Fourteen years ago today, the network that liberals love to hate and conservatives obsessively-compulsively follow was launched.
Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes first launched the Fox News Channel on October 7, 1996, a few cable stations at a time, gathering momentum to become the top-ranked cable news channel, eventually even beating the network news programs.
For a fun look back, Mediaite posted a slideshow of photos of Fox News personalities, then and now. Gotta love the changing hair styles. (UPDATE: Bill O'Reilly just said he was wearing a toupee back in the day. Nice.)
