Why People Hate Fox News the Most?

I always see people on this site go and attack Fox News first and as fast as they can think of the words. I have seen Fox get attacked even when the topic was conservative in nature, but no Fox News link in sight.

Do people attack the News Network just because its conservative? If you truly believe that the MSM lies, why place all the blame on Fox News? Fox News may be number one in the ratings but the others have clearly lied to you too. And since it is a conservative network, I think most people would like it because its different than the other channels.

Or do you just not care about the others because at least they align with your ideology and like to stick up for the liberals as well as the President?

I personally find Fox News a breath of fresh air among the liberal media! And yes, all the other stations are liberal.Fox News is the only channel that leans conservative, especially at night. During the day it's the same as all the others.

Have any of the other Fox News bashers actually ever watched Fox News? Or do you just listen to botched youtube videos that can easily be edited to make any news network look bad. Not to mention that Media Matters is out there, bashing Fox News every chance it gets. So what's worse? Watching botched Youtube videos and listening to them, or watching the MSM and listening to them?

You have some explaining to do Fox News haters. I bet I will find that the majority of people will say they hate Fox News because it is conservative and bias.... So I guess you want a liberal monopoly on the news? Then how come Fox News is killing all the other liberal channels in the ratings combined?

Fox News is the most trusted News Channel in America.

Almost half of all Americans surveyed in the poll of 1,151 registered voters said they trusted Fox News. That is a notably larger vote of confidence than the 39% who said they trusted Fox's great rival CNN, and vastly more than the credibility ratings of the traditional news networks ABC News (31%), CBS News (32%) and NBC News (35%)

Thank god I live in the UK, American Cable News is a joke on both sides of the political spectrum.

My problem isn't that it is right wing and bias, rather it claims to be fair. The hosts claim to be independent and honest, and the reports they file are put to shreds when fact checked.

You are right though, many of the other channels are left leaning. And they should be bashed when they get caught lying. I don't believe it happens as much as with Fox though.

Lowest hanging fruit I guess. I mean, how many YouTube channels are dedicated to pointing out Fox News lies?

When I tell Christians that Rupert Marduk prints the satanic bible they act as if I have blasphemed God. Its bloody true. He also owns Zoundervan and prints the HIV errm NIV.

Why People Hate Fox News the Most?,

Seriously. Fox leans right. CNN leans left. But MSNBC ...
.... the absolute worst shills on the planet. FAR left and obnoxious. And yet, most people complain about FOX and don't say a word about the crap MSNBC pumps out.

Personally, I think lots of people blame Fox News for the war-mongering they had before the Iraq war, along with the war on terror. People are not as stupid as you would think. They see that this war is a huge failure. They also realize that there is a connection between the war and the financial crisis. It might not be exactly what made the crisis possible. But, it made an event that was large enough to help start the crisis. And, Fox also advocates the trickle-down economy theory. This theory has helped the banks, but created lots of poverty. And, Fox News helped Bush get re-elected. Fox News deserves their bad reputation. They had the wrong opinion and swayed the population to the wrong path. So, people judge them by their actions. Well deserved, in my opinion.

Not really sure about that one OP. MSNBC is also a joke, but it seems that people don't mind propaganda as long as it goes along with their thinking. I'm not sure I trust either of these so called "news agencies". I really think this ties into the problem with the news nowadays, the inability to separate personal views with reporting facts. If a particular fact doesn't advance the reporters own views they simply leave it out, and try to skew the story to their liking. Journalism should be about letting the reader decide how to interpret the facts, however, today most news seems more editorial in nature as apposed to fact based news.

Maybe it's because they are a news channel that defends, in court, it's right to broadcast lies.

I kind of have an issue with that...

Most people hate Fox because it's conservative news. The rest hate it because they are told to by liberal media and their liberal friends.

Good job we have Channel 4 News, for those who avoid the BBC sensationalism and prefer a more rational approach to a News program. I've seen American News and there is no comparison I'm afraid.

The Ironic thing about the BBC, is that people on the right think its too liberal and people on the left think it is just the government mouth piece.

Still the level of political and news debate is much higher in the UK than in America, where everything is reduced to the lowest common denominator.

People simply deny the truth that they are told to believe everyday at 6:30 pm by the big 3.

Fox News' ratings speak for themselves. Marry that to the information learned from unconventional Web based sources and you have a gold mine of facts ripe for the picking. Facts and news stories that you will never hear from the lips of Brian Williams.

Journalism is not what it used to be. No more just the facts reporting in the MSM outlets from print to broadcast. Just look at what Newsweek mag. and Time have become. Just delivery agents for the White House talking points of the day.

People just need to dig deeper.

Unfortunately there is never going to be a news service that is truly non biased becuase we are all human and we all have our own set of values and in politics we try to group with those who most closely represent our values. In my opinion, I like Fox news because they will report what the liberal stations will not. Who else is putting anything about Holder or anything bad about ObummerCare on their websites? The other stations seem to be too easily controlled when a Democrat is in office. They will not report anything bad about a Democrat President unless it just gets to the point that they cannot ignore it and even then they try and put a good spin on it. Yes Fox leans towards the Conservatives. But when they are debating they usually do have a democrat on for their viewpoint. Not saying he isnt being thrown to the wolves but at least you get to hear his spin on things. I think people want to bash Fox simply because they consider them the enemy because they are more conservative. So yes they are quickly dismissed here to the point that I am afraid to even use them as a source for fear of getting laughed off a thread, even if the true sources from the article is a AP reporter or someone else off site. I track the true source. Its pretty sad that a legit news service cannot be sourced here. But Count me in as one who pays attention to Fox news because i have a brain and I can see through the crap usually. But for the most part I think they do a pretty good job of reporting what others wont. Especially MSNBC and CNN which use to be known as the "Clinton News Network" some years back if you will remember.

Everyone keeps saying this but I dont see any sources to lies. Not saying they have never posted anything before having all of the facts but I would venture a guess that every news network out there has done that. Show me some of these lies.

Ready for an eye opener and a good laugh?? Just pay a visit to Media Matters. I always visit that site just so I know what to expect on ATS for the day. It is dedicated to hating Fox News and Rush LImbaugh and quite humorous.

Once and a while they attack CNN if one of their contributors utters something contradictory to the White House Talking Points.

Put on your hip waders..

I think it is partly a "supply" side type of thing. Look at it this way. Say you are right wing and you want to bash left leaning TV news. Of course, MSNBC is at the top of that.. but then you have well... most every other TV news outlet too, CBS, NBC, CNN, ABC, BBC America, etc, etc.

If you are on the left and want to bash right leaning TV news .. well.. Fox is the only one.

I have to agree with that. It IS easier to attack Fox since the liberal media has a monopoly on the news and they only let Fox survive so they can bash it even though more people watch Fox News then any of their networks combined.

I make it a rule to simply not trust any MSM. I check as much information as I can from all sources, work out what a specific broadcaster ISN'T telling me, check reports from people actually on the ground, real journalists with some integrity, people who have experienced whatever it is...

I criticize Fox because it is as biased as can be. Real news broadcasters don't shout at you and tell you what to believe, they present facts and allow the audience to make up it's own mind. Fox attempts to scream at everyone until they believe their biased opinion.

Fox is not a credible news source, this has been proven time and time again. It makes no difference to me if it's conservative or not - the fact that they are biased to one political sphere is enough to destroy any and all credibility in everything they say.

Also, it's owned by Murdoch's corporation - need I say more?
