    I don't care about "Trump" nor his aforementioned "voters".

    I'm not fond of Trump's anti-Amazon rhetoric, for example.

    Fox News is center-left on the political spectrum, if anything.

    We don't have an actual right wing party, as per traditional conservatism, just a center left party (Republicans) and a crazy party (Democrats). Nor does Europe - a handful of crazy parties, and a few "conservative" ones, which are more centrist or center-left than anything.

    He said that ^ :lol:

    Absolutely, Judge Jeanine, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, the Fox-n-Friends clowns and every other dingbat that dominates Fox News Programing is a wild-eyed LIB-RUL!! Face it, now that Shep Smith has departed, the ONLY Fox regular who could be considered a "journalist" with centrist positions is Chris Wallace.

    • Overall, we rate Fox News strongly Right-Biased due to editorial positions and story selection that favors the right. We also rate them Mixed factually based on poor sourcing and the spreading of conspiracy theories that later must be retracted after being widely shared. Further, Fox News would be rated a Questionable source based on numerous failed fact checks by hosts and pundits.

    Right, the website in question has its own bias (the sources deemed "least biased", such as Christian Science Monitor tell you what it's using as its reference point), as I presume any website does, though it is at least up-front about its methodologies.

    It deems CNN and MSNBC strongly left-biased, as well as host of other sources in question, much as it is biased toward "mainstream" media in general, as opposed to "newer" media such as Wikipedia, "RationalWiki", and others. Most media, 'left or right' is a poor intellectual substitute for reading books, and this is no open secret.

    In regards to "conspiracy theories", not all conspiracy theories are "absurd", as in "alien NWO lizardman", nor are the wrong - Watergate was a conspiracy theory, much as the allegations of Trump colluding with Russia are - so it would be interesting to see what its methodologies for describing conspiracy theories, and the counter-arguments it is using against them are.
