on Fox news...

....I just had something of a revelation (or just a question?) about inflammatory shows like the O'Reilly factor and fox news? I mean what if these guys were actually doing us a favor by acting as a counterpoint to public opinion? Public sentiment being as divided as it now is.

One could argue that Fox news, while seemingly a creation of the Republican party and right wing agenda as such, is actually a reaction to it. I can see people starting to watch it and thinking "wait a minute, this doesn't seem right", while actually starting to levitate in the other direction. What if this was created to show how absolutely preposterous that so called "fair and balanced" viewpoint were, in order to get people to oppose it?
