Fox 25 is gone but Fox News is still here! I really don't want any Murdoch propaganda on my TV and I really don't wan't to pay for it.
I don't want Fox of any sort. Get rid of it all.
Sadly (for the sane people), the propaganda has just tripled with addition of the loony BLAZE and OAN (knowns as Faux News Jr.) . Not all from Murdoch, but plenty for the factually-challenged to enjoy.
The BLAZE and Fox News: News where you actually have to think for yourself. Unlike CNN, MSLSD, HLN where everything is liberal propaganda spoon-fed to you.
Some of us like the convervative point of view!
Isn't it great to live in a country where we can actually choose the news we care to listen to? I rarely watch those other news stations but I am glad we have them (eventhough I make fun of them). We have a free society with multiple points of view. Freedom of speech. This is part of the freedom we share.
Fox "news", which is hardly news exists on a number channels: Fox Business News , Fox News, The Blaze that has Glen Beck radio and other conservative commentators and of course Fox news on the regular Fox channels that are available locally. That's a lot of coverage. In addition to this is the ultra right garbage coming from CNBC and the One Ameriuca "news". We are being overwhelmed with right wing propaganda. Enough. There should be more balance.

Agreed. My biggest problem with Faux "news" is not their slanted agenda so much (different strokes and all) but how they misrepresent facts and pawn it off as truth...and sometimes they'll just out-and-out lie. SInce Fox is not really a news channel, I guess that's allowed. As an exercise a while back, I spent some time fact-checking stories as reported on CNN, MSNBC, and Faux. MSNBC was #1 as the most factually accurate, with CNN second (although CNN in two cases did report and rescind their error). Faux was waaaay out in front with the most inaccurate reporting. At the top of the misrepresentation heap was O'Reilly (no surprise there. I guess.) As for OAN, they are always boasting about how they are "family owned." What family? The Kochs or the Mansons?
P.S. If more evidence is needed on how "fair & balanced" they are, Faux has some show called "FIVE"...which features 4 right-wingers and just ONE leftie. That is how Faux defines "balance." Faux viewers, of course, couldn't care less.
