    Seems like a fair option.....
    well thats what the thread title says but if you read the thread people on the left and right ate making fun of fox's false slogan and other networks also.

    But I do agree it has been done, the obvious tends to get repeated.

    Well I don't watch fox news. But if it's it Thr same league as tripe filled, feces stained paper otherwise known as The Daily Telegraph (also owned by Murdoch)

    For those of you who've never had the pleasure of that bonehead paper. Take the WSJ, a fairly respectable and sensible paper. Get rid of it's business orientation, most of its balance and imagine it was written by a three year old trying to write a story in as little lines as remotely possible. Oh and don't let facts get in the way of a good story, just don't put them in.
    /rant over.

    I know that and my apologies if you thought I implied that

    my point is, if we are lookin at a fair and balanced scale 1-10, theres no real point of using the phrase fair and balanced if one is a -2 and the other is a -3 LOL

    To me its like saying this rapist and murder isnt quite as mad ass this rapist murder. they both suck and are the worse of the worse.

    I like O'Rielly a good bit actually, dont really have an opinion on Greta but again they are only better than the worse on FOX. If we are starting in the middle O'Rielly is clearly right its not even a question. Not as crazy extreme as Beck of course but clearly right.

    Tbh, I don't worry about biases much.

    People don't watch news shows, read newspapers to challenge their worldview and political orientation. They read it to confirm thier own bias. If something is making claims that challenge your own beliefs people will change the chanel. For instance if Fox News ran a story showing that the NHS was bettter than healthcare 'American Style' the maority of you would tune out. Therefore we should acknowledge that all people and all media agencies have some sort of bias and get over it.

    Yep

    Like I just said O'rielly seems "fair" because of who he is being compared to. He isnt as nutty as Beck or Rush so it paints him more fair but if we are starting in the middle he clearly is not.

    They have their own bias, they're just more dignified about it.
