Fox News takes a beating among liberal readers of the Daily Republic. Those folks delight in belittling Fox News as biased and unreliable. When challenged to cite a specific untruth from Fox, in context and never corrected, Foxophobes change the subject.
Is Fox the only source that might be questioned? Some relationships that are generally ignored by national news media are:
This list is not all-inclusive and does not include anyone else who may be partying with, dating or playing footsie with whomever.
Could nepotism-based bias creep into media coverage of the Obama administration? Ben Rhodes’s fingerprints are all over the Benghazi talking points debacle but brother David made CBS look the other way and in the process ran off 20-year veteran Sharyl Attkisson, who came too close to the truth. NBC’s Mark Murray vigorously downplayed the IRS scandal. Is there any connection to his wife’s pending appointment in the administration?
Attackers of Fox News will undoubtedly continue to attack Fox and will lap up whatever “news” is presented by the rest of the news media. Discerning citizens, however, should be cautious in accepting anything offered by the other “news” sources.
