Please back-up your assertion with facts. I am very bi-partisan and Fox's extreme bias really turns me off (as does MSNBC's, though it's enacted to a lesser degree. Their commentators are liberal, but their news is more balanced).

Lol. Fox News has "extreme" bias? Looks like YOU don't have the facts!

2008 election coverage

Fox News
Negative stories about McCain--- 40%
Negative stories about Obama--- 40%

MSNBC

Negative stories about Obama--- 14%

President Obama fared far worse on Fox News Channel's "Special Report" than on the broadcast networks or the prestige press—only 23% positive v. 77% negative evaluations.

Unlike the other outlets we analyzed, FOX has been consistent in the tone of its coverage, with 21% positive evaluations during the administration's first 100 days and 25% positive evaluations since then.
77% negative from this study:

Why Liberals are AFRAID of FOX news
Because they lie, and we're afraid sheepies (people) will believe their lies. We liberals want people to believe the truth, not the misconceptions, lies, and fear mongering of right wing fanatics. And, hey, faux, isn't news. It's certainly something, but it ain't news.

ummm....people aren't AFRAID of Fox News.....they're afraid that someone is actually going to watch it and believe half the babble that's spewed. Like people that listen to Beck and actually take it as news they should listen to and take seriously - as opposed to realizing it's a man who's paid millions of dollars to do an ENTERTAINMENT show on TV.

and I would say just visa versa; have you watched enought FOX to realize the balance? Sheppard Smith: moderate: Juan Williams: moderate to liberal: Greta, liberal: Covuto: moderate: the early morning crew, ultra conservative: Bill O'Reilly fair with his guests, but leans conservative: Sean, conservative and Beck, who knows???Just pretty much off the wall.

and where do we get the truth you are talking about? By watching the news in some little town inNM? How often have you watched Fox news?

Greeting's,

The more the constant grumbling's and endless complaints continue from these folks ..... the more likely it appears that they are experiencing a massive dose of functionally disabling "Fear" !!!

It would certainly be hoped that the intense "Fear Factor" among evidently such a small number of dedicated "Liberals", regarding the Fox News Program would not continue to produce such prolonged incidents of major mental "Meltdown" !!!

I associate with many Liberal Democrats, & Republicans, and Independents, and these folks (especially the liberal folks ) are in fact frankly embarassed by the constant "Goofey" actions and attitudes of the so called "Main Stream Liberals". The liberals I know simply do not approve !!! "Fox News Does Not Produce Any Fear In These Guys and Girls" and they do watch it ..... with an open mind of course !!!

So to all those other "Liberals" ..... Lighten Up ! It's absolutely OK to disagree with Fox News if you so desire ! This is America afterall and we have the "Right" to disagree with each other regarding politics and Fox News !

Please Do Not "Fear Fox News" ..... It just ain't worth it !!!

Thank You / Lamar

My favorite in the group is also Megyn Kelly. It is her voice that I like to hear but her legs didn't look bad either. She was very pregnant up to about 3 weeks ago and has been on leave since then. I can't wait for her to get back.

Megyn is not at all just a beautiful woman but she is also a lawyer or was when she started broadcasting. I think that only fools or lefties would think she is not a very intelligent woman.

Now the best looking one on Fox, to me, is Martha McCollum. She is also very intelligent and can hold her end of any kind of discussion with righties or lefties.

Actually if more of you people watched these people reporting the news with an open mind you would see that these women may lean a bit right but are also very intelligent and can do the job very well.

CNN had the best looking and my favorite voice up to the time they sent her to Iraq early in 2003. Daryn Kagan is still my favorite news reader. She left them after coming back and started her own news blog.

The most politically leaning star, outside the MSNBC woman, Maddow, is Kyra Phillips. She is so obviously left leaning that I never liked to watch her. My most unfavorite female news star is Soledad O'Brien who CNN thinks is so great.
