    I don't mind that Fox News is conservative, but I do mind when their conservative views account for 90% of the so called News Channels air time and they hide behind the excuse of it being "opinion journalism". Normally opinion journalism should not make things up and provide at least some sort of credible rebut by the "opposition" to the issue. Also the whole definition of "opinion journalism" is idiotic.. either you are a News Channel and all your programs should be under the same scrutiny for bias, lies and so on, or you are an opinion channel with minimal news content. Dont call yourself a news channel if you are an opinion channel and dont call yourself "fair and balanced" when you clearly are not 90% of the time.

    Also at times bleeds into the general news reporting via "comments" from the journalists doing the reporting or the anchors.
    I will be glad you go after MSNBC for the exact same thing. Can I expect that any time soon or should I just continue to hold out hope that one day you might see the light?

    I love Fox News as it helps in keeping my eye on some folks and good for some laughs.

    The poll has a measure of force built into the response. How else would the most watched news outlet suddenly disappear from the air?
    HUH? How can you say that Fox News represents mainstream America and then turn around and say because nobody listens to it?

    One of the things I can do as an admin. is see who voted for what even if the poll is not public. As of the time of my post, no conservatives voted in this poll.

    No because we need something to make fun of on the internet.

    I cant see MSNBC, so I cant comment on it. But any rules would hit MSNBC just as hard.

    I don't want Fox News off the air. I just want them to stop their pandering fear-mongering bull****.

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

    For me personally, this isn't a yes or no question. But since there were only two options to vote for, I had to take sides and so I voted for "Yes". But it's more complicated than that.

    Do I want them off the air for the incredibly biased, sometimes even fabricated "news"? Yes - if they're going to call themselves a news channel. I think every news channel should strive to be as unbiased as it possibly can. Just deliver the actual news regardless of what it is, don't let your opinions dictate how or what you deliver. And yes, this goes for liberally biased news channels too.

    Do I want them off the air period? No. People must be able to choose for themselves what they want to watch, even if it is biased or fabricated news.
