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.

The 60-39 vote cleared the way for a bruising, full-scale debate beginning after Thanksgiving on the legislation, which is designed to extend coverage to roughly 31 million who lack it, crack down on insurance company practices that deny or dilute benefits and curtail the growth of spending on medical care nationally.
