StarveThe FOX !

If you buy broadband internet service from cable, you can break
Fox News's hold on our politics and pocketbooks.

You tune in Fox News and see how they beat the drums for preemptive war, the erosion of civil liberties, and bankrupt economic policies.

You watch as they recycle classic propaganda techniques, and spin half-truths in support of right wing candidates and causes. You've seen OutFoxed. You check Media Matters. You wonder why anyone believes their slogan about being "Fair and Balanced."

Well no one does. Ask around. Even conservatives say Fox New promotes their cause - that's why they faithfully tune in. It's also why the Bush Campaign turned to Fox News as a marketing platform for its winning "motivate the base" re-election strategy.

Fox News's right wing slant is no surprise: its management is top heavy with Republicans. Fox News President Roger Ailes spent much of his career as a GOP media consultant: as an advisor for Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr, and also as a producer for Rush Limbaugh.

So what gives? Why all the nonsense about being "Fair and Balanced?"

Why not just admit they are Right Wing TV News?

Catherine,

My son and I were looking for information about Fox news and Ruppert Murdock about a year ago. We stumbled onto an article that listed most news stations and their accuracy (or inaccuracy of FOX). I didn't save or print the article but I swear I think I found a link here on this site. I have searched everywhere I can think of and I can't find it. Can you help? Do you have any idea about the article I am talking about?

Thanks,

Sadie

well if you feel that way, let's starve cnn and moveon.org.

MoveOn.org Pulls Anti-War Ad Following Criticism
By Randy Hall
CNSNews.com Staff Writer/Editor
November 30, 2005

(CNSNews.com) - The liberal political group MoveOn.org has yanked a video ad from its website after being criticized for using images of British soldiers to represent Americans in Iraq.

The 30-second ad, which also began running on CNN and cable stations during the Thanksgiving weekend, stated that "150,000 American men and women are stuck in Iraq" this holiday season.

But the ad showed soldiers who were "not wearing U.S. uniforms," according to a Pentagon spokesman who was interviewed by Cybercast News Service Wednesday, approximately two hours before the Internet version of the ad was pulled from the MoveOn.org website.

"Some folks won't be home this holiday season," the 30-second spot declared before showing a video pan of a group of soldiers getting military rations. The narrator then stated that "150,000 American men and women are stuck in Iraq."

Todd Vician, a spokesman with the U.S. Defense Department, told Cybercast News Service after viewing the ad that none of the men featured in the photograph was wearing U.S. uniforms. "We don't have that style of desert camouflage," he said.

Vician noted that combat fatigues worn by the Marines and the Army have "a pixilated design," and Air Force BDUs (Battle Dress Uniforms) have a different pattern than the uniforms shown in the spot.

In addition to the men wearing foreign uniforms, Vician stated that he had never seen U.S. soldiers using meal containers like those shown in the ad.

A Nov. 21 press release from MoveOn.org Political Action indicated that the advertisement "echoes Democrats' calls for an exit plan from Iraq" and attacks Republicans for "failing to offer a plan to end the U.S. occupation" of that country.

The video ad itself concluded with the following: "Tell your representative. Support our troops. Bring them home."

Along with running nationwide on CNN, the spot was being aired on cable stations in the districts of GOP members of the House of Representatives who, according to the MoveOn.org press release, "launched personal attacks on Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), a decorated Vietnam veteran who last week called for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq."

MoveOn.org did not return repeated telephone calls from Cybercast News Service seeking comment for this article. It was unclear Wednesday afternoon whether the ad had also been pulled from television.

But the television ad has already reportedly drawn a sharp reaction from an Army captain who just completed his third deployment in Iraq, according to OpinionJournal.com.

James Taranto, the author of the OpinionJournal.com column, wrote that the Army captain was "an old friend" of his who emailed with his criticism. The captain was quoted as calling the MoveOn.org TV ad "completely offensive" and "a Bush-bashing ad" that "shows turkey and crying wives and blames Bush for it all."

As "the idiots from MoveOn.org ... pretend to argue on my behalf, they show a group of soldiers standing around a table in the Middle East," the captain reportedly wrote and added that the individuals in the photo were "actually British soldiers.

"One is in shorts (we don't have shorts as a normal combat uniform), and the others are all clearly wearing British pattern fatigues," the Army captain wrote, noting that people at MoveOn.org "don't even know what an American soldier looks like!"

Just like those "swiftvote" vets who made that commercial against Kerry. Go to Goggle and type in Ruppert Murdock, and see what you learn about the news media. No don't, you wouldn't admit the truth if it hit you in the face.

I am glad moveon.org is NOT speaking for you. You are a rare bird who nobody wants to represent. They represent NORMAL people like me. Thank goodness for those groups (like this .com here) who watch our government and hold them accountable. There are just some people who don't want to know the truth.

Do you know any vets who are home from Iraq? If you do - you might want to talk to them. Their story sure is different than what the news media shows us or what our GREAT leader tells us. Can be very interesting.

While Bob Woodward's belated acknowledgement of a secret source in the CIA leak case has attracted a lot of attention and criticism, another journalism scandal has come and seemingly gone involving the Fox News Channel (FNC). The "fair and balanced" network that usually gives conservatives a fair shake was taken over by radical environmentalist Robert Kennedy Jr. and his liberal-left allies. Kennedy, a liberal lawyer and Democratic Party activist, became a "special correspondent" for an FNC special program on global warming that was so extreme as to be laughable. Kennedy was a star in the show.

This was new territory for FNC, which is frequently accused of being a propaganda organ of the Republican Party. Kennedy has written a book accusing President Bush of "crimes against nature" and "hijacking our democracy." He calls Bush "the most corrupt and immoral President that we have had in American history" and says that Bush policies spawned Hurricane Katrina. He implies that the Bush Administration is fascist or Nazi-like.

Kennedy, who had previously criticized Fox News and other "right-wing media" for misinforming the American people on critical public policy issues, has apparently changed his opinion. But what is behind FNC giving a platform to Kennedy and his ilk?

It was almost the reverse of the situation decades ago when conservative Senator Jesse Helms was reported to be interested in taking over CBS News through a shareholder revolt and becoming Dan Rather's boss. That never happened, of course. In this case, the liberal-left managed to take over FNC, at least on a temporary basis, with the connivance of FNC chairman Roger Ailes, a long-time Republican. This astonishing media coup was greeted with cheers on the liberal-left while most conservatives remained silent, apparently afraid to say anything for fear of offending Ailes and getting blacklisted from future appearances on FNC.

At Accuracy in Media, where our founder Reed Irvine taught us to pursue truth no matter where it leads, the truth in this bizarre case has to be told. FNC's November 13 program on global warming, "The Heat is On," was a piece of junk―or more specifically, junk science. Indeed, Steven Milloy, publisher of junkscience.com, told AIM, "I am disappointed that almost no effort was made to qualify, balance and challenge the wild assertions of manmade catastrophic global warming. Even more disappointing was the program's effort to dismiss, diminish and denigrate those who question global warming alarmism."

Milloy is being kind. The program was one-sided to the point of being comical. Viewers expecting a serious treatment of the issue found FNC offering up actors such as Alan Alda, dressed up in a tuxedo at a Hollywood premier, offering their thoughts on global warming as if they were "experts" on science, technology and energy issues.

Milloy urged the program's viewers to check out climatologist Pat Michaels' review of the program on JunkScience.com. Michaels said the show was "more one-sided than anything I've seen in the entire sad history of climate change journalism."

Milloy has contributed articles to the Fox News website that make mincemeat of some of the arguments that were made in favor of man-made global warming that peppered the FNC program. For example, an October 13 Milloy piece, "What Arctic Warming?," completely undermined the theory, which was stated as fact in the program, that human activity is melting the polar regions.

Marc Morano, a guest on FNC when he exposes the left, didn't get any invitations to go back on the network when he reported on CNSNews.com that FNC Chairman Ailes had approved the one-sided program after Kennedy "dragged" him to a lecture by former Vice President Al Gore on the topic. When asked about this, Ailes was unavailable for comment, Morano reported.

In advance of the show, the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) sent a letter to Ailes pleading for fair and balanced treatment of the issue. While the host for the special, Rick Folbaum, had written that "the vast majority of the scientific community says we're witnessing a unique and troubling kind of climate change" and that "no one can argue with this," CEI said that "Many scientists have gone on record disputing this, many of whom are readily available to tell you that science does not support global warming alarmism, and that no one can credibly predict climate change over the next century."

A "disclaimer" was read before the show by a Fox News anchor justifying its slanted nature. She said, "Tonight we are presenting "The Heat is On." You'll hear primarily from those experts and citizens who believe that global warming is a crisis. Many people disagree with that statement. We will continue to investigate the science and hear from others in future Fox programming."

"The earth is sending out a desperate alarm," is how Folbaum began the program. The statement was made as viewers heard the "tick, tick, tick" of a loud clock, as if we were running out of time to save Mother Earth. Viewers saw thick smoke billowing from industrial smokestacks, a dead fish and traffic jams.

It went from bad to worse. As noted by Dr. Michael R. Fox, who has 40 years of experience in the energy field, one of the silliest parts of the program was when FNC put forward an Indy race car driver as an energy expert. The driver favors the use of ethanol for race cars. "It's well known among energy experts that in most cases ethanol is NOT a net source of energy," Dr. Fox commented. "The reason for this is that it requires a great deal of energy to make a gallon of ethanol. In fact, it requires more energy to make a gallon of ethanol than can be obtained from burning the gallon of ethanol. Taken in its entirety, an ethanol fuel system is a net energy consumer."

Near the end, Folbaum provided a free commercial for a radical environmental group led by Laurie David, a "global warming activist," and plugged her website.

But not only was the show biased, Kennedy was on FNC the day before the airing of the program to attack scientists who don't buy into his beliefs as "biostitutes." This smear was a clever play on the word "prostitute," suggesting that those opposing the Kennedy view have been paid off. The "fair and balanced" network had no one on to rebut Kennedy.

Dr. Fox asked, "…what is it about the green lawyer Robert F. Kennedy, which Fox News finds so appealing? Is he an energy expert? Or is he just a noisy Kennedy lawyer, unskilled in physics, chemistry, and engineering? And what is it about Laurie David, the self-appointed energy expert that Fox News found so appealing? What do these people know about climate, energy, and how energy is made, converted, and transported? What are their qualifications, and did Fox News look for anyone more qualified?"

Even more ridiculous, FNC offered Jeffrey Nachmanoff as an expert. He is the screenwriter behind "The Day After Tomorrow," the Hollywood production that depicts global warming producing tidal waves that envelop New York City. Folbaum said Nachmanoff was "alarmed by the message of his own movie" and now saves energy by installing high-efficiency light bulbs in his home.

Folbaum offered the most ridiculous comments of all, saying at the end of the slanted show that FNC was still fair and balanced. "It is our position here at Fox News to examine issues fairly and openly," he claimed. "We do not and will not advocate any position to our viewers. We report .You decide."

There has to be some rational explanation of what happened here. Did FNC chairman Ailes really find Al Gore persuasive? That's hard to believe. Or was putting on the program a clever strategy by Ailes? Did he realize that the environmentalists would make fools of themselves by going to extremes if he let them have the run of the network? The trouble with this theory, of course, is that the credibility of FNC was also damaged in the process.

Some observers think FNC turned its airtime over to Kennedy because he may be in a position to help or hurt them. It has been reported that Kennedy wants to run for high office in New York, where FNC parent News Corporation is based. FNC is said to be cozying up to New York Senator Hillary Clinton for the same reason.

Whatever the motivation, FNC's critics deserve an hour of airtime to respond. That is the "fair and balanced" thing to do.

Here is an oldie, but a goodie. Eat this Bucky (and any of your other sheeple friends who might be reading this).

Fox and the war in Iraq
A year-long study by the University of Maryland's Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA)[8] (http://www.pipa.org/OnlineReports/Iraq/ ... Report.pdf) reported that Americans who relied on the Fox News Channel for their coverage of the Iraq war were the most likely to believe misinformation about the war, whatever their political affiliation may be. Those mistaken facts, the study found, increased viewers' support for the war.

The study found that, in general, people who watched Fox News were, more than for other sources, convinced of several untrue propositions which were actively promoted by the Bush administration and the cheerleading media led by Fox, in rallying support for the invasion of Iraq:

(percentages are of all poll respondents, not just Fox watchers)

57% believed the falsity that Iraq gave substantial support to Al-Qaida, or was directly involved in the September 11 attacks. (48% after invasion)
69% believed the falsity that Saddam Hussein was personally involved in the September 11 attacks.
22% believed the falsity that weapons of mass destruction had been found in Iraq. (21% believed that chem/bio weapons had actually been used against U.S. soldiers in Iraq during 2003)
In the composite analysis of the PIPA study, 80% of Fox news watchers had one of more of these misperceptions; in contrast to 71% for CBS and 27% who tuned to NPR/PBS.

As the Washington Post reported[9] (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/ar ... Oct14.html), "The fair and balanced folks at Fox, the survey concludes, were 'the news source whose viewers had the most misperceptions .' Eighty percent of Fox viewers believed at least one of these un-facts; 45 percent believed all three."

How does a person get misperceptions from "Fair and Balanced" news coverage?

To liberals: It's the ideas, Stupid

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted: January 20, 2003
1:00 a.m. Eastern


© 2003 WorldNetDaily.com

I'm about to pass out from repressed laughter. But laughing is good for the soul, so-o-o-o-o-o-o . . . . . . . ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! I feel better already!

We're told really big time, influential Democrats are all in a snit because conservative talk radio is so popular. It's worse with the growing popularity of Fox News on TV, and don't even mention the Internet, especially Matt Drudge, the epitome of a maverick.

Liberals whine their ideas don't get a fair hearing because they don't control what they perceive as "right wing media." They conclude the American public is "manipulated" and "misinformed."

Typical. If they can't control the game and the outcome, they don't want to play. Or, they want to change the game and the rules.

Let's face it, it's not that liberals don't have media platforms; it's that the new upstarts aren't under their control or easily intimidated.

Actually, the airing of these liberal "grievances" is refreshing. They've finally gone public with what conservatives knew all along: having ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, in fact most every newspaper and magazine plus movies and videos isn't enough.

They want it all and don't see anything funny about it. They believe they're "right" in all they do, so any opposing point of view is laughable and considered "misinformation."

And that's another thing. Liberals and Democrats have no sense of humor. They only laugh at conservatives and Republicans. Actually, they don't laugh. They sneer – and insult, demean and get personal. They aim to destroy and snicker when they succeed. And with mainstream media behind them, they have succeeded.

But it's harder now and they hate it. It infuriates them that these "new" guys not only have the guts and courage to point out fallacies and criticize with logic, but they do it with humor and irony. Liberals find it painful to have conservatives point out the illogic of their positions especially when it's done simply by shining light on them.

Liberal faults and inconsistencies are most often self-evident, but mainstream media ignore that because they're philosophically in bed with the liberal point of view. Conservative media are not, which allows the freedom to critically examine policy and candidates, letting facts speak for themselves.

Liberals hate it when they can't control "facts." And they hate it when they can't control the media disseminating those "facts." With a conservative media distributing facts and airing the truth, it shifts the balance of power.

To liberals and Democrats, power is everything.

As we speak, a hunt is on to find what some refer to as "a liberal Rush Limbaugh." Limbaugh is the king of talk radio, heard on more stations and by more people than any other host.

What the liberals don't see is that he's successful because millions of people found they weren't the only living conservative! His soaring and continued popularity is because he speaks his beliefs, and his audience shares them.

Liberals conclude that the audience marches in lockstep with him and other conservative hosts both national and local. Liberals think the hosts tell the audience what to believe.

They're wrong. The listeners (American citizens) are conservatives but saw in local politics, in the media and in Washington politics only the liberal view. They disagreed but, thinking they were alone, were afraid to speak out. Rush Limbaugh showed them they weren't alone, and his program opened the floodgates for his success and for other hosts to rock the political media status quo.

I remember years ago when I began hosting conservative talk radio, I got a call from a woman in San Francisco media. After a long, convoluted conversation, I was puzzled as to exactly why she'd called. Finally, I asked her, point blank.

Her answer was to inquire why I would "destroy my career by doing this kind of radio."

Well, I'm still working in conservative talk radio, and it's not going away.

Liberals had their chances. Mario Cuomo had a talk show. So did Jim Hightower. And Alan Dershowitz. There were others and they all flopped. They were predictable, humorless and boring. They also had no audience. No audience; no show. Radio is a business.

So is TV. The networks and liberal cable lose viewers. Fox News is up 20 percent. All other cable news have lost as much as 50 percent. "Donahue" is dying; "Hannity and Colmes" succeeding.

There's a message here.

It's the ideas, stupid. It's the truth, stupid. Like it or not, they're not going away. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

There, now I really feel better.

WorldNetDaily is about as reliable for the truth about the Bushies as Faux News is, bucky. You're still not providing links, but anyone who has researched the news media knows WND is just another Bush propoganda shill rag like the Washington Times and Faux News.

Grade for bucky on this thread: F

But that should be good news for you, bucky. You're performing just like your president and his cronies, so you can feel really good about emulating them once again. :lol:

Fox News in Ratings Free Fall

According to TV Newser, the number of people watching Fox during prime time in the 25 to 54 age bracket dropped in April for the sixth straight month.

Here's something you won't hear on Fox News -- ratings for the cable news channel have been plummeting since before the November election.

According to TV Newser, the number of people watching Fox during prime time in the 25 to 54 age bracket dropped in April for the sixth straight month.

TV Newser cited a CNN press release which gave these totals for Fox's primetime audience in the 25 to 54 age bracket: Oct. 04: 1,074,000; Nov. 04: 891,000; Dec. 04: 568,000; Jan. 05: 564,000; Feb. 05: 520,000; March 05: 498,000; April 05: 445,000. That amounts to a decline of 58 percent, with no sign of leveling off.

Graph Showing Fox News Viewership Losses

· The post-election blahs continued at WMAL-AM (630), the news-and-talk station that features conservative yakkers Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Graham. The station, owned by the Walt Disney Co., recorded some of its lowest numbers ever among adult listeners, finishing 20th among all stations. During election season last fall, WMAL was the region's 11th-rated station, but its audience is off 45 percent since then.

Everytime I think nothing else could surprise me something or someone does. How people can be so gullable and blind when it come to this administration is beyond my comprehension.

Fox News could say that Bush grew wings and flies. Bucky and others would believe it, I'm sure. Anyone who said otherwise would be "those damn liberals" always trying to make a mockery of the truth.

It never ceases to amaze me. :?
