I'm Forrest Carr, novelist, blogger, land snark, and former TV news director and talk radio host. I tackle politics, cats, the media, paranormal psychology, dreams, God, guns, evolution, rat bastards, and anything else that might make you think or laugh, maybe even simultaneously. And, oh yeah, I have cancer, which makes me the Walter White of bloggers. You have been warned.

Fox News Is Not Destroying America
When I posted a missive on my Facebook page a few months back containing the statement referenced in the title of this blog entry, it really got people's blood pumping. To say the least, folks have strong feelings about Fox News. But my 33 years of TV news trench warfare taught me that those viewers who are most vocal in demanding "fairness" and "balance" in their TV news coverage don't mean it, don't want it, and won't have it if you try to give it to them. Yet our democracy manages to muddle through anyway. Why is that?
