Help me remember when people were talking about "freedom fries" and why? Now you want to think of France as our BFF? My oh my, how times change.

Talk about changing times.... German Chancellor Angela Merkel was there. The French would be speaking German if it wasn't for us.

And many of them know that and appreciate what we did for them that day on Normandy Beach. I'll never forget sitting across the dinner table a few years ago with a couple, both French schoolteachers, who hosted me as a guest in their home. The husband proceeded to tell me, with tears in his eyes, how indebted he felt to our country and how grieved he was by the loss of so many young American lives that day in 1944, but as he said, if not for them and that day, France would not even exist. Also, on the train ride from Paris to their home, the group I was with were "entertained" by a rowdy bunch of young fellows who appeared to be in a party mood and imbibing in a few drinks from the bar. Come to find out they were French navy men who were just coming home from a tour of duty. After exchanging our stories, including why we were there, they proceeded to tell us how much they loved Americans and went so far as to present to our tour guide the flag that they had brought home with them. It was a very emotional experience. I cannot help but feel that we let down our French friends by not having more of an official presence at yesterday's event in Paris.

people who post for the first time are usually on some path to either gain knowledge or compliment what they have experienced in TV.

When the very first post is one like this it smells very much like bait to me.

They saw the comparable headline story on Drudge report this AM and were inspired to do some trolling!

OP, Welcome to TOTV. I like posters with opinions different from mine. Stepford seniors add little to a discussion.

Every successful business has a business model that appeals to it's target audience. It appears to me that the Daily Sun is doing quite well .

And does anyone believe that AL Jazeera does not have an agenda?

I know this is off topic but is counterpoint to a given post.

Me, I will take made in America along with my ability to seek more than one input and then reach my own conclusions.

Like I do not eat food products made in China I do not accept a middle eastern news agency for information about what is going on here at home.

Recently discovered that Centurylink is carrying OAN (One America News Network) Channel 209 in it's cable line up. They report news and identify if a program is political. There is always BBC World News too for good reporting.

Don't blame the Daily Sun.
They just take whatever comes across on the selected news feed and place it where ever there is space between the ads to fill in the empty spots.
Just like most others modern newspapers.
PS I read it and enjoy it every morning.
It is what it is.
