I did agree with Beaker’s mention on biased media but I also have to agree with Snowth’s post here. I mean cool you like Fox but do keep in mind they can be just as biased as well.
It's pretty much impossible to find news about politics that isn't biased.

I'm just going to say this: the last time the economy really crashed was when Bush drove us into a recession at the tail-end of his last term . . . and even now, Trump has been crippling the economy by making sure the wealthy get wealthier, while practically bleeding the middle and working class dry . . . but in those scenarios, the GOP was never the least bit concerned about the economy. Now with this pandemic going on, suddenly the idea of the economy crashing is like their biggest nightmare. What gives?
You do realize that despite your biases the economy was going gangbusters before the coronavirus pandemic, right? And to say that the GOP was never concerned about the economy is just, well, I don't even know what to say to such an ill-informed statement.

I wonder if you were around in 1979 if you’d give Jimmy Carter a free pass. Double-digit inflation and unemployment, the first big crash of the auto and steel industries, and a big crisis in Iran that skyrocketed oil prices and botched negotiations that kept hostages captive for 444 days.

Wanna climb into the time machine and see what I saw?

Three guesses and the first two don’t count. But someone with an axe to grind with the current administration.

That's pretty much the equivilent of saying, "I'm not a racist, but black people. . . ." Or, "I'm not a sexist, but women. . . ." Or even, "I'm not a homophobe, but gay people. . . ."
I like how you edited my post when I said I also watch NBC.

I'm not saying Fox can not be biased at all. I just stated I watch Fox and NBC which Snowth neglected to say.
