    Are the biggest lies in history. I am sure this was how the German propaganda machine worked as well, they claimed the opposit of the truth. It worked, the German people were behind Hitler, the US population was behind Bush.
    Actually those tactics are found more on MSNBC where they blantantly lie and hope to influence the judicial system so they can get politicians they simply have political disagreements thrown in prison. Like the NAZI's did. Note how they still support and claim Wilson debunked the administrations claims when he has been shown to be a liar, and they want political opponents thrown in jail so they can win power back. Just go and read the history of the Third Reich, the used the same tactics.

    Ya wtf ever.

    The patriot act did however strip the average US citizens of alot of constitution rights. Like the right to peace in your own home. FBI can now barge in without a warrant for example. The patriot is a great loss of rights for the US population.
    Does your country even have Constitutional protections against unlawful searches and seizures? Infact what country are you from? And sneak and peak searches can only be initiated with probable cause. And the Patriot Act didn't create that the RICO Act did.

    The president of the US together is almost a tyrranie and a dictatorship, not in any tradtional sense, but when they get the congres to believe Iraq had WMDs and go to war with them just to find they dont have it, and they dont get impeached. Then you understand that this is true, the US is a tyrranie.
    LMFAO, all 16 intelligence agencies in the U.S. along with the Mossad, MI6, and DGSE to name a few all concluded that Iraq had WMD, they made that clear in U.N. resolution 1441, and furthermore, the Democrats all had access to the same intel as the President.

    War is no excuse to make things worse at home, nor take away constitution rights.
    I turned my back for a second and damn if you wouldn't know it someone stole my Constitutional rights. What a load of bull**** I have not had one of my rights violated and if I did I would file suit in the Federal Courts for civil rights violations. From Lincoln to FDR during times of great national distress and danger the President has been afforded greater constitutional powers to protect the lives of the citizenry against all enemies both foreign and domestic, I'll remind you that the greatest civil liberty is the natural right to life, that's probably why it's listed first in the DoI.

    Congress was fooled after massive propaganda by the US top government(cebinet & pres).
    Oh ya what propaganda would that be? Ever heard of the NIE?

    In fox news no one has disagreements, everyone is right-wing conservatives. If they have a guest that disagree with their standpoint he is quick off the air.
    The only so called different opinion on fox is colmes in hannibal and colmes, which is just a scripted duck waiting for slaughter. He probably voted Bush in the last election, he is simply a manufactured democrat to ridicule for all the republicans in fox news.

    Fox broadcasting is more fair and balanced, I like fox entertainment, but thjeir newschannels is completely out of this world, a parody, a joke. Isnt it amazing how George Bush won the 2004 election by making constant fun of John Kerrys hair?

    Yes, if you have an intruder in the house that you cannot defend against with other means you have the right to kill him. Law enfocement need a court order to enter your house.

    1441 didnt allow military action, this is why the UN is now so careful with allowing any resolutions on Iran for example.

    You are really willing to give up all the essential freedoms and rights of the constitution because of 3000 people? Those 3000 people were killed as a consequence of planning and action of maybe a 100 people. You let the terrorist win by introducing the patriot act. The US is becoming even more of a police state, they can barge into any home and arrest people as long as they want with no rights while they surveilance the rest by camera or their communication.. Is that REALLY worth it just because of 100 people?

    By trying to constantly bring up other news networks to avoid the issue it's obvious you really don't have a dog here.

    In their reporting they give both sides and let you decide.Editorial they have supported the removal of Saddam, as did all the Demcorats and the rest of the media at the time, and have also been highly critical of some aspects.

    But they STILL give both sides equal airing unlike the other media.
    Murdock didn't say anything about "editorials" and "reporting" he said they've tried to shape opinion on this war. It's obvious that if they were unbiased they'd actually report and let you decide. By trying to shape your opinion on it is clear they have a set agenda on issues and aren't interested in letting you make up your mind about them. See where I'm going here?

    Yet they give both sides of the story and equal billing unlike the other channels.

    Slanting news doesn't sound like giving "equal" billing.

    Which do not give fair and balanced coverage.
    Sigh. See my first report. Quit dodging the issue. We're talking about FOX not MSNBC or CNN.

    By trying to single out FOX your showing you can't maintain your position.

    Editorially they do, all news agencies have such positions. But their hardnews reporting and news shows give both sides equal billing so YOU can make up your own mind.

    We're talking about news and how it is presented. Of course comparing them to the competition blows away your argument so you want to avoid it. Sorry that dog don't hunt.

    Again what country are you from? And sneak and peak searches are more technical than you are portraying them.

    1441 didnt allow military action, this is why the UN is now so careful with allowing any resolutions on Iran for example.
    What does this have to do with the WMD consensus shared by the international community? And BTW just what do you think "serious consequences," mean? Perhaps another worthless resolution?

    You are really willing to give up all the essential freedoms and rights of the constitution because of 3000 people?
    I haven't given up any rights, our constitution outlaws unreasonable searches and siezures, I hardly think that tapping the phones of those in contact with AQ members overseas would be considered unreasonable.

    Those 3000 people were killed as a consequence of planning and action of maybe a 100 people.
    There are 1.5 billion muslims around the world if only 10% (a conservative estimate) are radicalized that is an enemy consisting of 150 million. Now it only takes one of those to get their hands on a nuclear or biological weapons to wipe out hundreds of thousands if not millions of my fellow citizens, and if my government doesn't do everything in their power to protect us from such criminals, who (make no mistake about it) would wipe out every last American given the chance, then we need new government put in their place.

    You let the terrorist win by introducing the patriot act.
    No we let the terrorists win by nuking a U.S city, killing millions of Americans, attacking and attacking without response or repercussion, and by not defending ourselves. Your type of naive philosophy was tried under the Clinton administration who could have prevented 9-11 if not for insane policies like the Clinton-Gorelick wall which prevented the CIA and Operation able Danger from giving the FBI the name of AQ agent and ringleader of the Planes Operation Mohammad Atta. In order to engage this enemy we need a pro-active intelligence apparatus.

    The US is becoming even more of a police state, they can barge into any home and arrest people as long as they want with no rights while they surveilance the rest by camera or their communication..
    That's a load of paranoid delusional bull****. U.S. citizens still retain Habeas Corpus rights and the right to trial in civilian court, and strict guidelines are placed on surveilance and sneak and peak searches.

    Is that REALLY worth it just because of 100 people?
    You think AQ and radical Islam is limited to 100 people? It must be nice to live in your fantasy world.

    How have I not maintained my position? Is the thread topic on CNN, MSNBC or FOX? Last time I checked it was "Is FOX News Biased" not "Is FOX news more or less biased then X". I was not asking you to compare FOX news to other networks. I was asking you to tell me whether or not FOX news was biased. Which some have either refused to answer by giving by giving the " YEAH BUT!" response a.k.a. dodging or by ignoring the question and rambling on about other networks. Much like yourself.

    Editorially they do, all news agencies have such positions. But their hardnews reporting and news shows give both sides equal billing so YOU can make up your own mind.
    Again. Rupert Murdock didn't say that they try to change opinion through editorials or through reporting. He said they try to shape opinion. Whatever tool they're using is irrelevant if they claim to be unbiased. If they were unbiased they wouldn't be trying to shape your opinion in any form or manner.

    We're talking about news and how it is presented. Of course comparing them to the competition blows away your argument so you want to avoid it. Sorry that dog don't hunt.
    How exatcly does it blow away my argument? You've dodged the question by comparing them to other networks which have nothing to do with the thread topic. It's like the child who does something wrong and then when you ask him about it he wont give you a straight answer. So again I ask :

    Is FOX NEWS biased? Yes or No?

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    It's really, truly, and utterly amazing when the debate becomes a back-and-forth about what the debate was even about. All one has to do is read the question.

    It's absolutely no coincidence that the folks whom have a hard time interpreting simple instructions, or whom refuse to follow guidelines, are the same folks that consider Fox to be news, or to be less biased than other networks.
