    Watch Hannity and Colmes and you will have the proof. Watch it with an objective, open and neutral mind, not a breainwashed and biased mind.

    I dont really have a link, lets ask Volker, he can confirm this.

    Around the world elsewhere its legal, but I guess no one would like to call their child Adolf anyways. The kids would suffer forever.

    I did however read an article about how people with the name Adolf changed their names after the second world war. This must have been the most massive abandonment of a name ever.

    Who would call their child Adolf anyways?

    "little Adolf, can you please clean after youself"
    "Wie geht es Adolf?"
    Any use of the name brings Hitler into association.


    Anyways, lets Volker be the judge. I am pretty sure it was made illegal in Germany.

    It's all relative.


    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.
    Just like a newspaper and any other news agency except when they report hard news they give equal footing to both sides.

    Is FOX NEWS biased? Yes or No?
    In their reporting? No. Do they have editorial opinions? Yes.

    That's not proof. Prove that Colomes, who has his own talk show outside of H&C let's himself be used in this matter, or that Bob Beckel who subs for him often also let's himself be use like this.

    I stopped watching it, snapped out of its brainwashing process and got some perepective on it. After that you will know that foxnews is pure propaganda, one sided biased and that every person working as anchors in fox news is from the extreme right, who agree on everything.

    Whats her name, nancy something, she is the most ridiculous person on foxnews.

    thanks for answering one of my questions! you just confirmed that the guests on that show that day were 78% Righty and 22% Leftish. (never mind that in 1988 Kondracke wrote an essay in the New Republic where he said that he despised the Democratic Party and that the reason he hasn't switched to the Republican Party is because he felt they had deserted their Conservative past). another question for you Pat, which you, of course, are at liberty to dodge. do you think that Fox has ever had a panel that leaned that much to the left?

    thanks for clarifying. how many non-conservative hosts do you think they have? also, when you answer, I'd like to see some proof.

    c'mon Pat. I know what you said. I helped you to learn when they had said it, and to see them use it. of course you don't think it's bias. you've made that clear.

    please let me know if you don't think any of the following are examples of bias. is so, please explain why, with proof.


    "Who would be the most likely to cheat at cards-- Bill Clinton or Al Gore?"--Fox News Channel/Opinion Dynamics poll (May 2000)

    On January 26, 2007, News Corp. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch admitted to using the Fox News parent company as a propaganda tool for the Iraq War. "Asked if his News Corp. managed to shape the agenda on the war in Iraq, Murdoch said: 'No, I don't think so. We tried. [...] We basically supported the Bush policy in the Middle East...but we have been very critical of his execution.'"

    A news article on the Fox News website during October 2004 by Carl Cameron, chief political correspondent of Fox News, contained three fabricated quotes attributed to Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. The quotes included: "Women should like me! I do manicures," "Didn't my nails and cuticles look great?" and "I'm metrosexual [Bush's] a cowboy." Fox News retracted the story and apologized, citing a "jest" that became published through "fatigue and bad judgement, not malice."

    FOXNews.com - 'Pro-War' Movement Springs Into Action - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

    On March 23, 2003 the FOX News channel headline banners were rolling: "Huge chemical weapons factory found in Iraq... Reports: 30 Iraqis surrender at chem weapons plant... coal. troops holding Iraqi in charge of chem. weapons." On the next day the Dow Jones Newswires reported that U.S. officials had admitted that morning that the site contained no chemicals at all and had been abandoned long before the Iraq War.

    Carl Cameron, chief political correspondent of Fox News was allowed to cover the Bush Campaign in 2000 despite the fact his wife was campaigning for Bush.

    Fox's Slanted Sources

    "Even we at Fox News manage to get some lefties on the air occasionally, and often let them finish their sentences before we club them to death and feed the scraps to Karl Rove and Bill O'Reilly. And those who hate us can take solace in the fact that they aren't subsidizing Bill's bombast; we payers of the BBC license fee don't enjoy that peace of mind. Fox News is, after all, a private channel and our presenters are quite open about where they stand on particular stories. That's our appeal. People watch us because they know what they are getting." - Scott Norvell, London bureau chief for Fox News, 5/20/2005

    "The roots of Fox News Channel's day-to-day on-air bias are actual and direct. They come in the form of an executive memo distributed electronically each morning, addressing what stories will be covered and, often, suggesting how they should be covered. To the newsroom personnel responsible for the channel's daytime programming, The Memo is the bible. If, on any given day, you notice that the Fox anchors seem to be trying to drive a particular point home, you can bet The Memo is behind it. The Memo was born with the Bush administration, early in 2001, and, intentionally or not, has ensured that the administration's point of view consistently comes across on FNC. This year, of course, the war in Iraq became a constant subject of The Memo. But along with the obvious - information on who is where and what they'll be covering - there have been subtle hints as to the tone of the anchors' copy. For instance, from the March 20th memo: "There is something utterly incomprehensible about Kofi Annan's remarks in which he allows that his thoughts are 'with the Iraqi people'. One could ask where those thoughts were during the 23 years Saddam Hussein was brutalizing those same Iraqis. Food for thought." Can there be any doubt that the memo was offering not only "food for thought", but a direction for the FNC writers and anchors to go? Especially after describing the U.N. Secretary General's remarks as "utterly incomprehensible"? The sad truth is, such subtlety is often all it takes to send Fox's newsroom personnel into action - or inaction, as the case may be. One day this past spring, just after the U.S. invaded Iraq, The Memo warned us that anti-war protesters would be 'whining' about U.S. bombs killing Iraqi civilians, and suggested they could tell that to the families of American soldiers dying there. Editing copy that morning, I was not surprised when an eager young producer killed a correspondent's report on the day's fighting - simply because it included a brief shot of children in an Iraqi hospital. These are not isolated incidents at Fox News Channel, where virtually no one of authority in the newsroom makes a move unmeasured against management's politics, actual or perceived. At the Fair and Balanced network, everyone knows management's point of view, and, in case they're not sure how to get it on air, The Memo is there to remind them." - Charlie Reina, former Fox News producer

    *Sigh* No it's not. The subject is FOX. Not MSNBC or CNN.

    I've already shown you that even FOX News's Owner admits they've tried to change opinion. It doesn't matter what medium/tool they use to change this opinion. Matter of fact he doesn't even specify. By having an agenda on issues it is obvious that they're not "Fair and Balanced" and dont just "Report" and let you "Decide". Do I really have to spell it out?

    In their reporting? No. Do they have editorial opinions? Yes.
    Snips of a Memo from John Moody.

    [Th]e president is doing something that few of his predecessors dared undertake: [pu]tting the US case for mideast peace to an Arab summit. It's a distinctly [sk]eptical crowd that Bush faces. His political courage and tactical cunning ar[e] [wo]rth noting in our reportingthrough the day
    Again any news network who claims to be unbiased would not resort to this would it now? Don't worry my quotes don't come from revisionist history sites

    Media Matters - O'Reilly challenged Rather to "put up or shut up" for claiming that Fox News echoes White House
