Basically, the millionaire Republicans are the ones who worked their asses off to earn their money, or spent a lot of time and stress making the right moves to get rich.

The millionaire Democrats are mostly the ones who lucked into it or inherited it, or have been so rich for so long that it won't affect them to lose a few million. In other words, the people to whom the value of a dollar is an arbitrary, abstract concept.

IF it is true( after all it's Fox) it would be a big deal, but in noway would it rival Watergate! And I doubt GE would make a tenth of what Halliburton did off the war in Iraq.

Haliburton is making money because they provide a service to this country. Yeah, the Government could probably save a killing by upping our military and having us handle it all, but that's the choice that was made.

GE would benefit for political reasons. Plain and simple. They push this bill, they use their job as "News Reporters" to force an agenda down peoples throats, whether that agenda is good for America or not, to make a lot of money. Of course Fox is going to report it. There are two reasons, one, they won't make anything off of this bill being passed, two because this is a liberal agenda...and Fox is the conservative network.

Haliburton - Making money because we are willing to pay them to do so.
GE - Making money because of a political move.

Two very different scenarios. I doubt that Haliburton has near the clout as GE/MSNBC. But go ahead and deflect away. That is the liberal way of doing things. Nothing to see, nothing to hear.

No Halliburton is making money because they got a no bid govt. contract to "rebuild" a nation we destroyed. But I digress. So there are only two ways Americans can get their news???? I haven't seen anything more on Fox about it either. If this story is so big it's a wonder no one else picked up on it. Oh that's right there are only Conservative, and liberal media outlets.

Who let that happen? The Federal Government. Nobody reported on that, that I'm aware of. Haliburton isn't the only contractor in Iraq right now either. They're the biggest player, no doubt, but not the only one.

Which media outlet do you consider middle of the road? It's not going to be any of the major networks. 90% of the problem with the news today isn't what's being reported, but how it's being reported. Fox News first reported this whole scandal. Should they try to pound this into our head every single day?

I agree it's difficult in this day to find an unbiased media outlet. I primarily get my news from C-Span, BBC, and PBS. But you better believe that if this story had legs Bill and the boys at Fox would be pounding into our heads every day!!!!
