Fox News should be banned. Seriously, I'm a huge First Amendment defender, but when a major network shows such disregard for truth, facts, and history, I gotta shut 'em down.

While discussing the possibility of a Lincoln-Douglas style debate between Clinton and Obama, Fox put up photos of Lincoln and Douglas.

Except they didn't show Stephen A. Douglas' photo. They used FREDERICK DOUGLASS' PHOTO.

Fox News is not a legitimate news organization.

I guess we know the answer to one question: Is Fox smarter than a fifth grader? NOPE.

A recent column at realclearpolitics by Jack Kelly (Obama needs a history lesson) makes this closing point -

As Sir Winston Churchill said:

"Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

This quote, of course, is George Santayana, not Churchill. And it's actually -

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Of course, Kelly's ignorance of history is the least of the column's problems. It reads as if Kelly and logic were bitter enemies.
