Understand this...most every "news" channel or show is STATE RUN MEDIA. No different than "Baghdad Bob" from the Iraq war yelling how Iraq is driving off the US military as bombs fell behind him. They are tools of the dems, liberals and left and KNOWING LIE about the truth. They are no different that N. Korea, Russia, etc. media.

FoxNews, as much as it would be a bad news station if the others were fair, is the only truth out there in that they DON'T blindly support the Obama run socialist agenda of ruling the people and destroying the Constitution.

yes, and while the other stations blindly support obama, and make him out to be the reason why there's sliced bread that can't get work, you have the other side, who says anything they can to OVERPLAY how bad he is, and to demonize EVERY move the man makes...listening to the others, he's an angel, listening to fox, he's frigging satan....

the truth lies somewhere in the middle....ALL "cable news" is crap...it's sensationalist garbage, and anyone who uses it as their only source of information is a COMPLETE fool...

Even so, the American People are entitled to both sides of the discussion or argument on every issue. May God Bless Fox News.

Fox News is to blame for the lack of conservatism in conservative policy. They were instrumental in supporting and passing all of Bush's big government, big spending, anti freedom policies. Unfortunately FOX caters to people who might be considered lower IQ which is why Fox viewers don't realize that Fox is the reason that conservatism always seems to be a hypocritical ideology that says one thing and practices another.

The Truth and Fact is that Fox News is the highest rated and trusted news source on cable television. Fox News Channel out performs and outranks any other news channel, including CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, you name them...Why is this? Simple - Because Fox News gives the American viewer both sides of an issue. MSNBC, CNBC for example have guests on their programs that only give the liberal point of view, without any debate. Fox News provides a forum for debate, because intelligent Americans want to consider both sides of an issue before making up their minds.
It is for this reason that liberals just hate Fox News, because they want Brain Washing programming, without real discussion or dissent. The American People are onto this, and they have spoken, and every single day they render their verdict by tuning into Fox News, The #1 rated cable news source.


Cute, but you need to be more subtle when trolling. Actually, the above statement is so close to the type of rhetoric you hear from neocons, I wasn't entirely sure you were trolling until the last sentence.

This was much less subtle, you need to dial it back or everyone is going to realize...

Thanks, I didn't know you thought I was cute, although I have been told throughout my life that I'm handsome.


You are a first though, as I've been called many things, but I can't recall ever being called a Cute Troll.

Total B.S. ~Haughty liberals certainly have Zero credibility offering the false notion or slightest suggestion that conservatives are somehow less intelligent.

Yet another failed attempt to insult those who do not share left wing ideology. The American people are on to it.

I don't know what the other poster is talking about but there's this:
"Study finds Fox News viewers more misinformed than non-news watchers"

You'll have to Google it as I'm on an iPad and can't get to a direct link to copy and paste.

Fox has higher ratings because it's part if the basic standard cable package that everyone gets when they order cable where other shows require a package upgrade.thats why it's always the only one available in hotels and while you're waiting to have your oil changed.


And after Googling it and finding it, please do... Consider the Source..., and the Motive.

Liberals understand this about right-wing media.

Conservatives live in a media bubble that is termed by many as a form of epistemic closure. They ignore anything that their group doesn't tell them and cannot be reasoned with.

The pool of actual conservatives in the USA appears to be shrinking. So this is not a situation that will last forever. At least not with as much influence as it has for the last few decades.


Gobbly Goop Nonsense.

lol, how does the left explain the ratings?

seems like they are a minority in the country, doesn't it?

maybe they secretly watch fox news and cling to their lib views because the msm never changes their tune?
they know what the party line is and want to see how green the grass is on the other side?

yeah, that's gotta be it.

I love how people will use Salon as a type of news source, there could be nothing further from the truth. Attacking the last nationwide channel that challenges this regime, and even then not as much as they should is the real story. I now get most of my news from the Daily U.K. We can no longer trust any news network in this country. Breitbart.com seems to be the best as far as reporting the facts, with links to the proof in what they report. Everyone should be watching Comcast as they are swallowing up Time/Warner to create the largest propaganda network in the USA, meanwhile charging their customers for the misinformation.

Fox News viewers are not very intelligent provided they actually want conservative policies. All Fox news does is support GOP policy whether or not that policy is conservative, you have to be stupid not to understand that.

"attacking the last nationwide channel that challenges this regime"

seriously?

NONE of the cable "news" networks are actually reporting the news....none of them are providing the american people with truth....they're bombarding people with opinions, based on their own slanted views......oh, and let's not forget the mindless celebrity news, and pop-culture crap, to further your descent into zombieland...so you can watch FOX, and be conditioned to think like them, or you can watch MSNBC, and be conditioned to think like them, or you can watch CNN, and be conditioned to think like them....

how about they all cut the bulls**t, and just report the goddamn news....facts...no spin, no bias, no politics, no partisan hackjobs, no opinion...just the facts, and then let the american people think for themselves....

why can't we have this? because the MSM is bought by the federal government, and is nothing more than controlled opposition propaganda.....i don't understand why people waste their time watching any of them...giving yourself a haircut, one hair at a time, would be a more productive use of one's time, than sitting there, mindlessly absorbing the propaganda on these fake news channels...

it's all a show, don't you get it?

Conservatives and Republicans are no less intelligent than Liberals and Democrats.
Republicans supporting conservative policies are no less intelligent than Liberals Democrats supporting liberal policies.

Making such a statement is the definition of the misguided tactic of Ignorant Rant.

Definition of Ignorant:
1. lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned: an ignorant man.
2. lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact: ignorant of quantum physics.
3. uninformed; unaware.
4. due to or showing lack of knowledge or training: an ignorant statement.

I'm not comfortable with her stating that 'FOX NEWS is Christian.."

seriously..that kind of 'behavior' from a news agency absolutely does NOT even co-side with the word AT ALL.

other than that..

not bad..however.. it's kinda old news to most of us and for me .. just re-enforces what I've already come to know w/out even watching the news or FOX..

I like my data RAW...straight from the source .. and thus far ..ATS is it and has been ..

My personal Fox News nightmare: Inside a month of self-induced torture




Fox and its friends seem to have become so influential and all-encompassing that it is actually creating an entirely separate version of reality in the minds of its most loyal viewers, one that with increasing frequency doesn’t match reality.


Exactly what I have been saying. Fox has it's own version of reality..and all conservatives seem to live there.


Yep, this is what Jon Stewart called people on BS mountain.

They have their own version of reality and are unable to see anything else.

I feel like ATS didn't used to be so fooled by the left/right paradigm. I feel like every time I come on here there is some topic bashing either side of the aisle (for some reason it's usually left bashing right.) ATS was a place to me that was always ABOVE this petty squabbling. It's a real shame.

Salon is the same news source that said the Boston bombers should be an angry white tea party member, just another super-liberal news source with a chip on its shoulder. I love how Fox is still targeted these days even though they are literally THE only channel on television (besides a few religious ones I guess) with a conservative slant - it's like the left isn't happy enough having the rest of cable television at their disposal. Oh well, I guess this is just more of the left's tolerance in action!
