I'm always amazed by the quality of FOX News. 
I mean can anyone imagine a more thoughtful conversation than this one?
You can't see a shouting match like this on CNN or on some other third-rate news network.

Did you happen to catch Bob Novak and James Carville today? B***s*** is now an acceptable response during a discussion on an afternoon news program? Walking off the set in the middle of a segment is now acceptable? Oh but wait, CNN has asked Bob Novak to "take a break..."
Yeah, FNC is the problem... riiiiiiiiight.

Don't you know, FNC just has talking heads arguing with each other. But CNN...they have Real News.

Yeah they put Rick Sanchez in all kinds of "Fear Factor"-ish stiutations. And they walk around patting themselves on the back because a sign blew down behind Anderson Cooper during a hurricane--and they did so BEFORE the hurricane was over and we knew if there were any deaths or serious damage.

Fox News slogan 'We report, you decide', or Fair and Balanced'?
What a crock of shite. Kasich has banned Bangert from ever being back on is programme, Touche Old Joe got their goat with the cut and run line.

'cut and run'
idiom, nautical
Clear out, escape, desert, as in He wished he could just cut and run. This term originally (about 1700) meant to cut a vessel's anchor cable and make sail at once. It means to SURVIVE! By the mid-1800s it was being used figuratively.
In the context of Mr. Bangert's usage of this phrase- 'cut and run' may be the only appropriate phrase before 2,000, 3,000, 4,000, or 5,000 or more soldiers die and many many more get wounded.
It's what you do to keep the ship (of state) from capsizing in its own human hubris and arrogance.
