FOX News is a video OP-ED where panelists give their biased opinions, but disguise it as "news" & then claim that its "fair and balanced news." Viewers who actually buy into the ruse end up believing stuff like the polls are skewed towards Dems, the unemployment books have been cooked, etc, etc, etc (see above list.)
That's not true. O'Reilly frequently defines his program as "commentary." I've seen him do it.
Hannity's program is commentary too. Sure they have token liberals. Sure they're NeoCon with some Conservatives but NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN have left-leaning folks for their commentary.
I mean CNN has that British Labor Party bloke from England.
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
