      What kind of respectable person for FOX? Wallace is window dresssing, but the FOX audience had learned to ignore Wallace and the other window dressing guy. This is why Democrats should never go on FOX.

        I agree with this. It looks like Beto is as well. Mayor Pete has basically been the mayor of a small, liberal, college town- while somehow managing to piss off the poor black community living there. I visited Notre Dame, and like, there is nothing going on there. How hard could it be to manage? Gainesville is bigger than South Bend and has more happening.

          Chris Wallace, Bret Baire, Shep Smith, Brit Hume.

          Your solution is for everyone to stay in their own bubble. You will never reach the small percentage of viewers who may be open to viewing things differently.

            They all are intelligent, although I question Tulsi at times. I don't know why she is running. She was just here in LA and not that many people showed up. I dont know who she hates more: Hillary or Trump. Definitely Hillary.

            Fox is a bubble. Thats why its viewers all repeat the same things. I lived in Alachua, FL and Wheeling, WV in the sticks with MAGA people. You dont need FOX in order to talk to them. Elizabeth Warren is going to areas that heavily voted for Trump, like West Virginia last week. She talks directly to Trump's base without the Fox filter, but will answer questions from Fox reporters who are at her events. What is wrong with this approach?

            Here is a question. Why doesnt Trump go on MSNBC to try to reach out to liberals? Nobody ever asks him this question, but constantly ask Dems running for president why they dont go on Fox.

              I'll give you chris and Shep. The others are hacks. When is the last time any "journalist" working for FOX broke a story that was harmful to Republicans or Trump? That's not why they exist. What if you were in professional sports and ypu knew all of the refs working a game, hated your guts? Wouldn't you ask for a different set of refs? Would that make you a "scaredy cat", as people are saying about Democrats who refuse to go on? It would be one thing if Fox was actually fair and balanced. But they are not.

                I really don't watch fox. From what little I've seen Baire and Hume are mostly reasonable. Reporters can have different leanings. On other news networks some reporters clearly have a slant. As long as they are objective and try to be balanced I don't hold against them.

                Because that is what trolls do to eat up time and change the subject.

                  Funny... I consider Shep and Wallace as hacks. They both seem to think that their opinions on the stories they cover actually matter.

                      I'm curious why in the past you stated you are pro choice, then why are you often arguing against those with pro choice views.

                      I was not the one who brought up the problematic acorn analogy. He walked into that one.

                      Yes, I’ve stated in the last 24 hours that I’m pro-abortion but acknowledge, as I have for years, that is killing. I thought your acorn analogy was good, but given the other conversation about deficits and PPACA, you did stumble into the under pinning of PPACA, that neither the acorn nor the old diseased oak are of value in that system and are expendable... resources will be allocated to young (but not infant or acorn) oaks that will be productive to society

                      So when do non-Fox networks even mention fairness, balanced admitted (other-side opinions) ?
                      It turns me off to any debate when one side (Left) says misinformation and then tries to "talk-smother" the other's rebuttal of facts/logic. Facts and Truth get pre-drowned on MSM networks.

                        Well of course it is killing. That doesn't mean it is murder or comparable to murder.

                        Actually I relish sawing down old pollen filled, leaf dropping, mildew producing and messy Oak trees....so that the young ones can have enough sunlight to grow....

                        Correct... in fact, it’s whatever legal label of the day we use to justify killing. I was with you until “comparable”

                        PS nice job avoiding Quality Adjusted Life Years and your acorn/oak analogy
