    Yes, I believe it says a lot that I need to tune into Comedy Central to get stories like these.

    I see yesterday they finally linked to a WSJ story on the topic on the FOX website. Will you believe the WSJ?

    I see they try and shine the most favorable light on it possible.

    So that's OK, IYM. But I stopped watching O'Reilly several years back (after watching for about 6 months) as I got sick of listening to Charley Rangel (Captain Honesty) & Bob Reich (a business hater) being allowed to spout their views. They were regulars on his program.

    Next, you'll be saying Leno is a rightie for having Dennis Miller as a guest more than once .

    IMO, all news outlets are too liberal . The only reason Fox News is considered less so is that they are somewhat more fair & balanced . Have you ever watched Brian Williams wince when one of his favorites is going down in flames?

    Media Matters was started by conservatives and simply provides accurate information when a news source gets a story wrong. That fact that Fox News is so high on their radar is just an indicator of the biased reporting that occurs at Fox.

    do you always hit the bottle before the weekend?

    from wiki: (i know, not rock solid fact 100% but you show me where they are wrong)

    "Media Matters for America (or MMfA) is a media watchdog group organized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Founded in 2004 by journalist and author David Brock, Media Matters describes itself as "a web-based, not-for-profit, progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media."

    David Brock switched from conservative journalist to liberal journalist attacking conservatives several years before founding media matters. you may say that media matters was founded by a former conservative, but thats it. he was a converted liberal when he founded the group.

    Holy Moly...that's far too many syllables for that Dip-dawg to digest. And furthermore, what in the world makes you think he wants to be correct...if it doesn't gore his ox, like most lefties, it's good to go for them.

    And then there's that symbol of independancy...good old DNF, that thinks dudes like Stephanopolis on ABC just joined that august news team by coming up through the ranks of journalism school. How enlightening.

    So, your saying Ted Turner from CNN is unbiased. All companies and every individual have a bias.

    NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, I could go on and on, are all left wing hacks. So what? The right has talk radio and right leaning Fox. Big deal, a cable news outlet with a small overall share.

    But then again you folks won't be happy until there is not one desenting voice.

    SEC, NEA $ every other public employees unions do not operate under the Pretense of unbiased reporting of information to American Citizens. Fox does. For a member of the 4th estate to behave as Fox does not only a travesty of our Democratic Republic, it is extremely dangerous. As is now evidence by the millions of American's that are completely min-informed and confused on major issues of our time.

    For American citizens to allow themselves to be duped by this foreign owned corporation is at the least, a very strong signal of danger to our Republic.
