    I do not understand why you do not know the difference between opinion shows and actual news. It seems, however, that “chattahbox” is not familiar with that simple fact. Fox has both opinion shows and news. So does CNN. The news is the news. It stands alone.

    Journalism is not dead. Your logic and critical thinking seem to be in their on their death beds though.

    Geeezzzz!

    I don’t see why the results surprised anyone.

    The mainstream media refered to the Tea Party as a handful of right-wing nuts, Nazis and Tea Baggers who represented a danger to society. I don’t think that was a realistic portrayal – Neither did the folks in Mass.

    This is just one of many examples. The media believes the people want more social programs when they really just want a responsible government and a balanced budget.

    “What does it mean that 49 percent of the people polled trust Fox News? Are people really that stupid?”

    In a word, yes. See the comments by “Douglas Stevenson” on this page, for example; he seems to be unaware that Fox News is the *only* media service that has ever gone to court to win the right to fabricate stories and broadcast them as news. See also “Rick Lippit’s” remarks; he fails to understand that the Brown Shirts are, and have been since the 1930s, a fascist organization which stands for racism and intolerance, and who are currently members “in good standing” of the Tea Baggers.

    People love to hate Fox, but never have I seen an example of false reporting on their part. I do believe that people allow their opinions of Fox’s opinion shows to influence their view of Fox’s news coverage.

    Is there actual evidence of Fox fabricating or altering the news? Or do they simply report from a conservative angle?

    There is one “news” organization that tells the right what they want to hear (well, more accurately – there is one “news” organization that tells the right what they want the right to hear). The others lean pretty much to the left, some more than others.

    49ish percent for FOX – half the country who are republicans.

    The remainder of the pie split among the half of the country who are democrats or moderates.
