Fox News has launched its Fox News for iPhone website. Designed for the iPhone and iPod touch’s interface, the site allows users to read headlines, search the Fox News archive, and watch every video available on Foxnews.com. The videos will automatically stream in the correct size for the user’s current connection, whether it be EDGE or Wi-Fi. In addition, users can also share stories, and get quick links to Fox News podcasts on the iTunes Store. Fox News for iPhone can be accessed by visiting iphone.foxnews.com from an iPhone or iPod touch. [via MDN]

Yea! Since there aren’t any decent native games on the iPhone, I can watch Fixed News to melt my brain.
...right, let me know when I can watch Keith Olberman on my iPhone.

Wait a minute….how did Keith Olberman qualify as a political commentator from being a sports commentator (he wasn’t any good either)????

Wait ... how does anything that Fox News releases qualify as “news”?

Fortunately, we live in a country where you don’t really need any qualifications to comment on politics.
Besides, it’s been my experience that the people “qualified” to comment on politics are usually as out of touch with the citizens of this country as the politicians are.

So much for the theory that the iPhone won’t support Exchange. Fox News is notorious for exchanging real news for sensationalized b.s. every single day.

Super.  Next time I need a dose heavily slanted, Bush-supporting, ultra-conservative right-wing garbage, I’ll be sure to check out this web app.

...and every time you want a dose of liberalism (okay to abort babies—but NO to capital punishment; okay to support unions and okay to buy cheap goods from China—where they have no unions; okay to support welfare [and take taxes from our pockets], but not supporting corporations—in forms of incentives or tax breaks [who would hire people and boost the economy])...just tune in to CNN, MSNBC and all your network news (ABC, CBS, NBC), major newspapers and your professors at your favorite colleges and universities…

Ladies and gentlemen, the tolerance of the left. Respecting differing viewpoints and beliefs only applies to others, not to them.

Well put, JayThree.

Wow - one of the few times I’m embarrassed to be a Mac guy.
Too bad the oh-so tolerant LEFT doesn’t appear to be oh so.
Foxnews site is great example of how to build a mobile site.
Get off of the liberal BS wagon and stick to the topic - if at all possible?

Wah, wah, and finally, wah. It would appear, unsurprisingly, that the unrepentant self-righteousness of the conservative set again rears its ugly head and the wadded panties that follow. Dishing is so much easier than taking, isn’t it, fellas?

Of course, such principled and high-minded people wouldn’t dare to offer a snide barb had CNN developed its iPhone interface first. Am I right?

Fantastic! It’s about time there was more comedy and fantasy available for the iPhone!

Geez, a bunch of whiners complaining that there is more stuff for the iphone.  Real nice…

I wish Progressives would quit whining and insulting their political opponents, it is embarassing and really makes it hard to support that ideology. Fox news is what it is because it is good at making current events entertaining and understadable. Apparently they are able to connect with more of the viewing public than the rest of cable news combined. Insulting them in light of that level of success only serves to make one look ignorant and narrow minded. If you can do better there is a lot of money to be made. Go for it.
