    Default Media Bias

    I saw where FOX didn't cover Obamas Health Care Town Hall.
    The anchor did announce that if and when the meeting got contentious, that FOX would then immediately cut away to it for live coverage of that part of the meeting.

    Is that their version of "Fair and Balanced"?

    The NH thing was a set up, everybody knows that (except maybe you).
    That was not NEWS, that was an infomercial.

    Was that conference your idea of fair and balanced??

    Yup, you sure wouldn't want to hear what the president has to say unless someone is yelling and screaming at him.

    I recall people getting dragged out of Bush rallies because they had shirts on with print on them that wasn't approved right wing wear and people being put into protest zones that were nowhere near the rallies or the route in and out that Bush's motorcade was taking.

    what really shows on this board is where we get our information/news, those of you with more liberal views tend to quote MSNBC ,those of us with more conservative views quote Fox News

    I watch O' Reilly and Glen Beck, while some of you are watching Keith Olberman...draw your own conclusions

    My bad, I thought you were talking about "the Obama's" infomercial, now I see it's about Bush bashing.

    I for one, am glad Fox chose not to broadcast Fearless Leader and his propaganda, his bloviating is a waste of airtime.

    I see your point Stan.
    Seeing what the POTUS has to say regarding HC is not nearly as newsworthy as some of the stories they chose to cover. Such as whether or not some cop is pissed that his fellow officers are looking at his wife's Playboy pictorial, or the story about a bear swimming in a Calif swimmimg pool. Or whether or not Miley Cyrus was pole dancing, or whether or not some Oregon guy has A PANTY FETISH.

    Why educate when you can titillate?

    My answer to your question about whether that conference was fair and balanced is an obvious NO!! FOX didn't cover it so obviously it wasn't, as they are TRULY fair and balanced. After all they tell us that all the time
    THEY REPORT WE DECIDE!!!

    My question to you is why did FOX announce that they wouldn't cover the meeting. But they did announce ahead of time that if the event got contentious then they would cut away from their regularly scheduled "Fair & Balanced" coverage to only cover that part of the event.

    Is that your version of a fair and balanced attitude towards "NEWS" coverage?

    They probably didn't think it was newsworthy to broadcast the daughter of a big Obammy donor asking a question about "signs with mean words".

    If you could not predict exactly what he was going to say then you haven't been paying attention to the news over the last few weeks, there really was no reason to watch it.

    Someone wake me up when either side says something new.
