Hyp-FOX-cracy: Older Story Worth Not Letting Go Away...

Disgusting...

For years I've watched FOX on and off not liking what I saw... This short YouTube documentary from Brave New Films is about FOX news and their hypocritical rants against porn and indecency. How they use sex to sell their lies to their primary audience, white men.

The show that upsets me the most on FOX is one late at night that is non-stop sex, depravity, tasteless and not funny sexually disgusting jokes and just overall bad programming. I won't give them any advertisement for this shameless display of locker room drivel, but I will say that even at 1 am if I come across it, it only takes 3 secs for me to hear something offensive and change the channel or decide it's time to try to sleep.

I'd like to thank Brave New Films for this cross section of something I've seen on FOX for years and thought was unbelieveable. I'd also like to point out that it's not just FOX news, but also FOX prime time television that pushes the line of decency to outrageous levels. I remember watching one night and seeing a sex scene on a 8pm drama that made me run downstairs and make sure my girls were not watching that channel!

Anyway, this has been posted by bloggers all over the internet, talked about by Olbermann and a two month long conversation that needs to be mentioned. I could be wrong, but I didn't see one post from a WI blogger on this on Technorati, so I thought I'd make sure the conversation is brought home...

I'm not for censorship mind you, just want to say that if you are going to be disgusted by something, don't use that same thing that disgusts you to sell advertising while you are simutaneously blasting it!!!

I can't agree with you more on this! I can't watch any news on FOX because I get so angry I want to throw something at the TV.
I thought the worst was the reporting on the serial killer and then showing so many potential victims and exactly where they were. Mind boggling to me.

I just can't believe they are speaking of DISGUSTING ads.....
Goes to prove: none so blind as those who refuse to hold themselves to the standards they set for others! (repugnant!!!)

If you don't like watching Fox News then don't watch it, Block that channel so your kids don't see it also. Stop complaining and start watching one of the religious channels with your children instead of surfing by yourself, you whining baby !!

Hey Anonymous...

Why don't you :
a)Read blogs that only say what you want to read...
b)only listen to things you want to hear...
c)only support candidates that YOU THINK - think as you think.

HEY - why don't you run for office? Clearly you know what EVERYONE thinks...

If you don't work for change - YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM!

Crawford's Take said...

What I REALLY want "anonymous" (so cowardly...one of my pet peeves, but I'm strong enough to take the heat from what I write, so hide if you feel so inclined...) is to no longer PAY the cable company to carry FOX News...

EVERY time I pay my cable bill, the bundled services require that I PAY FOX in order to get services and stations I do want. It's not as simple as blocking or turning it off... I did that a long time ago! I don't want to PAY for it anymore silly wabbit... (if you can call me names I can call you names, nah nah nee boo boo!)
