CNN + Fox is fair and balanced.

I will say I like the documentaries from MSNBC.

No.

CNN + Fox is balanced, in that infinity + (-infinity) = 0.

For it to be fair, both would have to be closer to zero.

Glen Beck though... *shudder* ...he makes Fox look like a model of objective neutrality.

THat was what I was going for on that one. Watch them together and you have a n idea of what is really going on.

Here's a fun little trick. Watch a news story about something you are familiar with. THen realize they get everything just as wrong or incomplete.

It could always be worse.

To the OP: Right on. I'm a huge Fan. Glenn rules. His detractors are short on substance and long on ad hominem.

I just feel we're short on hate and half-truths.
