Tyler Well, I did not discover the greatness that is Kurt Vonnegut until just a few years back. And he has had a much stronger impact on me than the (not so) sly Fox, although my hatred for them is strong. They represent everything that is wrong with our corporate media system.


Rebecca Newhouse fortunatly the printed word will live on for future generations to discover and fox news will go by way of the not so humorous joke it is.


Jeremy morons


Madeleine It's actually spelled "Faux News." Fixed it for ya!


Jean Paul LeFrey Who listens to Fox? Morons.

Mikela A shame that Goodreads features a political rant against Fox News rather than something interesting about Vonnegut himself. Surely there must be something out there, perhaps an interview!


Kyle Sebree This was a back-handed attempt to slander an author who rattled cages of the Lockheed-Martin controlled propaganda of Fox News. He made his stance clear on Iraq and the foreign entanglements of our country, as well as mocking the intelligence of Bush.

Obviously that rattled some cages and this was their little jab back at him. What the smarmy a$$holes don't understand is that people will be reading Vonnegut's work LONG after Sean Hannity and Bill-O are long forgotten. This is coming from someone who is right of center.

Mustafa Ahmad So Fox News will broadcast nothing but praise for the charlatan Jerry Falwell, but trash "despondent leftists"?

The so-called "liberal media" was respectful of Falwell after his death, but Fox doesn't even have the balls to give an OUNCE of respect for great geniuses like Kurt Vonnegut? These daft, witless bastards should show some shame.

AFTER LIVING IN EUROPE IN THE 1946- WITH THE LOSS OF LIVES TOO COUNTLESS TO REVIEW, STALIN, KRUSHCHEV FILLED IN FOR GOOD OLD MUSTACHIO??? SO GLAD TO HAVE YOUR VIEW FREELY EXPRESSED, BUT HORROR TODAY-WILL FREE VOICE STILL BE FOR EVERY AMERICAN... VONNEGUT IS FASCINATING IN MANY WAYS FOR HIS BILLY PILGRIM, AND GENRES-SF, BLACK COMEDY, AND SATIRE??? WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO ACCEPT THAT THE BOMBING OF DRESDEN WAS PRESENTED TO HERR HITLER AND HIS RUTHLESS MILITARY, PROPAGANDISTS, HIGH TECH FIRE POWER/SLAVES FROM ALL OVER EUROPE AND EASTERN EUROPE ETC... BECAUSE HITLER WAS GOING TO BOMB ENGLAND AND OTHER AREAS... ALSO, SOME CONCENTRATION CAMP ESCAPEES WANTED THE USA AND ALLIES TO BOMB AUSCHWITZ TO STOP FURTHER GENOCIDE... WHEN I LOOK AT VONNEGUT, I UNDERSTAND HIS WRITING AND THEMES... ACTUALLY FIND HIS WRITING INTERESTING AND IMPELLING... OLD LADY
