FOX NEWS INSIDER SAYS THINGS ARE JUST MADE UP AT THAT STATION!

Image


BY ERIC BOEHLERT


Asked what most viewers and observers of Fox News would be surprised to learn about the controversial cable channel, a former insider from the world of Rupert Murdoch was quick with a response: “I don’t think people would believe it’s as concocted as it is; that stuff is just made up.”

Indeed, a former Fox News employee who recently agreed to talk with Media Matters confirmed what critics have been saying for years about Murdoch’s cable channel. Namely, that Fox News is run as a purely partisan operation, virtually every news story is actively spun by the staff, its primary goal is to prop up Republicans and knock down Democrats, and that staffers at Fox News routinely operate without the slightest regard for fairness or fact checking.

I STILL, can't get over O'Reilly's comment to "NoBama," on Superbowl Sunday...

"Mr. president, you know that you're hated by a lot of Americans."

If anyone seriously doubts, that O'Reilly is NOT, playing "pocket pool" with Mr. Murdock's pool stick, then I have my little Ford Festiva up for sale, and that lil" s.o.b, produces over 450 horsepower!!

Now really O'Reilly, who the f**k, would have the foolishness, to make an assinine comment such as that, if one didn't have an all out hatred toward Democrats!!

You are such a fricken' punk!! :blackeye: :blackeye: :blackeye:

Torture May Have Slowed Hunt For Bin Laden, Not Hastened It

I was a bit amazed when Dick Cheney and Karl Rove and others quickly came out and tried to crow about how their "enhanced" methods of interrogation had been the main reason OBL had finally been caught and killed. What a foolish claim to make...especially now that it's being shown that their illegal methods probably slowed the whole process down! Maybe that had been their intention in the first place, but they certainly wanted to be "on the record." :o War criminals crowing about the death of another war criminal... :drunken:



Torture apologists are reaching precisely the wrong conclusion from the back-story of the hunt for Osama bin Laden, say experienced interrogators and intelligence professionals.

Defenders of the Bush administration’s interrogation policies have claimed vindication from reports that bin Laden was tracked down in small part due to information received from brutalized detainees some six to eight years ago.

But that sequence of events -- even if true -- doesn’t demonstrate the effectiveness of torture, these experts say. Rather, it indicates bin Laden could have been caught much earlier had those detainees been interrogated properly.

"I think that without a doubt, torture and enhanced interrogation techniques slowed down the hunt for bin Laden," said an Air Force interrogator who goes by the pseudonym Matthew Alexander and located Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, in 2006.

It now appears likely that several detainees had information about a key al Qaeda courier -- information that might have led authorities directly to bin Laden years ago. But subjected to physical and psychological brutality, "they gave us the bare minimum amount of information they could get away with to get the pain to stop, or to mislead us," Alexander told The Huffington Post.

"We know that they didn’t give us everything, because they didn’t provide the real name, or the location, or somebody else who would know that information," he said.

In a 2006 study by the National Defense Intelligence College, trained interrogators found that traditional, rapport-based interviewing approaches are extremely effective with even the most hardened detainees, whereas coercion consistently builds resistance and resentment.
