I'm sorry, but I think this is pitiful. Not funny. It's just some of the old Reddit "Let's bash Fox/Repubs/conservatives." It is, in other words, polarizing, which is the direct opposite of what most people want for Voat.

Yep, seems like Reddit has finished migrating.

It makes people seem really uninformed when bias comes up and the only thing they can scream is "OH MA GAAAWD, FOOXNEWWSS IS SOOO BIAASSS"

Then they turn on CNN, MSNBC, ABCNEWS, CBS and think everything is fine......

Voat right now.

At Reddit: "WE WANT FREEDOM OF SPEECH. NO CENSORSHIP"

At Voat: "I HATE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE SAYING. MAKE IT STOP"

Well, I mean OP is just poking fun at how FOX had a lot of well known anti-gay reports, and they're implying they would have had pro-slavery reports due to this fact. I don't think OP is trying to send some "Fuck Conservatives, YAY LIBERALS!" message, or trying to imply one news station is better than the other. Also, I'd have to imagine at points in times the liberal news stations were running anti-gay stories as well. Pretty much anyone these days should be able to understand they all have an agenda to push and it's whatever the polls of their most watched political demographic are saying. Don't get so defensive for no reason.

Fox news lead the pack. I think MSNBC can be just as bad sometimes. CNN, ABCNEWS, and CBS aren't as devoted to a partisan spin as those guys. If you primarly get your news from Cable news you are in trouble anyway you slice it.

Why not both? Humor is known for exaggerating, so I think it can be both: Polarizing and funny.

Yeah, this isn't /v/politics, who gives a fuck if a funny post is polarizing

If a conservative were to post a counterpart bashing liberals it would not be well received. Conservatives do visit this site and it is unfair to be alienating a demographic.

Correct. Look at any comedian anywhere. They take a slightly humorous story and exaggerate until everyone is laughing. This is hilarious.

I think people are taking something meant to be funny, way too seriously; but hey at least it wont create a comment grave yard like it did elsewhere.

This thread is filled with "disagree button". Fucking Plebbit migrants.

Stop with this bullshit guys. Save your downvoats for spam and troll content, not things that hurt your feefees or go against your political orientation. It's pathetic, and will be the downfall of this site.

Seriously, stop.

Please.

For the love of Satan.

Really. The downvoat button is not a disagree button.

No, it's not.

Stop. It's not a disagree button.

Use it to clean spam and troll content out of here.

Let's not be Reddit 2.0

It's not a disagree button.

It's not.

In absolute seriousness, it's not.

You're free to say what you want, but people are also allowed to voat how they want as well.

I've been reading this exact post, written by you or a copy of you, for ten years, on Reddit.

At least it's original content. Additionally, what's more polarizing, fox news, or calling out fox news for being polarizing?

I'd rather have OC like this than seeing another "look at me..." meme.

While I personally don't think a funny meme is anything to get too upset about, I gotta disagree with the implied argument that "fox news is more polarizing, so calling fox news out in a polarizing way is okay."

It's original in what sense? It's hardly "content." Someone got funny (if your sense of humor runs that way) with a picture of Bill O'Reilly (whose voice/face/words/show I avoid at all costs).
