Purveyor of Truth (Part 2) - Fox News Channel’s Credibility at Stake

FNC describes itself as fair and balanced.

Yet, it has no commentary-show host advocating no contradictions to the Declaration of Independence –  no contradictions to equal inherent inalienable rights.

Yet, it has handed huge trumpets to the moral descendants of “the sun revolves around the Earth” tyrants, but none to one who does not evade reality: the pregnant woman is alive while the zygote, which has no brain activity, is not.

Glenn Beck is a self-proclaimed Libertarian who blatantly sponsored a political candidate in the 2009 elections. A Libertarian is pro-anarchism – Mr. Beck is an advocate of two phenomena forbidden by the Constitution: anarchism and a religious political party: the Conservative Party.

Sean Hannity repetitively makes the Conservative Declaration: “I am not a Republican, I am a Conservative.” Governor Mike Huckabee, also a moral descendant of “the sun revolves around the Earth” tyrants, is a favorite of Conservatives. Governor Huckabee could become the next President of the USA.

Who is the fair and balanced opposite of Mr. Beck, Mr. Hannity, and Governor Huckabee? A commentary-show host who reveres the Declaration of Independence
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — …
A Fox News Channel commentary-show host who advocates, not for anarchism, but for a government whose ONLY function is to secure rights, i.e. rights to action.
“A right is that which can be exercised without anyone’s permission.” – Ayn Rand
A Fox News Channel commentary-show host who advocates, not for a faith-based government, i.e. a theocracy, but for a government deriving its just powers from the consent of the governed - just powers based on inherent inalienable rights, meaning: not subject to a public vote.

Thomas Jefferson said: “Reason and persuasion are the only practicable instruments.” To remove the use of force from citizen interactions so that individuals may deal with each other only by reason and persuasion, citizens delegate their right to self-defense to their government. Citizens cannot delegate a right they do not possess – hence, the government has no right to regulate inherent inalienable Rights, including the rights of individuals who hold that selfishness is a virtue.

Bill O’Reilly advocates economic regulations. He endorses shackles and leashes for some businessmen, e.g. oil executives. To Mr. O’Reilly, the principle of inalienable rights and the presumption of innocence doctrine do not apply to businessmen and to abortion providers. He champions rights infringement – he advocates slavery so long as he is not the slave.

Please rise to be recognized: FNC commentary-show hosts who advocate the mandates of the principle of equal inherent inalienable rights:
  • Separation of church and state
  • Separation of state and economics
  • Separation of state and science
  • Separation of state and education
  • Separation of state and art
Please rise to be recognized: FNC commentary-show hosts who expose the fact that President Ronald Reagan, also a moral descendant of “the sun revolves around the Earth” tyrants, vigorously implemented evil laws: Antitrust and Insider Trading.

FNC’s credibility is at stake. If theocracy sentiment sells, would you resort to evasion and profit from it? If the powerful, the popular, and the polls are on the side of unreason, would you risk investment or livelihood to stand up for rationality?

To honor its fair and balanced motto, to stand for truth and integrity, FNC must also give voice to Jeffersonians or Objectivists: individualists who hold no contradictions to this devotion expressed by Ayn Rand: "If it is ever proper for men to kneel, we should kneel when we read the Declaration of Independence... the GREATEST DOCUMENT IN HUMAN HISTORY, both philosophically and literarily."

Fox News Channel: join the fight of Thomas Jefferson – “Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppression of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”

So, uh, just a minor point, I know... but don't you have to have something before it can be at stake? :-)

(Not that any of Fox's big competitors are any better, of course.)

BTW, how does Glenn Beck call himself a libertarian?

I hope FNC is sincere in its fair and balanced motto.

I heard GB say it in shows. I had hoped he meant "small l" since he often quotes the Founders, but I was deluding myself. The Libertarian Party is too popular for media personalities not to mean "capital L" when they say Libertarian.

I just read this: http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/196/24957/

That they talk about fighting for the repeal of the 16th Amendment is great. But I just found out from this article that the Judge is anti-choice. And I liked him! Not anymore.

What matters is a person's fundamentals. And a political party's. The founding principle of the Libertarian Party is anarchism.

Fox's Brit Hume describes Ayn Rand as "Libertarian atheist." -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t96LqJ_mRg8&feature=player_embedded#!

No fact-respecting person would describe Ayn Rand as Libertarian. Hume spouts the lie that Ayn Rand was expelled from the Conservative movement. She could not be expelled from a movement she never joined, and which she absolutely rejected:

Ayn Rand described the Conservative Party as “not an American political party, but a religious party – A PHENOMENON FORBIDDEN BY THE CONSTITUTION.” She further said: “the Conservative Party… subordinates reason to faith, and substitutes theocracy for capitalism…”

Fox News HQ 1:18-1:19 guest Joel Rosenberg, author of Inside the Revolution, commented about the current situation in Egypt that Jesus Christ is the answer.

FNC: politics + Christianity = Christian THEOCRACY.
