I made the bad mistake of continuing to watch their "Entitlement Series" and my television almost went out the window. They have absolutely no clue whatsoever. Where have these people been living for the past few years? I find it amazing that they don't know anyone that has been unemployed during this "recession". Then they went on to talk about how wonderful Medicare is. Right! Just ask my 82 year old mom how great it is. She has to supplement it with additional insurance out of her measley Social Security benefits just to buy her medication.

The anchors and correspondents at Fox can't be real journalists. Nobody can be that heartless. IMO, they are actors reading from a script written by the corporate thieves.

Gregg, I thank you for your willingness to go into hostile territory and support I said little got done for us that reflected a positive attitude from fox or a bit of compassion. Why should anyone expect anything good . That is my point. End result..... Nothing was gained at all . And never will be as far as fox is concerned..

They are doing it all week too. Rolling Eyes Soon their rating will drop more then they already have. They are finally being seen as the right wing news machine they are. All they do is bash Obama NON STOP! Obamas pint Ireland, well fox news said he was Chugging 40s. Rolling Eyes Nothing but a bunch of POOR hating Racist B@ST@RDS!! Twisted Evil

Only confirms that FAUX is not worth the time of day. Without seeing the interview the network is F-------------------. That is my opinion. You can't convince a network that the only reason the Tea Party exists is through their bias views.

They would have crucified Jesus. No reason ever to mention or use that network ever again. Gives The ED Show and others the information they need to show FAUX bad reporting. I am sure Ed Schultz will say something tonight. He has been on a roll with that network. More good reason to watch MSNBC, CNN and other responsible reporting.

BOYCOTT FAUX!!! Nice try Mr. G. Us long term unemployed will always support you. Your heart always comes through, no matter what others think. YES, I am very happy you have a new job for now. That you care to wage this economic war.


Agreed, thank you 'G' for speaking for the unemployed in a very hostile environment. Having said that, 'G', please seriously consider going to other media outlets, like CNN and MSNBC, there you will get a fair hearing, unlike FOX. I stopped watching them long ago.

We would be better served Gregg going to Ed show instead of Fox!!! I just do not understand going into somewhere they're goal is to destroy your cause and tear down any comments that is contrary to their political arena! Why would anyone think otherwise! Anyone knows they can have two parties with opposing views and they call that fair and balanced?? Right!

If I were to be interviewed on Fox, the vary first thing I would say after that ask me a question would be to say " Are you going to let me answer". If someone has good points they interrupt and cut them off so their message gets cut off. But if someone is stumbling and faltering then they let them talk. Fox knows what they are doing.. That is until I get on there!

I didn't think that interview was any worse than many others I've seen. Gregg was very professional and handled himself really well. Certainly didn't come across as being ignorant or desparate. The end question from the interviewer was uncalled for. Your looking better, etc. That appeared to be a slam for sure, but other than that I've heard this same story all over about UI is not free money, etc.

Thank you for your efforts with the brain dead Faux news crowd and their fat faux journalists, G, I'd be in jail.. I don't know how you can stand it, there is no way they will do anything but try and make unemployed people look bad. Like that crap at the end, 'you look clean' and 'your shirt fits'. That kind of crap is exactly why I could never do their shows, always some insult but no way can they debate your numbers and facts. At least he didn't suggest cannibalism this time as a way to survive.

Thank you G, I admire you for going into the lion den.

Ok I just watched it,now that ignorant AHOL referred to unemployment insurance as feeding from a trough like a pig? Now the unemployed are money hungry pigs?

He heard all the facts and did not give a crap. He had his blinders on from the start and in all honesty G did a great job. Please next time mention the rich tax breaks are being paid for by borrowing money from china. I guess rich folks are allowed steal the entire trough. pig

O boy time to tweet.

Great job Greg and for all those that continue behind the scenes to 'fight the fight' and keep advocating as a group and in their own personal ways for the movement of the unemployed, job creation, and those less fortunate for not having jobs.

I think Greg did great, offering a professional answer to each question that the fox correspondant presented, and it just shows the inept ability and lack of knowledge in such blatant way from Fox reporter in his last comment about JUDGING GREG in how he looks, unbelievable. He not only talked to him previously at some point, which obviously never did full research on who greg is or anything about his past, but then has anacity to basically judge him like a book based on how he was dressed. It wouldn't have mattered as we all know if he dressed with a nice shirt, a suit, sportsjacket button down shirt etc... as he is strong advocate for unemployed and unemployment insurance.

At very least Fox news research team should be prepared in asking right questions, and I think the reporter was caught off guard and couldn't handle with how Greg used FACTS, numbers, and track record/history of the TRUE REALITIES of the unemployed in today's market in US.

Once again, if Im wrong on somethign, I have no problem admitting it, but we're dealing with those that could care less, or wont' admit their 'small minded' thinking and lack of understanding. Fox is a joke, a news station that is supported and owned by republican and one sided way of thinking in life, but it is a start in right direction as we need educate and work together with all possible outlets, politicians, and possible state legilstatures in charge of adopting bills and influencing those in charge.

Keep fighting as Oprah W. always says for our cause and doing the right thing.

well, good point I suppose there, gues that can kind of cross a viewers mind, however let's not stoop ourselves down to lower levels that are out of normal actions, cockiness and lack of knowledge is to be expected as proven track record unfortunately exists, so that in itself is bad enough, let alone how a certain individual handles himself/herself or looks. If they have a health spending acount package or incentive health program, people on that level in worksite sector man ytimes are unmotivated, lazy, and just look at bottom line of things, acting short term rather than long term or solution solvers.

Hopefully we can all come together amongst all legislatures and news media folks and do right thing for long term unemployed and with educations grants and job creation. It's not like Greg and many others of us can just go back to school and get 'retrained'.
