  1. does this surprise anyone?

    so what's the max that can happen? Fox admits its reporter lied & he gets fired (big maybe there)

    network continues on with lies it doesn't get caught in

  3. LOL DUH!

    now if the same media CNN and all had mentioned the 1973 FED law that gave Obama 48 hours to notify congress after comitting US troops to Lybia and he now has 60 days to win congressional approval..................

    Oh wait, controversy = ratings = $$$$

    educating the public and ending said s=controversy in 3 seconds as vs letting people bloviate on the news isn't profitable

    i myself did not know about the law till obama submited his notice to congress..............this issue infuriates me. It would have been nice if the media did its job and educated the public instead of entertaining controversy for controversy's sake

    US media sucks by not doing its job

  4. ps - is the "Cher to record country album" in the screencap supposed to make this topic more gay friendly / issue related?

    The 73 law was a result of the conflict in Vietnam, which was never declared a war. Nixon vetoed the law before it was overridden and every executive since has disputed the constitutionality of the law, and notified congress to varying degrees before/after taking military action. We did have an undeclared naval war with the French in the late 1700's, it seems to me that if the framers of the constitution saw something wrong with that, they would have remedied or clarified the law then.

  6. Do you mean people still actually watch CNN? It's ratings continue to tank just like MSNBC.

  7. Nic Robertson reported just what we

    After watching that, you have to insignificant are you at FOX and as an individual that YOU get sent on a (supposed 'FOX' known human shield) suicide mission while YOUR correspondent and cameraman sit back at the hotel? It can't do much for your self-esteem!!

    @Mark...when "Breaking News" hits, more people tune into CNN for news than any other network (cable (even FOX) or over-the-air) since CNN has more correspondents/reporters worldwide than any other U.S. network.

    BTW, it is now reported that FOX sent a 'security guard' with the camera. LOL
