I am not 35 or younger and I don't watch cabe news. I get my news from the Internet and I lIke to read English language sources from all over the world to get various points of view. E.g. I know that AL Jazeera is biased in it's coverage (about as much as Fox or CNN in theirs) but knowing that I can filter what they are saying and still get good info. Then there are the German and British publications that tend to be more centrist and measured in their approach to reporting. There's absolutely no reason anymore to subject yourself to the round the clock propaganda and fear mongering of Fox and CNN.

Any so called "NEWS" station that hires people like Sarah Palin can't be taken seriously. I don't care much for the "democrat" on there either. He is just used as a shill in this conservative scam at news. It's mostly fawning over Republicans and demonizing Democrats.

You just described CNN as well.

This is way to good not to share, can I Tweet this out!?
Pretty funny, actually. Plus the name fits them if you consider how many times they've been caught lying:

FOX's file: | PunditFact

Of course Fox always uses the same BS excuse "our pundits are expressing opinions" even when they are purposefully misleading their audience with their big fat lies.

Fox is as far to the right of the spectrum as MSNBC is to the left. Unfortunately, most Fox viewers believe precisely this issue, they say that there is no far right media outlet and that Fox is the center. It should really beg the question about their perspective. When selling advertising space is valuable and there is no other media source farther to the right, it indicates that there is no viable market for ideals any farther to the right. The most logical conclusion is that anyone standing beside Fox is simply already all the way to the right end of the viable spectrum.
You are confusing what the democrats and republicans (as parties) want to maintain and exercise control over with the political spectrum (communism and central control on the far far left, true anarchy and libertarianism with decentralized control on the far far right).

The two parties want to control different things in different ways, but both want an expanded state with more centralized control over the citizenry. Fox represents the republican views on what should be controlled, but that is hardly a far right position, it's just a different list.

I don't watch Fox News or MSNBC. Only watch CNN when there's breaking news or election coverage. When I want the truth I do my own research. Lots of information available on the web, just gotta know how to seperate fact from fiction.

Please don't tell me you think Palin is worse than Sharpton. At least Palin was a governor and contributed something. What has Sharpy ever done?

I'm sure some left wing liberal, in an effort to discredit a source or entity he saw as not not in lockstep with his political views, coined the name "Faux News". As happens among their ilk, his liberal peers thought it was clever and picked up the name, it spread among liberals and their bandwagon members as a cool and clever way to show ones liberalism and how "with it" one is. It's been regurgitated ad nauseum by liberals and wannabes, including those who never watch FOX news and know nothing about it. And I imagine those who use it fancy themselves so clever when they do.

I agree with you. Besides the other publications you mention, if you can find original sources (such as old local newpaper articles, court transcripts, or transcripts of state and federal legislative proceedings or laws, copies of communication among the involved parties, whatever applies), these might provide information that is less likely to bejaded by political or personak perspectives.
