Editorial notes

Needs a bit of flesh - there are a lot of short sections and reams of quotes. There must be loads of stuff that could go in.

This topic has the potential to be a great RW article...anyone interested in tackling it?--PalMD-Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice! 06:53, 12 August 2007 (CDT)

Hilarious[edit]

I clicked the link to Conservpedia's Fox News link, and I'll say this: It was the one of the funniest fucking things I have ever read. Trying to defend Fox News of being "unbiased" is like trying to make Ron Paul the Republican nominee for president.

"GOP Pravda"[edit]

I think that I created that one for my use as a smear... of both the Republican Party and the Commie rag.

Strange[edit]

It's odd that both the most conservative news channel and most liberal comedy are both on Fox. -Bigljbigl (talk/stalk) 07:40, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

The popularity of the latter brings the audience — with chance of viewer spillover into the former? Besides, imagine the notion of "conservative comedy". By which I mean; comedies making fun of liberals/feminists/hippies still file under 'liberal comedy' (read: liberal ≈ unconstrained/potentially offensive).

Fox News in Canada, news vs entertainment[edit]

The claimed distinction that Fox News Channel is only allowed in Canada due to its being classified as an “entertainment” channel rather than as a “news” channel is a meaningless one, as those classifications only apply to Canadian media outlets, and Fox is an American company.

I'm not sure this particular criticism of Fox News as "entertainment", instead of "news", is a useful one to include here. Ofus (talk) 13:10, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

@OfusHmm... It seems to me that we should just remove that line entirely. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 13:23, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

Fake News[edit]

I propose that "Fake News" be added as another moniker after "a.k.a Fucked News, Faux News, Pox News, 7ox News, "Bullshit Mountain",[4] America's Pravda..." as Donald Trump, the President of the United States, always refers to Fox News as Fake News. — Unsigned, by: 71.226.11.248 / talk / contribs
