Some people are smart enough to know what's good for them. It's just that some idiots need to be 'informed' by shameless media manipulators who pretend to be 'fair and balanced'.

There's no way anyone could glean good information from that witch hunt of an interview. It was one of the worst examples of schlock profiling that I've seen in a while. "Star Wars meets Debbie Does Dallas" is probably one the dumbest and most misleading statements made in that interview and my guess is that they already had it on a cue card somewhere before even going to air. Probably dreamed up in one of their brainstorming sessions to find arresting and sensational statements that idiots would eat up. The 'panel' of experts was questionable, let alone unjustified as their comments descended into a chorus of malign without reproach.

FOX 'News' is the biggest misnomer of all because they don't report news at all, but actually just project RIGHT WING OPINION using manipulative and underhanded practices.

You know what's really not good for you? Watching FOX and believing their reportage to be fair and balanced - it makes you weak of mind. Obviously.

What the hell? And here I was thinking, Mass Effect is one of the tamest video games of 2007. Wow. Talk about nothing else to report...

No, I'm looking at this thread and seeing what is called ignorance.

Funny the only ones who mention Christianity at all are the non-christians. You Idiots really think Christians are the only people against flagrant sexual displays?

The interview may be a joke, but some of you aren't far behind.

bahahahhahaha! You're kidding right??! FOX is often caught having its' shock jocks saying the words Christian and American in the same sentence, while also saying the words 'unchristian' and 'unAmerican' in others.

Look, no-one's attacking Christianity the religion but MANY people take issue with Right Wing Politicians USING Christian Guilt to amorally manipulate uninformed voters. This is compounded by media outlets like FOX who make the pretense of being fair and balanced when they are anything but.

I saw this on steamforums yesterday. That psychologist woman needs to hang herself. She has no clue what she's talking about.

Not like the Clinton News Network is any better. They have the liberal spin on things.

No, I'm dead serious. What are you afraid of eh? Are you trying to say left wingers don't try to manipulate? Some things are better left covered.

Manipulation via the media is something that exists on both sides but FOX News lies outright at every level and in every way they can. My statements stand and I'm no left winger (at least not in the American sense) but I take great issue with Fox News and their UNfair and UNbalanced manipulation.
