i don't watch fox news at all, but i still like that there is at least one media outlet out there that has open nationalist leanings, regardless if the majority of their news stories are dubious or sensationalized...listening to how evil america and the white male is from cnn and msnbc day in and day out gets old and boring quick.

Everything else is completely clean. Also, I say things like "Faux News" to make everyone think I'm witty and cultured, and "tea baggers" because it's so mature and hilarious!

Fox is only good for watching football and the occasional animated sitcom.

Right, except that News Corp. is not a political organization in any way. Rupert Murdoch knows that Beck/Hannity/O'Reilly sell, and that's why they're on the air.

If you looked at the content of Fox's shows (not Fox News, you ) you'd notice that there's quite a bit in there that goes against the white Christian train of thought.

Fox exists to make money, just like any other network. They're just better at it.

Every major American news source has been supporting the wars and economic policies of the US government since forever. They only debate to what degree they should be applied/supported. They're all "nationalist".

Not really. I'm looking at their lineup and they had a lot of liberals. But liberals in the US are pro-capitalist and pro-war. You can find liberal viewpoints on any channel or major newspaper.

We're not talking about making money

Beck lost most of his advertisers. He is still on the air. His #1 advertiser now is Fox running commercials for their own shows. He still gets a good number of viewers but advertisers are how shows generate money. Viewers is how they price ads.

http://mediamatters.org/blog/201007160045

And no, profit is not the main reason why they are on the air. Their job is to push agendas. Any money they might make, if they do indeed make money, is tangential. Making money on ads is small time thinking compared to swaying national opinion and directing public policy.

oh, they are good at making money, to be sure. that's why they don't need to make money everywhere. Beck is good at making money too. He probably makes just as much for himself as he does for Fox, if not more.

Sorry that it wasn't ultra-communist enough for you, but Al Frankin created it specifically to engineer a left-wing alternative to right-wing talk radio. If Air America isn't left-wing enough for you, than it's time for you to defect to Cuba.

most of the people from air america are anti-war, pro-labor. you would probably enjoy mike malloy.

http://www.mikemalloy.com/

He's about a feisty as they come.

But my favorite is Randy Rhodes. For information, facts and sources, she really can't be beat.

Her "homework" section is usually a goldmine of info.
