I would have no problem with your watching Fox, even though it's totally biased coverage, because it doesn't appear to be corrupting your political stance... maybe. But do you realize you are giving them ratings? And they think you watch because you are one of them! shame shame shame. I gave them up for that reason. So now I watch very little cable news because you are right-- CNN has something very boring about their format. I guess when they lost Ted Turner, they lost their zip. Give MSNBC a try (trying to remember if they have any cuties but of course, it's not like I'd notice.)

Rain, we were a Nielsen ratings household a while back and I was careful not to watch Fox News during the week we keep track of our viewing habits.

Or, I lied to Nielsen. Can't remember which.

You're right: I haven't been corrupted by Fox News yet. I also listen to conservative talk radio and, so far, have managed to keep my head from exploding.

MSNBC is OK, but often seems like Fox lite to me.

Every cable news outlet relies on "cuties" to a large extent. Again, I'd say Fox gets the highest (or lowest) marks in this regard.

At least the Naked News channel is upfront, so to speak, about its appeal.

i must admit I'd watch more of fox news except we have the dish and they can check what we watch. I wouldn't watch cavuto or gibson, ugh but liked Shepherd Smith and some of the others. I just avoid it all now but it takes some willpower as it's more fun to watch than cnn which makes even the most exciting event seem boring.

I was in a mild shock to see Allison go. She is a fantastic dancer.

Roger, I was in a major shock to see Allison go. What a travesty. Naturally I voted for her Wednesday night. Now I'm feeling bad that I didn't fire up my redial button and keep on voting for as long as I could.

Brian, I know what you mean. Oh well, I still have the hots for Heidi. I hope she wins the finale.
