Sarah Palin joins Fox News

"I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox News," Mrs Palin said in a statement on the network's website.

 

"It's wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news."

 

I already giggle whenever I hear the Fox strapline about fair and balanced, but this is mental. It's not journalism. It's the circus.

Faux Snooze. Ever since that Mass Effect debacle I ignore everything that Fox reports. If they can't be truthful about something as minor as a video game I can I trust them to be truthful about more important issues.

I was about to scorn you for this, but some people choose their news channel based on what the anchors look like. :x

I based my news channel by the least amount of bias it has against the truth. Such as if I want to read news on American politics I go to the BBC. On world events that don't matter to the US too much I go to CNN. For internal US news that isn't political I go to my local stations.

Just to make it perfectly clear: this wasn't said in a sarcastic way?

Every news outlet has its bias. That is normal, but Faux Snooze take it to a whole new level. MSNBC isn't much better but it is on the other side of the political spectrum.

BBC is one of the most biased news sources in the western world. LMAO

(LA Times) Palin, who will make her debut tonight on "The O'Reilly Factor," will appear regularly as a commentator on the network. She'll also be one of the hosts of an occasional series called "Real American Stories," about how everyday Americans cope with challenges.

Not so much on American politics in comparison to Fox, CNN, and MSNBC.

Got any research on the subject? This covers CNN, FOX News and MSNBC as well. I am actually interested in this kind of stuff, but i can't find any numbers.

 

I haven't seen much of the "News"-segment of Fox, but their commentator-shows are incredibly unprofessional and devoid of any taste.

Of course he hasn't got any research. How do you investigate media bias without being accused of the same crime. Can't be done. All anybody has got are opinions.

 

Mine is that the BBC is reasonably professional and a reliable agency. Aren't they public service by the way, that should help in theory at least against political agendas in the boardroom.

Yes, Fox News can be biased, but it's pretty obvious when they are, and it's still better than other news outlets trying to ignore news stories unfavorable to Obama/liberal agenda. But I agree the whole Mass Effect episode was disgraceful.

 

Edit: I guess this is a good place to link the article about the past presidential campaign I saw yesterday: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0110/31302.html

how does that make them any better exactly? they're pretty obviously just the republicans pr channel, of course they'll report news that might harm their opponents. just because left wing media self censors doesn't make fox news reliable or good.

 

i don't see how hiring that idiot could end well for fox news, she's obviously missing a few chromosomes and will just end up embarrassing herself and fox news on air.

At least you get the whole story, I always take political reporting with a grain of salt and don't jump to conclusions until I see multiple sources.

I don't think she's an idiot, just typically ignorant and provincial. Besides if Glenn Beck hasn't embarassed them, no one can. And Beck has been both very good for ratings, and bagged a couple of Obama's sacred cows. Certain segment of the population adores Palin.

well based on the number of scandals she's been involved in, how she handled her governor job and her general appearance and rhetoric i'd say she's a bit stupid. but i guess thats nothing new to the country who had george w. bush as president for 8 years.
