    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.
    I thought it was funny as hell the "what do these terrorists have in common," bit was ****ing hilarious.

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    Most channels are biased. I find most 24 hour news channels to be extreming boring and repetitive and rarely watch them. I usually watch world news or local news. I have watched FOX a couple times (mostly when it's on at my grandparents house) and whatever. It wasn't terribly right-winged but it's not exactly liberal media going on there. It floats certain people's boats and if it's good for them, then cool. My grandparents love Bill O'Reilly and while I don't share that setiment, I am glad there is someone out there they can relate too.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    Funny you should mention that...I watched Keith Olberman for the first time in months last night...and you are right...he probably is a touch more smug than Hannity. It's a toss up which one I dislike more.

    I thought it was funny as hell the "what do these terrorists have in common," bit was ****ing hilarious.
    Some parts of it were funny. Some parts very much needed the laugh track. Either way, the show has a clear agenda and is not appropriate for a channel trying to maintain a modicum of neutrality.

    Oh come on "good night and good luck," who does he think he is Edward R. Murrow? Can't breathe to much smug.

Also, it is telling that of the two pundits, the conservative one has his own show.
    Sean Hannity is an excellent debater in my opinion.

    I grant you that...but he is a far cry from being an excellent journalist.

    But is Chavez a dictator? Bringing up Hitler doesn't answer this question. Has Chavez (not Hitler) outlawed opposition parties? Will there be no more elections in Venezuela? Is there a free press there? Will the recent bill giving power to Chavez end? Are there limits to the powers granted in the bill? Was the bill passed by an elected assembly? Was former President Perez (not Hitler) also called a dictator when he was given similar (temporary powers)?

    The best you could say (if you/Fox were interested in being accurate) is that Chavez is kinda sorta like a dictator that has checks on his power and is limited in many ways.

    The truth is that he is extremely popular.

    And you can repeat the same stuff all day long over and over believing that it somehow refutes what went on before. Two media entities can be reasonably compared. and that, btw will take a little bit of effort on your part -- will require you to not parrot something you've heard before. Give it a try, TOT. Look at the percentage of news stories versus opinion pieces on a single day. (Niftydrifty vs Cold Dirt: FNC exemplifies poor journalism, much more biased than NYT)

    I could take him. I actually have a friend whom appeared on Hannity and Colmes once. Hannity's primary tactic was not to refute him, but to interrupt him. He's not a good debator.

    I voted yes. If you did a study into how many times the word liberal and/or left was used and then followed by a negative statement then the results would be fairly conclusive.

    Every media outlet has a bias.Most of the media leans to the left.I do not watch enough of Fox news to actually know if they lean to the right or even how far they lean to the right.Considering the smack libs talk about Fox,fox must either be unbiased or they try to present a pro-American point of view.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    William Jefferson Clinton, Hillary Rodham Clinton, etc etc, is it not his middle name? Are facts right wing slanted these days?

    Ya compare those quotes to some you would find on MSNBC.

    So was Hitler. So was Napolean. So was your mama. The point is that there's a topic. And then there's a tendency amongst intellectual dishonest (or lazy) people to bring up something else entirely, which they believe makes some kind of "point."
    Actually you're the one who brought up something else entirely, I said Chavez was a dictator, you said he was elected, as if that mitigates the fact that he's a ****ing dictator, he rules by decree, he has rewritten the Constitution, he has done away with the free press and he has usurped an unprecedented level of power for the executive.

    But is Chavez a dictator? Bringing up Hitler doesn't answer this question. Has Chavez (not Hitler) outlawed opposition parties?
    No but they are routinely threatened and harrassed.

    Will there be no more elections in Venezuela?
    Yes there will but it doesn't matter because they're fraudulent, they were certified by Jimmy Carter (a renowned supporter of tyranny BTW) whose group that certified the elections happened to recieve a huge cash donation from none other than the government of Venezuela.

    Is there a free press there?
    No.

    Will the recent bill giving power to Chavez end?
    That's what Hitler said about his emergency powers I believe it was called the enabling act, technically speaking the Constitution of the Weimar Republic was not scrapped under Hitler.

    Are there limits to the powers granted in the bill?
    What limits would those be? There's unitary parliament in Venezuela now thanks to Hugo which is controlled by his own party which he weilds a tight grip on.

    Was the bill passed by an elected assembly?
    So was the enabling act, and your point?


    The best you could say (if you/Fox were interested in being accurate) is that Chavez is kinda sorta like a dictator that has checks on his power and is limited in many ways.
    He rules by ****ing decree.

    The truth is that he is extremely popular.

    Ya comparing the amount of news analysis from a 24 hour news network to a newspaper is not "reasonble."
