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.

A far right neo-con "talk show" that presents itself as news. In fact if the news does not favor their distorted view they focus on sensational tabloid stories of rape and murder to titillate the religious right that pretends morality. This show is so hilarious that I might even rate it as a comedy if it werent for the fact that some ignorant americans really believe it is fair and balanced. It is a show for lower IQ people who want to be reassured their small minds are correct and that everyone in the world who isnt white,right wing extremists re evil. Fox news hates you if you are Democrat, moderate thinking republican. Catholic, Lutheran,asian,black,hispanic, and the list goes on. They have a narrow box of extreme radical fundalmentalist with a corporate agenda and if you look closely rather perverted. The owner (Rupert Murdich" specializes in tabloids that exploit crimes against women and children then report every delicious sexual detail so the "moral" religious right" can get their jollies while exclaing how hrrible everyone else is. It really promotes rich big corporations and Republicans like George W. and use their guise as a "conservative" station to manipulate the average, easily manipulated person who wants to think of themselves as moral citizens while their mind is being filled with anything but factual news reporting. Wake up america and start watching C-span and see what is really happening.
Wake up America and start thinking and quit being manipulated!

Funniest Tv station ever. Good source of entertainment. But seriously, I trust the Daily Show more.

Completely and utterly without merit. A news station that not only presents the most wildly conservative of biases with the slogan "Fair and Balanced," but also presents worse television than Jerry Springer. I am NOT watching the news to see Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly scream "SHUT UP!" at every single guest they have.
The usual transcript of The O'Reilly Factor:
O'Reilly: Today, America, we're here with Al Franken and Alan Colmes. I don't have backup because I'm a pompous idiot who thinks I own the world.
Franken: You got the first part right.
Colmes: *giggle*
O'Reilly: Shut up, both of you. Now, onto our discussion. Today we are presenting the fact that all Muslims are evil.
Colmes: No, Bill, you can't--
O'Reilly: Shut up! It's--
Franken: Bill, that's wrong because--
O'Reilly: Shut up, shut up!
Franken: You're being completely unreasonable, and if you'll listen, I'll tell you why! It's not po--
O'Reilly: SHUT UP!
Colmes: God, this sucks. *walks off set*
O'Reilly: One less opponent for me.
Franken: Now do I get a chance to prove my point?
O'Reilly: No, we're going to a commercial.
Franken: No, we can't go to a commercial because you presented a completely innacurate stereotype and are attacking one of the most--
O'Reilly: SHUT UP NOW, YOU IDIOT! You're wrong, I'm right, what more is there to say?!
Franken: NO! We CANNOT go to a COMMERCIAL because--
*commercial*

A common typo for the corporate lobbyist, i mean news, no actually i mean corporate lobbyist network which is actually spelled faux news. It was initially faux news but roger ailes decided to keep the mistake because he realized few rednecks, i mean Sarah Palin supporters, no I mean rednecks wouldn't know what faux meant and after they found out it was originally a french word most likely boycott the station and say it was "for commies" which is the noun they use for anything they disagree with.
redneck 1: Hey Cletus did you see that fox news last night.

redneck 2: Yeah Festus I was watching it, I'm glad someone else thinks shut up is a good comeback too.

This channel is considered to be a total joke by all other repubtable news channels like CNN, MSNBC, BBC, and the network news shows. The reason? The news is supposed to be presented to viewers without spin, so that they can draw their own conclusions about a story. Granted, depending on an individual reporters political views, there will always be some slight bias. But Fox News presents the news with an obvious and overpowering conservative bias. And what's funny is that they call themselves 'fair and balanced.' What a crock of crap! To informed viewers, it's easy to see through the personalities who use choice wording to make conservatives appears strong and just, while making moderates appear weak and liberals appear irrational. This is not news. Fox can even spin stories that aren't politcally based, such as turning reports on Katrina into a politcal stomping ground. This channel is home to some of the biggest assholes on TV including Britt Hume, Sean Hannity, and Bill O'Rilley. But the worst of all is Ann Coulter, who I'm pretty sure should be diagnosed with a mental ailment. The problem with this channel is that it's easily able to infiltrate/brainwash many non-politcally active viewers.
Fox News is only fair to conservatives and is in no way balanced. If you disagree with far-right politics, they'll shut you up and put you down. You wanna see the news? Turn on Brian Williams on NBC, at least he acts like a real newsman.
