Fox News – a bastion of liberals.

And all this time I thought Fox was “fair and balanced”. But apparently not. According to Roger Ailes-  President of Fox News and chairman of Fox Television. ((and former media consultant for Nixon, Reagan, and Bush sr. )

According to Ailes recent speech at the University of North Carolina, Fox News only employs one conservative.  “Well, first, I separate out news from programming. If you’re talking about programming, we noticed that all the talk shows on the other networks basically had progressive or liberal talk show hosts. We have one conservative on FOX News, Sean Hannity. Quite open about it, that’s what he is, that’s what he does, that’s his framework, that’s where he comes from. Others tend to be libertarians or populists or you can’t really tell.”

Then in his lecture at Ohio University he says that Fox News employs 24 liberals- that’s right, 24:

“Ailes defended his network, saying he was not politically biased compared with competitors MSNBC and CNN. Ailes said he employs 24 “liberals,” which distinguishes him from those networks who feature fewer dissenting opinions”

Wow. a 24:1 ration. Liberals the vast majority on Fox News. I guess, more then anything, this illustrates how very, very far to the right things have shifted when folks like Bill O’Reilly , Eric Bolling, and Andrea Tantaros are labeled as “liberals”

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

    The man lives in a dream world of his own creation. He also claimed that in 15 years of broadcasting, Fox never had to retract a story. “they should have” but never had to.
