Got a Fox Story from my parents television cable. Several weeks before the election Fox was blocked from their television cable. I had to chuckle because weeks prior to this block the programmers had put the Fox Channel almost at the end of the programs. After the election, Fox reappeared back in the top 10 programs. This brings back memories where JD chewed the controller and it was tuned to Fox. What a horrible way to awake with a blaring television viewing a channel that is not watched in our home. JD almost didn't become part of the family that day.

I am heading into my 10th year I blocked fox and still have it blocked, I found them too offensive and they encourage people to hurt others if they disagree with them and they say stupid things that has no basis in reality. 2003 was the first year a strong movement against that network began.

I dislike their commentary because they proceed into discussions and behave in a manner that people can't think for themselves or that people or unwilling to check out information for themselves. It is very noneffective reporting to me from my point of view. The salaries was what surprised me and even their wardrobe salaries.

I don't watch it because it is way too biased. I do read their website though because it's actually hilarious to compare it to other news sites. As of early this morning, the whole country and every news site was talking about the fiscal cliff. What was Fox News website talking about?? Hillary Clinton and Benghazi. Jesus. They are a never ending propaganda machine.

Of course they want to divert attention away from the fiscal cliff talks--it's their party that is going to cause the economic collapse.

I think the people that watch Fox are just too lazy to think for themselves. They like to be told how to think.

It's good to know that I am not the only one that has this opinion. I've seen many people who will quote Fox News like it was something Jesus said. I just sit back and think what idiots they are.

Fox commentators follow a script and they are not too bright either and when they get called out on their BS they play victim and never admits they make mistakes, which puts them as entertainers.

At least MSNBC has to follow journalistic standards and issue corrections despite whatever side they take. MSNBC leaned conservative and so did Chris Matthews, he was an embarrassment gushing over Bush's theatrics on the aircraft carrier, Bush gave that "mission accomplished speech and the scroll at the bottom at the same time showed bombing and many deaths to soldiers in Iraq were happening the same time he gave it.
I shhok my head over that ordeal.

I actually used to watch Fox. Shortly after 9/11, I started watching it. But within a few years of the wars, I noticed that Fox was telling a vastly different story than everyone else was and no matter what happened with Bush, they would always spin it. Then during the election of 2004, it was obvious that they were just a propaganda arm for the republican party.

It's sad that so many base their opinions on what they see on Fox. There's nothing more dangerous to a nation than an uninformed, or in the case of Fox, a misinformed population.

Yes, it did. I think it moved to the left because of Fox. Honestly, I would prefer that news stations just stayed neutral. Their job is to inform. Cable news seems to feel the need to not only tell us the news but they also want to tell us how to feel about it.

I do like Morning Joe because it is a "somewhat" balanced approach. Joe is republican--albeit a moderate one--and they usually have a balanced panel on there for discussions.

What you say about them being entertainers, I've argued that with some of the guys I work with for a long time. That's all Rush "Lameballs" is too, an entertainer following a script. I seriously can not understand why so many are so morbidly gullible that they can not see this. I'm beginning to think that John Boehner is an entertainer also. And not a very good one at that.

Very true about a nation being misinformed population. Even on radio talk shows I've noticed the amount of manipulation the commentator is using...for example, one talk show host was saying to the listeners I need your help to know what to say to help move the facts to the correct political leaders. Oh please, a talk show host on a radio can even refuse callers and cut them off at a drop of a hat. The show I am discussing was about gun control and many people were talking about not wanting their 2nd Amendment touched and were making wild speculations that the only way people would give back their guns would be by a military search and seizure and the word confiscate was used plus the person discussing the call even stated that it might be possible for this type of search and seizure be done 2 time a year. I thought to myself what a typical puppet. I've even had people around me say they don't break laws, but they would hide their guns if needed...in our terrain that would not be a difficult task.

The thing about Fox most of their News Anchors or show hosts have been on CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, and etc.... If they see someone people like on another network, they go offer a multi million dollar contract and hire them....
As for me I just watch Fox News for the Comedy, nothing is better then laughing at Bill O'Rielys or Greg Gutfeld opinions...
Only shows I do like is Judge Jeanine and Geraldo.... Most of the reporters i could care less for, but most of the women are eye-candy....

Yep, and gun control is a great example of one of those very divisive subjects. I'm a gun owner. I go out once a month to a local range and will waste and hour blasting away at a target. I enjoy it very much, but I agree that something needs to be done about nuts getting their hands on guns.

Talk radio, however, is making it sound like people are going to come in and take your guns away. That's not the case. All this chicken little crying wolf thing is getting very old. We need to have some grown up conversations here in this country and one thing is for sure--when Fox News republicans are around, it just can't be done.

Rush has a questionable history proir to 1988 when he got his gig, following the lifting of the fairness doctrine, which demanded opposing opinions in political discussions, which was in effect for about 40 years. He was basically an employee of the RNC who actually directed his content until the internet and Drudge/"News"busters is who directs his drivel, when they show him talking, his computer is always shown on those two sites.

He never voted or was involved into political discussions until his late 30's he had family connections and was never poor and was able to find DJ work all over the country. He was a radio DJ who wanted to be a sportscaster and had a small sports background and his later success was a fluke.
