Fox News presents both points of view and gives both sides airtime, but you can obviously tell there is right wing bias.


but CNN and MSNBC are blatantly liberal but no one ever points that out because only the angry liberals ever rant and rave about this kind of thing. Republicans take the high road.

wel it's not so much the opinions and op ed contributors on the news station as it is the method they deliver their news.


the bias is ever so subtle, but at least Fox News makes an attempt to dish out parity.


for instance in discussing possible plans for the war, whether retreat is an option. military leaders agreed that retreat would only be possible after stabilizing the country which could take at least another year.

then a woman walks in and protests pointing out precedent that it could be done sooner, and should be done sooner.

(the juxtaposition of generals who know what they are doing and a woman who is mad.. sums up the bias)

but at least they show both sides.


look at MSNBC:

Make fun of FoxNews
Focus on the African Americans (while simultaneously leaving out the Asian Americans, as my housemate very frequently criticizes)
Point out the foibles of the Bush Administration

where is the parity? at least make it seem smart.

You are just SO used to the liberal media that something halfway in between seems like it is biased.

Fox News does claim to be in full support of the White House.

let's see when and if the DEmocrats retake the White house, if FoxNews keeps up with its promise.

The one thing I notice with FOX is they aren't constantly demeaning democrats or republicans. When I watch CNN all I hear is how bush sucks... Republicans suck...

When I think of guests saying "Democrats are America's enemy" I think of Fox News.

When I think of people saying "Republicans are America's enemy"...well CNN doesn't actually say that.

So it's easy to see why many think Fox News is simply for those who like to hear themselves talk 24/7 and spread hate.

precisely.



the only thing close to a retort that I've heard Bush utter back to the Left is in a weekly radio address in which he angrily said he did not care about his legacy and simply wanted to fix things.

I am not defending Fox News here. I am defending striving for impartiality.
