"On Fox's "Special Report," the comments made about Kerry over the summer were an eye-opening 5 to 1 negative. In September Kerry fared only slightly better, moving from 17 percent to 21 percent positive. Is that because Fox leans Republican -- or provides a balance to the more pro-Kerry networks?" [emphasis mine]Notice that Kurtz DOESN'T do something that's very obvious, and which would actually answer his question: he DOESN'T provide stats for those supposedly pro-Kerry networks. You know why? Because providing stats would prove that the networks AREN'T pro-Kerry, and Howard Kurtz knows it.
The difference between Fox and the networks isn't that the networks are left-biased while Fox is right-biased. Right-wingers LOVE to pretend that that's the case, but it isn't. The difference is that Fox's right-wing bias is blatant and the networks' right-wing bias is subtle. That's all.
So, how about it Howard? Let's see some stats for this supposed "liberal media."
Don't hold your breath.
