This could be the definitive documentary about that great wedge issue that is Fox News. I'm not casting aspersions at the "Fair and Balanced," but you know it's true: people either love it or hate it. Last night The Daily Show ran an amusing and pointed profile of the foxy network. It's a two-parter, but it's Friday! Take a break and check it out.
OK, I admit I have been known to make a critical remark or two about Fox News around here, but it's a complicated relationship. I don't hate the notion that a network should be able to provide a specific lens by which to view the news, but I do find some of their techniques a little ham-fisted. Be conservative, that's great — just don't be cheesy about it? But then loud noises, aggressive flag/explosion graphics and Alan Colmes scare me a little, so I tend to stay away. Not because I don't agree with them, just that it's not my preferred method of news delivery.
How about you? Are you a Fox News watcher, or a member of the Outfoxed nation? Do you love it? Hate it? Don't see what the big deal is? If you're a watcher, do you think that it tells objective news, or do you like it specifically because it's news that makes an argument?
