    Fox has always played both sides, even if more commentators are conservatives or big biz pubs than libs.

      Brit Hume nailed it as to why FNN keeps growing.

      Mr. Hume added, “Oh, and covering candidates of both parties is part of the job of a news channel.”

      And L-Boy this is what you and your friends from Too Hot, MSNBC, CNN...will NEVER understand about Conservatives...WE LIKE to hear both sides. We like to debate...with LOGIC and FACTS not PC Talking Points.

      It is the LEFT who stifles thought and open discussion ....from Universities to the Media.

      Mayor Pete helped himself. Any Democrat who goes on FOX News does. BUT America will not vote for him in the General.

      And on a side note…Chris Wallace is no Bret Baier. I stopped watching Fox News Sunday.

        The Murdoch kids started this mess a few years ago. If someone was smart they would start another network more like Fox was a few years back. The kids even have the Judge parroting lefty nonsense about legal stuff now threatening to take that paycheck if he doesn't. They started that when he told us that the Brits were in on the spying against Trump's campaign which we now know is true.

        Chris Wallace has become unwatchable when it comes to anything Trump and not because he’s good or clever, he’s just unhinged. Won’t even let people answer questions when he doesn’t like the answer, just starts cutting them off with another question

          BTW in case you missed it Hume was ***** slapping Trump:

          I will say some of the actual newspeople on Fox are respectable. But I don't think showing both sides increases their popularity. People prefer consistency of message and affirmation of their own POV. But to the extent diverging figures are allowed to speak it does provide a useful foil.

          Much the same as when I'm here the posting activity in the forum seems to perk up. :grin:

            No . people watch the news to get THE NEWS...That was the way it used to be.

            I dont need some talking head confirming my beliefs...that is where the LEFT lives.

            Christ confirms my beliefs. I base almost everything on the Gospels and the Constitution

              Something you'd never see CNN or MSNBC do to a left winger. Again, fair and balanced............................and establishment.

                Buttegieg is impressive. He may wind up as the VP candidate unless they feel they have to go with a woman.

                  Disagree completely.

                  I want intelligent discussion of the topic from all perspectives.

                  I hope Buttplug selects a good communist to round out the ticket. America is on the edge of it's seat to get to know the First Husband. Embarrassing.

                    In what way? He's a do nothing, communist, Peter Puffer that has screwed up a college town as a Mayor......
                    Please tell me what he's done that is impressive? He's not even old enough to know what's really going on in the World or to run a country or economy...

                    Again,
                    This is why the Left does not understand and why your polls are so wrong.

                    I agree totally with Augusta and I am sure most on this site do also.

                    And L-BOY, this is another reason why Trump will be POTUS in 2020...most people DO NOT fall far Left.

                      Some good points, but here is what I mean. I dismiss all candidates that spew crap for votes. That eliminates almost all. Most of Pete's statements sound like his honest opinion, even if wrong. Mostly, he talks about real problems instead of PC junk. That is not much, but imo it sets him apart from most Democratic candidates.

                        Just got another email from 'management pundits' and other academics that say...and I quote... Use less logic and more emotion to win people over to your ideas.
                        I assume this is your philosophy? I have been explicitly and deliberately against this since I was a Junior-Senior in College. It's a horrible way to behave.

                          Susan Estrich and Juan Williams were to of my favorite on Fox. I probably agree w about 2% of what they say. I hate listening to Hannity even though I agree with most of what he says.

                          I think you project a lot.

                          Fox Five (or wjatever it is called) is one of the most popular shows and it jever agrees with any one persons point of view.

                            Well, 50% of the people are feelers not thinkers. It just is what it is.
