Conservatives, liberals and their news sources

A Letter to the Editor titled “What do they stand for?” should beat Burger King out for Whopper of the Year.

That’s because the letter is nothing but one whopper after another. First, Rick Page says it is hard to believe either the Tea Party or the GOP is interested in helping Americans. But look at everything that is run by Mr. Page's Democrats: Washington D.C., California, Detroit, Chicago, New York and more. Yep, those are Democrat success stories. NOT.

He goes on to say that Paul Ryan only called one person to testify in his congressional hearing on poverty that is actually poor, and claims Ryan made her submit a 64-page statement for the record. The fact is she and her husband made nearly 20 dollars and hour in wages. Also, her testimony was on page 64 of the congressional record; she did not submit a 64-page long statement.

He claims in June 2014 that Gallop released a poll claiming 94 percent of Fox News viewers are Republicans and 66 percent are hard-nosed viewers. The poll was in 2013 and again that is not true. On the Gallop website, it said Fox News is a clear driver of Republicans' higher tendency to turn to television for their news, with 20 percent versus 6 percent of Independents and 1 percent of Democrats, naming it as their main news source. The closest is CNN, named by 10 percent of Democrats, 6 percent of independents, and 4 percent of Republicans.

It also said that 94 percent of Fox viewers lean toward being conservative, but it did not say they were Republicans. It also said, by contrast, 46 percent of core CNN viewers identify as Democrat, and 63 percent identify as or lean Democratic.

Fox News is number one and a success story because it is managed by conservatives, and they are fair and balanced. CNN, on the other hand, is on the verge of bankruptcy because it is managed by Liberals and is consistently untrustworthy.

CNN mirrors the Democrat party because they are the Democratic Party.
