But has anyone noticed? Or is it so obvious that everyone is, like, "yeah, and...?"

Fox News Admits Bias!

While it's kind of funny that the figleaf has been stripped away, I'm kind of "yeah and."

They know there's a political shift coming. Extremes cannot be maintained where commerce is king and conservatism is really getting ugly in the world, and people see it.

Perhaps Norville will be made into a hero, and Fox will roll with the punches once we elect Hillary (grin).

It still doesn't stop the burning flame of hatred when I drive by thier affiliate here in Kansas City though. I see them as a foreign power that has invaded our country.

Ever since ABC did a story on Rupert Murdoch about 7 years ago that pretty much exposed his attempts to rule the world. And?

But the sad fact is, ABC/Disney wants to do the same thing, so it was pretty much a case of the chickens coming home to roost in my opinion.

And despite the fact I'm using rabbit ears on my TV right now, FOX is still the #1 watched network in my house when American Idol is on.

What's wrong with this picture?

oops, had a brain fart there.

Meant to say that perhaps democrats will be made into hero's.

Norville can suck my ass.

Even though most liberals and some moderates have written off Fox News as being blatantly conservative, I would have to say that a large portion of the population might not have. That's the scary part in my eyes.

It's also interesting that in these days when journalism is being attacked as being too liberal and conservative, what ever happened to truly balanced reporting?

The better part about Fox News' "Fair and Balanced" claim to fame is the fact that instead of covering both sides fairly, they have decided to donate more funds to the democratic cause so technically, they can write off the observations that people see as questionably right leaning, for complete and utter filth. I mean, seriously, if they didn't give Santorum 1000 bucks, but they did Zell Miller, they can't be too right leaning can they?!?! It makes me sick.

Although Zell Miller is a Democrat he is very conservative. In fact, he spoke at the last Republican National Convention and he votes with the Republican Caucus much of the time in Congress. For all intents and purposes he might as well be a Republican.

Not too mntion that when he spoke at the RNC, he condemned JfKerry for voting against all the same military programs that Tricky Dick Cheney had loddied against as well. Zell Miller is what happens when you take the cetrist stance to the extreme. Oh wait, it's because he's so fucking old that he's the old southern democrat. He doesn't realize that those titles switched during the human rights prio to the 70's. LOL Damn Geriatric politicians.

Exactly. When I read or listen to news, I want to hear what, as near as can be determined, are the facts. I'll assign my own meaning and motives to them, thank you. And if I need guidance in doing so, that's what news analysts, commentators, and opinion columnists are for.
