I was reading a few threads on ATS and alot of people are bashing Fox News
They laugh that Fox News was your source? HAHAHAHA and posts like that
But how come these same people don't say that about MSNBC or CNN?
MSNBC is a horrible news station, maybe Dylan Ratigan is sometimes good but other than that it's SUCKS!!!
So why do they only hate Fox?
I'll tell you why... it's because though MSNBC spreads propoganda all the time it's liberal commentary so it's fine!
Same thing like all those who hated Bush for what they considered as war crimes now give Obama the pass after he expanded the war into the entire
middle east after campaigning as a peace candidate.
Some people really really need a reality check
And some consider themselves skeptics yet still behave like this

I personally do not trust much of "mainstream media'. HOWEVER, that being said I also can state that FOX news has had polls and studies done where
full time FOX news viewers were less informed than other news sources.
While all news has some degree of bias and twisting (mostly due to it's CORPORATE influence rather than a "liberal agenda") FOX news is overly
blatent in how it presents news, what it reports on and HOW it reports it. It's "fox and Friends" have been repeatedly caught in lies and just
plain ignorant statements.
The thing is.. anyone who watches ONLY one news source (and it is intersting that the majority of Conservatives choose to watch FOX over other media,
99% of their viewing time). is going to only be getting part of the picture.
If I met someone who said that they ONLY watch FOX news and then proceeded to spout some story or viewpoint they heard on FOX I would seriously
question the validity of their information!.
I scan a variety of mainstream news sources and try and find some source that was reliable. Sometimes that is hard to do. Yet if I watch a Right
wing and then an obvious "left wing" source I SOMETIMES can determine some level of "truth" in the middle.. (but this is not always the best
It is vital that EVERYONE understand Critical thinking and learn their LOGICAL FALLACIES. You MUST be armed understanding Fallacies in reasoning if
you are going to get at the truth!!.
Fox does deserve much criticism... but so does MSNBC and CNN
But again.. it is more about Corporate influence and the manipulation of public opinion that is the problem!.
