    I'm troubled that anyone can defend Fox news or Rupert Murdoch. It is blatantly biased and designed for the non-questioning/thinking mindless masses.
    I can defend Murdoch. He owns The Times which is one of the finest newspapers there is. Why he's not fucked it up before now is a complete mystery to me.
    He also owns 'The Sun' which like fox is just full of lies and propaganda lol

    Clearly you did not read the Pew Research Center report that featured the graph you cut and pasted, for it does not indicate that FOX is "far more objective" than MSNBC or CNN, far from it:

    On Fox News, in contrast, coverage of Obama was more negative than the norm (40% of stories vs. 29% overall) and less positive (25% of stories vs. 36% generally). For McCain, the news channel was somewhat more positive (22% vs. 14% in the press overall) and substantially less negative (40% vs. 57% in the press overall). Yet even here, his negative stories outweighed positive ones by almost 2 to 1.

    They haven't a foking clue what they're talking about.
    If you'd bothered to read all my posts you'd have seen that I was talking about a specific event. I made no judgement of Fox News in general.

    To be basically blunt, is not all Murdoch's propaganda channels be it by cable, satellite or paper aimed at trailer park trash that have a vote but don't have the IQ to think for themselves......

    As far a MSNBC goes they perform admirably as the Barrack Obama cheerleader squad. They adore the Messiah so! He can do no wrong.

    ^ nice attempt at distraction, earl.

    but you're going to have to try harder.

    you posted data from pew reseach that you apparently didn't even bother to read.....and the data concluded that fox had significantly more negative stories about obama than the other networks during the campaign. and btw, they've clearly ramped up the negative propaganda since he took office.

    anyway, now that earl has been put in his place, let's get back on topic....

    here's what fox has been running since obama took office

    The thing I find amazing is that you are applauding an attempt to squelch free speech. You are for the government attempting to silence a news agency? Could it be that you are comfortable with it because the fact is you are a commie pinko yourself?

    If it was Bush trying to discredit CNN, you would have a conniption fit.

    One thing that Bush did, that the dems are known for is he did not insult people and attack those that opposed him. A gracious man, that graciously turned over the White House to Obama. Unlike Billy Clinton, Bush treated Obama with respect and had gifts for his daughters. He welcomed him to the White House and facilitated a smooth turn over.

    Maybe we should look at some left wing sources that claim to be a news agency. Is there anyone tying to discredit this rag sheet?

    i think this strong and public defense against fox was risky, but will ultimately prove to be successfu for the white house.

    next summer when the off year campaigns really start heating up, everyone will be able to say openly that fox is simply the mouth piece of the republican party. everyone knew it before, but now it's in the public sphere and being discussed openly.

    fox has been publicly exposed for what it is....and it's about time.

    No, Fox News is a legimate news organization reporting the news which does opinion pieces just like the left-wing press does. The only reason some of yŠll are attempting to bash Fox News is they give an objective anaylsis of the days events vs the fantasy world un-reality you live in...

    A bit long but a good read!

    The War Is A Quagmire!

    "THE WHITE HOUSE - Despite the President's promise of a swift and decisive victory, Obama's War on Fox News has developed all signs of an unwinnable quagmire, making the White House even more isolated in its unilateral attempts to crush the growing media insurgency. As the war continues to grind on for a second month, public opinion is shifting towards a quick and complete withdrawal. While many observers still agree that the "War on Limbaugh" is a "just and necessary war," even the former supporters of the war effort are now labeling the War on Fox an "unnecessary war of choice" and claim that the cable channel had nothing to do with Obama's falling approval numbers.

    Some say that the general in charge, Anita Dunn, greatly underestimated the power of fiery critic Glenn "Muqtada" Beck and his band of radical followers, who have inflicted heavy casualties on White House forces.
    The war has recently passed an ugly milestone as Obama's hand-picked czar Van Jones exploded in the middle of the battlefield littered with pencils, notebooks, blackberries, and media tags, sending shockwaves of terror through the ranks of reporters in the service of the administration

    Accusations of war crimes continue to surface, the most recent war atrocity being Katie Couric's interview with Glenn Beck, after which the prominent Fox News commentator was found outside the CBS studios disoriented, with plucked eyebrows, and a coveted jar of M&Ms stolen from his pocket.
    While the notorious Guantanamo Bay prison is being shut down, President Obama is rumored to be in talks with Fidel Castro to use the East German political prison on Cuba's Isle of Pines as a secret detention center for the "enemy commentators." However, the White House's unilateral decision to classify all Fox News journalists as "enemy commentators" has been roundly criticized by human rights organizations, who maintain they should be covered by the "Inside the Beltway Convention

    At home, the numbers of mainstream media outlets sending troops to War on Fox News have dwindled. The most notably absent is the New York Times, which has so far refused to enter the war. A stern-faced and combative President Obama, surrounded by veterans of press corps and families of donors, denounced their action as an "act of treason," rejecting any timetable on his war.
    But while the President drapes his unpopular policies with concern for the well-being of American journalism, more and more editors, reporters, and even unionized janitorial staff are beginning to oppose their commander-in-chief for trying to "win" an unwinnable war with their hands, instead of just using executive powers to ban all dissenting speech.

    I've been in the media for a long time, I signed up because I hate this right-wing, knuckle-dragging, imperialist system, and I would gladly sacrifice any number of my fellow Americans to advance my agenda - but this is a dumb war and a rash war," Keith Olbermann of MSNBC told The People's Cube outside a congressional office he visited to demand a government crackdown on dissidents. "Why must we in the field put our reputations on the line when this Congress has the power to simply confiscate Rupert Murdoch's assets and put Beck, Hannity, and Coulter in jail?" he demanded

    Olbermann was seconded by his colleague Chris Mathews, who said he had also enlisted to defend the progressive agenda against all enemies, foreign and domestic. For his part, Mathews carried a hand-written letter on behalf of his fellow journalists, accusing the Obama administration of "losing" the media war which the mainstream media had "won" for him in the run-up to last year's election when they toppled the regime of George W. Bush and the Republican majority in Congress.

    The war is also personal for the aging media veteran Dan Rather, who had won many media battles but one single failure brought him a dishonorable discharge. As a result he is now suffering from Post-Traumatic-Stress Disorder (PTSD), has become homeless, and lives somewhere under the Manhattan Bridge. "This war has put a lot of wear and tear on liberal commentators," Rather observes. "Their families are being broken up because they come back home with PTSD, STD, PMS, with drug and alcohol addictions, and afflicted by severe violent and suicidal tendencies."

    It is hardly a consolation that Rather is soon expected to be joined under the bridge by Rachel Maddow, Maureen Dowd, and Katie Couric, whose activist group "Boobs not Bombs" failed to distract Americans from watching Fox News by publicly flashing their breasts. The trio has been reportedly suffering from a host of psychological disorders ever since the polls revealed most Americans still preferred the sight of Bill O'Rilley's receding hairline.

    The mounting casualties are causing more Americans to question the President's reasons for starting the War on Fox and his conduct of it. It is now being revealed that Obama began planning the war within days of his taking office and months before launching the attack.

    "From the outset, there was a conviction Fox News was intractable and it needed to go," an unnamed White House source told the People's Cube. "The dangerous prospect of an informed voter loomed large in the Obama administration's plans of a pre-emptive strike. White House officials, in public and behind the scenes, made allegations depicting Fox News programming as less fair and balanced than it really was. But we never saw any evidence of it. Our reliance on mainstream media in this regard resulted in distorted intelligence."

    The fact that none of the administration's claims have panned out raises a troubling question: What was Obama's real reason for the attack?
    Doubts like these are causing slippage in support for the first in American history war waged by a U.S. President against a news organization."

    Aw, cut Slack some slack, Boonie...he's still smarting from my retort to his "no terrorist attacks on the US since Obama took office" (I paraphrase). Yep, it's still Bush's fault, right, Slack? Fox is laughing its a** off, coz ratings continue to climb, likely because people caught a sniff of this insidious attack that no networks are airing and immediately switched to Fox News to find out what is going on. Once at Fox, they realise what all the other networks are hiding about bambam and his thugs. They won't go back to the mainstream except to play "news" for their kids, like watching bears rescued from trees or turtles hatching eggs on a beach. 55555

    It's obviously a piss take out of the gullibility of the Blogamentalists, but most of them are too dumb to realise that and will take it literally...
    you did realise that of course Boon... right Boon?


    Brilliant that's going on favorites.

    I was in Pattaya over the weekend so I got my monthly dose of Fox. I used up and entire box of Kleenex crying over poor Fox News. Now they are playing the victim role to the hilt with an endless parade of their paid experts lamenting the horrible treatment they are getting from the Obama people. I will admit though, that they do throw in about 45 minutes worth of real news reporting in each 24 hour cycle so I guess that qualifies them for a seat at the dinner table.
