Perhaps they should drop all pretense of being "fair and balance." Perhaps "We tell the RWNJ what they want to hear" would be a better moniker?

Even conservatives think this one is over the line.

I'm actually fine with it-- I just wish Fox would come out and be more honest about what they are doing... as if anyone truly believes they are fair and balanced.

I agree. It's practically Orwellian in their case.

Great. And waiting for CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, CNBC to admit their lack of balance and lack of coverage of what they don't want the public to see and hear.......

Oh, good. So you admit that Fox News is not "fair and balanced".

Puh-lease, what a load of crap. CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post. Need we go on with all the leftwing *news* organizations all against one cable network that does a far better job of fair and balanced reporting and guests on their opinion shows than all these organizations combined.

Absolute garbage daily from you lefties.

It's interesting how some of you can't defend Fox News's slogan, so you have to lash out at every other network.

Telling people not to take your direction, while you 24/7 attack Republicans, is pretty much hypocritical, dont you agree?

The only distinction I see between Fox, and MSNBC, is Fox will spend all day criticizing Obama, and MSNBC spends all day bashing Fox.

Sorry but bashing other tv channels doesnt make what you report "news".

No doubt-- MSNBC is liberal. Other networks-- Sorry, that's baloney. They only appear liberal next to Fox's unbridled conservatism that doesn't seem to be bound by the truth.

When even your slogan is dishonest, how do you expect to have credibility to repost news journalistically? Let's look at what happened here. A "news" network made a political commercial that was not balanced, journalistic or even wholly accurate. Like the conservative author of the article stated, what place is it for a "news" network to do this? The obvious answer: Fox is not a news network. They are a propaganda network. Again... That's fine. Just don't lie about it.

I have yet to see someone defend Fox on this-- versus just attack MSNBC... which according to at least one Mod would be O/T.

Commercials don't run during shows and at the end they tell you who paid for them. This was an in-house made montage.

I agree with you again. And I also believe that the majority of news media have a liberal bias. I just wish Fox News would admit their conservative bias.

For anyone interested in media bias, this is a great book:

Amazon.com: Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind (9781250002761): Tim Groseclose PhD: Books

It's easy to read, but it's not a rant. It's based on real, data-driven studies on political leanings in the news media.
