Cal Thomas is joining us -- daily buyers -- joining us via Skype from and who knows where wherever he's hiding today I don't know how good to see if accuse you sense a Dick Cheney abandoned his bunker on taking an overnight -- remind you all the right man to being a Dick Cheney on the parents so many ways.
-- I just hope he's not there with you that would only total of rumors on our -- that were -- straight -- -- very glad to hear and so -- cal.
-- you don't believe the media has covered the question of Mitt Romney and his Swiss bank weekends in a fair and balanced way why so.
Well John and insists the older the media have played tennis I'm going on really since Herbert Hoover Republicans are rich therefore -- evil they've taken money that should be yours so we're gonna redistribute degree distributed through government program.
Other out of touch with you they can't verify with you should instead be -- him you know the media ought to be promoting that on the way to get ahead is to wanna become richer at least more wealthy and and you are right now.
I don't care of Mitt Romney has a Swiss bank account.
Whether he does -- he doesn't.
Doesn't contribute to a single job in America I give -- liberal blogger today is reported to need to Washington examiner saying that they don't Hitler had me I'm.
I disrespecting job so -- must be guilt by association I guess -- -- were exterminated to gays and Jews.
I mean this is the kind of crazy stuff that you're used to in a presidential.
Campaign but look.
-- people who are invested in the stock market they are balanced mutual funds.
They have they have consider an overseas accounts it's not some big deal.
And even if he were able to and wanted to release all of -- financial records was was spanking counts.
And everything else it wouldn't make any difference and immediately because he's still rich and must be destroyed or at least taxed to death.
Cal bear all liberal -- is Barack conservative bloggers they in the modern world of the media there is conservative media did this conservative mainstream media I mean we we I don't think we at fox could say we all the mainstream media with a most watched cable news channel.
In the world right now that makes -- pretty mainstream.
-- one -- so people get what they want don't they don't we just live in an echo chamber and isn't it equal on the left and right.
That's a -- You've identified a problem when I was growing up in the business and her three broadcast networks and people to knit together information from one or more of them but mark my complaint here is not so much should have done the media are questioning Romney as part of their function I just wish -- -- -- Why doesn't the media after those things we're gonna have full disclosure for Mitt Romney why not full disclosure for Barack and Michelle Obama in the last campaign or in this one for that matter you talk about fair and balanced this is unfair and unbalanced when the media only -- Romney and don't require by the same standard full disclosure from the president and mrs.
-- let me -- I'm just a very involved rice in here cal Bob dude do you think that and that's a fair point that there is still a different standard.
Generally speaking in the media in the way that Democrats are covered and Republicans are covered it when it comes to presidential candidates.
To be completely -- -- say I think Fox's that a pretty good job of that of rebalancing.
What -- in traditionally I think it's pretty clear there had been a liberal bias in the media really do you think that's a fair statement.
And clearly there are -- liberal media now they're more conservative media -- and and and -- things have gotten to -- a much more balance point.
I do very much worry however about what you just said which is people tend to like to listen to what they tend to like to listen to -- and say you get your own -- No idea simply reinforcing reinforcing reinforce -- gospel and you lose the ability to listen.
To the other side that I hate aren't so I don't agree I message should.
He then 20 all the liberals go out that explore the conservative I'm always so it's a good idea why do you wanna listen to just somebody who's actually you'll views or whatever why don't you go.
And read what the other side essentially that it's gonna make all of us better informed.
Well I couldn't agree more our but but look here here's the problem and this is that the explanation on fox for years.
Conservatives complained about what was then the mainstream media they didn't listen I didn't want to listen.
They didn't wanna hear our points of view -- and our our faith they hated our politics they hated everything about -- so they they stereotype -- artists as they paid attention at all so fox comes along.
And gives carrying to those used or not seen or heard or treated with respect on the broadcast networks and in the major newspaper now all of a sudden -- is evil.
For giving people what they want I would like to see more liberals Washington talks our -- -- fox viewers are going over to the other side renowned and it used to be -- -- Until money chases its narrow cast junior right let's just reinforces our previously held points of -- Great points cal except fascinating debate and you know -- if everybody -- read and listen to everybody else a little more often -- -- with them -- probably be in about a world.
Not especially good -- -- -- -- wanted -- -- positive I look at Hackensack and play.
Cal Thomas wonderful to have you as a way to yeah time in the bunk up you can speak Al on FOX News Watch.
