Easy solution. Just watch the news segments/programs. I always watch Beck (he's the only one exposing hussein and his criminal administration), rarely if ever watch Hannity or O'Reilly.

Try fox between 5pm and 7pm central time.

you will find balanced news the first our being political news with a balanced approach including both liberal and conservative and moderates in a round table discussion about what is happing

the second hour dealing with the rest of the world/national news that has little to do with politics.

When I read your comment that Fox is not number 1 in Mexico, is probably because Mexicans are more concerned with what is going on in their own country than in the US. I don't see why it would be number 1 in Mexico.
Hmmm, did I say MEXICO? I thought I typed NEW MEXICO.

Why Do So Many People Think New Mexico Is Part Of Mexico

Well when their attorneys say... they don't have to tell the truth,its entertainment. then It seems you need to pair Faux against similar shows...

Jerry Springer

Maury Povich

(No disrespect intended to those two) They admit to being entertainment... well guess Fox does too

Historically speaking.
There is plenty wrong with the Government advising the press to watch their "free speech".

Just like Joy Behar on CNN's HLN channel?

Indeed, the cross section for MSNBC or CNN would mirror your analysis of FOX news, just switch conservative to liberal. All the digs on FOX apply to MSNBC and, to a lessor extent, CNN as well. The difference though is that FOX News and many of their fans like to actively deny that they are a Republican mouthpiece. Why not just admit it? Why not brand it "the voice of the conservative movement" or something? You don't see MSNBC so actively pretending to be something that they are not (fair and balanced).

The label of racist is quickly losing its power because of random usage like this.

You have a good point, but I wouldn't go as far to say that MSNBC is pretending, their reporting is just as biased to their liberal audience as to Fox's conservative audience.

But the president and the WH advisors don't seem to have a problem with a news network that sees eye to eye with the WH.
