    Imo, Fox represents the Right. Imo, MSNBC represents the Left. Does MSNBC also fail by any standard? If not, why not? Let me guess, you're going to ignore my question.

    On the evening of November 11, Fox News personalities did not discuss reports from the previous evening that officials at Xe Services, formerly Blackwater Worldwide, had authorized $1 million in bribery payments to Iraqi officials in the aftermath of a fatal shooting involving Blackwater security guards.

    By contrast, Fox News devoted more than one hour on September 10 to discussing videos of conservative activists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles posing as a pimp and a prostitute while asking for assistance from employees at an ACORN office.

    At first, I thought, "What does this have to do with Fox News' biasness?" Then, I remembered Blackwater, Worldwide (formerly Blackwater, USA which is now Xe Services, LLC) received some rather lucrative contracts during the G.W. Bush administration (not to mention that per Wikipedia, Xe's founder and former CEO, Erik Prince, was a former intern during the G. W. Bush administration and a major financial supporter of the Republican Party during G. W. Bush's tenure as President).

    I don't fault Faux News for representing the right. I fault it for claiming to be a news organization, when it is a political operation.

    I didn't say they don't lie, I just said they don't lie and then pretend it's okay because it was meant as an opinion rather than news.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Re: Bashing Fox News was throwing a bone to the liberal base

    It's hard to believe anybody out there accepts CNN, Fox, or MSNBC as a source of credible information. Infotainment runs on the same concepts as the rest of the entertainment industry: they provide what you will watch. If you want unbiased information, just get it from somewhere else and stop watching. Pretty simple.

    I'll go out on a limb and suggest NPR as a good source.

    I'll add that any show with a single "journalist" doing most of the talking is not a good source.

    So, what really happened to Lou Dobbs?

    According to The New York Times: "Months ago the president of CNN/U.S., Jonathan Klein, offered a choice to Lou Dobbs ... [he] could vent his opinions on radio and anchor an objective newscast on television, or he could leave CNN." This after months of intense pressure from those concerned with the content broadcast nightly on Dobbs' CNN program -- leading some in the press to describe the host as a "publicity nightmare" for the network. It is in that environment, that Dobbs announced last night his immediate departure from CNN, his cable news home for nearly 30 years.

    Media Matters released the following statement responding to the late breaking news:

    "For too long, CNN provided Lou Dobbs with its stamp of approval as he pursued a dangerous, one-sided and all too often false conspiracy tinged crusade against immigrants," said Eric Burns, president of Media Matters. "This is a happy day for all those who care about this nation of immigrants and believe in the power of media to elevate the political discourse."

    Since CNN's Lou Dobbs first began spreading false, racially charged conspiracy theories about President Obama's birth certificate in July of this year, Media Matters for America has published 299 research items, video/audio clips, column, and blog posts about his misinformation and hate speech. Below are some of the most significant examples of work Media Matters has done -- this year and in the past -- to combat Dobbs' pernicious influence on the national dialogue.

    CNN isnt exactly free of bias either, and its not quality news, they only show the same stuff, and avoid the political "tough" stories, they dont ask real questions.

    CNN is biased junk compared with BBC, while Fox News is fascist propaganda compared with CNN.
