Heh. The irony is that FOX proposes that people NOT trust big media because it's biased, while FOX itself is the most biased of any source. Their standards of journalistic integrity are comparable to what you'd find in communist countries like China, where they make the news fit the ideology.
People who rely on FOX for their understanding of the world are unmoored from actual reality. I know of a true case, a middle aged guy who used to work for Enron, a scientist, now living in a nearly all-white suburb in Colorado whose fear compels him to buy assault weapons to defend himself from a coming breakdown in American society. I kid you not, this man and his family live in mortal dread. After 9/11 they were so scared out of their wits the guy's wife was on the brink of committing suicide and taking her children with her because she was afraid the terrorists were at her doorstep. True story. There is a lot of fear in America and I blame Fox News for their deranged perception of reality.
