Accuracy in Media

The Washington Examiner is reporting that the supposed bastion of conservative news, the Fox News Channel, has veered a little further to the left by hiring Jesse Jackson’s eldest daughter, Santita, who is a Chicago talk-radio personality.

Jackson will join a growing legion of left-wingers at Fox that includes Jehmu Greene and Sally Kohn. Greene is the former president of the Women’s Media Center, which was founded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem, and Kohn is a former senior strategist for the Soros-funded Center for Community Change.

Fox’s moves to beef up its liberal lineup continue to confound conservatives who see no need for the top-rated cable news network to give liberals even more of a voice than they currently have. They already have MSNBC and CNN, along with the rest of the mainstream media.

If this hiring trend continues, Fox runs the risk of alienating its conservative audience to the point that they will look elsewhere for their news, and eventually end Fox’s long run as the top cable news network.

    Oh yeah, Fox News sure is the right-wing media.

    Fox news is the only channel I watch. I have no desire to listen to Jesse Jackson’ s daughter or any left leaning liberal. Goodbye Fox

    I am a liberal and I still wont watch or believe foxnews. home of stalwarts like hannity, Palin. I hope this will allow for a bit more honesty. We shall see.

    Fox news has become more of a gossip channel anyhow. The online “news” is just becoming a bunch of crap. It used to be the one to go to. No longer. Just continue the dumming down of America a little quicker.

    I will guess that Soros or Obama has something hanging over Fox as they now have so many progressives (communists) on their programs. And these people are not middle of the road progressives, but hard and aggressive liberals. It is so sad to see Fox change to being a liberal station before our very eyes, just when we need a conservative voice more than ever.

    What the heck is going on.

    At least we have Beck and his network. They are doing a good job and I really enjoy his radio and GBTV.

  • I am conflicted on this issue. On one hand, bringing on these liberal commentators gives the FOX commentators a chance to dispute and discredit them “live” rather than as talking points later. However, the new so called pundits are so damn annoying that I want to change the channel rather than listen to their liberal-bot leftie knee jerk “me me me” “have some Kool-aid” “conservatives are all evil” crap.

    “Fair & Balanced” requires voices from the other-side. Not to worry, as long as Howard the dim Dean tells everyone that the GOP hate everyone the less credibility the DEMs have.

  • Buddy Kolander

    Jehmu Greene, Sally Kohn, Alan Colmes, etc. all provide a needed contrast to logical conservative thought and dialogue. They provide a much needed reminder, albeit annoying, reminder of why we need a channel like Fox that is not afraid to show both sides of an issue.

    Wow. I get it now fox has now been corrupted by those who want to see the emergence of a new world order. And all along I thought they were just another biased media outlet that works to make non-conservatives look like the purveyors of evil that all conservatives seem to think we are. Omg they have infiltrated the bubble… Run. Does everything have to be apocalyptic?

    I wondered at the time that Beck left Fox News Channel why he did so. I have since realized that there are those who seek to control all media and the message they provide. Evil has a hard time existing in the face of the truth or at least with the kind of control it would like. Unfortunately, it seems Fox News has begun to succumb to money from the far left— such as”Spooky Dude” as Beck referred to him. As a christian, I believe the one ultimately behind it is the ultmate radical whom Saul Alinskey dedicated his book to–Lucifer. Unfortunately, his influence reaches those on the left AND the right.

    I have been a loyal Fox viewer for years and accepted that they had to have some liberals on for balance. However, when they started bringing radical racists like Sharpton, Greene, and now the final straw, Jackson on, I can no longer watch the shows the so called “contributors” are on. Sharpton is is just an ignorant race hustler. Jehmu Greene is both a racist and a socialist. Jackson is hateful and a racist just like her worthless father. Fox had better rethink what they are doing or they will end up like NBC.

  • If she get’s low ratings she won’t last. Fox News is about making a buck.
