    Fox News hosts and contributors have campaigned for Republican candidates and organizations from coast to coast this election cycle.

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is the largest beneficiary of the Fox News campaigning. Five Fox News figures are advising Romney's campaign, and nine have been featured in a Romney event.

    Fair and Balanced?? More like Fraudulent and Biased!!!

    Shouldn't this thread be in the Media forum?

    BTW, where's the Media Matters report over how biased MSNBC is? And where's your indignant post about that?

    As usual, you fail to distinguish between hard news and opinion, and between fact and fiction. FNC's News programs are objectively more accurate than their competitors, and their opinion shows generally present both sides of an issue. The fact that their liberal commentators are constrained by a "no spin" format is their problem, not FNC's.

    Biased is one thing, supporting and coordinating directly with campaigns is another.

    Why don't they put their conservative commentators under the same constraint? :D

    "MSNBC.com identified 144 journalists who made political contributions from 2004 through the start of the 2008 campaign, according to the public records of the Federal Election Commission. Most of the newsroom checkbooks leaned to the left:
    125 journalists gave to Democrats and liberal causes.
    Only 17 gave to Republicans. Two gave to both parties."

    Got any proof that any Fox News anchors/hosts are supporting or coordinating with the Romney campaign? Media Matters is a far left loon outfit that is engaged in a blood feud with Fox, anything they say without corrorating evidence shouldn't be taken at face value.

    "There is a liberal bias. It's demonstrable. You look at some statistics.
    About 85 percent of the reporters who cover the White House vote Democratic, they have for a long time.
    There is a, particularly at the networks, at the lower levels, among the editors and the so-called infrastructure, there is a liberal bias.-
