Cully Hamner dislikes Fox News for all the wrong reasons

Artist Hamner linked to a video of a Bill O'Reilly interview with Ted Koppel, who says Fox News is "bad" for America:

Koppel only elicits a yawn, since there's nothing he has to say I couldn't have seen coming already. He complains Fox supposedly makes it difficult for certain people in Congress to reach across the aisle and make compromise, except not every Democrat - the party I assume he's talking about - cares to do that. And Hamner thinks that's great? Sorry, it's just lethargic.

And this is another moment where I like to at least half chuckle at the weird way these comics creators overlook a dark downside to Rupert Murdoch: his relations with Saudi prince al-Walid bin Talal, who owns a huge share of NewsCorp. And it's not like Fox is innocent of negativity to conservatives (I don't even care about O'Reilly, who bores me to sleep), so assuming Hamner really does think Fox is 100 percent pro-conservative to the point he hates them for that reason, I've never understood why. If he knew about these deeper facts, would that change his opinion? Probably not, though it'd still be odd.

That said, Koppel is a crummy lot himself, and Hamner's being foolish to rely on somebody like him.

Labels: , , ,

Fox News leans right, but its detractors never complain when the other networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, HLN, and CNN) lean left.

I wouldn't be surprised if Hamner has never even watched Fox News. He may be parroting the official PC party line: "Fox bad."

And Koppel and the MSM hate Fox, not only because it provides an alternative to their leftist propaganda, but also because they hate the competition. Fox's ratings keep rising, while the other networks' ratings keep falling.

The whole big hit at the end was wrong. Look at the numbers for all of the networks they all have a dip at that time (and it is also due to people working during the day). With that said Fox still has much higher numbers during all of the time periods. The whole point he made was flawed. He was pandering to the ignorant and as you see the uninformed jumped into it with out any facts as usual.

I guess facts prove the silly statements being made about the numbers. It seems all network numbers are down at that time and Fox still is on top in each time period by far. Don't let facts get in the way of a liberal agenda loons.
I guess the bet on their liberal pals of never looking data up for themselves as usual or they are just as ignorant as the rest.


Does Ted Koppel not know what prime time is? It is Prime time because more people are home and watching, this was far from a takedown, it was just talking points without any facts.
