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.
