6. It does have a certain trainwreck quality
Edited on Fri Aug-11-06 11:30 AM by nam78_two
Their talent at twisting news is certainly interesting just as a phenonenon...

And mostly to see what lies people are hearing....
Its also pretty funny when things like hannity completely lose it...

12. I don't watch.
And I honestly do not understand why some people here do watch and are constantly outraged and shocked over the latest at Faux news. Like we should expect anything else. Seems like a waste of time to me.

20. I only watch it when Wes Clark's going to be on.
It's funny to watch both the news readers and audience glaze over in shell-shocked euphoria when Clark presents a fundamental truth to them that they would never hear on Faux.

Like when he told the Faux audience member that we can't be rushing over to the Middle East to occupy Iran, Syria and Lebanon unless we want our children to spend the rest of their lives in a uniform.

It's really funny to watch him rile Bill O'Lielly and Sean Insannity by discussing real diplomacy and smart foreign policy, too. They both look completely stupid and useless when they try to correct him even though neither have either served in the military or in any capacity as a successful diplomat or foreign policy wonk. :rofl:

24. I've only seen it when I'm in a waiting room or store...
and they have it on. I would never voluntarily watch it. The last time I caught a glimpse was when I darted into Radio Shack, and it was on. They were gritching about who Katie Couric being hired as the new CBS anchor is a liberal conspiracy. :eyes:
