You Can't Make This Stuff Up ...

During its May 11 coverage of a small plane coming within three miles of Capitol Hill, Fox News Channel ran a "Fox News Alert" banner, which included the following messages*:

-- "White House and Capitol evacuated"
-- "U.S fighter jets over White House"
-- "Capitol Building evacuation ordered"
-- "Fighter jets tracking small plane 3 miles from Capitol"
-- "RNC headquarters evacuated"

The fifth alert item, about the Republican National Committee headquarters, is interesting. Seems the "Fair and Balanced" network failed to note that the Democratic National Committee headquarters was also evacuated.

As a branch of the RNC media department Fox has an obligation to it's constituents.

If you don't like the site, why do you bother coming to it?

Personally, I find it amusing -- not laugh out loud funny, but amusing nonetheless -- that Fox News is constantly being caught doing obvious conservative media bias.

As long as Fox News proclaims its coverage "fair and balanced," that bulls-eye is mighty large.

Could you imagine the conservative tsunami that would occur if, say, CBS News had used the "fair and balanced," motto first?

If See BS had used the "fair and balanced" motto, everybody would have simply laughed. Frankly, I find Fox refreshing. At least their perspective is evident, while the non-cable media, print media, etc ... continue to hold forth their position as being that of objective, moderate, etc.
