I have never seen anything be quite so un-biased and treated(by the mediator\reporter) as lightly as it should yet respectful to both parties (although she makes a great joke at the end) are you sure this was Fox???? its so tasteful and funny...very unlike them...

@hatface
No prob on the double (I think IAB likes it when we post double/triple and more).
One of the problems with posting sarcasm is that it is really hard to read sarcasm... but the big word bit was a joke (for this video at least... I have heard them "try" to use big words)
But back to my point - I did not pick up the feeling that the two guests agreed with each other. But that's probably because they didn't :)
While the only non-USA news I can only comment on is BBC world news (when I catch it), I can comment the 24 hour news channels in the states. I think some are comparing Fox News to the News programs (the 5 or 6 o'clock News program). With that comparison, yes the hosts of Fox News do present their opinions more than the newscasters. However, please notice one calls the people on Fox News (and MSNBC and so forth) "Hosts" and the people on your daily news (5 or 6 o'clock) newscasters. So, long post but do you see where I'm coming from?

Now wait,,, Doritos are bad, though the virgin mary shows up on a grilled cheese sandwich, and jesus in corn flakes, m&m's and the inside of a kit kat bar...

Catholics have it all wrong, God loves junk food.

@Desert easy

(soz for the double post)
I think Trojan made a good point. In terms of argument and discussion, they really didn't go into any depth. You could well argue they certainly shared a large proportion of their opinions, and the presenter was very biased.

Also, Fox news does not use big words.

I'm a Catholic and I wasn't offended. It's just a joke. Watch Father Ted if you want to see us really get mocked. 100% lolz

As a christian and a ration human being I am offended by Lars insinuating that the commercial teaches that Doritos and Pepsi is the body and blood of JC.
Lars seems to have forgotten that communion is supposed to be done in rememberance of Jesus, not to actually be his flesh and blood.
By the way, why is someone who obviously views himself as a devout christian doing a TV show like this one instead of helping the poor and helpless? That would be a lot more in the spirit of Christ.

Where do they find these people? God, it's like 3 friends talking without realising they're on TV. "Oh my boyfriends dad invented a waver machine.. or something!" F*cking F*X news.

I don't know if it's offensive, but its a f*cking sh*t advert either way. US adverts suck.

Doritos would certainly help people forget about the molestations.

@ Trojan
So, is that the big complaint about Fox News? I'm only going to comment on the video that was in the clip... but did you watch it? Yes I know the clip is not really all that interesting and maybe I just misunderstood the big words they were using. However, I do not think all three of them agreed. But, then again, I could be wrong.

Faux News - the only so-called news organization that features an anchor with an opinion and debates the topic with two guests that also share that opinion.

I think it's an advert and funny at that. However, one can only wonder what would happen if they used a different religion in the advert.... (of course, I'm not sure how - switching communion items for chips and pop was a great idea)
And I have to love the comments about Fox News, some people love to loathe Fox, of course I've only heard broad negative personal opinions about the channel. I'm still waiting for someone to bash Fox with actual facts or real examples. Oh well, i guess I can't have everything :)

Oh, it's cool if it's Christianity, but if the commercial mocked Islam, there'd be death threats.

I think the ad characterizes the Catholic Church pretty well.
