Fox News is advertizing themselves as America's Election Headquarters. Why?

What gives them the right to this claim? Was there some sort of competition among cable new providers for this title that I'm not aware of?


Sorry you don't like my question Lou G, but I think it's a lot better than those "do you think I'm pretty" ones that clog up Yahoo Answers

    FOX News obviously has a very high opinion of themselves and they are trying to sell it to the American people. It's going to be a hard sell. They have been discredited so many times in the past that they have lost most of their credibility. Most serious viewers no longer consider them a viable news source as a result of their one sided reporting. One might as well tune in "Entertainment Tonight" and watch Mary Hart.

    How can one make a voting decision when they are only getting one view of the issues?

    Probably because Americans who actually like America prefer to watch the balanced reporting that can be seen on Fox. It's geared towards people who can think for themselves, not just absorb whatever toxins Keith Olbermann is trying to brainwash them with.

    you know what, even Hilary Clinton said that foxnews was the fairest with election coverage, thats why MSNBC is so far behind in the ratings because their reporters are telling the public that they should vote for Obama, the American people aren't stupid, we don't like reporters telling us what we should think about the candidate, we can figure that out for ourselves!

    I say human beings are entitled to observe what they elect. would not rely which one, the outcomes are the same. they do no longer come to a variety the election basically checklist the outcomes like all of the others.

    They all say that. My Local News Station says the same thing. I guess because they are reporting it, they feel they are the only ones.

    Pretty much the same as calling yourself xg6.

    Means nothing.

    Isn't there anything, and I mean a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g else you could find a little more worthy of your concern?

    Sorry, xg6, but it isn't any better than those other questions. It's like asking, "Why does McDonald's say 'I'm Loving It'? Who are they to make this claim?"

    It's their network. And besides, it is the most watched cable news network in the US...

    Fox also claimed that they are "Fair and Balance"

    it all bullshit! Hypocrite.

    how about Fox news, the CEO is once worked with Bush.

    goto youtube.com click Fox censored or censorship, you find all kind of hypocrises.

    All of the networks have different slogans they go by. It's called advertising.

    It's like IHOP calling themselves the International House of Pancakes.

    Actually, there is more truth to that than Fox's claim....
