Don't justify this crap.
I hate Fox News. I think it's biased journalism. But don't try to treat this as anything more than a douche bag Professor trying to inject politics onto a classroom. If she had such a problem with Fox News, she would specifically call out MSNBC and Huffington Post here.
A classroom should be an unbiased place. The fact that grades are going to be determined more than likely based on agreement with her political position, is ****ed up.
