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

    The initial premise being that FOX NEWS is a NEWS organization is flawed to begin with. It's far from a News organization any longer.

    It's the equivalent of right wing talk radio, entertainment for the right. They rarely actually report news any longer. What they do report is the right wing talking points.

    They used to be the media outlet for the Bush administration, each of their commentators espousing the talking points sent to them from the White House by Rove each day, and passed on by their leader to the "NEWS" anchors.

    It was pretty sad to see the research done on this new media showing that people who watched this entertainment network were very uninformed about the war and the lead up to the war. It also showed that they were misinformed on a host of other issues.

    I guess for those who watch Fox, it's not so much about getting accurate information about the issues, as much as it's about hearing what you want to hear about the issue so you can feel justified about your ignorance....... "Because I heard it on Fox......"

    I'd be pretty embarrassed to be so publicly misled by the media. Doesn't seem to bother Fox viewers.

    I guess it's true, ignorance is bliss........

    Seems like a silly debate. Fox in prime time is like all other networks, entertainment.

    It seems to me that Fox is no better or worse than the knuckleheads at MSNBC. I am not sure what the audience is for either one. Both stations are for people who want to be reassured with their views.

    There is a lot more grey in the world than either of these stations want to acknowledge.

    I guess the statement that people get the governments they deserve is pretty accurate.

    Wow !
    93% positive yes or no !
    Maybe for me..
    Is there a "Republican Party"?
    Or have the extremists destroyed it ?
    And which is worse, the Liberal month (MSNBC) or Fox ??
    I have respect for neither.

    The bottom line is that we end up being a nation of fools.
    This must change.
    Maybe a tax on entertainment ?
    Or US government news ?
    Or PBS ?
    Or PCN ?
    I say that we should be less a nation of laws and more a nation of honesty.
    In other words, state that the Maddow, Matthews shows are just an attempt at entertainment...same for Fox....

    I think its time we ask the question that really needs to be asked. And that would be.....http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...tic-party.html

    No, it is a part of the two party political circus - DON'T FORGET: it was democrats who got republican elected in 2000,5, and republicans who got people to vote democrat in 2008
