canadian broadcasting channel talks smack about fox news
    #3700653 - 01/30/05 02:12 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I heard about this, but I kind of want to see a transcript of what happened. Can anyone direct me to some links... if you know what I'm talking about.

The CBC? On the news, or where?

There was a TV columnist in the Globe and Mail about a year ago where the guy made fun of Fox, and was eventually invited to go on Bill O'Reilly's show.

It wouldn't surprise me...although I doubt it was from an actual 'news' broadcast. We have alot of political satire shows here. "This hour has 22 minutes" "Royal Canadian Air Farce" " Rick Mercers monday report" (my fave...it's basically the equivalent of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart) If it did happen, I suspect it happened on his show...he is very good at making Americans appear stupid.

Outfoxed on TV tommorow, should be good watching.
'some people say'... hehe very credible sources. I love Fox it is just so hillarious how they claim they're news, and Fair and Balanced on top of that!

Unfortunately we don't have Fox here so i only ever see it in short TV snippets that usually criticise it. Would be good to see some unedited Real fox footage, but either way no amount of selective editing could make something look that bad without it really being that bad. I'm reffering specifically to Bill O'Reily, someone should interview him on their own show and then cut his mike, while they're at it throw a pie at that clowns face.

I disagree, no matter how unbiased or biased something is, you can make it appear completely unbiased or completely biased through editing.

I watched it, it was pretty interesting. Ann Coulter made a fool of herself in it.

Well maybe I've only seen the edits of Bill O Reily being a total biased asshole. Perhaps the parts i missed is where he is 'fair and balanced' and doesnt rely on 'some people say' as his sources.

Ok agreed selective editing can sway ones perception of something quite significantly but when i see Bill being a total dickweed in one continuous unedited segment I can be certain he is. It'd be different if every word was obviously cut and pasted into a different arrangement.

Case and point.  Nowhere did I, or Rono, say that Americans are stupid.  The exact quote used was:

"he is very good at making Americans appear stupid"  (bold was added)

... and I am an American, so pttbtbtbtbt.  :grin:

You can't deny that you didn't imply it, what else would it possibly be?

Canada is not particularly filled with scholars ya know.

He was referring to a segment from a show where Rick Mercer used to go to the states, and ask Americans questions with the intent of making them look stupid.

I was referring to Suess' comment, not the show. The implication was there no matter how ignorant it happened to be.

Keep trying, the server hosting the torrent is unreliable at best. It goes up and down all the time.

edit: try this link: http://www2.digitaldistractions.org:8080...0Stones.torrent

FYI-FOX News, while it is an American t.v. channel, is in fact owned and ran by an AUSTRALIAN (even though he is now a U.S. citizen he was born Australian), Rupert Murdoch.

... we have an entire game show that is based around that.. it's called Street Smarts..


yeah, it's not hard to find total idiots if that's what you're setting out to do. It's not hard to find total idiots in ANY country. It's just that it's only funny if they're Americans.
