    I have never seen or heard Fox News call Obama "Barack Hussein Obama." What is wrong with calling terrorist attacks in Israel "homicide bombings" or calling Hugo Chavez "Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez" (Though I don't remember Fox News calling him a dictator).

    On CNN and MSNBC, they call President Bush "Mr. Bush."

    While it's true that many news sources have biases, most of them don't intentionally distort the news to fit those biases. You don't ever see the Wall Street Journal trying to smear Democrats, or the New York Times trying to smear Republicans. CNN and MSNBC almost always include a conservative perspective in their news analysis...FOX only has one liberal, and he's just a foil for Sean Hannity.
    The New York Times definately shows more bias than Fox News. Also, CNN and MSNBC don't always show the conservative side of the story and often phrase stories with a liberal bias through their commentators (Like Wolf Blitzer, for example, especially when they talk with Michael Ware (I think that's his name)).

    With that said, FOX is still much more accurate than some of the crap you can read online.
    I agree.

    I dont know if they called him that, but if they did it would be wrong, because he was democratically elected. Calling him a dictator because of the new powers he got through a parliament vote is almost the same as calling Bush a dictator because of the powers he have over the US cabinet, and how much power the president and the cabinet have together. The vote of parliament in venezuela could be compared to the "patriot act" in the usa.

    Uhm, of course not. You can be right wing or centrist and still be liberal.
    Arnold Schwartzenegger is a perfect example of this.

    FOX is probably the most balanced of all the news networks.......It has many pundits from both side of the political spectrum......

    This is more or less common knowledge.
    But I don't know, because i don't listen to it.

    It's weird that Fox evolved that way, because when it first came out (when I was a kid, probably before you were born) it was considered to be an "alternative" to the 3 big networks, and was considered rather edgy and outre, with it's prime time line-up of things like "Married With Children" and "The Simpsons".
    I know it's hard to imagine- these programs seem so tame now- but things like that were not shown on network television before Fox came along, and a lot of parents objected to their children watching it. For lack of a better description, I'll call it "the glamorization of dysfunctional families". That's what Fox specialized in. The other networks were still specializing in "Family Ties" and "Growing Pains" and other un-funny shows that idealized nuclear families at the time.
    Fox's primetime line-up seemed irresistibly funny and au currant compared to these lame-arse shows.

    But, that's all ancient history now.
    And today, Fox has a reputation as the "conservative"- and right-aligned- network.

    Please, please, please, put your money where your mouth is! Debate me on this. I've already set it up. You can stand in for Cold Dirt. I can't understand how or why rightwingers will make statements like this, but then dodge a full-out one-on-one debate about it. Well, wait, ... on second thought, I think I can understand it.

    You didn't give any examples. I guarantee you for every example you can post, I can post something from the same network of stories phrased with a conservative bias.
