    lol it doesn't matter

    this is so obvious, this is such a no-brainer, i don't even have to construct any fancy arguments or logical proofs

    it is as simple as this:


    Watch what is on air right now on Fox News
    http://live.foxnews.com/

    Watch what is on air right now on Al Jazeera English
    http://www.youtube.com/aljazeeraenglish

    see what they are both airing, it speaks for itself

    Well I guess I can't know that, I can only judge by what they air.

    And yet the idiot savants trolls here will gladly look the other way at how many program segments MSNBC ran on the same issue. To the point where Pat Buchanan called them "obsessed" while on the MSNBC Live program.

    30 minutes of one show that day was nothing but birther BS.

    Tingles did three separate segments and Larry O'Donnell did ten minutes worth.

    And that's just on one day! Maddow The North Dakota Nut job...they are all far more obsessed with the birther issue than Fox News.

    They will ignore the fact a former Clinton staffer turned ABC morning show host held up a copy of the birth certificate and forced Michelle Bachman to look at it.

    Useful idiots the entire lot of them.

    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.
    Or as frank puts it "Liberals lie all the time."

    yes MSNBC is garbage, absolute garbage. i can't even watch this shit, and I have a high tolerance for awful.

    CNN is pathetic too, it's the stupid facebook twitter update channel for news about Iphone Apps and celebrity gossip

    all of the American cable news networks are terrible, Fox News just sets the Bar so high, and the others follow suit. Also Fox News is the most blatant obvious arm of the far right wing.

    in the end, all of these garbage networks, with their apparent disagreements, serve to saturate the airwaves with stupid tripe, dumb down the national discourse, and prevent anyone from having a substantial debate on the important issues facing our country.

    Petitio Principii. It's a no-brainer to you, because you are seeing what you want to see, relative to your pre-conceived opinions. Maybe Fox news calls Obamacare by it's title is because it is Obama's baby legislation and crowning achievement, and not some conspiracy of bias. Maybe, just maybe, they air segments highlighting the abject and absolute failure of Obama's economic policies, because so far, they have failed miserably, and that's the truth.

    Then you throw in Guilt By Association because of Fox's right wing opinion shows and finish it off with a dash of False Dilemma by comparing Fox and it's Guilt By Association to AJE portrayed as a supposedly unbiased source.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. 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."

    I'm willing to admit the biases in my news sources because I'm not an intellectual baby who needs to pretend that I HAVE A HOLD ON TRUTH.

    Every news source is biased, every single one. There is no such thing as an unbiased news source, even if you have no opinion segments whatsoever, the words you choose to use, the amount of time you spend on various segments, even the stories you decide are worthy of news time , all of these necessary editory processes will always produce bias.

    If you think that your favorite news network is unbiased then you are either lying or dumb.

    The only show I really watch on Fox is Red Eye, and Beck occasionally, both of which are opinion shows. I'm just pointing out that your arguments are very, very weak. Fox news is no more biased than MSNBC or other "liberal" networks. Progressives just like to latch on to the bias of Fox News as a way to explain away public anger over their failed policies. It's a progressive crutch.

    Just so you know, and for the avoidance of doubt, please do not attempt to re-instate your sig-line (unless you want an instant ban, that is).
