MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Condemning the Fox News Channel as a warmonger that’s agitating for a U.S. attack on Iran, documentary filmmaker Robert Greenwald and independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders announced an “online viral video campaign” Wednesday calling on television news organizations “not to follow Fox down the road to war again.”

Greenwald, the director behind “Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism” and “Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price,” has compiled a new three-minute video that mashes clips from Fox’s coverage of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and its aftermath with recent coverage of possible U.S. military action against Iran.

Full Story

Left left likes to say that the right wants to censor, but it is really them that want to censor in true extreme socialist tradition.

Oh, BTW, before someone says it they have Bernie Sanders as an independant. He is not, he is a Socialist.

Its pretty much a no braner that Fox is very conservative. MSNBC tends to lean too far to the left. CNN always seems to have the fairest coverage in my opinion and is where i always get the new from.

CNN tries to be fair, ill give them that, but Foxnews is the best, not only because theyre pro-family and pro-Christian, but also because they actually hire hosts with the views of the opposite party. heres the night line up. Bill Oreilly (conservative)
Hannity (conservative) and Colmes(Liberal) and Greta Vansustren (mild Liberal) on CNN I see all liberals as show hosts, but they keep their views on a leash. Msnbc on the other hand is rabidly liberal.

I don’t accept that assessment. Please cite an occasion where news has been presented conservatively. If you are talking about opinion programs, Fox News has people on both sides giving opinions. On the Sunday news/talk programs for example, there will be panelists from both sides. Then there is Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer. Not a conservative in the lot. I don’t call that fair.

Blitzer, I believe, is a bit conservative. And CNN’s spinoff HNN has radio host Glenn Beck doing an odd, funny little pundit show (although “Pundit,” from the Sanskrit for “learned,” is about the last word that comes to mind when you see Glenn Beck).

But all told, Fox is the most balanced network. CNN not only hires almost exclusively liberals, it has problems in its news coverage (not CBS outright making stuff up, but it slants things mightily). Not as bad as MSNBC, though. Fortunately MSNBC’s ratings are what you’d expect for people so dim, they put a pompous ex-sportscaster on in the same slot as O’Reilly. Then, their overminds have decided, everything after 11 Mountain time is…To Catch A Predator, and nothing but!
