    Or they could just keep it out of the news just like Dr. Paul, or Occupy the FED, or oathkeepers 11-11-11, or the NDAA legislation.

  • Mary

    The government and media are corrupt.

  • Tinman

    Wouldn’t it be great if Govt. Officials and Media Editors were held accountable for what they claim as truth or fact. No this can not be self policing…duh…They are ALL liers to their benefit…
    I’m fedup with them all….

    • http://deleted Claire

      Tinman— I agree with you.

  • Cawmun Cents

    This stinks.
    Not because the people who reported this are leftist radicals.
    Not because they make claims which are blatantly false in their premises.
    Not because these people have no backbones,or they would report the news as it should be reported,whoever they are.
    Not because they catch people making mmistakes and think they are clever by posting to the idiots of the world,just exactly what they think.
    Not even because they intend to bring you a modicum of truth.

    But because they dont report that the major news outlets are havens for marxist rabble.
    The whole reason for expounding journalism is to report the real events of the world to folks too busy to see them on a daily basis.
    God forbid that you should see things differently than the leftist.
    Then you must be made to be seen as incompetent.
    In the world of the”free”press,left makes might.
    All others must be made to be seen as propagandists.
    Hilarious.
    If they told the truth(an actual impossibility)they would say things which raise doubts about their own ability to do so.
    The Scribes are at it again.
    They lie by omission instead of comission,but it is a lie nevertheless.
    Leaving out part of the truth is as much of a lie as baldfaced lying.
    It is the feminine guise rather than the masculine one.
    But we are taught that it is okay to put on another face and get up in front of the world to report nothing.
    Leaving things out to confuse the folks who observe is as much trickery and deceit as out and out lying.
    Until we learn that fact as human beings we will never get the truth from journalists.
    Dont expect it to happen soon anyway.

    I have to say one thing about FOX News – they’re consistent

    • Vigilant

      Yes, they are more consistently fair and balanced than any other network, you can bank on it.

      Or do you trust the RT network shown above? RT is an abbreviation for “Russia Today,” the original name of the outlet.

      • JoeH.

        vigilant,
        Good catch bud. i have seen other reports of riots in Russia not on fox! all you have to do is google race riots in russia? and you will see it in about ten different sites and in the UK as well!!

        • Bigolfascist

          Ms. Golinger is a staunch supporter of Hugo Chavez, and extremely anti-American, so what she says comes as no surprise. It’s also a shame that the Russian Federation has not really changed its spots from the old USSR that much. IN the early days of the fall, there were signs of hope, esp. a free press, but that has been suppressed. Sort of like here. Here’s a bit more on Golinger.

        Vigilent – you are a brianwashe fool. Just because it comes from Russia, it can’t be true? Is that your level of depth of reasoning? Thanks, to people like you we have the government propaganda machine we have. Everybody with a brain knows that if you want the real truth you need the foreign press as well, because places like Al Jazeera are the only places where you might actually get some truth about what is really going on in the middle east.

          Mark in LA -

          You have a great career awaiting you in standup comedy! Wonderfully satirical post! (Or is it that you have been unduly influenced by the Red air of California‽ I had the good sense to move to a State which hat at least a little more respect for the Constitution of the United States of America and its Amendments.)

            Did you HAVE to post in VietNamese AND latin??

        • Vigilant

          Mark in LA LA Land sez, “Just because it comes from Russia, it can’t be true? Is that your level of depth of reasoning?”

          No, my line of reasoning comes from the expose of the falsehoods promulgated by that media outlet. If you’ve mastered basic English reading skills, go to http://www.mediaite.com/tv/no-fox-news-did-not-lie-with-wisconsin-palm-tree-violent-protest-video/ and you will discover where my line of reasoning comes from.

          LOL! Speaking of brainwashed fools…..

  • s c

    Wouldn’t it be GREAT to see a major hobag TV network or a major PROSTY newspaper make a 180 degree turn, and tell Americans what they NEED to know? Traitors at the government, robotic utopians in universities and in Washington and in “all 57 states” would go beserk.
    It would be SO GREAT, but I realize it’s not likely to happen. Once you’ve crossed the line into career criminality and treason, you can’t ‘go back.’

  • jopa

    This reminds me of FOX showing the protesters in Madison Wisconsin and there were Palm trees in the background.Murdoch of Fox himself has proclaimed Fox is not really news source but more for entertainment.The gaffe on CNN was followed up with an apology when they realized there was a problem problem.That would never happen at Fox and their viewers will continually be left in the dark and clueless.

    • Vigilant

      jopa, disabuse yourself of this propaganda against Fox News by going to http://www.mediaite.com/tv/no-fox-news-did-not-lie-with-wisconsin-palm-tree-violent-protest-video/

      Moreover, stop lying about what Murdoch said. Fox News programs that report the news are just that, NEWS, and it’s the most objective news on the airwaves. The clip to which you refer was on The O’Reilly Factor, and even Bill O’Reilly has never called his segment a news show. It’s opinion and, yes, entertainment.

      Quit testing the depth of the water with both feet, you’re in over your head. Oh, and write back to the Josef Goebbals Academy of Objective Journalism and tell them they gypped you.

      • Vigilant

        Incidentally, “continually left in the dark and clueless” is a more fitting screen name for you and your ilk.

        • http://deleted Claire

          Well, I guess I am part of jopa’s ilk. Because I sure as heck do not think Fox News is fair and balanced. None of them are.

          • Vigilant

            Claire, I’ve seen many of your postings and believe me, you are not of the same ilk as jopa.

            If you haven’t checked out the link I provided, please do.

            Fox has been analyzed by independent media researchers and always tops or nearly tops the outlets that are most objective in their reporting. Many confuse the News programs (Shep Smith, Bret Baier, etc.) with opinion and entertainment programs (O’Reilly, Hannity, etc.). They are two different animals.

      • Mark in LA

        You are a fool if you think this article “proves” anything about Fox news or its intent. What Fox did was classic propaganda technique. The idea is to throw things out to the ignorant masses, knowing they will believe the general tone of the message. Later, if you are found out, you issue some correction that nobody will pay attention to.

        James Baker of the Reagan administration was famous for saying that if they say something at a press conference 200,000 people will read it in the paper. If it is wrong, 200 will read its retraction.

    Hmm “Houston” I put in one problem too many in the last post.Sorry!!

  • Angel Wannabe

    Attention_Bob Livingston__You and G Beck are the only ones I’d trust to tell the truth on this!__looks as if the Bank Cabal is tumbling???

    Below is a link for the Public Banking Institute_I just came across this in an article,our state is on the list to do this, I wondered if you have heard of this?__wondering if this is on the up and up, or is someone pulling a fast one?
    (ps,_ I can’t get your email to work on my puter’ or I would’ve sent this via email.)

    Well Mr. Vigilant , if and when you do retire and go to Wisconsin looking for a palm to sit under they may have some in Milwaukee in a place called the Domes.However not in Madison.Good thing Fox news doesn’t bill themselves as a travel agency, Right.

    • Vigilant

      jopa, some how I KNEW you wouldn’t check out the link I provided.

      Your refusal to even read the debunking link proves you don’t want to know the truth, and even if it hit you in the face you would deny it.

      Next time, try to respond to my comments with some factual backup or sources, instead of making wiseass comments that only you think are cute.

      • JoeH.

        Vigilant,
        Well, one thing for sure. If he keeps THAT promise, you’ll never hear from him again!!!

  • alex

    Bob Livingston must be fake. No face.

    • libertytrain

      You have no face – are you fake? :) :) :)

      • libertytrain

        There, now we all have faces…. :)

  • jopa

    Vigilant; I went back and reviewed the entire video and realized I was right on the money again.In the video Tobin was talking about the protesters in Madison at the exact same time as the palm tree segment aired.This was on Foxes behalf very misleading to the viewers as if this video were happening in Wisconsin at that given moment.The Wisconsin protesters were so dignified and mature that Fox had to go through their library of video clips to make the story more interesting and dug up an old tea party protest perhaps for a little suspense.When the other networks do this sort of thing they are more honest about there telecast and would apologize if there was any confusion.Fox is intentionally misleading.

    • Vigilant

      “Right on the money,” you say? You have some curious blind spots when you read a piece that doesn’t neatly fold into your point of view.

      What part of the following do you not understand? It’s excerpted from the linked article:

      “O’Reilly clearly identified the videos as collectively coming from “all over the country.” As many shows do, this B-roll footage was replayed again during the rest of the segment, including during an interview with Mike Tobin, Fox News’ reporter who’s been on the ground in Wisconsin.

      “Here’s where the problem occurred. Tobin was discussing Wisconsin (since that where he’s been) while the general footage played in the background. Taken out of context, these few seconds would seem deceptive. But, if you’d already seen the full segment, you’d recognize what the footage was.”

  • FreedomFighter

    very sloppy stuff for propaganda, whomever authorized it should be fired.

    The American journalism media would have plenty of factual news to report if it would only be honest about it. That’s a tall order and this media’s conduct is cowardly and shameful! It deserves a general boycott by Americans!

    There are plenty of demonstrations in Russia in the many cities as indicated. That is no exaggeration. My source of information is neither “Russia Today,” BBC, or the American media. None can be trusted.
    What is happening in Russia is dangerous for Russian people who are demonstrating. They are very courageous to go up against the Putin machine.
    Most Americans have no idea how prized a legitimate, individual, vote is to a Russian. They want real change to real democracy. They value that which you take for granted.

    Americans take heed! You never miss the water until the well runs dry!
