    Wouldn't it be more efficient to just have the government own all news organizations so the good citizens of thje USA could be assured they were only receiving the true facts?

    .
    LOL......So you want the government to legally control all the propaganda?

    Sorry, but Clinton News Network, Ted Socialist Turner's creation, isn't "fair and balanced".

    Fox is an organization who has found what the target audience is, quite successfully. Due to the prime time opinion shows they broadcast, they have developed a largely conservative base of viewers. They do have a few left-leaning participants on some of their programs, but Fox realizes where the money is, and they are providing their customers with programming that their customers want. If CNN and MSNBC were doing the same thing, their ratings wouldn't be so low. In the world of show biz and television broadcasting, ratings are the name of the game. It wouldn't do Fox any good to be a "propaganda arm". Their viewers watch because they like what they see. They already know what they believe.

    Yes, Fox News has propaganda and it's for the GOP. It's not like it's the only one though. Other channels are propaganda networks for the DNC. We don't have an entirely free press.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Have you read it lately? It's really become quite interesting now that it's not state-controlled.

    I refuse to accept the possibility that there are actually people stupid enough to buy what Fox is selling without realizing what it is. That's as absurd as eating at McDonald's every day and never having been told it's unhealthy.
    Ever check out the liberal media?..... they share talking points word for word, all at the same time. Wonder how they do that?
