Can you point to the part where they are saying something wrong? If Bush did not serve caviar, the press would be calling him a hick. Are we going to start this crap again?

I love this comment under the article:

lol...did this person really just say
Quote:

Obama love's everybody
. If there is one thing I have learned from Obama's prescedency, he definitely is not a uniter or somebody who loves everybody.

He's just after the young voter. I don't see anything offensive about the article.

Fair and balanced... that's for sure. Not a hint of an agenda in this story at all.

This is the network that sued to assert it's Constitutional right to lie...

John & Wes, fair enough. But have you read Newsweek, LA or NY Times, or watched CNN, MSNBC, etc. lately? Walter Cronkite's opinions lately or Dan Rather in his day. Not exactly in the middle. Fact is, something like 80% + of journalists are Democrats or left. Certainly even a greater percentage of journalism students are left of center. Balanced? I doubt it. Mirroring the general public? Nope. This left a wide opening for FOX and it's viewership proves it.

Polarization of news is a shame and disgrace for journalism. But singling out FOX as if it's the only one not in the center... yeah, right.

Except that they specifically represent themselves as "Fair and Balanced". Those are their words. Statements like that and "We report. You decide." are what make their particular brand of partisan "reporting" so hard to stomach.

Fox set the standard for puppet mastering the public and raking in the bucks. The other networks are just wannabees. When money is involved there are no shortage of corporations who aspire to the lowest form of existance. It's their duty to their stockholders.:rolleyes:
