    There’s a lot of truth to this graphic, but I would caution people about using it without contextualizing it properly. There are differences between Faux News and other networks that viewers can easily see. If you are going to blog about this to an American audience, it is a good idea to frame the discussion in a way that acknowledges those differences while exploring the underlying corporatist agendas.

    Well Fox is not a news channel, it simply isn’t, it takes on the appearance of one but is like mistaking Star Trek for a documentary on space exploration. The others are, but they all operate under the propaganda model and are owned by corporations, Olberman, Maddow are better than a smack in the face but they still do not have the open coverage of say Democracy Now. They are all engaged in the pantomime of access which dictates its own narrow range of discourse.

    True enough. That’s why some of us call it Faux News.
