Please offer proof for this assertion. I'll just make some lunch and await your fascinating reply.
Since I would not want you to miss this post I'll PM you a link.
Now remember, we're all waiting for empirical evidence, no silly rants, blather-filled opinion pieces or embarrassing references that confuse commentary programming with news programming.
OK . . . GO!

PS ~ Sorry Dr Pat, I answered your original question incorrectly. I 'read' your question with an extra word in it that wasn't really there. I thought you said, "So you really think ... ".
I was trying to say that of course I don't think they don't have an agenda.
Ehrr, that still sounds confusing. I meant to say that I know that NewsHounds has an agenda.
Obama's right. It's time to stop taking the network's skewed news seriously.

Last week, when White House communications director Anita Dunn charged the Fox News Channel with right-wing bias, Fox responded the way it always does. It denied the accusation with a straight face while proceeding to confirm it with its coverage.
Take a look at Fox's own Web story on the episode...
(snip ... ) Let's do a quick study of our own. Five people are quoted in this article. Two of them work for Fox. All of them assert that administration officials are either wrong in substance or politically foolish to criticize the network. No one is cited supporting Dunn's criticisms or saying that it could make sense, morally or politically, for Obama to challenge the network's power. It's a textbook example of a biased news story.

Exactly so. Further down the article, the author says, "Any news organization that took its responsibilities seriously would take pains to cover presidential criticism fairly. It would regard doing so as itself a test of integrity and take pains not to load the dice in its own favor."
But Fox does not take it's responsibilities w/ regard to news seriously. Of course they loaded the dice in their own favor. That is their business model.
This liberal tactic has grown quite old, maybe you should re-read your talking points and come up with something fresh!
