    It wouldn't make me happy, but it wouldn't make me unhappy either. I wouldn't really care

    I can't vote, as there is no "I couldn't give a ****" option.

    This. Though I wouldn't mind if they were a little more ethical in the way they reported the news.

    I have to claim ignorance, not that I mind. I don't read the tabloids, either.

    Don't be stupid; it's clear from our answers that no one interpreted the question that way. And in fact, most of us in our answers specifically stated that we would be against such a thing.

    Ironically, this is why we don't like Fox News -- because that's exactly the kind of "reporting" they do. They completely misinterpret whatever was said and twist it in such a way to make it seem to be the exact opposite in order to make whatever point they're trying to make.

    It's anti-journalism. It's gossip pretending to be news. It's like a whole TV station full of petty sorority girls bitching about everyone not in their own little cliche.

    The only thing I like about Fox is hearing my mind play "Dirty Laundry".

    Re: ONLY FOR LIBERALS: Would it make you happy to see Fox News off the air permanent

    I consider myself to be a moderate-Democrat, but no, I wouldn't want FoxNews to go away permanently. I just wish they lived up to their slogan, "Fair and Balanced" because clearly the majority of their programming/commentary has a high Conservative slant. CNN, for example, may lean more Liberal, but atleast they try very hard to show both sides of the issues even among their on-air commentators.

    For example, Anderson Cooper...I like the way he reports the news and his special reports expecially his post-Presidential debates or Addresses. His panel is made up of people from both sides of the political spectrum (even if it seems to be the same people most of the time), and he allows both sides to speak freely. Too often what I witness of FoxNews commentators is they may present a mix political panel, but their commentators don't always allow those who oppose their Conservative views speak. That bugs me!! But it's their show. Still...

    So much for "fair and balanced" in that regard. But no. I wouldn't want FoxNews to go away; just tone down the Conservative political rhetoric and show both sides of the issue.
