    and it's not liberal; imagine that.

    Anderson Cooper called out Sean Hannity for editing a clip of him in a misleading way.

    Lies are just fine at fox.

    They paid the big bucks in court to be able to lie like this without repercussion

    But Hannity is "just an entertainer", so it doesn't count, right? :eusa_eh:

    Fox does it daily and onpurpose.

    Every person makes mistakes from time to time, Fox lies on purpose

    They all do. I think anybody who doesn't think they all do is just gullible. (not accusing you of being one btw).

    Who says they get a free pass? It just seems that way because FOX does it EVERYDAY, so they get hammered for it EVERYDAY. It's their own fault. Nobody made them use "Fair and Balanced" as a trademark. If they're going to be hypocrites, they're going to have to expect criticism.

    Easy to say, but hard to prove. Notice you didn't give us a cite. Typical rightist BS, all talk but no substance.

    At least, at the very least...Fox challenges and attempts to be fair and balanced.
    There are weeks one can see more democrat congress people as quests on Fox.
    Only eyes wide shut with partiality cannot see that the majority of bias in the media is liberal partisan bias seen on most media outlets, ...CNN, NBC, CBS,MSNBC...
    One blatant example recently was when the 'media'...save for Fox, closed their eyes to the union thuggery in Wisconsin, Michigan.....etc.
    Absolute silence about the extreme signs and messages carried by union protestors. (Especially after being in such a fit to condemn Tea Party rallies ...that showed and shows absolute grace and decorum in comparison)
    Ignored death threats to republicans in a two-faced hypocritical call for civility.
    Ignored broken windows and daily vandalism....
    Ignored union protestors who harassed and followed republican senators... (and their families)
    Actually, the examples are so awkwardly copious, it's a poignantly sad commentary on journalism.
