Koppel: "Bill what is it you think I have said about the network, or written about the network?"
O'Reilly: "You think that we have corrupted the sanctity of fair news coverage."
But I would go further. I think that Fox News has virtually destroyed journalism in this country.
I also think that they are the SOLE reason that we had George W. Bush, and therefore TWO completely unnecessary wars, which cost thousands of American lives, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and Afghan lives.
(Remember the 2000 election was called a Gore win by NBC and MSNBC first, which was then followed by the other networks, including Fox. That is until Fox got a call from their corporate masters and suddenly changed their minds and decided that Bush had won, which essentially called the election results into question until the Supreme Court called it in Bush's favor. In truth Gore most likely won that state, and if Fox had not made their erroneous claim, which sent over 20,0000 voters home without voting since they believed their candidate had lost, he ABSOLUTELY would have won.)
Fox News also almost single handily started the Tea party movement which is now causing unbelievable gridlock in the American political system, essentially derailing it from within.
And then of course there's Sarah Palin. Need I say more?
So yes Fox News is indeed "bad for America" in fact I think they are guilty of treason and that both Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch should be led in front of a firing squad and executed.
But hey, that's just me.
