Sarah Palin’s most recent Tweet

What would America do w/out Fox News?I’m so thankful for the opportunity to work w/team committed to fair&balanced reporting.Please join us!

I understand her excitement, and I think it’s a great place for her. But why does Fox even use the tag “Fair and balanced” when it’s factually untrue. I’d say the same thing for MSNBC. Be who you are—liberal, conservative. But be upfront about it.

Oy.

  1. Jeff, I actually think this was a dumb move for Fox News. It “dumbafies” them, if that is a word. I think it gives viewers a worse perception of Fox News.

  2. The overexposure will do her in. She’s already overexposed – but in sound bites. If people have to hear her stupid mouth for 10-20 minutes at a time, day in and day out, even idiots will realize she’s an idiot.

  3. just because they give conservatives equal and fair time doesnt mean its far right u know. You cant find a conservative on msnbc or cnn. but u can find plenty of liberals on fox. theres a reason its highly rated

  4. > But why does Fox even use the tag “Fair and balanced” when it’s factually untrue

    Since when has factually untrue ever stopped Fox from doing anything? Creating an alternate reality is what they do best…their entire propaganda philosophy is built on the idea that if you say something loudly enough and long enough then at least a decent percentage will believe it.

  5. “just because they give conservatives equal and fair time doesnt mean its far right u know.”

    Interesting. What does “fair” and “equal” time mean, any way? Fair and equal to whom?

    “You cant find a conservative on msnbc or cnn. but u can find plenty of liberals on fox.”

    That may be true about MSNBC and CNN, but where are the liberals on FOX? If they do truck one out, they’re only there to be made fools of and shouted at.

    Please don’t try to tell anyone that FOX has a podium for liberals to speak, because they don’t.

    And that’s ok. It’s their station, they can say and do whatever they like. But don’t pretend that there is some equal playing field on FOX.

  6. Since MSNBC gave Joe Scarborough a show and shoves Pat Buchanan on every other 10 minutes, they are FAR more “fair and balanced” than Fox will ever be.

    Heck, to balance out Beck, Fox would have to give shows to Bernie Sanders and Michael Moore.
