The people on the left attack the shows that are opinion shows on fox. They are never able to point to political views shown in the news stories. The suppression of reports that hurt the obama administration before the elections by cbs cnn. Fox news proved that they had not pressures her to write a false story. If people read the briefs that were prepared instead of relying on frauds that distorted the truth you would know it. Read the briefs of Jane Akier v fox news wtvt. If you read the facts, not the headlines then you would know what went on
Since Fox breaks many stories and has to uncover and develop each story ( Benghazi, Fast and Furious, NSA, VA, IRS,...) is is hard to be 100% accurate day one. If you held other news outlets to the same standard you would have to ding them for all the stories they knew of and did not report. Fox also has almost an even split between liberal and conservative commentators and they present both sides consistantly, so which side is not accurate?
Coverage of Obamacares little miscreant Gruber. The stupidity of the American voter!!!! I would love to say I rest my case but I need 26 more words. Funny how FOX covered it extensively yet others wouldn't touch it til they were called out for their bias. Just remember no news source is completely unbiased. Which is why your information should come from multiple sources and a good wallup of common sense.
It's been said that there are "lies, damn lies, and statistics." This survey, like the Liberals who love to beat up on Fox, is dubious at best. The fact that I am the ONLY person on this side of the page tells you everything that you need to know. That being said, there is a lot of the pot calling the kettle black on the opposite side of the page. As the LONE right-leaning voice on television, Fox presents the only dissenting opinion. When the Liberals of ALL the other networks gloss over or ignore stories that make the current administration look bad, one must ask who exactly is conducting the so-called "studies" that claim such overwhelming inaccuracies. Additionally, one must wonder why Fox is doing so much better than the other networks. I submit that the truth is that Fox more closely matches the thoughts of Americans while the other networks merely match whatever makes the current administration and Liberals look good.
Numerous studies have shown that FOX News viewers are the more misinformed than MSNBC viewers. In fact, studies show that FOX News viewers are more misinformed than numerous other news outlets including CNN and NPR among others. In one study, it was found that people who consumed no news were actually more informed than FOX News viewers.
MSNBC exaggeration of issues is annoying and their use of pundits who accuse based on belief and not fact is also irritating. That said Fox News pundits are laughable in their defense of the outrageous. Last week they had a guest claiming that recent demonstrators were all paid by an organization organized by Obama.
Trump has complained about tone from the media, while not noticing the hostility of Fox. I watched a Fox News blond screaming at the camera about holiday vs Christmas, apparently unaware holiday stands for holy days.
This happens over and over. Only recently did Fox and the conservative network get caught off guard. When Skype was used to submit questions from persons other than the main stream media, and the question was about logging national Forest and Skinner's answer was about using national resources for energy. Apparently unaware that the west has hydro power, we don't burn Natl. Forest for fuel any more.
I would credit Fox producers and Republicans of being better coordinated on message. While it was clear that the large number of R candidates was organized to keep the R message out front since ten people calling someone corrupt is more effective than one. Ds never got it and their media messengers didn't either. When the Rs want a line to be the message such as "look at the leaks", everyone is on message repeating the same line word for word, while the Ds don't have a team coordinator. What gets me is that not a single progressive media mentions this, only the Daily Show under its former leader seemed to notice and no one else picked it up. One has to wonder who the real Republican leader is, who paid for all the non profit paper work for the Tea-party, what threat or promise keeps every single Republican in line, even the one from Oregon. In the old days democrats wooed left leaning Republicans to register as Democrats by promising them funds and message protection during reelection efforts, but not now, why? Fox News and Congressional talking points run simultaneously. This can't be an accident. Not sure who is at the head of this, But Fox News is part and parcel of this effort, or the talking points would not be exactly the same. Who is really writing this stuff and how is it being disseminated, and is it carrot or stick keeping everyone in line?
FOX has one goal and that is to divide the country's liberals and conservatives. FOXnews isn't a news service it is a Conservative bloc corporation funded by Rubert Murdock to destroy liberal thinking. There have been numerous occassions where FOX has taken speeches by Obama and edited them to report. One of the most recent was the report on Obama's speech about Ferguson, MO where they stated that Obama was encouraging the militants to protest. The left out almost 1 minute and 3 paragraphs in which Obama stated that it is "... NEVER JUSTIFIED TO ATTACK POLICE" OFFICERS."
Fox won a lawsuit in Florida Appellate Court allowing them to specifically broadcast inaccurate information as entertainment and free speech rather than journalism. Since it is their legal view that the be allowed to report inaccurate news, I suspect that they would then intentionally do so. What other reason would exist for such a lawsuit?
Fox owners make it clear they only use conservative reporters.
They only use stooge "beat up dummies" for representing liberal views.
Every time I fact check a Fox story I find most are simply made up or half truths.
I subscribe to a you tube channel called 'Liberal Viewer Presents' and he takes apart news story after news story week after week and lays down the proof of their brand of what they call news.
At present time The Affordable Health care Law is constantly berated without facts and does not report the successes. Anything anti Obama whether true or not is their target. Especially noticeable is their Fox and Friends segments along with Hannity always playing loose with the facts with distortions and lies.
Fox News is shown by almost every independent study to be wildly inaccurate and many times to outright lie. They are consistently called out on Snopes and Politifact- the latter of which has given Fox more "Pants on Fire" ratings than any other news outlet.
Their viewers are shown to be more poorly informed than even viewers of comedy shows like "The Daily Show" and those who watch no news at all- a bad sign. How accurate can your reporting be if your viewers have no knowledge of the actual happenings?
I get that MSNBC tends to be left-leaning, but they save their opinions for the opinion shows. Fox News anchors and reporters regularly sneak their opinions into what it is they're saying, and there's a laundry list of misreported facts. You can find them on the Internet. Especially that segment on Anonymous that they did, totally incorrect. Often, they use the phrase "some people" "many think" to insert their opinions in.
