Thank You Fox News

i'd like to take this opportunity to thank Fox News for their 72 hour round-the-clock coverage of the Aruba and Montana abduction stories. i wonder when they will change their name to the "Freako Crime News Network?"

i don't know what is more scintillating television, the panel discussions where "journalists" psychoanalyze the freako perpetrators ad nauseam, or the remote updates from the van der Sloot compound every fifteen minutes.

It's not like there might be some other things going on in the world right now. i mean, come on. i had to watch CNN! i will watch CNN if i have to, but i never feel good about doing it.

MSNBC is out of the question. But Atlas is right. Fox News is becoming unwatchable.

I don't watch it either, but Greta's ratings are going through the roof. We seem to be in the curmudgeonly minority.

I can't stand it either. When will they bring back the psychic (psycho?)who told us Chandra Levy would be found in a wooded area. I guess her body is near the water. Why don't they just pick the next winning Powerball numbers anyway? We can't possibly hear about anything that makes a difference, like a war, or a Supreme Court vacancy. Not when we can talk about who's doing who in Hollywood. Fox sucks - unfortunately the alternatives also suck. I've started watching the History Channel for entertainment. I'll get my news from the net.

Of course, my favorite Fox show is Brett Hume's show. I can barely ever watch Hannity and Colmes. But what's up with Greta and the viewers? Her show is the most boring, repetitive show in television history, and her ratings are shooting up?! Its enough to make you want to join the Dem elitists, and look down my nose at the "unenlightened masses."

You might consider diversifying your news sources, as I began to feel almost hypnotized by FN. The Newshour with Jim Lehrer is actually a pretty level source, and C-Span coupled with TIVO allows one to get it straight from the horses mouth. Indeed, I like to look at both sides, just to see who's selectively trumpeting data-mined nuggets.

We've regrettably been stuck with naught but CNN for a few months now--it is no different. (and no better)

But I do miss Special Report...Lou Dobbs or Aaron Brown just...suck.

Y'all dare criticize the almighty televised media sanctuary of the Right?! Blasphemy!

The internet alternative news sites were invented for those like me who are sick of hollywood and pervert oriented T.V. media. I dont watch any of that crap anymore and i dont miss it.

You're right. The Halloway story is not news, tragic as it is. I am so sick of the Fox coverage of it, that today I switched off Fox and turned on CNN Headline News. I feel sick with sin.

just turn the boob tube to the off position and let the media bloviate to nothingness! their meds will finally begin to work. us hustings will heal on our own not being made crazy by the tv media.....

Avoid Greta and Geraldo altogether, and Fox News is more watchable.

You know, I couldn't take "The Laci Peterson Show with Greta," and equally despise the re-tooled "The Missing Chick in Aruba Show with Greta." Ugh. What a waste of airtime.

At the risk of sounding like stone-hearted bastard, I don't give a flying fig about all of these missing attractive (white) women. Or that boy scout. Sure, it's terrible for their loved ones, but it has absolutely no effect on my life.

Damn. I'm probably younger than all of you, and I still remember that song from when I was in kindergarten.

Fox should change their name to LNN, the Lascivious News Network. Sadly, salasciousness, sans substance, SELLS.

Greta is wonderful you guys just don't get it she's a class act! When she covers what others are doing is when she becomes stale! Go Gretta!!!!!
