Really all of the big news stations aren't very helpful. I think it laughable when i here people who's only source of info is cnn or fox etc. and they use it as a source for an argument. If you want news about something research it don't go to fox or cnn.

fox news is ignorant of facts, and they also really only show one side of the story, the side that supports their agenda. but the reason they have so many viewers, 1) it is a national news station. 2) most people arent aware of fox's tricky tactics. 3) people dont like to do their own research on subjects so they just listen to it on the TV

All networks are biased. News reports might not be unless there are omissions of facts, but it is inescapable. If I view an issue from a certain angle, I will, and that creeps inevitably into reporting. I wouldn't say they are ignorant of ''facts'', but sometimes espouse extreme viewpoints, due to the people they hire, and the head honchos.

rofl...its sad when genuine reporting of facts is seen as biased, while opinion based pieces are the new "middle of the road". The news media in this country is slanted so far left, that anything moderate is considered "right wing".

Facts are facts people; reporting used to be about the 5 W's...now its about ratings.

The fact is, Fox has the most viewers because most people are sick of being told what to believe (having the facts spun), and just want the news...The day CNN or MSNBS figure that out, we might have more than one legit news outlet in America...
