It's obvious that Fox News shows a clear conservative bias, but rather than accepting this, they still maintain to be fair and balanced. I support free speech, but when "news" networks lie to the public, and people believe it, I get really mad.

No matter your position on the political spectrum, most of us can agree that the stuff they say is pretty outrageous and atrocious.

I don't know if you guys have ever heard of LiberalViewer, but he is a youtube user who specializes in political commentary. Take a look at this video.

Anyways, what's your opinion on Fox News, and news station bias in general?

EDIT: Check at least one or two of LiberalViewer's videos. I know it's a hard concept to understand, but it IS possible to have a strong opinion to one side and still be unbiased, and he truly is unbiased. Don't judge a book by its cover.

My dad watches Fox and believes what Glenn Beck says.

You should point out to your dad that Glenn Beck himself said he was an entertainer, and not a journalist. LiberalViewer actually has a video about it.

Americans will believe anything they see on TV. If they claimed there were aliens on earth and held in aircraft hangers, or that 9/11 was a hoax Americans would be dumb enough to believe it.

I was at my cousins house this weekend and told them to turn on the news to see the balloon story unfold. He turned on Fox news I asked why he wanted to only watch Fox despite the coverage of the story and he replied "Because they are the only news channel who tells the truth." I laughed at first only to find out he was serious. -_-

It is possible to be unbiased and still have a strong opinion to one side, and he truly is unbiased. Check at least a couple of his videos.

The guy talking sounds like he wears black rimmed glasses and wears a scarf. He's also pointing out the brutally obvious, and his name is LIBERALVIEWER, you don't think he has some bias in his clips either?


I hate fox news too though.
#22
Simply stated, by deliberately (and rather subversively, given their pretensions to balance) promoting an agenda that is Right-Wing on even an American Scale they do an immense amount of damage, considering that the alternatives in the US as far as televised media are either Centre-Right, Sensationalist, or Both.

Are you equally as mad at the other news networks, such as MSNBC? IMO most of the other networks lean more to the left than Fox does to the right. But there's always a bias one way or the other.

Fox News is as biased as CNN.
Mainly to say every news network besides fox is in bed with Obama and all his buddies while Fox just leans to the right, bucking the trend since news is generally pretty liberal, as is the overall arts community.
They certainly arent fair and balanced but as long as they can back things up with FACTS they can say whatever they want in my opinion. They can be as biased as they want as long as they have plausible support, which in many cases they do.

I try to get my news from unbiased sources. I'm not a fan of left-wing biased sources either, but they have done far less damage to the American public than right-wing stations have.

Talk about a bias! yes Fox News is a Conservative news channel, but to use someone's elses views that call themself LiberalViewer is just as biased.

Yes fox news has a bias...so does every single news network. yeah Fox has Bill O Reily and Glenn Beck, but MSNBC has Kieth Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. as a moderate, i watch the news, not the commentary. its not like Fox is brainwashing, people understand its not the news its commentary.

but for the White House to go after Fox for talking about Obama's czars (which is actually a legitamate concern no other media has brought up), the WHITE HOUSE, going after the MEDIA? thats so retarded. im sorry, but whether u like Obama or hate him u have to admit every network besides Fox totally kisses his ass. all im saying is Fox is no worse than any other network, theyre just more blatant about it.

MSNBC doesn't have the systemic bias of Fox and Olbermann et al aside are hardly left wing on a global scale.

Fox leans far to the right. And anyone who says CNN, say, is remotely to the left is deluded.

Yes, but CNN's motto isn't "fair and balanced". Any smart person knows that there's no such thing as an unbiased newstation.

I hate Obama and said all along that he wouldn't keep his promises. However, I still dislike Fox News. You can literally hear the hate in their voices when they say the word "liberal". It's like they're talking about a disease.

Fox news has freely admitted in court to lying. They succesfully defended that position under the 1st amendment.
