I do not think one really affects the other. People are able to differentiate between the two. Fox news is the best available but I still feel they hold back on what they will allow us to hear. I cannot handle watching/listening to the liberal stations, they are REALLY controlled as far as information matter/ spin on the news, etc. Fox allows the liberals to come on there and spew their lies so we have to sit through it if we can, but I guess they feel they have to do that to be fair. This is why there is so much division among citizens in the US, because of how and what the media reports. When people get DIFFERENT/WRONG information it makes it so they cannot make a proper assessment of the situation and obviously it will cause dissension between people.
