There are many people I respect on here, so it seems very odd to me when they go so off base with critiques on their own writings.
"Fox tells us news that no one else mentions."
You know why they report news that no one else mentions?
LOOOOOL! This is just two easy.
Drum roll please!
Its freaking because they along with other rightwing "news" outlets are the only ones originating those stories. And that is because they are the ones making them up!
The name of the Republican game is mud slinging.
There are so many facts that don't support their cause they have to resort to muck dredging to have anything to say.
If the right adhered to the old axiom that if you got nothing nice to say then say nothing at all...why they'd be as silent as a gay guy breaking wind!
You libs cant stand it that millions of people love Fox. So funny. And the childish way of spelling it " Faux " is especially laughable. You need to watch " You've Got Mail" where the little boy yells out " It's spelled F O X".
Fox tells us news that no one else mentions. Big obama lies every day. Now we find out that his illegal uncle who was arrested for DUI awhile back was quite well known to obama. At the time, the WH said they had never met. Now it turns out they had actually lived together. Thanks Fox News for telling us the truth. What a bunch of obama liars.
While the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal is conservative, the newspaper's news pages are liberal, even more liberal than The New York Times. The Drudge Report may have a right-wing reputation, but it leans left. Coverage by public television and radio is conservative compared to the rest of the mainstream media. Meanwhile, almost all major media outlets tilt to the left. Media Bias Is Real, Finds UCLA Political Scientist
By Meg Sullivan December 14, 2005
I don't think there is one single news source that does not come with a bias. Furthermore, I think that most outlets come with a left slant these days, so its funny to hear those on that side, rail against FOX. If you disagree, enlighten me with a news source that is above reproach. Sadly, that's the way it is now, preaching to the converted.
The majority of Americans (60%) also continue to perceive bias, with 47% saying the media are too liberal and 13% saying they are too conservative, on par with what Gallup found last year. This is from Sept 2011
"Two-thirds of core Fox News viewers identify themselves as Republican, and 94% either identify as or lean Republican." (Gallup)
Fair and balance?
What do we call someone who moans about “hyperbolic ad hominem rants,” then, a scant 11 minutes later, calls others “just bomb throwing morons”?
Do you think it is wrong to employ "hyperbolic ad hominem rants"?
And since you admit that Fox "leans right," I guess we agree that Fox isn't "fair and balanced."
You say I deflect if I bring up cbs fraudulent reporting of a supposed news story, yet you claim Fox reported the Obama was not born in the US..and that is not deflection. Please show me where fox reported that as fact, I can show where CBS reported it as such
Don't take that as an insult, it was not meant that way. I don't dislike you and figure we would have some laughs over a beer somewhere, that is why you frustrate me so, there are others on here that are just bomb throwing morons and they KNOW who they are, I don't consider you one of them but you are absolutely unable to get past the knee jerk reaction to anything conservative or so it seems to me.
It seems to me you cannot get past the way you FEEL about things to be able to articulate WHY and provide solid evidence that it is indeed the case.
THATS BS. but you are consistent with your straw men. I have often attempted to get you to DEBATE why I on the right am somehow against you on the LEFT, you will never do it. You engage in hyperbolic ad hominem rants that shed no light on anything, The door is always open if you wish to discuss FACTS and why I am so wrong.
"Fox leans right, NBC,MSNBC, CNN NPR ABC and CBS lean LEFT. Sounds fair."
Lets be fair and acknowledge that if someone or some group doesn't tow the entire rightwing party line and adhere to it rigidly then its considered left wing.
"remember when Fox presented a faked document showing the president had lied about his National Guard service oh wait that was CBS"
Sorry deflecting isn't going to work on this topic.
Its a pretty hard truth that is being demonstrated when you have to have a law thrown out in order to broadcast your "fair and balanced" "news" the way you want.
And no less than a law that forbids false and misleading reporting.
I wish Obama would push for a law like that in this nation.
Can you imagine the outrage the right would vomit forth! HAHAHAHA LOL!
It'd be so fun counter that outrage with a simple question.
If you're not gonna lie then why you so mad bro?
Fox leans right, NBC,MSNBC, CNN NPR ABC and CBS lean LEFT. Sounds fair.
remember when Fox presented a faked document showing the president had lied about his National Guard service oh wait that was CBS
He didn't say anything about Fox News being banned but that Canada was trying to make sure their news agencies keep to the facts.
"Canada's Radio Act requires that "a licenser may not broadcast....any false or misleading news." The provision has kept Fox News and right wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom."" (Huffington post)
So it isn't that they ban Fox News but any news organization that behaves in a manner not consistent with their regulations.
And Fox News is the freaking epicenter of that crap.
LOL! Just go dig into why they were trying to get a law in Canada that deals with only allowing factual reporting in the news media thrown out.
They wanted to take their brand of cesspool "journalism" up north and thankfully the Canadians are smarter than that.
At least some of them.
