Fair and Balanced?

After bitching that MSNBC was acting as a de facto campaign headquarters for Hillary Clinton, I have to mention the goings on at Fox. Since WBZ in Boston announced yesterday that Mitt Romney is now leading in the New Hampshire polls, Mitt and Anne Romney have been on a total of six Fox show segments. Paid Romney ads are running 24/7 and free proms appear frequently. Of course I'm happy to see Mitt get exposure where he can, but I'd be a little hypocritical if I didn't admit that all this Romney PR doesn't amount to exactly what MSNBC does for the Dems.

I haven't been paying close enough attention to MSNBC to observe that they have been humping Hillary. For a guy w/ no TV, you sure do keep abreast of goings-on in that medium.

Just enough, anyway, to get you hot under the collar.

TC... As I've mentioned before, there is a group out in Cali who are ripping off the cable news channels and streaming them over the internet. That's how I know so much about what is on MSNBC and Fox. Honest injun, I really don't have a TV (well, I do, but it's in a box in the garage.)

True that MSNBC irritated me with their pumping of the Hillary campaign and Fox's support of Mitt made me laugh. That's the way of partisanship.

But you won't catch me claiming that Fox isn't right leaning. And as for their opinion shows (O'Reilly and the like), I think they are as outrageous as the next guy, although instead of being "outraged" I just laugh at them. But who else is going to take on Soros if not for O'Reilly? You have to admit, that is an honorable pursuit!
