Although we majority of watchers do know MSNBC is the more liberal while Fox is more conservative MSNBC does and has more real journalist while Fox has more opinion and political staffers. This makes a big difference as to how the news is reported if you go down the list and compare those working in Fox and those working in MSNBC you can see the difference. While Fox has every right to program whatever they want within FCC Regulations they don't have the right to mislead people and therefore should not be called a News Station and they should inform their viewers ahead of time as to their programming. As someone who's parents fled Communism Cuba and had family members jailed under Castro regime when the misleading news is reported with the intention of creating division and some cases even creating so much automaticity that it is even creating violence. Dictators and Fascism begin with the distortion of reality and if enough believe it, it can be the beginning of a Civil War. When Our Founding Fathers Chose to put Freedom of Speech and the Press as our First Constitutional Right it was for a very obvious reason. If people would read and understand history they will see how Certain Extreme Controlling Governments come into power and Fox News understands this very well.
The Supreme Court has carved out exceptions to First Amendment protections for speech that threatens someone with violence, incites listeners to take illegal action, or is harmful in certain other ways. -
I have seen this in spades with Fox news. They are a public hazard, much the same as yelling Fire in a crowded movie theater.
Fox News should not be considered a News Station. Under our freedoms, Fox should consider however not as a News Station. Fox does have outstanding Journalists such as Shepard Smith and Chris Wallace but those are very few. There are more commentators and yes it is State TV. And the fact that people don't read or try read or get informed and have just become tribal this is how Dictators and Fascism come to be... Not to mention that I come from a Cuban American Family I came to this Country when I was 3 years old...
In a democracy we depend on the Press Press to provide us with the facts. Fox spins the truth into lies that support the trecherous elements of our government--those who are willing to sell us our to a hostile foreign power, i.e. Russia. We cannot afford to allow FOX to convey dysinformation and lies any longer. We are on the verge of a constittutional crisis and only the Free Press behaving as it was intended to behave, can save us.
It has gone on for years, but now Fox News and the Trumpers are out of hand. They are supporting a criminal, authoritarian regime and slandering good men and women and our most valued American Law Enforcement organizations in the process. This is absolutely unacceptable and the kind of thing that happens in fascist dictatorships.
Free speech does not license you to spread slander and hatred on air daily. I’ve personally seen too many times what I personally believe to be the sheer stupidity and vitriol of Fox News, whether or not it’s Laura Ingraham telling LeBron to “shut up and dribble,” the morons on Fox and Friends questioning Obama’s birthplace, and moreover Sean Hannity idiotically trying to push forward the claim he could have stopped the Las Vegas shooter hundreds of feet up from the ground if he were at the shooting and had a gun. There is no logic behind Fox News aside from the logic that it is a mouthpiece of the Republican Party, and it vigorous attempts at disinformation and slander actively harm our democracy. Fox News is completely anti-intellectual and anti-factual, and there is no comparable cable news network.
People always tell me MSNBC is left-biased, and frankly, to some point I agree. But at the same time, some people try to foolishly make a false equivalency between Fox and other networks like MSNBC and CNN, when really, there is no parallel. MSNBC and CNN always depend on reiable, well-sourced, and factual information while most things on Fox could probably pass for InfoWars and Breitbart because for the most part it has zero basis in reality. A network that brainwashes viewers into thinking Democrats are Satan’s minions because Obama wore a tan suit one time does not deserve the right to spread “information.”
Please let it go the kids did nothing wrong but die to young. Please it's the money all about the money not the lives of our kids , you don't even care about them you just want to trash them. Hey fox news leave them kids alone. You are the only news station to trash our kids. HEY FOX NEWS LEAVE THEM KIDS ALONE.
You people are sick it's all about the NRA with you and if there money would run out you would be gone. It's all about money money money, FOXS News is all about money because that's what donald trump is about . You don't care about all the kids who poured there hearts out to the world. Not one bit I see it and the world can see you for what you are money hungry.
If opinions and falsified information is put out as news, it should be treated like slander and subject to lawsuit.
It is sad that we need this kind of protection from the media, but at this point we've gone beyond what is reasonable. Just like other news organizations should be subject to peer-reviewed accuracy, there is a point where you've gone beyond skewing your coverage to just making things up. And Fox has reached that point.
It is not news. It is not a news organization. Therefore it needs to be labeled as such, because people have proven they can't discern the difference correctly.
Fox is the reason for the divide in this country. First of all, they air propaganda and are using brainwashing techniques. Second of all, if you're still voting for criminal Republicans, you need a mental health evaluation. Republican administrations have been much more criminally corrupt over the last 50 plus years than the Democrats! When comparing criminal indictments of those serving in the executive branch of presidential administrations, it’s so lopsided as to be ridiculous. Yet all I ever hear about is how supposedly “corrupt” the Democrats are. So why don’t we break it down by president and the numbers?
Obama (D) – 8 yrs in office. Zero criminal indictments, zero convictions and zero prison sentences. So the next time somebody describes the Obama administration as “scandal free” they aren’t speaking wishfully, they’re simply telling the truth.
Bush, George W. (R) – 8 yrs in office. 16 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 9 prison sentences.
Clinton (D) – 8 yrs in office. 2 criminal indictments. One conviction. One prison sentence. That’s right nearly 8 yrs of investigations. Tens of millions spent and 30 yrs of claiming them the most corrupt ever and there was exactly one person convicted of a crime.
Bush, George H. W. (R) – 4 yrs in office. One indictment. One conviction. One prison sentence.
Reagan (R) – 8 yrs in office. 26 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 8 prison sentences.
Carter (D) – 4 yrs in office. One indictment. Zero convictions and zero prison sentences.
Ford (R) – 4 yrs in office. One indictment and one conviction. One prison sentence.
Nixon (R) – 6 yrs in office. 76 criminal indictments. 55 convictions. 15 prison sentences.
Johnson (D) – 5 yrs in office. Zero indictments. Zero convictions. Zero prison sentences.
In the last 53 years, Democrats have been in the Oval Office for 25 of those years, while Republicans held it for 28. In their 25 yrs in office Democrats had a total of
three executive branch officials indicted with one conviction and one prison sentence. That’s one whole executive branch official convicted of a crime in two and a half decades of Democrat leadership.
In the 28 yrs that Republicans have held office over the last 53 yrs they have had a total of 120 criminal indictments of executive branch officials. 89 criminal
convictions and 34 prison sentences handed down. That’s more prison sentences than years in office since 1968 for Republicans. If you want to count articles of impeachment as indictments (they aren’t really but we can count them as an action), both sides get one more. However, Clinton wasn’t found guilty while Nixon resigned and was pardoned by Ford (and a pardon carries with it a legal admission of guilt on the part of the pardoned). So those only serve to make Republicans look even worse.
So let’s just go over the numbers one more time, shall we? 120 indictments for Republicans. 89 convictions, and 34 prison sentences. Those aren’t “feelings” or “alternative facts.”
No, I do not believe Fox News should be shut down. We have a thing in this country called freedom of the press. That enables these companies to report the news how they see fit. We as citizens are also able to decide for ourselves what news mediums we want to watch, and overwhelmingly Americans choose Fox News, as evidenced by its ratings.
Because we as a nation believe in the freedom of choice and the freedom to say what we want, there is no reason why Fox News should be shut down. If you don't like the content that they are putting out, then stop watching them. If enough people do, they'll go away.
You all want Fox News shut down is because you people favor left wing thinking. Since most of the media caters to the Left, it's bothersome for Liberals that there is a station that exposes the flaws of the Democratic Party. If you want to lie to yourself and say that MSNBC and even CNN are neutral reporting stations... I hate to break it to you but no such news agency exist, none with any success anyway.
I admit that Fox News does have an overwhelming Conservative Bias, but so does every other News channel. You can't call something Biased, because every single human being on the planet is biased in some form or another!
Fox News is merely presenting it's Conservative view to the public just as MSNBC shows its liberal views.
If you don't like the network than simply don't watch it and find one you do like.
For once I can honestly say that the answer to the problems is to cherry pick.
Thanks for listening and God bless!
FOX NEWS is the only news we receive that is fair and balanced. If FOX leaves what do we have? News as reported by CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC is skewed to the left. Has been for many years. FOX has the guts to report news from another perspective. There are always two (or sometimes more) sides to any story. The First Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees citizens and the press the right to speak freely without retribution. The Citizens should not be coerced into return to a tyrannical society or governmental system.
I'm probably one of the most liberal people in the United States, and I don't think that Fox News should be shut down. It has many viewers that tune in to it every day, and even if I may disagree with their viewpoints, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Therefore, they should be allowed to use the channel to voice theirs.
Liberals tend to hear what they want to hear and conservatives tend to hear what they want to hear. We have to have a free press and freedom of speech. Otherwise we will be susceptible to propaganda and being fed only what the power brokers feed us. It is frustrating to me (and I'm sure many others) because all I want is the unvarnished truth with minimal or no bias. I want Mr. Spock. Its impossible to find this any longer. Integrity is sadly lacking on both sides of the aisle.
If you shut down one news outlet because you do not agree with their
opinon, then you have o shut down ABC, CBS, NSB, MSNBC and CNN because I do not agree with their opinion... Otherwise you have created sensor ship and if you can sensor one news outlet, then we can sensor one also... Which of course would not be acceptable to you... Correct?
They report just as any other news source. For the people that don't like the hosts they give many opinions just as CNN and NBC. If you want a leftist paradise please leave the country. Beacause here we need balance of left and right. Thank you have a nice day.
You clowns say that you are for freedom of speech, but the moment somebody says something you don't agree with you want to call them down and assert that they are hateful just because their opinion is different then yours. Move to North Korea where socialism is the rule of the land and you can only make statements that agree with your government. You guys would have been shut down by your own line of thinking when slavery was the way in the USA. Luckily Republicans shut that down.
