    FOX is no more a good news show, than you are a reasonable and moderate poster on these message boards!!

    I always thought it was the tarted up women in short dresses, long (usually) blonde hair, and … well, you get the idea. But it isn’t journalism.

    We have a phrase for people like you: “Willingly ignorant”.

    Check Newshounds.us (“We watch Fox News so you don’t have to”) and ‘Crooks and Liars’ for info on the latest screeds from Fox. As the de facto media source for the right wing, it’s my opinion that Fox News has been the number one reason for the political divisiveness that has resulted in the disastrous policy decisions of the Republican Party.

    Things are politically divisive for several reasons. The biggest one is the narcissist in chief occupying the White House chipping away at America’s Constitutional liberty a as each day goes by. Libs stand by and let’s it happen. Republicans strive to prevent Obama from getting away with it.

    Watch (or better yet read) “Farenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, and then watch “Fox and Friends” in the morning. The concept of three people in a semicircle agreeing with each other and the viewer with no dissenting voices is a very powerful method of propogand.
    The “lap dog media” is also one of their inventions. Not counting MSNBC (which I don’t recommend watching due to bias as well), there are more conservative voices and opinions shown on the other networks than there are liberal. It was during the Bush administration that FOX became a Lapdog to the President, and defended him while the other networks showed the failings and criticisms of his policies, the same as they do to Obama today. FOX was the first network to PROMOTE a single political ideology, and if anything opposing that were shown on another network, no matter how inconsequential, they blew it up into the “Liberal Media Attacking America”.

    Which Constitutional liberties have you lost due to Obama’s chipping?

    MSNBC is “commentary”, not proclaiming itself “news”. I watched a bit of Fox- their “news” program, not their self-identified “commentary” or “entertainment” folks, and proved for myself once again that Fox viewers ARE the most mis-informed folks in America. Those “righties” always bringing up Pravda need to look at their “fabulous frauds from Fox”, it’s much worse.

    PBS is not liberal. It’s barely middle of the road. And it’s one of those private-public funded partnerships the GOP should love, since they used to support that kind of thing…

    And Fox News just rehired Karl Rove, who has been wrong about just about everything for eight years, which just about says it all. Though to be fair, it’s been hard to be conservative and correct lately, since conservatism launched into it’s anti-reality mode. Surprising how often reality turns out to be real.

Well, guess what? Ain’t workin’. You wouldn’t know fair and balanced from YOUR news channels or if it bit you on the butt!

    No because you fail to list a single “Constitutional liberty” you’ve lost.

    There are wonderful, kind, and intelligent people who believe Fox is the only news source they can watch because Fox is pro life, pro gun, anti gay, pro military involvement, pro Christmas, anti mosque, and generally conservative on all of the social issues that is important to them. Fox is, to many, a “Christian” news source and therefore the only one to be trusted. To insult their viewers is to entrench them.
    Just because people hold the views I list above, does not mean they are evil though many liberals and moderates feel some of these views are unconstitutional. Fox viewers believe it the liberals who are unconstitutional.
    It has been my own experience that by providing information from objective sources that are not viewed as socially corrupt, one is able to open the minds of people who already like you. This is why they are the most watched news channel. In a world where people would rather watch the inconsequential lives of “reality”…. i can’t say stars… performers, the news takes a back seat to some pretty awful things. Too many people feel helpless to make a change and watching pundits cover the exact same topics hour after hour just makes it worse. Fox tells people what they want to hear and conservative pastors and job environments reinforce it.
    There are many great news sources – NPR, PBS, BBC, the websites for numerous newspapers and magazines to name a few, but even those are scorned by people who are not aware of Rupert Murdoch’s history, some of his co owners, and who refuse to notice when Fox tells a lie they never correct.
    Fox is a lobbying arm for Rupert Murdoch who is currently pursuing his goals by supporting Republicans who, grateful for his help, bend over backwards to be useful, just as politicians do in England and Australia.
    Do not be angry at Fox’s viewers, educate them when you can, and be patient with them when you can’t.
    Respectfully,
    C.
