Are you frigid kidding me??
~Following My Own Flow~
I used to watch a FOX cable news channel fairly regularly, about 5+ years ago...
But I actually don't pay much attention to news these days...
I listen to the news on my local news/talk radio station (fox news radio for national news), since it's something to do on the drive to work, but as always, I try to factor in the possibility of bias.

Do not write in this space!
I can't speak for all Liberals (Democrats), but I do. I also listen to Rush, Hannity, Levin and Neil Borks for the same reason - to better understand what "the other side" has to say whether I agree with them or not. It's one way we learn and derive a better overall view of the nature of politics in this country...atleast that's how I see it anyway. It's the same reason I read from various news sources, i.e., NYTimes, Washington Post just to give two contrasting views.
I think if you focus on only one political slant you really miss the bigger picture. In any case, I like to think that after reviewing both sides of a particular issue I'm better able to give a more informed opinion and, thus, make better decisions politically.

This is the only FOX NEWS I watch:
'The whole universe is going to die!'
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
For me, the only shows that I sometimes watch on Fox News are Bret Baier, Shepard Smith, and Bill O'Reilly. Everything else is a waste of time.
Instead, to better understand the conservative point of view I tend to rely on think tanks and magazines that people have mentioned. Some of my favorites are the Weekly Standard, AEI, Commentary Magazine, The Economist, and random foreign policy blogs like the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy and Michael Totten.
