    Re: Is Fox News "Fair and Balanced"?

    The Question asked was 'IS FOX NEWS FAIR AND BALANCED?'
    My response to that was a resounding yes.
    Now had the question been 'IS FOX RESPONSE TO THE NEWS FAIR & BALANCED' then quite obviously it is not, but in mitigation neither are any of the other NEWS CHANNELS FAIR AND BALANCED.
    Each News service reports with a bias dependent on the political leanings of those who edit and then read the News.

    News reporters are like sport refs. They are only fair if their calls are going your way.

    Subquestion: how many times will someone think they're the first person ever to ask this question on DP? The count is numbering into the thousands by now.

    Why do you think FOX News is fair and balanced?

    They aren't as dignified as they used to be. Their guests say vile things.

    Pretty much par for the course for both Fox and MSNBC.

    But, what about NPR and PBS....or CSpan for that matter..??
    C-SPAN is the only unbiased network.

    That may be so, if they're just recording what's actually going on in politics.

    I'd love to see that be the norm. Just record what going on in these political houses, minute-by-minute, instead of having spokesmouths relay the data.

    The thing is, if you just watch C-SPAN, you'll never get the entire story. Watching individual events occur is meaningless without any analysis or context. But analysis is primarily where the bias gets introduced.
