Journalist Jeff Greenfield responded to the ongoing battle from the media recently when reporting that FOX News' news department is being accused of being the research and communication's arm of the Republican Party. He also said: "FOX's bottom-line has increased 13 percent since President Barack Obama came into office. So perhaps they are crying all the way to the bank."

Love of country

Who says Europe is magnificent? I was born there and sure I loved it. Nevertheless, I watched TV yesterday for long hours because I did not want to miss a song from a country singer's performance.
