    I am merely pointing out the hypocrisy of those who piss bitch and moan about FOX news.
    "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"

    Former New Jersey Governor Jim Mcgreevey is a perfect example of liberal media bias. Instead of being a dirtbag for having an affair on his wife he referred to or called a brave man for coming out of the closet.John Edwards a well known presidential candidate is another example.He barely got any coverage for having any affair on his sick wife while a barely known republican was on the news for allegedly soliciting sex in a airport bathroom. Shooting stories are also an example of liberal media bias.Anytime someone shoots up a place full of white people it gets news for weeks or even a month or two, the media plasters that shooter's face all over the media.The media tells us the gist of what his suicide note says.The media will tell us what type of guns he has, where/how he got them and they give a soap box to anti-2nd amendment trash.But if someone uses a gun to stop a criminal there is little to no mention of the incident.

    The MSM has a history of pretty much ignoring Huck, so he ends up on Fox, who'll give his the time of day.

    Were the MSM less biased, wouldn't they consider covering him and inviting him to appear on their shows?

    The media is not going to promote any of the candidates who they feel hasn't have the support it takes to win. The media likes to promote the horse race narrative because it sells. I predict a Clinton vs. Bush matchup.

    Fox is really two news organizations. The first is hard news and on the hard news side both Republicans and Democrats are fairly equally split.

    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.

    on their "news" shows?

    or on shows like hannity, and the rest of the editorial shows that they have?

    and if on the editorial shows, why do you care?

    you dont think Hillary is getting enough air time?

    Oh I care, but not in a way you might think. I think that because they do this the Republicans will not nominate a good candidate. Both John McCain and Mitt Romney are evidence for my theory. I just love it when they swoon over candidtes such as Cain, Bachmann and now Carson.

    It's not up the news media to promote any one candidate over another. The media should be reporting on all candidates in a factual basis, with even handed analysis and / or commentary.

    The idea that the news media promotes any candidate is already off the mark where they should be.

    You might very well be right on that. We'll just have to wait with baited breath, or our deepest scorn (as is applicable), until it further unfolds.

    you care about the pubs nominating a "good" candidate?

    and in your opinion, who might that be?

    who "should" the right nominate to defeat your candidate Hillary....
