So your response to the accusation that Faux news is not fair OR balanced is that other networks aren't either?
So then you agree that Faux news is biased and utterly worthless, that their mantra is a facade for deep seeded hatred of anyone that's different?
Okay - at least you agree.
other networks? Yes, there are others like them.
But Fox Says it best - They're America's #1 source....of pure unadulterated bull crap.
Who says FOX News doesn't like Barack Obama?
The first year of the Democratic president has been good for the nation's leading cable news channel - its viewership up 7 percent in prime-time hours so far in 2009, compared to the same time last year.
Make that 10 percent among the 25-54-year-olds whom advertisers love to court.
As opposed to both rivals CNN, suffering an apparent post-Dobbs slump as well, and MSNBC - down by double-digits from year to year.
So say the Nielsen ratings in this year of living Democratically, when President Barack Obama's White House has taken on FOX for being something other than a traditional news network - "an arm of the Republican Party,'' according to the outgoing White House communications director. It could be, perhaps, that all the vitriol which commentator Glenn Beck and company have stirred up for Obama and crew has been box-office for the network that the press office loves to hate.
Beck's own audience - 2.67 million viewers in November - includes a 101 percent gain among the 25-54 year-olds since last year.
It's both FOX's standard news fare - Brett Baier's report - and its commentary - Beck, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity - that have fared well during the first 10 months of the Obama administration.
FOX News, of course, has been dominant in the cable ratings for some time - No. 1 in total viewers for 95 consecutive months (since January of 2002), by Nielsen Media Research's count.
This is just way to funny. You say that Fox hates anyone that is different. THe fact is, that Fox is different from all of the other BS on TV and is therefore hated by all of the MSM outlets and the White House for presenting an alternative viewpoint that is critical of the typical liberal rhetoric.
