    OR.....as I was suggesting, let the viewers decide and simply turn off the TV or change channels.

    Fox News has always been partisan. But has it become propaganda?





    What RT and Sputnik are to Vladimir Putin, Fox News is to Donald Trump. His own propaganda/apologia network.

    Fox news is a business and as long as there is money to be made by selling "meat" in the form of negativity, carefully presented 1/2 truths, faux-outrage and misinformation to cantankerous and afraid customers, they will continue to be successful.

    Well your opinion goes against the OP doesn't it?

    If they have such a low viewer rating, why are the other media outlets so up in arms trying to shut it down?

    That is the lefts MO. If they can't challenge it with ideas, they try to destroy it.

    Look at what they do to people they disagree with. They go to the places where these people go and make life unbearable for them, or they try to destroy them personally.

    I don't remember right leaning politicians trying to destroy left leaning politicians for the eight years Obama was in control.

    While fox is IMO the worst main stream media bar none with MSNBC being second (others can order them how they want but fox is among the worse main stream) i dont think its a critical issue. i do find bad media to be disruptive/destructive but the flip side of that is it doesnt make/create stupid people.

    People that think Fox or other strong biased media or extremely biased media is true are broken already, some severely broken. Their ignorance and biased wasn't created by fox or news like it, its "feed". Now that can be an issue in its self, that these orgs (like the presidents political talking points) inspire and empower SOME whack jobs but it doesnt create them.

    These orgs exist because they have people to feed, scare, shock, anger, inspire etc and it sells

    Obama pounded home the idea when he was President that Fox News was bad and this is what that has grown in to. Sad really.

    The usual suspects will sputter “but CNN ... but MSNBC ...” Whatever. There is no rational comparison.
    Not only that, but they have carefully crafted a "liberal" media bias with their viewers that culminated with Trump using "fake news" to down play every bad report that comes out. This was weaponized and used to damage the credibility, in the minds of conservatives, of real news media and has helped split this country even further. They truly are the enemy of the people, Trump claimed the media is.

    If it wasn't for leftists watching Fox News to see if they say something wrong, I don't they would have the ratings they currently have.

    It seems whenever there is a thread about something Fox News said, it is a lefty posting it.
