fighting.

We haven't seen this extreme of excessive coverage since Natalee Holloway went missing - not to diminish her family's loss or anguish, or to compare the two stories, just the extremes of coverage.

From a media monitoring viewpoint it is clear that the people in charge of programming at FOX either don't want viewers to be informed about other subjects, or they want viewers to adopt a certain stance on the subject being covered. Or both. Since the coverage on FOX has been SO skewed to favor Israel and so frequently offers the Israeli viewpoint and not the Lebanese, followers are at this point being drilled, drilled, drilled. Do we really need the daily play by play, all day?

What don't they want you to be following? The chaotic situation in Iraq. The deadly weather extremes that indicate the reality of global warming. The price of gas - up, up and away. Diebold. Growing unease with US election mechanisms. Crumbling American infrastructure - brownouts and failures across the country. New Orleans. The ABA acting against signing statements. The list goes on.

I don't even need to watch FOX so you don't have to - I already know what they're going to say. At this level the specifics don't even matter; suffice to say it was more, more, more of the same, same, same.
