    I don't believe that it's taught any more in journalism classes.

    It definitely isn't practiced any more.

    It's a shame.

    Fox was talking about something other than the shutdown their politicians caused...shocking

    Heh, even that reputation was overblown. The more one reads from the past, the more it becomes apparent that though they strove for objectivity, reporters were men and women of their times, and as such, claims of past objectivity is suspect.

    but there is a difference between pursuing it and just tossing the concept under a bus

    It took four decades before we found out that Walter Cronkite was lying to the American people.

    nothing on Fox is fair and balanced, at all.

    Indeed there is, but I hold the concept with more suspicion than most apparently do.

    She wasn't fair and balanced with her interviewing style. That's rather obvious. However, the fact that she encouraged both persons to state their positions was fair and balanced. Heck, she could have just had the guy on her show...kind of like Maddow does.

    Be it an agenda or not, the practice compelled by the need to be 'politically correct' has gone beyond the bounds of reasonable. If you have a round, rubber spherical object with a shade on the color wheel between red and yellow, it is most likely an orange rubber ball. However I'm suspect a liberal will make an effort to call it something else so as not to offend or insult balls that are neither rubber, nor orange.

    Re: Is Megyn Kelly being "Fair & Balanced" Here

    I don't think of Megyn Kelly as a journo; rather, I see her as lawyer and political commentator. I finally kinda saw her new show Friday and think it's going to be very popular with its target demographic. Only segment I remember was the one with Judge Judy. They talked about taking personal responsibility.

    Perhaps that will be a theme or part of an "agenda."
