Is Fox News a propaganda arm of the Republican Party?

Asked by: progressivedem22
  • Oh absolutely they are!

    Fox news doesn't report news. They report "news" tailored to their needs to support the Republican party. Only things that meet the requirements of the Republican view. It is a classic example of the press framing issues. It is quite bothersome to think that the Fox Network would sink so low to blatantly harass the Democratic party. Some might argue that CNN does the same thing. This may be true but it is nowhere near what Fox does. Fox just uses current events and twists them to meet their needs of Republican advertising.

  • Obviously, MSNBC for left

    I agree with them on a lot of issues, but their support of Trump irritates me, as well as their ideas of gun control. I kind of agree on illegal immigration, why should all of the aliens be kept in USA... MSNBC does similar job on the left. Tucker, stop interrupting, especially if you loose a debate

  • Fox News is propaganda

    I sometimes switch from mainstream news networks like CNN to Fox News to see how they spin a story. Whenever I do this I often find they are not highlighting the same stories as all of the other networks, and it is like stepping into an alternate reality. It is one reason why so many FOX viewers are so poorly informed on many issues like the Russia Investigation. It is also a major reason they can be so easily manipulated by fake news, because Fox is a prolific purveyor of fake news. Just look at how FOX has created fake scandals like Uranium One and the disinformation contained in the Nunes memo.

  • Fox News Is Propaganda To Support Republicans

    I record all news shows on all networks daily and blast through reviews on each daily skipping commercials etc. Anyone with an IQ over 10 can figure this out. Watch Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, etc, etc - then go research the truth - through all news sources, government agencies, etc, etc. No brainer - total propaganda nonsense...

  • I have a greater than two digit IQ (personally, I'm Mensan like many liberals) and live in reality. Therefore, I can determine when Fox lies.

    Therefore, the answer is "obviously".

    The journalistic standards at Fox News are non-existent, and they use fake experts who hold no knowledge regarding the subjects they claim to represent. Their questions often start with a flawed premise- such as currently, their Chyrons call the current conservative government shutdown a "Democrat shutdown". This is a flat lie, and misleads their viewers into reinforcing false personal beliefs not backed by reality. It is not a matter of opinion, nor open to debate.

    There's no comparison to real news like CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, BBC or other such networks. Conservatives are slow, and therefore confuse opinion segments as "news" segments, which they are not.

    Fox journalism would not pass Journalism 101, even in a bad college.

  • In posting the Democratic Party in a bad light

    Fox will report that one Democrat stated in a Tweet or other Media a comment that is in fact deplorable and then insinuate therefore that this is how Democrats are. However, what other News outlet would make use of one comment from one GOP to show how the entire party behaves?
    The sad part is the Fox viewers pointing their finger and repeating how terrible those Democrats behave -- all due to the comments of one bad apple. This is an example of misleading the public.

  • Of course it is!

    What I've noticed is somehow people here want to believe there is ALWAYS 2 sides to an argument, and simply that isn't always the case. There are some issues that are plainly one sided.

    For instance Donald Trump has been a fraud enriching himself since the beginning of his career. That is is just a fact, there is no other side to that. There is no record of his community service or any type of selfless work to better his community. If there is I'd like to hear about it. However, if the only justification anyone has to offer for his behavior is that he is a "businessman," then that is just an insult to actual good businessmen who do contribute and give back to their communities without scamming the people. Being a businessman does not mandate or equate to one having to be a selfish ignorant moron. And that's just a fact.

  • FOX is FAKE News

    They continually spread conspiracy theories to defend a corrupt President of the United States. Unethical journalism almost across the board as they tout Trump lies as the truth. Actively attempting to damage the FBI and Judiciary, again to provide cover for a corrupt President of the United States. Let's face it, Fox News has always been the "news" arm of the Republican Party but they have deteriorated to spread pure unabashed propaganda and are actively engaged in corrupt "journalistic" practices.

  • Entreatinment, not news

    They went to court for the right to spew false statements, arguing they were an entreatinment network.
    The right to lie.
    Their viewers routinely score worse on news unowledge then non-news watchers.
    They use busy, bright graphcs and busy screens, and misleading chryons to peddle fear non-stop to the old, the white, the provincial, the rural, the isolaed and alone.

  • Propaganda, Hell No!

    Fox may lean right, yes but just because more people watch them, while liberals get all butthurt because Fox dominates cable news ratings doesn't mean its propaganda. One of their slogans is we report you decide, meaning they report news that is important and you get to decide your own opinion. Is all this clear now?

  • No, to only call Fox News a propaganda arm is blasphemous

    Like Viet said, any news source has it's own bias. While admittedly Fox News leans relatively far right, to only call them a propaganda arm is just plain wrong. As multiple posters has mentioned CNN, I'd like to talk about MSNBC and say that MSNBC has become just as bad if not a worse offender than Fox News. Furthermore, Fox News does try to obtain a more balanced view by hiring liberal analysts to debate on TV. That's what Juan Williams is for!

    In conclusion, to call Fox News a propaganda arm without looking at the other side basically shows that you have a decisively liberal mindset from the start.

  • No each news outlet has it's own pro-party bias

    Just as Fox News clearly has a pro-Republican bias and favors them implicitly all the time, other news outlets, like NY Times and sometimes CNN, have a liberal, pro-Democrat bias, esp. In opinions section on political/social/economic issues on NYT Thing is, Fox's bias and pro-Republican stance is overt and easy to detect, whereas other pro-Democrat outlets have their Democrat bias, rhetoric etc in a more nuanced, less aggressive, less blunt, and in a "so and so is a social cause" manner, which is less objectionable due to it's style than, say FoxNews' "Obama has done this/that".
