Why don't people on DU get as outraged over ABC News as they do Faux News?
If there was such thing as an ABC News Channel, it would be just as severely right-wing as Fox.

What's sad is that, while people have finally come to recognize Fox as a propaganda outlet (even regular Joe Blows), people still don't realize just how bad ABC is in particular.

I mean, I know CBS and NBC are as well, but ABC is JUST as bad as Fox.

2. Did the "Hezbollah Poised to Strike?" story make you sick too?
I know it did me.

3. We need to stop ALL media from being biased and
just report the news. And that goes for those on our side too like KO.

5. I don't watch either but I find Fox News on in various places I go to like
hospital waiting rooms, the gym, car repair waiting rooms and other public places that put a TV on. It used to be that they played soap operas but now it's Fox News everywhere all the time. Probably that's why people get more outraged.

7. I've given up on trying to get the "news" on American media.
Fortunately, there's real news coverage available on the internet that doesn't involve chirpy talking heads with brilliant teeth selling entertainment between commercials.

8. I never watch either. And remember, some people on DU
blocked, boycotted or contacted ABC over their bs 9/11 piece that tried to rewrite the lead up to the attacks. :shrug:

9. Sometimes I think ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN are paying for Fox News
Fox News presents such an openly biased slant, and, therefore, people's anger, that the other news stations get a free pass. As long as everyone stays focused on Fox, they can do what they want. Nice lightning rod.
