[Homestead] Not in NeverNever Land

Sheoples are those who limit themselves to one source of news.  The majority
of folks polled that said they only used one news source listed Fox as that
source.  As a single source, IMNSHO <g> Fox breeds sheople.

That is not to say that all folks that watch Fox are sheople.  Some folks
watch it for entertainment value.  Hey, whatever floats your boat <g>  I
just don't find them to be a very reliable news source.

Hmmmm, I wonder if it is because they can't figure out where their reality
(now there's a real oxymoron) t.v. shows end and news begins.  Yup, that's
probably the problem!

> Wow,
>    Linda, I agree with you down the line on your comments, except the one
about sheoples being those who watch fox. Just the opposite, of course. Fox
is a very recent development on the news source list, and is still getting a
minority of viewers compared to the old, staid network and newsprint sources
we were all weened on. I don't agree with much of what they say, but it is
great to see them shake the cobwebs off the always in agreement
"competitors". The sheoples just keep on following the same old path and
won't venture to change the channel to a new, less popular source.
