Is Fox More Dangerous In What They Report Or In What They Don't Report?

Reported by Donna - November 7, 2005

After watching Studio B with Shepard Smith I usually turn the channel (quickly) to CNN. I can only take Fox in small doses and certainly not Cavuto. (Kudos to fellow News Hound, Melanie, who monitors Cavuto)

If you watched today, George Bush was hardly mentioned except for a mid news report from Jane Skinner that simply said, "President Bush received a warm welcome in Panama."

When I switched over to CNN, I heard a different story.

CNN talked about how in Panama it was more telling on what the president didn't answer than what he did. Apparently reporters asked him about the secret locations of prisons and whether the Red Cross should be admitted to all places where detainees are held. The president didn't answer either question.

Comment: Now, if you are a Fox viewer you get the all warm and fuzzy feeling that your president got a warm reception in Panama. If you seek out other sources you would see that the president is being questioned about the secret prisons, the Red Cross and chose not to answer these questions.

The question of torture has been out there big time today and Studio B didn't cover this. A new story came out that 5 U.S. soldiers were charged with abuse of detainees. Instead we got a steady dose of the twister, the fires in France and a special self promoting segment on Greta and her newest missing girl - a teacher who was a former beauty queen! And, before I forget, we had a Fox News Alert that Terrell Owens will not be returning to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Is Studio B news or Inside Edition?
