    On November 19, co-host Jane Skinner apologized for Happening Now "mistakenly" airing a fake video of Sarah Palin's book tour "crowds." This was not the first time Fox News has apologized for airing fake videos and false information.
    What do either or those have to do with CNN? We weren't talking about Fox here. My point, which you glossed right over with the FoxNews distraction is again:

    Ted Turner, the founder and owner of CNN owns both places the fellow who started The Project on Excellence in Journalism worked for years.

    2006? Good grief, that was 8 years ago.

    Yes, a lot of Fox on air correspondents have opinions. And lots express their opinions. And? Has nothing to do with CNN being the be all, end all of accuracy, as implied in the OP.

    And listeners go to fox to reinforce their ideologies, not for objective news.


    The Fox News audience skews more ideological than that of its two main competitors. Fully, 60% of Fox News viewers describe themselves as conservative, compared with 23% who say they are moderate and 10% who are liberal, according to a 2012 survey by the Pew Research Center. By contrast, the ideological makeup of CNN viewers (32% conservative, 30% moderate, 30% liberal) and MSNBC viewers (32% conservative, 23% moderate, 36% liberal) is far more mixed.

    Well since CNN is being criticized for doing what FOX has done more, yeah I'd say so.

    That's what they all do. We're going back to the Founder's era of journalism, not the perhaps hopelessly idealistic concept of journalism that started to take shape in the early parts of the last century.

    So has this been discredited, or is it the usual "I don't want to hear evidence that doesn't support my side?"

    I don't find it shocking that the Columbia "J" school would find FOX more bias....It's kind of laughably transparent in a sick sort of way.

    The right does just as good of a job playing victim. Go hang in the media bias forum if you don't think so. Or look for any thread where the "War on Christians" comes up.
