These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Funny Moments: Al Qaeda's media guy once wanted to send a media package to every American news outlet EXCEPT for Fox News, saying that the channel "lacks objectivity." It's funny whether you like or hate the channel, and FNC themselves took it in stride, running it on their website with the headline Fox News, Al Qaeda's Least Favorite TV News Network.
Except on expressly partisan forums (Free Republic, Democratic Underground).
Hell, discussing Fox News anywhere.
One that's guaranteed to start backdraft - Fox & Friends cite a University study regarding Mister Rogers and, essentially, say he ruined the children watching by giving them a sense of entitlement. All you need do is read the comments on the video for just how much hatred viewers had for the hosts by the end of it.
They literally referred to the man as evil. Mr Rogers. Evil. Let that sink in for a minute.
And then, there was one time they called the damned Muppets of all things "Communists" because the main villain was a "successful businessman"(never mind the fact that he's a fairly blatant caricature that's not meant to be taken seriously).
And, as seen here, Kermit and Miss Piggy actually fired back, pointing out that they drive a gas-guzzling Rolls-Royce and that Kermit himself is essentially a CEO, so calling them anti-business is like calling Fox News "News".
They do not like Bronies, as mentioned on Red Eye With Greg Gutfeld. This goes above and beyond the simple "huh, that's odd" reaction. Then again, Red Eye takes the piss out of everyone and everything, even FOX News.
Frequent Red Eye guest Andrew W.K. is a brony. Should be interesting to see how it turns out if it gets brought up...
Just Here for Godzilla: A fair number of liberals admit to watching Fox News because they have an interest in what the other side is saying or to laugh at the more conservative pundits—In many countries, it's marketed as an entertainment channel.
Taken Up to Eleven immediately after the presidential election was called for 2012, as liberals flipped channels en masse to savor Karl Rove's meltdown.
Malicious Slander: At least according to some people like Jon Stewart. He also notes that MSNBC isn't any less biased, but is more incompetent than Fox at spinning their "political narrative"
Some others think the network's been on the receiving end of this.
Mis-blamed: Any time a FOX affiliate's local news team runs a stupid story that gets attention on the Internet, at least half the commentators will mistake it for a story on Fox News, in part because most FOX affiliates that run news (unlike most network affiliates) prominently display "FOX [channel number] NEWS" on the screen during these broadcasts (it doesn't help that both the network makes it compulsory that a station brand with "FOX [channel number]" in most cases, and that the logo is intentionally modeled on FNC's).
...seemingly regardless of whether they're a News Corp O&O station or a semi-independent affiliate. In many cases another station in the market produces the newscast so a station doesn't have to put anything into a costly news department.
Particularly notable is the Chicago O&O WFLD which brands its station as "FOX Chicago" and its news "FOX Chicago News" (because their channel number is so high they feel embarrassed to mention they're Channel 32) note Notwithstanding that WFLD actually branded as "FOX 32" when Rupert Murdoch bought it in the 1980s from Metromedia and, among others, Orlando FOX O&O WOFL brands as "FOX 35", and Pittsburgh FOX affiliate WPGH brands as "FOX 53". Its graphics used to brand it as "FOX News Chicago".
Another one for Megyn Kelly: Fox ran a segment with an all-male panel about how having a woman as the breadwinner of the house is against nature and destructive to society. Megyn Kelly disagreed. The way she greets them at the beginning of the segment should send chills down your spine.
Shepard Smith has had many of them. One could even wonder why Shep is even on Fox News to begin with, because he's actually not a bloviating Jerk Ass.
Shep is typically a Deadpan Snarker and one of the best on the network, leading to many Moments of Awesome. But one of his best moments came during a webcast during a Studio B commercial break where he was part of a roundtable discussing the CIA's waterboarding of terrorists. As the other pundits tried to rationalize the policy, Shep (who disagreed with the policy) got angry and started shouting, "I dont give a rat's ass if it helps! THIS IS AMERICA! WE DO NOTFUCKING TORTURE!"
He was also one of the first to jump on the bandwagon started up by The Daily Show in regards to the absence of coverage regarding the Republican filibuster of The Zadroga Bill in late 2010. He even went so far as to criticize the Bush-era tax cuts while lambasting congressional Republicans for filibustering something they should, by all rights, have been supporting.
