That is an invalid argument. Because his guest. Was really an unbelievably stupid man. Its not really an opinion. Its a fact, its like saying the sun is hot. Its a fact that is impossible to deny. Unless you watch fox. Which in that case, its time to idk.....stop thinking? or talking? Or breathing? Really, Fox viewers. We are better off without you.

In reality, the royal family costs them like $60 million a year. The US spends over $1 billion a year for its President.
To be fair, that 1 billion covers everything, including very good security. So its a good investment not to get your leader killed.

On the other end...the Royal family doesn't really do anything besides look pretty and waste tax payer money. Yeah sure they attract idiot tourist to Britain. But other than the Royal family.....whats good in Britain? Not much besides Blackpool. It's nothing more than USA 2.0. I'd much rather go to France or Germany.

As long as it doesn't break FCC rules you can do what ever you want on TV.

Chris Wallace....and thats it in my opinion. I think FOX news is nothing more than a facade, for corporate interests.

I think FOX is a propaganda network driven by corporate interests. I think Chris Wallace is there to stop the FCC from yanking their license. As a news network.( It has already been yanked in the in several countries. For not really being news, just opinion ) Their main talking heads are Hannity and Bill O'Rielly. Both of which have lied multiple times on air, and don't let anyone with an opposing viewpoint get a word in.

Fox is nothing more than a propaganda network that targets the weak minded.

Exactly.

Thats how FOX can lie, make **** up, and never tell the full story. And be allowed on Air.

I mean FOX is the network that loves to Ignore the fact that 5,000 American Soldiers, 2500+ French, Danish, French, and British soliders were killed in Iraq, and 155,000 innocents were killed in Iraq.

Then freaks out that " 4 dead american's were killed because Obama didn't care "

Escalating things in an interview sort of takes the point out of the interview. You don't really derive information from that. If you're going to yell at the guest, why not start by not inviting them on? The biggest point of frustration I could see for an interviewer is if certain valid topics are placed off limits in advance.
