    Sure, Fox lets the occasional lefty and righty yell and scream over each other, but that doesn't define fair and balanced. It only gives the appearance, and most who are objective would want to admit it.
    Fox News is the balance, they came late to the party or didn't you know that?

    Yes but all media outlets simply are, in absolute terms, ad agencies directly and indirectly for business interests tied to either party.

    Drudge report, Rush Limbaugh, every media outlet is simply an ad agency. None of them care truly who wins. They care that they're loud enough that they bring in businesses ad revenue. That is all.

    A balance for what? Balanced would be reporting honestly and without bias. It would be a refreshing change to be presented with facts instead of partisan spin.

    It's a shame you don't appear to have interest in applying that standard to any other MSM outlet.

    Lets look at my post again. When I say "balanced would be reporting honestly and without bias" it implies that those competing with Fox are not honest and without bias.
    Assessing FNC factually doesn't necessarily mean that one condones the other channels.

    Er... no, they're not. Some are more progressive leaning than others. CNN tries to maintain a semblance of phony balance by playing devil's advocate on every issue.

    You've fallen for the conservative victimization view that everyone outside your bubble is against you.

    If you feel that every mainstream news outlet is a mouthpiece for your ideological competition, it appears that you have.

    Maybe you should have taken the meaning of my post more correctly, and you wouldn't need to argue with me over what balance means. It's quite clear what I meant by balance.
