Is Fox News Fair And Balanced, You Ask?

New Sisyphus counts the score:
But is Fox News really "Fair and Balanced?"


Fortunately for us, there is an objective way to measure the claims of the various networks to journalistic integrity and fairness. All it takes it to accept two general propositions, neither of which will excite (we trust) much controversy:

General Proposition One: The most important story and political topic of 2004 was the War in Iraq.

General Proposition Two: The most important news programme in a news network's lineup is its Sunday morning show.

From there, New Sisyphus compares the major news broadcasters to draw a conclusion. It's a worthwhile read.
