    I'm starting to think every UK publication is a tabloid! The register has been going on and on about UFOs lately; and while I think there's something to UFOs in general, they're a bit TOO enthusiastic for me to take seriously. =P

    Yeah our papers and internet journalism is pretty pathetic usually. Although the BBC is still the best for news overall.

    Oh definitely; there was word of a campaign on this side of the pond just this morning about a petition or movement to get public T.V.s to stop defaulting to FOX all the time. It's propaganda at its worst, I think (fox that is)

    Fox is the worst news station, ugh.
    Don't even get me started.

    Does Fox news pretend to be unbiased then?

    'fair and balanced' is their tag line; but they are anything but... pure multinational-corporationist misinformation and hate-mongering. Some days I can't help but think about how we're repeating certain unfortunate early-to-middle-of-the-last-century histories in this regard.

    I've seen this story a few different places now, pretty sure it's true and not a stunt of some kind. Seems like it could be a real problem if the focal point moves outside the pool area.

    It'd be awesome if it was a publicity stunt, but it's still pretty funny.

    Yes, I saw this yesterday. I didn't stop to read or I would have had the good giggle yesterday.

    As to Fox news, I find such things are best viewed as tools to understand how the propoganda mongers work. Have you ever read a Reader's Digest? That is the most biased dribble I have ever read.
