Was Jeff Carr taken by the rapture at the end of that interview? What happened there?

I was wondering the same thing. I hope not or we’re all screwed.

I don’t know why, but the cutout with one minute left was hilarious. I have to say… Hannity is a talking head with no depth, but Carr and Winkler do sound rather naive… a la Neville Chamberlain… Though, Winkler’s “trust but verify” was a little reassuring.

I hate the shout-show format in general. I miss the Capital Gang, which actually allowed guests to talk, and then asked credible questions. And then they would talk and listen to each other. Alas, it was cancelled so CNN could cram more Anderson Cooper down our throats.

Having watched and read about FOX news I don’t watch it and don’t want to talk about it. As a consumer I’m trying to make them go away. Good Luck butch This is more than I want to give them.

Heh. Unfortunately I don’t see it going away. Besides, it’s a nice American version of the Guardian — the kinda news source where you can get your own version of the news for the great bouts of political brilliance at the water cooler.

Mark, Guardian writers don’t shout. They entertain. They ridicule their opponents rather than subjecting them to verbal bashing. And they come from quite a wide range of ideological standpoints. Often they argue a case. Sometimes they analyse quite perceptively. So, actually, there’s no similarity at all. Sorry to be a spoilsport Mark

It’s similar in that you’re not reading a news source that strives to be objective — you’re definitely reading a skew. The biggest example of this massive agenda skew was the illegal alien walk out last year… though still big, it was considered a marked failure by organizers, receiving 1/5 to 1/2 of expected numbers in most major American cities. Virtually every news source reported it as such — largely futile and largely a failure — except the Guardian, where it trumpeted it as a raging success destined to change the American political landscape. It was just silly. Ridicule -v- verbal bashing? Obviously the Guardian isn’t 100% bad and sometimes they have good stuff, but the same applies for FOX News.

I certianly hope Jeff and others who attended the conference in Iran are able to find a more objective news, (real news..not the opinionated political stage of Fox),venue to report on their findings. I find this video annoying in the least, and frustrating when the guests are constantly interupted, challenged and accused of either being duped or telling outright lies. Having visited Iran in recent years I am anxious to see and hear visitors there from the US have the opportunity to report on the true state of affairs instead of the demonizing tiatribe from our present leaders and media.

I watched this clip, and saw what I expected. Faux news screws news. The introduction referred to the “rogue State” among other slurs setting the tone. And downhill from there. Too bad these gentlemen could not have done this on a real news network. The best thing the US could do is completely boycott FOX and all The companies who advertise there. It would be a better World

Why I Work for Immigration Reform (by Patty Kupfer)
When I tell people that I work on immigration reform, they usually laugh or say, "way to pick an easy topic." Everyday it feels like there is more fear, more hate. Raids are picking up in Nevada, California, and New York. A number of senators who supported comprehensive reform only a few months ago

Verse of the Day: 'peace to the far and the near'
I have seen their ways, but I will heal them; I will lead them and repay them with comfort, creating for their mourners the fruit of the lips. Peace, peace, to the far and the near, says the Lord; and I will heal them. But the wicked are like the tossing sea that cannot keep still; its waters toss u
