FOX may be slanted toward the right, but it's nowhere as overt as liberals like to pretend it is.Besides the radio FOX is the ONLY option for conservative issues and they create better ratings by giving the opposition airtime. The fact that Sean Hannity had a show with Leftwing loon Alan Colmes all these years is proof alone that FOX has made a better effort at providing a counter balance.
Long desperate to garner ratings and at least be competitive with Bill O'Reilly, MSNBC took to using radically Left talking points with attack dog paranoia that never relent on biased opinions. Sure it has made for an audience (so does HuffPo), but damn the facts, any sense of a counter balance and only a self-righteous leftwing loon can tolerate the likes of Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow on a daily basis. There's no sense of journalism taking place anymore at MSNBC, it's just a conservative hatefest that makes a mockery of the news.
