    There isn't a un-or non --biased news outlet out there !  Fox at least tells it all ! They hide nothing . Yes they are conservative  and state that proudly , but if you think the others aren't lying  !  You have become drunk on liberal cool-aid !  Good for you though , drink up !

    It is definitely sensible as long as you watch both sides of the topic.  Fox News is definitely more conservative, hires the more conservative reporters, presents the conservative stories, and so on.  Keep an open mind and make a point of also watching more liberal networks that will present or emphasize other sides of topics and issues so you are aware of the whole argument, not just one aspect.

    I usually look to UK based news outlets to balance US-originated outlets.  MSNBC is horribly biased.  Really, you probably should compare stories between networks -- somewhere in between you may get a glimpse of truth.  Too many journal pieces are in truth, editorial pieces.

      Good points. Perhaps the best place for news is non-mainstream Internet. Perhaps that's why American gov't is trying to censor the Web with SOPA, PIPA, CISPA, TPP and other draconian legislation.

      I concur, lone77star.  Have you seen the latest headline: According to Judicial Watch, Rep. Edolphous Towns (D-NY) has introduced the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2011?  It would seal Pres Obama's records after he leaves office...

    I'm not sure why you're calling Fox news biased as opposed to other news networks, but I'm guessing you're repeating what liberals say.  Fox news has been a breath of fresh air for conservatives who've had to listen to skewed news and half-truths for decades.  It's been glaringly obvious during this election year how distorted the views of the liberal left news networks have become.  Many across this great nation feel the same way and it shows in the growing ratings of Fox news and the declining ratings of the others.

    Is it sensible to watch any biased reporting on any network?

    The Rothschilds own the sources of most Corporate Party media news. Anything that jeopardizes their agenda you will never hear about on their news channels, whether they be print, radio, TV or internet.

    The Corporate Party has done a bang up job of keep alive the illusion of normalcy and choice.

    The only real choice is on the Internet, but American government has been incessantly trying to censor the web with things like CISPA, SOPA, PIPA, TPP and similar tyrannical legislation. All the freedoms are being squashed, one-by-one.

    Now, even voting is gone at the presidential conventions. The following 2 short videos show how everything is scripted, ignoring votes and protests.

    RNC Scripted:

    DNC Scripted:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmaE2Aez_XY

    And now, in America, it's felony to protest in a public place what the government is doing. Tyranny sneaked up on America and bit it in the butt. Now, America is the Evil Empire. And if you get your news from mainstream media, you're merely sucking up to the teat of oppression.

    For anyone who is awake enough to listen, I don't hold much hope for America's future. So, prepare yourself and your family for the coming storm. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are on the horizon, headed our way.

    With $16.3 Trillion in debt and accelerating toward nightmarish levels, America doesn't have long before the biggest bubble pop in the history of planet Earth. That pop will make the Great Depression of 80 years ago look like a rosy picnic. Why are politicians doing this? Because their Corporate Party masters want it that way. Why are the Corporate oligarchy pushing for the destruction of America? Because America was the only great barrier between them and their vision of a one-world enslavement of humanity.

    Multiple studies have shown that those who watch Fox are less informed than people who watch no news at all.

      wow that is surprising news. So does this mean Fox News misinforms us?

      I would say that that is a logical conclusion.

    You can watch whatever you want, the trick is not blindly believing what they are telling you to believe.  If you take the news with a grain of salt, and do your own homework and research, you should be fine.  If you don't take the time to look up anything that is being reported then I would be concerned.

    Fox may lean towards the right, but the rest of the media leans towards the left. All the major networks are very liberal, except Fox.

    All of the news networks seem like they are Super-Pacs for one candidate or the other. They just get their money from sponsors instead of public interest groups.
