Queerty is better as a member
Wait a minute…. Correct me if I´m wrong (stupid foreigner here *lol*) isn´t FOX a subsidiary of the Fox Entertainment Group and isn´t that the same group that owns Fox News ?
So at FOX you´ll get the most diverse and positive representation of every colour the rainbow has to offer and at Fox News you get a bunch of dumb homophobes (according to the news here at queerty) who spew so much bull*** into the air that I sometimes almost can´t believe it?!?
So Fox loves and supports us and Fox News hate us and want us gone? But it´s the same company ?
That´s like milky way having an ad campaign saying “we love you gays” and snickers having one at the same time with a slogan like “all fags should burn in hell”… Both are from the same company so I wouldn´t buy either of the two!
Please tell me that I´m wrong and that the two channels actually are two different companys!
I would hate to think that we are actually dumb\blind\entertainment-whory enough to watch (and therefore finance) a company that openly hates us but is clever enough to shake something glittery and shiny in front of our faces because it wants our money at the same time…
(I´m so glad we don´t have such bull**** where I live. Seriously I sometimes read about Fox News here on queerty and can´t believe my eyes.. *lol* Same goes for Pat Robertson and friends. In my country that would qualify for “hate speech” and wouldn´t be allowed to air!)
@DanielStevens: DAMN, I WISH I LIVED WHERE YOU LIVE
@Ogre Magi: Seriously, people always think germany is a backwards hick-country (obviously because of the history). The politics are on par with the US, meaning there´s still a lot to be done but much has changed for the better!
BUT the main media (tv, magazines, newspapers) are really pro gay (some are neutral or simply don´t voice opinions but at least they don´t spew homophobia into the air).
That doesn´t mean we have less hate crimes, gay bashings etc. than the US but at least you can buy every newspaper, watch every tv channel, look at every billboard without getting offended or trashed ;0)
Fox News and Fox TV are owned by the same, but this ‘hypocrisy’ shouldn’t be surprising. Fox is a business first and foremost and they’d sell their mother for a buck.
Fox News fills a conservative niche and they get ALL the conservative viewers, unlike liberal stations that have to share the liberal market.
If all the stations were conservative, fox would switch to being a liberal station in a heartbeat, again to have a lock on a demographic.
But they are going to be a liberal station in 20 years anyway as their base simply dies out.
Rethugs controlled media trying hard to push gay people back in the closet!
@DanielStevens: Yeah, Fox loves gay money, just not gay equality.
@DanielStevens: My only trip to Germany was tinged when I ate one of your countries awesome pretzels, but before the acid was washed off.
It tasted like burning. Fortunately Lidl supermarkets here in the UK bake them fresh every day. Glorious, and the sausages, glorious.
Visiting Auschwitz, I don’t have the verbal alacrity to describe.
@2eo: Pretzels are a bavarian thing not a german one ;0) Bavaria is a state in germany with a very different culture than the rest of the country (example: Pretzel, Weisswurst (white sausages, Dirndl etc.). You can find these things mainly in Bavaria and hardly ever anywhere else in germany)…
As for Auschwitz: It´s a devastating tragedy what happened there and during that time of german history in general. Many people still have reservations or a bad feeling about germany because of what happened when that Austrian asshole (yes, Hitler was from Austria) was in charge. Don´t take this the wrong way (as I said it was a tragedy and just plain horrible) but all that happened over 65 years ago. The people who live here now, the people who are in charge now had nothing to do with it or weren´t even born yet.
It´s like “the sins of our grandfathers”.
I´m so over having every discussion (especially about foreign politics etc.) with someone from another country ending in the other one saying “Yeah, well.. well… eeehhhhmmm.. HITLER!”
Back to topic: I´m just so shocked about a company being so two-faced and not even being a little sneaky about it and people just don´t care. I never experienced such blatant homophobia and such an open case of “Yeah, we hate you but here is something shiny now give us your money” and have people actually do it/fall for that without saying anything…
my parents in-law recently got a nearly new white Audi allroad Wagon only from working parttime online. his explanation,,, smarturl.it/bhtmj6
@DanielStevens: My trip could and should be summed up thusly.
