Rupert Murdoch talks Fox News, CNN

MurdochLove it or hate it, there can be no argument: Fox News exists. Does that fact make our lives better or worse? I am sure you could find many people who come down firmly on either end of that spectrum.

But how many people think it is really balanced and fair?

Rupert Murdoch seems to. The News Corp. chairman, Murdoch recently talked about Fox News, as well as the changes that are going on at his rival CNN under the leadership of Jeff Zucker.

"You're seeing big changes going on at CNN now, they've got a new head of it, they're popularizing it, if you like," Murdoch said. "Instead of having Ted Turner saying, 'This is the New York Times of the air,' they're not -- they're CNN. They're using helicopters and running around and being much more pop, if you will. "I don't say they're politically any different than what they've always been. But they're, just the way they present, they've sharpened up a lot in the last couple of months."

When talking about his own company, Murdoch defended its motto - "Fair & Balanced".

"I would say we're fair and balanced, [but] people laugh at that and say 'No, no, you're very right wing,'" he said . "In fact, you'll find just as many Democrats as Republicans on and so on -- whereas you'll only find Democrats on the [other networks] more or less."

Anybody buy this?

The Fox reporters present both sides of issues, unlike the other networks who only deride Republicans. Democrats are not very open-minded, not generous.

Nope...I'm not buying, and I honestly don't know anyone else who'd buy this load of bull hockey.
