    Equivocation, obfuscation and now projection. I'm about to win right wing bingo on page 1 of the thread.

    Does the thread title say "Editorial Bias Across MSM Sources" ? No. It does not.

    It's clear that the OP is stating that he feels Fox News (which isn't even considered news, even by themselves) shouldn't be used in Breaking News.

    If you want to talk about that, please do so.

    If not, expect for others to call you on your shoddy debate tactics.

    The topic of the thread is "The guidelines for the BN forum openly state..." - using your OP's opening words. Your use of Fox News as an example for it's discussion in no way limits my response to that subject.

    Maybe it can be moved to Non-MSM Breaking News.

    That way, they can be lumped along with Daily Caller, Breitbart and OANN. Just where they belong.

    Fox News isn't a bona-fide news organization by any means. Say what you want about conservative media outlets but by its own admission it's not a news organization.

    We already know that it spreads conspiracy theories fit for InfoWars which obviously isn't a bona-fide news organization. There might have been a time when Fox was as such, but that time has long passed.

    Further to the point, the guidelines state that articles should not "contain overly partisan commentary and/or are otherwise clearly biased." This is pretty much every single Fox News article. Indeed the entire Fox News website is clearly biased based on what stories they emphasize and spend time on. Several prominent figures have given speeches at campaign rallies for Trump in an act of blatant bias.

    How much more blatantly biased and open about its status as "not a news organization" does Fox have to get before it's not allowed in the BN forum?
    You should launch an impeachment inquiry against the site owner(s). You've got them now.

    You’re winning nothing. You’ve made no arguments.

    You can claim whatever you want, but this thread is about Fox News as it says in the title. Want to make a similar argument for MSNBC? Go for it in your own thread.
