How Are Fox News and Fox Network Cut From The Same Cloth?

by Will

Can someone explain something to me? How is it that Fox News is SO UBER conservative, with its Ann Coulter interviews and Mr. Bill O’Reilly, calling for the deaths of the heathenist liberals. At the same time, the Fox Network, also owned by Rupert Murdoch, is the most debasing, trashiest force on network television (for all you novices, “network” only applies to Fox and the alphabet nets, not the cable outlets.). I mean, Fox created the reality-show, with COPS all those years ago, and with the Worlds Deadliest Animal/Babies/Golf Carts/Natural Distasters/Police Chase Specials. I know that UPN is more deplorable, but thats just due to lack of good programming. Fox, on the other hand, is almost trying to outdo itself with “how low can you get” shows. Sure, Joe Millionaire was a hit, but it was a horrible testament to morality, as well as the human condition. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE FOX! I’ve been there since it’s inception in 1987 with Married…with Children. But I don’t see how such bastard children can come from the same father. Does Murdoch keep Fox around so that his News Dept has cannon fodder for debate?
