Default Fox News = Joke...

If you want a good laugh watch Fox News network. They've become a joke to me concerning the issues that are faced with our great nation. They had some guy named Colmes on there not long ago and he really made himself look very bad when he tried to take up for Obama's policies, L.O.L. The reason I call them a joke is because they claim to be "fair and balanced". What a joke that statement is. If that were the case then I'm the incredible hulk. I still watch it though because it gives me a laugh and it also tells me where I can start to look for answers myself that are truly unbiased.What do you guys think about Fox News network?

I feel that all news networks are slanted. Most are to the left. Some are more than others.
I think that Fox is the least slanted of them all.
But this is all imo.

They do all the time. The writer of Family Guy is very liberal as can be seen by anything political mentioned on Family Guy or American Dad.

Fair and balanced is probably an over statement. However, when you consider that most of the other major news networks are quite left leaning, one quite right leaning network does balance things out a bit.

If you think Fox News Network is a joke, then you're not comprehending what you are watching and simply want to focus on your own personal political agendas. There is news and then there is news commentary. Their news is perfectly fair and balanced. Their commentary is obviously right leaning. This is no different than any other network. CNN reports news. And CNN has commentators that are very left leaning. Are they a joke too? Of course not because they are in line with your own agendas.

I personally don't give a shit about politics. Both sides have their good and bad ideas in my opinion. So I don't care what news program I'm watching because I'm capable of thinking for myself.

Even in reporting the news it can be slanted one way or the other just by the words used. The inflection of the voice used by the person reading it. Whether intentional or not a bias can come through.

Where I live we have 2 major newspapers. One is Left leaning, and the other Right.
You can read a news story in each about the same political news event and come away with 2 different conclusions.
