    I can smell your ignorance. It isn't a crime to be ignorant, but when you write stuff like this, it opens yourself up to be questioned and mocked; The two things you are hypersensitve to. Im begininng to see how weak you people are......you are so terrified of being wrong that you run from basic confrontations and you place fetish worship in military might and violence. So weak and pinheaded......you turn to bombing people as the first resort and you preach against what you hate the most......yourselves. Go Haggard, Go Delay, Go Stewart, Go Dobson, Go Limbaugh,........



    You politicize EVERYTHING>...nothing is off the table. And you call us weak because we dont organize and follow directions from someone that is interested in their poliltical life and nothing else. YOur prgoress involves the welfare of the US and nothing else. I'll bet anything that you couldnt care less how many iraqi citizens have died.....it just isnt in your scope. When the reports came out that the civilian war deaths in Iraq; including those that have starved, been bombed, been displaced and become gravely ill, died from otherwise absent water-borne disease; hit an estimated 655,000, the right's reaction was: "no, I dont like the way they compiled the data." Two things......evil denial of human suffering and ignorance at the greatest and most dangerous level. That test was the standard that the US Army developled and uses throughout the world and the mere fact that yu want to deny EVERy death just shows my point to all of this....see below.



    stupid liberals blah blah.....eat an egg. You have not listened to a single piece of advice we have given, and, because you are in absolute control of how this country acts, you have gotten us stuck in Iraq. Kerry was ABSOLUTELY correct.....if you cared to weigh the risks and be even slightly curious about how your actions MIGHT turn out, you wouldnt have taken a risk and invaded a country that could never harm us: you saw how quickly we obliterated their army.....



    It is sooooo funny. You can only come back with OH....Blame America First!!!! NOPE....that is another stupid thing to say. It may appear that way to you, but realize from our side, you blame America for absolutely NOTHING. Pure innocence. That is Fox's stance,and that is why it is more pernicious than state run media. It is a microphone for a government and it is masked as a news outlet, so people --the most ignorant of the country --dont question what they are seeing and I cannot blame them. Again, ignorance is not a crime, but exploiting the weakest amongst is....but I thought that was what Jesus said, so dont take it from me.

    I can answer your rant really quickly......

    The US no longer participates in governing, helping, or policing the world and every country can fend for themselves. Problem solved. Lets see how long it takes Europe or any other nation to beg for our help. Me personally I want to take care of the people here we have enough homelessness to go around for everyone

    The Swedish Broadcasting Commission

    The Swedish Press and Broadcasting Authority also includes the Swedish Broadcasting Commission as an independent decision-making body. The Commission examines the contents of radio and TV programmes to see whether they adhere to the applicable broadcasting regulations.

    The Commission’s investigations are either carried out based on viewers and listeners complaints regarding a programme, or at our initiative. Out of all the complaints received, only a few are investigated by the Commission as a whole. The complaints that are investigated by the Commission are often of a more complex nature, or concerns matters of principle.

    Impartiality

    Applies to: The public service companies (SVT, SR and UR)

    Being impartial is to adopt a neutral attitude without bias. Impartiality mainly involves three things:

    • If a person is clearly singled out and criticised, they should be given an opportunity to respond to the criticism.
    • Controversial topics or events may not be treated with bias.
    • Representatives of the broadcasting company may not take sides in a controversial issue.

    The impartiality requirement does not, however, mean that a segment cannot adopt a critical approach or a particular angle. The public service companies are obligated to comment on different events, promote debate and scrutinise companies, organisations and authorities. The public service companies' obligation to comment also implies a certain scope for evaluative opinions.

    Criticism of a clearly designated party

    If a clearly designated party is subjected to severe criticism or serious accusations, they should, as a rule, be given an opportunity to defend themselves in the same programme. This can be achieved either through the designated party’s participation in the programme or by providing a statement by the party. Refusal to participate does not preclude the programme being aired. In such cases, the designated party's opinion should be presented in another way when possible.

    Biased treatment of a topic or an event

    Controversial topics or events may not be treated biasedly so that only one party's version or views clearly dominate. It is, however, allowed to depict a topic from a particular point of view, if it is evident from the programme or the programme's presentation. A biased report in one programme may be balanced by another report in another programme.


    Maybe PBS adheres to rules like this just like swedish television?

    Just read that rules for impartiality have been removed for other companies/broadcasters than public service companies in Sweden. So, not much different from Fox News in that regard.

    But do you have something similar to our "broadcast commision" in the states?

    The Obama years were hard on Hannity and his type, the lack of scandal and the steady economic progress left them searching for material to use to trash the President.  It really drove folks like him deep into weirdo conspiracy territory.  Benghazi was the mortar that sealed that behavior in.
    Now they can't abandon their "deep state" worldview, it's too deeply seated (or is it seeded?) and they've already had to do somersaults.

    Hannity listed his cherry-picked and biased economic indicators on his radio program every single day for the entirety of the 3 year campaign.  Then Trump won and he had to turn around in the span of 3 months and pretend that the economy which he said was in shambles, with phony govt economic accounting, is now booming, and all those economic stats (like unemployment in particular) are proof of Trump's supremacy.  

    I almost feel bad for the guy, it must be exhausting living in a state of doublethink 24/7, living an incredibly busy and demanding public life that is literally focused on the exercise of doublethink.  Yikes.  Miserable.

    you know, comments I see on social media (and from a select few here) keep talking about liberal hate and all that. All I see is the exact opposite; liberal anger (not hate) at social injustice and presidential embarassment, and conservative hate for the "evils" of progression and acceptance. 

    the whole snowflake thing baffles me, like this is somehow an insult. "awww, poor little guy, he CARES about people, what a loser". and yet they are proud of being "deplorable", like somehow owning the term changes its definition. so odd.

    I used to be able to watch and listen to Hannity some during the Obama years just to see his manipulation techniques and get a jump on the false narrative building. Now he’s such a pathetic trump shill I can only watch for a few minutes. 

    Last night on Fox, I didn’t see even a mention of trump saying he wanted Mueller fired. Naturally on msnbc it received 100% coverage!

    Fox and Friends this morning looked so pissed that they had to report on the NY Times story. The woman even said something like "Do ya even care?" And they were going on and on about anonymous sources, but I believe they failed to mention that Fox News also confirmed the story.
