    I think what I'd say to that is the goal of journalism should be to be correct, not to promote either ideology. The closer you get to that, the better. And it's usually not good when ownership gets involved in news decisions.

    Are you including Fox News and the Fox O & O's in that 95%? Why would President Trump ever agree to be on 60 Minutes if it was "fake" or left wing biased? Their is a lot of the news I don't agree with but if they follow "good journalism" practices like double check the sources it is what it is.

    I don't think Channel 5 (a Fox O&O) is biased. At the end of the day they're selling eyeballs, which requires an attractive product.

    I think you're right...the difference between Fox and Sinclair is Fox keeps politics on its cable channel, and leaves the stations alone.

    And Yes you are correct that Fox confines the politics over on the national cable channel. See here are a few examples where Fox did not side with President Trump and the Coal Industry Superpac/Lobbyist over climate change. But These segments were produced for the Fox O&O's in California (KTTV, KTVU and KTVU+) where its staff and news directors did reports showing the connection between climate change and the increased size of Wildfires in California.

    Also Fox O&O division did these segments for the demos of these markets as mentioned in another thread.

    But the talks about WSB-TV going to Sinclair is yet to be seen and confirmed here given how Chris Ripley PR people tried to spin it as a possible deal

    The reason Fox News Channel became a voice for conservatives was the hiring of Roger Ailes to create the network's format. Rupert Murdoch is known to be somewhat liberal but of course was in business to make money so was open to whatever programming would accomplish that. Like the ideology or not, creating Fox News was an amazingly successful idea by Ailes. Its ratings and revenue have been through the roof almost since the start.
