Having watched Fox news i can see there is a market for this kind of entertainment, however that market is not the News market, they claim to be Unbiased and impartial like a news station should be, but they are so opinionated and judgmental it makes me laugh, they bring so called experts on to ask the questions and rip into them if the opinion or facts do not fit what they want them to say, Fox news are judge Jury and executioner in my opinion.
A news presenter or generalist is supposed to tell the facts as know and obtain a balanced article with equal weight and allow us to consider the facts, however Fox news feel it better to bypass the facts that don't agree with their own personal opinion or agenda, and save us the work required in forming our own opinion by telling us hat to think, they are in a position whereby they can influence people and boy do they use it.
I cannot believe people swallow this bullshit day after day without tuning out to find a real news station and find out what ids really going on in the real world.

    It comes from a biased perspective, but no more so than Katie Couric. People need to view multiple sources and weigh the evidence instead of trusting any one source.

    Fox News is an alternative to the rest of the stations who bow to George Soros. News is not reported today by ANY news station. Opinions are reported, fact skipped, and you know what? How many of you have seen on any news broadcast that the communist party endorsed Obama for president? I'd bet none. It's the dumbing down of America.

    All the news has gone this way. Either the news is presented in a liberal fashion or in a conservative way. To be fair to Fox during the day they have regular news reporting. The strongly opinionated shows like O'Reilly and Hannity are at night.

    I wish people thought FOX news was a joke. It most certainly is a redicuoulsly biased presentation of information. While at times they are so far out there they make me burst out laughing in disbelief, what frightens me is the number of people who perceive them as a legitimate news source.

    I dont know , somewhere in the 60's network news began to change to network entertainment and it just keeps getting worse , i really want hard fact news but feel i rarely get it and then somebody always has to come on and do another twist , I dont think folks today want this kind of entertainment newscasting . The issues that have faced the American citizen for the last 20 years are most serious, yet we get popoff and blowoff opinion making . When someone of importance and influence on a subject that matters to the American viewing public gets an interview , they get cutoff and silenced or shouted down by the Anchorman , When a person of importance speaks in an interview , I want to hear each and every word that person has to say even if i do not agree with the statements being made . Anyway I think you see how i feel about this and my desire to see straightforward , factual , hard core news return to the airwaves .

    Fox "news" is a joke, the evidence is overwhelming. Does any other news organization (or in the case of Fox, any organization claiming to be a news organization) promote political rallies on the air, the way Fox did last summer with its Tea Party rallies? Does any other news organization lie about the size of the crowd and show video clips from an earlier , larger rally to make it seem like the one they favor had a larger crowd than it did? And does any other news organization use video footage of violent union members at a strike in California to imply that union members in Wisconsin were unruly and violent? This is all standard fare for Fox "news" - they are a joke, and the people who watch and follow them are ignorant fools.

    The viewers of Fox News are academically documented by the University of Maryland as the most misinformed as opposed to the viewers of any other network.

    A few of my favorites:
    (click 'more" to see photos & vids)


    These poll results were reported exact opposite by Fox. The correct numbers were "Favor 33% - Oppose 61%"
    ============================

    "Obama bin Laden" - A reoccurring Fox "typo" that somehow is contagious since the error seems to occur through all Fox stations across the country.
    ============================

    This clip is a complete fabrication to make you believe Wisconsin protests are violent. Note the PALM TREES in the video clip. There are no palm trees in Madison.
    ============================

    Another false poll result. The 59% labeled as "somewhat likely" was really the total of "very likely" - Extra fun: Note that their poll results percentage total is 120% :\
    ============================

    Fox hits a new level of incompetence. While reporting on the 2012 candidates, Fox uses a photo of Tina Fey and labels it Sarah Palin. lololololol

    FOXNEWS was sued in FL for lying to the public. Their lawyers argued they had a right to lie to the public (FCC violation to a degree) and won the case.

    There no. 1 in market share is Bill O'Reilly. Mr. Ivy League grad interrupted the president 73 times in his Super Bowl interview making a fool of himself. He wrote an editorial in the NY Post defending FOXNEWS against a Rachel Maddow allegation of them preying on white fear of blacks, only to have her show clips of he himself doing it. He dropped the subject. By far the most moronic statement ever made by Bill was in a discussion with a panel of women on the hotel peeping Tom, he said, "We all know these animals will get away with it." This is shortly after paying off a staff member that sued him for sexual harassment.

    News reporters are as biased as the talking head opinionaters. Bret Baier's reply to a Dem. Rep. "I could choke you." and interrupting Megyn Kelly's "Alas, we lost CO." on election night is their idea of fair and balanced.

    I find the idiot talking head Hannity the biggest hypocrite. He did a 180 in his interview with John Bolton after giving accolades to Dubya's N. Korea policy. He interviews Palin saying how horrible it was for the media to attack her husband Todd, only to attack Michelle Obama fives minutes later.

    I used to watch Glenn Beck for laughs, rarely getting disappointed with ludicrous links and statements like throwing people under the rails. Michelle Malkin's "factories going overseas is good for America, it creates sales jobs." had me ROFLMAO.

    Murtha was more of a war hawk than most in the GOP. When the GOP wanted something done in the house requiring Dem help Murtha was the go to guy. Pelosi did 10 times more than Boehner in passing bills (38 to date, few GOP ideas passed the Senate). Perhaps some SH conservatives would do better in their posts doing research instead of silly "don't vote with their brains" statements and reposted propaganda, photo shopped pictures.
