As most of us all know FOX News is the most viewed cable news source in America. They are far beyond both MSNBC and CNN. Maintaining an obvious
Conservative even Neoconservative slant on issues. Bringing on political commentators that lack true experience and knowledge of political systems and
adding them to panels that are meant for encouraging political debate.
I find it hard to understand their rationale when proclaiming 'Fair and Balanced' when the overwhelming majority of your commentators and guests are
Conservative or are defending Conservatives on dividing issues. They have the so called 'Great American Panel' on Hannity
that is made up of
Panels are meant for sparking political debate, but all I see is a round table of everyone nodding in agreement with each other. They have Michelle
Malkin as a regular guest on FOX and she has gone as far as to attack Atheist/Agnostics and claimed terrible things about Liberals. They also have
Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, John McCain, and Ann Coulter as frequent guests.
Now to get to the real story. I was speaking with my cable provider and asked how I could lower my bill so as to save money. I don't order movies and
currently have Stars + Show Time for free. As we were discussing the arrangements and channels I would lose we came to a final deal. But I asked the
representative the news channels I will be provided with and he said the local news channels and FOX News + FOX Business.
I asked how much it would cost to have MSNBC and CNN, I am a regular viewer of MSNBC.
He said it would cost an extra $7 per month because he
would have to raise my package deal to a higher level.
I asked him why I must pay an extra $7 just to have CNN and MSNBC but still receive FOX
His answers was clear, he said FOX News is part of every standard package and the other national news channels are just additional.
So now FOX is part of the regular package while CNN and MSNBC would cost me an extra $7!? I obviously agreed to pay the $7 and receive my news. But it
outraged me, why is FOX treated better than the other news stations. Obviously all have a political slant. MSNBC is Liberal, FOX is conservative, and
CNN is for whoever’s in office.
Has anyone else encountered this?
