News Alert
Considering the meltdown of journalism ethics at The New York Times and now the BBC, I think criticism of Fox News, notably by Michael Moore and Al Franken, et. al is enormously misplaced. Preening on about Right leaning bias at Fox while ignoring the manufactured lies of the Left at the NYTimes and the BBC does nothing but make Fox News' case that much stronger - that it provides a fairer, more balanced scope of news and opinion.

Fox News has yet to be accused of rigging truck gas tanks to explode so as to have a scoop for its news magazine show (NBC), succumb to Jayson Blair style fabrications (new York Times), or hound a government so ruthlessly as to employ whatever lies necessary (BBC). Criticism of Fox rings hollow in the absence of criticism of far greater media crimes.
