    Fair and Balanced? I decide **NO**!!

    Faux Noise:

    Hillary Clinton backer paid $500G to fund women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct before Election Day, report says

    In the article they give their source The New York Times. Fine so far, the article actually says pretty much what Faux says it says (the article doesn't state that the donor was a Hillary backer but they're clearly on that side.) However, the New York Times article isn't attacking Hillary over this--it's attacking both sides.

    G = Grand = 1,000.

    Nobody wants to address the actual point--the biased reporting?

    Probably because nobody here takes your source seriously. Corroborate with another.
    Sure, shooting them in the back is illegal in those circumstances, but e cop getting convicted is not doing any good to the dead guy.

    You don't like the New York Times?

    Besides, my point was how Faux reported the same thing that the New York Times originally reported.

    Oh. In that case they probably just don't care. I dunno...

    Coming in here and saying Fox News is biased is much like walking into a NAMBLA meeting and making a retort, "Did you guys know you all looks like Marlon Brando?"

    Pointing out that Fox news is biased in 2017-18 is as dated as Monty Python jokes. Everybody has already made their minds up.
