The Fox News Channel has had many liberal critics who consider its “fair and balanced” approach to the news to be a joke. The nickname “Fox Comedy Channel” (or “Fox Comedy News” or “Fox Comedy") has been cited in print since at least December 2005.
There is a Fox television network that has many comedy shows, but there is no Fox Comedy Channel.
Other Fox News nicknames include “Faux News” (since March 2001), “Fux News” (since July 2001), “Fox Spews"/"Faux Spews” (since November 2001), “Foxaganda” (since October 2003), “Fox Noise"/"Faux Noise” (since August 2004), “Fake News” (since September 2004, “Fixed News” (since October 2004), “Full Of Xenophobia” (since March 2007), “Fixed Noise” (since August 2007) and “FoxPAC” (since September 2009).
The more liberal MSNBC network has been nicknamed “PMSNBC” (since July 1996), “MSNBS” (since October 1996), “MessNBC” (since March 2002), “MSDNC” (since at least May 2005), “MSLSD” (since at least September 2005), “MSLGBT” (since at least October 2008) and “Moonbats Spouting Nothing But Crap” (since January 2010).
Wikipedia: Fox News Channel
Fox News Channel (FNC), often Fox News, or ambiguously “Fox”, is a cable and satellite television news channel owned by the Fox Entertainment Group, a subsidiary of News Corporation. As of April 2009, the channel is available to 102 million households in the United States and further to viewers internationally, broadcasting primarily out of its New York studios.
The channel was created by Australian-American media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who hired former NBC executive Roger Ailes as the founding CEO. The channel was launched on October 7, 1996 to 17 million cable subscribers. The channel grew in the late 1990s and 2000s to become the dominant cable news network in the United States. In 2010 the network took the top 10 spots in the age 25–54 demographic and the top 12 spots among total viewers.
Some critics have asserted that Fox News Channel promotes conservative political positions. Commentators, news anchors, and reporters at Fox News Channel respond that news reporting and political commentary operate independently of each other, and deny any bias in the news reporting.

I would love to be the one with a microphone in my hand asking someone at Fox about these pictures. Either you are going to be professional or you are not. Fox Comedy News can’t have it all. If this is their version of John Steward type of journalism, they failed badly.

According to the right-wing smear merchants at the Fox Comedy News Network, McCain’s experiences as a prisoner of war in Vietnam justify his later behavior vis-a-vis his first wife.

“Fox Comedy News”... problem solved. It’s a much more accurate description of their network anyway.
