    In other words, it is your opinion that Hannity and Colmes is "scripted" and you have no proof.

    I have already said that more of their hosts are conservative.

    As for your question at the end, I don't know.

    I am still waiting for the all conservative panel you spoke of earlier.

    I'd like to see some proof, please.
    Watch Fox. I don't know where to find this information.

    thanks for clarifying. how many non-conservative hosts do you think they have? also, when you answer, I'd like to see some proof.
    I don't know the political leanings of every host.

    Please prove it.
    Watch Fox. I don't know where to find this information.

    I want to see some proof of this.
    Watch Fox. I don't know where to find this information.

    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.
    I know what I said.

    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)


    LOL! This is a good question. This is most likely an attempt at humor.

    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.'"
    They supported Bush just as the Democrats did. Did you see the part in bold?

    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."
    This was retracted and apologized for.

    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.
    At the time Fox reported this, it was believed to be true. Prove that they knew it was wrong and reported it anyway.

    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.
    And...

    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
    This is an opinion. Not proof of bias.

    "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
    Like I said, some opinions on the facts lean conservative. But the facts are not slanted.

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    conserv.pat15, did you see the part where Murdoch said, "We tried [to shape the agenda on the war in Iraq]?"

    maybe you have a different idea of what bias is, than the rest of us do. this can be the only explanation for your steadfastness.

    After watching fox for years, then stopping to watch it and getting perspective on things, its my strong opinion that Hannity and Colmes is not what it says it is, which is suppose to be a fair and balanced program with a republican and a democrat. Its clearly not that. If it is the case the Colmes actually is a democrat then he is the democrat version of Arnold Schwarzenegger republican. In the end he is just a toy of ultra right wing ultra conservative Hannity who runs the show. He is clearly loosing confidence working in fox news as half a democrat while the rest, hundreds of people are conservative republicans. It might just be that he was democrat and that his work environment in the ultra neo-con channel fox news just broke him down.

    You conservative guys on this forum surely often "win" threads against me and other centrist liberals in this forum with all kind of unfair methods, especially claiming something is fact when its no, or answering unrelated stuff to my questions. You also tend to mix issues that are not really related to win an argument, while everything in your opinion that conservatives says is facts and that liberals says is lies. You dont prove your opinions either, but you always demand liberals to prove 100% of their claims. If someone catch you guys in a lie, you will automatically ignore it, or start talking about something else, often the person that caught you in the lie and how stupid he is or that he is arab or something completely non-factual. I am seriously worried about the state of the world, and single individuals, especially on this forum if you represent views in the US in any way close to correct. I am seriously worried about people in the US if this forum represent the average opinions of people in the US.

    Discussing with many people on this forum is like trying to tell a person with multiple personality disorders that he is mentally ill, he will not listen to you, he will tell you that you are the one who is ill, or he will simply manipulate his way out of the situation by saying anything, related or unrelated to the issue at hand, usually at this time you will have forgotten what it was all about, but a person with multiple different personality disorder will never admit he is sick. Nor will a person who is brainwashed admit he is brainwashed, or a person belonging to an insane cult admit he belongs to an insane cult.

    Debating with you guys are simply getting difficult, because you can only see the case from one side, you can not put yourself on the other side and see things objectively and balanced, you will never listen or try to understand someone with a different standpoint, you will never learn from someone who is different than yourself, so you remain inside your bubbles forever. This is why I need to find another forum.

    Totally with you on this. I don't think it's just this forum though. It's like everyone is in a daze. Nobody thinks for themselves anymore. If you go against the norm, you make people uncomfortable. Personal responsibility is gone. Everyone acts as though they're watching the world spiral out of control, when really they're participants.
    Nor will a person who is brainwashed admit he is brainwashed, or a person belonging to an insane cult admit he belongs to an insane cult.
    There's no way to tell someone they are brainwashed without insulting them. The facts don't even matter anymore. How much clearer can it be that Murdoch admitted they support Bush policies and 'tried' to shape opinion of the war. That is not fair and balanced - whether they were critical or not. It's not debateable. Add in the memo's that have been made public, and you're still a nut...
    This is why I need to find another forum.
    I hope you don't go. The terrorists will have won.

    Peace

    Once again giving doubt to your claim to have ever watched. There is no basis for the claim that every news achor is from the extreme AT ALL. And since their reporting IS balanced and gives both sides even if they were it obviuosly doesn't matter. The truth is the left is doing everything it can to NOT have balanced news because once people see both sides they tend to swerve right not left.

    Whats her name, nancy something, she is the most ridiculous person on foxnews.
    I think you are talking about Nancy Grace she is on CNN not Fox, showing again you don't watch Fox News.
