    I could go either way but I watched that documentary OutFoxed and I am leaning towards a yes...

      Some of the "reporters" or commentators do hurt America.  FOX lends an ear (and sometimes a platform) to too many liberal radicals in the name of being "fair and balanced".   If they're not careful, they'll be no better than CNN before it's over.  One such wolf in sheep's clothing is Megan....I forget her last name.   O'Reilly borders on defection too.   With Glenn Beck gone, FOX is hanging on by a shred.   Well, though, Hannity seems to be okay still.  And maybe a few others.

    Hurting America? No. It hurts it's owners whenever on live. I don't watch Fox because it's operated by morons.

    How could one lone voice of journalistic integrity hurt a nation that is so badly wounded, its death notice is already written? The great Roman Empire, once infallible, was run by out of control morons just before its shining light was permanently extinguished and the similarities between today's America and Rome are eerily similar . . . hmmm, I wonder if Obama plays the fiddle?

      If he doesn't, he's got a buncha followers who willingly play it for him.  And they laugh as they play.

      It couldn't, but that doesn't stop conservatives from claiming that NPR is bad for the country.

    I think Fox News has had a divisive influence on those who listen to it religiously. Their intent certainly isn't fair and balanced.

    No, I don't think Fox News hurts the country.
    They reflect and reinforce opinions that are held by a segment of the population.
    They are entitled to those opinions.
    Just don't confuse them with facts.

    I don't know if FOX news hurts the country. However, I do know that sometimes Fox news can be more terrifying to children than a horror flick.

    Jesus, if you don't like Hannity or O'Reilly, what the hell is your definition of a "conservative"?

      I had to watch 5 episodes of O'reillys show and do an analysis paper for each one without taking a side. It was awful.

    Fox is not a news source, and too many people look to it as one, which IS damaging.

    Instead, Fox is a three ring circus of rampant idiocy and bigotry.  I'm sad for the deluded people who watch that "news" programming and believe what they are hearing.

    We no longer have news broadcasts we have commentaries. It's really sad.
