I had been thinking O'Reilly was overdoing his disdain for Olberman since I thought NO commentator could be THAT weird and still have a job. Hannity's one sidded comments are over the top for me,so I don't watch him any more without some balance from Colmes but he NEVER indulged in the blatant character assassination Olberman does. Pure hatred crudely expressed. I see some conservative partisanship from FOX anchors but the reportage is generally inclusive and always ends, "we report,you decde". Olberman is vicious,nasty, and poisonous while Chris Mathews is syrupy pro-liberal to the point of nausea. No wonder people are turning them off. GE/NBC is clearly a mouthpiece for the Obama admin and can only hope GE keeps funding their agit-prop operation while their ratings fail. I guess if GE reaps the windfalls looming with the adoption of cap and trade, they will have had a success. But the people want news,not propaganda. Murdoch's goals are ratings,not PC,and he is succeeding.
i have posted some of this marc has in this his post, i keep fox on most the time, but hannity i agree with marc, he interupts ppl and over talks them, it was ok when alan colmes was on with him, fox does seem to be or have more conservative shows,well some very conservative and make no bones about it. and it is a lot of shows,and some anchors seem to lean to the right is my opinion... u can't do just news 24 hours so there are alot of shows . and msnbc seems to be more liberal.i have not watch msnbc much. as fox is getting a bit far out to me, i have started back some on watching cnn. that i feel i was raised on lol, but years back, it was called by the conservatives , the "Clinton cable network", so this has been around for a long time. its also been pointed out fox mainly hires blond women, there are alot of them, lol, i do like oreilly most the time, but im at work when most all this is on anyway but i agree with marcs post, i cant do hannity, and i posted this just days ago, im sure marc may remember on cnn, the show " point counter point" that had a host from both sides, i dont think its still on but it might be, but i will not watch a show unless it has 2 different views,to keep it honest, and i can compare. its a shame there is not some way to keep political advertisements honest,be it election or just laws before the legislature they twist facts and leave things out and it pisses me off, take care
