Consider the issue and implications of intentional news media bias. Why are large segments of the American news media audience either unable or unwilling to be better critical media consumers?
In some instances, selling things means not turning off your audience.
Would Rush Limbaugh ever irritate his following by citing the good works of Bill Clinton when president?
Would one expect Fox News to ever be "balanced, fair"? The same rationale..the viewers are looking for gossip, blood, and conspiracy "facts".
Bobpursley is right. I doubt if there is any "fair and balanced" anything.
