I have read about new agencies claiming a right to propaganda, but have not seen it confirmed in a reliable source. I'm also interested in seeing links to this information. Not that it's too hard to believe.

I find it funny that its motivation is "balance", which could only mean that there is another media in the fox-network which is its counterpart, right? Why should it balance anything beyond its radius of influence? Because then it were oblidged to counter any media in the world (or at least in the us), even harsher right-wing-media, too.


I really don't think that they use the word balance in the way this word does mean. Look at it like a set of scales, on one side you put the "lefties", on the other side you put the "righties". But how do you measure the "weight" of each side? If Fox-News is the largest and most-seen "news"-network in the us, there is some weight missing on the other scale, right?

On another thought: you get what you deserve.. Fox-News is taken for a joke by the rest of the western world and a target of hate by most countries the us is at war with.
And that is a fact.

You do know that after 7PM all the "news" on TV is opinions? It's the same on the all the networks. How do you defend them?

That should be clearly marked, I haven't seen any sign of "this is not news, but our opinions!". On either side.

Goddamnit, I LOVE my news-networks over here. I don't trust any of them in regards to Syria, but that is another case, completely - nobody knows anything reliable about the status of the rebels and the war over there.

If you can't figure out the difference between a news reporter and a news opinionated show you deserve to let the media lie to you.

BTW, I believe Shepard Smith states something about Bill O'Reilly being an opinion show at 7:59 PM everyday.

"According to a number of online resources, it appears that two former employees of a Fox News-owned TV station in Florida, Jane Akre and Steve Wilson, refused to knowingly include false information in a report about an artificial hormone developed by a multi-national biotech company and they were subsequently fired. Presumably believing that they were wrongfully dismissed and that the station had knowingly broken the law, the couple sued them under Florida’s whistle-blower’s law (among other things).

The pair won their case and, as often seems to be the case with big business, it went to appeal. Amazingly, and although the reasons for the original case seem not to have been contended, the appellant corporation successfully argued that while the FCC had a News Distortion policy, it was only a policy."

personally i only watch cspan cctv and al jazeera and scour the web for anything i can

Your first mistake is calling FOX a news service because it's not a news service. According to Murdock the owner it's an infotainment service.

Every time there is a news story that the left doesn't like they attack the messenger in order to plant a seed of doubt in peoples minds, it is just propaganda technique, and they use it on many more news sources than Fox, you can always predict who will post on these sort of topics and what they are going to say.

They don't do any research to see if the story is true they immediately discount it, I always check several sources to see if a story is true or not, or how it has been spun.

I think all the news channels suck. I'm pretty sure they fabricate all of the news coverage..
does the government regulate what they put on TV no?

I think they are feeding the US a bunch of crap that the government wants us to hear, and not shedding real insight on the TRUTH.
Propaganda anyone?

Maybe because it offers entertainment value after 7PM? Conservatives like to watch liberals get humiliated. It's fun!
It's entertainment.
Murdoch knows that this is what happens after 7PM he created the idea!!!!!!

Because of things like This.

Because Fox is ALWAYS willing to put the most beligerant, moronic, non sensical person in prime time to report their news. Not the actual news, but the version of the news that Fox and these pundits would like you to believe happened.

All of the major networks do this, but Fox, has a little bit more crazy than the rest. MSNBC comes pretty close too though..

Fox News was sued a few years ago for broadcasting something untruthful.

Part of their defense was a statement by the CEOat the time, and I'm paraphrasing here, but he said that Fox didn't claim to be a news organization but they were an entertainment one.

Only recently, they wanted to start a Candadian channel, and we're nearly ready to seal the deal when Canada's version of the FCC asked them to sign a document that basically said they'd only broadcast true statements/stories, etc.

Fox decided that a Canadian presence wouldn't be in their best interest.

Draw your own conclusions.

Most of the people on this website seem completely paranoid and investigative on every aspect of the Government.

But I'm sure there are those of you out there that trust FOX, CNN, etc. for a daily news source.
question everything

what I like is the sarcasm,,, the veiled personal attacks ... and, of course ..all that TnA ..

wow where else can you get so much eye candy and also be able to point fingers at people and things that are pinheads and bad for the country.

I know ..when I want to feel superior .. or I need someone to blame ... or if I accidentally start to look inside and realize some of my own faults and deficiencies... I tune in to FOX and they never fail to provide me with that "other" .. that enemy that I can rally against and blame all the ills of the world on ....

and thank goodness they dont waste money on news desks.... I mean ..itd be a shame to put some of those gams behind an obstruction! ..many times I find myself just droolin with the sound down .. whoda thunk that so many beeeeyooootiful babes would become experts on so many subjects?

FOX news is right baby .... Daddy needs some private time,,,,



ya know ..whether yer right //left... in the middle .. Im just glad we have a network that makes sure those lines are drawn .. keepin yall deeevided .... lets seperate the libs/blacks/athiests/gays/slackers/pinheads/fawreners/A-Rabs/twoofers/crackpots from the good ol GOP so we can get a good look at em ... hey we'll even interview one of em ...(shhhh dont worry ..I'll interrupt and talk over em ... they wont gtet a word in) ..and if they do we'll just get a panel of Ken and Barbies to talk about what idiots they are ...

hey if yer lookin for a job ..the CGI department is the fastest growing division ... heck we don't even NEED an event anymore ... I cracked up when they let us go with that face chewin thing ... wish theyd of approved of the CGI artsist' rendition of the naked guy with a bib ...

yeah ... FOX News ... sleep my prettys ...sleeep.....

Do you know the difference between Sheppard Smith and Bill?

One is a reporter. The other is not!

I find it hilarious that many people do not understand how news channels work.
