Congratulations, Fox is the #1 best crappy news network. Its better than CNN, MSNBC and all the other crappy news networks.

Whats your point exactly? That you actually watch this crap?

No matter what their intitials, mainstream media networks are crap and anyone who bases their opinions on what these idiotic networks have to say are just as mindless as the network employees.

Congratulations Fox, your the the best at being crappy!

Well of course it's number 1.

It's so off the chain that everyone, no matter what their political leanings, has to keep an eye on FauxNews to make sure they're not advocating revolution or worse.


Anyone wants to be really and truly informed watches and reads everything they can...not just what they happen to "agree" with. You will never, ever get the big picture by focusing on any one source.

Also, anyone who thinks they're getting unbiased news from any of these outlets is seriously mistaken and probably very seriously underinformed and misinformed.

The funny thing is the number of people who watch any one program on FoxNews still doesn't come close to alternative media numbers. (radio, internet)

I don't know I think a good amount of the public would still be "asleep" if it wasn't for GB on Fox news. Not that I agree with everything he says but he has to stay within a certain boundary on the MSM. He can't just dump everything on the unknowing public at once he is trying to get you thinking and doing your own research so you can discover the evil nature of these S.O.B.'s on your own. It's the drip...drip....drip....method. Plus he probably frequents this site and AJ's sites for his future talking points...lol.

Wow I couldn't even finish reading that first page. Why are so many people taking sides?? This whole thing with news networks is just theatrics, and most of you are falling for it.

They're all fluff at different times, so OF COURSE you assume channel x has "more" crap than channel y at any given moment. And yet each one shows just enough logic every now and then to retain its viewers.

Why not TURN OFF your t.v. and if you don't have time to research news online, then just enjoy life but please stop being so damn stupid, because frankly its embarrassing to the rest of us!

I agree. Watching any MSM news outlet is only going to give you the agenda proposed by that outlet. You are not getting news, you are getting propaganda.

A smart person would take any news story and treat it like an ATS thread. Even if it sounds real good, without real proof, it's just a story.

Oh but let me guess "It's Media Matters! they are also Communist, Socialist, Marxist Terrorists!!!". Media Matter exposes mistakes in the media. You know for that pesky problem of accountability.

This vid is a picture perfect example of what is going on in right wing world.

I have read every retarded response to my question yet no one has yet to answer it.

Fox Noise DID create, sponsor and promote large demonstrations against this President and of the Government of the United States. They did not pay for you bus ticket moron, because if you think that is the only expense, well then there is no hope for you.

They created it, they sponsored it and they promoted it. They ceased to be an unbiased news organization and became a political operation.

Moreover, I could give a rats ### how well Fox does in ratings, but what I do care about is how they lie to the American public day in and day out to divide this nation. They lie to your face plain and simple.

The sad thing is you know they lie right to your face but you want to believe it so badly that you go along with it. Then you and a thousand other idiots meet up in Washington and sure enough they believe the lie to, so it must be real. Then you begin holding up your signs saying "Stop giving the First Lady Terrorist Fist Bumps" and "Watch out the black guy is going after Grand Ma". This site claims to deny ignorance yet in just these few pages IT IS LOADED WITH IT.



But you know what if you like being told that the President is a Communist, Socialist, Marxist who is going to make sure you get vaccinated and put into FEMA camps so you can sit in front of a death panel with Grand Ma be my guest. Do the back stroke in Lake Ignorance all you want.

But when the majority of us think that you are all (fill in your favorite phrase) don't be surprised and have a tisy.

*snip* Plain and simple and reality proves us right.

Bill O'Reilly IS NOT A NEWS REPORTER!

I beg people to at least attempt to learn the difference.

An opinion show is full of.......Opinions! Who would have guessed?

Of course he isn't Anjin but you are missing the point Mate. It's all apart of their M.O.

Corporate funded looney says Obama is going to kill Grand Ma.

Political operatives pick up the talking point like Palin did.

Then people like O' Reilley and company on Fox broadcast as if it were true 24/7 for days on end. Not just on their opinion talk shows but throughout the entire day.

Than the "Liberal" or normal media pick up on it because everyone is talking about it giving it legitimacy.

Than sure enough people get fired or amendments get cut out all orginally based on a lie.

What Fox does is a text book example of propaganda or an intelligence operation. It all starts with an obnoxious lie carried forth by media personalities.

Bill O'Reilley isn't a journalist but he is a liar.

But couldn't we say that for all opinion shows?

What about Chris Matthews when talking about the man with the assault rifle showing up to town hall meetings. They deliberately hid the fact that the man was black in order to push an agenda.
To me that is the same as lying.

For me, I get my news here mostly but I occasionally watch Fox in the evenings but I ALWAYS have my BS detector on and dialed in.

The main reason I defend Fox news is because they have the right to report how they want no matter if the President agrees with them or not.

The first instance of a man showing up with a gun to a town hall was white the second was black and was found to be a radio stunt. Not that the color of skin matters anyways.

Most news outlets suck but at the very least they are not lying to the public about how the President is going to imprison Americans or is a secret Muslim Keynan terrorist.

When the Star or The Sun rag magazines you see in groceries stores talk about how a man gave birth to an alien baby you don't see the N.Y. Times picking up the story and asking questions like is this true, maybe we should cover this story for the entire week 24/7. That would be giving that outlandish story some level of credibility.

Well that is exactly what Fox is doing. They get these talking points from political operatives like Sarah Palin, who gets it in turn from the insurance industry that Obama is out to kill Grand Ma with Death Panels.

Now anyone with 1/2 a functioning brain knows that is absolutely ridiculous and a complete lie. So instead of just letting this utterly retarded notion die and not cover it (like the N.Y. Times would do to the Sun or Star rag mags) they cover it, over and over and over, and over again.

Than here is where it gets really bad, the regular media picks up the story and they run with it. Mainly because its sensationalism but because Fox is getting all these ratings. That action gives the story credibility. That is what the President is arguing about. The fact that Fox has no credibility is nothing new, but what is new is that regular news sources are running the story and that is the problem.

Than as a consequence an admendment gets struck out of a bill that would allow medicare reciepients the money to meet with their doctor for an hour to go over how they would like to die when that day comes and what their options are. Just a measley $100 bucs so some old guy with Cancer will know what his options are.

We see alot of conspiracies on ATS but if this isn't a text book definition of brainwashing and controlling legislation through propaganda I don't know what is.

Republicans screamed that Obama was going to brain wash kids in school yet they fail to realize how Fox fed them that crap to begin with. They are the real brain wash operation.

Because I would bet many Conservatives here are decent, intelligent and compassionate people who would if you sat down with them at a kitchen table would absolutely agree that medicare should cover a measely hour for an old person to meet with their Doctor about their options when they die. But all it took was the industry, political operatives and Fox News to do the insurance companies bidding.

That is the truth.

Boy did you ever take the words right out of my mouth.

Seeing the first couple of pages of people bickering and insulting one another makes me glad I turned off my TV and stopped being brainwashed by ALL of the garbage propaganda-spewing "news" stations which are nothing more than herd-steering mediums for TPTB, who LOVE this endless fighting of the little people, because it allows them to keep the endless flip-flopping of the two-party crime family servants they keep selecting to violate us all firmly in place, admin after admin. While all the "little people" attack one another and "which party is better", they are setting up their next robbery, their next war, etc., etc., etc....

Sigh.

Fox news numbers = made up mostly of conservative right wings

the rest of the networks are made up of centerist rights, centers, and lefts.

so...fox news has their own brand for a specific mindset of conspiracy righties. the rest of the networks divide up the rest.

What is the number when you add MSNBC, CNN, CSPAN, CBS, etc...

about 5-6 times the amount of Fox?

what do you think would happen if another right wing radio propaganda station opened up? fox news would start falling apart...what about 3-4 different varietys? boom...

They have high ratings because 20% of America gets like 100% of their news from Fox (sorry, 20% of news watching America...typically a older demographic).

Fox news can have a audience of 5m a night for their prime time spots, and will still fail in elections (yes, thats not a mistake, the point of Fox is to appease the conservative lobbiests, therefore they are a election machine)...Why?

Because its a news channel (sorta) and the younger voters rarely if ever watch the TV news...if anything, they hit a website for the headlines and thats about it...and which party do you think is overloaded now with the under 40 voters?

Hope and change :-)

Fox news is also "#1" because it's played in every fast-food gimmick, gym, and bank you walk into.

From what I can see there are a lot of Obama supporters on here trying to knock FOXS news,guess independent 3rd party ratings hurt.
Face it NBC,ABC,MSNBC,CNN ratings have all gone down, why ??because no one believes their crap any more.
I hope you guys are getting paid good or do you all work for ACORN or SEIU???

by the way my e mail is wmf1954@gmail.com and I am a American veteran who remembers what the constitution is ,and redistributing income was not in it!!!

I completely agree that they have the right to report how they want - just like we all have the right to accept it or not; Regardless if the President agrees or not. I do find it odd that a Mass Media Network that is so anti Obama and has so many close ties to not only Rep. but the Bushs' themselves; would openly speak so badly against the President ... I mean I'm all for freedom of speech and the press but aren't they totally contradicting that whole Patriot Act that was so neccessarily put into place? Do as I say don't do as a I do I guess. Dont have someone tell you what's going on find out for yourself .
