There's a 30% chance Glenn Beck, in response to this post, would accuse you of being a Nazi.

Fox News, and CNN and NBC to a lessor extent, are basically like those funny 1800s city papers, nowadays. When you go back in 1800s/early 1900s archives and read headlines like, "MAYOR HIDES ALLIGATOR IN MANSION, ADDICTED TO OPIUM?" in bold print headline.

The majority of US cable news is either light entertainment or talking heads. Opinionated talking heads have always had a certain bias, that's why they're there - to get you to agree strongly and watch them or disagree strongly and watch them to say, "What a fuckhead." That said they seem to be a bit more crazy these days.

The sad truth is that many Americans are more interested in the fact that Lindsay Lohan has to have a legal caretaker than President Obama continuing the ridiculous Bush-era executive priviledges or the Republicans mostly being top tax bracket-protecting twats.

I'm pretty liberal but I end up watching Fox News once in a while for entertainment, with any hard news I gleam being an occasional bonus. The sad thing is that many people are not capable of distinguishing Fox, or CNN or NBC as "entertainment" rather than un-biased news coverage. I suppose I can't blame them, though. If I had a right-wing world view, and I watched Fox News, I guess I'd think they were unbiased too.

At this point the only US televised source for news I'd put any faith in is PBS or C-SPAN. BBC, CBC, and Al Jazeera English all the way for me.

TL,DR

There have been many examples given over the years including this thread.


What about their bias, have you noticed that on more than one occasion when a Republican is caught in a sex scandal they place a (D) by their name? One would be a shameful accident maybe, but more than one and it's just lying.

But Dick Cheney is a robot, isn't he?



Fox News reported that Los Angeles is going to spend $1 billion on jetpacks that can fly a person up to 63 miles per hour and soar to heights of 8,000 feet.

But this is one head-in-the-clouds idea that would never get off the ground, not even in the City of Angels.

"We certainly haven't bought any jetpacks," police chief Charlie Beck told the LA Times. "We haven't bought [squad] cars for two years."

The hosts of "Fox and Friends," the network's morning show, missed a great opportunity to yell "makeup!" But they were mildly skeptical when first discussing the concept and retracted the report within an hour. They initially said that Los Angeles was ordering 10,000 jetpacks at a cost of $100,000 each. The Times notes that the city "is regularly sending its police detectives home because it can't pay all their overtime." There's no money for anything this over the top.

Where on earth could such an out-of-this-world report come from?

Gawker first noted that it probably came from a story in the Weekly World News. For those who haven't noticed the publication in supermarket checkout lines, their logo features Bat Boy and they've broken such exclusives as "Dick Cheney is a Robot," "Satan Captured by GIs in Iraq," and "Hillary Clinton Adopts Alien Baby."

Fox News Falls For Fake Story About Los Angeles Ordering 10,000 Jetpacks (Updated)

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace had an unexpectedly salty conversation with radio host Mike Gallagher on Friday, telling Gallagher that he knows how to "satisfy a woman" and suggesting that the host would hire an escort if he was "a man."

Wallace's first comment came after Gallagher said he hoped to have the "Fox News Sunday" host's wife as a guest when her book was released in the New Year. "This woman is a saint for putting up with you," he continued. "I gotta find out what the secret is."

"Maybe the secret is I know how to satisfy a woman. Has that ever occurred to you?" Wallace replied. He went on to say that "if I had my own pad and was a bachelor in New York, I wouldn't be lonely. It'd be party night."

A few minutes later, Wallace asked Gallagher why he was so "lonely" in New York, and told him to call one of the "advertisements for, like, gentleman's clubs and escort services."

"I'm not going to a gentleman's club," Gallagher said, "Are you crazy?"

"Because you're not a man," Wallace said.



Someone commented on him saying this so I looked it up. What a douche. He seems to think he's very desirable.
