Syria has certainly led to some strange bedfellows lately.

How are they allowed to call themselves a News organization anymore.

ThinkProgress is really stretching here. Wallace asked for a response to comments made by Syrian officials. There's nothing wrong with that and it's not his fault if the Syrian govt lies.

Because both sides baddy bad or something.

CNN and FN massively suck and television would greatly improve if they were removed, just for different reasons.

Now Wallace should reminds us again that he's a journalist, a fair and impartial journalist, simply reporting the news, not creating it, and not pushing ideology or partisan politics, and so he shouldn't be lumped in with the likes of O'Reilly and Hannity, the very idea is preposterous.

There are no "good" sides in this, there's only a humanitarian crisis.

...Which we'll probably ignore, unless Chevron scientists figure out a way to get profitable energy out of alleviating human suffering.

Just as an aside, AJ America is doing a great job of covering all kinds of stuff that you don't see on CNN or just about anywhere else.

I'd highly recommend that if you have a chance, sit down and watch it every now and again.  It reminds me of what news used to be like, say, 20 years ago.

I was copying and pasting top-voted comments off the Huffington Post, which the original article actually linked.

Some content filters can be really, really stupid, especially those that work off of user-submitted ratings and complaints. There was one at a hospice that I spent time in that blocked the Houston Chronicle as porn. So it might be censorship, or it might just be a really dumb filter.

According to their lawyers Fox news isn't a news organization, they are an entertainment organization.

There aren't two sides to every issue, and behavior of the supposed 'liberal' media is quite different compared to Fox News.  Think Progress, MSNBC, Daily Kos, Mother Jones, etc, actually use real data and facts to back up their stories.  Yes, they tend to cover issues that are more liberal audience finds appealing, but when they report, they report the truth.

Fox has built an empire on manufacturing outrage, misquoting to get the desired effect, misdirecting the discussion on issues, and misrepresenting the facts.

Being on opposite sides of the political spectrum does not make them equal in terms of journalistic integrity and value.

Not related to Fox News, but :

KERRY: I don't believe so at all and that is in the hands of the Congress of the U.S. The president has made his decision. The president wants to stand up and make certain that we uphold the international norm.... I think the Assad regime needs to recognize that they have refocused the energy of the American people on him, on his regime.

That phrase is really getting on my damned nerves.  The international norm is to stand by the treaties we've already signed.  Striking Syria would be a direct violation of our treaties with the UN.
 
2013-09-02 03:35:33 PM
The Syrian government is secular, so it would have been Syrian propaganda, but not Islamic.

Don't expect either Fox or submittard to know that though.

Um...no.  Think Progress typically quotes directly.  Usually they include video or audio of what they are covering so you can see/hear it yourself.  Wallace either did or did not say what they claim he said.

FOX et al spend most of their time mocking Obama for his choice of paperclips or asking Donald Trump what his opinion is (that is, in the rare event that the triumvirate of geniuses at FOX & Friends can't sufficiently derpsplain what unconstitutional outrage Obama will be using to destroy America that day).
