Comments on: White House Tries to Bar Fox From Interviews https://stonescryout.org/?p=2485 If they keep silent...

Could be wishful thinking on the part of some folks reading data tables.

I think there are only 5 TV networks plus 2 news services in that group. But Fox has been a part of that pool since 1997.

And heck, even WND gets a seat at press conferences.

But Pew research, and a liberal and former Fox News contributor say that while Fox is biased to the Right, it is less so than the other organizations are to the Left. To complain about Fox and ignore the rest is disingenuous.

(I gotta find that Pew study. Don’t have a link right now.)

I think the specifics are pretty much out, and the other news organizations have weighed in on this. Better late than never, and I’m heartened at this development.

There may be reasonable limitations on “news” organizations that might be put in place. There are many less-than-legitimate “news” groups out there these days. World Net Daily comes to mind.

And certainly Fox News comes at news with an apparent agenda. Still, they are what I would consider a legitimate news group, if flawed. But then, that applies to all news agencies, yes? So, I tend to side with you on this one.
