    Now that Jon Stewart is stepping down from the Daily Show, Fox News has decided to start taking some pot shots at him. Which in itself is fine. You are free to not like the program all you want, but they didn't give any instances to back up their accusations. New agencies need to be required to do this.

    Here is the Daily Show clip from media matters.

    Fox isn't filled with that many lies. There are some exaggerations, but both sides are equally guilty of that.

    They seemed to do a wonderful job of scamming you about the truth and facts.

    I would suggest you do your homework and understand just what Fox News is and why it is so evil and anti-American (that is if you have an enquiring mind and prefer facts over fiction, something most avowed conservatives have a very difficult time with).

    But MSNBC and Fox seem equally guilty.

    No, not even close. MSNBC might have a bit of bias, but Fox just outright lies. It's not even close to equal

    GW, I would suggest you read The Loudest Voice in the Room. It's the story of Fox News and Rager Ailes and what they really are about, hin't - it ain't facts and truth!

    Fox "news"? I never seen it? Must be a station owned by an Australian billionair, or am I mistaken? My TV does not get Australian "news".

    Yea, I totally agree. Sure, MSNBC definitely has a liberal bent, but they don't just make stuff up out of thin air and spread it to the masses. They never accused President Bush of a fraction of the things Fox accuses this President of, as well.

    Also--I would venture to guess that most die hard liberals just don't watch MSNBC, unlike die hard conservatives and Fox. Most liberals wouldn't cite MSNBC as their main source of almost all political discussions, but I can't tell you how many times I've had a conversation with a conservative where they cited Fox as their only source when discussing something.

    This just isn't remotely close to being true.

    Well, GW wears the tag of republican so that explains the blind allegiance. He's drank the koolaid. I personally Hate Fox news and I have no respect for their hateful ways. I love the Daily show with Jon Stewart. I think it's great to be on one side but to find humor with or against both sides.

    That's quite a statement. Do you have any statistics to back this up?
