    Just follow the $$$$$$$$$$ and find the PROOF that Fox is nothing but a mouthpiece for the Republican party.

    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2010/08/fox-parent-news-corp-donates-1.html

    No amount of right-wing BS can hide what the $$$$$$$$$$ says about the right-wing bias of the Fox pro-right-wing propaganda channel.

    Fox has donated $1,066,200 to Republicans SO FAR this election year.

    Fox has donated $78,500 to the Democratic party this year.

    No amount of BS spin can change or sugarcoat the truth of those facts.

    Fox claims STILL to be "fair and balanced".

    FOX LIES.

    How much hate do you have?



    Where did I find the factual truth I posted?
    The truth is readily available to anyone who cares about it.

    But, you'll never find it watching Fox lies.

    And it's not about "hate".
    It's about LOVE of the truth.

    I find the whole issue of media groups donating to political groups counterproductive.

    However, all the major media are now owned by very large corporations... in the case of NBC, it's GE, so if the directors of the corp believe it is in the corp's interests to donate to particular political causes/parties, I suppose that's their right.

    What's also interesting is that Wall Street contributed far more to the Democrats over the past 3 or 4 years than they did to the Republicans... which is interesting in that the financial collapse happened under the Democrat's control of Congress, which is the entity that crafts legislation affecting... Wall Street.




    FYI - SB,
    the reason that Wall Street donated more to the Democrats is because Wall Street had lost faith in the Republican party's ability to effectively manage the economy, given their 20 year long track record of massive yearly budget deficits, exploding the National Debt, and causing the major recessions of Bush Sr and Bush Jr.

    Your claim that Congress "crafts" the legislation that affects Wall Street, is ignorant of the fact that the president can veto any legislation that crosses his desk that he doesn't agree with.
    Which is why BUSH is responsible for the 2007-2009 Bush recession that hit in 2007 - after Bush and a REPUBLICAN Congress had been in complete control from 2001-2007.

    You know that.
    You're just trying to rewrite history and spin the BS that Bush is not responsible for the Bush recession.

    Sorry, but the buck stops on the president's desk.
    Period.

    Yeah, right.
    It's not the truth that matters, eh?
    It's just the tone?

    And what about the tone on the Fox " we hate Obama" channel?

    GEEZ, WOULDN'T YOU THINK THAT THE MIGHTY REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT WOULD HAVE RODE IN ON HIS WHITE HORSE AND USED HIS VETO PEN TO RESCUE THE NATION ? THE FACT THAT HE DIDN'T, SOUNDS PRETTY UNAMERICAN, TO ME. SEDITIOUS ? TREASONOUS ?

    You're barking up the wrong tree!

    Fair and Balanced has nothing to do with one's contributions' to specific political parties. In the Case of Fox, Fair and Balanced refers strictly to their NEWS COVERAGE.

    There is an interesting discussion to be had about this topic.

    This is not it.

    No one seems actually interested in discussion. From the framing of the post to the response, the usual players are out with their foaming at the mouth fucktardery. Perhaps you boys could just do your LOLFOXSNOOZE or LOLLIBRULNIGGER shit on Daily Kos or Red State because it never goes well here.

    Posting an "I'm superior to you guys" kind of comment about how uninteresting you think the the discussion is - is in fact the lamest and least interesting comment anyone could make.

    The fact is that an "interesting conversation" cannot be had when the right-wingers won't even admit the facts of the story.

    An "interesting conversation" requires that all participants be aware of the facts first.

    So, for you to place an equal amount of blame on the progressives as the right-wingers is just false and phony.

    "Fair and Balance" is actually a trademarked tag line, which is the only reason Fox hasn't been sued for claiming to be same. While much the same could be said of MSNBC - though to a lesser degree - Fox is NOT a news channel. At best it's an opinion channel, at worst it's an arm of the Republican party.

    Rick,

    If you want to simply lay out the facts and have a discussion, please do. I am interested in having a good conversation about this issue because it is one of the most important issues in politics right now. But bitching and moaning that a right-wing news channel is right-wing isn't very constructive.
    Posting some facts and putting it in context to Citizens United V. FEC might yield a conversation. Lines like "No amount of right-wing BS can hide what the $$$$$$$$$$ says about the right-wing bias of the Fox pro-right-wing propaganda channel" is just bait for the usual players. It is tough to have civil conversation if we are uncivil right out of the gate.

    I think you have a point.
    I was trying to be an opposing viewpoint to SB, and I think mirroring the flamethrowing way he starts off threads may be counterproductive.
    I can counter the misinformation he posts without going all inflammatory.

    We'll see if that approach produces more posting and involvement - or less.

    I'm not sure.

    Eyeballs tend to be drawn to the dramatic.
    But, I'm willing to give it a try.

    I can only conclude that your views on 'what is a News Channel?' is strictly determined by your personal Biases, and not based on facts.

    The CBS, NBC, ABC News Programs have for many decades been very predominantly biased in favor of the Democrats and unfavorable toward Republicans. PBS has long been run by left wings liberals, and the same is true for National Public Radio. CNN was just another clone of the big 3 News Networks.

    Newspapers such as the Gannet chain and USA Today also have a strong liberal bent in favor of the Democrats and the liberal and socialists points of view.

    These media outlets have long been the mouth pieces for the Democrats and detractors of the Republicans.

    I lived with their blatant biases for decades. Finally there comes along FOX NEWS that refuses to follow in their steps of exalting liberalism, socialism, and democrats, while nary a good word for any Republicans except for the 2 or 3 that are as liberal as the democrats, and these few liberal Republicans got all their attention for interviews. How bias is that?

    In the 1980's I purposely tracked the newscast of CBS, NBC, and ABC, and the Gannet Newspapers chain, and they reported 3 positive comments for every one negative comment when covering a Democrat Candidate for office or political event. On the other hand, They posted 2 negative comments for every one positive comment for a Republican Candidate. And the positive comments for the Democrat Candidate tend to be more helpful at getting elected.

    Had these liberal news networks and papers actually had been fair and balanced, Fox News would never have had the success they have as the Nations # 1 News Network.

    FOX is indeed a media outlet for the US Republican Party. It exactly mirrors Republican taking points, and broadcasts them before they have even been announced through official Party channels. Talking heads like O'Reilly & Beck parrot the talking points as they are being spoken by Republican office holders. It's a beautifully orchestrated ballet, and clearly the result of coordination between FOX News and the Republican Party.

    I'm going to have to go with SouthBeach on this one. While I think it's clear that foxNews is biased, so are the more liberal media outlets that I follow. I wouldn't be surprised if MSNBC etc donated a higher dollar figure to Democrats.

    In the US is is perfectly legal for corporations to donate money to political campaigns. I don't agree with this practice, but it is legal. I think our nation would be a better place if this was not taking place, but no laws are being broken. In our system if you don't like a particular practice, vote with your dollars and or viewership.

    And do you want to know why?

    Because everything you wrote above is true.... and because you have only 17 posts here on RJ, so clearly you are an employee of Fox News, dispatched to RJ to recruit RJ members to become Fox News viewers.

    Such posts as yours are not welcome here in the liberal halls of RJ... please turn in your RJ membership card ASAP, as any further postings from you may in fact upset the liberal gays which forms the bulk of the RJ membership.



    LOL

    Thanks for reply.
