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.



good point and yes they are a joke i cant take them seirously

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?

Not true.
The BBC, for example, never has "opinion" pieces at any time of the night or day. They don't have the fast-paced, in your face, ranting and raving political cheer leading the American broadcasters have.
There are a lot of things I do criticize the BBC for, and I certainly don't trust them. But there is a chasm of difference between the BBC and all US "news" broadcasters.

This is a cultural issue in my opinion. Sky tried to do that over here, emulating the bias of American media, and it just doesn't work very well. I think Americans have become used to propaganda being called news. They're used to seeing political rants being represented as valid news rather than one opinion.

There are guidelines in the UK on news being presented as opinion, and you can bet your butt that if the BBC tried to do that there would be a tsunami of complaint from across the country. Maybe it's because the BBC is publicly funded?

Again, I don't trust the BBC either, they always seem to play down stories that might harm the government, and play up stories that might be useful for whoever is in power. Note that I said whoever is in power and not one party. That is the problem with the BBC, they are almost obliged to "not be too hard" on the current government - whether it's left or right. And as a result, we end up with a slightly warped version of the truth that never actually has any teeth.

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?


Truthfully, I have noticed FOX has jumped on that bandwagon lately.

To clarify. I was talking about US News Channels

It's the same set up on all of them.

then it gets like this...

-All of us right now, arguing about which news channel is better...
(probably what they want... the classic Democrats Vs. Republicans)

We are always so bent up on "who is Right"
Fact is none of us are RIGHT at the moment, because most of us don't know the truth.
I wish everyone in the US one day would take a step back, bash thier TV with a baseball bat,
and focus on the whole picture of things.
--News in US = Propaganda--

Many people still have waking up to do.

Your spectacule quote:

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

And thank the Queen and company that you have the BBC, right?

Ya.. didn't the UK have complete camera visuals of ALL THE STREETS way before we did in the US?
I'm pretty sure the UK news/media is about just as bad, if not worse on the propaganda scale.

But then again, I never watch BBC or whatever, so I wouldn't know.
-but I can't take the redcoats word for it either...

not many people trying to argue which ones are better
just a lot of people saying most of the large ones fox included are cesspits of partisian propaganda trying to make buttloads of money and further private agendas

So what is better not watching the News?



Obama thinks so, but would that only really help them to dumb you down further. If you don't watch the news how are you supposed to know what is going on? The internet blogs are easily way more partisan and cannot be as quickly verified.

If you think everything the MSM does is lie, what is truth? Your own opinion? Then why do you bash Fox for having theirs? Or are you just jealous that the people there get paid $20 Million for their opinions and not you?


I think that's it!

What is truth?
I want to know. But for one I know propaganda can be easily intertwined in the messages and broadcasts these news stations offer.
I guess though, watching it to notice the BS they constantly dish out is a good thing?
I mean, to really be aware of what is REALLY going on in the Government and in the world... you would have to trust them nearly unconditionally.
-me personally, I have lost trust in many things since being in the military.
things aren't always what they seem to me. Civilians don't know many things that happen because they aren't public.

So ya.. I think all of them fabricate the truth.
what is needed is a trustworthy person.
(or maybe I'm just paranoid or something)
my bad for ranting.

Do you see how that is your opinion?

The only way to truly know is to work for Fox News or any other news media or work for the government in a high position

Because they never have Cops on anymore. Plus their MLB Commentors are usually against the Detroit Tigers.

I like my local NBC station, (Clickondetroit.com or WDIV). It's tech in newscast is like future, Fox's is stone age.


ABC, I am not talking bout' them.

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..

~Tenth


I was going to say. The point here is that Fox is a news service just like the rest of them and ripping on them for slanting the news is kind of splitting hairs isnt it? They all do it. I dont care who they are. Unless they are run by Vulcans with no emotion it will be like that. No one wants to report news that might damage their side of the coin. But to completely discredit them as a joke means they all have to be discredited because every last one of them does it and anyone that says their source is legit and no the level has to be kidding themselves because this happens with ALL of them.
