    And you're welcome for child labor restrictions, the 40 hour work week, SS and Medicare, the right of women and blacks to vote and free bus rides for the blind.

    Sorry for trying to "destroy" your utopian America like that. How rude of us.

    I know. We're such boors for wanting to make life decent for as many people as possible. It's unconscionable.

    Damn. And here I was looking forward to seeing Kimberly Guilfoyle's underwear again.

    We see it everyday here on PH when you guys come on here and parrot the fabricated fake news talking points of the day.

    We have become accustomed to it.
    I just wrote that I have watched it and I think Shep Smith does a good job because I've watched him. Try reading for comprehension.

    We should just start calling it FakesNews.

    Faux News is already pretty well established. Google results for Faux News automatically include Fox News.

    Some of the segments I've seen are so childish. WTH is that 'No Fox Given' segment? That was so infantile I couldn't believe an outlet actually aired it. Although CNN isn't far behind with its commentary blaming Trump for things that he is obviously too stupid to know about.

    'Fox & Friends' is a joke with its pretence at impartiality.

    I still contend that Fox & Friends is the funniest show on the air. You just have to watch it as if it is a spoof of Fox News and not a normal representation of their programming.
