GOP TV aka Fox News: Anything BUT Fair and Balanced

I just watched the documentary called "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism".

It was an eye opener. I already knew Fox News is GOP-Religion-TV but I didn't realize how many devious little tricks Fox is sneaking into their "news" show to push their religious agenda.

The documentary suggests that media conglomerates have gotten too big and government should break them up. As a strong believer in ethical free enterprise, I don't agree. Let the market take care of itself provided everyone has equal rights and those rights are equally protected.

Personally, I don't have a problem with Fox News being one sided with a strong religious agenda. I do, however, have a big problem with them claiming to be "fair and balanced"! It's an intentional, premeditated, bald-faced lie. It's deceptive advertising. It's unethical. In general, religious fanatics are the most unethical, immoral, and dangerous people on earth.
