In this piece about how a recent poll indicated that 49% of Republicans believe that ACORN stole the 2012 election for President Obama, Ed used two quotations from James Madison to make a point: “A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce, or a tragedy, or perhaps both." -and- ”Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” It's very sad to say, but even though ACORN ceased to exist two years ago, Fox News continues to refer to that organization in its reports as though the organization is alive and well.

The knowledge is out there. Unfortunately for its many viewers, it won't be found on Fox News.

It's just amazing to me, that Fox calls itself a News Channel, and that they are fair and balanced...I don't know which is worse, Fox or the ignorant, uninformed stooges who watch Fox, and believe what they're told...

When they recycle old news, you know it's not long before FuxNoise is totally in the toilet. Doesn't it even bother their minions that the owners are not even Americans...and every word out of the mouths of their anchors and pundits is toward the division and destruction of America?

I guess the RW ignorant want to stay stupid, no fixing that. Only the plainly stupid should be excused. As far as those who want to secede, let them all move to Texas and Arizona where the Govt of Mexico can annex them.

You also have to blame the people who are getting paid by Faux Nooz to deceive the gulible. Considering the result of their lies, it amounts to treason when you take money to undermine the government by slandering the the democratic institutions, the citizenship of the President and the loyalty of the elected and appointed officials of the government WITHOUT PROOF. The first time someone said the President was not a citizen they should have been required to produce evidence in court or shut up. It would have been criminal for Obama to run for President if he was not a citizen. False accusations of criminal activity should have consequences. Of course, the birth certificate was moot because Obama's mother was a citizen so regardless of birth location or other parent's citizenship, Obama is a natural born USA citizen.

By the way, John McCain was born in Panama where his father was stationed and both his parents lived at the time. Why was this not a fake issue for Faux Noose to report so you could decide?
