A number of media studies have found that Fox News coverage tends to favor Republican party candidates and positions. However, the company rebuffs these bias claims and has used the slogan "fair and balanced" to represent its coverage.
Academic content analysis studies have found that Fox tends to give Republican political candidates more favorable coverage during election periods. The network has also given Republican candidates more airtime for their messages. Studies have found a similar imbalance in representation of political points such as climate change, favoring the positions of the Republican party. Fox News consistently denies any reporting bias, as of 2015.
