FOX"News" is now referring to Uzbekhistan as "our staunch ally".

"We report. You decide."

Oh yes, and then later they're talking about a "military Humvee". Understand this, you fake-faced, fake-toothed, fake-smiled, loud-mouthed, arrogant, supercilious, self-important turds: High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) is a military acronym for a military vehicle, pronounced "Humvee". "Military Humvee" is a redundant statement, like saying "military fighter jet", "military battleship" or "military combat boots". Hummer is the civilian version. But, of course, FOX"News" would know this if they ever bothered to check the facts about anything they report.

This just brings me around to my point: FOX"News" sucks - hard and deep. If they were a whale, they'd be a blue whale - the biggest and the deepest, hardest-sucking. Calling what they shovel on to the airways "news" is almost like calling Hitler misunderstood. Not quite, of course, but close. They are a travesty and an insult to all the decent, hard-working, principled journalists and news-readers (I'm sure there's another joke in there, somewhere).

Anyone who ever spent time on the other side of the Iron Curtain and watched the news or read a newspaper knows what I'm talking about. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

Shepard Smith (however you spell his name, like it matters) the other night called Pakistanis "pakis". Nice touch, fella. Your mother must be so proud.
