Fox News Bad?

In my opinion, here is a great example of bad journalism:

<<<"I think a lot of people assume that might be some sort of military thing to make me look more commander in chief-like. Ironically, this is an area — foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Senator Clinton or Senator McCain," Obama reportedly said.>>>

Here is the headline:

<<<

Clinton Takes Obama to Task Over Foreign Policy Experience Claim>>>



Where in his quote does he say he has more experience than either of them? He says he understands the world better than they do. I don't know if that is true, but he can make the claim that he was right about the war while they were wrong, which most of the public is in agreement. It is a very different claim. It is Bush league, laughable.

FOX news is not a real news organization. There was a law suit against them a few years ago by a few journalists who got fired for trying to report facts. The judge had ruled in favor of FOX news declaring that it is not illegal to make up news.

In regards to our top candidates world experiences, I am sure that Clinton and McCain both have more then Obama. The problem for Clinton and McCain is that their experience has not produced fruitful results. They both supported going to war with Iraq after being fed Bush propaganda. This war is one of the United States’ top follies ever. McCain continues to support this unjustified action and the other follies of the Bush administration. So my point is that all experience is not equal. In Clinton’s and McCain’s cases, experience is a negative attribute.

I agree Alzaido. But I wonder, how does one define experience? Obama is the only candidate that spend his childhood living in the Muslim world. Does understanding the religion that your enemy adheres to count for something?
