    Nothing new there, considering the date of the article. Only devoted Fox News viewers actually believe that it's "fair and balanced," just as CNN viewers wouldn't watch the "most trusted name in news" unless they trusted it the most.

    It doesn't bother me at all that conservatives have their own cable news network. They have their own newspapers and magazines, so why not? What does bother me is that the far left and far right each have their own echo chambers where they only listen to each other's rantings. People want solutions to the country's problems, not bickering.

    We watch Faux News so you don't have to. Includes some info on the "O'Reilly Actor."

    Edward R. Murrow is spinning in his grave.

    If you have to ask who he was, go look it up.

    What's the big deal?

    Everyone has his or her own biased news source today. No new news to my ears.

    There almost nothing wrong with being biased. I just find it extremely laughable everytime i hear "fair and balanced" I dont know how they keep a straight face when they say that.

    Well, news isn't supposed to be entertaining. If you want entertainment, go to the supermarket and read about Bat Boy.

    Television news these days is entertainment. Sadly enough.
