Fox News

Compare reports and then decide

Because you gave your columnist one-quarter page to denigrate Fox News, (Sid Schwab, "Crazy like a Fox (News)") I thought perhaps your readers who are not Fox viewers might appreciate another opinion ... fair and balanced you know! I frequently watch Fox News, and I, too, sometimes disagree with their opinions, but not their honesty in reporting. Having lived on this planet for 77 years I have learned not to believe everything I see, hear or read when it comes to news reporting by the media. When truly important issues are reported, such as the Benghazi story, I also view reporting of the same story on the major networks. And guess what? I then decide which reporting makes the most sense to me! I have found that as a rule only Fox gives the full story.
Your columnist doesn't deny that Fox News is brilliant, and more persuasive than any media source in history, and I agree. Truth in reporting should prevail. I totally disagree with his assessment that Fox News is the most destructive force in America because of its dishonest and non-stop propagandizing.
