    Senator Rockefeller (D) Wants FCC To Stop FOX News

    Joe Biden, FOX, MSNBC, and the Impulse to Censorship

    Liberal Groups Lobby FCC To Police Talk Radio, Cable News

    Eox News is a tough nut to crack. They don't seem to have ever lied about anything or failed to retract anything they were wrong about.

    I suppose we'll discover that when Liberals come out in defense of Fox News and their right to free speech. So far the support seems to be thin.

    The day conservatives aren't attacking liberals is the day that conservatism or liberalism dies.

    *Edit to add:

    And the fact that you associate Fox News with conservatism is also sad. Why would you want to associate with such an unethical entity?

    *Edited to add again:

    Also, your link says "law professor", not liberal. Someone thinks the obvious, that Fox News is misleading, useless garbage that airs programs that are labeled as "news" is misleading and that makes him liberal? My guess is he has a brain... if that makes him liberal we'll take him.
    The difference is that the groups you mentioned were receiving public money. If they are not taxpayer subsidized no one really cares.

    But it is a war on free speech and not a war of ideas and opinions.

    That was made clear in their statement.

    "Media Matters, Brock said, is assembling opposition research files not only on Fox’s top executives but on a series of midlevel officials. It has hired an activist who has led a successful campaign to press advertisers to avoid Glenn Beck’s show. The group is assembling a legal team to help people who have clashed with Fox to file lawsuits for defamation, invasion of privacy or other causes. And it has hired two experienced reporters, Joe Strupp and Alexander Zaitchik, to dig into Fox’s operation to help assemble a book on the network, due out in 2012 from Vintage/Anchor. (In the interest of full disclosure, Media Matters last month also issued a report criticizing “Fox and Friends” co-host Steve Doocy’s criticism of this reporter’s blog.)

    This is quite clearly a vendetta and designed to tie up Fox News and their staff in the courts. The Left, as their history indicates, has always supported censorship and the restriction of ideas and have justified it through a variety of explanations and rationalizations. This is just another sad example.

    Every clear thinking American should not let this stand. Once one set of opinions becomes verboten, yours will probably be next.

    Which part of Fox News are you referring to?

    One of their commentators or newscasters?

    Attack on freedom of speech? Well sadly in the US "freedom of speech" also means freedom of responsibility for spreading lies and miss-information. It use to be that media out-lets that were considered serious, were called on their lax reporting. Now days, Fox News gets away with pretty much anything.. may it be the anti-education attacks their anchors make or the out right crazy conspiracy crap they pull. Nancy Grace not believing Fox News own weather man that the radiation coming from Japan was minimal on the west coast of the US.... really takes the top spot for me at the moment.. what an idiot of a woman. But sadly it is not the only example of their anchors with college degrees playing people with no high school education.

    Sorry but Fox News dug this hole they are in, and the fact that Media Matters has the balls to call them (and other media outlets too) on their miss-information, lies and propaganda should be applauded rather than scowled on. Someone has to keep the media in check, especially the serial liars and propaganda stations.

    Nancy Grace is on HLN not Fox. Are you another one who bashes Fox without even watching it? Do you get all your info from Media Matters and Huffpo? They are just 2 orgs. who are being paid by George Soros to try and take FOX down.
    Aren't you the least bit curious about what all the fuss is? Try watching and form your own opinion instead of taking someone elses word for it.

    He really doesn't have a clue, Barb.

    Earlier on another thread he was equally critical of Fox News but when asked for specific name he couldn't respond. All he he knows is that Fox News is the enemy and must be silenced.

    He trusts the BBC.
