  1. Evelyn Kromer says:

    I am a conservative and find that all of the other news stations are totally slanted to the left. Therefore, Fox News is the only news channel I listen to any more. It didn’t used to be this way, but since this last presidential campaign and now presidency, I am finding that I don’t hear both sides on any of the regular news channels any longer. It would be nice to be able to turn to any of the news stations and know I would hear an unbiased report of the news, but I don’t see that happening any more. Thank you for letting me express my opinion. Evie Kromer

    Evelyn, Thank you for your polite and rational comment. They’re so rarely seen from supporters of Fox News… You agree that the news should not be slanted either way. So, why support Fox News, if they are so far slanted to the right as to be blatantly misleading and consistently caught manipulating the news?

    Check out the “truth” tag to see evidence of such falsehoods:

  3. FNB,
    Most conservatives listento and/or watch news from several different sourcesand slants. We don’t want to be force fed by anyone, so therefore we research for ourselves. I personally listen to Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs & Ed Schultz (I’ve actually agreed with all of them at some point).
    I also ask for specifics so that I can decide FOR MYSELF what the truth is because it usually lies somewhere in the middle.

    The reason I support Fox News (and CNN, MSNBC, Ed Schultz, etc) is because I think that debate and different opinions are a GOOD thing. While I vehemently disagree with everything I have seen on this site, I would stand WITH YOU if someone tried to shut you down or silence you. I want EVERYONE to be able to express their opinions whether I agree with them or not, but we are the ones labeled as “obstructionists” and “intolerant”???

    Maybe, just maybe, some of you should afford us the same respect you ask for. Perhaps that would stop dividing us so that we can work together to return our country to the wonderful foundation that it was built on.

    CRWE, That’s great that you get your information from multiple news sources and I can respect that. However, 99% of the comments that get deleted are from Fox News supporters who go off on insane, off topic rants, and are polar opposite from you. I do wonder about your statement about disagreeing with everything you’ve seen on this site. Am I to take that to mean that you agree with the falsehoods and manipulations from Fox News and their personalities, yet disagree with the truth exposed about such? Again, check out the “truth” tag for examples before you think I am just being biased.

  5. FNB,
    I only said that I disagreed with everything I have *seen* on this site. I just found it a couple of hours ago, so I haven’t had time to look through everything and decide if I agree with you or not on the majority of the website. I apologize for not being clear about that.

    Also, I never said nor implied that you were biased, but since you brought it up I would say that MOST people are biased. Not in a negative, lie about everything kind of way, but it’s just human nature to gravitate towards and give credence to people/ideas that are similar to our own. I don’t fault you for being biased (if you are) against Fox, just as I don’t fault others for being biased against MSNBC (for example). That being said, we must ALL strive to find the truth that is woven in with the lies from most politicians/power brokers/news sources.

    One thing I would ask everyone to consider is that there are always people who attach themselves to movements/causes that don’t reflect the attitudes of the majority involved. One thing that I have personally stressed and that Glenn Beck stresses in his book “Common Sense” is that taking up arms (violence) is in no way, shape or form acceptable; that the spilling of blood is NOT the correct path.

    That being said, many of us (myself included) ARE angry. We don’t appreciate being minimalized (it’s all orchestrated and these people are “plants), ridiculed (ignorant people being misled/used) and humiliated (“tea-baggers”) . I would guess that most people wouldn’t appreciate these things and would have a strong response to such remarks.

    I fully believe that if we will turn to each other instead of against each other and quit letting ourselves be manipulated by those who seek to divide (power brokers, politicians, etc) that we can find common ground to help resolve some of the issues that currently divide us. We can’t rely on the government to do that because it is our job and our responsibility.

    I appreciate your allowing my comments to stand and I will do my best to be as civil as possible at all times.


  6. Great Job. Please keep writing the companies that advertise on fox news. This type of hate speech has no place in America. These companies are associated their brand names with hatred and fantasies about killing elected officials.

    Myself and many other Americans appreciate your work. I hope that you continue to write and call companies informing them to pull their advertisements.

    Thank you very much.

  7. See if it’s possible to get all the advertisers on a rolling blogroll so it could be used as a widget. If not I will make one.

  8. Please, please, please fix the links/URLs on the left hand pane that are spilling over into the main text. You guys are doing a great job, and your public-facing pages should be presenting you in the best light.

  9. FoxNewsBoycott says:

    Dick, Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I see IE6 was not wrapping the links correctly, so I’ve shortened them in this column. Please let me know if it still doesn’t look right, and what browser you’re using.

  10. State Farm says they will no longer advertise on shows containing political comment.
