I feel rather sick. The worst is that these people apparently prefer Fox News and thus have a lot of responsibility for the war....

Wait. Because they watch a particular television channel, they're actually responsible for the war?

I don't watch the news on TV so I don't know if there's some kind of selection bias or if this is actually the case, but- are news anchors really like 90% women, or what? When did being a reporter become a woman's job?

Sigh. Here's how reasonable people would understand such a sentence.

1. People who watch Fox News have overwhelmingly voted Republican and specifically for George W. Bush (verifiable fact).
2. Voting for George Bush almost certainly caused the Iraq War (unprovable but an assumption that seems reasonable to a lot of people.)

Therefore, if you watch Fox News, the chances are that you voted for George W. Bush and thus are one of the voters responsible for the war. Since most of the people on this horrible site watch Fox News, the chances are that they voted for George W. Bush and are thus one of the voters responsible for the war.

Is this clear to you now?

Frankly, given the extremely bellicose nature of Fox News, I'd say that supporting them at all is "supporting the war", in the same way that reading Jew Watch is supporting anti-Semitism.

Your reasoning and logic needs some debugging.

This person watches Fox. Many people who watch Fox are Republicans. Therefore, this person is a Republican.

This person is a Republicans. Many Republicans support the war. Therefore, this person supports the war.

Syllogisms. Bah!

You disagree with the generalization about FOX viewers? Puh-leeze. . . the place is a Republican Party outlet.

anyhoo, back on topic, there is only one.

can't find a pic from 1989-92 when she was on NHK, alas

Do you find.... "People who watch Fox News are probably Republicans who support the war" to be controversial?

I don't think Dave Faris was trolling. It's just that syllogisms are sophomoric, and should be mocked.

Then again, I've never watched Fox News (don't get it up here) so I can afford to be attached.

In my heart, this guy will forever be interviewing Gary Numan, Bananarama or The Psychedelic Furs.
