    I re-read this 4 times including out loud and it never resembled anything I've ever read. Do you have a virus, ugly?

    What about the fox news channel is not news. Are you basing your opinion of the channel on the opinion shows like hannity or Oreily or are you basing it on the actual news shows?

    I'm basing it on "news" shows like Fox and Friends.

    I don't want to get into a big debate, it's not questionable that it is biased towards the right.

    Fox News is brilliant though. There are lots of credible news channels that cater towards moderate thinking. Fox News saw there was no right wing news outlet and jumped at the chance which is why it is the highest rated news channel bar none.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I dont know which shows you think are targeted to the moderate thinking population but I provided a poll from media matter a while back that showed people believe that the news media leans heavy left while they thought fox was more moderate. I agree it leans right but is much closer to the center than cnn or msnbc.

    I can agree, except you have to concede that fox news is very conservative.

    The problem is News is more of a business than it ever was and both sides are telling their side what they want to hear.

    News is less about credibility and more about pleasing a side.

    MSNBC can be left, fox news IS right.

    If you have Keith Olbermann on as a commentator you are far far left IMO.

    I agree with you that fox is conservative but unlike the other media outlets they criticized "their" president where the others dont criticize Obama. Fox did create a nitch market of about 2 million viewers as compared to 20 or so million for the major media tv outlets.

    But having a prime-time lineup of Hannity, Beck and O'Reily makes you "much closer to the center"?
    There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.

    Completely disagree, but agree to disagree.

    Sounds as ridiculous as Ugly saying Fox news is moderate, no?
