Distorting News

Greg Pierce of The WaTimes reports: "Fox News’ use of the slogan ’Fair and Balanced’ constitutes deceptive advertising, two liberal advocacy groups said yesterday in a petition filed with the Federal Trade Commission.
MoveOn.org and Common Cause assert that Fox News’ reports are ’deliberately and consistently distorted and twisted to promote the Republican Party of the U.S. and an extreme right-wing viewpoint.’
Charging consumer fraud, the complaint calls for the FTC to order Fox News, consistently the highest-rated cable news network, to cease and desist from using the slogan."

I guess this is what happens when someone like George Soros donates more money than you know what to do with, for your cause.

Can we make the claim against CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, New York Times, Washington Post etc that they ’deliberately and consistently distort and twist to promote the Democratic Party of the U.S. and an extreme liberal viewpoint? A much better case can be made for that situation.
