Fox News' fascination with Tim Tebow continues unabated -- but with a new twist.

Prompted by icy-hot hostess Megyn Kelly, longtime sports reporter and pundit Bernie Goldberg suggests in an interview on view below that most people who criticize Tim Tebow for public expressions of Christian faith wouldn't have a problem if he were a Muslim doing likewise.

Granted, Goldberg, who's a more complex thinker than many of his critics acknowledge, thinks many of those who celebrate Tebow's Christian genuflections would hit the ceiling if a Muslim celebrated a touchdown by kneeling as if in prayer and sending his thanks to Mecca. That's an astute observation, as is Goldberg's comment that the divide between Tebow lovers and haters is a microcosm of the current culture war -- which Fox News is doing its damnedest to sustain.

Remember, these are the same pundits who shit all over Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf for expressing his religious beliefs but they're on their knees for Tebow.  They have no credibility whatsoever.


Well done sir.

To me, it's not ever a surprise, no matter what the vermin on fox belch out.

That half a million people watch fox programs at night, taking the malevolent taunting, slandering, misleading and outright lying of the program's reptillian mouthpieces as hard news is what's striking.

Alarming too. A true cautionary tale of what happens when a network dedicated to and run by a tiny but wealthy constituency is in the business of misinforming a large demographic, with the sad consequence being those gullible viewers advocating and sometimes voting against their (and the country"s) best interests.

Also, let's never forget the allmost nightly Muslim baiting these fox hosts have engaged in for 2 decades.

How any body would not see through this is an indictment on how fox dumbs them down.
