I happen to be a fan of Fox News, but the sloppy reporting (loan amount and hersay comments) - The "bias" in this report sure sounds like MSNBC style NOT what I expect from Fox News -- Shame on you Megan Kelly and the Fox news director for airing the piece. Let hope for Fisker that the cars was not the cause -- could get messy and leave us early adopters a potential safty hazard to consider.

Yeah, I'm generally a fan of Fox, but for some reason they have a vendetta against all things electric. I've yet to see them get their facts right on any story about EV's.

I am not a fan of Faux news either, but a car catching fire inside a house is probably reasonable cause for concern, whether or not the car is an EV. Fortunately, they have a pretty short attention span on this sort of stuff and with the general election being in full swing, this story will fade and die soon enough.

If a bias aligns with your own, it's probably harder to detect. Bob Lutz used to be a fan of Fox News until their purposefully misleading coverage of the Volt.

I [Bob Lutz] am, sadly, coming to the conclusion that all the icons of conservatism are (shock, horror!) deliberately not telling the truth!

This saddens me, because, to this writer, conservatism IS fundamental truth. It only damages its inherent credibility with momentarily convenient fiction.
If they're lying about this, what else are they lying about?

IMHO, it's funny... the liberals attack Fox News because it's not left-wing biased. And the conservatives attack the other networks, such as MSNBC, NBC News, (and you name it other than Fox News), because they are in the liberal corner. I like my news Fair and Balanced. Can't we all just be conservative and get along? :D

How about we leave politics out of FiskerBuzz forums altogether. There's plenty of politicizing being done elsewhere. Can we please keep this thread and the rest of the forums more-or-less on topic to the car and the company?

I suspect there are folks here of every political stripe. You're all pretty. Now lets get back to figuring out how to enjoy the car, keep the bugs at bay, and sharing the experiences and discoveries of Fisker ownership!

This is somewhat off-topic, but IMHO, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a news outlet having a point of view, as long as they are honest about it and Faux news is not, which takes care of the "Fair" part. The "balanced" part is also pretty troubling because truly objective reporting of facts does not need to be "balanced". You only need "balance" if you are pushing opinion, which Faux news does frequently disguised as news. But hey, there are a lot of news channels on the dial, so to each his/her own.

Well put, Fab. I agree 100%.
