How Fox News Manipulating the American Opinion

Fox News as well as has reported the news that
"this week, the nine Justices of the Supreme Court have been listening to oral arguments about the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act."
They quote that
“according to polls” (which poll and what was the question), “56% of Americans favor repealing the health care reform law. Then again, a decision on fundamental rights and constitutionality should not be a popularity contest. What’s more, according another poll, 1 in 7 Americans believes the Supreme Court has already repealed the Affordable Care Act. So much for polling. “

This so called News shows how the most powerful Media Network in the United States of American is and has been scaring people and manipulating the American opinion. Having worked in the medical field for many years, I have seen firsthand what being uninsured does to a family who had to have heart bypass surgery! Most of these families went either bankrupt or the ones who had health insurance have lost their health insurance because their insurance would not cover them anymore because the margin of risks has gone too high for the premiums the family could afford.

So in the view of Fox News it is unconstitutional to protect families from such kind of practices. Patients’ protection is unconstitutional as well, according to Fox News. Obviously this is wrong but because Fox News owns the greatest network in the US, it can repeat these statements over and over again, eventually hoping their assertion becomes due to repetition right.

Why are allowing media to manipulate the population. How is the U.S.A different from China or Russia or other totalitarian counties except that the media control is done by one private company rather than the government?
