    Does the Right ever watch FOX other than FOX News?

    Family Guy, The Simpsons, American Idol, Modern Family followed by Sean Hannity and Fox and Friends.

    I know it's Rupert Murdoch; but has FOX News ever criticized these shows on their own network?

    I can't speak for all the people that watch FOX news, but the ones I know personally are all seniors. They turn on FOX news and just leave it there all day. That and the weather channel.

    I don't think the channel concept means very much once you stop looking at the older age brackets.

    Sure, they watch the other stuff on FOX as well. I mean, "news" is only a half hour a day. Everything else is "news opinion".

    No, they wouldn't. That would conflict with their carefully constructed world view and be detrimental to the development of their victim complex.

    Wouldn't they criticize and try to remove these ironic satirical shows? It seems pointless to watch The Simpsons and then have Hannity on next.

    They sold all that stuff to Disney anyway.

    Doubt it. FOX (FOX, FX, FXX, FXM) entertainment channels are the polar opposite of FOX News.

    The parent company is 21st Century Fox.

    Fox is a broadcasting network that airs TV programming.

    Fox News is a cable news channel.

    Different branding. Different brands.

    That is until Disney bought 21st Century Fox. I'm not sure what it looks like now, but much of the assets we're spun off into successor companies. This means that Fox News, for example, is not owned by Disney.

    I thought the only part of Fox that they sold was the stuff that had the Marvel stuff in it? Like X-Men and whatnot? Not their local affiliates that run the Fox shows like Family Guy, etc.

    I could be wrong but Disney bought everything but Fox News, Sports, and Business. So Disney owns the cable channels such as FOX, FX, FXX, and FXM.

    That’s the ol’ irony about fox... Fox also ran Martin, Married with Children and a lot of other, less than family values shows on their TV station.

    You are correct, but it is very recent:

    Modern Family is not Fox... they may run it in syndication, but that would be your local Fox affiliate. ABC is their home...

    Disney owns ABC, so Nanaboostme wasnt too far off.

    And they're buying Fox, just not the "news" part.
