Is a citation from Fox News saying that Fox News is fair and balanced really a good idea? I would think that it would be more appropriately said as "Fox News claims to be fair and balanced," or something along those lines. Anyone disagree? --Commodore Guff 15:23, 7 March 2007 (EST)

  • I disagree. One of the ways Fox News attempts to be fair and balanced is by inviting guests from both sides of the issue. Personally I would prefer to only hear from conservatives, but Fox News has both sides. Hannity and Colmes is a great example of a Fair and Balanced show - Sean is the Conservative and Alan is the liberal (and proud of it). Dean 17:28, 7 March 2007 (EST)

I think this entire article could use an overhaul. Although I am a supporter of Fox News, the bias in this article in very apparent. --<<-David R->> 15:25, 7 March 2007 (EST)

  • I disagree. If there's any bias in this article, it's toward conservatism and the Truth, which was the whole purpose of Conservapedia in the first place! --Ashens 16:44, 7 March 2007 (EST)
  • Well it does have a very obvious bias. You are right in saying that Conservapedia has a point of view to impose. But the srticle goes beyond the point of view of Conservapedia.
Take this example from the article: "Fox News is best because instead of just telling you what to think, they only report the news unbiased and then allow the viewer to decide."
  1. Even though I may think it is a fact that Fox News is the best, it is merely my opinion.
  2. This sentence and others are worded as if they were written by a 1st grader - read after comma to see what I mean.
The point is the article must be written over again to present a factual, encyclopedia-worthy article. --<<-David R->> 16:56, 7 March 2007 (EST)
    • If one news source tells you what to think (as any of the leftist mainstream media stations do) and another just reports the facts in a fair and unbiased manner, then clearly the second news source is superior, by definition! --Ashens 17:00, 7 March 2007 (EST)
      • Every source has a bias. Fox News is no exception.

True. Didn't even notice the "Sean Hannity is a great American" statement at first, which I think is safe to say is an opinion. Also, the reference points to an outdated car giveaway. Doesn't seem like it belongs. --Commodore Guff 15:42, 7 March 2007 (EST)

I think the link for the first reference needs to be changed. It is used as a citation for Fox News saying it is Fair and Balanced, but the link only goes to a page with employment opportunities.
