    Because unlike "Occupy Wallstreet", the Tea Party can hold protests without throwing urine on the media and smearing feces on cop cars.

    Clearly don't have not awaken to the revelation that there are corporate controlled media for at least the past 20 years.

    Six Media Conglomerates of Today

    Because of Reagan's deregulation that effectively removed governmental barriers in radio, TV, etc., that allowed for the commercial exploitation of media. Motivation for media firms to merge includes increased profit-margins, reduced risk and maintaining a competitive edge. In contrast to this, those who support deregulation have argued that cultural trade barriers and regulations harm consumers and domestic support in the form of subsidies hinders countries to develop their own strong media .

    When you consider that stations such as CNN and Fox News are receiving millions and millions of dollars of corporate advertising revenue yet failing to expand, the reality of the continual mass awakening that we now find ourselves in becomes much clearer.

    Actually a stupid question.

    Some segments are news some are commentary.

    For the most part they all keep it relatively fair and balanced...

    Here's some information for you. Me thinks you should follow your own advice!

    "After first poking fun at both Mitt Romney (“That guy just makes it way too [bleeping] easy.”) and Rick Santorum, Stewart shared that, on February 10th, the RNC sent out a document emphasizing how to, as Stewart put it, “mitigate any damage that may be occurring from the improved economy.” It advised pundits to focus on national debt, unemployment and rising gas prices. He placed special emphasis on Gretchen Carlson asking — twice — why “no one” was talking about the rise in prices at the pump. He also showed that Carlson’s co-host, Steve Doocy, actually read from the document on Fox & Friends, thus revealing how the game is played while playing it."

    You know, years ago, the news was just that...the news. They gave the facts not colored by their own opinions. That's why the greats of broadcast journalism like Walter Cronkite, Huntley and Brinkley, Mike Wallace and others have never been matched.

    Particularly the first three. Mike Wallace leaned left, however, and was not above coloring his tough questions with his own opinions. I think the biggest major change from just-the-facts news to today's advocacy and opinions began with Rather's "it's not the nature of the evidence, but the seriousness of the charge."

    You're right. Wallace was left leaning but I, like you, feel that he did ask tough questions. Can you think of any news broadcasts that are not slanted in some way or another?

    Their news reports, not commentary-based shows, are exactly what they claim to be - cutting edge news.

    Commentary show will always be just what they claim to be - a show that highlights a particular celebrity and/or politician's comments on what is happening in the world today. They do not attempt to mask their subject matter as breaking news, and do not deserve the flack that receive by those who claim that they do.

    The hard news is news.
    The commentary is commentary.
    What sets Fox News apart is their is a hard line between the two.
    With most everyone else in the business, it is all mixed together,
    and sometimes even intertwined.

    It's actually both. And the commentary isn't so much conservative as it is middle of the road. I do find it interesting though how Fox News get's the left wing's lederhosen in a wad. They can't take it that technology and the most popular news network is offering other options to the outdated liberal news monopoly. They can't take it.

    I think even calling Fox "commentary" is a bit of a stretch. They are a propaganda network which exists for the primary and deliberate purpose of disseminating misinformation and utter lies in an attempt to blind the low information voters in this country to reality. Fox was created in the first place in order to avoid campaign finance restrictions and create a 24 hour a day attack network against President Clinton. And sadly, they're successful. Survey after survey shows that regular Fox viewers are the most misinformed segment of the population. That's why there are still morons out there who question where the President was born, or what his religious faith is, or who think handing a trillion dollars to the richest Americans creates jobs, or who honestly believe that every person in this country who receives public assistance is (a) black and (b) poor by choice.

    what you say about fox news can also be said of abc, nbc cbs who walk in lock step with liberals.
    if you check rating you would see that more people watch fox than any other stations.
    now why would you suppose that is??
    fact is fox does not attack anyone they present a fair, objective , no spin news unlike those other stations using white house talking point word for word, check facts? why bother checking facts just run with the white house tells them.

    More people watch Fox "News" because the ill-informed do not want to deal with points of view that do not meet their narrow world view. This is a sad commentary on the American people. BTW, I watch Fox so I can speak of their product with knowledge of it.

    That's bullsh*t. With the exception of MSNBC most of the other main media has been leaning further and further to the right for years. The difference between Fox and every other station, though, is that while they all get things wrong at times, and they all express their opinions, biased or not, Fox is the only source that DELIBERATELY presents false information, that INTENTIONALLY broadcasts information they know to be untrue, and that NEVER corrects their errors. They present one side and only one side of any story, and although they pretend to allow people to express contrary views, they invariably shout them down, never let them get to the end of a sentence, and never acknowledge even the possibility that there are two sides to the story.

    And again, ratings are meaningless. Quality and quantity are two different things. Spongebob Squarepants gets higher ratings than a symphony orchestra, but I don't think many people would say it has superior quality.

    I like some of their programming, but not all. I have no patience for Chris Matthews, though I think Rachel Maddow is probably the single most intelligent person in American broadcasting. I also try to catch Joe Scarborough regularly, since I think it's important to hear more than one point of view.
