Brock Seething FOX


When Govt attacks critical media ...

"... I have to say that if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it is a constant venue. They will find folks who make me mad. I don’t know where they find them. They’re all like, “I don’t want to work. I just want a free Obama Phone, or whatever.” And that becomes an entire narrative that gets worked up. And very rarely do you hear an interview of a waitress, which is much more typical — who is raising a couple of kids and doing everything right but still can’t pay the bills."  Mr. Disingenuous

A proper retort:

In the latest episode of the American Enterprise Institute’s “Banter” podcast, Fox News regular Kirsten Powers, author of the new book, “The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech,” took aim at the Obama White House for the efforts it had made early in President Barack Obama’s presidency to delegitimize Fox News.
Powers explained this was just one instance of the regular occurring theme of some of the left side of the ideological spectrum trying to limit free speech.
“It’s been gradual,” she said. “It started out with the administration’s, what I call the war on Fox News, when they said Fox News is not a legitimate organization and started this really concerted campaign to delegitimize a news organization. That was the first time where I went, ‘Hmm, this doesn’t seem right.” You know, something is a little off here. This isn’t really the role of the government. It isn’t really something the White House should be lending its stature to and the fact that they were unable – as you remember I voted for Obama and he was very popular when he first came in. And the media was completely enthralled by him. So the idea you couldn’t have one media outlet that wasn’t on board with to me was chilling. It was like, ‘Wow, you need everybody worshipping you.’ So that was concerning.”
Powers said at the time she saw it as an isolated incident, but then as the years went by, there were more incidents that caught he attention.

Obama finally gets it right. There is no Islamic Extremism. The murdering, etc is just plain ol' Islam. Some are just more adherent to their faith - just like Christianity.

Many TV services have One America News. It is mostly news, and generally conservative. OAN does have some commentary, but doesn't mix it with news. They were a cosponsor of the Conservative Political Action Conference, and had a speaker: Tomi Lahren. Lahren has a weekend opinion program on OAN. She is conservative, a good speaker, blonde, 22, and a babe.

OAN does make a few mistakes. Their crawl is sometimes problematic in spots. They sometimes mispronounce persons and places, but all networks seem to do that. Overall, though, they are an excellent news network. If you have it, try it.

They are very new, and linked to another network, AWE, A Wealth of Entertainment. It used to be called the Wealth Network. It carries shows about upscale life, cruises, castles and kings, and so on. I love it.

I have Prism TV, associated with Century Link. If you use Prism, you already have OAN. If you have another provider, you might ask for it.
