there is absolutely nothing wrong with a news organization that comes from a particular part of the ideological spectrum when it comes to how it reports the news, as long as that news organization is fully honest with the viewer about it. It is entirely different when a cable channel that is supposed to be impartial takes it upon itself to blindly advocate for and repeat lies to help a certain political party advance itself.
TYT claiming Fox is bias? That’s the pot calling the kettle black. TYT is the most bias show on you tube. It’s just for the left, rather than the right. So bias is okay, as long as it’s liberal? TYT is pointing the finger, but they got three fingers pointing back at them.
@splinner3 1. THEIR show. 2. Fox has many shows, not just one. 3. You are painfully and unquestionably uninfromed and BIASED towards making gutshot comments. 4. Penjrav is dead on with the exception of his/her disappointing generalization about Americans.
“pretend to be neutral so people take you more seriously” like TYT?
my point is that bias is unavoidable. The benefit to Fox news, and TYT, is that it presents the ‘other side of the coin’. Yes, Fox is biased, but so is ABC, CBS, etc. (The benefit of the Daily Show is their bias is towards what’s funny)
Instead of bashing group A for their opinions, why don’t you instead look at group B, group C, and form your own opinions? Oh, wait, Americans are too dumb to do that…
what you don’t understand is that news and opinion don’t go together. being a journalist myself (thankfully non-american), i can say that i don’t know of any other news station in the western world that is so biased and so determined to push a political agenda as fox news does.this isn’t journalism
despite having the freedom of speech,that doesn’t mean that you have the right to broadcast it. broadcasting licenses are supposed to be used for a greater good than just advertising a single opinion
Well, yes but… Fox news is extremely explicit in their bias and they have some “reporters” that are exceedingly acerbic and abrasive… and to call it “no spin” or “fair and balanced” is really adding insult to injury. It is sad, don’t you think, that The Daily Show on Comedy Central is a more credible source of news than anything Fox has to offer?
Yeah I have to also agree with a little bit of this. TYT is also opinionated. MSNBC, and FOX. But they don’t need to be stopped just labelled correctly.
So that people are not mislead.
News is a very powerful tool if it is misused. and there is a ton of misuse on Fox’s part as well as others. The only people who label themselves correctly is the Daily show which is not news and time after time says they are fake news.
So freak’n true. Indeed you should be able to say what ever you want, but when it comes to news. there needs to be a law or rule that you have to label yourselves what you are. The daily show (which isn’t real news) says they are fake all the time! All the time. Fox hiding behind their BS.
I completely agree with you on the fact that he is giving his opinion on Fox, and that all news stations give their opinion, he is wrong about it only being fox (although they are the boldest). He is also practically attacking them, just as he complains they do to so many others. Where I believe the difference is, is that he is attacking Fox in response to Fox attacking many others, whereas Fox just attacks whoever they hate. Eg. democrats like Obama
so if what u say is true, that fox news isnt really a news station bc they express their opinion, then you are not a news station. bc all you ever repot is your opinion. everybody in america has the right to express their opinion and a wise man once said ” Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter ones thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down.” – Frederick Douglass. so shut up about fox
