    So it's hypocritical if the left bitches about Fox, but OK if the right bitches about MSNBC?

    I do not bitch about MSNBC being the mouthpiece for the DNC.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The opinion side of Fox is decidedly conservative and guests are heavily weighted toward Republicans. One reason for this though is that Democrats are often reluctant to serve as a counterpoint to guys like Hannity. To represent the left, the opinion side of Fox uses so called Democrat strategists. Media matters would not track them because that would interfere with their prejudice against Fox, which by the way is by far the most popular cable news org.
    What is a democratic strategist? What role do they play in the DNC?

    You are asking the wrong guy. You could call Fox and ask or you could watch, take down names and look them up. The only ones I can remember by name are Juan Williams and Bob Beckel. You could look them up if you wish.

    So you don't know what a democratic strategist is, you just know they provide balance to the conservative content at FOX? There is nothing in Juan Williams bio anywhere that seems to describe him as a democratic strategist, so I'll ask again, what do they do?

    Well, I also asked you: If you don't know what they do and you don't know who they are, how do you even know they present an important opinion when examining DNC matters? How do you know that they provide balance? You're basically telling me that you listen to a guy because he was given a fancy title like 'Democratic Strategist'. I think you believe that a 'Democratic Strategist' presents a response which balances what the other person is saying. However, my questions are basically asking you: How? Explain the role of a democratic strategist in the DNC? What do they do during elections?

    They'll cover it, but unlike on Fox it'll be "Mike Huckabee announced he's running for President. In other news you actually care about..."

    If he becomes a front runner, they'll cover him. If he says something (or many things) really stupid they'll cover that. Otherwise they aren't going to sit there and talk about Huck while their ratings start dropping.

    Isn't a "liberal bias," thing either, they'd barely talk about Webb, O'Malley, etc. too until one of the above happen.

    Look, I'm not lifting a finger to provide you with answers to your questions that you have the capability of answering for yourself. If you are genuinely interested, watch Fox opinion programing and get the answers to your questions. You can hear what they say, get their names, look them up if you are that interested. Frankly if I hear that someone claims to be a democrat strategist, I assume they are either intellectually or ethically challenged.

    Questions I have the capability of answering myself. Well, sure. However, we're questioning why and how you think they provide balance. You seem to be sure that they do. I'm asking you: Why and how?
