Re: "We're letting [women] play golf and tennis now--it's out of control"



I think that Fox News is a much better comedy show than Saturday Night Life, it goes:

MadTV >>>>>>>>>> Fox News >> Saturday Night Life



The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I would be a lot funnier, if a lot of people didn´t take FOX NEWS seriously.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

More like pseudo-people.

For the same reason people find racist jokes funny. Don't tell me you've never made a light-humored joke about someone because of their ethnicity/skin color, or even personality.. no need to jump up at the very mention of sexism.

The sad thing about this video is that FOX news is wholly and intrinsically conservative stick up the ass bullshit. It would be funny if it were actually a joke - but unfortunately....

As this is a tennis forum it cannot be expected that insightful germane political postings would grace its threads. As an example this poster apparently from Germany seems to have heard of Fox News Network, and I gather from the quoted reference he deems it out of the mainstream and deplores the fact that Fox News has a significant audience. I think most would agree that Fox News presents a conservative viewpoint in its broadcasts whereas its competitors: CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC and NBC not to mention most of the print media present a liberal viewpoint.

This poster might be interested in discovering that in an annual Gallop polling, 40% of Americans identify themselves as conservatives, 35% identify themselves as moderates and 21% identify themselves as liberals.

Source: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0112/71385.html

Does it not strike this poster as odd that Fox News champions the viewpoint of a plurality of Americans whereas its competitors espouse the viewpoint of the tinier minority group of Americans? It might explain why Fox News trounces CNN and MSBC substantially in ratings and why lots of people take it seriously.

This isn't a place to discuss politics, but

FOX has the most obvious and ridiculous bias of any news media station in the US. Fact. Even though all news stations skew information in some way, FOX is the one with the most obvious agenda.

I’m very cognizant that this forum is for tennis and not a place for political discussion. Still if a poster is going to make a political reference which I find completely wrong I just can’t leave it unanswered. As to your posting; I am willing to concede Fox News presents a conservative bias. I maintain that is the reason it is successful because all of its competitors have a liberal bias. Now if you believe Fox News competitors are balanced enough to give a conservative viewpoint a fair hearing well I suspect I cannot persuade you otherwise. You might though consider reading Bernie Goldberg’s book “Bias” which details chapter and verse the liberal bias clearly evident in the main stream media.

Again as a final point, I recognize this is a tennis forum and I shall refrain from further postings in this thread. If one wishes a political debate I’m happy to oblige in a PM dialogue.

If any of you would actually watch Fox and Friends, you would know that this was a joke. They are always kidding each other.

One might almost say that Fox News is mainstream.

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009
