It's not just about bias either, I've made this point dozens of times.
There is no totally unbiased source, none.
The issue isn't only Fox's Right-Wing bias, it's also simply the poor quality of their reporting.
Take any 24 hour period of time and see how much time they dedicate to pundit shows, how much time they dedicate to fashion news or Royal Wedding Extravaganza, see how much time they ddedicate to "discussing the political strategies" instead of the substance of bills themselves, see how much they spend reporting on their own Fox News Polls. See how much time they spend making snarky jokes and pitting bloggers against each other to shout one another down. If you include the pundit shows (because they are part of Fox News programming), see how much time they spend talking about stupid shit like OBAMAS BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
now, turn it over a foreign network like Al Jazeera English, and see what their programming consists of. just watch a few hours.
watch their news news.
watch their analysis.
watch their discussion panel shows.
watch their pundit/opinion shows.
it's a no-brainer - I'm not gonna say they are unbiased, because that's just not true, but if you turn it over right now, you'll see they have quality Journalism.
This is really all it takes, if you are determined to surround yourself in an echo chamber then there's nothing I can sayto convince you othertwise, but if you take just a few hours to explore other networks you'll see what I mean.
Take the Test!!
Watch what is on air right now on Fox News
Watch what is on air right now on Al Jazeera English
see what they are both airing, it speaks for itself
(as I posted this, Fox was talking about Donald Trump running for President, AJE is talking about the Syrian government cracking down on protesters and the possibility of western powers intervening, with interviews on the ground.)

Useless, mate. Useless.

In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

I had a feeling if I typed too many words it would result in this, so let's just focus on the one question at a time
I'll make it simple: how many times are the words "Socialist" and "Marxist" uttered on air on Fox News? how many times do they have Socialists or Marxists on air to speak?
really though, this isn't about me trying to convince you, like I said if you wantt o surround yourself in an echo chamber then that's what you're going to believe.
i provided links though for both Fox News live and AJE Live. anyone can click and watch for 10 minutes and see exactly what I mean.

You are utterly incapable of citing any sort of evidence of bias in Fox's news, but instead scream and howl about their opinion shows. It's exactly as I knew it would be: you are not capable of distinguishing news from opinion.
It's the same with all Leftists. I've known this for years. Leftists are simply too dishonest to face the fact that their stereotypes do not hold water.Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

On air right now is "America Live!", earlier they asserted that townhall videos from 2009 were organic, and claimed that democratic congressmen are "orchestrating" a movement to plant liberals in republican townhalls.
they skipped right over the subtance of the issue, the bils in question, and spent the entire segment asking 'if these organized democratic plants disrupting townhalls will ahve the same effect as the organic tea party people who influenced the health care debate".
sentences like that are used constantly on Fox, and carry so many implicit assumptions, and it is these implicit assumptions that are biased.
shall I continue? i'm watching Fox News right nowOriginally Posted by Adam Smith - Wealth of Nations

A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
