Fox News is discriminatory....
« on: March 14, 2009, 03:48:41 PM »

Why is it that Fox News on cable doesn't have any anchors or shows with views that differ from theirs?

The other cable stations (MSNBC, CNN, CNBC etc) have differing views...Joe Scarborough, Jeff Beck, Lou Dobbs, and many more.  Where are their counterparts on Faux News?

Just wondering?

Simple answer?

Faux news is delivered around a centralised set of standing orders delivered and updated daily by Rupert Murdoch. Anybody who opposes these daily standing orders soon finds themselves without a job.

Pretty much hits the nail on the head.

By 'fair and balanced' they mean that everyone else is regarded as the "liberal media elites" in their heads thus they are committed to churning out right wing ideology propaganda 24/7 to 'balance' things out.

The funniest thing from them is when they flash BREAKING NEWS on the screen while they air a phone call from Rush Limbaugh.

The reason is that in 1988 the FCC head repealed the Fairness Doctrine, which stated that on public communication media in the U.S., both sides of political situations needed to be given air time.

Now why would the FCC head revoke something with "Fairness" in it's title?
Because Reagan appointed him to the position after he worked on Ronnie Raygun's re-election committee.  And so Rupert Murdoch could create conservative only media ventures like Fox News.  This is also the shit that gave birth to gave birth to Rush "you got any oxy's?" Limbaugh.

It wasn't mentioned much in the campaign, but one of the things on Obama's to-do list is the reinstate the Fairness Doctrine.  Rush will go nuclear over that.

The shit seriously hits the fan when one of our broadcasters even hints at a political bias, so much so that there was fucking uproar two months back when the BBC refused to air a Gaza aid appeal in case it was construed as being anti Israeli or pro Hamas.

They had one, with Alan Colmes, not sure why he quit. The only thing I watch regularly on Fox news is Bill Oreilly...almost every show he brings in guests with opposing/left viewpoints.

1. Just because you have an opposing view does not make you "left".

2. This is not the same as having an opposing view show.

And all O'Reilly does is SHOUT down anyone that does not agree with his philosophy.  You only get to hear his side and no one else.  The same with Rush Limbaugh.  That is not opposing views, that is who can yell the loudest and be heard!

Oreilly defo leans right, whether he admits it or not, so most of the folks that disagree with what he's saying tend to come from the left.

As far as shouting...only when the other fucker is so damned stupid, have I seen him shout.

Stupid to whose estimation...his or yours?  Just because you disagree does not give you the right to shout and ridicule the person or their beliefs. 

Give and take, that is what adults do.  Shouting and trying to belittle anothers belief is what kids do.  I guess O'Reilly and Rush are still toddlers.  :shrug:

Alan Colmes is a hapless sheep who is often compared to the Washington Generals, the perennial opponents of the Harlem Globetrotters. His presence in any debate is more symbolic than anything else. He was there so that Hannity could bounce the ball off his head into the basket while Colmes attempted to look like he was defending him.
