    No, let's file it under "personal attack; reported".

    CNN had ratings. They had HUGE ratings once upon a time for that climate. They pissed away their ratings and chased their viewers to Fox once they decided to stop being a news channel and start waving the donkey flag. When Clinton's castaways started turning up at every corner and the true newspeople starting getting run off the set, their integrity vanished along with their ratings.

    So let me see if I get this 100% straight; the people defending Fox here (the conservatives here) believe that Fox news has no conservative bias whatsoever?

    That's what they are saying, yes.

    It's right up there with the Emperor having no clothing, in my estimation.

    Decided that Fox will NOT get the coveted Helen Thomas Seat, but will instead give that seat to AP. Fox will take AP's old seat which also was in the front row. Given the list of members on the WHCA - there was no way in hell Fox was going to get Thomas' old seat. I'm fairly sure they are hating themselves for having to concede to put Fox in the front row at all.
    Now all we need is Orly Titts occupying the seat.

    Re: Fox News Receives Front-Row Seat in White House Briefing Room

    Let's put it this way:

    The networks the lefties call "news" channels tried to perpuate the lie that a Fox News broadcast led to the compelled resignation of that Sherrod woman.

    Screamin' Dean told FOXNEWS just that. He was immediately corrected by Mike Wallace, who said that his program was going to stick with the facts and Dean was not going to be allowed to continue with that lie on Fox.

    So Dean repeated his lie on another network. Which tolerated it.

    So Fox reported the NEWS, which was that Fox had not aired one word about Sherrod before the Messiah panicked and forced her to resign before Beck went on the air.

    The above actions, Fox, the news channel; Dean, the typical Democrat mouthpiece; and the propaganda channels, are typical for each player, and precisely why the news channel has the huge lead in the ratings. People watch news programs to learn the truth, not hear propaganda.

    I doubt if many will deny that Fox has a conservative bias.

    So what?

    Of the other 999 TV news networks out there, 999 of them have an extreme left wing bias.

    Besides which,......the conservative bias on Fox results in:

    Persistence in exposing corruption in the White House and the Democrat Congress. I figure that since no other network is doing this, we should pay attention to the only one attempting the task. There is, however, over 200 Democrats elected to office in Washington, and only 24 hours in a day. It would be nice of the Propaganda Networks got their heads out of Obama's ass and started remember how real reporting is done.

    Name the other network that persisted in covering the race-based dismissal of guilty judgements for those club-wielding voter intimitadors? Hmmmmm?

    What are the real stories of the day, now?

    The destruction of America by it's own government, the surrender of the United States government to Mexico, and the refusal of the states to play along, the coming disaster of massive unprecendented tax increases allowed by this congress and this president, and the failure of this president to do anything effective about the recession the government caused by meddling in the free market in the first place.

    The other networks covering this?

    No.

    People who watch other networks know who "Snooki" is. I suspect most peole watching Fox are like me, and had to do a search to discover who Snooki was, and then wonder why anyone would give a crap about what that broad thought or felt. The opinions of people who knew what a Snooki was without searcing for it aren't really important to people interested in real news.

    Here is the difference between the "Propaganda Channels" and Fox News though; they aren't owned by Charles Kane er..um Rupert Murdoch, a self proclaimed conservative, and a bunch of people that have worked for previous Republican administrations.

    A good time to be practical in the matter of media coverage. The Democratic Party's boycott of Fox News was utterly foolish and detrimental to their public relations.
