For some reason, it is only recently that we are all talking about and debating Fox News' credibility. The White House's refusal to endorse and work with the most biased "legit" news organization has been met with tons of criticism and whiplash. Having not said anything about this stuff for a while, I feel like finally giving my amazingly awesome 2 cents.

What Fox News is doing is not new and I think people are forgetting this. Fox News has been known to have a skewed perspective on politics for years now and just because the left is in power and fighting back does not mean Fox News was not just as bad before. I once took a political journalism class many years ago and we watched an enlightening and interesting movie called Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism (2004). This movie highlights (with evidence!!!!!!) how Fox News is run and how this bias goes way behind the camera and all the way to the top. Any self respecting journalist should watch this movie and make judgements for themselves. Obviously it may be a little bias on what evidence it shows, but its not like the makers make anything up.

Before we continue arguing about and debating whether Fox News is biased or whether MSNBC is more biased, we should all see this movie. I await the upcoming feature film Outpeacocked: General Electric's War on Red Refridgerators ...
