    Just curious what you observe?

    Is FOX News a propaganda beacon for the Republican Party to influence the masses?

    I believe that Fox News is a conservative media outlet. And they are the only one. I do not believe that Fox is a propaganda beacon for the republican party. CNN is left leaning and MSNBC is out right liberal. All of the network news chanels are left of center.

    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.

    Officially? No. In the real world? Yes.

    Pretty much what Sgt Rock said.

    It is silly to think any real news org is any wing of any party. Are they right and left of center, of course. Does this make them a propaganda arm of any party in particular? Of course not.

    PS Now watch the poll run right down partisan lines.

    CNN isn't that left-leaning. If I had to pick, CNN would be my pick for the most fair and balanced. People who only watch Fox will sometimes spout that "all the other networks are liberal/socialist/state-run etc" but they don't know what they're talking about.

    After reaching what point of bias should they NOT be allowed to call themselves NEWS?

    Is MSNBC, CNN and HNC a propoganda beacon for the left?

    Does anyone care?

    Obviously those with issues are really demanding that those who just disagree with their views be snuffed out altogether and denied a voice and grappling the cracks wherever they think they form.

    Corporate News would be an easy way to sneak in a political platform for a political party.

    It would only make sense.....If I was a political giant I would figure a way to campaign 24/7 year round in the guise of a News channel....just say'n

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

    They lean right, so they're more friendly with the republican party than the democratic party. I don't know that they're really republican propaganda or specific to the republican party. I think it's more general.

    And people have opinions. That someone created a news channel with a lean doesn't surprise nor do I feel it's wrong. Although I don't think they should label themselves "fair and balanced" - that would imply impartial news reporting, which clearly they are not. And they usually air that "fair and balanced" message along all their political commentary/entertainment shows, showing their commentary/entertainments hosts in the commercial with "fair and balanced". They could have found a catch phrase that more accurately portrays their lean. Perhaps something like "Empowering conservative news" or "News for the right" or whatever. I don't know, but "fair and balanced"?
