    Yet you watch ABC News.

    The amusement, is strong with this one.
    What is your primary news source?

    Do you agree or disagree with me that the line between the press and the government should not be blurred?

    You know, I never really thought of it that way. Good point.

    Of course, there is this counter-argument...

    Doesn't invalidate the question, but it does make it rather difficult to determine hiring based on future events none of us know anything about. Still, I think the bigger point is how can a TV/cable news entity be taken at face value as being "fair and balanced" when the majority of their contract commentators are of only one political party? Answer: You really can't.

    Does Fox have any Liberal commentators?

    Sheik,

    I'm sure they do, but you'd have to ask someone who watches FoxNews more frequently than I do for a more definitive answer. From what I've observed of FoxNews, they don't have very many Liberal news commentators. (Of course, I suppose you could say the same for CNN, but I do know they do have Conservative commentators as regular contributors to their programming.)

    Don't be dillusional. They never were fair nor balanced. FOX is a conservitive, Republican propaganda organization. They claim to be fair an balanced the same way that any propaganda organization claims to be impartial. FOX has nothing to do with news.

    Certainly. It has several.

    It also has more Black commentators than the major news networks and more women,

    But it has always been blurred! Are you unaware that the mainstream press was for BHO? Even he acknowledged it.

    All media have their bias and it is hugely difficult to avoid. In fact getting their point of view across is why many enter the media, as well as being convinced they are smarter than the average person.

    You are confusing endorsement of a politician with hiring them. Many newspapers across the nation endorse a candidate over the others, but they don't hire them. Fox is hiring the most likely candidates for next years presidental election.
