    I was watching Bill O'Reilly monday night, (not an exact quote) he claimed that the Fox News Network was, The News of Record, and the most powerful news organization in the country and therefore the world.....:eusa_dance:

    So now, not only are they the most fair and balanced but the most powerful news organization in the world? This could very well be....:eusa_think:

    The New York times used to have that distinction but through loss of subscriptions, lack of readership and an ever growing dependence on yellow journalism, it has fallen from favor as a trusted news source. It's obvious, that the networks, many big city newspapers and the Obama captured cable news media still follow the New York Times lead but their not doing so well themselves.....:blahblah:

    I guess Fox News should be giving a special thanks to Obama and his managed media for their due diligence of whining and hate mongering....:eusa_doh:

    Meh, I'm not pissed, I'm glad they are actually doing well. ;)

    A few of my favorite shows are on our local Fox network.

    I'm afraid Bill O'Reilly is going to find himself wrong. Again.

    Let me explain.

    Fox is a right-wing avowedly GOP network.

    To that I'd say – President Obama is a Democrat. From that I would deduce that, although Obama is right of centre, that the right doesn't hold the White House.

    As for the Congress, well, frankly who knows? Toss a coin, check the calendar, it seems that whatever way the wind blows will influence Congress. Fox has just as good a chance as anyone else I suppose. But not more of a chance.

    Fox isn't taken seriously anywhere else. It's a byword for a joke in journalism.

    The bloke who created it knows it but he doesn't care. He's only interested in making more money. And as long as it brings in revenue from advertising Murdoch doesn't really care. He owns the WSJ and The Times in London. He also owns The Sun the tits and bum daily in the UK that has made a mint for him over the years (the Brits still call him 'The Dirty Digger' a reference to his Australian heritage).

    Murdoch isn't a fool, he knows good journalism, he created a fine (if right wing) national newspaper here in Australia in 1964. My home town was actually the home of News Ltd for many years before Rupert decided Delaware with its comfortable corporate laws was going to the the new home of the company his father founded.

    Fox might be pulling in the loot but Bill should understand one thing. It's a joke to the rest of the world. Rupert Murdoch is the new P.T. Barnum and every time he checks the bottom line in the Fox accounts he winks at the shade of H.L.Mencken.

    Bill, get your hand off it, it will grow by itself old son.
