No news source is completely credible. You can't be a Half-Thinker by getting your information from one side of an issue just because it agrees with your opinion and stop there. You have to hear both sides and then look at the facts.

Besides, John Stossel is usually pretty fair. (usually) He used to be on ABC until they didn't like his report on Socialized Health Care.

Which reminds me that Obamacare was declared unconstitutional by a federal court (not the Supreme Court) on the basis that the government can't force Americans to buy something.

Are you trying to make the argument that we should in any way trust FOX News?

You can't get your information from FOX because they'll flat out lie to you.

That's terrible logic to not have health insurance, brah. The government can force me to not buy truckloads of marijuana, but it can't force me to buy health insurance. I chuckled quite a bit at this.

In all fairness I haven't watched the videos yet, but when I find the time I will post something slightly more constructive about them.

10 Most Ridiculous Fox News Lies, Creative Edits, and Half-Truths - Spiteful Critic
1.
Kevin Jennings Gets Boost from White House - CBS News

2.
I do believe that Fox news apologized the next day for the misplacement of the statment.

Misquotes and taking quotes out of context are infamous in all news programs.

3.
Obama reaches out to Muslims. There's a news flash. Fox is a little slow on the ball. lol I thought he made that clear already with his constant apologizing to Muslim nations.

4.
Again infamous misquotes.
Like ABC News misquoting Bill Clinton.
What Did Bill Clinton Mean By "We Just Have to Slow Down Our Economy" to Fight Global Warming? - Political Punch

5.


Anyway, you get the picture. All news sources bend twist or just outright lie about the news. That's why you never just believe whatever your read or hear.

Uhh...if you don't understand the difference between forcing someone not to do something and forcing someone to do something, I'm not sure how to explain.
For example, the government can force you not to kill someone, but the government can't force you to kill someone.
