53. They're the messenger of the corporate pro-fascist elements in the GOP.
I don't agree with Helen about not wanting our president to challenge them, but Fox is the mouthpiece of the hard right in the USA. If you wonder what the GOP (Greedy Obstructionist Plutocrats' party) talking points are on any given day, just tune in to Fox.

I think it is fine for the Obama Administration to call them out because they don't make even the very modest attempts to balance their coverage that our other conservative broadcast outlets do. The other major networks have been pushed to the right in the past couple of decades, and although they interview GOP leaders on military matters without challenging them for their past very destructive advice, they do include a few token liberals in their news chat shows.
