Fox has deliberately set itself apart from other news media. Starting at the top with Roger Ailes, the Fox sales pitch has been to deride other media, to declare itself the one source of the real truth, the sole source of fair and accurate news reporting. As a result, theres not a reservoir of kinship or good will with Fox on the part of the rest of the news media. You cant keep insulting people and then expect friendship when you need it.
Theyve made it a policy to keep a distance between themselves and the rest of the media, far beyond the usual competitive spirit, so thats where they are: at a distance.
So you mean I was right to make the snide comment a week ago that no one would care because the journalist was from Fox? I thought I was being overly snarky, but I guess life is stranger than parody.
I'm with Cold Fury:
So howzabout we make a little deal: since you and your liberal-media playmates find yourselves unable to muster enough patriotic spirit or, for that matter, simple human decency to bother concerning yourselves about the fate of a couple of fellow American journalists because their politics may not mesh with your own, from here on out, American soldiers (the overwhelming majority of whom violently disagree with your politics, which I think we can safely infer from your snide and heartless comment) will no longer be expected to go out and rescue your sorry, worthless asses when the terrorists youre so busy propagandizing for get tired of putting up with your ass-kissing sycophancy and decide youd be more useful as hostages instead.
In other words, if partisan politics means that much to you liberal-media jackholes, and youre that closed-minded that you cant even rise above your own petty liberal dogma to scrape up a plugged nickels worth of fellow-feeling for your American colleagues no matter who they work (or voted) for, then you have no right to expect any when you find yourself caught in a steel-jawed Islamist trap of your own devising.
If the North Kosanese getcha, don't expect any help from your "countrymen"...
