Guess where I saw this? Right before a commercial on Fox News, right under the Fox News logo. I normally never ever watch Fox News except for The O'Reilly Factor but I was flipping through channels just now and when I saw this my jaw dropped wide open. I was speechless for a minute as this is the worst blatant bit of propaganda I've ever seen on TV. Obviously I think this the most ridiculous quote ever. What do you think - not just about the quote itself but about how Fox News can say something so incorrect? Also I wonder how many people here are going to react to that first line and not read this all the way through lol. :\

Hey Not, that's just more blatant propaganda than you're used to seeing. The ABC, NBC, and CBS have all been guilty of propaganda on the left side. I don't understand why everyone says how right the other news stations are and how wrong Fox is when the other stations are just as far off in the opposite direction. And I have to agree, America isn't the problem, BUSH is the problem. lol

I don't even watch news on TV normally but I understand what you mean. That's one of the reasons I love getting my news off of the Internet. I can quickly pick and choose articles from both sides from countries all over the world and only then decide in my own head what's right. Anyway, Bush is the problem, indeed. I feel a "fun with Photoshop" moment coming on lol. :P

Fox News Propaganda - Who ever came up with this over at Fox News must have been dropped on his/her head recently!
I found a pic of this online for those who are interested...

It depends on what they were talking about. When countries have problems sometimes it isn't all their fault. Havent you felt that way in an argument? What were they talking about?

No one was talking about anything. Look at my comment above and you can see the screen shot of what I was talking about. The way it is presented, it is a closed-ended argument with no room for debate.

Hell, it wasn't even an argument because no one was talking. It was just a graphic like a commercial.

HAHAHA! I never watch Fox, but I have heard people say how they tend to twist words so people will think other things rather than what is right. It is their form of journalism. I stick to CNN. Yeah Fox always has propaganda in some form or fashion. That is what gets them the ratings. They could care less about what they are portraying as long as they get the ratings!

I'm from the UK so I don't watch US news channels. From what I've heard about FOX it appeals to a particular audience (conservative/republican) and that's exacly the message they want to hear. I don't think this new message will get them any new fans or lose them any of their existing viewers.
