A report by Media Matters for America shows that, in segments discussing health care reform on August 10 and 11, Fox News was hardly “Fair and Balanced.” Looking at opponents of health care reform and those who support reform, Media Matters found that opponents outnumbered supporters six to one. That is 63 opponents hosted vs. only ten supporters for those two days.

This unbalance is not the only problem with Fox News’ reporting. They’ve also reported several falsehoods recently about health care reform, including editing Obama’s comments.

    I think it is time for someone with distinction to sue Fox News for false and misleading advertising. Every time they run that “fair and balanced” crap, they are violating the law by making false and misleading statements.

  2. I keep Fox News on during business hours for my clients because it is the number 1 cable news channel in the country. I support Fox news and detest MSNBC. I am not alone. Fox blows all other networks out of the water with their high ratings. Good luck trying to pull this rediculous stunt to sue them. Actually you are all quite funny. We laugh at you in your sissy fits. Keep listening to the likes of Chris Matthews and some day you will witness his complete breakdown on the air. Morons
