Actually there is considerable dispute about that. You'll find many Democrats who will support the view that it's extremely fair and balanced. Making a statement like this is simply ludicrous.

As a Republican and as someone who watches Fox along with other cable news (even network just to keep it fair), I can tell you that if Fox were Republican I would agree with them all the time.

I don't. I just don't scream at the TV as much as when I watch either MSNBC or NBC so it's better for my blood pressure.

The thing that makes me upset is when Obama said he picked Biden. Fox still brought people on talking about Hillary's delegates not going to Obama, and what if Obama's supporters didn't like the pick. I doubt very much McCain will have the negative spin when he pick his VP on Fox they gave Obama. That said Fox is republican so thats what you should expect the same way MSNBC is liberal. I will still watch Fox because I like Shep Smith.

The only reason it won't happen is we are not in the same situation the Democrats are. There is a large group of Clinton supporters who are beyond upset that (1) she didn't get the nomination and (2) she didn't get chosen for the VP slot.

There is no like scenerio for the Republicans. If there were, the same type of coverage would occur.

I had to stop watching Fox this morning because the endless coverage fawning over Biden was beyhond nauseating. Sky views, street views, all waiting for this mere mortal to walk out of his house!!!!

What are we coming to? What is the big deal about a man who didn't come close to winning the nomination walking out of his house to get in a waiting car?

Is it really just me? Or is the world going slightly mad?

Obama has opened up yet another can of worms.

Obama promised that wives were off limits and what did he do? He lied and broken a promise, but then again what did McCain expect.

Lets have at it, I am sure Obama will want to run and hide with all his family issues.

Like someone said and eye for and eye and the Obama/Biden soccer team is running out of eyes.

You wouldn't understand anyway. If you were informed you would know that Obama put out an ad attacking Cindy McCain.

But you are not too informed or you would know that, and wow, you get to vote.

Sure CNN is biased, but it's a lot better than most others and offers far more balance than some.

And I would agree that there are none that are totally devoid of any bias. But the argument here is that Fox is not only biased, but "Republican", and to some therefore "faux"!!! And this is just ridiculous.

There are biased commentators on Fox who are Democrats and also ones who are Republican .. it's called balance.

Yes. They usually have "both sides" on the table. Unlike MSNBC, who will have Mathews, Mitchell, Gregory and another lib to give us their punditry.

That's fair and balanced?
