You might wonder why this is in the linguist forum, but this has to do with the meaning of the word "reputation". The guy I'm debating with is trying to say that Fox News has a good reputation. He uses this definition: So he says that since Fox News has such good ratings and has a positive opinion among Americans, it has a good reputation. I'm trying to tell him that the word is relative, and even if he can prove it has a positive response from Americans, that doesn't mean it has an objectively good reputation. Some other guy was trying to show him how many errors Fox News has, but he tried to wiggle out of it by saying that wasn't the definition of the word reputation. What are your thoughts?
