And as you can see, when caught red-handed lying (and stupidly lying, at that), Fox just makes up some more lying B.S. to try and cover the original lie. They simply have no shame (or they must be sociopaths).9/12 newspaper ad controversy
On September 18, 2009, Fox News Channel took out full-page ads in The Washington Post, the New York Post, and The Wall Street Journal with a prominent caption reading, "How did ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN miss this story?" with pictures of a Tea Party movement protest on the United States Capitol lawn. A still picture in the ad was in fact taken from a CNN broadcast covering the event. The veracity of this ad was called into question on the air by then-CNN commentator Rick Sanchez, along with others pointing to various coverage of the event. CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, and CBS Radio News provided various forms of live coverage of the rally in Washington throughout the day on Saturday, including the lead story on CBS Evening News.
Fox News' vice president of marketing, Michael Tammero, responded, "it's fair to say that from the tea party movement . . . to ACORN . . . to the march on 9/12, the networks either ignored the story, marginalized it or misrepresented the significance of it altogether."

A biased thread complaining about bias, hmmm...

Wow, another poorly worded survey conducted by a "political science" professor from an unknown university. That's starting to become a cliche.
If you word a survey poorly enough, you can achieve whatever result you desire. I would say that the revolutions in Syria and Egypt were unsuccessful. The overthrow of Mubarak occurred in February, but was followed by military rule, riots and killing for many months before the military junta stepped down. The poll was conducted from October 17 through October 23, when riots were still occurring, and the military was still in charge. Doesn't sound very successful to me. I read the article from The Slatest, which covered the poll. It was the most biased bit of nonsense I've read since I last tuned in to MSNBC.
1. Your "unknown university" claim, as it infers you would trust a "known university" is both an appeal to authority fallacy, as well as an ad hominem (demeaning the university not because of the quality of its poll, but because of its "unknown" status). Your "political science professor" remark is an ad hominem as well (inferring the professor is biased not because of the content of his work, but because of his title/specialty). Three grade school errors in logic, and that's just your first sentence
2. The survey was conducted by an outside, apparently professional, polling agency. This is your first factual error; a total of four errors so far and again, we have yet to progress beyond your fist sentence. From page 3 of the OP's link:
3. The wording of the survey is clear; as is your attempt to distort (your first lie of omission, by omitting the words in bold in your post to make your point):PublicMind interviews are conducted by Opinion America of Cedar Knolls, NJ, with professionally trained interviewers using a CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing) system. Random selection is achieved by computerized random-digit dialing. This technique gives every person with a land-line phone number (including those with unlisted numbers) an equal chance of being selected. Landline households are supplemented with a separate, randomly selected sample of cell-phone-only-households, interviewed in the same time frame. The total combined sample is mathematically weighted to match known demographics of age, race and gender.
In summary, five glaring errors and a bunch of partisan rhetoric; a very poor effort indeed.K2. To the best of your knowledge, have the opposition groups protesting in Egypt been successful in bringing down the regime there?
K3. How about the opposition groups in Syria? Have they been successful in bringing down the regime there?
I watch and read several news sites a day from different countries I like to see what all sides are saying! Apart fron Hannity which I watch to feel better about myself!
It's very perplexing to note that this required a study.

I'm curious, is there any amount of evidence that would actually show that Fox is trash? Is there anything that Fox could do (obviously other than changing its overall narrative), that would cause its viewers to abandon it?
