The TV channel in Lebanon that relays Fox News is called ADD.
I…I just think it’s funny.

    I did a bit of a double-take when I saw that Fox is being relayed into Lebanon .

  2. Dom 2

    It’s so we Arabs have a reason to throw things at the TV – no good being hot-blooded if you have nothing to aggravate you into action!

  3. Stephen 3

    You chaps must be running out of bullets then eh

  4. lebanon is a democratic country.. fox is broadcast in venezuela too

  5. Dom 5

    Yeah Stephen, we’re saving the bullets for the Israelis…and other Lebanese of course (for the record – Kiwi of Lebanese descent here!)

  6. And ours is called Prime!

    Seriously though, Fox News, Bill O Reilly. If you want to see a twisted whinging Republican psycho look no further than him!

  7. randal 7

    it…none of that while I’m eating my lunch please

    Fox news. Funnily enough I just subscribed today. In the USA, it’s OK to be a hard line conservative. Not so OK for us here in NZ. What does that tell you about freedom in NZ?

  9. Felix 9

    Well… that statement tells me you’re a moron. What else?

  10. Pascal's bookie 10

    What do you mean coge? Does the govt come and lock you up for being a ‘hard line conservative’ in NZ? What exactly happens?

    Oh, you mean people disagree with you and call you names. Do Liberals not get called names in the states?

    Seems to me they called all sorts of names. There is a vast swath of money available for authors and pundits (coulter hannity beck limbaugh etc ad nauseum)that specialise in calling Liberals names and accusing them of treason, which is a crime punnishable by death.

    Do you think American style conservtaives get a harder time here, than kiwi style lefties would get in the US?

    Or are you just playing at the martyr?

  11. Matthew Pilott 11

    coge – they hate us for our freedom. Never forget that.

  12. Matthew Pilott 12

    Given this thread is around International News (yes, that is, thus far, my weakest attempt at trying to link something to a thread), check out what the New york times has to say about us:

    Let’s Hear It For New Zealand

    I was interested to note that they named NZ in the title – guess we’re still known for the old anti-nuke stand…

  13. uroskin 13

    Faux News, faux pregnancy. What else do Republicans have in their policy cupboard?

  14. coge 14

    MP, absolutely. Here in Godzone, it’s best for conservatives to STFU & remain in the conservative closet. The left need to walk a mile in our shoes. In fact ten metres should do it.

  15. randal 15

    coge..it might be ok to be a right wing conservative in the US but it is not ok to be a left winger…what does that say about the US?

  16. r0b 16

    Here in Godzone, it’s best for conservatives to STFU & remain in the conservative closet. The left need to walk a mile in our shoes. In fact ten metres should do it.

    Coge, there is no conspiracy to suppress right-wing conservatism in NZ. It’s just that Kiwis have far too much good sense to buy in to those unpleasant “philosophies”. But carry on believing that you are persecuted by the monsters under the bed if that helps.

  17. Ben R 17

    “coge..it might be ok to be a right wing conservative in the US but it is not ok to be a left winger what does that say about the US?”

    What do you mean it’s not ok to be a left winger in the US? NYC & San Francisco for starters are renowned for being liberal strongholds.

  18. randal 18

    ben r about time you did some in depth study of american political terminology…liberal in the US means you belong to the democratic party. not that you are a left winger. get it right.

  19. toad 19

    coge said: In the USA, it’s OK to be a hard line conservative. Not so OK for us here in NZ. What does that tell you about freedom in NZ?

    Depends how you define freedom coge. The differences in understandings of the word have always best been summed up for my by this song from about 30 years ago.

  20. Pascal's bookie 20

    Ben,

    That fact that they are renowned ‘strongholds’.

    That is a ‘clue’.

  21. Ben R 21

    “liberal in the US means you belong to the democratic party. not that you are a left winger.”

    Sure, but some of those liberals would also be considered left wingers? Would Michael Moore count as left wing?

  22. coge 22

    Toad, no disrespect to you or the TR band, but if you believe that is how I think, you have unwittingly proven my point!

  23. toad 23

    coge, I was thinking more of how the Family Party think actually.

  24. randal 24

    michael moore is another fool who does not realise that humans are adventitious to the capitalist system of production and not the cause of it. till he gets that right he is just another smartass celebrity seeker/television twerp of the typical american variety
