  • Fox News Charles Payne Extreme Bias, He should be Fired! 6 comments
    Jul 12, 2009 10:32 PM

    This interview was disgraceful. Charles Payne should be fired! 

    Have a look at this Fox News interview with a socialist that wants free health care in America and the extreme bias pig interviewer employee of Fox News that would barely let the guy get a word in sideways, who only talked about how hard he works, his expensive cuff links and material things he wants, all the taxes he pays and to hell with people that are less fortunate. Instead of talking about what the solution might be. He just wanted to make the guy look like a fool, see the interviewer's email here if you want want to contact Fox News about him, Charles Payne: feedback@foxbusiness.com

    I am a USA citizen. Now, after living in Thailand for 3 years and meeting many people from Europe and Canada who are very happy with their health care system, I understand where this guy is coming from. People in those countries want to take care of each other and have a more community based way of thinking, what we are talking about here is caring about people instead of worrying about how much money the insurance companies and lawyers might loose or a few people that might abuse the system or how much more taxes will go up. The guy's point is if people are healthy they will a have better life and want to work and be productive. But yes, we should be able to construct a system without increasing taxes. The health care system in Thailand is so much more affordable and there are no malpractice suits, medical schools cost much less and no lawyers or insurance companies jacking up the prices on health care.
    I don't know what the solution is, but there has to be a fundamental shift in the way we think about community in America. The way it is now, most people only think about "I got mine and if you are poor or need help, too bad for you, you're an idiot or lazy good for nothing and it is wrong of you to expect help, you should have planned better". Or "I wish there was something I could do, but socialized medicine will ruin America." Well what about all the billions that have been poured into bailouts of American companies that ought to be out of business anyway like GM. Hey if you don't know how to make a profit why should you be in business. There are many ways we could fund affordable health care in America. Plus the millions that are given to charities and religious organizations, where does all that money go? I don't know why this issue is so difficult to figure out except there must be some reason the greedy ultra rich that control America don't want it.

    Author’s reply » Gatxer, I'm afraid you missed the point, yes this socialist guy is extreme but:


    If we would lower costs of medical and dental schools there would be more people working and the costs would be affordable after we get rid of all the lawyers and insurance executives. Plus it would create jobs and stimulate the economy. I don't think medical and dental should be free, this guy is extreme, but it should be more affordable. I work but can't afford to buy self employment health insurance now because of my age at 54, so I have to make a choice, live here in Thailand where medical is affordable or die in the USA of poverty because of the high medical insurance costs and no jobs.


    It just makes me angry that everyone thinks a few lazy bums that feed on the system is a reason not to help others that are good people that need help. And use that as justification to keep the ultra rich selfish creeps in control who care about no one but themselves. People need to wake up and stop believing all the BS the media puts out and solve the problem. It's ignorance, greed, corruption and apathy that perpetuate the problem, I have seen real poverty here first hand where I live in Thailand and most Americans live in a sheltered insulated world oblivious to others. America is suppose to be built on Christan values but it's all BS, America is built on greed and I am fed up listening to the excuses for not fixing the problem.

    <i>"If we would lower costs of medical and dental schools there would be more people working..."</i>


    The Government has no right, nor ability to determine the cost of private institutions... even for doctors.


    <i>"...the costs would be affordable after we get rid of all the lawyers..."</i>


    See "tort reform," and that it has been widely opposed by the many of the people who are also pushing for "Universal Healthcare." Additionally, would this mean there was less lawsuits because doctors were more competent, or less lawsuits because justice was too difficult, too expensive, or simply unavailable to seek.


    <i>"...and insurance executives."</i>


    Eh... the executives make up such a small portion of the healthcare-"crisis" pie, that they'd have no great impact one way or another.


    <i>"Plus it would create jobs and stimulate the economy.</i>


    How? As has been seen in other countries, more affordable healthcare means more people at the doctors, means less doctors for everyone, means more people sick, dying, and waiting long stretches of time to see a physician.


    <i>"I don't think medical and dental should be free, this guy is extreme, but it should be more affordable."</i>


    Agreed... but the battle currently being waged in Washington isn't going to bring that kind of change. The loons on either side are making the debate extreme... and it's going to wind up hurting more than helping.

    Author’s reply » Health insurance executives purposely create policy to stall paying claims and stall approving medical procedures. Their strategy is to clog the system and do everything they can to sabotage doctors and customers. They hire lawyers to write insurance policies that are so complex intentionally making it very difficult to understand what is actually covered in your policy. They are gouging the public and making huge profits paying themselves huge salaries laughing all the way to the bank while people are dying. This is beyond greed, it is pure evil.


    Greedy lawyers have driven up malpractice insurance so high that you practically need to be a millionaire start practicing medicine.


    Why does this issue have to be so adversarial? We have to ask, who stands to loose if we design a medical system that is affordable? But I think it’s all moot point because the people in control who could make a difference love money and believe they are superior human beings “Let Them Eat Cake.”


    I once heard the comment about people dying in Africa “it was not a successful famine” not enough people died. The bottom line, this is all about Darwinism, survival of the fittest. If you have bad luck and cannot afford health insurance, and have a major medical problem, too bad for you, you die. We are not civilized human beings, we are animals.

    Author’s reply » We should have government schools to teach medicine and pay for it with low cost clinics where the senior staff also works and the students can observe and learn while helping sick people with minor emergencies and other minor illnesses. The more complicated cases would need to referred to a regular or more advanced hospital. There are many ways we could design a more cost effective system, but the Republican PR machine has brain washed us. Gezz, I am small business man with a degree in Art and could figure this one out given the resources of government.

    Charles Payne along with a few other Fox News Jackasses are pushing people to the edge. Here's what I blogged about yesterday on Topic.net about Charles Payne and one of his brothers. I am a none white American. So this is not about race. It's about expressing the anger that he and others provoke.

    Fox News Black Keys


    One Of Fox News Black Keys is Charles Payne, who stated today that Obama should not be helping people that want unemployment and welfare, but those that want to work instead. Implying that those receiving unemployment or welfare do not want to work, while he himself rakes in the dough for simply running his f---ing mouth and putting other people down because his waste do not stink. He along with his brother Black Key, Michael Steele, are two very important figures and contributors to Fox News that would serve the country better if they were both dead with a few other of America’s Uncle Tom Cabinet Members. I hope that none of Charles Payne’s family members throughout his bloodline are on welfare or receiving unemployment benefits because I am sure that Charles Payne has enough money to support them all, even though they might have lost their job due to no fault of their own. Secondly, I hope that Black Key refuses to accept social security benefit when his old ass gets older to support his anti-senior attitude. He really thinks that he is better than the average human being because of his TV appearances and anti-Obama attitude. I will say this about that Black Key and that is that every time I see his face he looks good enough to bury as is. And the same goes for Black Key Michael Steele. Maybe tomorrow’s headline will read Fox News has just lost two Black Keys, Michael Steel and Charles Payne were both found dead in a brotherly hug of true republicanism.
