    Howie, you lost me when you said comedians can't find anything funny about Obama! You need to retract that outragous explanation. I used to think that you were fair.

    I thought it was interesting that the intent of the segment was to look at the fairness of the two networks. To do that they used a study that counted the number of positive and negative stories the two networks reported about Obama and Romney. Apparently RS thinks that "fair" means an equal number of positive and negative stories. However, as a consequence of Romney's frequent lies and distortions, I would expect that a “fair” news network would have more negative stories about Romney. It’s not a matter of fairness – it's a matter of reporting the facts. There are not two sides to facts – they are what they are.

    Both Fox and MSNBC favor each party. When MSNBC makes a mistake they correct it Fox just simply makes stuff up . It should be illegal for Fox to use the word "News" after it's name. They are the biggest source of misinformation. Period. And there were 6 studies done by non-partison independet sites. All all issues, domestic, foreign, etc., the Fox viewer were dead last on every issue.

      Fox News tells the truth. MSNBC lies. Case in point: Chris Matthews spewed to some Romney supporter that the Benghazi attack was due to that stupid video. That has been proven to be a lie. Period.

    According to your discussion, the study cited demonstrated that overall the coverage was very fair – 50/50 pos/neg – when coverage of the polls and the race itself was eliminated. But you didn't revisit the Fox/MSNBC question. Does the distinction there still hold when you eliiminate the "horse race?" You left an important question unanswered but left the headline – is this misleading?

    I refuse to watch "Fixed News" or as they call themselves Fox News programming, therefore I shall never watch this "Republican Sources" or as you call it Reliable Sources again! I'll just read the local newspaper until Meet the Press comes on MSNBC.
