Fox News Contributor Left Because of Bias & Glenn Beck

Jane Hall, associate professor in the School of Communication at American University, was a contributor to the network for 11 years and a frequent guest on The O’Reilly Factor and Fox News Watch. Hall stated that part of the reason she left was because of how “scary” Glenn Beck is, in addition to the partisan bias in the form of fewer debates.

HALL: No, I didn’t. The reason I left was in part because they’ve had less debates than they used to. It is a fair point to say how much debate is there on MSNBC? How many Republican strategists? We have a bifurcation of the media.

KURTZ: Wait a second. The reason you left is because you feel they have less debate than they used to. In other words, it used to be Hannity and Colmes, now it’s just Hannity. It used to be Bernie and Jane. Now it’s just Bernie.

HALL: I think there’s less debate than there was. And I’m also, frankly, uncomfortable with Beck, who I think should be called out as somebody whose language is way over the top. And it’s scary.

KURTZ: Was that a factor in your decision to leave Fox?

HALL: Yes, it was.

Fox News vs. Fox News Commentators

Many people excuse the falsehoods and misinformation found on Fox News Channel as mere opinion from commentators, or political pundits. Many a comment has been left and many an email received that tries to convince us that the “news” anchors on Fox News are somehow different; that they tell the truth; that they are the only source for truth. You get the gist. Even Fox News claims that their programming from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. on weekdays is objective.

Media Matters for America has put together a great list that puts that “fair and balanced” theory to the test. Hint: Fox News is full of Fail.

  • Hemmer advances smear that Jennings knew of “statutory rape” and “never reported it.”
  • Kelly on Sotomayor comment: “sounds to a lot of people like reverse racism.”
  • America’s Newsroom falsehood: “House Dems vote to protect pedophiles, but not veterans.”
  • Henneberg repeats right-wing myth that hate crimes bill could gag ministers.
  • Fox News’ Hemmer “keeping track of the stimulus money” — by lifting research from GOP website.
  • America’s Newsroom promotes tea party organizing info on-air and online.
  • America’s Newsroom directs viewers to “virtual tea party.”
  • America’s Newsroom pushes discredited GOP calculation of Obama’s cap-and-trade proposal.
  • America’s Newsroom falsely claimed Obama budget “4x bigger than Bush’s costliest plan.”
  • America’s Newsroom promotes McCaughey falsehood that stimulus would “hav[e] the government essentially dictate treatments.”
  • Happening Now passes off GOP press release as its own research — typo and all.
  • Happening Now posts “FOXfact[s]” about GOP budget nearly identical to GOP Rep. Ryan’s op-ed.
  • Happening Now crops clips of Obama to promote “another apology tour.”
  • Fox News presents deceptively cropped six-month-old Biden clip as new.
  • Fox’s Camerota pushes bogus stat that cap-and-trade would cost “every American family $1,761 annually.”
  • Jarrett suggests DOJ “thinks it’s OK to intimidate white people, not OK to intimidate black people at the polls.”
  • Live Desk: “Dems and Unions Push to Kill Workers’ Right to Secret Ballot.”
  • MacCallum agrees with Bachmann’s claim that Obama’s proposals are a “lurch toward socialism.”
  • “Democrat” Mark Sanford.
  • Baier smears Jennings as failing to report “sexual abuse.”
  • Wilson: Jennings “admitted” that “he failed to alert authorities when a 15-year-old boy told him he was involved in a sexual relationship with an older man.”
  • Video doctoring: Goler reverses meaning of Obama quote to falsely suggest he supports European-style health care.
  • Fox’s Garrett deceptively cropped Obama remark on judicial role.
  • Rosen: “Rats could attack us in the sewers and court systems if all of Cass Sunstein’s writings became law.”
  • Special Report packs in health care falsehoods.
  • Baier falsely suggests Obama has cited Canada as possible health reform model.
  • Special Report falsely suggests activism question deleted from questionnaire for Sotomayor.
  • “Death book” distortions abound on Fox News Sunday.
  • Wallace revives rationing bogeyman.
  • Wallace claimed Holder, confirmed 75-21, “got into office by the skin of his teeth.”
  • Wallace on Obama: “pettiness,” “childishness”; Obama admin. “biggest bunch of crybabies.”

FoxNation Uses Conservative Media Watchdog Sources

You’ve seen FoxNation‘s extreme bias on issues such as Judge Sonia Sotomayor, Sarah Palin vs. David Letterman, plus many others, all while purporting to say “no” to biased media. A closer look at where FoxNation gathers it’s news is very telling. As of this morning, nearly half of the stories promoted in FoxNation’s Media section were from NewsBusters.org, a self-described conservative media watchdog group that states it is “the leader in documenting, exposing and neutralizing liberal media bias.”

The following are the NewsBusters headlines on FoxNation:

  • Krugman: ‘Politicians From Both Parties Stray, but Dems Punish Theirs More Harshly’
  • Media Ignore EPA Suppressing Skeptical Global Warming Report
  • Time Magazine Blames California’s Mess on… Low Taxes
  • Krauthammer on Press/Obama: ‘The Hot Sex Is Over. They’re in the Cigarette Stage’
  • Oliver Stone: ‘Reagan Was a Dumb Son of a Bitch… and Bush Was Dumber’
  • Sam: It’s Hard to Forgive Bible-Thumping GOPers for Sex Scandals

TheFoxNation: Say “No” To Biased Media

This is just hilarious… The new Fox News site, The Fox Nation, has some promotional material (posters?) available as pdf files, one of which you can find below. They have the nerve to state, “IT’S TIME TO SAY NO TO BIASED MEDIA AND SAY YES TO FAIR PLAY AND FREE SPEECH.” Really, Fox News? Since yours is considered one of the most biased media outlets, I guess you’re suggesting people shouldn’t watch or visit Fox News or The Fox Nation… We agree.
