fox news unfair?

Has fox news lost its way?

It would seem so because in 2000 Fox news became more popular because they were covering the news, that sadly has changed, over time it appears that Fox news may have actually shifted to the left.

Which could be one reason why Glen Beck felt that he needed to leave the network which likely hurt them a great deal, (say what you want but the truth is often hard to deal with)

Is fox news biased and unfair in some of the coverage that they present?

Are they biased in a lot of the coverage because you can be biased because of a lack of coverage just as you can be biased in excessive coverage.

One good example was where two bobble heads, came on and started talking about vacations, taken by two different presidents.

They improperly claimed that one president had taken less vacations, than the other president.

This is an outright lie, that was allegedly put on the air by Fox news, and they never even attempted to point out the obvious flaw in this fairy tale.

Now how is that fair and balanced?

So since Fox news refused allegedly to present a fair story, lets do it here, the bobble heads, said that one president had taken less vacations, however that president has only been in office three years, as compared to eight years and two terms, that just seems like a really horrible way to compare apples with oranges, it was allegedly unfair and not balanced at all.

Yet, allegedly fox news did nothing to dispel that lie that was told allegedly on the air.

Inflation the real truth behind the trash talking

This year my 73 year old mother, who gets precious little from Social Security, was informed in a letter that the cost of milk had not actually gone up, it was not really over 3 dollars a gallon it must be her imagination, she was informed that the cost of gas was really not 2.95 per gallon that it must be just because she is just not up with the way they add things up.

She was told that canned goods are not really 1.89 for soup, no it must be her imagination.

She received a letter from Social Security that stated that by law, the cost of living would increase her small check but that this year as in the year before, there would be no cost of living increase because there is no inflation.   There are reports about how they arrived at these amazing figures by doing some really stupid math, because everyone knows that everything has gone up in some cases inflation (real inflation not the faked numbers of hope and change) but real inflation is around 20 percent higher than last year, everyone that actually takes time to put gas into their tanks, knows this too.

Were not that stupid, yet, for two years in a row, the old among us have to suffer and I would like to understand how that can be the hope and change you voted for?

I want to know how starving the old folks will help in any meaningful way, when they show up in the emergency rooms across the USA because of malnutrition and cold, even frost bite cases.

People this is sick and disgusting, but it is what you voted for, right?

Imagine for a moment, that you are on a fixed income and you cannot afford to buy expensive versions of the groceries, that most people buy, the problem is that for many people higher costs of food is an indication of inflation.

Inflation, you know when prices go up and up and up, well gas is almost 3.00 per gallon, that my friends is inflation.

When I see these goons talk about how there is no inflation I wonder if they can sleep at night knowing that they are liars.

So how much does it cost really, I mean when you add in the size of the product or actually the reduction in the size of the product how much money will it take to buy a
loaf of bread in the new year?

Perhaps more than you think, and less than you imagine.

One may wonder why the media including the much vaunted Fair and Balanced, Fox news has not covered this news story, it makes you wonder about if perhaps they are right and these companies are no longer news companies perhaps they are really just advertising companies.

Here is yet another news item you will not find on Fox news because they apparently have dropped the ball yet again, it is about how high inflation actually is and you know what even Glenn Beck missed this story, but hey perhaps he will read it here and take up the story.

Here is the deal, the hidden costs associated with inflation is all about what you dont see and it is all about what you no longer are getting.

Want to know what that is?

Simple, it is the product, that you are no longer getting.

This is something that has been going on quietly for three years, the reduction in product equals inflation then they started going up on the prices of these items, so that really increases inflation.

So the next time someone tries to tell you that there is no inflation, let them know your no dummy.

For example, lets take a cup of yogurt, three years ago in 2007 on average a cup of yogurt was 8 oz and the cost was around 40 cents, per cup.

Today you might find a cup of yogurt at 60 cents, ok so lets have a look at this, the first thing you see is that the cost has gone up by 20 cents. However what you do not see at least right away is that the cup of yogurt they are selling you is now a 6 oz cup.

That is a reduction in product, which means that not only are you paying more for the yogurt you get but you are paying for yogurt that you do not get.

See the problem, here, Now I was never real good at math, so I dont know the exact algebra to get this right but I am going to say that in this instance it is close to a 40 percent increase.

40 percent.

So now do you see how this is really bad for the economy?

What I do not understand here is how Fox and Glen Beck missed this story.

So the idea that there is no inflation, is just well it is a lie, it is a false hood.

We have lots of inflation, you may not notice it as much but it is just as real as real gets.
