Anyone watch the election results on FOX last night? Such grim faces those boys had.
Now why would they have long faces? I thought they were "fair and balanced?"
they didnt and they are
ravi is just a moron
last night fox showed dole ahead of hagan....50 % to 47%...other networks had hagan well ahead by the same time. some with numbers as high as 60% for hagan....
fox is neither fair nor balanced...but then are any news medias?
It will be interesting to see if they grow up and change as a media outlet. Their obvious bias and their slanted news is losing viewers and in the end it is money that talks.
Yeah, I watched it most of the night. For the most part, I thought they were pretty good but occasionally, you could see the disappointment come to the surface.
i dont think any of them are fair or balanced....come on...they are all slanted....i flipped between major election coverage and was appalled by it. i dont care for hologram reporters or major fancy boards that do this and how that...i want the news ..simple and direct...not accessorized...when our armed forces are in the news..they clean up the words...the men are yelling...."get the fuck down" but on the news the fuck goes away...not in canada...so why here? why are we afraid of reality? any reality?
anyone fronting money for a news network is going to want to influence the news...it can be done by selection of reporters and commentators ... you dont put bill oreilly on and expect him to be fair ..now do you...anytime you expect to learn from "talking heads" you will be disappointed...are these people there to inform you...or get ratings?
dependance of americans on "talking heads" shows how truly lazy most americans are.
it is much easier to fall at the feet of one of the "pundits" than research an issue. plus if you research the issues and the political parties reactions to issues...you will be horrified by the fact that neither party is responding to the needs of the people..
I was watching CNN but my husband (a registered, lifelong republican) was watching FOX in our den area and he came out at one point and said to me, "Boy, you should see how grim the Fox casters are reporting this....."
Now this was earlier in the night....maybe around 10pm.
So, i did not see it Ravi, but my husband did....and i do believe him....
One thing i can say though, is that if Obama had been losing, i can guarantee you those newscasters at MSNBC with their obvious slant, would have had grim faces themselves....
So, knowing the slant of FOX, I suppose it is understandable....
I think the opinion parts of the news are obviously slanted in all MSM but Fox tends to present 'news' that is slanted or ignores 'news' that doesn't coincide with their viewpoint. If some important event is going on in the world and you switch to them, you find the event must fit in or it is not even presented.
I was watching around 10 as well, before the election was called but certainly when things were going south for the Repubs. They tried making a few jokes, but their faces...OMG. I almost felt for them.
