Give it a rest, Fox News

Even for a regular watcher like me, Fox News is becoming tedious. I tuned in this morning and they were harping, as before and before that, about President Barack Obama not showing up in Paris to march with the dozens of other world leaders in support of free speech.

I'm just as bothered by Obama's failure to show support, but, hey, I want some news mixed in with it. I confess that I hadn't watched all morning, so I can't say that Obama's gaffe was all that Fox News was offering. But in any case, when I heard the same old, same old on Fox, I turned to its neighbor, One America News, that better offers a menu of hard news without all the blah-blah.

I"ll continue to watch Fox News, especially to get Charles Krauthammer on Bret Baier. And I'll tune in at times to MSNBC to see what looney stuff is going on there. But at some point, even the most faithful viewer has to tire of Fox's agenda.

  • Fox News has news?

  • Can't watch any crap network or cable (including Fox) news anymore. Or visit the popular media sites, especially the pathetic "newspaper" sites. I get my news strictly from the Onion, though they have sold out by taking gobs of money to promote, which should be an Onion feature everyday.

  • I've been a watcher of Fox for years, but I know exactly what you're saying. Particularly in the morning with Fox & Friends - it's getting repetitive and boring. They need to revamp their whole agenda and start delivering something worthwhile (Krauthammer is always right-on.)
