    Watch and see. The news side is news, the opinion side is conservative and they have liberal guests to keep things interesting. Many liberal politicians avoid Fox because they'd rather take the path of least resistance. You will never see the corrupt elderly Mrs. Clinton on Hannity, although I'd buy tickets for that show.

    Why on Earth would ANY Democrat who expected to be treated fairly go on Hannity?

    I don't have to. You made a claim, and I asked you to support it by answering questions. Questions like: How do 'democratic strategists' provide balance to the other people on the issue? What do they do? Why do they provide balance? You seem to be unable to even though you're SURE that they do. That seems like a position based more on faith than fact.

    You will never believe what I tell you and I'm not wasting my time trying. If you are genuinely interested, assuming you have a television, turn it on, tune into Fox News, watch their news programs, watch their opinion programs. Make your own decisions. Why should I do something for you that you are able to do for yourself? It's becoming obvious to me that you don't watch the station so if you are interested enough to annoy me with your questions, watch and decide for yourself why Fox is the number one cable news channel.

    Re: Is The Fox News Channel The Mouthpiece For The GOP?

    One of the more mystifying things seen on forums like this is people claiming with a straight face that Fox News is an honest and unbiased news source. These people must have never seen the channel.

    Even Fox so called "straight" news, during the day, is heavily slanted in topics and innuendo. It's not that difficult to find the one or two or three stories that might be best used to attack or embarrass Obama or the Democrats, and hammer those stories all the live long day during "straight" news coverage. In fact, Fox does just this every single day.

    You've spent so much effort to try and avoid answering the question. I'm just asking you if you know what someone does and why they're given that title. It's clear that you don't. Continuing to avoid the question just makes it clearer.

    It's because your question is stupid. Watch Fox. Make up your own mind. Write down the names of the people who claim to be democrats or liberals. Look them up. I'm so not doing your work for you. Jesus. Do you expect others to give you what you want or do your work for you. If you do, you're talking to the wrong guy.

    There is nothing stupid about asking you what a person does to fulfil a role AFTER you've stated that they do in fact fulfil it. If you tell me you're the director of Y department at X company, it's not stupid to ask you what your role is within the company. It's actually a pretty straight forward question that you seem COMPLETELY unable to answer even though you're sure that they 'balance' the opinions of others.

    Lol, I'm not asking you who they are. I'm not questioning their political allegiance. I'm asking you what they do that makes them "democratic strategists". I think that if you knew, you'd have answered already.

    No you asked me what a political strategist was or did. Well, it beats the **** out of me. I told you, watch, write down their names, look them up. That's the only way you'll find out because I don't care and I'm not going to do your work for you. Now, leave me alone.
