Intelligence does not always come wrapped in sheep skin. Some of the dumbest people I've met have Master's degree's. Sometimes its more about money and influence that makes one prominent in business, the media, or politics.,And most of those on FIXED News come from it, those who don't, like Hannity, are accepted for their slavish devotion to Rupert's talking points and their ability to act as convincing salespersons of FIXED News propaganda

Actually I think the OP is working under the assumption that their comments are cutting edge and witty. Which is also laughable.

Why is it that Foxnews broadcast from the Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, New York, one of the most liberals states and one of the most liberal counties.
It's so liberal, that New York county (Manhattan) was won by Obama in 2008 with 85% of the votes?

Is Foxnews afraid of being close to conservatives?
Why do they rather live in a liberal state?
This has to be one of the most pointless topics I have ever seen on here. Who cares?

First I'll explain in case you don't know... the FOX TELEVISION NETWORK has what are called AFFILIATES (what you call t.v. stations) spread all across the country in what are called MARKETS, just like all the major television networks ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN have. CNN has the fewest because they don't have affiliates but satellite offices and they are headquartered in Atlanta.

All of the major news networks have their headquarters in New York City, it's a news media capital. There are affiliates across the nation in other cities which are "red states". NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, FOX. Those are the big 5.

I don't understand your point.

So you think we should be divided like the Mason Dixon line and only have the libby stations in the north and the conservative nations in the south?

and what is wrong with that or do you think there is anything wrong? Is there a branch of the media that isn't in it to make money?

Fox News is owned by NewsCorp, which established its headquarters in NYC a long time ago, for economic reasons.
