Is seen in just how many people hate and despise Fox News and dismiss it as bilge and word drool and right wing hate and stupidity. And yet, you know what? Democratic leaders and politicians still appear on various Fox programming, especially the Sunday Morning show with Chris Wallace.
I'll admit, I'm no fan of Fox. I've always cautioned against confusing Fox's brand of Conservatism with Christianity. It's more libertarian, with some pop culture liberalism thrown in. Especially the old sex-it-up tendency. After all, is there a woman on Fox who doesn't wear low cut tops with impossibly short skirts?
Not that the other networks are any better. Many of them are willing to be just the same, though usually with a focus more toward women (having stories about gorgeous hunk guys and male models and actors as general fare). Different demographics I guess. But I used to say that everything I wanted to know about porn stars, I learned on Fox.
Nonetheless, though Fox is clearly to the political right, it obviously has credible journalistic qualifications on some of its shows and with some of its contributors. No less so than other networks. I don't watch it regularly, though I do try to touch base along with other networks just to get a feel of the modern television media. But it's worth noting that those who simply hate Fox and dismiss it as completely stupid and hateful either don't watch Fox, or live in a world of such hyper-partisanship that reality can't break through their tribal loyalties.
