    The difference may be that some other news-providers at least try to appear legitimate and unbiased.
    Off course it is brainwash, too, but such a low-quality-brainwash like on fox is insulting. Also, to think about that there are people who fall for that kind of **** really lets me become misantrophic.

    The BBC isn't a print medium. Its the British Broadcasting Corporation, their shaping of the news agenda is done through the language they couch news announcements in, the guests they select to interview and most importantly don't select for interview etc...

    The main sources of news via radio and TV for a majority of the population are BBC Radio 4 and BBC One news.

    I think it's insulting that all these news agencies claim to present the public with the unbiased results of investigative journalism when they actually present them with a non-stop stream of editorials. They're all guilty. Every single fucking one of them.

    I'd have more respect for Fox News if they'd just go ahead and drop their whole "Fair and balanced" mantra. If you want to be the Rush Limbaugh network, that's fine. Just be honest about it. Same goes for the Communist News Network and all the others.

    They have print articles online, and video clips and audio clips I believe. Ironically I just read a print article on us immigration that was very straight with just the facts. I was actually pleased.

    Which one? In what way was it pleasing?

    The bias is most evident in the broadcast news, because that's what is the majority of their output.

    They shape the debate by back loading the author when it suits them to obfuscate who said it and only front loading it when it doesn't eg.

    Reforms to the NHS will mean longer waiting times and more cancer deaths said a Labour MP today.

    Conservative Home Sec Theresa May says that crime has fallen over the last year.

    Tory donor and businessman Sir Gideon Beauchamp-Coombes claims that the Conservative governments economic policies are helping to fuel growth and create jobs.

    Agreed that there may be some biased reporting from the BBC, but not at anywhere near the level of Fox.
    The "Fair and Balanced" tag line is the biggest laugh of all.

    In fairness, Fox I assume is not funded by the tax payer where as the BBC is, which I think makes the biased reporting of the BBC all the worse.

    Do any other countries in the world get taxed on their TV's to support a national TV channel?

    Judoka uk,

    On a phone, it was on mobile site, about us immigration numbers from mexico.

    Pleasing for news story = just facts as little bias a author and editor can manage.

    Germany does. For that, we get biased news - one Channel, ARD, is more or less in the hand of the SPD (equals more or less the labour party), the other big channel, ZDF, is strongly controlled by CDU (conservatives).
