FOX News Launches The FOX Nation Web Site

Rupert Murdoch wants FOX News to be as competitive on the web as it is on cable television. As such, he has launched a new Web site to spread the conservative point of view. The Center simply wonders how much and how well they will cover energy and environmental issues. Here is how they describe themselves on their Web site:

The Fox Nation was created for people who believe in the United States of America and its ideals, as expressed in the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Emancipation Proclamation. It is a community that believes in the American Dream: Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. One that believes being an American is an honor, as well as a great responsibility—and a wonderful adventure.

This is a place for people who believe we live in a great country, a welcoming refuge for legal immigrants who want to contribute their talent and abilities to make our way of life even greater. We believe we should enjoy the company and support of each other, delighting in the creativity, ingenuity, and work ethic of one and all, while observing the basic rules of civility and mutual respect and, most importantly, strengthening our diverse society by striving for unity.

The Fox Nation is for those committed to the core principles of tolerance, open debate, civil discourse--and fair and balanced coverage of the news. It is for those opposed to intolerance, excessive government control of our lives, and attempts to monopolize opinion or suppress freedom of thought, expression, and worship.
Of course for the best and latest information on energy and environmental issues, one need only visit our Center site daily. And the Center is 'really' nonpartisan. We provide a real 'fair and balanced' view of the energy and environmental world. (Wash Post, 3/30/09)
