Fox News Misspells 'Selfie' During Report On Adding Selfie To Dictionary

Fox News Misspells 'Selfie' During Report On Adding Selfie To Dictionary

Commented May 20, 2014 at 09:41:29 in Media

“Wow! Major news story. Fox had a typo. Of course, the Left NEVER makes mistakes. Obama pronounced corpsman as "corpseman". Biden said that "jobs" is a three letter word. We are talking about the President and Vice President of the US!. But since they are Dems, they get a free pass. Selfie is some made up word that has just entered the language. This is all the Leftists have.”

latietz1 on May 21, 2014 at 01:06:06

“Only you heard Obama mispronounce that word? Why didn't you report it? And the fact that only you have the inside scoop on Biden being a nit-wit is astonishing.”

“It is amazing the way you people attack Lewinski, yet say nothing about Clinton. He was the one in power, he was the one was married, he is the one who should have known better. I couldn't care less about Lewinski, but when the President of the US puts himself in such a compromising position, I have a real problem with that.”

“Clinton wasn"t attacked at the time ? Check the media and the amount of articles and reports when this happened. I have a problem with lewinsky bringing that up again after such a long time. She needs money maybe, so it's a commercial move, she doesn't deserve compassion since she is only looking for money”

“Bill Clinton can take heart. As allegations of presidential sex capades go, the Paula Jones/Jennifer Flowers claims may not even merit a footnote, historically speaking.

Long before the supermarket tabloids, Democrat Grover S. Cleveland and Republican Warren G. Harding had to deal with accusations of fathering out-of-wedlock babies. And both quietly acquiesced to making child-support payments.

Of course, other commanders-in-chief had out-of-wedlock romantic affairs: Thomas Jefferson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy. However, none is known to have paid child support or hush money.”

“"It is amazing the way you people attack Lewinski, yet say nothing about Clinton."

If you've heard nothing about Clinton over this, then you've not been receptive to such criticisms of him...since this one has never left his side. Monica is getting no more attention (likely much less) than Clinton over this.

You can't pretend there's a double standard when the right has been moving on this one, keeping it in the public now for decades. It's out there...all over the place and against Clinton.”

“Say what? I had enough of women trying to climb the corporate and financial ladder by climbing on other things and when they do not succeed claim to be victims.

No they are all gold diggers, wishing to use men to get what they want. Monica wanted to use Clinton to move up in the Oval Office, just did not work out. Who keeps a dress someone squirted on unless they have a motive?.....Victim my foot....”

“Where is she compared to Clinton? She was not the little innocent little wallflower the right tried to portray her as...she was an ADULT, not a child, fully aware of what would happen if she got involved with Clinton, as he would also have to realize the consequences.Move on, Monica, and don't try it with Hillary...once a ++ always a ++.”

arx754 on May 6, 2014 at 20:52:43

“The "problem" is that she's milking this for all its worth. She going to come out every 10 years to re-visit it?

The obvious reason is that she's run out of all the money she made off of it when it happened, and instead of moving on, perhaps getting a real job, she's going to squeeze every dime out of this for as long as she can.

And, I understand she announced, in 2008, that she'd become a Republican. Do you really think this isn't about reminding people about Bill Clinton in the hope that it'll discredit Hilary and her 2016 run?

I'll bet a conservative used his connections to get her this essay in Vanity Fair. After all, she can't possibly have anything new to say about it all, so who would be interested? She'll just re-hash the whole thing.

She's obviously very comfortable about discussing all this in public, time and again.
What that says about her is that she'd do the same thing all over again. In a heartbeat. She's no shy, blushing, little thing.”

“First of all, the proper spelling is "losing", not Loosing. Second, I am not losing customers, I am actually gaining customers. I do very little actual health insurance. Mostly, I do Indemnity policies. With deductibles rising so high, more and more people are looking into Indemnity policies to help cover the out of pocket expense. It is true I am losing some insurance business. United Healthcare has pulled out of MD, due to Obamacare. The few health policies I sold were United Healthcare policies.”

“Oh please. There is one bit of "good " news. What about the 15.8 % who are not covered? I thought this was supposed to cover everyone? What about the increase in premiums, people losing their plans( some in mid treatment), and losing their doctors. This, AFTER Obama promised that people could "keep" their currant plans and doctors if they want. A flat out LIE. I work in the insurance business. One of my accounts just dropped their healthcare for the employees, and told them they had to get it on their own now, due to the drastic rate increase. Another is trying desperately to find a way to afford the tremendous rate increase. Here in blue Maryland, the rollout has been a disaster. After spending a quarter of a BILLION dollars on the system, they have no choice but scrap it. This has still not played out, and there are far more bad stories then good. This, with a media that is for the most part, in the tank for Obama.”

sherrybb on Apr 9, 2014 at 00:11:32

“oh for crying out loud.. maybe maryland is bad, but there are tons of options in some states, and the premiums are not skyrocketing- they are lower. I also have worked in insurance for 20 plus yrs and it is clear that some states do indeed have better options than others. If you do work in insurance, you know that there are still rate increases but they are much less than they were 10-15 yrs ago. More bad stories than good....can you show me that report? And we already know that a good many of the ads that have been run by Koch Brothers and friends are bald face lies? did those lies bother you as much as O saying you could keep your insurance? and you, being in the business and all, have you acknowledged that insurance policies get canceled every single year, that no one has ever had a guarantee that they could keep their doctor or their plan if they liked it ( which is why it was beyond stupid that O promised such a thing). Even in the work market place, had my network change 4 out of 5 yrs during one stretch...this is not new and pretending it is all due to the ACA...well, seems like a flat out LIE, as you mentioned.”

“Of the 5 million, how many had health insurance before the ACA? How many have actually paid their premiums? How many of them enrolled in the government paid Medicaid? Don't ask the person Obama put in charge, Sebelius. All she will say is 'I don't know". I thought there were 30 to 50 million uninsured, and Obamacare was supposed to fix this problem.

“The 5M is the exchanges number only - 5M who had no ins or ins with annual caps or no out-of-pocket limits etc. 5M who could have been dropped at any time and now have security. And of course those who couldn't get ins who now can.

The TOTAL with sub 26's and Medicaid and non-exchange sign ups is 15M - a good start since many states refused the Medicaid expansion and we know from MA that the exchanges will take time to reach full potential. Overall, a good start.

BruceDavidBraden on Mar 16, 2014 at 20:46:28

“Don't have to be religious to use religion as propaganda. Hitler grew up Catholic."The national (Nazi) government will maintain and defend the foundations on which the power of our nation rests. It will offer strong protection to Christianity as the very basis of our collective morality. Today Christians stand at the head of our country. . . . I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity . . .We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit. We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theatre, and in the press-in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during recent years."
Hitler ( a Radio Broadcast July 22, 1933; from My New Order. ) (The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, 1922-1939, Vol. 1. pp. 871-872, Oxford University Press,London, 1942)
To read more quotes of the role of religion for/by Hitler go to:
http://liberalslikechrist.org/Catholic/Hitlersfaith-1.html

Hitler managed to get to Mass, be photographed coming out of church. Many say he spoke against Christianity at times, but he also used it as a role model. Albert Speer reportedly wrote his daughter in 1953: he (Hitler) himself, as you may know, never formally renounced the Catholic Church .... I suspect he couldn't give it up."”

“As usual, there is much more to the story then is being presented. First of all, the South is much more agriculturally based. Therefore, wages are lower. Then you factor in the fact that many of the farm workers are illegal aliens, Lowering the wages even more. In addition, Miss., South Carolina, and others have the highest percentage of black population. Blacks, overall, make much less then whites. Also, they have a much higher rate of teenage birth. While the income is lower, the cost of living is also much lower. The tax burden is also much lower.Finally, the argument that Southern States take in more than they pay in Fed. taxes is also misleading. One of the main reasons is that there are more military installations in the South. This is not welfare, as people try to make the case.
All one needs to do is look at the Democratically controlled cities: Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore, St Louis, Gary, Ind., Camden NJ, etc. There you will find by far the largest percentage of residents on welfare, food stamps, high obesity, teenage parents, and low wages, por schools, and very high crime rates.”

In the red states, government is cheaper, which means the people who live there pay lower taxes. But they also get a lot less in return. The unemployment checks run out more quickly and the schools generally aren’t as good. Assistance with health care, child care, and housing is skimpier, if it exists at all. The result of this divergence is that one half of the country looks more and more like Scandinavia, while the other increasingly resembles a social Darwinist’s paradise.
