    Is Megyn Kelly being "Fair & Balanced" Here

    At the link below is a video of one of Megyn Kelly's "Fair and Balanced" segments on her afternoon show on Fox from almost three years ago. Please watch and note how she is handling it. I am not interested in the subject matter they are discussing, except she (or her producer) is the one who chose the subject matter, so the that is a consideration. I am interested how she is handling it.

    The choices in the Poll are:

    . It's "Fair and Balanced"

    . She has an agenda.

    . I don't know

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

    If your small window is in regard to her technique, then I would have to say she was not being "balanced." She did not push the discussion to challenge both individuals, but rather on one guest.

    Is what she is bringing up a fair criticism of the proponents for terminology change? Absolutely.

    why even watch? what's the point? fox and msnbc are infotainment; bias is part of the business model.

    My barometer for excellence is: will it bore the average person? If yes, you have a solid broadcast. If it is entertaining: you have a crappy broadcast.

    Layoff of MSNBC, it's the only channel one can go to and learn about prisons in America.

    MSNBC aka The Prison Channel is the only network that sticks up for criminals who are behind bars.

    sadly, you're correct. when it comes to news and wine, i generally like it dry. just tell me what is going on, and let me use my own intellectual curiosity to form an opinion. occasionally, i even admit that a previous opinion of mine was wrong, and i update my theory in light of new data. oh, the horror of not just being spoon fed the slant that i want to hear.

    the last time i watched MSNBC, Dr. Nancy was the only good show on the entire channel. she did a great job of swatting down anti-vaxers and Dr. Oz bull****. the rest was celebrity prison sex and Olbermann calling for the president to resign every ****ing night. then they cancelled Dr. Nancy, and i tuned out. the network is a joke.

    i dropped fox in '06, though i was still a libertarian then. the slant was so obvious that my suspension of disbelief was destroyed. the only time i see any of that network is when it inadvertently pops up in my blank google news search. almost every article is chosen and written for a Republican audience. i admit tuning in on election night for about five minutes to watch Rove's Ohio reaction. i skipped MSNBC's reaction, though i'm sure it was probably an orgasmic celebration of "go team." that **** is not news, and the "journalists" who are employed by these networks should send apology letters to their journalism professors. i took one journalism class in college, and lesson one was objectivity and integrity.

    Exactly, and the irony is that the people who bitch the most about the decline usually spend their entire day grazing on punditry and op-ed style reporting show. pbrauer is the perfect example of this, the man constantly complains about fox, but religiously follows MSNBC and media matters

    It was like some daily ritual on political forums. A bunch of chatter heads would post a clip of Olberman getting outraged at Bush and then they would all post about how outraged they were.

    all pointless and completely impotent.
