    he shouldve explained why he likes it, right? keep me guessing and i might get it right.
    in general, for me, once i read confirmation of what happened, i try to forsee what next will drop off the plate.

    Yes I watch Fox business just about every day for a few minutes. I like to check it out before the market opens & after it closes. Every now & then I'll also catch someone that they are interviewing that I find interesting.

    As for the Fox "normal" news I'm a (very) little surprised at people. It is the one (only) main stream network that isn't totally liberal & yet we have conservatives that won't watch it because it does have some liberal stuff on it. I don't like the liberal crap either but if we all stop watching it then it will go away OR switch to the liberal side. After all they are a business & have to make money. I see OAN (or whatever it is) talked about a lot but they aren't mass media that everybody knows about. So not watching fox is just (in my mind) the same thing as turning away from what your kids are being taught in school except it's not your kids it's all of those voters that haven't picked a side. So not watching fox is HELPING the liberals in this country. Off my soap box now.

    if the Boston Herald ever gets their act together, them and the NY Post, plus Washington Times should collaberate and open a new network.

    I have never seen FBC, but most of the business "nooze" these days is just repetition of the Conventional Wisdom - which serves the powers that be, and feeds trends and fads.

    Interspaced with their parrotlike "Buy STAWKZZZZ!!" mantra, is wonderment at the great investment Bitcoin is turning into (NOT!) and fluff of Womynz In Bidnezz and other mind-rot. And of course, how wonderful is the economy right now...debt? WHAT debt?...Nothing to see here, citizen. Move along...and BUY STAWKZZZZ!!!.

    If it's pleasing background noise...great. Beats the snot out of MTV or VH1; but that's as far as I'd recommend the content.

    I listed 3 reasons in the OP.

Plus I'm getting a lot of politics but it's not repetitive. Not promoting FOX, but curious. OAN is good too. Sometimes live on the floor of the House or Senate or live committee hearings...

    The Left is really that dumb. I have been thanking our Extremist friends on the Left all year in advance for Trump's landslide 2020 victory. They are the ones who have worked the hardest for ensure Trump's next victory. -John T. Ford

    No.
    I get the business on the net.

    Blue chips stay about the same.

    I watched the Money Honey for awhile and don't know what happened to her.

    She probably got tired of repeating the Conventional Wisdom script.

    Where did she differ? I don't know. Never seen it. But some of these starlets, who have no experience or knowledge in their purported specialty, get tired of pretending to be pro-business or conservative or pro-rights...and quit. Like May-Gun Kelly.

    There is really nothing to see on tevee anymore. It's all fake and all propaganda and all written by, and for, imbeciles.
