Without reading any of the garbage, I wonder why the main stream media, who is only really concerned with ratings, would not want to run these stories?

Because they're ran by globalist douche bags, who know that reporting on American Idol and Bristol Palin is more entertaining....and sure enough people eat it up.

Well, it's true.

 Same reason reality TV has taken over pretty much every channel. There's more money in that than something you can actually learn from. I mean, even History and Discovery have bought into it.

JFC.

Reality TV is cheaper than a sitcom.  Period.  Also, it's not like pre reality TV programing was educational.

What does reality TV being cheaper than a sitcom have to do with what I'm saying? I'm saying it makes a crap load of money, which is why everyone has migrated towards it....leaving behind anything thought provoking or educational, which yes did exist before the pre-reality era.

So the globalists are cool w/ reporting on some controversial things, just not all of them?

I don't get it.
Where did you get that overnight bag?

Not really.  Did you pick up all your social cues from Friends or Seinfeld?  No.

Well yeah I guess. If you want to mention Afghanistan in between the Kardashians and Ozzy Osbourne, and still keep people in the dark about the over 4 wars were fighting, then why not.

Not that I'd ever rely on any 3 of these for "breaking news" or w/e...but if Fox is the most accurate, albeit ~40% clip, we're so beyond mumped it doesn't matter anyway   :goodbyecruelworld:

No, they didn't say Fox was the most accurate.  They said their viewers were more 'informed'.  That simply means that they can regurgitate more facts.

I'm not surprised.  A lot of folks that watch Fox shows are religious in their devotion to the channel and the time slot.  Most of my family members that watch Fox News have it on in the background nearly three or four hours a day.  While I, conversely, watch an hour of Anderson Cooper and call it good*.

*Except on the weekends when I watch Meet the Press, State of the Union, and GPS.

He has a point with the history channel. That channel is nothing but reality tv and alien shows now.
