Fox News: Fair and Balanced?

Every news site on the internet has the 7.8 unemployment news as its lead. Fox is burying it and surrounding it with right wing propaganda. How can you someone who only watches Fox news be well informed? Does anyone really think they are fair and balanced?

Did we have a large number of people run out of unemployment benefits that just don’t count anymore?

Change in how the poll was Taken?

Are we now counting the Obama and Romney people hired to follow the other guy around and heckle the speeches?


I’m calling shenanigans.

Fox leans right but they give more time to the left than all the drive by medias combined.

Yeah, it's a more credible kind of biased story.

If a news team is fair and balanced then they report the news as they see it, without any skew. They don't report the news as they see it, without any skew. Therefore they are not fair and balanced.

How can you someone who only watches Fox news be well informed? Does anyone really think they are fair and balanced?
I think this is the core question that some here haven't truly responded to. The answer is that someone can't. The same would go for any source of news.

What I think is both baffling and frightening is the number of folks out there who will not only dismiss other news sources, but also refuse to even watch them. Statements like "I'd never watch/listen to/read [Rachel Maddow/Bill O'Riley/The Daily Show/Lawrence O'Donnell/NPR/Rush Limbaugh/Michael Savage/the New York Times/The Wall Street Journal] because they're [communists/fascists]," reveal short sidedness and insecurity in your beliefs. When you aggregate coverage and discussion you might find that you have an opinion that lies on either side. Here's a decent example, I think..

When the UN was in town some media outlets were going berserk over the fact that Obama didn't meet with any foreign leaders and went on the View instead. Putting aside choosing to be on the View for a moment and only focusing on the decision not to meet with other leaders, this was reported by some as something that would offend other countries and leaders. If you watched a single news source you might have taken this at face value. If you watched the Daily Show after Sean Hannity you would have seen the king of Jordan who was asked about what the impact was. He said pretty clearly that it really wasn't a big deal to anyone and that the other leaders weren't even talking about it.

People with this sort of world view are more than willfully ignorant. They are frighteningly ignorant. They clearly choose to follow their selected flavor of news...even spouting off their unchallenged opinions on the internet only to respond to opposing opinion with such well thought out and thought provoking responses like "fail" or quoting the message and using the passive aggressive gif.

If you choose to disagree on political issues that's fine. But don't expect your opinion to carry much weight if you aren't confident enough in your beliefs or mature as an adult and citizen to listen to and consider other viewpoints.

The way Fox is more fair and balanced is not which way they lean but what stories they choose to run..


Most of your ABC,NBC,CBS,MSNBC types only show stories that don't put Obama in a bad light and if they have to show one of the stories it is only for a short time.

Fox hold republicans feet to the fire as well as Dems, other networks only want to hold Repubs feet to the fire for a long time.

Fox has opinion shows.. Fox and Friends, Oreilly , Hannity, are Conservative shows and if they could make money with a Liberal show they would have one but nobody watches that stuff for the most part. Their News at 6 pm is Non Bias and Shep Smith is a Liberal himself and shows it from time to time but he is not what I would call Biased in his reporting . Now go to MSNBC if you want to see Hardcore Bias... they are sickening but thats what they do and they have a small audience...

Why exactly is it sickening? Merely because you disagree? Because their opinion shows start earlier in the day than they do on Fox? Do you watch enough of the whopping half hour per night of national news from ABC/NBC/CBS to form what you think is a rational opinion?

FOX News itself is fair and balanced. Its the commentary shows that swing towards the right.

Here is a fact. You are a retarded mule. Here is another fact. This is a worthless thread full of worthless bullshit started by a half comatose veteran of The Social Wars. Wtf is the point of starting a poll when he already believes, correctly I might add, that Fox news is a biased news outlet??? We all know it is biased...since like 2000 and shit. They are ALL biased! It's how they get people to watch, some networks get watched more than others, of course. Libtards just can't stand the fact that Fox takes Rachel out behind the ratings woodshed every night for a good stuffing. Typical lib drama queens. jfc...
