Did people ever actually believe that Fox News was some kind of bastion of conservatism?

If you have been watching in the last few years, you already know ALL news needs to be sourced and proven before accepted as fact. ALL the major outlets have printed garbage. Fox just shows news the opposing side doesn't at times. Truth still needs to be verified.

Of course it does. I generally find myself deep into sources that lead to no where or generally just fake news and watch people gobble it up.

This day in age it's getting harder and harder.

I didn't say nobody got it. Just that people who haven't yet probably never will.

Fox is brilliant in their marketing approach. Trashy looking women with big lips and short dresses, reading the news. What's not to like.

They know precisely the demographic they want to appeal to. Look at the ads....Prostate medicine and Depends.

Did the DNC ban Fox news last week from hosting any primary debates because Tom Perez loves Chris Wallace but hates Hannity and Carlson and wants to ensure that all candidates 'have a fair shake, and I don't have 100% confidence in Fox'?

You have opened my eyes!

Never before did I think that Fox might be just as manipulative as CNN and MSNBC.

NEVER!

We are now seeing eye-to-eye!




I am eternally in your debt. I am humbled. I have spent my decades ion this planet just believing everything Fox tells me but you sir. . . . you sir have opened my eyes and have allowed me to see the light.

I impatiently await the next new, stunning, illuminating, pearl of wisdom that you could bestow upon us.

I'm now going to weep in silence and in humble shame.

Respectfully yours,

DBCowboy.

True, that.

If they are big enough to get their message to you without you searching for them, then they are paid for by someone else.

ALL OF THEM.

The media are a bought-off joke!!

Every liberal who hated Fox News was convinced Fox was conservative

Look at open secret.org and who Fox donates too and you would know it’s split down the middle.

Fox News is like mlb.com. MLB is in charge of every teams’ page. They cater to each market but they will never let the tea, page go off topic

You sound like old school ATS, when people actually believed in the things ATS stands for. These days people just repeat the slogans and then eat up the bullsnip like it's brioche.

Thanks for that little bit of time travel.

In the good old days of ATS, nobody on here was stupid enough to watch the MSM or Fox or television at all...

Just sayin.

Yup I stopped watching them almost 5 years ago.... And noticed about 2 or 3 when they started railroading their most conservative voices out........

It only got exponentially worse when management changed at the top... Every one of those people is a progressive sympathizer.....

None of it is coinsedence.... Its planned, and you'll continue to see people "step down" or be forced out, that refuse to tow that line, or come across ass "too conservative"

I give Tucker Carlson a year...... MAYBE

Rupert gave the reins of Fox over to his two liberal sons.

Who are doing the best they can to screw up Dad's business model.

Let's go broke... for the cause!!!!

I figure there will be subtle and some not so subtle changes to Fox after Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox and the Fox News network. It wouldn't surprise me if some changes are already in the works, IDK. I believe the final date for Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox is in June. Should be interesting in how that will effect Fox News as I'm certain it will to some extent.



The merging of Disney and Fox will reduce the 'Big Six' Hollywood studios down to just the Big Five, and could allow Disney to control as much as 40% of the box office. It will also inevitably result in thousands of job losses from positions at both Disney and Fox that will become redundant after the merger.

Fox, like all the others, is a propaganda machine. I used to trust the other networks more than I did Fox, to some degree that flipped a 180 for me years ago. I don't believe any of them anymore, there is no non-biased news that I know of. Fox seem's to have more accurate reporting than most of the others, although still very biased. CNN and MSNBC's propaganda and skewed news is so far off the deep end and so blatant it's pathetic. I've even started going to RT, Reuters and a couple of others to try and get some balance. Truth be known they're all a big farce.

There's a video made years ago called "Outfoxed", although it's made by a left leaning director, its still very enlightening and well worth the watch IMO.

CNN and MSNBC are right wing media outlets. If you want true coverage from the left then go to this site:

Or this site:

Fox is exceptional in their marketing approach, managed to grow enough to get their message to you, and remains as manipulative as CNN and MSNBC

I havent decided yet if youre trolling this site, or if your view of reality is so skewed you cant parse simple input......

And im not trying to be a dick.....

But theres no way a "news" agency like CNN is rightwing, as much as it pushes its progressive and even treasonous ideas and agenda.......

Good god.......

And motherjones isnt rightwing or leftwing, its straight up propaganda and opinion , no journalism.......

nevermind, if those are your sources, maybe that explains a lot about what you post...........
