Honestly FOX is just as bad as all the others, and vice versa. It doesnt matter what news source you ask about MSM or otherwise even the non mainstream news sources are biased towards whatever their own personal agenda is. It has more than anything to do though with the fact that very often FOX tends to spin, that is they will take a rumour or a piece of information that would be detrimental to their cause and they bring on "experts" and "insider's" who supposedly are in the know, really theyre just on the payroll, and they spin whatever the information might be they start off by saying thing's such as "some doubt has been shown on blahblah" or "some experts are calling into question blahblah" and they , quite quickly at times, turn this piece of non existant or detrimental information into a piece of "fact" as in they take something from being untrue to making viewers believe it's true they also tend to make other news channels fall in behind them because of how aggresive they are.
I think ALL news sources do this. Maybe intentionally or maybe not. Reporters are human and so they are going to have certain preconceived notions that is going to bend their story in certain directions. Its human.

"Deregulation is fine as long as you build in checks and balances and harsher penalties for abusing the system, which they failed to do. It is easily fixed. "
Checks and balances, are a form of regulation....thats the point. Some of the deregulation that was implemented, removed the "rules" or checks and balances to ensure that people or businesses do not exploit the system.
how do you deregulate and then regulate with rules/checks and balances?

The only people who think that Fox News is an evil conspirator with the Republican party or whomever are the people who don't watch the network and those whose political positions won't stand up to rational discourse or forensic scrutiny.
The rest of those who spread this nonsense are those whose platforms are discredited and exposed and the networks who are losing their butts to Fox in the ratings.
Bill O'Reilly is a commentator so his show is not really news.. just his opinion.
