The people on the opinion shows give their opinion and spin.
I watch it and listen to it on the radio daily. I also listen to BBC and NPR and watch network TV news. I make every effort to be REALLY fair and balanced. I often hear the blantant inaccuracies they give as "truth" and get very angry.
The major difference between fox and stations like msnbc is fox makes a distinction between their shows while others blend opinion and news together and pretend it's all news.
I don't agree. The news staff give out inflammatory and very skewed news, such as the geography class learning about the Islamic culture in Texas. Fox reportedit as teaching pro terrorist propoganda and MAKING the kids wear burquas. So wrong! They never did come back and report that they were off base with that. I watched it, so don't say it didn't happen. I was so upset by the story I researched it to see who I needed to be angry with. Then, I learned how different the truth really was.
