    Their success is based on common sense, they tell both sides of the story and they tell the people all the little things the Left Wing MSM doesn't want us to know ....

    Watch Cute Perky Katie, when she is through go to Fox and listen to the same story Kate was telling you, it's amazing how much she left out to fit her "Biased left Wing Agenda"

    hahahaha...

    the poll was of 1,100 people....

    I trust FOX news.....trust them to be misinformed and paranoid. I trust them to deliver skewed facts that have either been made up, or are false. I trust FOX news to manipulate video to make me THINK more people agree with what they are saying than actually do.
    I trust FOX news to make political statements at the bottom of the screen then pose them as questions.....then report on that as if it is actual news.

    They are very trustworthy in being wrong.

    I have been watching cable Foxnews for years. Love the show and people.

    I listen to 790 KABC radio show because Sean is on every day.

    Fox news does a really good job at exposing Obama's lies and democrat's BS.

    A lot of polls are based on stats from small samples and wind up being pretty accurate. I'm always amazed when an election winner is called sometimes with under 10% of the vote is in the books and that would be an another example.

    Like the article says though, the results are likely due to the fact that people tune into media that tells them what they want to hear. Therefore they trust it.

    Fox cannot be blamed for electing the false prophet.

    Or CNN's Wolf Blitzer....:bricks: though overall CNN's a bit more balanced than MSNBC. They should never have let Lou Dobbs go.

    With a couple of exceptions, Fox presents the most balanced of all plus they've added guys like John Stossel from ABC, they have Lou Dobbs as a guest once in awhile, Judge Napolitano's a frequent guest, Ron Paul's appeared on occasion etc. If I'm around to watch TV or news I usually watch Fox over the others. Sometimes PBS.

    Fox is gaining viewers by the second and they're all not necessarily Reps/conservatives either. It's gaining moderate Dems and even some liberals; lots of people aren't too happy with what's been going on and the asskissing just isn't working anymore.

    39% of those polled label themselves as Conservative
    14% of those polled label themselves as Liberal..

    No wonder they came up with these results..

    That's about the numbers nationally too. We've been over that.

    Thanks for telling me, but if that is who they polled the outcome is obvious.. it is not random sampling..

    Yes it is. The Liberal number of 14% is a few percent lower than the national average, the Conservative number is just about right on. So you can rightly quibble about a few % for the Liberals and adjust the numbers a touch if you like - but the overall concept that they polled a lot more Conservatives than Liberals is correct and valid polling given that there was a 40-20 split a few months ago and that has almost certainly widened slightly since then. But even at 40-20, the polling is off slightly but not by a significant order of magnitude. You certainly wouldn't expect a 50-50 split of those polled when that's not close to representative of the country; well, maybe you would but you'd be wrong.

    This of course is a meaningless poll. Since Fox is the mouthpiece for conservatives, they naturally trust it. Liberals do not have an equivalent network, so they either divide their votes over the the other networks or don't trust any at all.

    CNN Falsely Attributes Racist Quote to Rush Limbaugh

    "MSNBC misrepresented the facts to try to back up a bogus claim about racism being behind opposition to Mr. Obama's agenda. On Donny Deutsch's Aug. 18 show about the Arizona town-hall meeting, the producers aired a clip of the anonymous black man carrying the so-called assault rifle -- but the network edited the tape so the man's race was obscured. Truth be damned, MSNBC anchor Contessa Brewer said, "There are questions whether this has a racial overtone. I mean, here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their waists." Another commentator on the same show worried about the "anger about a black person being president."

    MSNBC?
    NBC News?
    ABC News?
    CBS News?

    Even CNN leans left.

    Why do you think conservative flock to FOX? The left owns most of the news, they have no other choice. You just can't see it cause maybe they are not liberal enough. If MSNBC is not a liberal news outlet FOX is not a conservative outlet. If anything Patters, MSNBC is more left then FOX is right.

    No matter. Opinions and such, only our own really ever matters to oneself.

    Fox News OWNs CNN and other liberal media EVERY DAY. Fox news has more viewers than liberal TV cables. The proof is here

    Love it how libs quickly label facts as meaningless when the truth doesn't fit into their agenda or wacky world view.

    Sorry there, Pat, but FOX is the most trusted and most watched. Just as when you learned there was not tooth fairy or Santa Clause, you need to just accept it, then get over it. Sometime the truth hurts. Chalk it up to edification.

    You are correct, Fox news is unabashedly the major network of the right,and their advocacy for things like the teaparty and nirth certifikit truffers are obvious.. their agenda is right out there..

    There is no competition, which is atypical for the monopoly loving right..
