so if all these are one sided then you need FOX to be extremely one side the other way to be balanced it out or is this the new math you are using again?  :)

Who mentioned Fox? I don't believe Fox can balance out that much left-wing rhetoric and propaganda. This is why Obama won in 2008, and is most certainly why he won in 2012.

Maybe Breitbart or Drudge...

Drudge could counter anybody. He shapes the news.

i think you missed the second headline.

'Dig Deep'
First lady Michelle Obama is complaining on the fundraising circuit about the evils of money in politics -- while also asking Democratic Party supporters to “write a big fat check” before the November elections.
Michelle Obama complains about money in politics, then asks for 'fat check'

Not a problem, as long as they also have headlines like:

Gifts-for-favors trial set for ex-Virginia governor, wife (referring to GOP governor)

and

Obama tells Netanyahu US worried about mounting deaths

These are just what I found searching from Today's headlines. I've seen plenty of headlines in criticism of conservatives and the GOP.

Actually, NOBODY can counter all those powerful networks, thus my point.

CNN isn't lying by claiming to be impartial?
Everyone has an agenda. Fox is balanced news like Atkins is a balanced diet. Something needs to balance everything out.

CNN does not run a fair and balanced slogen.
However they have their own reasons their ratings are down the drain.
The issue is Fox and they are clearly not a fair news org.
Clearly some here agreed they are not fair but its good because they balance out.... Whatever that means....
But the fair and balanced slogan is a clear lie.

Don't judge the whole channel bases on hannity.
No one really believes that fox is not at all biased as no media outlets these days are truly non partisan its just where In line you place them.
Maybe CNN is fair and balanced because there's nothing biased about plane crashes

But the fair and balanced slogan is a clear lie.

The problem is that the MSM has become so far left that just about anything reported on Fox News is now considered right wing or "Tea Party conspiracies".

The MSM virtually ignored the false reporting on Benghazi, the IRS fiasco, the Fast and Furious fiasco and the Sgt Berghdall swap. But you know what they DID report on? Trayvon Martin! Hours and hours and hours of airtime for Trayvon Martin.

When Fox actually investigates and reports this stuff, they are automatically labeled right-wing. If the MSM gave these stories even a fraction of the airtime that Fox gave them, you would have what to compare Fox against and decide if they are right-leaning, but when they are the ONLY ones reporting on this, how can their position be evaluated?

Now, when Obamacare passes (infuriating conservatives), Bill Oreilly goes on air explaining both sides of the debate, and then invites James Carville - a senior Democratic strategist, to explain the full Democratic point of view on Obamacare. Fox believes that this is considered Fair and Balanced.
