    Is FOX news biased?

    Yes, No or I don't know. Very simple. State why for the first too.

    Fox claiming it is Fair & Balanced is like saying Poop is tasty and should be a flower.

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    Yes, FOX news is biased and one would think this would be common knowledge considering the fact that a deluge of FOX's internal memos reveal that it's primary goal is to damage the Democratic party. In fact, the one crusade shared by nearly every host is to smear Hillary Clinton and lambast both her and Bill with personal insults. The views expressed on FOX by the majority of it's pundits, hosts, and anchors are overwhelmingly right wing but, to be "fair and balanced", every major media outlet has painfully obvious political leanings and loyalties though many of them won't admit it. Take the New York Times for example: It consistantly denied that it is dedicated to the cause of the left wing until an internal memo popped out of the woodwork and revealed that the paper had a deeply rooted liberal bias.

    Here's some stuff I wrote on the matter:

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/privat...-than-nyt.html (Niftydrifty vs Cold Dirt: FNC exemplifies poor journalism, much more biased than NYT)

    Cold Dirt dodged my private debate but if anyone else would like to take his place, I'd be pleased to debate them about Fox's extreme bias.

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    I think the better question is "Is FOX news?"

    The Fox admixture of news with opinion peddling negates it as far as being a news outlet as far as I'm concerned. It does not meet basic standards for journalistic integrity required to call it News.

    It's really a hybrid of news and commentary, with the news chosen to support the commentary.

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    Fox is payed by the extreme right of the US. Its a puppet of the current government for example. Rupert Murdoch is the slave of George Bush and his cabinet, he got a knife to his throat. Yes, Fox News is biased. Even the "liberal" in Hannister and Colmes is extreme right wing, but pretending in the scripts of fox news that he is liberal and democrat.

    Anyone here like the TV series "24"? Now that might just be the reality explained but not 100% like it is, you still have to draw some of your own conclutions.

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    Every time there is a news story about Obama (whether real or fabricated), FOX always prints his name on the news feed as "Barack Hussein Obama." In addition, they regularly refer to "homicide bombings" in Israel, and "Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez" as though there was no controversy whatsoever about those labels. Whether or not you agree that they're accurate labels, they were obviously chosen to push a specific political agenda.

    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.

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

    Re: Is FOX news biased?

    Not anymore than MSNBC or CNN infact the only show that is decisively biased is Hannity and Colmes however, that show is supposed to be biased and it's biased towards both sides of the spectrum. Now alot of you'll say that O'reilly is biased well compare him to that left wing shill Keith Olberman it's no comparison as to who is more biased. Then there's the UCLA study that found Fox to be centrist. What's really sad here is that the left has two of the three 24 hour news networks, all of public broadcasting, and all three of the big networks IE ABC CBS and NBC and yet they still complain about Fox News, it's Fox News that that is called a propaganda machine while these leftist nutbags don't realize how indoctrinated they are because they complain about the one station and then ignore the littany of propaganda they are fed from the NYT's to the PBS.
