Take that Arianna Huffington, Fox News Channel has launched a competitor to the left-leaning HuffPost with a lean in the other direction. Fox Nation made its debut on Monday.
The new community is located at www.thefoxnation.com. Here is what the new site has to say about its objectives:
“Today, we are confronting hard times, but we know we will overcome these difficulties the old-fashioned way–by rolling up our sleeves and getting back to basics. Here in America, we cherish the words of Abraham Lincoln, who believed in hard work and lived the America Dream, declaring, “The weights should be lifted from the shoulders of all men . . . all should have an equal chance.” And of course, FOX Nation reveres the memory of American patriots and heroes–all gave some, some gave all–who made it possible for us to enjoy our freedoms.
ut how, exactly, should we assure life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? How do we perfect our union? How can we make certain that children of all races are fairly judged, not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character? FOX Nation will be a forum for Americans to speak out on important and controversial issues, and to act on their beliefs and values – while always upholding the traditional American ideals of free speech, fair play, and tolerance.”
Fox Nation says it is different from Fox News Channel and Foxnews.com, which will continue their news coverage. “It is about you, what you care about, what you care about enough to post and comment upon. Anything you want – just keep it decent and legal!”
