I don't limit myself to 1 news station. there's always 2 sides to a story. I 
think we both know Fox is biased and so is CNN and in my state non cable 
stations, NBC, CBS and ABC news. 

They all report on their views based on their political views, and believe 
everyone else is wrong. I watch FOX, no doubt about that. O'Reilly is one of 
my favorite on Fox. Hanity and Colmbs on CNN.

I don't think any of the stations are "fair and balanced". Thats just a bunch 
of FOX's hogwash. LOL

My definition of "Fair and Balanced" is when a person listens to both sides and 
deciphers the truth from the fiction in both stories. You should have plenty of 
experience in that arena.

For example, can you remember a time your kids would come running tattling on 
one or the other and you had to listen to both stories in order to get the 
whole truth?

LOL just me ranting on cuz I can't sleep. But worth mentioning nonetheless.
