    That's it! Fox News is Fair and Balanced. And this could be questioned. But by whom ? And how ? In what way ? ???????????

    What does fair and balanced mean? Is FOX News supposed to be an unbiased source of information?

    Metric's please.

    If you have a meter that measures fairness or one that measures balance....let us know.

    Otherwise this is just another troll thread and does not belong in the CDZ.

    I would say they are in the same way MSNBC is.

    Seems there would have to be two things involved. First, a producer that said, "Just the facts" as regularly as Sgt. Friday and second, someone with a stop watch keeping track every time someone veered off the producers instructions to only state facts and assigning an appropriate amount of time for "balance".

    Fox News is fair and balanced. I know Obama supporters will never think so because he gets hammered on that station everyday but he himself causes the coverage with his wreckless actions and inaction's. He blew it when he went after James Rosen. That's when Fox News took the gloves off and they are not going to put them back on. In fact they may slip on brass knuckles in the next two years. There is blood in the water Fox smells it and Obama's poll numbers will be in the twenties by the end of his miserable term in office. And please don't even mention MSNBC in the same sentence as Fox. There is no comparison. Fox news is news... MSNBC is a tabloid news show.

    So I guess we still haven't answered the question: What does fair and balanced mean? There seem to be some differing interpretations of the definition.

    BALANCE means that there are liberals as well as conservatives on the Fox roster. And there are many liberals on Fox. With MSNBC, I can't recall a single conservative there since Pat Buchanan left. Joe Scarborough ? Don't make us laugh.
