Why Fox News is THE Republican News Channel
Fox News isn’t a Legitimate News channel because they are biased against Democrats and President Obama. For instance, Fox News has organized anti-government rallies and “tea party” events.
Fox News always favors Republicans and is known to be THE Republican channel. Here’s why…
Roger Ailes, president of Fox News, in the Fox TV control room. (Helayne Seidman)
Roger Eugene Ailes (born May 15, 1940) is president of Fox News Channel, and chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group. Ailes was a media consultant for Republican presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush and for Rudy Giuliani’s first mayoral campaign (1989).
Per an article at gawker, a memo entitled “A Plan for Putting the GOP on TV News,” buried in the the Nixon library details a plan between Ailes and the White House to bring Pro GOP stories to television networks around the country. (see gawker complete story)
There can be no doubt that Roger Ailes dream has been realized in Fox News
In a Rolling Stone story, Tim Dickinson tells how onetime Nixon henchman Roger Ailes built Fox News into the most profitable propaganda machine in history. Ailes has amassed enormous power in the Republican Party – and the country – by pioneering a new form of political campaign, one in which Fox functions as a “giant soundstage created to mimic the look of a news operation,” disguising GOP talking points as journalism.
On the day after the president gave his State of the Union address in January, Fox News swung into full campaign mode, hammering Obama with five GOP talking points that have come to define the budget debate. The baldfaced distortions came not just from a parade of Republican politicians – who outnumbered Democrats by 3 to 1 – but from the network’s own anchors.

As shown in the above videos, Fox News is clearly responsible for spreading hate against President Obama. Why does Fox News hate Obama? This article gives a possible explanation – http://voices.yahoo.com/why-fox-news-hates-obama-6570698.html?cat=75
Over 10 million people watched the Fox News coverage of the 2012 election, but when President Obama spoke, more than 80% of them tuned out. The fact that 80% of the Fox News audience switched away speaks volumes not only about who these Fox News viewers are, but also their unwillingness to listen to the President’s message. That should be no surprise since most of Fox’s programs preach hate against President Obama. You can read the entire article here
People who watches Fox News has many reasons to hate President Obama. Most voted for John McCain and Mitt Romney and are angry they lost the 2008 & 2012 elections. Others hate Obama because he’s black and cannot accept the idea of having a black president.
Anti-Obama hate and misinformation spread by Fox has contributed greatly to dividing this country.
Fox News main agenda is 2 fold:
1. Delivering a Republican agenda to as many people as possible to influence the way people vote and election outcomes. Remember how Republican campaign strategist Karl Rove was on Fox the night of the 2012 election? He’s been a regular on Fox for years. Note how they are friendly to Republican congressmen and conservative ideas while critical of President Obama and Democrats.
2. Ratings and viewership.
The more people watches Fox, the more money they can demand and bring in for advertising. Fox has won on litigation which establishes that they do not have to tell the truth. Fox can legally LIE. Sensationalizing everything helps get viewer hooked into watching them on a regular basis and brainwashes them into hating Obama and Democrats, who are for the middle class and the poor.
When Middle Class and Poor vote for Republicans, they are voting against their own interests. So it takes a lot of false information, brainwashing and propaganda to make people “shoot themselves in the foot”.
Fox News is NOT Fair or Balanced
Fox News slogan “Fair and Balanced” is clearly false advertising. Proof is how they often report negatively about President Obama and Democrats, while favoring Republican policies and Republican politicians.
