You might want to check a few more sources before you go on your rants about foxnews. Check out what MSNBC reported about the actual book signings. Even Obama has done an interview on Foxnews recently. Really, you might want to lighten up a little.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXKuDYvM6Wk

Watch how MSNBC tries to trip up her supporters and puts her in the light of a celebrity and not a political figure. Sarah really needs to join the CFR team and these attacks would become cheers. If she really wants a chance to win, she knows what she has to do. I love how at the end of the report she slams Palins supporters as not being specific on the issues? If Foxnews is partisan then what is MSNBC? Fair and balanced? Kettle meet pot, pot meet kettle.

Nothing Rupert Murdoch owns is about being fair and balanced. Rupert Murdoch is a political power crazed d-bag.

By the way, speaking of Palin, in between commercials of WWII in HD, I came across her on Hannity last night. I had that same feeling I get when I watch American Idol or Dancing With the Stars, embarrassment for everyone involved.

Damn, did I just admit to watching those two shows? Itís really because the warden (my wife) watches them. I swear.

The fact she'd even seriously consider Glenn Beck as a potential running mate for the highest office in the land tells me that too many people are watching reality shows that glorify stuipd. What is this country coming to?

As I said before, I am of the firm opinion that they ALL lie......

Al Gore Photoshops Hurricanes Into New Book's Cover
By Noel Sheppard (Bio | Archive)
November 19, 2009 - 14:54 ET

UPDATE AT END OF POST: Gore prominently quotes Deuteronomy, "Iím offering you the choice of life or death."

The cover of Nobel Laureate Al Gore's new book "Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis" was intentionally doctored to exaggerate the appearance of hurricanes in the northern hemisphere as well as reduce the amount of ice present in the Arctic.

Maybe even more ominously, Florida was so diminished it's almost totally gone.

As reported by Florida State University hurricane expert Ryan Maue at the website Watts Up With That, the truth was apparently inconvenient for the Global Warmingist-in-Chief (h/t NBer Blonde):

The cover opens and closes half and half - so you only see one hurricane...as in the press release photo or the one on Amazon.

But this is the real picture sequence from the book which I looked at Borders today and took cell-phone pictures, original (before the retouching by some "artist") Note all of the Arctic ice and the size of the Florida Peninsula...



According to Maue, this is the full, unfolded cover:



Hey! Where'd Florida go?

With hurricane activity at 30-year lows, and Arctic ice levels on the rise, I guess Gore and Company figured they needed some help proving their point.

*****Update: NBer Dim Bulb humorously pointed out in the comments section that Gore might be eliminating Florida in this picture to exact revenge for 2000's recount debacle.

*****Update II: It gets even scarier. On Wednesday, Tom Nelson reported:

On a page by itself, we find this inside the front cover of Al Goreís latest climate fraud promotion book:

Iím offering you the choice of life or death. You can choose either blessings or curses. Ė Deuteronomy Chapter 30, Verse 19

Ryan Maue confirmed this by phone moments ago, and sent this picture.

So Al Gore believes he's offering the world a choice between life and death.

Maybe they'll give him another Nobel Peace Prize for such sentiments.

Forgive me if previously posted, but I don't think we should be crucifying Fox specifically, unless we're ready to throw MSNBC and other news outlets under the bus. Or, does the burden for factual reporting only apply to the news source that the left associates with the right?

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2009/11/13/msnbc-uses-fake-sexy -photos-sarah-palin-air-will-network-correct-apo


Like I just said, I believe they all lie... Politicians, news sources, etc... It's all about getting the American people to buy into their agenda.


Mike

Yes... The links that I posted are from a "news source" which proposes to expose "medial liberal" biases. While this may be their claim, it doesn't make the stories I posted any less true or accurate.

They used it and commented along the lines of 'lookit the crowd for Palins book!' They have since apologized (again) for doing this.

Either FOX is a network of liars or they're completely inept....either way it isn't looking good for the people involved.

Oh come on Steve, at least get the quote right!

" These are some of the pictures coming in to us. There's a crowd of folks."

Seems to me he was expecting to see photos of the people lined up, and saw the campaign footage, and his voice had a decidedly "Oh no, not again." tone to it.

I have a feeling there will be a job opening for a video engineer at Fox.

What did they expect? It's not like they're the first people she let down. I'd put John McCain at the head of that list just for starters. Anyone who waits all day in bad weather just to get her autograph on a book she didn't even write.....well.....you know the saying about coming in out of the rain.

There is a land mass in the Atlantic with is the Lost Continent of Atlantis. When that land mass rises up out of the water (which is will do, because if the activcity on the ocean floor and movement of the tectonic plates), the amount of water it displaces from the ocean will flood places like Florida which will mostly if not be completely underwater.
