Ha you find nothing wrong with it because it fits your perspective. Always has. Even some right wing conservative friends I have can say Fox is right wing.
It seems more like a personal rant against people who disagree with your beliefs.
Far from it actually. Except for a few sentences in the 1st paragraph, this entire thread is about whether or not the news has a liberal bias or not. I tend to say it doesn't mainly, me being a liberal, disagree with a LOT of what the news says.
It was mainly due to Fox and CNN (don't like that channel either) and some other news stations that this Iraq war got sold to us. They may have never done a truly 'false' story, but the fact that they leave out some critical stories, or switch over to something meaningless while something big is going on is trivial. On the news, that little girl who was murdered was more important then the current war in which people were dying. A small news story would fit it at best, not a nationwide frenzy over it.
I have yet to hear on fox news about the UN's torture report on how there is more torture in Iraq now, then under Saddam. I heard a tiny mutter about the hathida massacre commited by US troops in Iraq, but little since then, including their current trial. I have heard very little on the news of the canadian software engineer who was arrested at JFK with supposed ties to AQ and was sent to Syria and tortured. The very same one who just recently, I believe 3 years after being detained, was told by a judge, that he had absolutely no ties to AQ and was tortured and arrested falsely. they have an article on the site... but never heard a thing on the TV. Now can I seem to find one when I seach Google.
Fox also seems to have a way of calling the Iranian president and the Venezeulan president both nutjobs (possibly not that word, but similar words.) You may cite whenn chavez called Bush the devil, and when the Iranian stated (If we are attacked, we will put Israel into an eternal coma." and similar sayings, but remember, actions speak louder then words. Both have not done as much as we.
----------------------------Senate Moves to OK Detention of U.S. Citizens
The Bush administration has slipped in a major change to the Senate bill on interrogations that would allow U.S. citizens to be detained as enemy combatants. Initially the bill defined an enemy combatant as anyone who engaged in hostilities against the United States or its allies but the definition has been expanded to include anyone who has materially supported hostilities against the United States or its allies. The Washington Post reports that human rights experts expressed concern that the language in the new provision would be a precedent-setting congressional endorsement for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens. Meanwhile on Monday, a group of activists from Code Pink stood up in protest over the bill during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. The activists stood with their backs toward the Senators while wearing t-shirts that spelled out the phrase “No Torture.” The activists called on the Senators to remove a section of the bill that strips detainees of the right to habeas corpus.
UN Envoy: More Torture in Iraq Today than Under Saddam
The United Nations’ leading campaigner against torture has issued a grim assessment of Iraq under US occupation. Manfred Nowak, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, says more Iraqis are being tortured today than when Saddam Hussein was in power. His comments come one day after the UN said more than sixty-six hundred Iraqi civilians were killed in July and August.
