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 Fox is opinions? It's the same on the other networks too. How do you defend them?edit on 5-7-2012 by jjf3rd77 because: (no reason given)

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.

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..
