But FOX sure seems to get under Obama's skin. Isn't that the media's job? To keep the President on his toes?

Strange post - pretending balance but endorsing the opposite.
** Since when is a "fair and balanced" news media supposed to have the agenda of getting under someone's skin?
** Since when is lying and fabrication a good tool for doing that? Fox "News" trademark slogan is "We report, you decide" - meaning "We are objectively reporting the unadulterated facts".
** Are you not aware of the hypocrisy of Fox on the Benghazi story?
** You don't like Fox? Sounds otherwise to me. For instance what is Obama's "agenda"? That's right out of the mouths of Fox and its many contributors.
** You don't know the difference between Fox and MSNBC? If you don't know about Roger Ailes, then you are surely getting your "news" from RW media.
** Do you know the 35-year history of RW political media versus that of "leftist" media?
** If you believe the media should incessantly criticize a Democratic President, then shouldn't it do the same for a more consequential and influential Republican Congress?

So you listen to both sides and don't like either, but you speak of Obama's "agenda". What is the source of your objective news and information? Please share!

The Fox tactic is to book democrats as "guests" then jerk them around as much as possible. The Fox moderator is in control and steers the conversation.
What Fox "liberals" are there? You undoubtedly mean this guy.
With Fox News Liberals, Who Needs Conservatives?

Yeah, that was me. Why couldn't you name me?

That's alright though. I think your opinion matters little.

Since you're from Canada, why do you care about any of these issues? What's it to you? Besides, you have enough problems in your own country, and you don't even have free speech or a free press there.

No one is jealous of the losers.
Here's what RW media doesn't tell you: media ownership has its privileges. The media is owned by corporate conservatives and they sometimes allow alternative views in order to appear "fair and balanced".
Funny though, when "leftist" democratic voices become too popular as to compete with the favored RW "stars", they are summarily dropped by conservative management.
Use your RW brain, it's not all about ratings. Democrats win elections, yet the American media is dominated by RW corporate propaganda. Tell you anything?
Yeah, that's it - democratic-leaning voters across America want to hear how awful they are, daily 24/7. So much for "ratings".

If FOX can defeat Obama's agenda he doesn't stand a a chance against Putin or any of the other crazy world leaders. That is an admision Obama is a pushover and the Syrians, Afghanistnais, Iraqis Iraniins are eating his lunch. Obama would not have been re-elected without the DOJ, IRS and FBI and of course the media propaganda machine. Too bad his strategy doesn't work outside the USA.

Oh yeah, how dare those foreigners speak out against America's fascist right wing!! You're really not aware that American foreign policy affects them? They should be silenced! Heil!
No free speech in Canada?? Wow, you're really in the fact-free RW bubble. Nice and soothing in there, eh?

He should be awfully lucky that FOX only carries the Super Bowl every three years, otherwise we'd all get to watch Bill O'Reilly show him up and display his ineptitude every single year,

The fact that Sunday's Super Bowl was the most watched TV event of all time in the US certainly didn't bother most of us who've known since he was first sworn in what a bitter thin-skinned lightweight he is, while the rest of the country is finally beginning to realize just how inept and unqualified he is to be President, and whose policies based on centralized command-and-control operating systems which include unchecked and unfettered liberalism-fixated economic policies never work and never will.

ObamaCare will be his legacy as well as his party's forever, and especially as the worst is yet to come, as millions more continue to lose their health insurance, their doctors, as well as access to the nation's and the world's best hospitals and medical centers thanks to the rampant rationing required thanks to the numerous mandates within this bill.

Nice try, but not true. You just don't want to admit that Fox News is nowhere near as biased as the leftists claim.

As for your "source," an obvious left-wing site.

And your sources??
** I know exactly what Fox is - America's voice of corporate fascism.
** Define a "leftist", I don't believe you know. According to RW media, including Fox, ideologies like Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan, and GWB are partly or mostly "leftist". Remember when Bush said slavery is a "crime against humanity"? Limbaugh for one was all over him for that. Remember when Reagan raised taxes? Remember when Nixon opened dialog with Red China?
And who partners with Red China today as favored trading partners with its unregulated and dirt-cheap indentured labor force? The corporate repub base.
Here is the ideal republican factory.
Revealed: Inside Apple's Chinese 'sweatshop' factory where workers are paid just 1.12 per hour | Mail Online
Bloomberg: Suicides Among China Factory Workers Surge, Labor Group Says
Bangladesh Factory Fire Kills 120 - WSJ.com

There is way too much to post on this, but you get the message. This is the stuff that Fox amd RW media promote as "good business". They obviously don't like fires and suicides coming to light because - well - it's all bad PR, but remember this is dirt-cheap labor and these workers are easily replaced - what's not to like?
Point is, promoting these business models represents Fox's agenda over that of Obama and progressive democrats.
