Dhon't!!! (sorry, couldn't resist)

Wow she's a giant 6'4 you must like them really really tall Michael, personally I much prefer to be my height of 5'4, gees she's a metre taller!!!!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurie_Dhue

Oops I mean't a foot taller, wow a metre would turn her into King King :-0

KING KONG, gees I need typing lessons or train myself to preview ;-)

Are you saying you're Hopeless Rivers? ;o) I'm in a punny mood...

>Wow she's a giant 6'4 you must like them really really tall Michael, personally I much prefer to be my height of 5'4

I think she's 6'1", which means she would tower over poor little 5'6" me. So no, it wouldn't be practical ... But since she's married, a millionaire, and a TV celebrity, I don't think my chances with her were real good to begin with.

Actually I found her more attractive before I found out she was so tall. (You can't tell on TV.) 6"1' is a little scary ...

Fox News? I've heard of that channel...

Haven't had the pleasure.

Hey Wax Frog want a light!

Michael your bigger than me, your height is fine, I should be saying poor little me.

Anyway great things come in small packages, I personally would hate being as tall as her, I'm sure it would make me feel like a freak, albeit a goodlooking one ;-)

MP, ROFL! Everytime I see Laurie Dhue and that other FOX woman you fancy, I think of you. If hubby had known she's tall, he would probably have admired her too, being 6'4" himself he told me he was attracted to tall women in his pre-suzie days. I'm the same height you are - also 5'6" and he claims he prefers that height now, even though he has to bend over to hug. Well, at least Bill Hemmer's not leaving FOX, thank goodness. Not that I ever notice him or anything ;)

"Fox News? I've heard of that channel.”

“Haven't had the pleasure."

Maybe you have not heard anyone use that name many people call it fox noise or faux news or fixed news or whatever.

They do know how to hire the beauty queens.

News anchors are a wonderful reflection of human behavior when they announce they are fair and balanced and the spin stops here. Who among us is without bias?

William,
>many people call it fox noise or faux news or fixed news or whatever.<
That's true, a lot of liberals do. I'm ashamed to admit that I used to be a CNN viewer until MP was good enough to recommend FOX News (THANK YOU MP!). Until then, I had no idea there was anything else available except liberal mainstream news sources. Since then I've heard CNN referred to as the Clinton Network or the Commie Network, etc. FOX isn't perfect by any means but IMO it's a great alternative.

Speaking as a person outside of America, I can only say that FNC is the most insipid, unintelligent news resource I have ever seen. Mindless patriotism, hack journalism, style over substance...it has all the hallmarks of the devolution of modern journalism.

And as an Australian, I apologise for inflicting Rupert upon you...

Kind regards,
Greg

I can't believe this post has inspired 14 comments.

Well, 15 now.

Well i am 6'4 there are of course advantages to it lol but bending over a lot sucks.

actually i am 6'5 lol yeah

That's right, Leo, rub it in.

Put it down to the cognitive dissonance generated by the idea that the critical thinking Michael Prescott actually watches Fox News Channel. It verges on the surreal...

Kind regards,

>Put it down to the cognitive dissonance generated by the idea that the critical thinking Michael Prescott actually watches Fox News Channel

Quite the opposite. It's funny knowing you have applied you're critical skills to the plausibility of "makin' it happen". :-)

>So no, it wouldn't be practical...

Well, I'm glad you reasoned that one through. ;-)

About me and Jessica Alba, I thought it through...not practical.

That comment was by me.

Nothing kills a joke so much as forgetting to put your name, and writing you're instead of your. What an idiot.

Yes to be 26 again, ahhh dreaming..

I agree Jessica is attractive but she's just gone out and doubled her breast size to look like me, silly girl!

Practicality never comes into fantasies Ryan ;-)

Sorry, this one has gone over my head. And I'm not as short as MP... ;)

Greg your post summed up all my feelings about FNC, and I'm American. So I am going to re quote your post to drive the point home

I can only say that FNC is the most insipid, unintelligent news resource I have ever seen. Mindless patriotism, hack journalism, style over substance...it has all the hallmarks of the devolution of modern journalism.

I'm not much in to politics and current events (though I used to be) but I must say, from what I've seen from FNC (especially Bill O'Reilly) is a fair deal of agenda keeping. They push a strong conservative agenda and always put the conservative spin on things. Certainly, however, some networks put a liberal spin on things (MSNBC generally) and despite identifying as liberal, I still think this bad. While from what I have seen, the "conservative" networks tend to be more factually inaccurate than the "liberal" networks (and less willing to apologize when they're caught out), I honestly think the idea of "liberal" and "conservative" news is foolish. News, by definition, is neutral and it is merely opinion which can interpret it. I don't really have a problem with a news network having opinion shows, just as long as they're clearly advertised as opinion and not NEWS. I think the line has been blurred in to a nasty mess of gray and needs to be fixed. A successful news network should not look to advance a political position, as FOX News and MSNBC seem to be doing, but a fair debate between both sides using the news and the facts, giving both sides equal air time, despite your own personal beliefs.

But isn't that generally the problem with humans? Confirmation bias out the wazoo.

Oh, and this aside, I think the majority of the talking heads of FOX News are jerks who are trying to be as loud as possible. This of course is not contrasting with conservative, but I find it somewhat frustrating that FOX News doesn't get more docile conservatives.

Having said that, Keith Olbermann can get pretty loud and obnoxious too, but more often than not, he seems to have his rage fueled by something the loud and obnoxious conservatives (as in the specific individuals, not the conservatives themselves) have said that he feels was injust.

Gah. Damn ego.

I stopped watching TV news completely after the Katrina fiasco. Fox, CNN, MSNBC.. they all insult my intelligence.

It's not just the biases (CNN comes the closest to being unbiased IMO, but it's still biased), but the sensationalism as well.

“And as an Australian, I apologise for inflicting Rupert upon you...”

No problem there appears to be a lot of Americans that enjoy being inflicted by the bias of Rupert. Like attracts like and there are a lot of folks that like what fox noise has to offer. Or is it faux news. Or fixed news. At least I am not bias thank god for that.

It is kind of fun but sad to watch how different the networks covered Mc Cain’s trip to Iraq to buy a can of soda at an Iraqi marketplace. One channel puts a positive spin on it how the surge is working and the other cable news talks about the hundred troops guarding him and his wearing a bullet proof vest and two apache helicopters circling the area.

Bet that can of pop was the most expensive can of pop drank on the planet that day and to think he only took two sips. As my mother used to say eat all of your food the Chinese are starving. Who would ever think the Chinese would be the very people that would bail out one of our largest banks. Life can be very funny. Sometimes.

What does this have to do with Laurie? Probably nothing but the mystics tell us that everything is connected in the universe so maybe it does.

Hi Greg,

Guess my joke failed. :-(

The joke was supposed to highlight the humour & absurdity in our outlooks. It sounds funny someone reasoning about something unrealistic like dating a celebrity. (Even though MP was joking).

Like if I started to explain why I don't have a chance with Jessica Alba. I don't need to explain, I so don't have a chance with Jessica Alba. ;-)

Ryan your joke didnt fail, I got it first time and most here probably did also.

I think Greg was still thinking about MP watching Fox, which from what he thinks he understands about him, doesnt make any sense, capise? (Italian for "do you understand?")

Hey I don't know how HOT you are for Jessica but in the likely event your "chance" occured, she'd be leaving the next morning without a second glance and onto her next conquest, if that appeals to you, you may still be in for a chance, she seems pretty easy.

Hey Ryan, I must say she's an unusual choice for a "dream woman!" You should try aiming much higher and suddenly you will become attracted to a real dream woman:-)

To clarify this to avoid misinterpretations!

Think higher, purer and evolve and you will eventually see differently and desire differently, so when you come across the Alba's out there and get to see beyond, it will turn you off and you'll won't settle for "that".

Hi Hope,

Thanks for the comment about my joke. :-)

I'm not saying Jessica Alba is my dream woman. Actually, I just used her because I thought it would work well in the joke.

I'm not really into celebrity culture, so not many famous women were coming to mind. Maybe I should have used Hope Rivers. ;-)

Not trying to kiss up or anything, but isn't MP a quasi-celeb? ;o)

I can't believe how seriously some people have taken this post.

For the record, it was a goof.

I hardly ever watch Fox News anymore. Or any other TV news. I get almost all my news from the Internet.

On the rare occasions when I do watch TV news, I will watch Fox - but only if they are covering real news and not tabloid garbage, which makes up an increasingly large part of their programming.

As for Ms. Dhue, I think she appears on Bill O'Reilly's show once a week, and on Geraldo Rivera's show on weekends. I don't watch those programs.

I do think she's good-looking (albeit unnecessarily tall), but nobody is good-looking enough to make it worthwhile sitting through O'Reilly's and Geraldo's gabfests.

Years ago O'Reilly was watchable enough, but lately he has become a caricature of himself, interrupting his guests, spouting off ignorantly, and hawking his merchandise without shame. About Geraldo, the less said, the better.

>isn't MP a quasi-celeb?

Nah, I don't qualify as even a quasi-celeb. Us paperback scribes are strictly small beer.

I'd rather be small beer than the moldy, half-finished bottle of Yoohoo I currently resemble! ;oD

Maybe I should have used Hope Rivers. ;-)

I'm speechless with your suprising comeback, but all jokes aside thanks for the fake compliment.
