Is This Opinion On Fox Really True?

Recommended Posts

Tbh FOX is no more biased then any other nws station. There just absolutekt terrible at being subtle and going under the radar/. It's impossible for a person to be completely unbiased without stating absolute pure fact. The script writers for the shows have opinions and beliefs on issues and fox's writer(s) just happen to be pretty far right-wing.

I prefer to watch a news channel that has a view on an issue whether it's my view or not it gives me something to think about rather then 45 minutes of wikipedia article fact.

Bro, I don't like the czars either. That's probably the only sane thing that Hannity discusses, getting rid of the czars. I don't care if they're not actually czars. It doesn't make them any more constitutional.

I suggest you go here. The link gives you information on what the czars really do. Take the Afghanistan "czar" for example. He is really a representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan. Appointing such a position is one of the President's constitutional powers. And I rarely heard complaints when Bush appointed "czars". Frankly, were there any complaints when it was done prior to Obama at all? This whole concept of czars is nothing new, nor is it any threat to freedom. In short, it is ridiculous to attack Obama over appointing people to head the various bureacracies and agencies, a practice that I can assure you has been around longer than any of us on this forum.

:wizard: ok, beck and Hannity are definitly republicans- I'll give you that- but O'Reilly and the morning and early evening people are not propagandists. Fox- with the exception of beck and Hannity- are far less biased than msnbc, nbc, and cnn. it is insane to call people propagandists for not going along with everything the president says and does.

Beck is a moron not a Republican. No self respecting Republican would like to be paired up with the likes of him. and do you honestly think O'Reily and the morning people would ever consider siding with a Democrat...on any issue? All of their opinions seem to be the exact same opinions of ever other Republican in the House and Senate.

I like how your avatar says "I have no idea what the hell a socialist is!". Although O'Reilly isn't intentionally partisan, his conservative bias is obvious. O'Reilly claims to be independent, Beck claims to be libertarian, but in the end, they're conservative nuts.

I have always likened most American news channels and imparticular FOX as nothing but televised circuses.

 

If you want unbiased coverage of the world stage watch the BBC, one of the most respected channels in the world, with decades of experience of journalism, if you want entertainment, watch Fox News...brought to you by an entertainment company.

 

But generally all people will be biased in some way and there is no way around it, you just have to find the better sides to watch and make up your own mind.

There's a reason I don't watch any major news station. Because they lean one way or another. However, I find it hilarious that a few people are saying that FOX is blatantly biased, but not mentioning the other party-butt-kissing stations.

 

Is it because they're against your views? Do they say something that makes you uncomfortable because it just might be true, so you lash out at the station, not the view itself?

 

If we condemn one news station, we condemn all who do the same. And, you know? I'd be fine with that.

Yes.

 

That's common knowledge :box:.

 

FOX does not = News.

CNN has been going the way FOX has lately except that they're licking the Democrats to death like little puppies.

 

^_^.

 

I honestly hate the American News Stations now.

I agree with you. Both stations are biased, and to get thw hole truth anymore, you need to watch both 24/7 and interpret it the way you want. :)

Ok, one more thing.

 

I really like both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. They make fun of everyone equally, so I feel it's less biased than the regular news stations :ironic: .

But I heard that Comedy Central is owned by FOX. Is this true? And if so, do you think FOX minds being made fun of?

I'm not entirely sure if this is true, but they probably don't really care. Always good to laugh at yourself.

Murdoch would kill Jon Stewart's career if he had the chance.

 

I am not joking.

 

Comedy Central is owned by Viacom, which is owned by Paramount, and used to be owned by CBS,

No, they're not. They just *sniff*, they just love America SO DAMN MUCH!

 

:wizard:

I think Glenn Beck hacked Adam

Glenn Beck would have started on a batshizzle insane tirade.

No he was too emotional to start that, he loves America too much.

 

Maybe he'd get off the wailing in 5 minutes or so.

 

He would probably tell everybody to get off the phone. Even though this is a forum.

 

All news stations are biased, but Fox is especially biased.

None of the stations have any news anyways, it's sensationalist crap. Fox kisses the republicans' asses, MSNBC kisses the democrats' asses, CNN just talks about whatever young blond girl is missing this week. NPR is the way to go

+1 to this, bro.

But you have to admit, Keith Olberman is hilarious.

I think that Faux news consists of political commentators, which spin the news and comment on it, but some like Billo the clown have the nerve to say they don't spin it;

Anyone can see that Fox isn't a good source of news at all. I'm a conservative and I hate the ignorance and nincompoopery that goes on in those studios. CNN is the same way, just in the liberal direction. I only really trust BBC as a steady mainstream news source.

FOX is a political operation by the far right, and does a poor job of hiding this. It is NOT a news station, it is a political opinion station. Also, it happens to be an opinion that has been tried and failed every time it was used! And people still think it is a good thing!

What people do not understand, is that socialism is NOT the same thing as communism. Communism fails.

Free public education, police, fire departments...those are ALL socialized systems. Countries with socialized medicine pay 1/4 of the cost for 4 times the quality as compared to the US.

/Orly? Hell - I thought it was a comedy network .../

LOL it would be HILARIOUS if it was a bunch of Poes working together!

But, sadly, even if this was true, there are still people who base their opinions off of what they heard on fox :wizard:
