Re: Um, NY Times Critical Thinking

Fox News is a legitimate news organization with right wing opinion/commentary. But having news together with opinion is an old tradition from print journalism. Since FNC has distinct programs, any reasonable person should be able to discern which is opinion and which is news, the same way there's an editorial page.

Now there is a right wing slant to their news product, which doesn't necessarily affect the factual content and mainly manifests itself in what stories they choose to prioritize. I mean they called Arizona correctly days before anyone else did and I'm sure the right leaning people in the news department were pained by it but they couldn't contradict their polling department. A similar thing happened in 2012 when Megyn Kelly walked over to the polling desk and asked why they were so sure that Obama had won while Karl Rove was being interviewed and disputed the results.

OANN and Newsmax OTOH are pure propaganda.
