Fox News` coverage of politics is like Discovery Channel`s coverage of cryptozoology.

Yeah. "News" has become nearly worthless since the networks decided that their news shows should generate income by selling commercial time like their TV shows, rather than create trust of the network in the populace through trustable news reporting, that then caused people to tune in to the network`s other shows, generating income through broadcast of those commercials. So news shows, essentially, have now become an entertainment so actually having something newsworthy to say has become, at best, a secondary consideration.

Treyvon Martin, As with Benghazi media kept at it making it a much bigger issue. Zimmerman was cleared by trial yet we here every time now he ends up getting stopped by the police etc he helps someone in a car crash etc

To be fair does a jury decided self defence story really needed that much coverage for an entire nation.

On the face of it no. Story was incident evidence wasn`t there, media makes a story forces it to trial, evidence didn`t go trial failed. The amount of coverage that got was biased in favour of a view in society of cops killing black guys. whether that is the case or not.

It is blind to you, that that didn`t even see anything but just the facts because it matches your outlook of the world.

I don`t watch US news being in Europe, so i`d have to go trawling to find it aswell.

Maybe they do. I can`t think of one. Although, as I said, I don`t watch them.

"HolyGod You`re a pretty liberal lefty guy, so when you see news you will tend to think it`s balanced when it kind of agrees with what you"

Sure. However, I`m not talking about Punditry. I`m talking about the straight reporting of world events. There shouldn`t be "balance" in that. It shouldn`t HAVE a viewpoint. It should just be the news.

However, when you decide things like the IRS or Benghazi "scandals" are major news events worthy of heavy coverage for months and months, there is a problem.

I read somewhere that in the 6 months after Benghazi, Fox News had 85% as many news segments about it as they did about September 11th in the 6 months following the attack. Now does ANYBODY think Benghazi is almost as newsworthy as September 11th?

Do CNN and MSNBC have similar examples of latching on and beating to death a relative non-story that nobody else is covering?

HolyGod You`re a pretty liberal lefty guy, so when you see news you will tend to think it`s balanced when it kind of agrees with what you see as the story. happens to everyone.

Also why something like the BBC gets attacked by lefties and righties in the UK. Even though a lot of academic studies usually come out with a bias against rightish(fav one was how there is a greater chance of being called a right wing think tank rather than a left wing, or calling sa socialist government right wing because it was authoritarian). But everyone feels it`s not impartial against their perceived impartiality index.


P.S It`s not called Birmingham anymore, just Birming they decided the ham wasn`t Sharia compliant

Agreed, trimble. These days it is all about what sort of circus from whom you prefer to get your inanity. The only difference between the majority of stations is what stories they chose to manufacture, what they chose to ignore, and what non-story they parade at any given thyme, but they all do it.

"Understood HG, but like I said from my perspective I see the exact same thing you describe on the others as well"

Perhaps. I`ve just never seen any other news network pick up and dwell on one relatively non-story way past its time while nobody else covers it quite to the degree Fox does it.

Understood HG, but like I said from my perspective I see the exact same thing you describe on the others as well, just a slightly different narrative. I don`t watch with a partisan bias so they are all the same to me.

"IF you believe CNN, MSNBC, BBC or any of the others keep you better "informed", well good luck with that."

I don`t have cable.

However when I did have cable I saw Fox News more than any other news station if for no other reason than it was between ESPN and Comedy Central and I`d occasionally pause out of car crash curiosity.

Punditry is punditry on any station. That`s for entertainment, engagement, and ratings. The problem with Fox is that the actual NEWS segments are biased by the fact that they only really focus on news reports that fit a narrative.

Every other station will be talking about something that happened that day and Fox is running a segment on Benghazi 8 months after the fact. Instead of reporting the news they try to create it.

Oh- side note, for over a year an American friend has been daring me to walk through a Sharia controlled area in a mini skirt swigging whiskey from the bottle. I have told him loads of times it is impossible- he thinks I am being a wimp- so it must be reasonably widely believed. one woman wouldn`t ride in Hyde Park because she saw too many Muslims and thought she would be killed- I think she is scared of brown skin.

The only sad thing is that twat Cameron nearly choked on his porridge, if it had actually seen him off it would have been worth it.

I don`t know HG, for a laugh I watch all the big "news" channels and one is just as wacky as the next. They are all about what their viewers want to hear. IF you believe CNN, MSNBC, BBC or any of the others keep you better "informed", well good luck with that.

"Team Fox News Defense...GO!"

People who defend Fox News tend to use info they got from Fox News to prove why Fox News is right.

Kind of like people use stories from the Bible to prove why the Bible is accurate.

Weird. Wonder if there is any overlay there....

Fair point, but they hire the "experts" they know will tell them what they want to hear.

If you get your information from Fox "News" this is pretty indicative of how misinformed you are on a whole.

For the record it`s about 22%, compared to about 5% for England as a whole.

The "Sharia police"? In 2013 there was a bit of a problem with some of Anjem Choudary`s fan-boys in hoods harassing people. Three of them are doing time.

This is the same Fox News "expert" who confidently announced that the Oklahoma City bombing was clearly the work of muslims.

I`m no fan of Fox News but I would blame this one on the so-called "expert" who, apparently, feels he can just say anything and have it accepted as factual. It may be that Fox should have known better but I don`t know that so I`ll reserve condemnation...for now, at least.
