If you have a society that is polarised politically, as the US is seemingly and increasingly so but other countries like Belgium too, the media will pamper to their target audience. I can`t see why they wouldn`t do this? It just makes sense and is inevitable.

The second link is just plain ridiculous. There is a difference between comentary and news. John Stewert is comedy, so the whole segement must be comedy according to Jon Stewerts own logic and therefore invalid to make a point.

When trying to make a point that they are allowed to lie, using Jane Akre is not going to do it. The case of Jane Akre against WTVT is not about honesty, it was about percieved retaliation against a news story. Fox later won in appeals.

Jane got fired from a few jobs, lost the one at Fox and hasn`t been picked up anywhere. That should tell you a bit about her talent

I hear the tired old "every news network lies and is biased" claim all the time, but it`s almost never backed up by anything. I take the BBC as a prime example, which has so many newspapers and watchdogs watching it`s every move that a single misplaced claim would be called out and corrected. There has never been a claim of the BBC lying about anything, and claims of Bias rarely hold up under scrutiny.

I give up on this sh*t all together. Im so sick of politics, this whole bash Fox news constantly thing is getting retarded. If you dont agree with what they say then do what i do, turn the f*cking channel. The only news that at least seems unbiased is the damn local news.

I disagree. I think that as long as any network is upfront about it`s bias, people can filter as they see fit. My only complaint is when they pretend to have no bias.

The big problem is that the right and the left are diametrically opposed, politically as well as philosophically. The right solution for one is absolutely the worst solution for the other. I don`t think compromises will work very often. It`s like a family where half want to live on a beach in Virginia and the other half want to live on a beach in California. If they compromise and live in Kansas City, no one will live by a beach.

I`m not so sure, in my experience this level of polarization in news (in the western world) is purely an American phenomenon. You have networks like MSNBC on one side, Fox on the other. Surely a news network should have no bias one way or the other, they should report the facts impartially. Like the BBC at least strives to do.

This polarization of society, "Fox vs MSNBC", "conservative vs liberal", "right vs left", I assure you, can only be detrimental to society itself. People need to stop pigeonholing themselfs into shades of black and white, it boils down to "us vs them". Society is a spectrum, and a healthy society works best when all sides are respected part of the process.

Otherwise, you get a left-wing extreme win (communism), or a right-wing extreme win (nazism). Neither of which is a win.

I hate Fox News as much as the next guy, but I have to take issue with your second example (the on about being allowed to lie), if only to defend our judicial system. That case is always brought up in any discussion about fox news, but it`s highly misinterpreted.

The case was about an FCC regulation (which Fox News can still get fined for) that says news media can`t fabricate stories. One of the journalists for fox claimed that they lied in one of their stories, and was fired in the process of reporting them. He filed suit, saying they broke whistle blowing laws, when in reality whistle blowing laws only apply to illegal activity, not breaking regulations.

Any news station would have taken the same defense as fox. Why would fox go through the trouble of trying to prove they didn`t lie in their story when they can just point out that no laws were broken either way?

Along with what Baalthazaq said I will also add that people who watch Fox are consistently more misinformed about basic facts than people who watch pretty much anything else. Here

"fox news is more balanced than any other news channel."

It was directly made as a counter to a perceived leftwing bias. It is intentionally biased. Their defences thus far have been:

It`s not real news it`s opinion.
We`re allowed to lie.
Accusing others.
Etc.

Even it does not claim the level of fair and balance you seem to be implying with your statement.

Ok, for the photoshop thing: Here`s the video of the segment.

So, even though Cobra wasn`t saying it; I am.
Not a shop.

fox news is more balanced than any other news channel. sure theyre more republican leaning but thats just to the right of the political independent.

And msnbc is the most liberal leftwing democratic horsepoo if ever seen. so i dont know what youre talking about.

The TV lines on the pic of `Palin` don`t match up with the lack of lines anywhere else on the screen.

Looks like an obvious sign to me, cobra.

On the contrary. Smart people don`t care because they don`t consider this a valid source of news.

crakr, im wasnt saying it wasnt a shop, i was saying that it was ridiculous for him to say that it was an obvious shop. when you look at it there are no signs about it that it is obviously a shop. it is just as likely that somebody messed up (or did it on purpose) as it being a photoshopped picture.

cobra: It`s rather easy to match angles in photoshop with the free transform tool. I`ve made quite a few photoshop transformations, lots of tutorials on how to do it on youtube.

AJ, you aren`t keeping up with the spin. Other sites are claiming that this is the obvious work of some closet libtard at Fox news who should be fired immediately. I know you have a natural desire to defend Fox but check in to see what story they are putting out there first.

auburn, really, how obvious of a shop is this? it looks pretty legitimate to me. if its a shop then it is a damn good one. the angle of the photo matches the angle of the television image, the quality is the same throughout the television image including that particular part.

why is it that you cant just believe for one second that somebody at fox f*cked up for one brief moment? are you telling me its not possible?

They were saying Tina Fey`s impression of Palin has made Palin a caricature of herself and that if she chose to run it would sully her chances of being a viable candidate.

Funny image, funnier still that people think it`s an actuality.

A split-second in time captured from a media form that is constantly changing images has dazzled you for the amount of time it represents.
