Praise for FOX News
On March 17, I responded to an opinion letter admonishing the readers to stop watching FOX, claiming the information received was inaccurate and detrimental to our well-being as a nation. I must assume from his comments he prefers to remain with our heads in the sand, depending on the biased alphabet news media to keep us adequately informed. My response was not printed. Thus this second attempt to penetrate the cloak of media protection the Obama administration enjoys.
The writer of the “Kick Fox News” letter (3/12/14) has a short memory if he doesn’t remember the public disrespect dumped upon George W. Bush by the mainstream alphabet news and the Associated Press.
I agree our country is in peril, it is dangerously divided, but don’t blame FOX News, the messenger.
Whether our present occupant of the White House is a “wannabe” tyrant, dictator or emperor, he is definitely not a leader – not in any stretch of one’s imagination. Without the obsequious behavior of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, he is a mere community organizer with a pen, a telephone and an ever present teleprompter.
Russia, however, has a leader. For better or for worse, he is a leader that makes our guy look second rate, weak and fawning. Israel also has an exceptional leader.
Great leaders do not necessarily speak English. An Obama supporter should be asked this simple question: Is your president a shrewd social engineer determined to bring this country to its knees globally? Or is he merely incompetent?
The premise has to be one or the other. The result is the same. We are a country in peril, a country in decline on his watch.
The answer to this perilous problem is good, reliable information. Be informed. Do not “drink anyone’s Kool-Aid.” Pull your head from the sand and help make our leaders – and more importantly, our news sources - accountable. Be concerned that malpractice exists in journalism.
