    To confuse you.

    Murdoch just wants to make money. There is a market for a "news" channel that is one-sided, because there are many angry middle-aged white men. There is also a market for shows like Family Guy since it appears to get decent ratings. Murdoch also endorsed New Labour for quite a while until their popularity dropped, and now he is endorsing the Tories.

    Maybe liberals watch less news and more comedy?

    I'm not sure how competitive cable is the states but in Oz its pretty much an exclusively Foxtel show of which News owns 25%.

    There's no end of fun watching The Daily Show rip into everything Fox News hold dear. Now I'm sure that Comedy Central is not owned by FOX, but Murdoch has no qualms it seems running both sides against the middle. Either way the ratings the shows bring probably serve as the ideal laboratory to all the more effectively construct that perfect rat trap

    A perfect illustration that conservative minds only work on the lizard-brain level. Everything must be threats and violence. There is no time for considered and intelligent reflection. Just an endless stream of vitriol and hatred handed out to anyone who might inadvertently cause a higher-order synapse to fire. A Dick Cheney greeting for one and all - the little ones must be so proud of you.
