You scum complain conservatives get news from a source that doesn't cover up Obamination's bullshit.....insane.
Fox does give two sides of the story, conservative and republican.

Here's the difference between Fox and MSNBC. A Times reporter tried to make the claim during the 2008 election that the two were mirror images of each other. And here's one example to show why they are not...

New York Times TV reporter Jim Rutenberg tries to make a case that Fox News and MSNBC are (in Tom Rosenstiel's words) "reverse images of each other." Here are the actual quotes used by Rutenberg to demonstrate this supposed parallelism–first, Ann Coulter on Fox:
I feel like we are talking to the Germans after Hitler comes to power, saying, "Oh, well, I didn't know."
And then Chris Matthews on MSNBC, addressing those who wouldn't vote for Obama because he's black:
He's been a good father, a good citizen, he's paid attention to his country…. Give the guy a break and think about voting for him.

...these are the quotes Rutenberg picks to show how similar the coverage on Fox and MSNBC is...
MSNBC is arguing that you shouldn't vote against a candidate based on his race, and Fox is comparing that candidate to a genocidal dictator.

One is reporting the news, the other is practicing "perception management".

Cherry pick much? Aren't you the guy who said he was the most non-partisan poster around here? Maybe you were joking and I missed the funny part.

Well personally I have gone from an independent to a democrat but not a liberal. But I'll tell you what I think. The main reason is to make Obama look as bad as possible. I pay attention when new news breaks but it seems that lately Fox has been running this story 24-7. Last night I was watching MSNBC about Romney lying in Ohio about jobs moving to China. A story I had just heard. Then I was asked to see what's on Fox. Bill (I like Bill) had just gone off and Hannity was on so I knew that Hannity was on Libya. And yep. Then later I was asked to turn back and bet $50 it was still Libya. I got fiddy

Fox News is anti Obama all the time. Think ... oops, sorry I forgot to whom I was responding. Consider, if this is not too deep for you Willow Tree, the many 'news' reports Fox Commentators have pushed for the past four years (including the months between Obama's election and inauguration) attacking Obama's nationality, religion, sexual orientation, education, etc. etc.

Of course the constant partisan editorials they broadcast have had success, as President Lincoln noted, "you can fool some of the people all of the time". Isn't it nice that President Lincoln was thinking of you?
I'm not scum, the fact that you can't offer any evidence that Fox isn't all anti Obama all the time suggests to me you have been fully brainwashed - though reading some of your posts suggests to me you like Willow Tree only needed a light rinse. Fox is scripted with an agenda read by commentators not journalists. That you can't understand that Fox is not news and is propaganda suggests to me only two explanations: You're really not very bright and poorly educated or you're willfully ignorant (of course both are likely since they are not mutually exclusive).

Ray McGovern, a retired CIA agent whose expertise was the old Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc countries says the propaganda coming out of Fox News is at the same level as Pravda. But I suspect most Russians knew Pravda was propaganda.
