    I suggest all you Fox News fans contact Fox News and protest.

    You may have to see it to believe it, so here’s a video of a medical doctor (Dr. Manny Alvarez) on Fox News questioning an astrologer about astrology and health. This is often a part of astrology readings, but there is also a field of medical astrology:
    http://www.foxnews.com/video2/video08.html?maven_referralObject=3451453&maven_referralPlaylistId=&sRevUrl=http://www.foxnews.com/index.html

    The doctor is not just doing something Fox News wants him to do, because twice at the beginning, he says, “I love astrology; I just love astrology.” This affirms what I say all the time, that spiritual deception is not intellectual deception.

    With a few exceptions, Fox News has become the National Enquirer of 24-hour news networks. Many of their "news" segments are little better than segments of Inside Edition. Fox News is mainly difficult to watch in the morning. Sometimes I think the collective intelligence of Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and Gretchen Carlson is less than the average speed limit. In my opinion Gretchen Carlson is the absolute worst of the three.

    The few good news shows on Fox are Special Report, Fox News Sunday, the Fox Report, and maybe the new Glen Beck program. The O'Reilly Factor and Hannity are good shows if you want to have high blood pressure. On The Record w/ Greta Van Susteren is little more than gossip. I put her in the same category as Nancy Grace.

    When I first started watching FOX several years ago, it reported the news in a balanced fashion, much more than CNN. Over the years it has degenerated into a 24 hour magazine show. I do not turn on the news to see the latest update on famous people, or watch a long running kidnapping or murder. It is almost as bad as the Today show on NBC. When I turn on the news, I could care less about seeing people singing and dancing in the streets of downtown New York.

    What is so sad is that CNN reports much more news than FOX, although with their usual liberal slant. I get a lot of my news from the Drudge Report.

    Not sure what you all would expect from the conservative news channel, right now there just isn't much conservative news to report.

    They switched to the magazine style long before Bush started his gradual decline.

    While FOX is hardly a legitimate news source, I have no problem with them or anyone broadcasting whatever they want. If I don't want astrologers I turn the channel or go online to read people complaining about what everybody else is doing.

    I just saw Glen Beck tell Joel Osteen how grounded Osteen was in the gospel. I WILL refrain from responding to the total lack of accuracy about that comment.

    Not much to chose from in the way of news anymore.

    I was watching until Osteen came on. I figured no good could come from that.

    The only true journalist left is CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

    If you look at all that NewsCorp owns and produces, its easy to see that they have no actual beliefs whatsoever other than whatever will get the next dollar.

    Why expect their news channel to be different?

    you all object because it doesn't work or because it is evil?

    Yes, which?

    Those of you who believe that we live in a mystical magical universe in which God micro manages every hair on every person's head and the vector of every sub atomic particle . . . those of you who do NOT believe that God gave us a real, physical universe that exists apart from his micromanagement . . . is astrology a working system that is evil because God doesn't want us to use it? Or is it wrong because it produces wrong and/or sinful results?

    Those of you who believe that Satan is the god of this world . . . please explain to me why Satan could not have devised astrology as a working system that he uses to instruct his people.

    Well, Glenn Beck is a Mormon so his discernment on the gospel is nil.

    Woops, just noticed that Tiny Tim said this!

    Well, I can tell you that I thought Christians loved Fox News. I heard about it over and over from Christians -- how they would not watch CNN (watching CNN was practically a sin) but they would watch Fox News. I did not have cable TV until last May.

    I was unaware that Fox News had fallen into disfavor.

    Still, any news network that promotes astrology should not be calling itself a news network.

    I don't understand this part very much.....Can't figure your position....

    I believe satan is in control, and holds the deed today, lest he couldn't have tempted the Lord with it, way back there. And I think he did bring astrology, and weegee (sorry) boards and Tarot cards in along with sex and the Beatles to destroy our youth.... Well maybe not the Beatles.

    Apologize for being prolix. Maybe the people who consult astrology get useful results.
