There is something to be said for keeping Fox News "fair and balanced" by airing the liberal viewpoint but balancing it with the conservative viewpoit, but most liberals just can't help but be totally ridiculous. I agree people like Juan Williams and Geraldo Rivera can get pretty ridiculous. Shepard Smith is supposed to be a straight up news reporter but his liberal views come through loud and clear. I love Tucker Carlson's show where he brings on liberals and systematically shoots down their arguments and laughs at them while doing it.
Shepard Smith had me fooled up until Katrina. He seemed to not really lean one way or the other. Then in NO, he pulled a bunch of folks together for a focus group type interview, and did everything he could to get them to bash GW. They refused, and he got so frustrated he looked like he was going to cry. I tried to watch after that and he veered increasingly to the left.
So whenever he is on, I flip or silence the channel. (station, network?) What do the young whippersnappers call it now. I still use the word film for record or video.
I resisted programs like Nutrisystem where you eat their food because you don't learn how to cook your own healthy food like Weight Watchers teaches. The problem with Weight Watchers is they are point based instead of calorie based and it takes lots of time to figure out the points in recipes. What I am learning with Nutrisystem is they have recipes too so as I come off program I can easily add up the caloies for a recipe and divide by the number of servings to get the calories per serving like nutrition labels. The other difference is Nutrisystem counts the calories for everything except non-starcy vegetables. If you want to lose weight keep daily calories less than 1500 and preferably around 1200. To maintain weght keep calories around 1500 per day. And it's easy to gain - just consistently eat over 1500 per day.
