Not really, Fox has been getting slammed since the proposal for a conservative leaning news network was introduced to act as a counter-weight to the liberal television media.

From the get-go liberals have been making snide comments and trying to discredit them by claiming they're bias, don't tell the whole truth or don't cover stories that are politically damaging to the conservative viewpoint. Not true of course, but the "Keep believing it and maybe it will come true" mantra seems prominent when it comes to hating Fox.

I dunno, I remember a similarly themed Fiore flash animation from a few months ago that was much better...and really thought-provoking.

No one sees the irony in pewling about the liberal media while defending fox's objectivity?

I am sick and tired of this claim of a "liberal" media. Either present some proof that this is the case or stop making the claim.

There's LIBERAL television media in the States? What station? All I've seen is news ranging from the far right wing FOX news to regular 'ol right wing CNN.

It is not just faux news that is the problem. It is corporate media in general. Here is an excellent documentary demonstrating the bias in the corporate media in a time of war.
