Your recent problem (intermittant) may have been solved by clearing cache, but 
the Foxnews videos were NOT watchable for a long, long time.  That was when 
you probably first had the problem.  They were apparently using a flash format 
that was incompatible with the linux flash player.  This cleared up within the 
last year and I have had no problems with the videos since.

So yes, you had a hard failure prior to Foxnews cleaning up their act.  :-)
