I don't think Fixed News should be banned. It's simply because it is fixed that people hate it. People on both sides can take bias, but there's a limit. Faux News has a habit of having bias some greasy you'd have to wipe off the screen. There's nothing fair about the coverage. Those statistics you posted, are fair game. Ask people you bump into often to watch Fixed News, then MSNBC. One to the left, and one to right. And you'd find out that Faux News is more biased. And is nothing more than a who can scream the loudest competition followed up the Interrupt/Disrupt/Insult tactic so others can't get their words in.
To further my proof of how bias Fixed News is. Remember that Ashly Todd story? Even before the facts came out about the report, the idiots from Drudge Report and Fixed News apparently posted the story up first. Causing a massive whirlwind of comments like...

Let's see if the MSM picks this one up. NOT! If it would have been someone with a B.O. sticker that got mugged, this would have been all over the news by now.

I pray she will be okay. Just goes to show how far these leftist liberals will go! Also, I personally take offense to Obama's comments regarding PA's Bible and gun holding conservatives. I am a proud Christian and Obama is clearly trying to be the Anti-Christ!

WHERE'S THE HATE CRIME ACCUSATION? WHY DOES AP NOT TELL US THE RACE OF THE MUGGER? WHY DOES THE "MAINSTREAM MEDIA" TRY TO COVER UP THE OVERWHELMING PERCENTAGE OF VIOLENT CRIMES COMMITTED BY BLACK CRIMINALS - SO SOCIETY CAN DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM, INSTEAD OF AVOIDING IT....... AFRAID TO BE CALLED, WHAT ELSE! - RACIST!!!!!

Why hasn't this been reported on ABC, CBS, NBC or MSNBC? The only place that you find any information on this is Fox News & Drudge. You know that if this was an Obama volunteer it would be all over the place. It will only get worse if the Democrats should win & enforce the fairness doctrine.

BO supporters believe they are above the law...just like their candidate.
That was before the facts came in. Then the idiotic Executive Vice President of Faux News wrote on his on blog...
Moment Of Truth (Posted from his blog on the 23rd of October)
It had to happen.
Less than two weeks before we vote for a new president, a white woman says a black man attacked her, then scarred her face, and says there was a political motive for it.
Ashley Todd, a 20-year-old white volunteer for John McCain's presidential campaign, says she was mugged at an ATM machine in Pittsburgh (my hometown) by a big black man. She further says he threw her down, then disfigured her by carving the letter "B" into her face with a sharp implement when he saw that she supported McCain, not Barack Obama.
Part of the appeal of, and the unspoken tension behind, Senator Obama's campaign is his transformational status as the first African-American to win a major party's presidential nomination.
That does not mean that he has erased the mutual distrust between black and white Americans, and this incident could become a watershed event in the 11 days before the election.
If Ms. Todd's allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee.
If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain's quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.
For Pittsburgh, a city that has done so much to shape American history over the centuries, another moment of truth is at hand.
^Ends right there
Two days later the truth came out. Let's look at the comments, shall we?
Hey Fox News! How come this story isn't on your front page anymore??? A little embarassed at the spin you put on this along with comments made by your staff...maybe? Fair and balance my a$$!
I love how Fox disallowed comments on the updated story. Guess no backlash wanted, huh?
"It had to happen," John Moody, a news executive at FOX, wrote on his blog Thursday night. "If Ms. Todd's allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee," Moody wrote. "If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain's quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting." So, it's turned out to be a hoax. Where's your story on how "McCain's quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting" Can't wait to see it in print. Oh, I forgot -- you're not allowing comments on the updated, CORRECT story, and you've taken it off your "headlines
When this story broke yesterday, anti-Obama posters were all over it and could hardly wait to express their contempt and hatred toward Barack Obama and those who support him, despite the fact that the photo showed a backwards "B" on her face that could only be viewed properly in a mirror. FOXNews almost gleefully ran the story all day long. Yesterday, I said in my post that I would wait for the facts to come out and that I was sure that the Obama campaign had nothing to do with it. Well, now we all know that she lied. I can't help but wonder if the situation was reversed and a Black female Obama supporter made the same accusation against a White alleged McCain supporter who had allegedly assaulted her, would the reaction by yesterday's posters have been the same? Would they have been so quick to believe her? I think clearly not!
These are the same people that visit that bullshit site daily for news. Now I've seen you around this forum, you do a good job defending Conservatives, but with a slant that big, and in a world filled with ignorant people of course Fixed News seems like a reliable source for news. I'll leave it like this. I've wasted enough bone marrow.
