That is so far to the right. It should only say that Israel launched.  :)

Now, when Obamacare passes (infuriating conservatives), Bill Oreilly goes on air explaining both sides of the debate, and then invites James Carville - a senior Democratic strategist, to explain the full Democratic point of view on Obamacare. Fox believes that this is considered Fair and Balanced.
Chris Matthews has had high ranking republicans on his show all the time. does this make him fair and balanced, of course not.
I just found a new supply of forks!

If he had the thrill going up his leg for republicans then he would be.

Not very accurate, the analogue to know would be more on the lines of "8 Saudis killed in demolition of American business center"

If you look at the time you would see the other one was a repost

Okay, let's wake up another sleeping thread and show it what 2020 looks like...

Not sure where to post this, and I'm hesitant about starting a new thread, so I guess this is the second best place.

For those not familiar with him, he took over for Bill Hemmer a few months ago when Hemmer got his own show during the 3 o'clock hour, replacing Sheppard Smith.

Sharing a piece of news. Some people on this forum may not be so familiar with the anchors of TV news outlets, so I'm giving a drop of background.

For sure.

It wasn't the optimal thread. But is there a thread about Allegations?
