Yeah, that's real earth shattering distortion there ... but the way you were ranting I thought maybe he reported that the pope was a baptist, or something.

Irrational hatred will do that to you ... do your digestion a favor and locate your TV off/on switch/channel changer.

No, it is not earth shattering, but typical. If you think Fox is 'balanced' than maybe that opportunist fat-bastard Michael Moore is unbiased as well?

I suppose it was a plot to save the poor smucks job.....if a DEM he could be re-elected a few times, have a national park named after him and garner various fluff awards.....although it probably was doomed to fail since Foley didn't have actual physical relations....unlike Gerry Studds.
Incidentally as examples of NEWS manipulation go that is a pretty lame attempt

If I have offended your heros at Fox, I am sorry. If you don't see the bias in Fox's Fair and Balanced reporting, then their broadcasts are obviously suitable for your consumption. The rest of us, those with our heads OUT of our asses, will look for other sources.
And as to labelling my posts gobbledegook, that's okay too, a colouring book version will be coming out soon so you can 'get' it too.

I'll be looking forward to the colouring book version although I didn't label your "posts" as gobbledygook but rather much of one post......Incidentally I'm no fan of any TV news FOX or otherwise....I may leave it on if doing something else in either the kitchen or the shop but to actually sit down and watch it virtually never......The time required Vs the information content compared to reading is quite unfavorable. But when I hear what I feel are empty or false tirades about FOX, Walmart etc. I just can't help myself from wading in<g>......Since I don't perceive any relevant FOX news bias (ignoring the commentators on either side) when I ask for examples I'm quite sincere.....And I'm yet to see anybody present a credible case......Rod

Hmm... when was the last time you saw, say Howard Zinn on any of these channels? The discussion has moved so far right that viewpoints such as these are not even acknowledged, yet how many military generals, etc., were interviewed prior to the war? In fact, how many were/are actually in their employ?
You are very naive if you think you are getting fair and balanced news from any of the networks, IMHO. If you have a hard time noticing FOX news bias, you have a very narrow view of what is news.
JMHO...

Yeah hard on the "left" news because it is not far enough left. Have you actually read the criticisms of Fox News coverage on that web page? The conclusions are pre-drawn (Bush's AWOL status), the victims and perpetrators pre-assumed (Israel the agressor, Palestinians victims). If you are looking for a site to discuss media "balance" -- that one ain't it.
Try www.newsbusters.org , it will give you a view from the other side.

If you can't see the difference between news reporting and commentary shows, then See BS and Crescent News Network will work just fine for you.

Somebody disagrees with your worldview, thus, by definition they must be ignorant morons. How positively enlightened.

If you're going to sling mud with satirical names you might as well be fair (and balanced) by applying the appropriate moniker to Faux News.

It's *got* to be more troops then we're hearing about, too... unless they're just grinding up military vehicles for fun over there, and letting the soldiers go.
The orders for computer and antenna mounts for military applications have increased dramatically in the past six months. Where we were making orders of 100-500 every couple of weeks, we're now making and shipping several thousand full sets each week. Unless they're building up for yet another war, we're wasting an awful lot of rolling stock over there. Seems fair enough to assume that *someone* is driving those trucks when they get totaled.

Not likely at all......there is no political gain to be had for under reporting.....an oft cited complaint from the "anti Iraq war for any reason crowd" has been not enough troops......Why they would want "more targets" and why they wouldn't want the Iraq's themselves to assume their own security is another argument in itself.

Your observation reminds me of a long ago story.....as Nixon drew the Vietnam troops from around 550,000 to nearly 125,000 this guy I argued with just knew it was all a lie because he had seen more troops landing in Vietnam than had been shipping out....personal observation is fraught with error (history readily proves the guy was wrong) . If you understood military procurement, after our troops are finally home you will find warehouses full of many "must have today" products including yours......Rod

If you understood

If you understood military procurement you would be institutionalized.
I think the little Iraqi hoodlums are breaking the antennas off and "tagging" the vehicles with spray paint. A behavior resulting from a "cultural" import of Z-movies.

Well, I hope that's the case- I'd rather be making things to sit in a warehouse than to get blown apart as fast as they can be installed.

A quick sanity check would indicate that there is no way the military could be buying several thousand HMMWV's weekly. As others have pointed out, most likely these are the kinds of things easily damaged either deliberately or in the normal activities in a war zone. Not farfetched to realize that a vehicle doesn't have to be totaled to require antenna or computer mount repairs.
