On Israeli cable, Fox is no CNN.

Posted: 20 Nov 2007

"Now that CNN has been dropped by HOT [Israeli cable system], I find myself recently watching more of Fox News, which the cable company has moved over to its old slot. Unfortunately, Fox is no substitute for CNN, not by a long shot. I'm not talking about Fox's conservative bent, which at least allows for a more diverse range of views than one usually gets on MSM (Main-Stream Media, if you didn't know). That's especially welcome when it comes to its coverage of Israel, which is certainly more sympathetic ... than CNN or the BBC. Unfortunately, however, its reporting from Israel - or, for that matter, anywhere else outside the US - is decidedly skimpy compared to those genuinely global media outlets." Calev Ben-David, Jerusalem Post, 16 November 2007.
