Skip to comments.Time for a new Fox? (Now an all pro-amnesty lineup)
Posted on 01/22/2013 9:56:09 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Does Fox News now have an All-Amnesty lineup? Looks like it. Sean Hannity and Bill OReilly have now fallen in line behind World Citizen Rupert Murdochs support of sweeping, generous immigration reform, including a path to citizenship. Karl Rove was always on board, of course.
What about Fox News viewers? Are they going to go along like sheep? They now have no network that represents their perspective on what seems to be a key issue for Obamas second term. Is it time for a new Fox? (Wouldnt it be time for a new Fox anyway? That lineup has been stale for years.)
P.S.: Is there any other issue in American politics where the medias coverage is so one-sided? Even non-PC newspapers are eager to expand Latino readershiptheyve been in a GOP-like panic about not offending Latinos for years. (When was the last time an L.A. Times editor sent a reporter to interview construction workers whod permanently lost their middle class jobs to cheaper undocumented labor?) Public radio stations get grants to broadcast Latino content, often drearily didactic and inevitably pro-amnesty. Now even the opposition isnt in opposition. I look forward to vigorous balanced debates between pro-amnesty Democrats and pro-amnesty Marco Rubio throughout the spring...

Haven’t watched FOX news since Rove’s disaster at the last election. And since they added Dennis Kookcinich, a virtually unemployable, worthless, boob to their lineup, it’ll be a cold day in hell before I watch that station.
I guess there really is NO alternative to the libtard press anymore.
I think they got Holder’d. Too bad the Judge got axed.
I have already stop watching since Obama won. I’m sick and tired of them too.
They don’t like being on the perceived losing side and are willing to throw away their core beliefs in order to get some hispanics to vote for them and to take one argument away from liberals. They do this to feather their own nests, increase their viewing/listening audiences and to gain, what they think is, issue relevance. They have all lost whatever connection they had with common working, tax paying America. Somebody needs to test the water in DC and NYC...there’s some bad stuff in it as far as I can tell.
I was in Florida and just happened to hear Marco Rubio explain his immigration plan for dealing with illegal immigrants. I don’t know if that was repeated on Fox or not, because I wasn’t watching while visiting family.
Rubio’s was the most reasonable and most likely to gain acceptance that I’ve heard.
1. Control border
2. Grant illegals green cards.
3. Deport/imprison any criminal aliens (crimes other than illegal status itself.)
4. Require any future naturalization filings to be behind those already in line who are legally filing.
5. (Unsure of memory on this one) Require interspersing with legal applicants rather than overwhelming of year groups.
I don’t consider that a bad plan, and especially if the alternative is to continue as we currently are, which I think is the actual desire of many politicians and businessmen.
Fox has also gone over to the gun-bashers side as well, with virtually universal support of “Common Sense Gun Laws”.
Are you referring to Judge Andrew Napolitano?
Is he no longer with FNC?
Any legislation that legalizes the status of those who broke our laws by entering our country illegally and allows them to stay and work here is amnesty. We must not only prevent the Democrats and some moderate Republicans from hijacking the meaning of the word amnesty, but the public must be made aware about the true impact of an amnesty. The Heritage Foundation concluded that the cost of amnesty would be $2.6 trillion just for increased entitlement program costs for those receiving an amnesty. And the number of additional LEGAL immigrants who would join those who were the recipients of amnesty through chain migration, i.e., family reunification, would approach 70 million over a 20-year period, assuming there are only 12 million illegal aliens. We cannot assimilate such numbers. An amnesty would destroy the United States of America with the stroke of a pen.
President Eisenhower was somehow able to deport almost all of the illegal aliens of his period. Have we changed so much since then? I was born during the waning days of his administration and I’m 52.
Network and cable news is all agenda all the time. If you want the truth, you’re going to have to find it yourself.
There is NO conservative news network. Why do we continue to finance the left? Cancel your cable.
This is the best analysis of immigration I’ve seen. If you have a few minutes check it out...
Yup, no longer watch Fox.
TV is dead, as a far as I am concerned.
Hannity - and his cohorts, led us into RINOmney...who I personally thought was a fine man...but who was in no way prepared to deal with the sludge, sleeze, and obamastuff thrown at him by the Obamadork.
We need a network that’s mean, nasty and lethal - to deal with the most retarded, intellectually inferior, fake, and dishonest piece of excrement ever to infect our White House.
I watched this a few years ago. It is absolutely dismal in the prospects of what immigration, legal immigration, is doing to this country. The influx of illegals makes the problem only worse - much much worse.
Once we have a nation with a high percentage of people who do not respect the law (like our president) and refuse to assimilate into our culture (like speaking English) then this unconstitutional government will be given free reign to just ignore whatever laws get in the way.
We welcome those who come here to contribute and to learn our ways but I have no use whatsoever for scum who come here illegally.
He left out a couple of necessary items: a well guarded WALL, land mines and NO ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS. Bill Mexico for any costs incurred by the U.S. in dealing with illegals (take it out of their foreign aid).
Since so many actually desire NOTHING to be done, some for political reasons and others for low wage menial labor reasons, the desire to have deportation, 2DV, is not going to happen.
I believe they’ll try to blow up Rubio’s plan to keep the status quo, but Rubio’s plan has the possibility of gaining enough support to counter the opposition. There’s no doubt, however, that they’ll blow up the “straight deportation” plan, and that plan has zero political power at this time.
That doesn’t mean you’re plan is wrong — in a fair world, I agree with it — it just means that it isn’t likely, imho.
I haven’t watched any news network or network news in forever it seems
