  • Because you can actually hear both sides of the debate. I like watching the liberal and conservative discuss a topic so I can hear both sides. Most folks that dont watch fox dont get the fact that they're the only news program that is actually fair and balanced, seriiously.

  • Because, when people take the time to listen to what is said and check the facts, Fox is right. Plus, the other stations spend too much time "hating" everyone and screaming at the audience (Ed Schultz for example) or treating the audience like they are stupid (Keith Oberman). Fox doesn't do that. They also admit if they were found to be wrong (Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck welcome the "fact checking" public to call them on their mistakes.) That is why they are the most popular.

  • Fox Offers the most Conservative Commentary. Love it or hate it, fox makes people think~ whether to learn more or to further one's case against the commentary. IMO People are tired of the liberal BS.

  • Fair and balanced. Thank you! That is my favorite part....when both sides debate. I watch the documentary channel often. I don't agree with 50% of the film maker's stand on things, but I like to hear where they're coming from.

    Recently I've tried to watch "normal" news, and it was so boring and uninformative. They talked about stars, recipes, weather, a quick little ditty about "world events" about 4 min, and some bashing on Republicans. No thank you.... What a waste of my morning.

  • Fox viewers are "brainwashed"? I think NOT, Fox viewers prefer to be informed on issues, rather than follow the Pied Pipers and their Obamadom propaganda...

  • Because most other channels are more main stream , Fox is the only station that specifically (lies) tells the right wing conservative agenda...


     Thanks for the laugh. You blind hatred of Conservatives is amusing.

  • How could any OTHER NEws channels have that kind of information? It is wingnut blogging.


    Besides the "side" of Politics, How is MSNBC any different? Joy Behar on CNN is nothing but a blog, by your logic...... A suckish one at that (just look at her ratings), nonetheless~ a blog.. Right?
