Fox News

I love the Fox New Channel I have to admit. Only there can you get reasonable and balanced debate over the issues. Now the democrats would argue with that saying that it is the "Propaganda machine for the Bush administration". And they claim that critics of the administration frequently have their mics cut off or are censored. This is a ridiculous claim for anyone who has watched more than an hour of FNC. Could it be that FNC allows both sides to present their case, thereby making the democrat explain himself in a forum where his point of view is not a forgone conclusion? Is that bad? When was the last time a Bush supporter was treated with respect on Hardline with Chris Mathews? Or when was the last time ideas conflicting with the democratic agenda were presented in a rational light on CNN?

With this in mind Jonny Dollar takes Ted Turner, Roger Ebert, and Oliver Willis to task. And the results of his study are very surprising.

This past Tuesday Ted Turner compared the Fox News Channel to Hitler's progaganda machine. I just loved the FNC's spokespersons response: "Ted is understandably bitter having lost his ratings, his network and now his mind -- we wish him well." That's just beautiful!
