A pseudo-news channel catering to the bottom of the American right-wing extremist barrel - people who are deathly afraid of anyone and anything that's even the slightest bit different from them. About as "fair and balanced" as the Iranian government, which it closely resembles.

National Republican Bullshit Network. Watched by ignorant, gun-toting, flag-waving ultra-nationalistic right-wing Christian fundamentalists who think George Bush is the new fucking Messiah or something; basically, the scum of American society who, if they had their way, would turn America in a fascistic police state in order to feel safe from the "terrorists" (aka: "brown people").
Fox News is only good for laughing at the bullshit those worthless Republicans like to spew. If you want a real source of news, go the independent route.

A member of the Corporate News Media consortium, which includes the BBC, CNN (Blatantly named, "Corporate News Network"), ABC, (MS)NBC, CTV (Canada), Sky Networks, and others, especially subordinates of News Corp of which Fox is a part. Fox News uses the motto, "Fair & Balanced", when the constant barrage of editorial segments broadcast each day prove the network to be anything but.

The New York arm of Fox News is the most infamous, featuring such figures as Bill O'Reilly & Sean Hannity in the evenings, Don Imus, Megyn Kelly in the "objective news part of the day", Eric Bolling (former Oil Industry stock broker) on the newly instated program 'The Five', and even a petulant child in the body of a man named Neil Cavuto, the latter of whom is a top executive in the network and an obnoxious voice against any economic policy that could restore North America's domestic economic strength.
Bill O'Reilly is one of the commentators on the program. While he used to be a journalist in his younger days, and had a tabloid news program on CBS, his entire stint at Fox News has been nothing but a giant insult to journalism today.

Ratings is one of the only defenses Fox News can rely on when other media figures, regardless of their scope in the global media emporium, call them out on their deceptive tactics.

Sensationlist trash channel. State media dumbed down so even Dubya can understand it.
Fox News tries blame everything on liberals, and all its arguments could be defeated by a 7th grader.

Verb. The act (specifically done in debate) of taking someones words and twisting them into something both totally unrelated and utterly offensive in an attempt to detract attention from how wrong the fox newser may be. Comparable to a red herring, Fox Newsing is different in that it usually makes even less sense than a typical red herring. Typically used as a last resort in a disagreement, fow newsing too often can also lead to a warped sense of reality, wherein the fox newser see's the world however they see fit, or, more commonly however any number of pundits tells them they should.
a. "I think it is wrong that children in third world countries starve to death by the thousands, while children in America are obese."
b. "Oh, so you're a communist then. Fascism doesnt work, alright? Not everything hates America!"
a. "That's not at all what I said, in the slightest. Don't fox news me."
b. "Shut up!"
