I think Fox just wanted report on things other media companies generally didn't and that is what draws them ire to what otherwise be a monopoly on information. They aren't always right nor do I always agree with them but I am glad they exist. Any sort of inconvenient truth would be ignored by CNN and MSNBC.

To me this is what is so awesome about things like the internet. There can be so much more diversity of views now that doesn't only represent a narrow segment of the population. People that relay information tend to filter it through their own ideological lens. The easier it is to spread information the better. If contrary views weren't so threatening people wouldn't try to squash them out. People still choose what they read and ultimately how they vote. Who understands the Iowa farmer better than himself?
