LOL - True, but minus the laughter.

Humor is the only test of gravity, and gravity of humor; for a subject which will not bear raillery is suspicious, and a jest which will not bear serious examination is false wit.

Does this mean that a one-liner and a sit-com will fall at the same speed in a vacuum? And if we discover a way to make artificial gravity, will we also make artificial humor?

Inquiring minds want to know. Closed minds want to no.

Of course Fox 'spins'. As do ALL of the other US 'Big Media' news outlets, and many of the foreign ones do it as well. Fox and a small number of others 'spin' the news to the right... Most spin it to the left.

I may be a right-wing conservative (mostly), but I get just as sick watching Fox News as I do watching CNN (Commie News Network). I can't stand spin. You newsguys out there: just tell me what happened today, in as fair and unbiased a manner possible. I will do my own interpretation, thank-you-very-much. Keep all your op-ed sh** the heck out of the 'News'!

I used to watch Fox and CNN because I thought they were funny. Then I found out they were trying to be serious. Now I just watch MSNBC because it's fairly well balanced.

CNN = Commie News Network? Have I missed something? I rather wouldn't say that THEY are left-wing...

Just about anything that is considered Un-american is labeled as Commie. I, for example, am considered a Commie because I like the idea of a national health care system. What most folks fail to realize is that the system is only as good as the people who run it. There has never been a truly communist government.

Actually the left-wing gets in on the fun also. They can be just as close-minded, if not more so, than the right-wing.

Well, CNN still leans a little to the left. The ONE good thing about Fox News is that they forced CNN to move towards the center somewhat. CNN used to be VERY leftist, especially back in the "Hanoi Jane was Ted Turner's wife" days.

Just a thought. Do we have a Baghdad Jane for the Iraq war? Any suggestions?
