FOXNEWS is a "news" network, that has entertainment programs.

that fox viewers are brain dead morons and THINK they are watching news - well that is another story

I have no idea what O'Reilly is upset about, but he's right about Jon Stewart. He is going for the laugh regardless of veracity. Most of the time he's got the facts on his side, or a strong argument, but not all the time. Anyone watching his show for sobering discussion of facts is a moron (same goes for Bill or any pundit show), so I don't see why it's worth pointing out.

You know that there are actual studies that show that people who watch the Stewart show are more well-informed than other news sources.  Also, people who follow no news sources at all were shown to be better informed than Fox News viewers.

Except for the fact that Jon tends to get his facts right and O'Lielly tends to just make shiat up as he goes along.

There is more truth in a half hour Daily Show than in a 24 hour cycle on FOX News.

Two little problems with that theory.

1. The Daily Show is orders of magnitude less partisan than anything on Fox.  We're talking molehills to Mons Olympus levels of difference.
2. At least the Daily Show admits that they're not inherently a news shows.  Bill tells his viewers that he's handing out the God's honest truth.

Stewart used his Comedy Central show to lampoon O'Reilly last week for cutting his vacation short to rail against the media coverage of the events in Ferguson, Mo., the site of unrest and racial tension in the aftermath of the fatal police shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown.

Bill, when you have to warn your viewers not to take a show on a farking COMEDY network seriously, you have some really farking stupid viewers.

There is no such thing as a Republican/Tea Partier/right-winger who considers himself partisan.  They all consider themselves completely and utterly free of bias of any sort.  Only Libcommie DIMprogs are partisan.

The Daily Show, or the Colbert Report did a skit on what you're talking about here. Damn, I wish I could remember it. 

Basically, they showed you how what you said above is not true at all for Fox News. First they start off with their opinion shows just asking questions, which gets repeated by other shows. Literally the SAME thing as the other shows are saying. They repeat it enough, then slip it into their actual news programs. 

Fox News has an agenda to push. They use their "entertainment" shows to repeat it in a bubble, then pass it off as actual news once it's said enough. It's really quite ingenious if you think about it. Those looking on from the outside can see it. Those from within probably don't notice it.

They repeat it, prefaced with "Some people are saying" or "People are starting to ask", thereby preserving the thin veneer of truthiness in their "hard" news shows.

I remember Stewart commenting about this years ago, something along the lines of "Your lead-in is a news show. My lead-in is a show about puppets making crank phone calls".

This is the key point that most miss. Stewart never pretended to be "fair & balanced". What's O'Reilly's excuse?

By "Partisan," I assume it's the same as the current meaning of "liberal," which is: fact-and-reality based.

Crap. I missed that. Sorry.

So O'Reilly calling Stewart's show "partisan driven" is more like the grass calling the sky green?
 
2014-09-04 04:45:02 PM  
It's easy, guys. Partisan = liberal. If a liberal has an opinion on anything and expresses it, they're being partisan. If a TV show features a liberal as a host, whom is paid to offer their opinions, then not only is that show partisan, why the whole network is too!

But a conservative show host, on a conservative network? That's fair and balanced. Like I said, simple.

Dubya's_Coke_Dealer: By "Partisan," I assume it's the same as the current meaning of "liberal," which is: fact-and-reality based.


Correct. Liberal just means "not conservative." And you become "not conservative" by stating something which disagrees with a conservative, even if you identified yourself as conservative not a moment earlier.

For a time years ago I would watch Bill's show. I found it useful to know what my neo-con co-workers were going to say before they said it. The show was also occasionally funny (not on purpose of course) and on the rarest occasion Bill would actually make a salient point. Then came January 15 2007. Police found Shawn Hornbeck who had been held prisoner by a rapist for 4 years and was presumed dead by just about everyone. Bill had this to say:

"there was an element here that this kid [Hornbeck] liked about his circumstances,"

"The situation here for this kid looks to me to be a lot more fun than what he had under his old parents. He didn't have to go to school. He could run around and do whatever he wanted."

"Mark my words when all of this washes out we'll find he [Hornbeck] like his situation"

"After teaching teenagers in high school, it is hard for me to believe that a normal kid would stay in a horrible environment when escape was easy, especially if the child had confidence in his parents. No question this monster Devlin made threats and intimidated Shawn. But teenagers have brains, and Shawn had the freedom to get away if he wanted to."

When it all "washed out" we found out that Shawn was kidnapped at age 11 by a pedo-rapist and repeatedly sodomized for several days. He was then taken into the woods, tied to a tree, and a knife was put to his throat. He begged for his life saying he would be a willing sex slave for the PEDO-RAPIST that had kidnapped him if only he would spare Shawn his life and not kill his parents. Then for 4 years (from age 11 to 15) he was raped daily by that monster, until the police found him while looking for another boy the PEDO-RAPIST had kidnapped.

Bill O'Douche not only called this kid a liar, but insisted for DAYS that he enjoyed it and was "in on" the whole thing. He claimed he would apologize if he was wrong about his OPINION of the whole affair, but of course he did NOT do so. In fact he has never even said he was wrong let alone offered a real apology.

He can choke on a full bag of dicks daily. Anything this heartless narcissist has to say can be rightfully ignored.
