    I have a family member that has completely drank the FOX news kool-aid.

    Her response about news to me "I don't want to get into a discussion but I believe FOX news is the most fair and balanced of any network out there and I'm not in the mood to debate it."

    How are you even able to debate ANYTHING with a person that uses the networks campaign slogan word for word?!?

    I'm still floored by her statement to me...

    Hate that. It's like, I have my opinion, I have my reasons for my opinions, but I'm unwilling to share my reasons lest they be disproven.

    Fox News Contributor Tyrus Sent Lewd Texts To Colleague: ‘Pull Your Boobs Out’

    Fox Nation split up Tyrus and his former co-host, Britt McHenry, after he sent her the messages. But he still works at the network.

    No it's beyond that.  I'm bullheaded like most of my family but I can listen to certain things and call bullshit.

    I used to listen to Hannity because people always talked great about him (Consider the sources, I know) and couldn't understand why they loved him.

    Glen Beck was insane so I enjoyed him though.

    I watch Fox now to see what the other half thinks.  I do agree with them that the left has an absolute bias towards the President.

    On FOX? Of course!  Not too much anywhere else.

    Obama was the first president I saw that held office and wasn't respected.  We saw a shoe or two get thrown at Bush but that was in a different country but nothing like how Obama and Trump have been treated while in office.  Not even close.

    Everyone has an opinion now and people that "tweet" it will get picked up and before you know it, it's viral or trending.

    That seems to be the norm now with biases.  They root for their base and shun the opposition.

    It's getting hard to find a bipartisan news source that doesn't have pundits that tell the news.  BBC is still good, Maddow and Hannity, Carlson suck.  

    Young Turks crack me up.

    The Dayton shooter was a far leftist.  I don’t see cnn covering that.  But it is true.  Most Americans aren’t caught up on some race war that certain media is pushing.  It really is probably low on the list.  Most Americans aren’t experiencing this divisiveness that CNN is pushing.  Ratings wise, most Americans aren’t even watching CNN anymore because they aren’t in tune with the country.  But it’s one of the few legs dems can stand on for the next election.  Push the agenda that you think will get you to the finish line.  Tucker is right, most Americans aren’t concerned.  What they are concerned about is their jobs, the economy, and taxes.  Sorry for not making a mountain out of a mole hill because Don Lemon looks sad.  He’s got his audience that cares, Tucker has his.  Ratings are ratings.  It is what it is.

    Didn’t vote last go around.  Didn’t feel good voting for either.  Why would you ask that by the way?

    Because you believe KISS famous "ALIVE" series of live albums starting with the groundbreaking first Alive in 1975 are called "Live". 

    Looking for a reason for that. Wondered if you might had been one of those libtards voting for Hillary and not appreciating great patriotic american music.

    Is there an indication that the shooter acted out of some sort of political or idealogical conviction? In this instance it appears his politics were separate from his actions (unlike El Paso). The guy had issues. Had hit lists of girls/women. Was kicked out of high school for his bad behavior. Was seen as "creepy" by women who knew him. I believe the guy who was with his sister was the first one shot. Seems more like domestic violence rather than domestic terrorism, or political action.

    You say most americans a lot.  What are you basing this on?  And I'm not going to try and label you, but I am interested to know where you live.  City? Rural? Midwest? NE?

    Agreed.

    Also, CNN did report about his twitter page. I could be wrong, but I think they were the first to report it. But, like you said, there is no indication that his shooting was politically motivated. It's not like he wrote a four page manifesto detailing why he was trying to kill a bunch of people like the guy in Texas did. Therefore, his political leanings are not the story.

    Sometimes I think people like @[email protected] aren't interested in the truth. They're just interested in what they want to be the truth. He's not alone. That's why these opinion shows on Fox get such good ratings......despite force feeding garbage to their viewers on a nightly basis. 

    It is interesting to note that Tucker announced he was abruptly going on a vacation the night after this episode aired.
