Why is the news I watch on television more opinions rather than facts? Fox news is one of the most biased news television programs I've ever watched.

@Ferostie,
Bill O'Reilly does not report the NEWS. He is a political commentator.

You should understand the difference.

Fox News at 6:00 (Eastern Time) called SPECIAL REPORT is an actual NEWS broadcast. Try watching that and then come back with an opinion.

@Ferostie,
Fox News has slowly morphed into Faux News. They've migrated from reporting the news, to being entertainment. Kinda how MTV morphed from music videos to Real World.

MSNBC has the same problem, IMO.

CNN is slightly better, but they're slipping.

If you want news, I'd suggest NPR or BBC.

@DrewDad,
You are talking about entire networks.

Each network does have programming dedicated to reporting the news.

Yet, you throw a blanket over an entire network due to particular programming that is really commentary.

Many TV stations mix News broadcasts with Commentary Shows (entertainment). The first thing to do is to differentiate the two things. And if Fox TV bothers you, vote with your clicker and stop watching it.

Don't ask me why, it's just a feeling I get, but Bill O'Reilly strikes me as the kind of guy who doesn't wipe his ass all that well.

@rosborne979,
I get all my news from Fox, I find Fox news to always stay on task in reporting accurate and factual news coverage. I think of Bill Oreilly as the Walter Cronkite of modern reportage.

Ouch. I was gonna say "me too" Wink But for Walter's sake, I can't even make myself mutter the words.

First of all, O'Reilly is a political commentator and free to state his own political opinions. His show discusses news, but doesn't pretend to be a newscast.

Secondly, all anyone has done here is throw around unsubstantiated adjectives. Therefore, I'll give my own unsubstantiated opinion - Fox News is no more biased than the other news shows, but is simply biased to the right instead of the left.
