FOX To Host New Cosmos 206

twocows writes "FOX is set to make a new season of Carl Sagan's 'Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,' hosted by Neil Degrasse Tyson and written by none other than Ann Druyan (Carl Sagan's widow). Let's hope they don't screw it up like every other good show they've aired in the past decade."

    The man said it best himself. []

    "Simple Logic: Worried that FOX viewers don't know, think, or care about science? That's why COSMOS belongs on FOX."

    and he's right. if anyone can spark an interest in science it's Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.

    If you can't bring yourself to tune into Fox []
    National Geographic Channel will air a same-night encore of the episodes following their broadcast on Fox.

    Fox and Fox News have always been very different.

    One is the tanker car full of manure and the other is the maglev that pulls the bullshit train.

    I'm comfortable refusing to give my money to both, especially since anything they make that is of interest can be obtained free of charge and commercial free.

    How you like me now, Rupe?

    Both are owned by the extreme right-wing and criminal Newscorp. That they try to cultivate multiple brand images is more a sign of a corporate personality problem than it is of unbiased functionality.

    You do realize that Murdoch supported Hillary Clinton, right? You do realize that Fox is NOT FoxNews, right? Murdoch is a business man. His only agenda is making a profit, which is what businesses are supposed to do. Murdoch looked at the news landscape and realized that it was dominated by left wingers and slanted far to the right of the American public. So, he created a news network that is right of center, but one that still presents both sides of the political spectrum. What do you know... Fox News is the number 1 cable news channel and has been since shortly after its creation. Why? Because Murdoch found that a majority of the population was not represented in news coverage. He grabbed them up and left all the rest to fight over the minority of what is left.
