More’s the pity, for courage is what made Fox News what it is today. Not ego. Not brashness. Not relativity. Courage. Fox, which once led, is becoming a follower. The network’s decision-makers have to realize that the poison that is anti-Semitism needs be fully removed, not merely “balanced.”

Pollution, once in the mix, spoils everything.

  1. A piece of truth: The author of this article is correct in his identifying of these contributors to the News as anti-Israel and or anti-Semitic How ever, Fox News.[including O'Reilly, and Hannity], is still mainly pro-Israel.These above referenced guests, I assume are brought on because of their opinions on other matters.While I personally would never have them on any programme of mine, I do not believe their inclusion indicates a descent into anti-Israel/Semitism.At least, not yet.However, I do see some anti-Israel/Semitic, unknowledgeable comments made in response to this article.Does that concern it's author?

  2. True enough about anti-semites Scheurer and Buchanan, etc. BUT next to Sun News in Canada, FOXNEWS is the most pro-Israel channel on TV. eXAMPLE – THE WAY THEY COVERED oBAMA TAKING OUT THOSE 3 LINES ABOUT iSRAEL FROM THE dEMOCRATIC PLATFORM and HOW THE SCREAMING mUSLIM DELEGATES AT THE CONVENTION RAGED WHEN just one OF THOSE LINES WAS PUT BACK IN because foxnews EXPOSED THE pARTY AFTER THE 2012 PLTFORM WAS RELEASED. tHIS WAS completely ignored by OTHER MEDIA AND NEWSPAPERS. pROTECTORS OF oBAMA.

  3. What makes the war in Iraq wrong?The lack of WMDs (since found in Syria) ? Saddam Hussain's gov was state sponsors of terror. New gov not much better but that's because "new think" is that all sides have merit and free speech (even hate speech) must be protected. After ww2 denazification was done and it's taken more than 60 years for that bs to take hold in German gov. .

  4. All of those statements are facts. Listen, I watch Fox all day long and LOVE the network, but the points the author is making are true.

    Scheuer is a total anti-Semite. I've listened to his garbage for a few years now. It took me a while to figure out he was anti-Israel (Because he was almost always talking about Bin Laden) but as they moved to the Israel issue, he thinks the U.S. has no business even defending Israel.

    Buchanan is obvious. He has years of anti-Semetic rhetoric that can be looked at. I'm glad Krauthammer called him out.

    And then there's Geraldo. He believes in pre 1967 borders and he is Jewish. Makes no sense to me. Most things that comes out of his mouth, is something I usually disagree with him on. He just likes TV time and all the attention. I don't think he's Fox material.

    Now Beckel, I've never heard make any remarks that I would find questionable. I never agree with the guy, but he's a good sport for getting ripped by 4 other conservatives 5 days a week. He's just a likable guy.

    My point being, is Fox covering Anti-Semitism and Israel, YES. They definitely cover the Israel issues very thoroughly. The article should have never been written because the title blows the issue out of proportion. Fox is THE ONLY reliable news source, in my opinion. And just because a few morons say things that one could say is anti-Semetic, that doesn't mean the whole network is like that.

    I stopped watching O'Reilly a few years back when he started trying too hard to be 'fair.' Screw 'fair' Just give your opinion in at least a semi entertaining way. He's lost his luster, in my opinion and I tend to disagree with him on a lot of things. He lost his 'toughness.'

    Hannity, I like watching because he is doing what needs to be done and that is pound Obama. And I mean pound and pound until the people 'get it' and I think he's very effective at it. Plus, his interviews are tough. He doesn't let people get away with crap.

    Anyway, I LOVE FOX! This article is filled with facts, but over blown and should be titled "A few people on Fox say stupid things about Israel" Not that the whole channel is this way.
