What do you people out there think of Fox news. I watched it the other day and found it to be absolute Cr@#. I was shocked to hear that it is the most watched news in USA. Does anyone agree with me?

I just love how kids from the other side of the planet tell us in the U.S. how we should think. It is even worse when it is the same three things over and over ad nauseam.

Oh, and how about tell use why it is so "terrible". Don't be like Kerry and spout out statements without giving any details or reasons.

I found that it bashed the French to much especially on the O'Riley factor not giving all the right facts and in some cases making up stories like the fact they said a Chemical bomb factory was found in Iraq with weapons of mass destruction. No factory was found. Can you explain how that is good reporting.

It's not my favorite although I don't really think it's as bad as many say it is. While it does offer a lot of conservative-oriented programming, at least in some of it, such as in Hannity and Colmes, there is a liberal voice (ie Alan Colmes). I think it gets to become a little cheesy..they always have some self-promoting bit going on or some flashy intro for everything. I usually go for MSNBC or maybe CNN, at least they're a bit more to the point and deliver the news in a more professional manner.

Well Greatansett,

What FOX presents are facts, just as every other news network on the planet. There are only 3 major wire services, and those "untruths" are exactly what was presented to every other news network. Whether or not they present it is their integrity, not my problem.

Well, I don't like Fox's over-the-top energy and POW-POW-POW graphics. But they do a great service simply by NOT throwing a liberal slant on everything, a la CNN or ABC.

No wonder it's our leading news source.

CNN's "approach" is conservative, but their political sway is definitely liberal. I wish Fox would cut the high-tech stuff and say everything softly.

Come on Alpha 1, be mature. Just because Fox News doesn't throw an enormous liberal slant on everything, doesn't mean they don't present facts.

I know you hate them, but saying that they, as a news source, don't present facts is ridiculous. They have a different slant than CNN, but they present the same facts.

Prove me wrong, please.

Come on, what are you saying? First you say Fox doesn't present facts, now you say they are the most biased. Which one is it?

Fox is biased, but just the opposite way from stations like CNN. Why do you have to have a double standard here, if CNN is biased towards the liberals, you are fine with that, but you hate FOX because they're biased for conservatives.

Get over yourself, don't complain just because not every single media source is biased for liberals. Not everyone is a liberal, hate to tell ya.

Cable news? *barf* Please tell me that isn't the most interesting way that you guys can think of to spend your time.

I don't watch FNC. I don't watch CNN. I don't watch MSNBC. I don't watch network news. I don't read newspapers. I don't care. If the world is going to hell, it's going to have to do it without me...

In other words, the eternal prognostications (especially the ones based on incomplete information--which is to say most) so characteristic of news sources are more than I can stomach. I have enough worry in my life as it is.

Are you biased against good grammar skills? By the way, you said that you just said you watched the channel, then how the hell do you know if FOX showed the war demonstrations or not (which they did) .

FOXNews presents the news with a centrist-right slant, there is nothing extreme about the channel. It mainly has conservative hosts while CNN, PMSNBC, and the major networks have mainly liberal hosts. The reason why liberals hate FOX News Channel is so hated by liberals is because it gives a different view on things--no longer does television news just have to be presented by liberal point-of-view.

As for the reason for its success? Statistics show that conservatives watch far more news programs than their liberal counterparts. When FOX News became more widely availible all the conservatives switched to a channel that represented their views--thus sucking the conservative audience away from CNN and PMSNBC.

And yes, FOX News is the most successful news network. Nary a day goes by when four of the top rated shows aren't from FOX News.

I tried to post a topic concerning the fact that Fox was at one time selling a George W. Bush action figure on foxnews.com, however it was apparently deleted. It is terrible of them to masquerade as "Fair and Balanced" even when Mr. Nospin O'Reilly said himself that they slant "a little" to the right.

I've learned to take everything I see on the Fox News channel with a grain of salt. They're sort of the cheerleaders of the ultra-right.

But I have to admit I like to watch it sometimes. There's always lots of screaming, name-calling, and blaring rock and roll music. It's a real spectacle! It kind of draws you in. Americans, for the most part, have a very short attention span. I think that's why Fox News is so popular here. There's lots of drama to keep it interesting.

Oh yeah, and everyone's very, very angry. I always wonder how they are able to find guests brave enough to appear on a Fox News talk show. Whether you agree with what they're attempting to say or not, its always fun to watch enraged "news anchors" and talk show hosts cut them off midsentence and scream insults at them while they sit frozen and doe-eyed, unable to speak. Classic.
