Unbiased journalism is a myth. Just because Fox doesn't report the news according to your world view does not make them evil,
Al Jahzerra is pretty low on bias. It is one of THE best news sources. Less bias than the BBC and CNN. CNN is petty low on Bias, the BBC less so.
Australian ABC is very unbiased politically, but extremely biased nationalistically. It's priorities are: Australia first, then the rest of the English speaking world, then Europe then Asia, and very last is the former soviet bloc and and any Muslim countries. much like the BBC and CNN, except CNN is less biased against Muslim countries and the BBC loves India.

Let's not be silly about setting up a system of false equal biases here, it's stupid and dishonest. The fact is that the entire FOX network has generally poorer standards of journalism and an extremely distinct popularist right wing bent. Embarrassingly so.

And it's not so much a political ideology as a character trait designed to apeal to their demographic. It's how Murdoch works, how he has always worked. Fox News is NOT meant to be a good news station, that was never the intention. If you look to Fox to get good news you ARE a moron, and Murdoch would agree with that. The news arm of his network exists to make money and that's all. Money isn't a by-product of what they do, it's the ONLY objective.
It isn't news, it's a news-entertainment package.

A lot of news networks, but not all, are for-profit. But most are analogous to a shop that makes money by selling a decent, well made product. Fox would be a shop that sold shoddier and often fake versions of what the others were selling at supper low prices. It's like one of those crappy shops that infects a mall and drives all the good ones out of business, so that other crap shops take over and you're left with a choice of crap or crap.

If you want quality journalism that really does have an honest rightwing bent, you can find it out there, but Fox isn't it. Anyone thinking that something like CNN is some sort of leftwing opposite of Fox has lost the plot. The closest you get to a true counterpart is the Daily show. -_-

i'm sorry, but fox uses fear mongering tactics.
i remember when obama got elected and they acted like it was armaggedon, even had ominous music playing in the background.

they use misinformation causing lunatics to have shouting matches and vomiting the same dribble that fox airs (where do you think “death panels” and nazi/ socialism ideas come from) also people started to carry guns on the town hall meetings because fox scared them into thinking obama will take away all their guns.

stupidity like those help to hinder going forward….no wonder other countries such as canada, germany and the UK is starting to get out of a recession and the US is still in the red.

yay war, booo healthcare. why is it that they mandate you to have insurance for your car, and not personal health insurance.

for fuck's sake, fox even commented on the type of beer that obama should have served on his sit down with the professor and the policman. they said he should have advertise a beer that was US made. OMFG!

that's sad that in America, the person with more journalistic integrity is a comedian that has fake skits about rapping seniors =/

I was going to reply to this, but it's beating a dead horse. I'm just going to take out my trusty cavalry sidearm and put this poor beast out of its misery.

Not smart.
That bullet'd likely ricochet off of the engine block and injure you in the leg. -_-

It's a .45 slug. At that range it would go right through the engine block and into the ground. .45's were notorious for their penetration and stopping ability and recoil that at times would break an arm.

And no one ever claimed that cavalrymen (and for that matter tankers ) were smart. ;)
