Fair And Balanced

As a political junkie I was watching the cable news coverage of the President's State of the Union address. I saw our old friend Dick Morris being interviewed by Sean Hannity on Fox. Underneath Morris was the label: Former Clinton adviser. Now people who know about politics know this is true. Morris worked for Bill Clinton during the 1996 campaign. He worked for Bill Clinton right up until the time he was fired. And he was fired for letting a hooker listen in on his phone calls with the president in some random hotel room. This is common knowledge in politics. But to the casual Fox viewer they would just think hey man this guy is some sort of sympathetic Clinton supporter. Right? Well that's what Fox wants you to think. Cause they are fair and balanced.

Later I turned it back over to hear what looked to me like a drunk Chuck Norris stump for Huckabee. Now that was the best thing I saw all night.
