    That must be at the intersection of Fox and Murdoch.

    Most cable news is too ready to follow the other lemmings…

    Of course Fox News is like herding cats, much to the chagrin of the administration… :)

    The key to overreacting depends on whether or not you want your fellow Americans to succeed, if you do, you’re probably a liberal.

    If you already have success and you’re a selfish greedy pig, then you probably hate everything that isn’t a pasty white reflection of yourself, then of course, you want to hear the most convoluted pejoratives about liberals, after all, fox news wouldn’t report it if it wasn’t true, right?

    If you feel angry while watching the news, you’re probably a conservative watching fox news validate another liberal stereotype, without any facts, (like that’s ever stopped them before?)

    I would rather be able to listen to the likes of Walter Cronkite (sigh……….) now there was a news reporter!! Today’s “news” isn’t. All it is is one or another networks sad conspiracy vs another’s. Was stuck at JFK for 10 hours. Heard the exact same “news” (with the exact same misques…) about every 15 minutes on “live” CNN. Same pathetic attempts to turn little things into big conspiracies with no regard for reality. FOX is even worse.

    Poor liberals. They just don’t get it. The latest poll shows they are only 20% of the population, with the remaining 80% being conservative or moderate. Fox News is watched by all three groups. Fox viewers outnumber MSNBC (the admitted far left network) by more than three times. People want to hear the truth, even if it is slanted to the right. If you want proof that Fox is telling the truth, listen to Obama and his team whine. They can’t point out errors, but don’t like the “tone” of the coverage. “Tone” meaning they are being questioned instead of being slobbered over.

    All of the news agencies are bad. You really have to keep one eye on each one to get a handle on what the news really is because each one has its biases. As much as people want to rag on Fox constantly, there is a reason its ratings are increasing while CNN’s are dropping like a rock. There are some stories that they are the ONLY ones reporting. it might be overreactive or sensationalistic, but at leas they have the balls to ask the questions and run the stories and they are breaking a lot of news right now. MSNBC is so far up GE’s backside that they will miss no opportunity to sing Obama’s praises and run an environmentalist angle on every story they can. CNN is so pro-obamacare that you can barely get a single news story right now that they don’t connect to the need for healthcare reform.

    If you want news, turn off your TV. And don’t go to blogs. The best sources – or at least the only to really balance your news reporting – is to read or listen to news agencies from a variety of other countries. They give it without the biases (toward sensation and profit) that most American news agencies live by.

    “Cable News” has become an oxymoron. When CNN began it all, one could turn on the TV at any hour and get a news report - with very little opinion. Now all those networks are full of “personalities” pushing their own agenda and there is very little reporting.

    Of course, it is cheaper to subscribe to a wire service and pay someone to be on air than to send a real reporter into the field to do real research….

    Obviously this cartoon is referring to Fox. But what does “too much influence” mean? For a real leftist it means ANY influence. It’s a common symptom of leftists to think that freedom of expression means freedom to agree with them and anyone who disagrees gets called names.

    The right is under the mistaken impression that they’re right. Still doesn’t explain why they are acting like paranoid imbeciles. Who is gonna vote for abunch of morons who don’t believe in science? Or, think the government has plans to kill people? Or think air polution has no effect on the environment?? We need stable people in the government, not reactionaries..

    I don’t think there’s any single “obvious” allusion here. The strip’s simply referring to cable news as a whole. FOX, CNN, MSNBC - doesn’t matter which way they lean politically, they’re all hysterical propagandists.

    ‘Course, I’d argue none of them have any real political bias. What they really have (and in spades) is corporate bias - as in the corporation that owns the network. Rupert Murdoch is an Australian businessman. He doesn’t give a flying rat’s bleeep about American social conservatism, he just wants to make money. Same goes for Jeffrey Bewkes and Jeffrey Immelt. Politics has nothing to do with it, they’re simply pandering to their bases in order to increase profits. It’s Capitalism 101.

    I get all my news from NPR, and everyonce in a while I will actually watch a few minutes of CNN and sundays I actually read a few op-ed essays.

    OH NO… I heard noises coming out of the sewer drain that’s polluting our stream… Danae was right it must be aliens! Quick call Fox, CNN and MSNBC… only they can get the facts right.

    And round and round we go, and where it stops, nobody knows!

    Are you freaking kidding me? All the government does is to raise the alarm repeatedly to keep us all in butt-puckering terror. They do this to keep people from knowing that whoever is in power is screwing us. Whoever is in power. Get it? Think about it. Republicans/Democrats? It doesn’t matter. They are all about keeping us in the dark to keep us in power. Think about it. Think! THINK! The media is the government’s lapdog. It’s not “Money 411” segment any more, it’s “MONEY 911”. Most are truly blind to this.
