  1. I had no idea this was happening in Wisconsin as well, it's happening in Oklahoma too.

  2. You can almost feel the anchor's and reporter's rush to finish the report.
    The man yelling "Fox lies" next to the reporter is an honest man.

  3. Okay, I personally have a 50/50 opinion of unions. It makes sense to have them in the private sector, but I do support unions in the public sector being abolished. It's an entitlement fund that cannot be fiscally sustained. And we all know government employees are grossly overpaid and very lazy. I know a couple people who brag about getting paid 100k/year and all they do is play solitaire all day on their computer.

  4. The main reason for the protests in WI as I understand it is the Republican governor there trying to eliminate collective bargaining based an idealogical reasons but trying to blame unions for budget shortfalls.

    Most public unions there offered to take wages freezes and even pay cuts but that was not pursued.

  6. like, no

    U do know this covers teachers unions, right? How many teachers do you know that get paid 100k a year to sit around and play solitaire?

    Anyway, yes many gov jobs are redundant but that was the purpose. Created to provide jobs and cure the great depression/ prevent another great depression

    Instead of all the tax breaks which create nothing and bailing out rich banksters....the fed gov should have created hundreds of thousands of needless redundant jobs putting people to work and money into circulation on the lower end of the economy. that would have stopped and reversed the current recession

  10. Fox LIES indeed!

    It doesn't matter if at the end it was only one person saying the truth, "Fox LIES". That mantra was being yelled by the majority earlier.

    The fact that the reporter was focusing on that man gave even more visibility to the fact that Fox LIES.

    Living it and Loving It! :-)

  12. Everyone KNOWS despite what the GOPigs say (sorry Tank, LOL!), what they really want is to destroy Unions. In turn, the Unions have already agreed to concessions to get the budget crisis under control, but that radical right asswipe governor will not stop until he has destroyed the Unions ability to negotiate. Corporatist filth in the GOP and Flea Party are going to do everything they can to serve their Corporate Masters at the cost of you and I.

  13. A Fox News reporter was heckled by a crowd of Wisconsin protesters who chanted, "tell the truth!" during his entire report on Monday.

    It was the second time that a Fox reporter received a less-than-friendly welcome from the protesters, who are fighting the Republican governor's attempt to end collective bargaining for Wisconsin's public sector workers. On Saturday, Fox Business reporter Jeff Flock was nearly drowned out by chants of "Fox lies." This time, it was Fox News reporter Mike Tobin who received the brunt of the crowd's animus towards the channel.

    "Shep, you're going to have to listen above the hecklers as I answer your question," he told anchor Shepard Smith. The chants persisted through Tobin's entire exchange with Smith. When he finished his report, Smith said, "Mike Tobin, with not a lie in the bunch," a reference to the earlier incident.
