    HAhahahahahahahaha!!! FOX NEWS # 1 for 11 years straight...too bad the radical
    professors can't change it, it's not because they aren't trying, that's for sure.

    I sure wish that were true, but most of them are old folks who have their TV tuned to Fox all day long. They don't have exposure to anything else, so guiding their perceptions and opinions is pretty easy to do.

    Fox News does as well as it does in the ratings because a bunch of retirees have it on all day. It's sort of a subliminal assault on their weakening minds.

    The issue is easily settled. Watch Fox, then switch to one of the other networks and compare the coverage. Make up your own mind. If Fox is lying, as some claim, identify the lie. The professor should have nothing to worry about if Fox is as bad as she says.

    Watch RT, then watch the same story on another network. See if RT tells actual lies, or just shades things to make the US look as bad as possible.
    RT is the Russian version of Fox, and they don't know the cold war is over.

    Perfect example is the MSLSD over reaction buffoonery coverage of the Marco Rubio's water drinking. Rachel Mannow and Rev Al were all over it...in fact, they showed that clip on MSLSD 155 times in one day, compared to Fox with only 12.

    The MSM is trying to do to Rubio what they did to Romney, overplay a clip and marginalize the person in an effort to deflect away from the real issues of the BS from the POTUS at the SOTU.

    @methinks I think the White House has ordered the msm to destroy Rubio, and he isn't the only target. The Democrats have an entire list of conservatives they intend to ruin.

    @Realthinker Just wait for the fat attacks on Christie...oh wait, the Clinton's WH doctor already fired the first shot...he might die in office.

    Attack and marginalize.

    The 2016 election will be uglier than this last one! Just wait and see.

    You haven't seen how much they'll be foaming at the mouth!

    @Realthinker Even if that were true, how the hell would that differ from the GOP's (especially the teabagger's) efforts to destroy democrats since obama started running in the first election?

    @mtkopf Yeah, that MSNBC and the rest of the MSM is questionable. One thing is for sure....they ALL slant the news in one fashion or another.

    @InjusticeSucks Every whiny liberal starts screaming fascism everytime Fox is brought up in a discussion. They are more fair and balanced than CNN or MSNBC. Any one with any common sense would not allow themselves to be limited to one source, it almost always slants one way or the other eventually. Humans aren't capable of being un biased in my opinion.
  • #103

    @Calfkiller No, they are not more fair and balanced than CNN. They are about the same as MSNBC and marginally better than Mother Jones or the National Review. Go ahead and add all of those along with the dailykos and w/e other rags you can think of. CNN might suck but it has less slant than Fox. They just don't say exactly what you want to hear. MSNBC is exactly like FOX. What do you expect from a news corporation built by a guy who got rich selling tabloids.

    political science professor Stephanie Wolfe has an agenda, That agenda is to liberal indoctrinate young people, The agenda is to get young people to adopt the Gay is Ok and socialism is better than capitalism, Global warming is real,.Tax the Rich, Welfare State Police State.....Liberal agenda.
    This is why the media doesnt report on the real news in the country, They give The Obama or any democrats a pass.
    Until people realize that this is a problem, They surely will not hold these anti American leftist radicals accountable.

    She's not trying to indoctrinate, but to vaccinate. She's helping them to see how biased news functions. That experience will serve them well to immunize them from the effects of propaganda designed to confuse and neutralize them.

    Well, it's not a valid news source. But then, none of them are. Unless you witnesses the news yourself, you can't know if what you hear is true. Myself, I check several different sources, then try to read between the lines. It sucks because I've become such a cynic. I've found that if I follow the money, It usually leads to the truth. Hence, my moniker. ;-] Profit motivates, and power equals money.

    You probably have a fairly objective view of the world, and that's good.
    The problem with Fox isn't that they are biased, because any news source is biased in some way, but that the bias of Fox News is no accident, it a plan.
  • #74

    @harold_lloyd Oh sure it's a plan, they target a demographic. A demographic that they feel will give them the highest share of the market. But then, they all do. It's all about the money, the truth is secondary.

    Not in every case.

    Oh, and when I say a 'plan', I don't mean an ordinary business plan, I mean a nefarious plot to steer public opinion according to the wishes of their owner, Rupert Murdoch.

    I've been a news junkie for a long time. What I see in Fox's news shows is more straight forward reporting than I've seen since Walter Cronkite retired. Admittedly Fox's opinion shows are biased but that's why they are opinion shows. However America Live, The Fox Report or Fox News Sunday are head and shoulders above what I've seen on any other network.

    I'll give you Fox News Sunday is informative, but it isnot reporting anymore the face the nation or meet the press. But most of fox mews hannity, oreilly, etc. is trash...

    @Thunderchicken Not so. When they ran footage of that pedophile congressman foley from florida and the story of the idaho senator craige arrested in the mens room they ran a (D) next to both names until forced to correct them. That is disinformation, a technique recommended by gobbles. Fox does not run news, it runs a propaganda operation. I have watched it (presently I have no cable news stations, but I did watch it in the past).

    FoxNews is the only non-biased news channel in the country. What Obama and the Dumbocrats want to do is to indoctrinate all the young people into Liberalism and the flawed theory that total and complete government control of our lives will make everything better. Without Fox to call the liberals out there is no media voice out there that is even close to being moderate, much less conservative. Everything is far left liberal lunacy.

    America ! we finally know the truth about why our society is going to
    "Hell in a handbasket" our educational system is teaching it. they are
    teaching our children, how not ! to think for themselves. teaching them
    its wrong to have their own opinion !!!

    And Fox is different how?

    If you want truth, watch the Daily Show. They are at least as unbiased as Fox, and a whole lot better at pointing out hypocrisy.

    The test of information is how well it helps you to predict the future.

    The test of an information outlet is how closely what they tell you conforms to objective reality and helps to predict the future.

    Students are being taught to apply those criteria to any outlet, and make up their own minds.

    @wonka45ACP
    No, not true.
    If unemployment goes up by .1%, that an objective fact.
    If your outlet says that unemployent is up and it's Obama's fault, that's not so objective.
    If you give me enough objective data, I'll be able to figure out if it's someone's fault for myself.

    Fox News is the propaganda arm of the Republican party, not a source of unbiased news coverage.

    If you think otherwise, then Rupert Murdoch owns your brain and you don't have a clue.

    Nothing in the foregoing makes any statement about MSNBC.

    If Fox were only a conservative news outlet, there would be no problem. But when you cross the line between information and propaganda, you lose your credibility and rightly so.

    I don't know for sure, I've never watched either one.
    Actually, I guess that's an answer too.
    I'd classify MSNBC as not a reliable news source.
    Just like Fox.

    For the little while I was in college (70's), we were not allowed to use any television as a source of information. The source had to be published, reputable, and recognized. Has things changed since then?? Unless it is something of a Journalism class or something. They still can't use cartoons though..... right??

    @mimi57 - I'm probably showing my red neck but I don't even know enough about the guy to respond. I watch precious little TV and certainly not from those who attempt to steer me which way to think. Like I suspect you are - just give me the facts and I'll think for myself. Bear in mind that I don't have that much to work with in that department. LOL.

    We see the evidence of Liberal bias every day, every where. But you won't hear one of these Liberals on this forum admit it. Maybe if Liberals were the least bit honest and admit the undeniable, we might actually pay attention to words from their mouths. It is a waste of time trying to debate a Liberal. They will never admit anything when it comes to their stink.

    Not only was that lady politicaly biased, she was a lousy liar. She told her supervisers she never said not to use Fox when they asked her, after printing it in report's outline of instruction. Idgiot!

    Yes, I believe that blatant bias is a problem. People have gotten so used to the left leaning media reporting in a biased way, that they think it is ok to pass along that bias to students. I'm glad that the college has stepped in to stop this behavior. What kind of education are the students getting if they are not allowed to investigate all views? My last statement is sad! News should be reported straight forward! No lean in any way liberal or conservative. News exist to report on things happening without the newscaster putting his or her own spin on it to fit their personal beliefs. Reporting only the facts and not what they think about it. After hearing the facts of a news report, it is the person watching, listening or reading to come up with their own conclusion about the factual news story. That is how news broadcasting and writing started out and that is how it should be done today. I don't want your opinion or your twist on the news! Just the facts! I think it's time for a new news network. One that is factual, fair and unbiased! I wonder how hard that would be to get started. You definitely could not use current news personalities, they are too set in their ways. Then,of course, the other networks would start whining when a story stated factually does not line up with the biased story on the same event. All those left leaning networks would try to discredit the real news network. I don't see Fox doing that, unless it was Rush or Bill. I think Pierce would be the worst!

    I would discount all news agencies as valid sources for research assignments. At best, they might be used as signposts to look for valid sources.
