    Oh my goodness, that shameless hussy! She interviewed a man who that day declared his candidacy for President on her prime time show? Wow.

Of course everyone watches Fox News to get an update on Dancing With The Stars and the Stanley Cup playoffs.

    Sorry, I forgot this post.

    The point I am making is that Fox News is the Mouthpiece for the Republican Party. Case in point is they feature as guests all Republicans who declare their candancy for president. So far they have had Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. This doesn't bother me, I am simply making the point that nobody does this for the Democratic party. And I don't want anybody doing it for them either.

    That's an interesting argument. Can you show us where Hillary Clinton has tried to get on FOX and been denied? Or even where Hillary has made herself available? Or even where Hillary has been willing to expose herself to actual questions in a non-softball atmosphere at all for the past several years?

    The funny thing is, she actually went after him, trying to get him on the "you've got a problem with women, don't you?" angle.

    She didn't succeed, necessarily, from the little of it I heard (I don't have TV in my house), but she was hardly being a mouthpiece.

    yes, Fox news is an RNC infomercial that cherry picks stories in order to appeal to the confirmation bias of its viewers. MSNBC tries to do the same thing, but fails miserably. both should be loosely categorized under infotainment, not journalism.

    Comedy Central does infotainment better than either of them, but probably not after Jon Stewart leaves the Daily Show.

    But the media matters graph lists 15 candidates and that is what you used. I know its been near the end of March since Cruz announced, last week Paul announced and Rubio announced over the weekend.I seriously doubt Cruz, Paul, and Rubio been on a total of 244 times since their announcement.

    I am simply making the point that nobody does this for the Democratic party. And I don't want anybody doing it for them either.
    Obama only won 2008 because the media propped him up. Obama had Oprah Winfrey's endorse and appeared other talk shows and the media in general did positive name recognition stories about Obama.
    "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"

    We expected you to defend them to the death. Just waiting for Grim and US Con to jump in and complete the trifecta.

    Still surprised (as mentioned in another thread) none of the networks have tried to do a nightly block of shows like The Daily Show, Colbert Report, The Soup, Bill Maher, etc. The current version of basically talk radio on TV seems to only really work for Fox anymore, but some reason the other networks keep trying.


    To the OP/Poll, I would have said yes originally, but people brought up some good points. After reading and thinking about it, it does seem like Fox News is less the mouthpiece and more pulling at least a few of the strings in the party. Not really with the RNC (they could be, but kind of doubt it) but more with the voters.

    Because there are how many other candidates for the Democratic party right now besides Hillary Clinton...?

    Maybe they do this because the people who watch the Fox News network are interested in the candidates. My local ABC network affiliate here in NH has had all of the candidates on and even guys who haven't officially declared yet, like George Pataki, Chris Christie, Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, Scott Walker, just in the last few weeks alone....does that mean WMUR is also a mouthpiece for the Republican Party (or maybe they know that some people actually want to hear from the candidates)?
