    The NO's should have to explain their answer. Why not? How in the name of Zeus' butthole can you say Fox does NOT engage in right wing propaganda??

    And saying MSNBC does it for the other side is not a valid answer.

    Maybe you could start a poll to convince the mods to ban anyone that doesn't explain every vote they make in a poll.

    The same reason you libs can claim that CBS,NBC,ABC,CNN, BBC or any other liberal network does not engage in liberal propaganda.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    If FOX was Republican propaganda, their 2008 election coverage would have been much more slanted towards McCain than it actually was:

    FOX also has the most bipartisan viewership of all the news networks:

    Re: Is FOX News a propaganda beacon for the Republican Party?

    Is the question whether FOX is being used by the GOP for propoganda, or is it is FOX inadvertently spreading propoganda for the GOP?

    The first question, no.

    The second question, yes.

    Propaganda - information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc.
    Beacon - a person, act, or thing that warns or guides; a person or thing that illuminates or inspires

    Are you so caught up in rooting for your team that you're unwilling to admit that Fox News spreads info intended to help the Republicans? Or that they try to warn people about the Democrats and hope to pique people to certain courses of action? (*cough* tea-baggers *cough*)

    Just because you have been here four years does not mean you did not just try to stereotype and label millions of people with the by now oh so cliched "tea baggers" appellation. Aside from that obviously common and shallow wellspring, how does Fox News, which reports the same info as the other cable news networks, try to spread news that helps the republicans? Do you like so many interwebezrs think conservative=republican and liberal=democrats? If so, 'splains a great deal about your befuddlement, minus the cannabis.

    Since most of the media in the US including the majority of news papers are left of center, why shouldn't Fox be right of center? Its only fair.
    According to pew poll, Fox's viewers are 11% liberal, and CNN's are 41% conservative. Makes one think....
