Chaim, this clip definitely does make you question how fair. Did you see the entire program to see if it is taken out of context

Ok, now I watched it. First of all, that is Sean Hannity, not fox news. Also, he could have just said "no"  and then explained

Go Chaim Moskowitz Go...
Finnally some clear talk. Rather then hearing from the right wing propaganda here all day.
At least the CNN doesn't claim to be fair.
I stopped believing Fox has any creditability like 10 years ago.

the thing is there is no defense for FOX. the only defense is to deflect the question to about other news agencies. it is like when you are caught speeding and your defense is the other guy was going faster.

I am really impressed by this spokeswoman's levelheadedness, she seems to clearly understand her stance thus she can clearly articulate it.
Watch this inspiring video.

You were called a jerk because you labeled the entire Fox News as having "zero credibility" based on the way YOU felt about a Hannity interview where the guy refused to answer a yes or no question. You used the term jerk, and so the term was used back at you.

What nonsense. The CNN clip is one of many, many clips I can link here (when I have the time) to show the extreme bias of the network. Nobody has to provide a DEFENSE of Fox News. First prove that Fox News has zero credibility, and we'll take it from there.

As for fair and balanced, look at almost ANY Oreilly interview. He always, without fail, gives the last word to the guest, right or left. FOX also has a complete panel of Democrats in-house, including Juan Williams, Bob Beckel, Geraldo Rivera, Shepard Smith and more... Now go find me that many republicans on a left-wing network.

Just to point out, this is an old interview from 2006. Funny how the same media attacks on Israel come back around every time. This CNN anchor is actually telling this woman that Israel should not use force, they should just shoot down the rockets being hurled at them.

I see. And you came to your own conclusion that they are not fair and balanced? This has nothing to do with your personal political leanings?

Oh, I'm sorry, a democrat must be a liberal fanatic to be considered a democrat? Does Fox need to hire Al Sharpton to prove to you that they are fair and balanced?
