The British version of FOX News, anyone?
Not really, Fox is fucking nuts. Sky News generally sticks to the British model of news reporting, the calm disconnected deliverance of facts. Fox News is just plain irresponsible tabloid TV.
I have never really watch either Sky News or the FNC properly, but from what I have seems heaven help us and thank Ofcom for frequently hitting in the bum.
If you watch the FNC's premier show The O'Reilly Factor, you see a man who disrespects anyone who have a different viewpoint from him. He often says "shut up!!" when the interviewee says anything that he disapproves of.
Someone like Paxman, would put pressure on the interviewee, with strong questions and puts quotes to humiliate his guest without rising his voice, but Bill O'Reilly just shouts at the interviewee, making the person small.
