    This echos a sentiment shared by Gov. Ed Rendell: http://www.politico.com/blogs/micha...dell_Fox_is_most_objective_cable_network.html

    Tongue-in-cheek? Really? I dunno...

    CNN and MSNBC are way up Obama's butt. Even if you characterize FNC as a ring-wing network, they're at least balanced in covering Villain A vs. Villain B.

    If the reality conflicts with a lib's world view, the fantasy will win out every time.

    So it doesn't matter that the people being covered say they're fair and balanced, that doesn't suit, so it won't be accepted.

    Top Gunna's got it... it's the old "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" thing.

    FOX news has chosen Obama as the probable Dem nominee so they will say whatever they can to damage him. Watching FOX news is like watch a GOP infomercial. I have to give it to them, they have perfected the art of unabashed partisan journalism as they present it as...LOL...fair and balanced.

    More evidence to support my belief that Fox news and the GOP are breaking their backs to get Clinton on the ticket. Back when they thought Clinton was a shoe-in, we heard weekly stories of the likes of Clinton not leaving a tip at a diner. Now that it looks like Obama is a primary win away from cruising to the white house, Fox is trying to derail that train by getting Clinton the nod.

    God, I sure do love some partisan journalism:confused:
