Posted on 01/29/2013 8:43:34 PM PST by SeminoleCounty
For many Americans, Fox News is their alternative choice for news. Theyve made it the No. 1 cable news network, largely because they believe its fair and balanced promotional slogan? Many even believe Fox leans to the right and provides news they cant get anywhere else. But is Fox really different from the rest of the media? Or has it been successful merely at positioning itself as different? Would it surprise you to know that individuals at News Corp., the parent company of Fox News, gave nearly six times as much money to Barack Obama than Mitt Romney in the 2011-2012 election cycle?

-——This is not a Conservative network-——
No one ever made that claim. The point was to be “Fair and balanced” and to present a conservative view totally lacking in the MSM.
There is really no “Conservative View” . If you pay attention on Free Republic you know with absolute certainty that there is almost no agreement on anything. There are varying shades of homogenity but seldom black and white.
There can be no conservative network for the simple reason it would be an economic failure. There would not be enough viewers to make it viable.
Roger Ailes realized this fact and crafted a network that is fantastically successful. Fox is the closest to a conservative network news organization that will ever be.
The “talent” is left wing. It’s hip.
They will all be martyred if there is a violent revolution.
“Is Fox News Really That Different?”
Yeah, in addition to being LIKE the rest of msm, it excels in 0’pinheadism !!!!!
What commie could want more....o yeah, that won...
See, there is your problem. You express some unsupported emotion and call it an opinion.
WND did not attack Fox. Joseph Farah explained, with facts, that Fox is not different.
They never claimed to be anything other than fair and balanced. They still cover stories that would never appear in the other lamestream media, and the reporting (opinion programs aside) is much less slanted in either direction than the LSM.
Fox News Ratings Hit 12-year Low

Fox News had its worst prime time ratings in January in the coveted 25-54 demographic since August 2001, a 12-year low, and its lowest total day ratings since June 2008, Politico reports.
The year started off badly for Foxs On the Record with Greta Van Susteren in particular, which suffered its worst month ever among the 25-54 demo. January also saw the channels lowest total viewership in the 10 p.m. hour since July 2008.
The numbers werent all bad. Fox still had nine out of the top 10 shows for the month. The only program to crack Fox’ total dominance was MSNBCs The Rachel Maddow Show which came in at the 10th spot.
I gave up on FOX News but I do watch:
