Ofcourse it will be. It will also be filled with attractive women that probably don't have really in depth knowledge of the material that they are reporting on; all of which is designed to mask psuedo-news into "important" news. And no, I am not biased against Fox "News" ;) :lol:

I like Fox News. I think your analysis of Fox definitely shows a liberal bias.:lol:

Fox has the only real, non-liberally biased news on the airwaves. It's so nice, but unfortunate that there's only 1 place to go for real news.
DirecTV since 2001, NFLST, EI, and as of 2/8/07, new AU-9 with 2 HR20-700S (1 HDMI, 1 component/RCA), 6X8 multiswitch, and Samsung LNS3252D 32" LCD...eSata Seagate 750GB...12/30/07 new HR20-700S component connected to Phillips 42PFL5332D 42" LCD and HDMI to a little 20" Dynex LCD

There is no unbiased news. All news stories have an angle of one sort or another and that angle is to sell whatever medium that it is be it newspapers or viewership of a channel for sponsors.

That is correct. It is all slanted to one side or the other, however Fox News seems to be the most "balanced" i think i should come up with a slogan for them...

This is general programming news and as such, it should have been
posted in the "Standard Definition Programming & TV Talk" forum.

I loathe NBC. I hope FOX kicks CNBC's fanny.

Sorry about posting this in the wrong spot!

I'm anxious to see Fox Business Channel. If "biased" means telling the good economic news when it's all around us, bring on the BIAS. :)

I don't know that I would call it "balanced". The one thing that cost all credibility with me was when former congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) was caught with this whole issue some of the former congressional aides. After three times of showing him as a Democrat, I thought that was pretty bad. I guess that's what's known as "balanced" -- call a person from one party as a member of the other party. That way you cover both parties. :lol:

As far as a slogan, maybe "Fox. We just report the news -- just certain parts of it."

Both sides have some issues and I won't make this a political statement because it's not. What happens many times is that if the media prints or broadcasts something, people from either side will say that it's slanted because it doesn't agree with their views. Most of the time the actual news being broadcast is true and not as slanted as people would like to believe. We'd always like the media to show people the favorable side and not the negative. Do they always show both sides? Certainly not always.

But the situation above? That's not slanting the news. That's flat out lying.

Send the rest of us some. Most of us IT guys who didn't have their jobs outsourced and didn't have to change careers are still making less money than we made six years ago.
