    "Barack Hussein Obama" site:cnn.com - Google Search

    "Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez" site:cnn.com - Google Search

    (Chavez was elected).
    So was Hitler.

    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.
    lmfao, your proof boils down to the fact that Fox has more news analysis than the NYT's well first of all the NYT's is a newspaper while Fox has to fill 24 hours, and second the NYT's editorials appear on the front page these days.

    By those who watch the for sure bias'd left leaning networks. They can't stand having an actual balanced news network that does not tow the liberal line.

    This is more or less common knowledge.
    It's a common assertion.

    But I don't know, because i don't listen to it.
    Then you aren't in a very good position to discuss 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".
    That is NOT the Fox News Network. Totally different thing and shows you are ignorant of the matter.

    Other than when it first became known I can't recall anywhere on FOX where it has been mentioned. What are you talking about?

    That's right, they absolutely do.

    I'd be happy to take your debate to the private debate. Stand in for Cold Dirt, TOT. Make it count. Spell out your case in full. Make it clear you have no idea what you're talking about, or getting in to.

    Watch the little news feed that scrolls along the bottom of the screen sometime. A lot of the time they mention Obama on that feed, they refer to him as "Barack Hussein Obama."

    LOL! Now Stinger's recollection ability becomes the issue.

    There are several mentions of "Barack Hussein Obama" in Fox News Transcripts on Lexis Nexis.

    The first was in December 2006 on and the last a few days ago, during an interview with Ann Coulter.

    He was only referred to as such AFTER he became a possible candidate for the Dem Presidential nomination.

    Yes we know facts have a right wing bias.

    Again facts have a right wing bias.


    Your penchant for irrelevant relativistic non argument red herrings is rather tiresome.
    Facts are red herrings now?

    My response:

    Hitler is not Chavez.
    He's a national socialist who upon taking office has expanded the powers of the executive exponentially. You said he was elected as if that were to mitigate the fact that he is a dictator, dictators can be elected too, hence the reference to Hitler.

    That's right, they absolutely do.
    And the NYT's is a paper and Fox News is a television station, and again the NYT's editorials appear on the front page these days.

    I'd be happy to take your debate to the private debate. Stand in for Cold Dirt, TOT. Make it count. Spell out your case in full.

    How does opinion make for a right wing bias and how can you compare a television station that has 24 hours to fill with a daily paper? And again the NYT's has a big problem editorializing their supposed news stories.

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    FOX News is my news channel, but I hold no illusions that it isn't biased. It touts itself as the "answer" to the liberal media bias of the other channels. That right there tells me that there is an agenda, even if it is just to discredit the other news networks.

    Further, if you watch the evening line up, the majority of the shows are pundits and not journalists. While I adore Bill O'Reilly after giving him a chance, Sean Hannity is the smuggest SOB on cable. He is clearly biased to the right and poor Alan Colmes is almost a silent side kick. Also, it is telling that of the two pundits, the conservative one has his own show.

    Also, this train wreck called the 1/2 Hour News Hour is clearly indicative of bias. It is supposed to be the conservative answer to the Daily Show...that in and of itself speaks volumes. Why does a non biased news network need a "conservative" answer to a show that comes on a COMEDY CHANNEL? Comedy that takes aim at politics is funny. Politics trying to pass off as comedy is propaganda.

    Is Fox News biased? Of course it is. Is it any more biased than the other news networks? Hardly. The media is a human contact field...as such, it is always going to reflect the bias of the people who are behind it.
