It's just a matter of political opinion. Fox tends to be more blunt and "honest" with their conservatism in their opinion shows. While other stations try to come across as objective, but really are far from it. Objective journalism is gone at least in the US.
Microsoft should make any partnerships they can with news organizations etc to boost their Bing brand.

Smart move. Their ratings destroy competing cable news outlets. I'm Conservative, and admit their OPINION shows slant Right, but the opinion shows of other networks slant Left. The news portion of Fox News is pretty fair no matter what anyone tells you.

I think that its a great idea! While I may not agree with 100% of what Fox News says, if you had to pick a station, why not go to the highest rated one in the US? Sometimes I think that other news stations like to pretend that Fox News is a small band of conservative nuts while ignoring the fact that their show pales in comparison. So basically Fox News is the popular kid that people love to hate because its super popular (Apple anyone?)

The political arguement does not concern me. Those arguments are almost as pointless as arguing about mobile devices ;)
MSFT does need to get Bing as far reaching as possible. Hopping into the arm-chair CEO seat I believe they should emphasize their greatest strengths. That wonderful image of the day and Bing Rewards. Other than that a search engine is a search engine is a search engine..Support your third-party developers. There just about all we have...

For my international brothers and sisters, don't try to comprehend these posts. It's like listening to the Grateful Dead: if I have to explain, you won't understand.

Al Sharpton has made it his career to keep racism alive and cooking. CNN and MSNBC turn a blind eye to it and therefore allow him to keep on "preaching." This gives their news a very bias perspective that is almost never countered by an opposing opinion.
Fox News anchors are generally conservative, but they almost always have guests of opposing views discuss back and forth. I've actually been swayed to a more liberal view by watching some of their shows and guest discussions.

If a news station presents guest's opinions without providing objective counter arguments or guests that oppose their views, their viewers are going to be heavily swayed by those views. Most people aren't smart like us, their political opinions are heavily constructed by the news and their peers close to them.
Why do you think Apple has been so successful? Why do you think carriers are so successful at pushing Android phones? Because few people actually investigate things themselves and form opinions from their own discovery. Most people are either too lazy, or too busy with other things to take their own time on the subject.
