I live in Norway, have identified myself as a political neutral man (what people call “independent“) and have therefor been fascinated by the Americans who claim that Fox News is biased. Knowing little about the US politics and less about American news cast and their ideologies I got this growing curiosity about this “evil channel of biggots“. They call the channel Faux News (or worse) and claim that the channel is making hate speech and basically is the KKK in news form.
When people talk like that, I at once think “brainwashed“, but still if the haters of Faux News is brainwashed they are at least growing in number (whatever that means (legion!)). It seems it´s been concluded that Fox News, whiteout hope or redemption, is the news channels who lie the most about evil stuff.
Now, I would be lying if the only place I got my impression of Fox News was trough the internet. Living in Norway, I of course got to see alot of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (it´s proclaimed Doubleplusgood by our state leader; the all-loving Stoltenberg the second, and his party Norsoc. ALL HAIL NORSOC!) as it is aired many times a day on our state owned channel called (NRK or translated to English; NORSOCK BROADCASTING CORPORATION). Why Jon Steward is such a great comedic genius in Norway is because he quacks like a duck in the right (therefor left) way.
As the argumentative person I am, I began watching Fox News, but living in Norway with American “region blocking” and the Norwegian Social-democratic fog there would be problems. I started to watch Red Eye w/Greg Gutfeld< (after I heard, then read the book “the bible of unspeakable truths” ) by watching clips on youtube and then subscribing to the podcast. To be honest, Red Eye was not as funny as the Daily Show, but the smugness was reduced to a minimum.
But the point is, with the little impression I got from Fox News, I though “This ain´t that bad? What is the problem with this channel?” (which of course is thought-crime in Norway). I also started to watch clips of The O’Reilly Factor on youtube, often with the tittle “O´Reilly is SCARED/OWNED/Taken Down by [the people with the right bellyfeel].“. Sorry to say, I never saw that O’Reilly was taken down, but just met with counter-arguments (the basic building-blocks of a debate) that may or may not have been better.
But O’Reilly is of course an unperson so we should not speak of him. Or at least only in a mocking way. He commits thought-crime everyday, questioning government and what not. When the revolution comes, he will be the first against the wall, after of course the revolution leaders.
Anyway, I got this growing sensation that I was becoming more and more sure that Fox News was not “biased” no matter how many liberal viewers told me FAUX NEWS WAS and “debunked” them. Perhaps I was too becoming BRAINWASHED by the MAN!!!! To ask a philosophical question; can one know when one is being brainwashed?
Due to the stress of my thought-crimes I repented and went to MSNBC.com to confess my wicked thoughts of independence, freedom and liberty without quotations. The first article I found on their page was “Atheist teen forces school to remove prayer from wall after 49 years”
Need I say more?
The MSNBC article had the following unbiased observation of a child’s rage against society. The child was “the daughter of a firefighter and a nurse“. The daughter of a FIREFIGHTER and a NURSE! She “has received online threats and the police have escorted her at school“, so she most be a true hero. The child said “It seemed like it was saying, every time I saw it, ‘You don’t belong here,’ ” she said the other night during an interview at a Starbucks here” so you know she is fighting for the right to be different by removing another seventh-graders prayer. You see, by removing the past, like this wonderful child does, we can change the future. We all learned that from the wonderful instructional manual 1984 by George Orwell. George Orwell was a socialist himself you know, so you know that 1984 was not a critique of state, communism and lefties collective thinking, but of course of RELIGION!!! It´s a guide for people who love HARRY POTTER to remove RELIGION!!!
God, I hate effing teens! Think they know everything!
Never say MSNBC is biased.
So of course MSNBC, NRK etc. are the right channels. They are good against the social-democracy that loves us all. I love MSNBC and I love Stoltenberg the first, second, the future third! I love socialism, and I unlove everything that speaks untruth like FUCKING FAUX NEWS!!!!
