A prior poster alluded to the fact that FOX News won a lawsuit based on their First Amendment Rights which allows them to lie and distort the truth. Here is more proof of that claim:


In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.



FOX asserted that there are no written rules against distorting news in the media. They argued that, under the First Amendment, broadcasters have the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on public airwaves.

FOX News is Infotainment. I attribute their meteoric 'popularity' on the notion that
"misery loves company" and the overall dumbing down of America.

Source: www.usnews.com...

It is the same group of mental midgets who watch American Idol, think Glenn Beck is sincere and want a former half-term ex Governor to be president. I honestly don't know what makes some people so ignorant, but whatever it is sure seems to be working.

I'm sure that, for some, watching FOX News is actually kind of fun, like self gratification. But you just wouldn't want your friends catch you doing it.

My reponse... WHO CARES!!!
Don't like what they're showing? CHANGE THE CHANNEL!!! Why come on here and whine like a child who's lost their candy? There are plenty of channels you can tune into and watch them praise OBama - ABC and CNN immediatley come to mind!

Nope! Read the entire thread. My post sums up the entire thread! Anyone who believes anything that they are watching on any of the propaganda networks needs to have their head examined! Reading you guys bash Fox news while giving the impression that the other networks are better is... well, just ironic!

While I respect your opinion, I completely disagree with it.

Fox news is everything that's wrong with journalistic integrity in this country.

I'm sure you'll disagree, but that's fine. You're entitled to your opinion, and i'm entitled to mine.

Run along, sheeple

Good lord and the divisiveness continues. This thread is pure insanity. All you're arguing over is which skewed version of the News do you like better! Some people like the News skewed one way, some like it skewed the other. Some like it hot, some like it cold, some like it in the pot 9 days old. This is ridiculous.
READ that Supreme Court ruling. That sets precedent for ALL news networks not just Fox! They can ALL skew the news and they all do.

Fox news is what's wrong with journalistic integrity??? Are you joking?
Based on that statement, is it safe for me to assume that you believe somehow CNN, MSNBC, ABC or any other network exhibits journalistic integrity? Really? They ALL FAIL epically in the "Journalistic integrity" department.

I think what we have here is the democrats slamming Fox and supporting MSNBC because it parrots their views. Get it through your thick heads - it is ALL propaganda!!!

I am honestly surprised anyone even watches Fox News anymore or MSM for that matter. How many times do these Purveyors of lies and garbage have to be caught before people just turn them off all together. MSM,Hollywood,and even the paper news is full of it. Don't believe them or buy into their head games. They are all Charlatan's!

The CEO of Fox News is Roger Ailes..

Roger Ailes..

Nixon's Executive Producer of Television..

Ailes served as a political consultant for many Republican candidates during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Served on the Reagan campaign
Served on GHW Bush Campaign



Ailes also came up with the "orchestra pit theory" regarding sensationalist political coverage in the news media, with the question:

If you have two guys on a stage and one guy says, 'I have a solution to the Middle East problem,' and the other guy falls in the orchestra pit, who do you think is going to be on the evening news?

en.wikipedia.org...

Push Polls, racist Ads...he has done it all.

Fox News is no mystery...Sensationalism over issues, flash over substance and how to use television to manipulate people in a political context.

Occasionally during the course of my discussions on ATS I come across a poster whose keen insight, sharp logic and erudite sources sway my way of thinking into considering an opposing view. Unfortunately, this IS NOT one of those times.

Certain posters exhibit their unabashed bigotry as a badge of honor. Wearing their bias
proudly on their sleeve.

Case in point:


Ironically accusing others of engaging in propaganda, while spewing same. It is the epitome of hypocrisy.

ON TOPIC:

FOX NEWS deserves the scrutiny and consternation it receives. While purporting to
present “fair and balanced” reporting, their modus operandi is to infer, suggest and bait.
They often make far out, unfounded claims by simply adding a question mark. Supposition and Fallacy 101 like: “Does Obama still beat his wife?” I could post countless examples. They are also notorious for incorrectly identifying the party of a politician embroiled in controversy by labeling a “D” instead of an “R.” They have been caught red-handed in numerous instances.

Like I said before, all they had to do was employ a side-by-side split screen to cover both breaking events. Obama / Flaming Plane crash.

Fair and balanced in the way Colonel Sanders is a chicken welfare advocate.

I service what I sell so bring it !

Hey just to be fair and ballanced with this post...I can't count how many times CNN or MSNBC or ABC has cut away from a GOP President over the years. So please, its the nature of the business and all of them are after ratings. Probably Mr. Obama was just a bit too boring to keep an audience of people besides the kool aid drinkers he surrounds himself with.

HaHa reminds me of the daily show (daily and colbert are the best place for young people to start becoming more involved and interested, I would send someone there before cnn, fox or any other place) last night they showed a clip of a guy taking callers on cspan and he got this old racist guy who said they oughta change their name to BLACK-Span! He wondered, out loud and on-air why if "they" only make up about 12% of the population, then why were 90% of the callers black people calling in to "give THEIR opinion...tsk!" The funniest part was how the host reacted. wont spoil it though as I believe they put a lot of their stuff online or podcast or somethin fancy... But ya I was surprised they don`t get much mention on this site. They exposed a lot of truth I never would have noticed from just watching fox or cnn etc. When the Iraq stuff started around `03 I was 22yo and I became addicted to the live feeds on cnn and addicted to news and politics in general. So I`ve watched it all and I`ve consistently learned more from comedy centrasl. They`re biased against the right and against fox? so what I`m smart enough to know that and I`ve seen them take pretty serious stabs ALL AROUND. exposing the truth that THEY`re all bstrds! Candidates wanting to get voted in by this new generation will have to prove they arew different. Either that or cheat like Hell, which I suspect is already in motion...
