Unfortunately a large percentage of their audience doesn't do that and takes everything spewed forth from Fox News as gospel truth.

Gospel truth? Isn't that an oxymoron like Fox News?

Check out my atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

I think it should be placed on Comedy Central after the Colbert Report

How do I feel about Fox?

I grew up in a small town, and we would all party at the same couple of houses on the weekends. The cops actually left us alone because for them, at least they knew where all of us kids were and they could keep an eye on us.

That's kind of how I feel about Fox News. I like having all of the conservative crazy in one place so I can keep an eye on it.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

~ Umberto Eco

I don't have TV. I listen to radio and look at internet news. I mostly listen to NPR and I get BBC on my phone. Drinking Beverage

Having said that... Fox News articles on the internet are often crap - in my opinion - they usually manage to fuck it up somehow. In a science article I was looking at once, they ended up making some ridiculous assumption and conflated the content with something completely irrelevant. It just made the rest of the article completely suspect. Wouldn't want to be that journalist. Drinking Beverage

Its difficult to distinguish between fox news and onion news.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Basically a joke.

They might get a couple of things right now and then, but otherwise, unintentional comedy.

Most news is like that, IMO.

RE: How do you feel about Fox news?
I think different news agencies appeal to varying groups of people for lots of reasons. Content being the main one, political, locality etc etc.

In the UK our equivalent of fox is The Daily Mail I think it appeals to those who do not put much thinking power into what they are told or what they would like to see, light entertainment more than a deeper involvement. Just like Fox News.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.
