fox news and clear channel in bed together? never would've thunk it...

Mon Dec 6,11:34 AM ET
SAN ANTONIO - Clear Channel Communications Inc., the nation's largest radio station operator, has picked Fox News Radio to be the primary source of national news for most of its news and talk stations, officials announced Monday.

The five-year agreement initially covers more than 100 radio stations.

Fox will provide a five-minute top-of-the-hour newscast, a nightly news broadcast, and around-the-clock dedicated national news coverage. In return, Fox News Radio will have access to news produced by San Antonio-based Clear Channel's news network.

can't wait until they all get together and burn Dixie Chicks CDs and Shep Smith covers the event.

this is actually very, very terrifying. we are watching those on top slowly but surely consolidate their power -- we're not a dictatorship but we are turning into an oligarcy.

While I laughed my arse off during the Simpsons when the Fox News truck had a huge Bush/Cheney 2004 logo on it, I don't single out Fox News and Clear Channel for having bias. I think New York Times leans pretty far left.

while i probably don't agree with you labeling the new york times "far left," they do tend to have a more liberal outlook.

fox news will be fair and balanced when pigs fly out of my buttocks.

Okay, maybe not "far left" but left leaning would be a more fair way to put it.

Is that the same episode where the Simpsons had their version of Fox News and on the crawl at the bottom it was saying stuff like "Do Democrats cause cancer?" and stuff like that. HILARIOUS.

Krusty for Kongres

In all seriousness political contributions from Fox employees was significantly more for the DNC than GOP. All this whining about it being the most slanted station in the history of mankind, that it is controlled by the Republicans etc. is most likely attributed to the fact that it not the same as all the other major stations and it is actually growing. What other station would run a program like Eurabia? It fills a niche and I think that that can only be a good thing, having a media that is for all intensive purposes monolithic is a very bad thing.

Do we have anything to back this up? And I'm not even sure if this would really mean anything, where are the CEOs leanings would really be the question to ask.

Oh please. Where did you hear this? Probably on Fox, right? *LOL* This is exactly the problem with Fox. They constantly spew embarrassingly misleading, dubious and sometimes even manipulative information. So when you hear this statistic again, please do me a favor and ask what constitutes "Fox employee"? Is it just those employed at the Fox News Channel in New York? Or is it Fox Broadcasting Company, which has about 200 affiliates across the globe. Does it include all the employees at 20th Century Fox in Hollywood and Fox Searchlight Pictures, the New York Post and about 200 other print publications around the globe which are owned by Fox? And then, does it include just the employees who influence policy? Or does it mean the janitors, the researchers, the copy editors, the production artists, the web developers, the drivers, the best boys, gaffers and key grips?

All I care about is who Roger Ailes supports. And we all know the answer to that.

It was on a third party site extrapolating from that database that showed political contributions from - to be more specific - fox news employees. In any case the network does have a particular slant in its reporting but considering the spectacular failures of some of the established media organisations recently accusations against Fox and only against Fox of bias and sloppy journalism seem a little bit myopic.

NY Times is blatantly left-leaning, but they don't get half the flack that Fox gets for being more favorable to the right than other establishments, or as they say, "The mouthpiece for the White House....."

Does Fox lean somewhat right in a lot of their OP-ED PIECES? Sure....but they always present an opposing view. However, I dont' believe they have a right-wing view on their news reporting, I think it's accurate. Even Jon Stewart said so, and he's not exactly a staunch conservative, is he?
