There is no such thing as “Fox News coverage”. Fox is not a news organization. It is a political platform for the RNC and Mr Integrity ( Murdock). There is nothing wrong with this but to confuse the Fox network with news networks is misleading. This is a free country and if people want to watch hate TV there is nothing anyone should be doing about it. Fox is a modern version of the John Birch Society. It is still legal to promote racism, hate, bigotry and lies, just please don’t call it “news”.
Thank you.

File this post under DUH.

It’s the same reason this blog doesn’t spend much time on topics critical of Obama.

Of course Fox covered the scandal less, and for similar reasons, we should also expect its competitors–i.e., CNN and MSNBC–to cover the scandal more than the hypothetical bias free 24-hour news cable channel would.

I don’t know what these people are talking about—I watched the hearing from start to finish on Fox News without any comm. breaks. So get your facts straight.

Could I ask who’s calling?
