Those scumbags can't show more signs of hypocracy than this. Saw this the other day, thought I might share:

If you want to show a conflict show it from both sides or not at all, then ther propaganda of each side might cancel each other out. I'd prefer not at all, because watching people die for entertainment seems a bit questionable to me.
You are correct, we need to see the news and views from both sides, but there is no reason we need videos of people dying, from either side.
videos of people dying just increases hate on both sides i think you want to see someone die? go join the army and see how entertaining it is then when your the one being shot at and someone is video taping your death i hate it for both sides, i think its sick for anyone to have there death video taped for entertianment
The hypocracy is that Fox doesn't complain about the videos of US marines who film themselves killing insurgents. So according to fox, its ok for the US soldiers to post videos of pretty much everything, but not for others to do the same.
Also people have the right to watch or not to watch them as every video is specific to only that video. Its not like a new's channel where you can watch them by mistake.
I also believe people are free to see the videos and see what war is really like. Why should the government start censoring. Just because Fox is censoring doesn't mean we should have that on the internet.
If Fox was complaining about vidoes that show the hardship and casualty of wars then I wouldn't say anything. Its legitimate. But they are complaining about showing the US casualties only, as if the US soldiers should get some speical treatment above everyone else.
Nobody needs to see those videos, thats why they have the right to CHOOSE! So let the people choose instead.
I have seen no videos of anyone dying on the news, they hate to show fake deaths, they wont show a video of a soldier dying (when its really graphic, they show bombs falling and what not)
