    Who the hell watches Fox Noise anyway?

      It’s the most watched news channel in the US.

        well it ought not to be.

      2. Correction, it’s the most watched CABLE news in the US. Fox doesn’t have a fraction of the audience that the three main broadcasting networks do.

    2. It’s 30 seconds more than their coverage on world news.

  2. It doesnt surprise me, Fox have shown themselves to be run by bigots before. It would be fantastic if they were forced to cover it in a positive way.

      What can we expect? it’s owned by Rupert Murdoch! The BBC doesn’t report much that’s positive about it either, certainly NO balanced programming around the issue and I heard and read nothing about Brazil being mentioned this week, but then it’s run by conservative religious nutters, could never be impartial of course let alone balanced.

      I strongly oppose having to pay for a licence to an organisation that doesn’t provide adequate and responsible coverage of gay people but instead gives limitless coverage to anti-equal marriage haters.

        Well said Robert. Any news coverage is typically one sided and grudging, whether broadcast or online. Their apology to Help for Heroes says everything about the direction of their quality as a news organisation, sadly.

    It doesn’t end with network news.

    I talked with my brother in Alaska and asked if his city’s newspaper had reported on the Minnesota victory. Nothing on line and nothing in print.

    That’s pretty odd as a good number of Alaskans come from Minnesota and it would have reader interest.

    Editors making choices on what is news — a bit like what goes in the Queen’s speech, I suppose. Troubling when people don’t know social change is all around them.

    No news = no change.

    I thought the BBC was bad but this is awful. Everything is political!
