I've had it. On the one hand, you've got the mainstream far left media, and on the other you've got Fox – in the middle, if ever so slightly right of center. As a result, we're inundated with leftist propaganda, lies, conspiracy theories, and other assorted and sundry distortions, and Fox is trying to give them all a fair hearing.
Because of the "fair and balanced" credo, unionists, Democrats, Gorebalarmists, American Muslims, atheists, and the like are treated as if they were human simply because they are capable of speech. So are parrots, and I've yet to see one on Fox, and they make more sense than the above.
Just today there was a guy on Neil Cavuto's show deriding Walmart for the company's allegedly failing to provide healthcare for 46% of its employees. Never mind the question about why in hell are employers expected to provide healthcare benefits in America. In fact, it should be illegal. But the bigger point is the 46%. Walmart doesn't dispute the figure. That's because so many people get their policies through spouses, for example.
But this wasn't even about healthcare in the overall, it's about unionizing Walmart. See, you manufacture an issue, put it in the worst light possible, and then tell people how you can save them from the agony of disease – even if you do that with a bigger disease – unions, but you don't tell them that.
So here's David Asman sitting in for Cavuto, and he does, in fact, bring up the negatives and the hypocrisy and the deceit, but that doesn't deter union guy, of course, whose job is to ignore facts and stay on message. And what then is a good assman to do?
Well, you could throw the pig out of the studio? But then there goes "fair and balanced." Fox seems to feel that if a particular position has more than a dozen or so advocates, it deserves a fair hearing. So Asman makes his points, Union Jack makes his, and never the twain shall meet.
But it's all very cordial: There's the dig with a smile from Davey, followed by "outrage lite," but in the end, it's all "you've got your troubles, I've got mine," and Satan is told what a brave and stand-up guy he is for being willing to take the heat.
Now, Fox obviously provides a service. I mean, without them, we wouldn't even get a counter argument to positions advocated by the aforementioned scum, except that this dovetails nicely with my criticism of the Republican candidates appearing on Ms. NBC.
On the one hand, the candidates quintuple the audience of America's Most Miserable News Network, and on the other, America's most widely watched news net showcases a liar with an agenda that's bad for the country and innately rotten.
But thanks to everyone for having the courage to come on… Yep, I guess that is the very definition of fair and balanced.
All this proves that Fox doesn't care about you or me – or the environment. I mean all Ms. NBC does for its viewers is cause them to froth. Fox raises your risk of stroke and makes you way hotter than global warming ever could.
So "F" Fair And Balanced… I mean if I were grading it….
