• Why do conservatives keep watching Fox News even after being laughed at and ridiculed for it?

    Best answer: Fox reaffirms the corporate philosophy. Their pundits are the least accurate. Trump who seems to get much of his "news" from them is clearly misinformed about many things. Fox News (which is not news) is most certainly not the “most trusted news network.” (In fact, Fox News is not really a news... show more
    Best answer: Fox reaffirms the corporate philosophy. Their pundits are the least accurate. Trump who seems to get much of his "news" from them is clearly misinformed about many things.

    Fox News (which is not news) is most certainly not the “most trusted news network.” (In fact, Fox News is not really a news network.)

    It may (at the moment) have some popularity. It may have higher ratings than some other news networks (most of which, actually do present news).

    It is certainly more popular than CSpan. However, CSpan would certainly be ranked as “more trusted,” by almost any measure.

    Fox News has never even won a single award for journalism (perhaps, because it does not actually do journalism).

    The Jerry Springer television program actually is “more popular” than PBS’ Nova series, or 60 Minutes. However, I doubt if you will find too many who would refer to the Jerry Springer television program as “trusted.”

    Since its 1997 creation by Australian Rupert Murdoch, Fox has never won any of the most prominent journalism awards.

    Consider the George F. Peabody Award, perhaps the most prestigious honor in electronic media and given by the University of Georgia, hardly a bastion of liberalism, since 1941. From Fox's arrival in 1997, PBS has the most Peabodys, with 19 in the news category, followed closely by CBS (16) and BBC (14). PBS also has topped the competition for the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Awards honoring excellence in broadcast journalism, with 23 prizes. CBS News has been the most honored (25 times) with the Edward R. Murrow Award, named for the great broadcast journalist whose World War II reporting from London was unparalleled.

    Aside from no awards, Fox has yet to match CBS, NBC and ABC news giants such as Murrow; Walter Cronkite, once TV's most respected man; Tom Brokaw, who authored “The Greatest Generation”; David Brinkley/Chet Huntley; or Peter Jennings, John Chancellor, Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters, among others. Today’s major network anchors, Lester Holt, David Muir and Anthony Mason, are superb in their own right.

    Fox is packaged as entertainment. So it remains popular.

  • Which is better? NASCAR or Formla One?

    Best answer: They are different, one's not really better. F1 is higher tech, higher horsepower, higher speed, international competition. Not as accessible to fans. The racing is far more technical. But only a couple teams have technology to win. Nascar has a far larger group of drivers that could win on any Sunday. You... show more

    F1 is higher tech, higher horsepower, higher speed, international competition. Not as accessible to fans. The racing is far more technical. But only a couple teams have technology to win.

    Nascar has a far larger group of drivers that could win on any Sunday. You could watch races at a local track, then a few years later see one of those drivers on TV.

  • Why is f1 racing set up that way in the beginning?

    Best answer: Its set up that way because the track isn't wide enough for all the cars to start out side by side. The starting positions are determined by lap times during the qualifying runs. Each car/driver/team gets some time to practice on the track before the race - usually a few days before the race. The teams that... show more
    Best answer: Its set up that way because the track isn't wide enough for all the cars to start out side by side.

    The starting positions are determined by lap times during the qualifying runs. Each car/driver/team gets some time to practice on the track before the race - usually a few days before the race. The teams that run the fastest laps get the best starting positions.

    The races are long enough that there is plenty of time for a driver to make up the difference if he starts in the back, and there are situations where someone starts in the back and wins the race. Teams that start at the front are much more likely to win, but not because of getting slight head start, they're the teams that ran the best qualifying times, which means they're probably the best teams with the fastest cars and best drivers.

    Even if you changed the process so that starting positions were selected by random draw or by a rotation throughout the season, you'd still see a correlation between teams that run fast qualifying times and teams that win races, because those are the fastest teams.

  • 1970 boss 429 mustang vs 1970 426 hemi 'cuda in stock form?

    Best answer: The Mustang as you defined pretty much narrowed down to a single model, but the Hemi's were available in several 'cuda models. If you narrowed the 'cuda down to a 4 speed model since that's what the Mustang came with then the Hemi beat the Boss by about half a second.
