how can people take fox news seriously?

i don't understand how such a biased network can get away with thinking they are serious. Liberals have there own bias news commentary shows, all of which are openly comical and even make fun of themselves. i think inoredr to stay legitament they should change there name to "conservative opinions." or something more along the lines of what they really are, which excludes the word news.

    Well FOX news is the only news that dont go out of there way to insult America.The news they report on might have a conservatve slant.If you want liberal news you got cnn,nbc,abc,cbs,etc etc.I would rather listen to news that is pro America instead of all the liberal crap thats constantly trying to undermine the nation.If you knew anything about the world you would know that there is true evil out there trying to change our way of life.You liberal buggers run around with rose colored glasses on thinking that everyone in the world has life,liberty,and the pursuit of happiness in thier constitution.Well you just fly over to Iran and talk crap about there goverment and see what happens to you.

    I think Fox for all the ill will driven by the left, is probably the least biased among all the "alphabet" networks. CBS has adopted the poster child of liberal theology as it's spokeperson, Katie Couric is probably one of the most shrill liberal I know of. prior to that it was Dan (Bend the truth to fit my political agenda) Rather.

    Fact is, NBC, ABC, CBS, CBC, CNN all spew forth liberal slants.Fox does some slanting but not to the extent, and good God the competition has been doing it since Uncle Walty came back from Nam after the Tet Offensive in 1968 with brain damage from Agent Orange.

    Fair and Balanced in my book is reporting facts, Fox has a larger number of "Meet the Press" style venues, and it's perceived this format is offensive to people of the secular liberal theology.

    I would have to say that when Fox News actually just reports the news, it might actually be fair and balanced. the problem is that it probably only just reports the news 10% of the time. The remainder of the time is spent as cheer leading for Bush and spreading hate toward non-Republicans. it should be the Fox Opinion Channel with brief news highlights.

    curiously an excellent form of folk in u.s. do! yet Fox information independent? no longer likely. despite in the event that they are asserting they're. you may no longer get extra conservative than Fox New! This community do extra bashing of the present administration than the different community. i understand for a fact that maximum of my Republican pals watch this station fairly completely. i'm an self sufficient so i will bash the Republicans and Democrats alike. So once you're a conservative and want an ego develop, bypass watch Fox information which will perk you up! somewhat it does...you need to work out my pals...

    I find you sadly mistaken my friend. Fox News is an organization that tries to be fair and balanced by providing its viewers with both sides of an agenda. And yes they have alot of fun doing it. These are NOT just conservative opinions although they do have a tendency to lean towards a more traditional path of thinking which I like because this country is going to HELL in a handbasket, and if more Americans would get back to their traditional values that used to be the pride of this country we wouldn't have so many problems with crime, or our youth today.

    Fox is Republican owned.

    Have to take their news with a grain of salt. If you notice, they dont even name Democratic politicians unless they are being arrested or investigated. They just say "the Democratic Senator from XXX". Pretty sad...

    I watch several news stations during the day just to make sure I get all the news, and then watch the BBC and TV Tokyo for what they cut out of our news here in the US.

    Fox New's rating's are going down the tubes. It's too bad that the monies being spent by Murdoch on Rush, O'reilly,Hannity & Colmes, etc etc aren't used towards something more useful to society. When the Dems bring back the Fairness in Reporting Doctrine to the media outlets--maybe things will change!!

    Spare me your biased opinions. You claim Fox is conservative you you seem to ignore the fact that the vast majority of TV and cable news outlets are Liberal in the extreme. ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN are all documented to be very left wing in their "news" perspective.

    Because unfortunately there are a lot of idiots and nutjobs in America who will believe (and repeat) anything as long as it comes from a source whose opinions are in line with theirs. These idiots and nutjobs have a tendency to band together and call themselves Republicans.

    Fox News is fair and balanced, they report, you decide. Because they are the ONLY fair and balanced network, they're different. But think about this. When have they FORGED DOCUMENTS and claimed them to be real, like CBS and Dan Rather? Fox always offers both sides of everything. What's wrong with being biased TOWARD America? After all, they're an American network. I guess it's hard for commie pinko america-hating fags to understand.
