Cusack At War With Fox News

JOHN CUSACK is embroiled in a war of words with journalists at Fox News after he called for a "satanic death cult" to be set up outside the broadcasting giant's headquarters.
The High Fidelity star made the barbed comments on his blog after he was asked his opinion on the proposal to build a mosque at Ground Zero, the site of the former World Trade Center in New York.
He wrote, "I am for a satanic death cult centre at Fox News HQ and outside the offices of (former U.S. Representatives) DICk Armey and Newt Gingrich - and all the GOP (Grand Old Party/Republican Party) welfare freaks."
But his remarks have sparked fury at the news channel, prompting a scathing article on its website and damning comments from behavioural experts.
Psychiatrist Dr. Carole Lieberman tells Fox411, "His provocative tweets could easily incite a rabid fan to commit violent acts against Fox News headquarters and others he names. Fans could not only be influenced because of their devotion to Cusack, the man, but also because of their love for one of the characters he plays."

Cusack could have chosen his words a little more carefully;however, I totally understand the intent of his comment. How dare Fox news attack him and have a psychiatrist suggest that Cusack's comment could be used to justify an attack. May I remind FOX news that there constant name calling of the abortion doctor in Kansas marked the doctor for slaughter. Fox has done the same thing with the Islamic Center in NYC. The comments which have been made by Fox pundits have created hate for an entire group of people, the Muslim faith. Bush, himself, said the Muslim faith was a decent and honorable faith; it is the extremists/terrorists we fight. I find it hypocritical...yet quite typical...of Fox to respond to Cusack in such a way when they are on 24-7 spreading lies, misinformation and hate. Anyone who believes these phony hypocrites at FOX is completely out of touch and incapable of distinguishing fact from fiction. The masses should be protesting the Fox headquarters, demanding the end to this network. I am so sick of Fox and conservatives manipulating the name of God and holding themselves up as examples of Christians when they KNOWINGLY lie, misinform and deceive their viewership. Moreover, it is unforgiveable for Christians to align themselves with this propaganda and simply accept the lies as truth. The Bible tells us to study to show ourselves approved. Clearly, the viewers of Fox have not studied the Bible, or the would not support such deception and such hate talk. Those Christians who believe in these liars and support and believe the lies are suspect Christians. I am truly disturbed by this active participation in lies and hatred by supposed Christian. Use your mind, and STOP relying on a network which funds Republicans with a million dollar party donation to be the providers of "Fair and Balanced" truth in journalism. FOX news is a disgrace to democracy, and SHAME on any person who is claims to believe in Christianity who further the lies. FOX is not God. I suggest Christians spend more time following God's Law than the law of this propaganda network. They are the McCarthy of this generation. The great fear for this nation is FOX news' unending lies and propaganda.
