Fox News is clearly the best and most balanced TV news source available, and the loony left just can’t stand it since it does not conform to their preconceived ideas of what they would like, no – demand - what other people should think.

It’s really sad to read some of the comments that come bursting out just as soon as a non far-left idea is expressed on TV news or here on Thaivisa.

Actually, my dude, it is really sad to realize that people are actually fooled by the format of FOX to think that it is a real news station. They have news anchors and talking heads wearing suits, that's journalism, I guess! Never mind that they ignore clear facts, take people's statements out of context, cherry-pick content for ideological purity, hire commentators who play big-time on people's fears, and play up hysterical claims as if they were facts or real issues to be debated, I suppose that's all fair and balanced, right?

Regarding mainstream media, anyone who thinks it's "far-left" must either have changed the definition of "left" or not know what communism, bolshevism, the SDS in '60s America and the like is. Such people must not be able to define socialism, or even know about that most mild of American far-lefties, Noam Chomsky, who is dismissed as fringe by most of the "mainstream" (including by me on most of his published opinions).

Apologize for the long sentences. Stream of consciousness, it just flows out, you know. FOX News is a pet peeve, please bear with my rant just a bit, I don't do many.

When I came to live here it was amazing to me that the Thai cable companies don't seem to know the difference between CNN and FOX, as if they were anywhere near co-equal. I'm no big fan of CNN, going with the trend these days it seems out to entertain more than edify, but FOX is so clearly on a political/political entertainment mission that it's hard to see how anyone could miss it. But clearly, some people do miss it. I can only think they understand neither journalistic standards nor what "far-left" ideas really are. I'm sure I haven't burst your bubble, walt et al., but I wish something would.

I stayed in a new hotel in Payttaya on Saturday Night and was surprised that Fox News wasn't on the cable either, although a evangalistic Christian channel was , one that i had never seen before but i learnt alot about the Muslims (said tongue in cheek). The thing i like about Fox is that far from being fair and balanced it does ,however, give an insight to how a lot of Westerners (not only folks from the USA ) are thinking and it gives them a chance to vent what they feel as injustices. Fox is actually becoming more moderate when compared with Tea Party and Dominionist politics and it is important to understand all points of view and perspectives even if u do not agree to them .To me, watching Fox News falls under the rule from the "Art of War" and that is to Know your enemy.
