Is FOX News fair and balanced? Sounds Tom Coburn doesn't think so.

Recently at a town hall meeting Mr. Coburn (Republican from Oklahoma) Mr. Coburn did the right thing by standing up for one of his fellow Senators (Nancy Pelosi). He also had some choice words for FOX News, and their claim to be fair and balanced: "What we have to have is make sure we have a debate in this country so that you can see what's going on and make a determination yourself," he said. "So don't catch yourself being biased by Fox News that somebody is no good. The people in Washington are good. They just don't know what they don't know." Do you agree with Mr. Coburn? http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/04/06/coburn-defends-pelosi-takes-swipe-at-fox/?fbid=6czsbqAUmCy#more-98355

They are a decidedly right leaning news network...I don't think that's a suprise or news to anyone. Name one of the big three that doesn't lean heavily......*crickets*......yeh, thought so. I will say though I do watch news pretty heavily and it involves all 3 networks (among other sources) and Fox has far more voices from the liberal perspective than the other two have conservative voices, by a large margin. But yes, they do lean right. Unfortunatly it's the only place I can get any critique of the current administration.

X, I agree that FOX has more, but you can't hear them because there is ALWAYS a conservative who is talking over them. You can always come on here and get a critique of the current administration, and you will be amazed at how similar the critiques are. If you want to hear nothing but bad things about our president why would you even leave your computer? You can get it all here!!

I agree that Fox News is biased. So is almost every other news source. All I can say is that you should read all sides and then think for yourself. Even then it can be confusing.
