    Just saw this and it is funny, especially how far the reaching is: Obama and Cuomo speeches.

    There is a book you should read, called Scorpion Tongues. It gets into the whole history of dirty political campaigning, yellow journalism, and all of it. It can be found cheaply, used, on Amazon.com.

    The Daily Show is truly the best political commentary on TV, bar none.

    I just love the way they lampoon the sheer mindnumbing mendacious blather Fox NEWS feeds their audience.

    I think they try to stay moderate, but it seems like most of their "it's funny because it's fucked up that this is on TV" stuff comes from fox news clips. Probably cause fox is the only station that tries to defend the weekly screwups of the bush admin.

    Truly :lol:, it's funny that you don't respond to legit concerns you choose this venue too. Which allows you to be a coward, without addressing any issues....:lol:

    Anyone even remotely familiar with the concept of truth has to know Fox News is nothing but a propadanda outlet.

    How stupid do they think their audience is to charge Obama with plagerism of Cuomo's speech?

    Either Fox News knows their audience is very stupid, or they know their audience is so partisan to the Republican cause that they don't mind being lied to as long as the lies conform to their prejudices

    Lefties are so used to the news media being so acutely biased in their favor, that when the little TV does not act as a meme for them and support their agenda thoroughly, the libs have a little sissy fit. Truth hurts. Now hold your breath and stop your feet, just like the mental child libs are.

    Election Study Finds Media Hit Hillary Hardest

    Perhaps surprisingly, coverage of the candidates on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report with Brit Hume” was very similar to that of the broadcast networks. FOX’s coverage of Hillary Clinton was evenly balanced – 50% positive and 50% negative comments, compared to 51% positive and 49% negative on the “big three” networks. The tone of FOX’s coverage of Romney and Obama was also within one percentage point of the broadcast networks.

    Instead, FOX stands out for having the heaviest and most issue-oriented election coverage. The first half-hour of “Special Report” has devoted 7 hours 52 minutes to election news since mid-December, an average of over 11 minutes per night, nearly half the newscast after commercial breaks. By contrast, the broadcast networks have averaged 5 hrs 8 min, or seven minutes a night.

    FOX was also twice as substantive as the broadcast networks. Almost one-third of all stories on FOX (30%) dealt with policy issues, nearly double the proportion (16%) on the networks. FOX also carried less coverage of the horse race and candidate tactics than any of broadcast networks.
