HeyCori says:

Between the Onion, Daily Show, and Colbert Report, now I can have 4 fake news apps!

firebrewd says:

Ok, wow. WP7 does get a lot of love from developers and big brands.

wetworker says:

Nice app. loads fast and is very responsive.I like that you can adjust the size of the text.The only thing they need to fix is adding next and previous arrows to the toolbar, swiping is not as intuitive. 9/10

irvinge1 says:

Well..... Aside from what you mentioned, the only thing they need to fix is the "Fair and Balanced" motto. This is one app I would be happy without. Sorry lol

jimski says:

The most trusted new source in America.

irvinge1 says:

yea..... also the one with one of the most misinformed followers.

Pacifica1#WP says:

Actually, they're more informed than people that watch MSNBC or the stuff on CC.Proof: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2011/jun/20/jon-stewa...

irvinge1 says:

Since my comment was erased for some reason, I'll say it again.The news with one of the most misinformed followers.

fpostrow says:

Outstanding. 2 days after picking up 3 Sammy Focii Fox News releases their official app. Outstanding. Irvinge & Figure 8 Dash, if you are used to hearing only the lefts perspective I can see how hearing both sides of the news seems ... biased. Fox does an amazing job and that's why they are #1 in News and it's not even close. And better yet, they don't use tax money from your wallet to do it unlike NPR and PBS. I'm just sayin' ...Bravo!

HeyCori says:

If your knowledge of politics comes from TV news then it is truly a waste of my time to talk politics with you. No matter what I say, whether it's pro-left or pro-right, the problem is that you've already decided that it can only be pro-left or pro-right. Take a second and think about it (though I'm quite sure you won't).

fpostrow says:

I don't believe I said anything about my knowledge of Politics coming from TV News. That was an assumption made on your part, I will forgo the quote about assumptions. More apps for WP7 is great news and Fox News is the latest in a nice trend.

irvinge1 says:

Actually, when you are used to watching news that has a right wing agenda, I can see how any other news seems "left".

the politics dont matter to me. official news apps are welcomed as far as Im concerned. would also like to see a cnn app and how is it that MSnbc hasnt released an official app.

mango.lover says:

Exactly. Aren't they part-owned by Microsoft? Sometimes I wish Microsoft exercised more control over MSNBC technology-wise.

Paul Acevedo says:

Ugh. I wouldn't touch anything Fox NEWS with a ten foot poll. The absolute worst news channel/anything in America. I know it's hard not to be biased while reporting, but for the entire network to have a blatant political agenda is just disgusting and wrong.

Pacifica1#WP says:

They have Red Eye. Therefore they beat everyone out there, end of story.

fpostrow says:

Riiight. That's why Juan Williams works for them after NPR canned him for having an opinion. It's called freedom of speech and clearly you don't watch FNC because you are seriously misinformed.Having said that, more apps for WP7 is great news, and I am very happy the catalogue is growing.

An overall nicely done app. The live tile updates work well. And, it's good to have access to a news source that provides balance against CNN, MSNBC and other MSM news sources. Having access to an ever wider variety of news sources apps is important to gain perspective of issues from different view points. The realclearpolitics is a great site to get different opinions. Hopefully they'll create a WP7 app.
