No, products which are revealed to harm society should be regulated. What Fox offers is a product that seemingly harms society.
This is not about personal preferences. Now you bring up personal preference by alluding to "those I don't agree with" so am I too understand this is what you focus on? So it can be understood you do agree with Fox and since you do, you do not favor their product being reviewed for it's negative impact on society?
Also, I never hear hate speech anyways. I have heard left wing sources does it though. One guy wants to kick Dick Cheneys heart around like a political football. NBC intentionally edited George Zimmermans 911 call to paint him as a racist and ensure racial division remains in this country. Chris Matthews always and falsly feeds into the fear speech of racial division. Another left radio host speaking of those killed by a tornado in the Bible Belt as their god sashing them into little grease spots on the asphalt. Occupy wall street was fully supported by lefties everywhere and was merely one giant violent drug induced disease fest. James Hoffa of the teamsters yelled and screamed about taking these tea party sons of b****es out and Maxine Waters said they can all go straight to hell. Nearly all the left endorsed pseudo murder charges on Mitt Romney. There are so very many provable examples of which side of politics and media holds the most hatred in their hearts. They're always wishing harm and death to Right leaning figures. Conservative radio has plenty of drama and grievances with the left but I never once heard any of them wish harm and death to anyone. Just because they don't like Obama doesn't mean their arguments are hate speech. The emotional left though let's their hate be well known.
So, let me get this right, your defense to Fox News having a harmful effect on society is to give us a rundown of past Fox News stories? It is these very headlines and stories you introduce that are the subject of our scrutinization.
Also are these elementary excuses? "But, but the other kids are all doing it too!"
You mention idiots and drunk religuous zealots. I wonder how many Fox News viewers could be described as such. You said it!
