I don't know whats worse.. the fact that fox news openly admits they report news they know could be false or all of their failed comedy series

seriously though, this is sad, real sad...and whats sadder is that people will still continue to watch fox news..religiously

I believe the term you are looking for is wrong, which is the point you are trying to make.
Look, when your liberal friends will not allow other to speak because they will not shut and let others get a word in, their mic needs to be cut.

If you would ever watch it live instead of little clips from your favorite liberal site, you would know that once the guest calms down, he still allows them to make their point so your point is moot.

Stop living up to your screen name.

MSM in general is A SCAM.

and we are powerless

Perhaps there's some humor to be found in the fact that MySpace, which is owned by Fox parent company News Corp., censors links to any websites ending in .info. Perhaps...

This is no suprise to me whatsoever. Faux news is nothing more than a governmental, corporate sponsored mouthpiece.

Care to provide some evidence or is this just your faulty speculation.

Fox News is one of the few organizations which actually give both sides of view on a given topic. On almost every story they have someone from the left and the right.

well i thought that most of the network was owned by the bush family,

Does anyone here feel there is a national TV news source besides C-Span that has any integrity or maybe even a modicum of real investigative journalism? xt

Hi life,

Are any of the alphabet news agencys nonbiased, not out in left field somewhere, etc. including BBC, not IMHO. Fox News is constantly featuring the latest dead or missing white blond girl who was probably molested. I am completely mistified why this type of (local) story should be national news!

But in terms of fair and balanced political coverage please check out this Huffington Post evaluation "Fox News Gives Most Balanced (political) Coverage

Fox News Channel's coverage was more balanced toward both parties than the broadcast networks were. On FOX, evaluations of all Democratic candidates combined were split almost evenly -

Again, I can find lots of fault with Fox but I don't see how the other major networks are better!

Source (Pew Charitable Trusts Project for Excellence in Journalism comprehensive study that looked at 1,149 stories from 17 leading news sources):

Tone of Coverage for Gore & Bush

Valence l Gore l Bush

Positive 13% 24%
Neutral 31% 27%
Negative 56% 49%
Total: 100% 100%

Wow, The "liberal" media was all for pushing the liberal candidate...what an agenda!

The myth of the "liberal" media thing was found out long ago, everyone in the industry, at the academic level, and with a brain that gets used knows this. What amazes me is how many continue to keep it alive when there is absolutely no solid evidence to support it. But then I suppose if the devil himself were a self proclaimed conservative republican and asked his followers to jump of a cliff, they would trip over one another to make the fall.

The problem we have today (and it's been this way for a loooong time), is that most, if not all, of the big media companies are big corporations. They have shareholders to keep happy, who are often other big corporations who pay the incumbent government large amounts of money in "campaign donations".
So, they then report non-events, which soccer star is sleeping with whatever model that week, which pop starlet was caught snorting coke etc, all the crap that keeps the wrongdoings of their shareholders and the shareholders friends out of the public eye.
Investigative journalism is all but dead in the mainstream press but the slack has been taken up by the independent online journals.
I'd go as far to say that we now have the situation where the big media corporations are influencing and directing the path news stories take, rather than just reporting the facts. Sure, editorial staff will always try to inject their opinions but this should not stop them from reporting the facts of a case.

So many of the large media corporations have been caught out printing bare faced lies so many times in the past that I now have little or no confidence in anything they report, preferring to troll around the web in an attempt to get to the bottom of a story.

All I know is a big portion of news companies pay packets come from the government. The government have ultimate say in what is aired and what isn't. Ever been watching something then it cut out, but the power did not? Well that is people training on how to remove shows people are currently watching. With everything being technology these days people can follow your every move and restrict you from certain things without you even knowing why. So it is this simple.
Government funds news
Government chooses news
News companies oblige.

That is why everything you see on the majority of news channels is crap that no one gives a # about. You don't see them showing the massive giant skeletons they're digging up all over the world, otherwise it would question our religions. Now when the government has their foot in religion as well they don't wont this.
So to keep everything how they want it they pay for the news. Anyone that watch's the news everyday is being brainwashed into not thinking about other things/learning about other things. News and general television has moulded general civilisation this way for years by giving the people what they think is real when in actual fact it is far from real.

As an experiment next time your TV on just watch how quickly you start forgetting about everything else and focus on what you are watching. It is amazing that the frequency that runs through TV sets can have such unwilling control. Anyway good post. Hopefully less people will watch the news and start opening their own eyes and thoughts up to everything else going on in this world.

keeping to the topic:

I have to say I don't trust ANY of the major news networks whole heartedly.
Often times I hunt alternative news web sites just so I can
corroborate the stories on the MSM.

One of those news outlets I frequent is the Aljazeera News
Agency (English version). NOT because I'm a terrorist!!!
But because most times I get more reliable info from them
than I do the MSM.

Now I'm paranoid that the gubment has me on a watch list
just cuz I go there to get info. I'm NOT a terrorist !!!
I'm just there to try and corroborate what the Real American
Terrorists ...... errrrrr, ummmm, I mean Journalists are telling me.

Yes. You are completely correct here. To continue with what Britguy has said about the media and corporate interests, I present to you the The Big Ten (click for nice visuals) -- AOL Time Warner, Disney, General Electric, News Corporation, Viacom, Vivendi, Sony, Bertelsmann, AT&T and Liberty Media.

Today the telejournalistic firmament includes the meteoric Fox News Channel, as well as twenty-six television stations owned outright by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation (which holds majority ownership in a further seven). Although ultimately thwarted in his bid to buy DirecTV and thereby dominate the US satellite television market, Murdoch wields a pervasive influence on the news--and not just in New York, where he has two TV stations, a major daily (the faltering New York Post) and the Fox News Channel, whose inexhaustible platoons of shouting heads attracts a fierce plurality of cable-viewers. Meanwhile, Time Warner has now merged with AOL--so as to own the cyberworks through which to market its floodtide of movies, ball games, TV shows, rock videos, cartoons, standup routines and (not least) bits from CNN, CNN Headline News, CNNfn (devised to counter GE's CNBC) and CNN/Sports Illustrated (a would-be rival to Disney's ESPN franchise). While busily cloning CNN, the parent company has also taken quiet steps to make it more like Fox, with Walter Isaacson, the new head honcho, even visiting the Capitol to seek advice from certain rightist pols on how, presumably, to make the network even shallower and more obnoxious. (He also courted Rush Himself.) [..]
What's Wrong With This Picture?

Liberal media? Right-wing Fox Network? How about just plain old Greedy Corporate Media, hmm?

And while the Oligarchy of Ten, this Cartel of News and Entertainment, continues to consolidate it's rule of all that you see, hear and read, the report on media ownership by the FCC, a regulatory body whose supposed role is to prevent such oligopolies from emerging, becomes suppressed from the general public.

[..]The FCC Media Bureau report analyzes the impact of deregulation in the radio industry. The report states that from March 1996 through March 2003, the number of commercial radio stations on the air rose 5.9 percent while the number of station owners fell 35 percent.

The intense concentration of ownership followed a 1996 rewrite of telecommunications law that eliminated a 40-station national ownership cap.

The report, apparently prepared in 2003, was never made public, nor have any similar analyses followed, despite the fact that radio industry reports were released in 1998, 2001 and 2002[..]
Senator says media study suppressed

But is the FCC actually helping with the situation? Apparently not.

FCC Approves New Media Ownership Rule

By JOHN DUNBAR – Dec 18, 2007

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Communications Commission, overturning a 32-year-old ban, voted Tuesday to allow broadcasters in the nation's 20 largest media markets to also own a newspaper.

FCC Chairman Kevin Martin was joined by his two Republican colleagues in favor of the proposal, while the commission's two Democrats voted against it.

Martin pushed the vote through despite intense pressure from House and Senate members on Capitol Hill to delay it. The chairman, however, has the support of the White House, which has pledged to turn back any congressional action that seeks to undo the vote.

Lovely. Just lovely.

As an aside, look at the date of the vote. One week before a major holiday. Sneaky, no? extra DIV

Everyone already knew this. This has been the result of declining news integrity over the last several decades. Arguing over the political affiliation of news channels is and always will be completely pointless. There will always be people so stupid, brainwashed, or both to ever see Fox News or the Inquirer or the Sun and whatever other rags as rags, ever. There are people born and indoctrinated to have a certain belief and to believe certain people and ideas are evil, and they will never, ever break free of that brainwashing. This applies in America to mostly uneducated and uncultured people who view homosexuality, religion other then Jesus based, minorities, and women as evil, or problems or ideas that are created by the "left". In Islamic countries these are the terrorists, who never learn to play with others and let things go. In every country there is a group like this. They will never ever change unless there are drastic actions taken in there respective countries to solve the issues and hatred out that they represent. These topics pop up on ATS constantly and I swear there are people who know better egging on the people who should be pitied just to laugh at there expense, its ridiculous.

It seems the public flocks to Fox. They lead in every category. I know, I know, all these folks are the sheeple right?

The far left fringe representing 10% of the public.....They're the ones who are right. They just want the rest to see the light which so clearly illuminates their paths correct?

Well, you've got quite a bit of work to do. This mass conversion is going to take some time. Better start indoctrinating the kiddies to cary on this crusade!
