Fox News bought out a full-page ad in the WaPo yesterday and posted this ad, attacking CNN:

New major news networks typically attack other major news networks this way?

Also, that ad is complete bullshit, because, according to Rasmussen:

Eighty-seven percent (87%) of Fox News viewers say they are likely to vote for John McCain (circa August 6).

They've also consistently had a much higher base of Republican than Democrat viewers and they are far more likely to still believe Iraq had WMD, that Saddam was instrumental in proving 9/11, and all that other assorted horseshit bill of goods.

MSNBC makes CNN look great. Still don't care for them though.

I am dying for a network that does not take any sides and literally just reports the news as it is.

And yet MSNBC is owned by a company who produces afterburning turbofans, miniguns, and many parts for nuclear weapons.

I don't understand how anyone can watch Fox news.

People generally like to congregate with those who share their views, even if they are insulting to the intelligence of anyone not going full retard.

I admittedly lean toward Fox but I laugh whenever they say "fair and balanced" Complete BS!! heh

I would rather watch BBC at this point though.

H&C cracks me up when they get that 4 person panel on there arguing and you don't hear a word anyone says. Complete waste of time.

MSNBC makes CNN look great.CNN is a spastic puppy, and has been for years.

MSNBC has its share of retards and ridiculous running with non-stories, but people like Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd propel MSNBC so far above CNN and Fox that it's not even a contest.

Its probably because every time I pop MS on, it's Matthews and Olberman more than anyone else.

LOL@Rachel Maddow. Why not just put a Kennedy on the air? I do like Chuck Todd though. He's practically sane.

I find it amusing that each side will attack the news source of the other.

If you are a conservative 'Hamas' claims them all to be retarded yet he will support the other mainstream media that omit virtually anything that is going as it should with the administration and focus on the things that are going against the democrats agenda.

FOX is biased, but at least when you tune in you know they are biased, the other sources want you to believe they are not ... total BS and the liberals buy it.

Of course, the fact that they give her Pat Buchanan to punch on so often is a bit unsporting, but it's still hilarious.

No, I'm serious. Everyday they show plain senate committee meetings, votes on the floor, and special speaking events.

Fair and balanced?? That's makes me laugh every time. Hearing O'Reilly proclaim it is hysterical. Fox is the gutter of news.

Uh, good luck with that one. I question, is that even possible since the country is heavily divided between 2 parties ?

Those percentages aren't really that surprising. I would imagine that many Democrats watch Fox News (and listen to Rush, etc.) so they can get themselves all worked up into a tizzy.
