Wanko, as crazy as you are, this indeed was an interesting video.

Fox news lies again. Amazing.

Nice vid though, Wanky m'boy.

i love it how many people just loath fox news.

Listen, everybody's got an axe to grind and nobody's fair and balanced, but when you catch someone in a blatent lie maybe you should get your information elsewhere.

Just a thought.

There all the same, this video just happened to be about fox.

Actually, there was no lie here that I could see. What, there was a report that basically said "we suspect your milk hormone is not safe and should be tested more, however, we have no true evidence to this matter, just speculation." Yeah, i am sure a big milk conglomerate like Monsanto would flip the fuck out and try and threaten a news organization like fox to get the facts straight or not to run the story. It seems like things were messed up here, as in fox threatening and bullying. But honestly, every corporation probably does shit like this all the time. That does not make it right. But i wouldn't take the word of a bunch of kanook Canadians that might or might not have an agenda of their own. There are too many what if's and no hard evidence. The case was thrown out for a reason.

Damn Canadians, always following that anti-monsanto agenda. Just like Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, and the entire EU. The only country allowing their cows to be pumped up with that shit is the US.

What, those other countries don't want their 11 year olds to have breasts the size of a b cup at that age? Fuck them!

K-Bil: Where did your assertion about a lack of evidence come from? The reporters said that they _had_ evidence that rBST content in milk might be linked to cancer, or at the very least, that Monsanto had falsified scientific tests to push the hormone through to the market.

"Get the facts straight" is, in this case, slang for "don't lose us any money." And I love the fact that you're attacking the Kanooks, who "might" have an agenda, while defending Fox, which has a definite and clear agenda.

They don't go through their evidence in this vid, but it is, after all, about Fox, not Monsanto.

The case was thrown out, not for lack of evidence, but because falsifying news is not illegal, thus does not qualify under whistle-blower status.
10 years ago
correct. They did have evidence? Oh really? They sort of skimmed over that part pretty quickly because "might be linked to cancer" is still "might." That word in itself is not enough evidence. Sorry. Just like my cell phone "might" give me cancer. Or sacrin "might" give me cancer. Sorry, not enough evidence means just that. It did not qualify under whistle blower status because their report was originally faulty and could not be proved.

The fact they claim to be fair and balanced every 10 seconds pisses me off...plus they've come up with most of the shitty reality shows that make Americans look like douchebags. They came up with Nanny 911 which became SuperNanny on some other network and they made The Swan which became Doctor 90210 on E! or something.

And they cancel their good shows like Family Guy, Dark Angel and Fastlane...ok the last two were going downhill but Jessica Alba and Tiffany Theissen should be on primetime every night.

Jeez boitoi, when your amongst the bottom 25% freaks of the USA, ever think that YOU are the fucking problem?..

If you care to see what the reporters have in the way of evidence:

The word in itself has been taken out of context by you K-Billy. Apart from the fact in the report I don't hear anyone say the words "might" and "cancer" in the same sentence, "might" in this case means something other than you assert.

You make it sound like "might" means that a link between this hormone and cancer is unproven. The "might" in the report is that case by case, person by person it has the potential to cause cancer based on the individual as opined by a number of leading academics. There's no question in their mind whether this can be a cause of cancer, it's simply a qualification that obviously not everyone will suffer cancer from it just as bee stings don't always kill people.

fuc faux news. it's durn bad fur pepl . you should follw in footsetps of savage and chairman. they saythat faux liy to pepl! serisliy! they r right! Aww you know what? Fuck that shit. Savage, i will not even deem respond to your usual "25%" bullshit. you didnt respond to my comment last time when i owned you and you sure as hell wont waste the time on it again this time. And as for Chairman? "evidence that rBST content in milk might be linked to cancer," quoted from Arsefacer. The video said something similar to the effect but my comment was directed at him. You sure can bloat out a lot of silly shit when semantics are involved. And as for arseface, Your webpage is just a glorified version of the video up there. Nothing new. But donna worry koskids! I be a good litle perdon and make slobby with the computr. I just dum enogh cuz foaux is bad! U told me so!

K-Billy: I take it you weren't interested enough to actually look at the site, so I've taken the liberty of extracting a couple quotes, lest you stay the retard course.

On the safety of BGH:
Dr. Samuel Epstein, Scientist, University of Illinois: "…there are highly suggestive if not persuasive lines of evidence showing that consumption of this milk poses risks of breast and colon cancer."

On Monsanto's shaky research:
"In the Fall of 1994, Canadian television quoted a Canadian health official as reporting Monsanto offered $1-2 million if her government committee would recommend BGH approval in Canada without further data or studies of the drug."

More where that came from...

I found that site in about twelve seconds and frankly, I could give a shit about BGH, but don't you dismiss points before you know what you're talking about.
So, you don't like the word "might"? How about "did"? Monsanto "did" falsify research data and they "did" put an insufficiently tested product on the market. Then Fox, fearing to lose sponsors, tried to falsify their story. The reporters wouldn't budge, and sued Fox essentially for lying to the public, but the case was thrown because an appeals court decided that lying to the public is not a crime.
10 years ago
I'm sorry, but I more readily believe those without a strong motivation to lie than those that stand to gain something. Assuming that Fox is lying, they are lying to continue making assloads of cash. If the reporters are lying, all they've gotten so far is fired.
Do the fucking math.

You don't like what I say? Prove me wrong.
10 years ago
I'm sorry, but i have already proved my point. which was the story was faulty in the first place. Also, there has been no proof from anyone this chemical does jack shit to anyone. There is not one case in support of your argument. Just your "highly suggestive if not persuasive lines of evidence." Uh huh. Right. Laughably, this clip is from Outfoxed. It's like saying a Micheal Moore film is true and a reliable source to quote from. I'm glad you found out all that information in "like 12 seconds!" Because everything on the internet is SO TRUE! Hey! I dont give a shit about BGH either! I would be more hard pressed to say McDonald's has worse shit than the milk made here. At least Morgan helped bring out that to peoples attention. But whatever. I dont really care. It seems like you are going to believe what you will, and I am not going to budge on what I think. So there you have it.

Then shut your stupid ass up!
You are ignorant, and it is proven time and time again. No matter what evidence is brought forth you cover your eyes, plug your ears and run your mouth... You are wrong... Wrong... and Wrong again... But then again you have most likely been sheltered your entire life by a family that has similar..ahem "values" of obstinacy...
There is no low that is commited in your name that you will not rally behind and support, as for you it is not the deed..it is the team.

You are backwash tho...and used by your ideologues, as much..if not more then the ideologues on the other side use their base...

Tool...you probably even have the shirt.

LOL! I notice that you never add anything substantial to an argument other than, "shut up, join the army already, you are a tool." All insults and rebuttals of the ignorant and lame. Your words mean nothing to me savage. You sir, are the lost pathetic waste of brain space. The tool of the left, a mouthpiece of ignorance and hatred for all things American. When it comes to Liberals remember kos kids. "Do as i say, not as I do." Right Savage LOL!!!!
10 years ago
? What ?

Anything of substance is wasted on the brick wall you call a face.... I do love the whole "sir" thing.. lmao... you sound sooo sophistacted
All you got is a seriouly inane imitation is some of the insults I sling at you, and acting like you have some sort of a Monopoly on what is or is not American is about the highest peak of arrogance I have seen out of your chickenhawk ass yet...
"Do as I say, not as I do" is no doubt the motto of all the warmongering cannibals on the right.. None of them have served, and all of them, including your hanger ass... Want more death and destruction, and they think rooting for it makes them tough...and a real American...

Anyway I served my time in the service you shit smear... I have a right to my opinion of what we are doing in this county... Your dad got your mommy wasted and fucked her in the back seat of a car, and you were spawned... You have no gravity to your regurgitated, inane opinions based on fantasy.
So once again, Go sign up... Now... Your COUNTRY NEEDS YOU BOY!

K-Billy: "i have already proved my point"
-I like your use of the word "proved". Usually, to prove things, one must present "proof" or at least "evidence". You have done neither. In fact, you seem to have avoided using anything but rhetoric to back up your claims.
For those of us that wish to present an argument based on some form of reality, here is an excerpt from the actual appeals court decision that reversed the original jury verdict.
"Because the FCC’s news distortion policy is not a “law, rule, or regulation” under section [section]448.102, Akre has failed to state a claim under the whistle-blower's statute. Accordingly, we reverse the judgment in her favor and remand for entry of a judgment in favor of WTVT.
Reversed and remanded."
Case No. 2D01-529

August 18, 2000, a Florida state court jury unanimously determined that Fox "acted intentionally and deliberately to falsify or distort the plaintiffs' news reporting on BGH."
Haven't found the case No. yet...

The subsequent reversal does not attack the veracity of this claim, and therefore it stands.

The above citations are taken directly from legal documents, and their accuracy cannot be contested without counter-evidence.

This is not a question of belief. This is not a "different strokes" situation. I have presented conclusive evidence that bears out my position, while you have done nothing more than sputter about bias.
When I said "Prove me wrong," that wasn't a rhetorical invitation. I really want you to attack my points in some meaningful way. I might learn something.
