...but the same cartoon could be made with Fox News and any conservative candidate so its not really that insightful. I don't watch either network.
Sure, Fox News vs. CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, NYT, Washington Post, LA Times.... etc.
bdittle...you mean like the way Fox contributer, Williams insulted Ann Romney?
You got it right, Rick!!
I don't agree with your whole liberal media (except for the fair and balance Fox News) argument, but you have to know that that is not how people get their news anymore. Step 1: form your personal opinion that may or may not be based in fact. Step 2: read/watch news from websites/channels that support your view. Step 3: dismiss all other viewpoints as wrong.
I didn't say Fox is fair and balanced. But all the media I listed are extremely biased to the left. And you can try to make an informed decision as best you can, but when you're fed a steady diet of biased news, then your ability make an informed decision is diminished.
Dead on the mark Rick, dead on.
There is no moral equivalency between a network (Fox) that tries to get close to the truth but falls short and networks (NBC - Zimmerman911CallGate, CBS - RatherGate, ABC - BatmanGate, CNN, MSNBC - don't get me started!) that continually distort the truth. That would be like saying the BBC was morally equivalent to Joseph Goebbels in WWII, just because the BBC missed the mark somewhat during that time period.
There is a bias in the news & I think the people are tired of it...even Hollywood is slanted much too far to the left.
The cartoon is right on, as well as both your comments.
