Fair and Balanced

If you were to ask a Democrat, liberal, lefty, or any other creature of the night which news network is the most slanted to either the right or the left, the answer would no doubt be the Fox News Channel. The Left has many names for Fox, none of which I wish to repeat here, but one thing they resoundingly agree on is that Fox News is extremely rightwing.

But Fox News advertises that they are Fair and Balanced.

Are they?

Well, according to a recent study at George Mason University's Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA), Fox News is in fact the most Fair and Balanced network out there.

By the way, overall, the study reported that Hillary Clinton was the candidate most negatively reported (60 percent of the time).

[what a surprise!]

Wow. And if you were to listen to the lefties, you'd think Fox News was hardly the most balanced.

Hmmm, I wonder if that's why Fox News has the best ratings. Could it be because they are actually [gasp] - - - honest in their reporting.


By the way, for those of you that have been waiting for me to give up my recipe for Albondigas Soup - it's posted on my Defender of the Blahs blog.


Oh, and if you want to greet the New Year with Andrea Shea King and The Pistachios, tune in at 11:30 pm Eastern time to Andrea Shea King's radio show, or visit us three hours later on the West Coast on Political Pistachio. Andrea and the Pistachios will greet the New Year on both shows - Join us for the fun!!!
