DUmmie Fears Fox News Rays

My mind must NOT be exposed to contrary views. All news must be purged of conservative thought. I will only watch or listen to news that already affirm my ingrained outlook. All opinion that differs from mine must be purged from the media. I never listen to Rush Limbaugh but I know third hand what he says. Fox News dares to include the conservative point of view which is why I am worried that the evil rays from that network might infect my brain. Such is the mindset of the DUmmies as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Fox News was on the tube when I went in for a Dr.'s appointment." So let us now read the sad tale in Bolshevik Red of a poor widdle DUmmie who had his tiny mind exposed to another POV for a few moments in a doctor's waiting room while the commentary of your humble correspondent, whose blog depends on constantly being exposed to DUmmie thought, is in the [brackets]:

Fox News was on the tube when I went in for a Dr.'s appointment.

[Call out the EMT! This poor DUmmie was infected by contrary thoughts which must now be cleansed from his tiny mind.]

I was already in a bad mood. This was a new doctor's office for me, and I didn't know what to expect. I was the only one in the office as this was early morning. Right away, I saw that their big plasma screen in the state-of-the-art waiting room was tuned to Fox "News." Low-brow propaganda was flooding the room.

[Break out the HazMat suit. Those Fox News rays were infecting me.]

Usually when I see Fox News somewhere, it isn't only me in the room. But this time I was by myself, and there were no dimwits around to soak up the "dumb rays." I was taking a full dose.

[I was helpless. No fellow liberals to get my mind right and protect me from the EVIL thought rays.]

So I introduced myself as a new patient and asked the receptionist if she could please switch the TV to a "news channel." She laughed a little nervously and handed me a couple of forms to read. I scanned her for telltale signs of in-breeding. Normal, I thought, although I hadn't seen her fingernails.

[We now know that this DUmmie was in the doctor's office in order to get a massive chip removed from his shoulder.]

I sat down to read the forms, but the Fox News "content" continued. When I returned the forms I said, "Seriously, can we change the channel? I find this channel deeply insulting to my intelligence."

[Seriously, I find this channel deeply insulting to my in-bred lack of intelligence.]

She seemed surprised, but to my disappointment, un-offended. She said (roughly), "OK, I understand. But if you could just have a seat, you'll be in to see the doctor in about a minute anyway."

[You were disppointed that the receptionist wasn't offended? Now we know you were looking for a fight. That doctor must have had quite a task with that massive chip on your shoulder.]

I wavered and started to head back to my seat, but had to stop. "You know," I said, "Let's just cancel the appointment." But as I said it, I noticed that she had already grabbed the remote and started to change the channel--which she did.

[Did you check the table to see if there were any National Review magazines there? Another reason to cancel the appointment.]

I thanked her and went in for the appointment. I was conscious the whole time, so I'm pretty sure they didn't do anything to me. Fox News was still off when I left.

[A small victory in the battle for mindlessness. And now to hear from the other DUmmies purging themselves of contrary opinions...]

good for you! I did that once when I was waiting for my car to be fixed. They changed it.

[Must not]

happened to me as well when I was waiting for an oil
change & inspection. I loitered outside as much as I could, but it was a very hot day. It also happened to be a live broadcast of the last Republican debate. When my car was near completion, one guy piped up and said that he had never voted a Democrat in his life, but if Joe Liebermann was the Dem nominee, he'd vote for him. I will never take my car there again.

[I will never patronize an establishment that caters to anybody who doesn't agree with me.]

My dentist has it on sometimes. Too bad that I like his service...though to find decent ones. I demand that he changes it with exactly the same tone...

[The tone of a self-righteous liberal with a massive chip on his shoulder.]

I got up in front of six people and changed the channel to CNN inside a waiting area while I was waiting to have four new tires put on my car. I was like, hell no. It's painful enough forking out $500 for new tires, without having to sit through the shit that was on Fox.

[Everyone MUST be exposed to the same liberal drivel that I watch.]

Local Macy's has a tv-enhanced waiting area by the dressing rooms.They started showing Fox...After several trips to the store I asked a nearby sales clerk if it could be changed or if this was a new requirement. She didn't understand my problem and said no one else had complained. As politely as I could I said that Fox was propaganda, not news, and that it really bothers me--but if this is some kind of corporate statement from the management of Macy's, I understand that she is not at liberty to change the channel. On the other hand, I said, it used to be tuned to CNN, so could it please be changed back. It's one of those sets that hangs close to the ceiling or I would have tried changing the channel myself. We left on good terms, I think, and on subsequent shopping trips I noticed that we have CNN back. I was, however, prepared to phone the store manager and ask if showing Fox was now an actual policy for Macy's.

[Your next Mindless Mission is to make sure the Macy's floor models of the TV sets on sale never have Fox News on them even for a second.]

I quit my gym about a year ago over this... They had a bank of about 16 tv's in the treadmill/bike area tuned to four different channels: Fox News, ESPN, MTV and local cable news/weather. I asked if they would at least put one of the tv's on CNN or MSNBC. The counter person said he couldn't do it. I asked if I could reach up and change the channel. He replied, "Oh, We have the remote control at the desk here, but we have been instructed no to change the channels." As I said, (and for a couple other reasons related to the cleanliness of the place) I cancelled my memberhship.

[Then you switched to a bath house type gym where LOGO is the channel of choice.]

I used to turn off the Fox "News" TV in the workout club. I eventually quit going to that club partially because 3 of the TV's were on Fox content. It's nice to hear that other people are highly irritated by the Fox propaganda. I get very loud and start insulting Fox and right-wingers wherever I have to be subjected to their (Fox's) mindless right-wing propaganda.

[GASP! How dare others CHOOSE to watch Fox News.]

Good on you - here is how it went down for me. I complained after polling the waiting room to see if anyone was watching it. I said I personally did not want to hear it since it was discounting my intelligence and fed me inaccurate news biased toward the Bush administration. They said they were not watching. I told that to the receptionist who claimed she was not able to change the channel of turn it off. I asked to be put in a different room to wait. I said I was thanking her in advance, smiled sweetly, and stood in front of her til they put me in an unattended side room.

[That unattended side room to which you demanded to be quarantined is also known as the Rubber Room.]

The great thing about these people is that they have a NEED to tell you why they want the channel changed. If I would rather watch the Golf Channel than CNN when my oil is being changed, I ask any other patrons if they mind. Nobody ever does, and I didn't even have to bring up my views on anything (other than golf), or berate the establishment for not blocking CNN from its TV.

I suspect that most, if not all, of the posts are BS since they all seem to follow the same script: DUmmie sees an injustice (Fox News, in this case), DUmmie takes control to eliminate the injustice (also known as throwing a tantrum), DUmmie prevails and justice is restored!

Posts like these are really just projections as they reflect the DUmmie's inability to affect changes in their own lives and are used to alleviate some of the desperation that is felt by the powerless DUmmies.

The DUmmies are always being offended by something: Fox News, Bush, Rush, Rove, O'Reilly, bumper stickers, whatever.

And when a DUmmie is offended the first thing they do is run to their computers to tell fellow DUmmies how they were offended and how they resolved the offense in their favor.

98.5% of what they say is bullshit, the rest is delusional.

Nothing but a bunch of pompous, arrogant, pretenious leftards all slapping each others backs and telling each other how 'brave' they are in standing up against the evil Fox News channel.

Dude! This is just scary.

Imagine going through life afraid of anything that you don't already agree with.

This is just pitiable.

They're actually fascists. They've actually adopted Orwellian ideas ... while insisting that its the rest of the planet that's Orwellian.

It's just scary. And sad.

And yeah ... every one of those "I stood up against injustice!" stories is fiction. You know it is. They sat there, fumed and pouted, and then sat down and wrote stories about what they WISH they'd done.

I wonder how much FoxNews ratings are boosted by people who watch it SPECIFICALLY to annoy these loons?

I don't care much one way or another, but you can bet if I owned a body shop - I'd have the TV fixed permanently to FoxNews, if only because its so damn funny to see people who are literally unable to deal with actual diversity of ideas.

I have bad news for these DUmmies... An actual non-partisan entity declared FOX more balanced then the "competition":

We knew that already, but it will make most of these lunatics cry about their perceived injustices all the louder...
while typing...
on a keyboard.

Here's the MUCH more likely scenario that happened:

"I saw my doctor had FOX news on. I demanded they change the channel immediately!... Then some neocon told me not to be rude and to sit my ass back down or he'd make me swallow teeth. I sat back down, but I felt a certain smugness that I had spoken truth to power."

THAT is how it happened, guaranteed.

They keep saying that Fox 'discounts their intelligence.' Does anyone know how this is possible? I mean, really, there is so little intelligence on display there it would be incredibly difficult to discount it to any real extent.

I'm guessing they're just not smart enough to handle opposing views and get all tense and nervous when they don't know what to do. Probably got their safety helmets on backwards, too.

This seems like a bunch of BS. Most Dr's offices charge you a fee if you cancel an appointment less then 24 hrs before its scheduled. So if she cancelled the appoinment 2 mins before she would be charged a cancellation fee most likely.

Its possible the receptionist changed the channel to shut the moonbat up. she's working its not like she cares what's on. The TV is for the patients.

Either way how assinine to act like that cuz your too sceered to watch FOX. Cuz they dare to give both sides of the story. I don't watch FOX all that much myself..they have just as many Dims on as Repukes. But I understand how its considered a right wing channel by the libtards, cuz only 80% of Fox staff voted for Kerry as opposed to 90%+ at the BS networks.

What those poor misfits don't get , is that in commercial places it is fairly common for a channel to contract with the owner to have their channel on instead of others. Think of it like product placement payments for the best shelf space or end of row displays in a grocery store.

Those decisions don't just happen and the manager just pulls it out of his a$$.

I wonder what these anti-American guttersnipe nutjobs do when they wind up in an airport that has FOX News Kiosks or stores. I was in an airport with such places earlier this year, and didn't see any of them protesting or howling like rabid dogs, so I have to wonder if they really do have the courage they are claiming to have.

I'm betting the ranch they don't.

These people are lucky. I once had to watch the DISNEY CHANNEL while waiting at a quick clinic. (must... destroy... laugh track) I waited till the little girl who was apparently enjoying Hannah Montana left and then went to the desk and literally begged someone there to change the channel to ANYTHING.

I was given the remote and flipped around till I found a science channel doing a report on Jupiter [the planet]. Figured that'd be the least offensive to everyone. (btw, did you know that Jupiter acts as the solar system's "big brother" and protects life on earth from a lot of debris that would kill us all?)

HILARIOUS. I can't stand the Communist News Network, either. As long as the media was thoroughly dominated with characters and viewpoints the DU moonbats could agree with, all was well in lala land. When Fox News showed up and became an outlet for the other side (patriotism, pro-U.S./pro-military) of the political spectrum, their panties twisted into a huge wad.
When the Huffpo/Wapo/DU asshats have fits, that means we’re doing our jobs.

Yeah, that study was very interesting, and confirms a long held opinion of mine: That the reason Fox is perceived as a right wing channel is because it is right wing only in comparison to all the other news networks.

When all the news channels are clustered over in left wing socialist territory, then the centrist one will seem right wing.

Once again, "Bolshevik Red". This somehow has something to do with Fox News or the people that don't watch Fox News or the people that hate Fox News or the people that love Fox News or something. OK. I'm down, Bro.

Well, yeah. When compared to other networks Fox is seen as right wing. Big surprise, britt. You seem to be suggesting it's not right wing. That perception qualifies you Sorry.

Oh trogalman, you try so hard. It's like watching a dog with a paper cone around his neck try to scratch himself.

FoxNews is right wing compared to CNN or CBS. That does not make them right wing in absolute terms. For example, if I was to give you a choice between FDR, Stalin, and Mao, then FDR is the most right wing of those (by a little bit at least). That does not mean that FDR is a right winger, it means that he is the most right wing of the set.

Were my words too big? Do you need me to draw you a picture?

Like you know what the 'absolutes' are, you moron.

So Fox News, when held to the 'absolutes' known only by the likes of britt, isn't right wing. No. It's more like the word of God. You can take it to the bank.

Oh britt. You're like a starving lemming scratching and clawing to get to the head of the line and plunge happily over the cliff. So sad. Such a waste of a good and absolute mind.

Let's try a little experiment. Walk up to your friends and associates and ask "Fox News - left or right?" and see what they say. I know the average Joe isn't tuned-in to the 'absolutes' like you are, but give it a try.

OK Trog, I'll bite. If everyone other than Fox would just admit that their obvious bias, I would gladly ring the bells proclaiming Fox's right-wingedness. Ask Dan Rather how he could remain objective reporting about Republicans or Democrats while speaking at Democrat Party fundraisers.

Everyone "other than Fox" must admit their bias? What a good idea!! That's certainly fair. Everyone BUT Fox must admit their obvious bias then you'll "ring the bells". Super.

You drive a hard bargain, John F Not Kerry. Never mind that my pet yak knows you're full of shit. Yaks can sense that sort of thing. Heightened sense of smell, I think.

How 'bout this? When every news network, except CNN of course, admits to their obvious bias, I, troglaman, will ring the bells of freedom and Intelligent Design.

The Des Moines Register as centrist? Puhleeze!

Hey, it at least gives you a frame of reference for debates.

So for example, if you think it's more left leaning, then shift everything degrees to the left and reexamine.

Visa versa for right.

Though I do wonder how recently he's updated it because MSNBC should go several octaves higher than CNN (at the very least) if you ask me.
