Why is Fox News biased?
    #3215414 - 10/04/04 09:05 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Any reason why Fox News has a Right wing bias? Was it to counter the Liberal bias of CNN, CBS etc?

it's so that delusional conservatives can feel like the bullshit they spew actually makes sense. It's mental crack/ego stroking  :grin:

Yes. FOX figured out that more left-biased networks were ignoring a large demographic of conservatives. There were and are alot of people who don't trust those networks so Fox decided to offer an alternative .They found a strong niche and have been quite successful.

Right on the money.
I don't think it's as much as a political agenda as people wanna think. Rupert Murdoch cares about his stock a lot more than politics. If he can please both, than he's a happy tyrant.

A lot of times liberals won't appear on fox just because its fox. I listen to Alan Colmes on the radio (one of the few liberals on fox) and he brings up a lot circumstances on how hard it is to find liberals to appear on the show and its so much easier to get conservatives on.

But mostly there is money to be made to give people what they want. They simply can get more viewers being biased.
