But seriously, if I hear him say less intervention more regulation one more time, I'm going to flip my load.

Fox in the morning does a pretty good job of sticking to the facts. Afternoons and evenings are more commentary, I would say. A lot of people complain about Fox without even watching it. I'm not saying this is the case with the OP but it happens.

Mainstream media outlets, I think, are a different story. You can switch from one to the other and not even know you have changed the channel. They use the same talking points, same catch phrases, run the same stories and avoid the ones they don't like. They are so concerned with political correctness and not offending the current administration that the stories they report are diluted. That's if they report them at all. I have seen a few stories get reported on Fox that weren't reported on other outlets.

I get a tingle up my leg every time someone says mainstream media outlets report real news.

It's true, though. I've seen it with my own eyes.
