Running away much? Are you now having doubts about your "zero credibility" statement?
you can't have a reasonable conversation with someone who believes unreasonable things. if you truly believe that FOX is fair and balanced then their is nothing that I or anyone else can say that will change your mind.

I would rate CNN, FOX then MSNBC.
CNN?? Really!!??
I have no interest in arguing with you if Fox is balanced or not, but to say CNN is more balanced than them is just silly.

Who gives you the moral high ground to state that in your favor, when I can state the same in my favor:

you can't have a reasonable conversation with someone who believes unreasonable things. if you truly believe that FOX is NOT fair and balanced then their [sic] is nothing that I or anyone else can say that will change your mind.

Oddly enough, I have never actually stated unequivocally that they are fair and balanced. You said that they have zero credibility and then you started a new thread to find out if your opinion about Fox News not being fair and balanced is shared by other members here. Clearly, you don't want to hear otherwise.

I simply made some points to prove why they MAY be fair and balanced, and why that title they give themselves holds water relative to all the other networks out there.

Fox and MSNBC are at the ends of the spectrum. CNN while not in the middle they are not at one extreme either.

Fox is on average in the center. Hannity and Huckabee are conservative, Oreilly and Greta are very much in the center. When you combine averages, their position is in the center, as is WSJ.

Breitbart and Drudge are conservative.

I only mentioned a small fraction of the equation. Take the hundreds of journalists, and the center-leaning journalists far outnumber the right-wing journalists.

So why the claim of fair and balanced ?
Call yourself Conservative and don't lie to your viewers.

Every viewer knows exactly which way they lean. They're not trying to fool anyone.

CNN isn't lying by claiming to be impartial?
Everyone has an agenda. Fox is balanced news like Atkins is a balanced diet. Something needs to balance everything out.

Agreed. That's why you shouldn't get everything from one source no matter what your beliefs.

But I'll still call a spade a spade.

These headlines should end this debate.


Here are some recent headlines from Fox News:
  • What are the keys to a lasting cease-fire in Gaza?
  • Obama tells Netanyahu US worried about mounting civilian deaths
  • Netanyahu vows Israel will do 'whatever is necessary' in fight with Hamas
  • Israel clashes with Hamas in Gaza Strip

Now, here are some from CNN:
  • How can bloodshed end?
  • Israel military rejects blame for deaths at U.N. shelter
  • Reporter's notebook: Scenes from the ground in Gaza
  • U.N. shelter in Gaza hit, 16 dead
  • Is Hamas using human shields in Gaza? The answer is complicated
  • In Gaza, attack on hospital delivers devastation and grief

The Fox News headlines do not in any way show favoritism to one side, whereas the ones from CNN...
