    It would be fine with me if he was simply a biased pundit. He's more than that; he's a sorry excuse for someone who claims to be a newsman/journalist, he blatantly lies, as evidenced above. So not only is he biased, he has purposely engaged in unethical journalistic practices.

    Well, I can't disagree because I wouldnt be able to defend my stance is.
    I guess I just sorta like him because i NEVER took him seriously so him sucking at being objective never bothered me.

    I think he is good at his job (entertainment/controversy) and when he is away from fox, at times, he is honest about being basically a hack and for entertainment.

    but again youll never here me say he is fair and balanced.

    Eh, my own bias is kicking in a bit. Sean Hannity and I share numerous social beliefs. I don't think they're insane, but that they're as biased as everyone else. The main problem I have, tbh, is claiming to be fair/balanced/unbiased.

    If we want to talk about dimwits and numbnuts let's talk about Maddow, Schultz, and that arrogant d-bag from The Young Turks.

    Feel free to create an MSNBC thread if you like. I don't watch them either. Cable news is essentially the armpit of American journalism.

    Matter of opinion, but that doesn't excuse Bill's unprofessional bull****, first trying to tell Glick that he knew more about his father than Glick did, then the "why do you hate America", and then going the "cut off his mic" route.

    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.
    O'Reilly is a "conservative" and has a bias on his show, but when it comes to interviews I think he's pretty fair. TBH I think O'Reilly tries to manipulate people into thinking he's really objective and moderate. I wouldn't call Fox News fair and balanced. Their panels are hardly balanced (usually 3 conservatives and 1 liberal who isn't smart enough to logically defend his position). However, some of their interviewers are pretty fair and election reportings seem to be fair and without bias. I personally get my information from websites that I view to be less biased and more objective (like realclearpolitics and ontheissues).

    Tired of elections being between the lesser of two evils.

    again not even saying I disagree but in the few and far moments they might actually be fair and balanced it does nothing to their overall appearance. Its like a secret serial killer taking his little niece to the playground and buying her a birthday cake. Yep thats sweet and nice, but he still has 8 people chopped and buried in his basement so he is still a quack! lol
